Ps2 keyboard and mouse don't work. usb works fine


Answers :

Assuming you have checked in setup that the PS2 is turned on the other option is to re-flash the bios .
\015\012At some time someone switched the mouse and keyboard and started up the computer this can cause you to need to re-flash the bios most likely the keyboard chip needs to be replaced sorry to bring bad news .
\015\012Dell seems to have this problem yet the USB works is good where most modern keyboards and mouse are USB.
\015\012Purple is Keyboard if not color coded the closest to the outer side of case is the keyboard.
\015\012Good luck hope this helps you
\015\012PS. You may try setting the jumper pins to default the main board back to factory defaults then remove the jumper pin and leave off for first boot .When doing this be aware not to have the power cables connected to the server remove all power cords and the monitor . Prior to doing the first power up plug in the PS2 keyboard only then the monitor. Cross you fingers If you lucky your PS2 port’s will be working again if so shut down re install the jumper pin install the PS2 mouse.
