Use an older keyboard on a newer computer? My wife likes the feel of the old one.
why not buy a real keyboard. for USB?
vast types, even for $8.
hp what you never side what HP puter.??
hp made them for 33 years, 1984 to now.
my guess newer HP, like 10 years or newer
and has USB ports
then you found a USB to PS/2 adaptor (vast types exist)
but many dont work. right.
btw this is classic failure from 1999 to to now.
endless posts world wide,,,
the trouble is the PS2 keyboard, send commands very different that USB does.
Try this go to bios and turn on legacy USB>
maybe it can see he keyboad at boot (bios sees t first)
then BIOS passes this discovery to windows 10..
ive not touched or seen a PS2 keyboard, in years.
like year 2000?> 18 long years ago.
im old. worked them all.
PS/2 >>>>>adaptor >>>> USB modern system.
the adaptor must do 2 things, send power correctly to the KBD.
then translate PS/2 sings to USB sigs.
then BIOS needs to understand plug and play IDs from PS2
if missing IDs, or garbled, its born dead.
good luck there.
btw your pc is not PS2 certified so....
