At this stage, I would take the motherboard out of the case completely and rebuild the machine paying attention to the screw holes and marking them on the motherboard correctly in case if you didn't do so originally.

I can't really think of anything else except it being a bad motheboard!

My computer mouse and keyboard not functioning well. I replace the keyboard but only last a month.


Hi jhunix,

I'm going to need even more information; The devices that use PS2 connections, which device is it, and how many of those devices do you have?

One thing that might be a problem, if the issue you see is intermittent, I would check the PS2 connector and see if the pins are bent or broken. PS2 connector pins sometimes will bend or break and this can cause some connection issues if not completely stop the keyboard/mouse from working... Also given the age of your PC the PS2 port may just be bad, but this is not a fatal injury to a computer.

Replacing the Keyboard and Mouse with a standard USB keyboard and mouse, should resolve all of your issues.

PS2 is an older technology that keyboards and mice used to run on; Now however USB connections are used.

Further more, if this an HP Desktop with 2 USB ports on the front, and 4 USB ports on the back, you will want to avoid using the 2 USB ports on the front, especially on older HP and Dell Desktops, the reason is the power supplies often do not have enough power to run multiple USB devices on the front USB ports.

The back ports should be fine regardless of the number of devices.

Hope this helps.

Why can't I get a new usb mouse and keyboard to work on a very old Win98SE system that has working usb ports, but the old mouse and keyboard were ps2 connection?


You need to go to the manufacturer of both the keyboard and the mouse web sites and download the windows 98 drivers for both of them and install them.

What is the problem? Do the usb ports work? Try different usb ports. If you can get into the Bios or System Setup check to make sure the USB ports are enabled.

Mouse 6 pin ps/2 port on back of HP Pavilion Media Center TV m7680n not working it is enabled in bios where can i buy one online i need mouse and keyboard ps/2 ports to go ...


You are using the correct terminology.
Ps2 mice are far and few between. Use a USB mouse, likewise keyboard and add a USB to PS2 adapter.

I was sold a mouse...with a round end....where is the portal on the computer?


That end is a PS/2 connector most modern day laptops do NOT have this connector, you need a USB Mouse, I suggest you take it back and try and swap it, for one compatible with your PC.

USB Keyboard and mouse wont work with PS2 KVM with adapter


Have you tried rebooting once it is connected? Not sure if it makes a difference, but I know you can not hook up PS2 peripherals without rebooting.

How to disable ps2 on GA-8IR533 Motherboard


PS2 is usually disabled In the BIOS under ADVANCED or PORTS, but if that option is not available, I suggest you purchase PS2-to-USB adapters, then use your usb mouse and usb keyboard in the ps2 ports. Personally, I love ps2. id rather use USB for my cameras and scanners and drives rather than wasting those ports on a kb and mouse.

How do i connect my PS2 with my PC


on the back of your computer box, you will (probably) find 2 ports that look like this. the PS2 mouse will be plugged into the green colored port. NOTE: PS2 mice (and keyboards) will only fit into the port ONE DIRECTION, so don't force it! make sure to line it up

once plugged in, you will need to reboot your computer, as PS2 can only be recognized while the computer is starting up.

one final note: some of the newest computers DO NOT have PS2 ports. if this is true of your computer, you will need to get a new mouse, or an adapter, like the one shown below:b6b70e7.jpg

HELLO


is your mouse and keyboard plugged into a PS2 connector http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Ps-2-ports.jpg
look inside of your case and see if any capacitors are buldging on your motherboard the tops of the capacitors should be level/flat if they're ok, sounds like they are going, look for brown rusty color also around tops of capacitors, might be your outputs are going. If you have your mouse and keyboard plugged into ps2 ports try a USB Mouse and keyboard, borrow one first or buy a usb laser mouse for $12 worth a try even if your ps2 ports are blown, use the usb ports for mouse/keys ;)
