My daughters computer has thrown out two keyboards in just one week. PS2 connection on a VIA266 mobo running WINXP PRO. The right hand side of the keyboard seems affected. Keys UIOPJKL_+{:@~[]+-09632 Do not work. This is exactly the same on both.When I plug mine into her system,same problem. Plug hers into mine, does not work??. Got me foxed.Uninstalled and reinstalled keyboard several times. What little hair I have left is fast disappearing.Any of you good people have any ideas? TIA.

Only thing I can think of is a short on one of the pin holes on the PS2 socket. Your keyboard will not work on your daughters PC, but has not been left connected long enough to be damaged.

That would explain why yours still works when connected back to your PC, but daughters keyboard will not work on either. j.
