Windows 7: Keyboard PS/2 port randomly stops working

Keyboard PS/2 port randomly stops working

The title really says it all. Sometimes if I plug in a keyboard, it will work for a while and then just stop. I've checked the keyboards in other comps and they work fine. My mobo is an ECS Black P45T-AD3. The rest of my specs are filled in below. Any ideas?

Well, no rush on this as I have a wireless keyboard that is working for now...plus, there is always the on-screen keyboard. It's just really bugging me that I can't figure out why the PS/2 port would short out like that...

It happened for the second time a couple of days ago. I was actually preparing to install some windows updates, but hadn't actually installed them yet. I wanna believe that it's the PS/2 port, but thinking back, I'm pretty sure that this happened once with a usb keyboard since I built this rig.

I also have a problem with my keyboard and mouse, both ps2 devices. Mouse is very glitchy when in windows and games alike, and stops responding altogether along with my keyboard.

Any Help?

Keyboard randomly stops working.
Hi thelastbonbona, It may not be an issue with the keyboard at all. You may try using a good-known keyboard with the system, if available; will help you to isolate the keyboard as the possible root cause. Alternatively, you may use this keyboard with another system to see if the issue...
