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.

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 7 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 7 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 7 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.

How do I request the refund?
Expert:  Todd G replied 7 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 7 years ago.
thank you

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

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