Try uninstalling the drivers, then reinstall them.

You mean PS2?

Try it in a different PC - if it does the same its the keyboard.

Well i know that power cut outs can hurt your PC in many different ways.

When it comes to your Keyboard, becuase its PS2 i would try it on another PC (first test). If it does the same its the Keyboard.

If it doesnt do the same- if your luckly to have another PS2 keyboard, try that one. Same Problem?

Now i would start to worry alittle bit.

You can go into your BIOS and check if your PS2 is enabled.
If its enabled- You can by a connection at will convert your PS2 into USB, this will then test if its your PS2 connection on your PC or if its your Keyboard.

Also check in Device managment to see if your Keyboard drivers are loaded.
