Convert Ps2 Keyboard To Usb Without Adapter

I was wondering if i could instead of going out and buying a usb adapter for my keyboard, i could use my spare usb cord and cut off the usb conector and solder it to my ps2 keyboard. I do know that i might need drivers if i could do this.

Usb Works With Keyboard And Mouse But Won't Read Usb Stick

Hello guys, i've this problem since some time. My keyboard and mouse work properly but the system seems to fail in reading usb sticks. They do appear in my computer but when i access them it either says " f: is not accessible. Impossible to satisfy your demand because of peripheral error e/s ", or, it allows me to enter it but there are no files listed. The stick works ok in other machines and there are files on it. It also takes a long time for the system to see the stick. I did have some viruses but now the comp is clean as i ran all the programs suggested in networking&security section of this forum. Help!

Can't Install New Mouse And Keyboard ( Both Use Usb )

I need some help installing a new mouse and keyboard i bought, obviously hence the title. Both use usb cables, but i have a different problem for each. Mouse- the instructions for the mouse are simply to plug it in to a usb port and off you go. The problem is my computer recognizes the name (microsoft wireless mouse, etc. ) But puts it in the other devices section in device manager. Oh, and it doesn't work at all. Any advice? Yes i turned the mouse on. Keyboard- the instructions for the keyboard (g15 logitech gaming keyboard) say to first install the software that came with it. During installation it says it will prompt you to insert the keyboard into a usb port. But that never happened. The software installed perfeclty but didn't ask for the keyboard to be plugged in. Afterwards, i tried plugging in the keyboard but the computer didn't even recognize it as a keyboard, it just said found g15 logitech, found new hardware-> new hardware wizard pops up. I ran that but no help at all. The keyboard doesn't even turn on when plugged in. (It has an lcd screen and illuminated keys).

Dell Dimension E510 Usb Keyboard And Mouse

I am fixing a dell dimension e510 for someone, all it has is usb, no ps/2. When i boot the system, install wizards will run for the usb mouse and keyboards, but i cant click next or tab/enter because the system will not apply a generic usb driver so the devices can function. I have tried 3 different mice, and 2 keyboards. I did find that if i insert a windows xp cd it picks up a driver but it is not digitally signed and i cant click on "continue anyways". I am baffled.

Usb Keyboard And Mouse Work In Bios But Not After Xp Loads

Usb keyboard and mouse work in bios; but once xp pro loads, they're no go, why? The red optical light on the mouse turns off and the keyboard doesn't work. How come? The usb ports are fine, since both work in the bios. Is there something missing from xp drivers?

Two Way Switchers For Dvi And For Usb / Ps2 Keyboard, Mouse

I'm looking to control which computer can send data to one of my monitors. I use dvi cables, and would like something nice but not too costly! Also, i would love it if i could do the same thing to my keyboard and mouse. It's a logitech set with wireless and i believe a wired option - any ideas short of popping the logitech wireless donggy back and forth (which isn't horrible).

Kvm Switches And Usb Wireless Mouse / Keyboard

I recently bought an iotech kvm switch that has usb connectors. I intended to use my wireless mouse and keyboard setup, which only uses a usb wand to control both. Turns out iotech doesnt support wireless devices. While it does work, it occasionally causes a 'fatal' exception and crashes xp. So . This is obviously not workable. I was hoping someone had run into this before and could let me know how they got around the problem? Is there anyone here who is currently using a kvm switch that supports wireless usb devices?

Usb Keyboard / Mouse Losing Connection Constantly

I have keyboard/mouse, external hd, printer and i have the hub connected to ac power adapter also. Problem is the keyboard and mouse keeps cutting out constantly for like a quick second then it comes back on, the printer and external hd seem to work fine. The keyboard and mouse do not do this when directly plugged into separate ports on my laptop (dell 6400). This is actually the 2nd usb hub i have tried, the first one did this same thing and i thought it was faulty so i tried a different one, but i'm having the same problem. I have tried with just the keyboard/mouse plugged into the hub, but it's still losing connection. Any ideas?

I am using the usb hub http://www.Newegg.com/product/product.aspx?Item=n82e16817111831

Use A Kvm Switch For Usb Keyboard / Mouse Switching

So i'm going to have another computer set up next to my main computer, and i was planning on leaving the main pc hooked up to my monitor's dvi input, and the secondary pc hooked up to the monitor's vga input. Then i just have to hit the input button on the monitor to switch between them. But i also want to use my current usb keyboard/mouse for both pcs. So i figure a kvm switch is what i need for that, but i cannot seem to find a kvm switch without the "v". Not sure how obvious this is, but i am a little confused, can i use a kvm switch just for usb keyboard/mouse switching? I'd rather leave the video input swapping to my monitor since it has multiple inputs.

