Recently I connected a ps/2 keyboard to my laptop through ps/2 to usb connector.

All worked fine until I tried to play game(GTA 4).

So,basically when I pressed Up key(accelerated my car) + left key(took left) simultaneously,only left key was recognized..So,my car lost acceleration but it was still moving left

So,why does my ps/2-usb connector doesn't work for simultaneous input? Is there any solution to this problem?

this is not certainly the problem with the PS/2 to USB connector. Try to changing the keyboard settings to default in the game and then check. Try using the "A" key for the left and then check.
