Computer is killing keyboards

  1. Hey everyone, new to the forum.. got a problem though..

    I have two computers..
    The second computer's keyboard wasn't working, so of course, I tried the first diagnosis.. I took another keyboard(the one from my 1st computer), and plugged it in, unresponsive.
    Great, I figure it's a problem w/ the computer.
    Go to plug the keyboard back into the 1st computer, no luck, the keyboard is dead, it seems.
    Happen to have a 3rd keyboard, I get that, use it for a while on the first, try it on the second... All this leads to is a total of now 3 non-responsive keyboards..

    I do have a 4th keyboard though, and that's what I'm using right now on my first computer, and I wouldn't dare go plug it into the second computer right now.. as it's already killed three keyboards..

    Anyone have any idea what happened? Are my keyboards dead for good?
    It's the PS/2 port btw.. Should I just totally forget it, and get a USB keyboard for that computer?
