PS/2 keyboard stopped working

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So recently for no apparent reason my Filco Majestouch-2 stopped working. For a couple of days I've had some problems with it, like it would stop responding for a while then start working normally, until upon a reboot it just failed to work anymore.

I suspected the keyboard first, however after switching it to USB it works ok. When I connect it to PS/2 the lights go on for a while, but then it doesn't respond nor can I turn on Caps Lock or Num Lock etc.

Does it sound like the motherboard issue then? Anything else I should check? On one hand I'm not sure it's worth it to RMA the motherboard because of the problem like this, especially that I have a lot of work at the moment and no time to be left without a PC. On the other hand I don't want to have my mech keyboard connected to USB port like a common peasant.

I am going to assume that the PS/2 connector is an adapter.

I not a specialist in this field but It always seem like the PS/2 is never firmly held in place and can be bent easily. Check for any bent pins or if the connection in bent on the motherboard.

What's wrong with a USB connection? You get 6kro on a filco which is more than enough for anything you'll ever need to do, unless you just like holding down 20 keys at a time for fun.
