Hello, I have an old HCL Beanstalk Slim PC and am using the keyboard that came with it. It has an old purple PS2 port. However, my CPU's port failed and I was forced to use a USB to PS2 connector, but that does not allow multi-key press while gaming. Any solution? It's very irritating and I can't play games.

✔ Best Answer
A USB-to PS/2 adapter is intended for a mouse only. They don't work properly when used for a keyboard. You'll have to get the PS/2 port fixed so you can use your PS/2 keyboard again.