Advent Usb Wireless Mouse And Keyboard Problem

Recently, my 'advent' usb wireless mouse and keyboard stopped working. Originally, i had some problems since the first day with the driver that it installed being 'incompatible', even though the mouse and keyboard functioned properly. Anyway, they stopped working. So i shut down and removed the wireless receiver, then plugged in an old ps/2 mouse and keyboard, expecting them to work in the old ones place. No such luck. :-/

The computer's 'install wizard' comes up and it finds the mouse, but i can't interact with the computer to install the mouse or keyboard. Also, the keyboard's numlock, capslock etc. ' key are lit up, so that's working but not being recognized. I'm using 'windows xp' and this is the first problem i've had

Any ideas?

Usb Problem - Pc Beeps Fast And Disconnects Mouse, Keyboard

When i plug in datacable for my w700 phone into any of the ports the computer starts to beep really fast and disconnects the mouse and keyboard, but the computer itself isn't frozen because i can still see the cursor changing shape. Restarting with the cable inside will result in freeze during dos (before getting into windows). I tried the cable on another computer and it worked fine, and my computer has already been using various usb components(camera, wireless adapter, webcam etc) without a problem. I've searched the internet for hours but can't seem to find the solution, has anyone ever encountered this problem or know what beeping and freezing mean when plugging a usb cord into the computer?

Convert Printer Cable Usb

Parallel printer cable to usb, xp, and the hp laserjet 5l. I am attempting to hook up an hp laserjet 5l to my desktop running xp. When i plug in the parallel cable (which came with useless software, ebay cheapy), windows installs usb printing capability, but does not recognize the 5l. I have tried downloading the drivers from hp, and using windows versions of both the 5l and 6l. I have also tried removing the usb printing support and reinstalling it. I am out of ideas. After reading through all of the threads on this forum and others, i am stuck. Note: i have had newer printers hooked up to this machine that have printed via usb fine, but not with this cable.

Keyboard / Mouse Not Recognized After Driver Upgrade For Usb Game Controller

I had a mobo upgrade 2 months ago. I run windows xp. I installed vista transormation pack 2 weeks ago. Everything was running fine untill i decided to upgrade the driver for my usb connected game controller. After restart, windows booted fine but can't used keyboard or mouse. Both were connected through ps2 ports. Tried disconnecting them and connecting them again, power down and few other things but no success. I then also tried using usb connected mouse and it does not work. I tried repairing windows installation with xp cd but i can not select i agree tab upon repair reboot (basically cant still use keyboard and mouse), leaving me with no choice but to make fresh install.

Convert Usb To Firewire Or Vice Versa

Is it possible to convert usb to firewire or vice versa? I only have 1 free pci slot, but i need both types. I really do not want to buy a combo card because i already have a usb 2. 0 card and a firewire card that i can use. The reason i have both is that i got a usb 2. 0 card because i needed more usb slots for my compact flash drive and other things, but then for christmas i got a camcorder that doesn't use usb 2. 0 so i bought a firewire card. Anyway, i really think i need the extra 2. 0 ports again.

Keyboard / Mouse Unresponsive

I had put in my usb flash drive, then my computer rebooted, so the computer boots back up, and now the keyboard and mouse functions do not work, i can no longer log into windows. I thought maybe it was a random thing, so i reboot again and it does the same thing, no response from my input devices. So i check to make sure these devices are still working by hooking them up to my other pc, sure enough, they still work. So then i test to see if i can even get into the bios. Well, thankfully i can, so it must be something while booting to windows after the post, cause the computer sees the hardware and lets me use it during setup, but not on the windows login screen. I even tried different ports, and different keyboard and mice ( ps2 and usb ) and they all will not work on this now dysfunctional pc. Can somebody help me as to why this is happening? This is rather strange, i changed no setting. Why working only in bios?

Keyboard / Mouse Freeze On Xp

The mouse always works until you try to type something, and then the keyboard and mouse quit working. The computer itself is not frozen. Sometimes the computer has to be restarted 5+ times to get it to work right. Do you think it is an issue with the keyboard, or the ps/2 ports? I could not find a virus. It has a cheap lite-on keyboard and roswill mouse.
