    [​IMG] My mobo (ASUS P3V4X) refuses to detect the PS2 keyboard. I tried it with 3 different keyboards, with/without mouse... nothing helped. Finaly an USB keyboard gave me the chance to set the BIOS to default, but that also didn't solve the problem, because this system should run W98 which isn't really glad to work without PS2 keyb. Any suggestions?

    If the keyboard just suddenly stopped working, it's probably not because of the BIOS. Bring your computer to where you bought it, and have them fix it.

    What most likely happened was that your ps/2 connector broke. TO see if that happened use a ps/2 to a serial or usb connector and plug your keyboard into the motherboard that way. If it will not find the keyboard when pluggend into the serial or usb port, you better take the computer back. But if does find the keyboard, you know the ps/2 slot is fired.
