Default Keyboard

I have the following system

ABIT IC7-G motherboard
Windows XP
Intel Northwood P4 3.0 GHz
Dell Keyboard with usb port

When I hook my keyboard up to the usb port in the back of the motherboard it works fine, however when I try and hook the keyboard to the purple pin connector (not sure what it is called, PS2 maybe) it won't work. I am using a usb to pin adapter. I have the mouse ran with an adapter to the mouse pin next to the keyboard pin and it works fine. The keyboard won't even work during the bios start-up. Does anyone know how to fix this? I only have four usb ports and need an extra one, that is why I would like to hook the keyboard to the other connector. Thanks

Default Re: Keyboard

when you hooked the keyboard to the adapter did you restart the computer? Because i have found that the keyboard won't be detected until restarted if using a PS2 connector. USB is fine to plug in and go but i guess since PS2 is older technology it needs to load some how on startup before it will work.
