    Older keyboard not recognized at all


    I have an older keyboard which works well in Windows 7 but in Windows 8 it is not recognized at all. It is not even listed in the devices manager.

    I downloaded and installed the last chipset drivers from the manufacturer of the laptop (Samsung) but it didn't help.

    I had a liquid spill over my laptop keyboard and it stopped working for one day. Now it works again after drying, but I'd like to have this older external keyboard working just in case.

    Any idea?

    PS2 or USB? If PS2, check for BIOS option to turn PS2 on.
