  1. Hi
    I wonder if anyone can help with this problem.I have been using a PC for about 10 years and while not completely dumb I am no kind of expert.

    The problem is that my ps/2 and usb slots on my motherboard have ceased to work,quite a while ago and I have been getting by on devices run on a USB 2.0 card.
    All the devices ie modem, keyboard, mouse,and a music keyboard are, even with a powered hub are becoming a bit too much and I would like to reinstate the ps/2 for keyboard and mouse at least.
    I am guessing that I could sort this out in the BIOS, but I cannot access it in the usual way because of the USB keyboard.
    I would be glad of any advice
    Thanks in advance
    Bert

    Please put your System Specs information in your Profile

    If you have a brand name computer (like Dell; HP; or other) please place the Computer name & Model number in your Mobo field of your Profile

    By the way, I've had PS2 ports fail as well
    Usually not a bios settings fault, but an actual hardware fault with the motherboard

    When PS2 ports fail, yes, typically it's a motherboard fault, not BIOS.
