Not necessarily. Could be. Sorry to be vague, but it could be a bent pin in the connector, or some dust or could be a broken contact point somewhere where it connects to board.

thanks for reply, the slot still powers the keyboard just not seeing it so i would think that it wouldnt lead to other bad things happening.

It's not really an indication of the motherboard going bad. I've had onboard sound die on a board, and it functioned fine for years and years after that using a discrete sound card. I also had the ethernet adapter die on another board, and nothing bad happened to it in the months after that.

The PS/2 plug unlike a USB is NOT plug and play. You cannot hotswap your PS/2 plug while your machine is running. In doing so, you will get errors like what you are describing.

You need to reboot before and after you add or remove any device that is plugged into a PS/2 port.

I know this sounds stupid, but, is your PS/2 port enabled in BIOS?

After a BIOS update, some settings may have changed.
