Keyboard (ps2) not recognised (usb laptop)

I have a Gateway MX6635B laptop which only has USB ports. I picked up a PS2 microsoft internet k/board and a PS2-USB adaptor but i get a malfunction error and the USB device is not recognised. Has anyone come across this before and what did they do? thanks.

I'm not sure about keyboards - but with PS/2 mice to work via a PS/2 to USB adapter, they have to be designed to do so - not just any old PS/2 mouse will work.

I suspect keyboards may be the same.
