    I'm using a microstar 6312 mobo, which has a place to solder in ps/2 ports, that's what I did, well they don't work, do I need a driver or did I not solder it good enough? I'm lost.:confused:

    There are probably other components on the board that are needed to make them work. If not and you actually got lucky enough to have everything on the board you need, then you have to go into the bios and enable ps/2 support.

    Always got me looking to buy, I need to say that in my posts, I was homeless a couple months ago, now just trying to find work, no luck, I'm happily lucky enough to still have some of my things. Thanks to a good friend of mine.
    Thank you for the info, that is the cheapest alternative I have seen so far.
    I'll check the bios.
    That is if I can get the monitor to turn on. Why would it not turn on, every so often, it will turn on then turn back off?
    UGH
