I recently buy a new keyboard (Logitech) for my old K6-2, which only have old keyboard connection. I use an adapter to PS/2 so I can plug it.
But the computer doesn't recognise it. Curiously, if I start with my old keyboard and AFTER booting, during Windows loading, I change to the new keyboard, it works perfectly. It even recognises the new one after one or two restarts, but then again it fails and I have to do the trick again (and as you guess it's quite annoying).
I don't thing it's a bad connection due to adapter, because then it shouldn't work when I switched after booting, and it works perfect.
I already installed the driver and utilities, so this is not the reason, IMO.
Ideas? Suggestions? I'm almost sure it's something quite stupid and easy, but I don't know what. Thanks for your advice!
Still looking for a <b>good online retailer</b> in Spain :frown:
Some time ago there was a switch in keyboards between the XT and AT standards. If your system is XT standard (big connector) you will run into problems like this... I would suggest you take it back and make sure you get one that specifies XT/AT/ATX compatibility.
