PS2 Extension Cable Problems
any help on this really appreciated.
i want to put my pc's base unit in another room (because of the noise) to that of my montior/keyboard & mouse. i've bought all the relevant extension cables to achieve this and everything works except the PS2 extension cables (15m). both mouse and keyboard are dead (no lights, no response).
however, these cables work on another PC, so they do work.
i've tried a couple of branded cables (lindy, belkin) and both have the same response. my pc will not work with ps2 extension cables. it's so frustrating.
i thought it might be a power thing (since the cables are 15m). i've unplugged a couple of the case fans to reduce power consumption, but still the same results.
pc spec: pentium 4 3.2Ghz, 1Gb Ram, 160Gb Seagate Barracuda, 400W PSU, 9800 pro ATI, Logitech keyboard, Microsoft Mouse (USB with PS2 adapter).
getting very stressed out by this and any suggestions would be gratefully appreciated.
