Customer Question

I have a new Systemax PC with two PS2 ports. I installed a new video card (ATI Radeon 4550) and now the ports are disabled.

Can you tell me the model number of your computer?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

SYX-G31M3-LV2

Pentium Dual Core CPU E5200 2.50 Ghz 2.52 Ghz

4 Gigabyte RAM

Vista Home Premium 64 bit

Expert:  Todd G replied 5 years ago.
You need to enable the ps-2 ports in the BIOS. Click on 'F1' or 'Del' when you first turn on the computer. Look through the BIOS to enable the ps-2 ports.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

I will try it,

Also, I have noticed that IE is not the default browser and cannot seem to make it so

Also, on shutdown I have to shut down a error message that indicate a problem with an exception at a stated address.

FYI in case it is related to the issue noted here, I am willing to pay more if we can fix all three issues.

I am going to close and try the bios fix.

 

Customer: replied 5 years ago.

I tried it (del) and it took me to the menu where I went into advanced bios. I looked around and could not find anything about ps2 or serial ports.

I will try it again.

Customer: replied 5 years ago.

Tried it again and found

com port 1 (3F8/IRQ4)

com port 2 (2F8/IRQ3)

 

 

I ran some registry cleaners cccleaner, eusing, and another - I do not get the error message and have to close the program manually (exception at address...).

 

I have note that my NAS drives do not automatically map and I have to "open" them to get the drives to show in computer.

 

 

Again willing to pay more to fix all these issues.

 

It is late (11:45) here and I am pretty tired. Will take this up again tomorrow.

The ps2 ports that you spoke of that are not working, how are you using a mouse or keyboard, USB? If so, what would you be using the ps-2 ports for?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

I want to use an old AT keyboard that uses a ps2 connection.

I called Systemax and they resolved the issue for me.

Thanks

How do I request the refund?
Expert:  Todd G replied 5 years ago.
Because you never clicked on 'Accept' the $14 was never charged.

Hope that we can help in the future. I'm glad you were able to get it resolved.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
thank you
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

Actually the $14 dollars was charged to my PayPal account on Sept. 8.

Would you kindly provide a refund as I never "Accepted."

thanks

  • Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill Bill M. Schenectady, New York
