Hello.......I had a Emachine T2200 model and it died as all Emachine do of a early death, and I needed the information on my hard drive as the motherboard of the Emachine had died and not worth replacing.......I had a computer custom made that installed my old hard drive as well as a new one, plus a lot more Ram and other goodies. but when I attempted to attach my old EMacine keyboard I saw that the USB needed to go into the PS/2 port, so I get an adapter......I hook it up and I get nothing!!!....the computer don't see the old keyboard, so I check the Control Panel and it said it was already using a 101 standard keyboard....The EMachine keyboard is a multi media type, more keys and function....my question is "How can I make this new computer use my EMachine old keyboard?

Did you install the right drivers for it?

I not sure I understand this correctly, is you keyboard connected normally through a USB port? If it is and you had problem with it you need to enable it in the BIOS. I don't understand why on a new build that surely would have multiple USB ports you would need a PS/2 adaptor.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
