Using 2 keyboards, The built in and a USB also
Posted on 2004-09-05
I am trying to use a second keyboard for input. Ultimately, I would like to be able to use one keyboard (the builtin) for everything and the secondary for just some programs (that I am writing).
But right now, I can't get the second keybard to be recognized at all. This keyboard works 100% great on my desk top Gateway. But when I connect it to either the PS/2 or USB port, the lights flash on the keyboard showing it is getting power but windows xp reports it as an unknown device.
It is a Microsoft urgo keyboard that connects via the USB port or PS/2 via an adapter.
My notebook is the Gateway 450ROG.
The device is detected but windows pops up with the message that the USB device is not recognized. When in the PS/2 port I get nothing (may need a special adapter because the PS/2 port on notebook is for both the mouse & keyboard, not one for each)
It is super important to get this working. Any ideas?
