Hi, i registered in this forum because some anon at /g/ told me you could help.I connected my keyboard to my pc in ps/2 port when it was off, and some american megatrends thing appeared saying in the end "NO keyboard detected".How do i make it detect the keyboard?
Welcome to Geekhack!Probably a power thing. Happens ALL the time. Crappy PS/2 port implementation these days. Plug it into USB.We are quite famous at /b/ too.
I assume you plugged it into the right PS2 port, so I'll leave that out.Anyway.. is the Steelseries 6gv2 actually PS2 compatible? If the controller does not support PS2 you will not be able to use it over PS2. Even the expensive Realforce keyboards actually do not work over PS2 since their controller only supports the USB protocol. Filco is different, these work on both protocols.I did a quick search and could not find any info on PS2 compatibility or not. Does the box claim full nkey over ps2?
The 6Gv2 is built with a USB as standard, but we also included a USB to PS/2 adapter in the box. The choice is yours.We absolutely recommend using the PS/2 connector when possible. First,it will give you total freedom with no limit to the amount of simultaneous key presses. And, equally as important, using the PS/2 may just improve your overall gaming experience. The reason is that when you use a USB keyboard your computer is actually using CPU time polling your keyboard. The higher the polling rate the more CPU time is used to perform the polling. And because of the built-in debounce rate found on any quality keyboard, any polling rate above 200Hz is simply a waste of CPU time and really just a result of pointless marketing hype. Unlike USB keyboards a PS/2 keyboard isn’t polled at all. The keyboard simply sends a signal to the computer as key presses are made, which causes a hardware interrupt, forcing the CPU to register the signal.
The board supports it but doesn't work with a ps/2 adapter. You'll need to find a driver or software solution to get nkro.
