Oldman that not a bad idea I have seen a usb to ps2 adapter yesterday morning when I was buy a mobile phone charger at the computer store, and I will try that adapter trick only cost around $4.00 instead of thinking buying another $90.00 keyboard comes with a PS2 connection.

A cheap USB to PS2 adapter, like the ones that come with a PS2/USB mouse, will only work if the device (in this case your keyboard) has both PS/2 and USB interface circuitry. The adapter just physically rearranges the connections.

grab a usb to ps2 adapter. They're usually quiet easy to find.

Good morning and G'day,

Oldman that not a bad idea I have seen a usb to ps2 adapter yesterday morning when I was buy a mobile phone charger at the computer store, and I will try that adapter trick only cost around $4.00 instead of thinking buying another $90.00 keyboard comes with a PS2 connection.


It really is a pain with no standardisation in the different BIOS interface makers screens out there.


Yep I have seen way to many different BIOS interface makers out there and they are a real pain in arse, everytime they created something new and new motherboard makers too because BIOS is different for different motherborad design......make me wonder WHY! Aaaaaaaaah.


If all you need is a cheap ps/2 keyboard, have a look here:

I've follow your instruction run the chkdsk c: /f and type Y (yes) no problem so far, and reboot the computer.

During the boot up the checkdisk screen came and it asking me to hit any key before 8 second it up, the keyboard did not responed my command keep mind the new Logitech G15 keyboard USB connection is still working because all the keyboard letters glow in blue the Num Lock light show up on the top right keyboard on every other normal keyboard as normal.

All the keyboard letters still glow up in blue and will not interrupt the checkdisk before 8 second when I hit any key.

Hmm, I'm afraid if even Microsoft ('s program) can't work with the keyboard in this case, the problem is not in avast!... Maybe the keyboard Windows drivers aren't loaded soon enough, or something like that  :-\

To post a jpg here on the forum, right below where you type is a heading called additional options. Click it and you will be able to attach the jpg. Just make sure it's not to big in physical size.
