Hello everyone,
I need some help for a friend of mine. She uses a ps2-keyboard. It worked fine for more than a year but now its locks up frequently. It works fine for, say, an hour, and after that does not respond anymore. The mouse works fine. I checked hardware status, fine, drivers, up to date, virusscans, nothing. I also checked the hardware, connects fine, no problems. Can someone give me a clue of what is wrong here??
Thank you very much.

regards, Elise

Have you tried this keyboard on another computer, or another keyboard on this computer?

Have you looked in the Device Manager to see if there are any errors with the keyboard?

Try uninstalling the drivers for the keyboard in the Device Manager, reboot the computer and the installation wizard should find native drivers for the keyboard and install them. Sometimes drivers become corrupted.

I cannot test the keyboard, because she has no other PC near. Device manager is checked, drivers appear to be okay.

It would be worth taking the keyboard to a computer shop just to see if it is working. I can't see a reasonable tech charging just to see if it is working. Make a couple of calls around and see if there is a shop near you that would check it out for free. Once you have done this you will know if the problem is with the keyboard or not.

I think I figured out the problem. The harddisk of her PC has 1,8 GB free space left. The keyboard doesn"t lock entirely up, but its reaction is very slow. I let her remove a bunch of musics, unnecessary programs, and afterwards I hope whe doesn't have any problems left.
Thank you for your opinions and suggestions!

regards, Elise
