Need help with your keyboard??

Question

Recently my PS/2 keyboard started to fail.It started to not display characters that I entered,etc. so I swapped it with another keyboard,with the same result.I removed the keyboard in the device manager and also physically removed the keyboard and then rebooted.Even though there was no keyboard plugged into either port,on restart the machine still said it found new hardware and that it was installing the correct drivers.I am now using a USB keyboard and everything is fine so far,but i would like to correct the problem with the PS/2 keyboard if possible.Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.Thank you.

THE PROBLEM IS PROBABLY WITH THE PS/2 PORT FOR YOUR KEYBOARD THE BEST BET IS STAYING WITH THE USB KEYBOARD UNLESS YOU ARE WILLING TO REPLACE THE PS/2 PORT INSIDE YOUR PC.
