MotherBoard DB85FL recognizes USB adapters for Keyboard PS2? (PS2 to USB)

Hello everyone!

 

 

I am connecting a PS/2 keyboard into a USB adapter, but the system and the BIOS does not recognize the keyboard. (I tried two different models of keyboards, no work).

Could tell me if the DB85FL motherboard recognizes this procedure?

follows some attached pictures to help explain:

These PS/2 to USB dongles are notoriously unreliable. I have come across quite a few over the years that similarly didn't work. All I can suggest is that you purchase a better quality one. I have a number that I use that support both mouse & keyboard and they work great. They are from HP, Airlink and (mostly) IOData.

Hope this helps,

Hi Ejbussarello,

 

 

PS/2 peripherals are old now; the compatibility with the newer operating systems and hardware is difficult. I suggest you Scott's recommendation.

 

 

As a workaround, verify in the BIOS if Legacy Boot and USB legacy are active.
