  • My keyboard won't work

    Why? It's not the keyboard. I switched keyboards and the other doesn't work.
    I'm asking from the job.

    Thanks.

      And is it USB- or PS/2-connected?

        PS/2

        By not working, I mean to say that it won't accept key strokes. There are no lights on, on the keyboard. For instance, if I push caps button, nothing. There are no lights, no key strokes accepted. It won't backspace, nothing.

          Sounds like one of:

          1. PS/2 port doesn't work or doesn't behave properly
          2. PS/2 connection is bad (say, broken pin in the slot)
          3. It is an older computer, and the PS/2 port must not be connected while the computer is on.

          possibly? Do make sure you turn your computer off before attaching a PS/2 port device, that on older computers can cause a big problem.

            This is all the relatively new pc that I ordered the parts and had put together.
            So...one way out of it would be to buy a USB keyboard?

                Yes, USB keyboard is the superior solution. I'm surprised your 'relatively new' computer did not come with one - my relatively new work computer doesn't even have PS/2 ports.

                  If you'll remember, I bought the individual components. A keyboard wasn't one of them.

                    You're an old man. You know that 'remember' is a hard thing to do.

                    I do suggest a USB keyboard (and mouse), they're far superior. Then you could get a wireless one. The possibilities abound...

                          hehehe. I'm back.
                          Now, I don't want wireless. I have a wireless mouse that I disconnected. The battery eating hog.

                            That's why you get one with a rechargeable battery (Also, make sure your receiver is not too far away or blocked by large electronics, e.g. a computer, from the mouse - that makes it eat batteries like crazy).

                              It was about 7 1/2 inches away. Estimate.
