    I bought a new Mother Board that does not have PS2 port for keyboard mouse.
    So i use this adapter to connect my PS2 Keyboard & mouse.

    Both are working fine normally. But when i'm playing game, for example accelerating a car and when i pressed any other button, just for moving it left & right it decelerated. Same is the case with any shooting game. Suppose i hit 'W' key to move man forward, then i pressed 'A' without releasing 'W' it stop right there, and i need a released pressed again to move it forward.

    Same is the case when checked with laptop too. Whereas, laptop keypad is working fine.

    I'm sure this adapter is not working with games. I dont want to buy a usb keyboard because i already have two more spares of electronic PS2 keyboard, it'll get three if i buy.

    So i was hoping if i could convert this to USB.
    I tried usb to ps2 convert diagram and doesn't work.
    I open the keyboard & connect the wire direct to it as shown here, still not work :mad: .....i connected correctly, no confusion!

    Get a single PS2 Keyboard to USB type adapter, and a single PS2 Mouse connector, that would work better, apparently the one you are using does not support multikey press, it could be because it has to buffer both PS2 device inputs, so if they were separate, it MAY work better...

    Most newer PS2 keyboards can handle being switched from PS2 to USB because the functionality is built into the keyboard controller, yours may not have that functionality built into it, so it can not communicate directly to a USB host without a proper PS2 to USB connector.....

    Or just spend a few dollars and get with the times :D, and just use those PS2 keyboards as doorstops, or paper weights :rolleyes:

    That's why I am saying your current adapter does not support multiple keys being pressed at one time, so you need to try a different adapter preferably a single PS2 to USB.
