Solved Enabling USB Legacy and possible problems?

December 10, 2011 at 10:20:09
Specs: Windows XP
I have old computer.
I threw out PS2 keyboard and mouse.
And then I bought USB keyboard and mouse.
No need to tell, that I did not know about USB legacy and that I did not know, that adapters do not work on new keyboards and mouses.
Now, after more than month, I finally found PS2 keyboard and mouse in one shop and bought again PS2 equipment.

Now I have question, if my computer is more than 7 years old and I will enable USB Legacy- will my PS2 keyboard and mouse work and can my PC have some other problems with enabling USB Legacy?

Thank you.

I think the main reason for USB legacy is to enable a USB keyboard (and maybe the mouse) during the posting process so you can access bios setup with it.

If you have a PS/2 keyboard and mouse you may not need the USB legacy but if you have it enabled it shouldn't interfere with the operation of the PS/2 stuff.

Thank you.
I think the same, but I asked question, to be sure, that USB legacy enabling will not cause problems.
