i am running xp on a hp pavilion and am having trouble with my mouse and keyboard using ps/2 connection.first the bottom letters stopped working then the whole lot,followed by the mouse. i assume its a problem with the ps/2 hardware in the computer.but before i take it to bits is ther anything i should know
So what you're saying is you have tried another keyboard and mouse on the PS2 connector and its the same, is that correct?
If so then you could try deleting and reinstalling the keyboard and mouse drivers, reinstalling all the motherboard drivers and run system file checker to check for corrupt windows files are reinstate them. click here
If none of them does the trick then it may well be the motherboard itself has a fault.
