    Hi there

    The best way of using PS/2 connections is to use one of those PS2 double (mouse + keyboard) connectors that plug in to a USB port. I still use a PS/2 keyboard that way a) because the keys have a much better feel on the old keyboard than the newer one's and b) it's a WHITE keyboard with black letters -- all the new keyboards I see are invariably BLACK one's with White letters !!!!.

    The USB device will allow 100% plug 'n play.

    Yeah.. But these ps2 devices worked earlier with Windows 8 on a ps2 port and I'm still wondering why now it shows this strange behavior..

    Someone Please Help. This Is The Closest Thing I Could Find About USB! I Have A Toshiba Windows 8.1 i5 Core Satellite S-50A That Was A Gift. It Has Advanced Gaming Graphics. When I Got It I Tried Plugging My Mouse And Phone Into The Left Hand USB Outlet But Nothing Would Work. It Started Working But Not Fully I Can Plug My iPhone Into It Because It Goes Charge Uncharge Charge Uncharge Forever Rapidly! Would This Be Caused By A Short? And If So What Can I Do To Fix It? Send It Back To Toshiba? It Still Has Warranty I Think. Email Me @

    Those are probably USB 3 ports, check if driver for them is installed properly.
