I have Windows 8 standard on a new custom desktop PC.
I connected a Microsoft Basic Keyboard 1.0A which has a PS/2 plug and the keyboard worked fine.
I then disconnected the keyboard and connected a Microsoft Wireless keyboard 3000 V2.0 via the supplied USB dongle.
I turned off the PC, took out the wireless USB dongle and connected the PS/2 keyboard.
The num lock led lights up on the keyboard, but the pressing the keys has no effect. Weirdly, when the PS/2 plug is connected to the PC, the PC turns on.
When I look at human devices on the control panel no keyboard is displayed.
I'm now using a USB keyboard to type this and it is working fine, but I would like to be able to use my PS/2 Microsoft keyboard with Windows 8.
Has anyone else experiencing the same thing, or able to reproduce this?
