PS/2 Keyboard not Working

I just had a 761GXK8MB (with Athlon 64-bit CPU and new power supply) installed into a Dell Dimension chassis. I tried using a PS/2 keyboard (two different ones) along with serial or USB mouse, and it would hang up (or delay a long time) in POST whenever I kept the PS/2 keyboard plugged in and pressed keys. Even if it booted I could not use the keyboard in Windows. I finally had to buy a USB keyboard as solution. I checked BIOS Setup and didn't see anything I thought would cause this behavior. Why would the PS/2 keyboard not work?

    I don't mean to be contrary, but doesn't the Super I/O contain the PS/2 controller and the "south bridge" contain the USB controller? I'm not sure how the north bridge would cause this, so please elaborate. I thought it might be more likely a problem with BIOS settings, or maybe a bad solder joint on the PS/2 connector.

Ps/2 means the north bridge chipset is going ( just not totaly dead though ) in time you may notice the usb may not work at 2.0 speeds

Sorry nobody on this planet can repair a ps/2 unless another motherboard is purchased .

Trying to upgrade a Compaq SR1020NX computer. The HP website still has old info, likely based on the original bios. The motherboard is an Asus A8M2N-LA. What CPU upgrades will run on that board? Is there...


The ASUS A8M2N-LA is the motherboard used by HP for the new D4500e AMD AM2 PC.

Here are the details:
Motherboard manufacturer's name: ASUS A8M2N-LA
HP/Compaq name: Nodus-GL8E

The main thing is before you go swapping cpu there are some things to consider. 1. the new processor may draw more power than your current power supply can push out. 2. it will probably generate a lot more heat...both are bad..

But if you insist you can get away with an Athlon 64 X2 5600 or 6000+ cpu be careful though because some have different voltages which may not work with your board.

hope that helps.

Your existing CPU will not work with that motherboard. The AM2+/AM2 processor slot is for AMD processors only. For this motherboard, you will need one of the following processors: Phenom FX / Phenom / Athlon 64 FX / Athlon 64 X2

Usually the heat sensor on either the CPU or the mother board through the BIOS software ajusts the sped of the van. Are you talking about the CPU fan , The Main case fan or the power supply one?

Hi jdnimrod,
This is not you're first post about the Foxconn mother board.
You have an issue with the PS2 keyboard as well. This Foxconn model ( 761GXK8 you listed ), is not 100% correct.
Please check this link:
http://www.foxconnchannel.com/EN-US/searcher.aspx?key=761GXK8
Find which is you're board.
Than post back into this answer.
It is important you run the exact CPU that is compatible with the mother board.
