    Actually, the PS2 port on the back of laptops is for either mouse or keyboard (or if you get an adapter, both).

    Just a couple things to try. Make sure you've got the keyboard plugged in before you turn on the laptop. When the laptop boots, watch the lights on the keyboard to see if they flash or light up. If not, then test the keyboard on another PC (in the same way) and see if it works then. This way you'll figure out what the actual problem is.

    PS2 is simply the type of connector it uses. It's a small round one, as rugbydude said.

    Did you try it in another PC as well?
