Connecting the PS2 mouse or keyboard to the laptop is easy when you have the PS2 to USB converter. Just insert the USB connection into your laptop and then insert the PS2 mouse or keyboard cord into converter. Turn on your laptop (it can be on before you insert the USB cable also) and wait for it to recognize the new hardware.
Once the laptop recognizes the PS2 to USB converter you can use the PS2 mouse or keyboard immediately. The keyboard will light up and you’ll see your cursor moving on screen within seconds of connecting it to the laptop.
