Hi, I hope someone could help me. My PS2 keyboard suddenly stopped working. I tried the keyboard in another computer and it still works. So the problem must be in the PS2 port or motherboard. To save myself from buying a new motherboard, I want to try this keyboard on the USB port by connecting a PS2-to-USB adapter. Will it work? What driver do I need to install? BTW, my motherboard is an Amptron K7830LM and my CPU is a Duron 900.

Thanks in advance for any help or info you could share.

an adapter WILL work.

however you may be able to get a new keyboard for cheaper LOL. depends how good the current keyboard is.

but i'd recomend looking at a USB keyboard which i think only cost about $10
