My husband and I have two Playstation 2's. My keyboard has been having issues lately (it'll stop working and/or the letter will be stuck and repeat) we believe it is a USB Port Issue.
We believe it is a USB Port issue since we have traded the keyboards/adapter/cables from the working PS2 port to the other PS2 port and the same issue presents itself. The keyboard/adapter/cables from the non-working PS2 was traded with the working PS2 port and the keyboard will then work properly.
Is there anyway to fix this issue? I have tried cleaning the port.

Re: USB Port Problems
Hi Jen Storm,
It is probably dirty on the inside. My guess is that Dust has built up on the motherboard and some moisture in the air has turned it to a conductive dust. This will casue a probably like you are seeing. Either Clean it up real good yourself or send it to a repair shopp. If you are looking for arepair Shop, Click on "Repair Directory" at the bottom of this screen, and Click on "Video Game Consoles" Pick a good Repair shop in your Area, or Nation.

The honest truth is its probably just going bad. If you've had that computer for years now the connections may just be wearing out. Especially If it has been under heavy use. There a couple things to check. Such as updated keyboard drivers and other software updates. But its most likely at this point a hardware issue. I would look into upgrading to new computer.
1. Save your work.
2.Restart the computer.
3. If itdoesn't solve the issue get a can of compressed air and blow your keyboard, gentle with your finger nails do like if you are lifting the key as you blow it and it should remove any debris stuck under that key.
depending of your skills on computers I would take the keys off the keyboard and wipe it up.
If none of those options works your final choice will be replace the keyboard!
There's more than likely something sticky in your keyboard, someone probably spilled liquid in there and now it's sticking as though your pressing even though you aren't. A new keyboard will fix this problem.
Good day. I'll advise you to purchase a new keyboard because the the letter are already not correct which means the keyboard is already broken and there's no way to fix it. Im sorry but that's the only solution that can resolve your issue. Hope this information help you. Have a great day to you.
This is likely caused by a stuck key somewhere on the keyboard. A computer's BIOS will beep repeatedly if it is receiving too much input when booting, like if you were holding down a letter key while starting up. By pressing other keys you're probably breaking the repeating input which is why it stops beeping and works normally.
My recommendation would be to check all of the keys on your keyboard to see if any of them are stuck down or generally sticky, or if any of them appear damaged in any way.
If they are not, it may be a problem in the connection from the keyboard to the laptop's motherboard, which would likely require the laptop's keyboard to be replaced, which can be a tricky process. I definitely advise consulting a professional to do a repair like that.
The letter "H" on your keyboard got stuck and it's like pressed down all the time. You can pop out the key then clean it. If the issue is resolved, you should not hear the beeping sound anymore when you boot up the unit. Or better yet, if your under warranty, contact Toshiba, 1-800-457-7777 and they'll be blad to repair your keyboard.
