Hmm, Interesting
Because the Laptops mostly do not have the PS2 Port,
if you are using the converters connecting the USB to the PS2.
then It may be the junction related issue.
so find a USB mouse and connect it directly or try with another Converter.
that should work.

Can HP Model 5189 keyboard be used with a Laptop ?


Is the plug round? If so, your laptop may not have a socket for it. If the plug is kind of flat, then the laptop should work fine with it. The flat plug is called, "USB", the round one, "PS2"

I am trying to use my Dell keyboard with my Toshiba laptop through a PS2 to a USB adapter. The message is that the USB is not recognized.


I would believe that it could be the Ps2/USB adapter is broken. From personal experience I have never found a Ps2 to usb adapter not to work. I used it for multiple devices on both ends (using it on Ps3 with a PS2 keyboard or mouse, for example).

It's also the dell keyboard is defunct.

Some keys on my laptop`s keyboard doesn`t work such as g, h, backspace, fn and the windows button, what can I do?


Hi, if you spilled liquid on the keyboard then it probably needs to be replaced,
Try this... you can remove the keyboard by removing certain screws from the bottom of the laptop, then you open the laptop like if you are using it look to for sliders around the keyboard edges or if it just snaps in place, use thin flat screw driver to carefully remove the keyboard but do not pull far.. it should still be attached with a wide flat cable to the main board... now lets try to remove the cable completely and re-attach it ( when removing the cable use your small flat screw driver to pull the plastic connector snaps from the sides of the connector to loosen the cable and be careful not to break the connector, when attaching back put the cable in first and hold it while you push the connector plastic back in place)... try the computer to see if the problem is gone, if not then order another keyboard and replace it. best of luck

I have an usb adapter for old ps/2 keyboards, which I tried using for the Dell SK8110 Keyboard. But unfortunately, my laptop needs to install this keyboard's driver for it to function. Any idea where I can...


I think you do not need a driver. Generally ps2 keyboards are detected automatically and work just fine. Still you may go to device manager and un-install the keyboard from there. Then reboot the machine. When it starts again it should detect the modem again.
Note, if you are using a usb mouse please change it to ps2 mouse.

Dell laptop says it doesm't recognize HP wired USB mouse


If it doesn't recognize the device try going to the HP site and downloading a driver for the mouse that will work with the operating system you have.

If that doesn't work out then try uninstalling any mouse software you might have on your computer then reinstall the driver and it should work. If not then you might need to reinstall the OS.

My HP laptop keys are not being recognized. I have rebooted many times. I'm not sure if I pressed a sequence of keys to make this happen or not. Please help. I am having to use voice recognition to type...


Try using a USB or PS2 external keyboard to see if that works. If it does, then there is a problem with the keyboard on the laptop. I would then try reinstalling the driver for the keyboard to see if that helps. You would go into Device Manager to reinstall the driver. Let me know if this helps you.

Compatible?


As long as you can plug it into the laptop, it should recognize the keyboard straight away. With a laptop in mind make sure you get the usb version of the keyboard (that is if your laptop is modern enough to have usb ports).

Dell laptop c600 key board


Buzzy, Yes you can connect an external keyboard to your PC. Some newer ones no longer have the round, PS2 connector so in that case you?ll need to use a USB keyboard. Please note that if you go the USB route you should start your PC and log in first, and then connect the keyboard. Windows will then load the drivers and you should be good to go. Let us know how it goes and please don?t forget to rate this post.
