!

Then the PS/2 can be converted to USB with a converter. The PS/2 to USB adapter you have, may be just an adapter, instead of an active converter, hence the reason why it's not working. Just contributing to this with my (limited) experience. I have a couple of those same PS/2 to USB adapters, they a...

Re: New to Deskthority, need help

Uh, the solution (pun intended) for this does not come in a spray can. edit: I'm serious about this, you probably don't want any spray cleaner getting inside the switches, and certainly not the crud that gets washed off the PC board along with the cleaner. The right way is to unsolder the switches,...

Re: New to Deskthority, need help

Hi Polecat,

True, it's pretty dirty. I was planning to do it after I got the keyboard working. But it may be the reason why it's not working. Won’t hurt to give it a clean, eh? I guess it’s time to whip these out!

Cheers!

Re: New to Deskthority, need help

Hi ifohancroft, It might be an idea to get another converter. The problem is getting one here in Mexico, it's a bit of a hassle, not to mention expensive. At $40 US ($800 pesos) it seems more trouble than the keyboard's worth (I bougth it for 80 pesos by the way). Just to give you an idea. 2 weeks a...

Re: New to Deskthority, need help

Sorry guys for the long wait, I have been very busy with other stuff. With regards to the 80206/8088 switch. As you know it was in "8088". I switched it to "80206" and... it sort of responded. I had notepad open and in it I got "111111..." but when I clicked backspace, and it actually deleted the 1'...

Re: New to Deskthority, need help

Thanks for that! The currect setting is "8088". I'm sure the other setting (80206) gave me no response whatsoever. I'll check it again tho and let you a'll know.

Re: New to Deskthority, need help

Hi Hausen, Great idea! The switch reads, "80206/8088". I'm not sure which one of these numbers represents AT or XT but I've tried both. "8088" produces those weird repetive signals I've mentioned before, however, whenever I click caps lock, num lock, and screen lock the respective LEDs light up on t...

Re: New to Deskthority, need help

That's what I thought too! But sometimes it registers other characters from the start. And besides, the electronics expert told me all the switches work fine as well capacitors and resistors and what have you. Thanks a lot anyway!

Re: New to Deskthority, need help

Thanks for your advice!

Sounds like we would have to find another option, if there is one.

Hello everybody, I'm not sure if this is the rigth place to ask, please feel free to tell me so. I'm new to Deskthority. I have always been a fan of old keyboards, but where I live there is not much of a chance to see one. Yet a few years ago, I was passing over an old bazaar store when I noticed a ...
