I have an HP ze5170 notebook computer that I’d like to use an external keyboard for. I got a standard $15 keyboard and plugged it into the PS/2 port. All was good for a few minutes, then the keys stopped registering, and it didn’t work at all. Unplugging and plugging back in and rebooting had the same effect.
It worked for just a few minutes, but the shift keys didn’t work nor did the number pad. I’m not sure if I need to install a driver for it or what. Is there a way to disable the built-in keyboard?
