Hello

I got a new system that only excepts USB Mice and Keyboards and I want to use my old Microsoft Wireless keyboard and mouse but one of the cables on my receiver is PS2 and the other is USB. The PS2 cable is for the keyboard and the USB is for the mouse

I connected one of those Green PS2 to USB adapters to it and connected it...MOUSE works great...but the keyboard wont work.


Any help or ideas ?

hi, welcome to geekstogo,
if you know the make of the product, maybe you can go to the maker's site and see if these are new drivers for it

thanks, is there a maker's name on the keyboard, 0r on the back even the model type I am hoping that there are vista drivers at the site because you are not the only one to have upgraded from XP only to find that the hardware is as yet unsupported but that is not MS's fault
