I have just bought a new computer but am using my existing keyboard/mouse with it. The keyboard has been working 100% with my previous PC. The keyboard is a PS/2 keyboard.
Sometimes, with the new PC, the keyboard is not recognised by windows. I boot up and then try to use the keyboard in Chrome or something and nothing happens. The power light (num lock) is on. Hitting Caps Lock or F.Lock also does nothing (lights do not come on).
I checked Device Manager and there is no mention of a Keyboard in the list.
However if I reboot the PC, without changing any settings, the keyboard comes back and everything is good. Keyboard works as expected and is listed in Device Manager.
Does anyone have any suggestions why this might be happening? And any suggestions to fix?
