I do not know if this is a Vista problem but am making that assumption. I have a new Gateway LX6810-01 and did not care for the tiny keyboard that came with the new unit. I picked up a Microsoft comfort keyboard 2000, wired with USB end and attached a PS2 adapter to it. I plugged it in the same slot as where the Gateway board had been which was a PS2 keyboard and no joy. I unplugged removed the adapter and plugged it into a USB port and Vista picked it up stated correct driver was there and it was ready for use. It works fine with USB port. I would much rather use the PS2 port as I am limited on number of USB ports. I tried a few different adapters on the end of the USB cord in case one was faulty but none are recognized. By the way I had the computer off while changing things around to avoid any controller issues, and as the gateway keyboard worked and I did still find the driver for it would a recommendation be to delete that driver and install latest software from Microsoft site?
Any help would be appreciated to get it to work on the PS2 port.
