  1. PS/2 Keyboard Only Can Press 6 Keys


    I got a cheap PS/2 Keyboard from Amazon.


    https://www.amazon.ca/gp/aw/d/B0075W8C8S?psc=1&ref=ppx_pop_mob_b_asin_title


    It works fine but I can only press a maximum of 6 keys despite it being a PS/2 Keyboard. When the 6 keys are pressed I get a low beep sound coming from the speakers.


    The PS/2 port on my motherboard is the split type.


    Is N-Key Roll Over (NKRO) only for mechanical PS/2 keyboards? Is that feature available to membrane PS/2 keyboards?

    :)

    PS/2 keyboard not working

    Question:- does a laptop keyboard use PS/2 interface or other?

    My problem:- PS/2 desktop keyboard has stopped working; reseated PS/2 connection - same problem. The computer knows when keys are pressed because the speakers issue a click BUT characters aren't forthcoming.

    WORKAROUND

    Start the virtual keyboard and hey-presto - the physical keyboard springs into life (you can tell because the caps-lock light suddenly starts working.)

    Really weird. The PS/2 mouse is fine. To cut our losses I'll try a USB keyboard tomorrow.
