Problem with keyboard - It works alternativly
Posted on 1998-11-13
I bought a new computer, but I stayed with my old keyboard. The keyboard connection (On my old keyboard) is this big round thing. The new computer only had small (like PS-Mouse) connections. SO I bought a small adapter.
So far, okay. Now the weird part: When I boot the computer, the keyboard works. Then, when I next boot it (Not after an error, or anything. Just on the next boot) The keyboard simply doesn't work at all. Sometimes, it also beeps. But I DON'T get error messages, it simply won't work.
THen on the next boot, it is all okay again. and the next boot? yes. It doesn't work. Strange or what? What can it mean? I see two arrows on the small adaptor I bought. (Like it's bi-directional or something). Maybe this is not a suitable one?
any suggestions? I guess If I buy a new keyboard it will work, and it's only around 20$, but I like the feel of my keyboard...
