Yes i know that :D

Do you have USB? If you do,try out a USB Keyboard and mouse and see if it has the same problem.

If you dont have USB You may want to buy a USB Controller Card.

Well if you have a plug on the back of your PC Which looks like this:



Then all you need to buy is a USB Keyboard and mouse which you can get online or a local computer store then you simply plug them in!


If you dont have any of those plugs,you should get a USB Controller card.

A USB Controller Card looks like this,



Now you can buy these off the internet or from a Local Computer store.Now you should open your computers case and check if you have any PCI Slots empty,they look like this:



Once you purchase one,you simply install the card as shown in the manual,and then install the correct software,and then you can use a USB Keyboard and mouse Because if your PS/2 Port is bad,there is no real way of fixing it.
