First of all, thanks for reading my thread. Most people don't care.
I have a old computer, and the keyboard is connected via PS2. One day I accidentally took the cable out from PS2 while the computer was on. I put the cable back in into the PS2 slot, however keyboard didn't work. This happened to my mouse, and I bought a USB cable for it instead, and it worked. So I searched for a USB Keyboard, and I found a wireless keyboard + mouse with USB. It works great, however there is a problem.
When I try to reinstall, I put the cd in the cd-rom and restart. It comes to the part it says "Press any key to start with the cd.." (or something similar) and whenever I press any key nothing happens. There is always something for wirieless keyboards and mouse that shows if they are connected or not, and it shows that they are not connected..I tried to connect them as soon as I restart however it won't work.
So this stops me from reformatting.. sadly. I also think this wireless keyboard and mouse have made my computer pretty much laggier, I am unsure about this but I want to know if it's possible. It's no rush on this question but I would love to get some help on how I should reformat.
Keep in mind nor mouse or keyboard PS2 ports work, they are broken.
Thanks, if anyone dosen't understand I will make this long story to a short and quick one and explain
I tried this.
I plugged in the keyboard PS/2 slot and put the mouse in the USB one. Didn't work, tried with two different keyboards (PS/2).
How I exactly did
Turned computer off, took out the USB port for the wireless keyboard and mouse, took the USB mouse and put it in the USB slot, grabbed the old PS/2 keyboard and put it in the slot. Started computer. It comes up something with memory testing.. I have to press ESC to make it stop or wait like 5 mins or so for it to finish, ESC won't work so I waited..started..logged in as Administrator and put CD in..restarted (using mouse all the time) ..then the part with "Press any key" came..I pressed a couple keys whoever it didn't work.
Thanks for trying,
Any other ideas?
