Hardware / Re: USB to PS/2 mouse or keyboard converter - active or true
« Last post by MIRKOSOFT on June 21, 2018, 05:04:39 PM »
I must to correct both last replies.

Of course Commodore 64 has and never had PS/2 connector even keyboard.

Commodore 64 DTV (Direct-To-TV) was distributed between 2003-2005 as joystick with extra buttons only.
This enhanced version is basically FPGA - but not FPGA-64 - this FPGA is created only C64 by original copy.
FPGA inside DTV joystick  is possible to mod - Jeri Ellsworth was thinking about when she designed it.
Left there connections for 2 joysticks, User Port, IEC serial and PS/2 keyboard onboard.
I modded it how it was possible and have all except User Port - so I added there standard PS/2 keyboard connector - but DTV FPGA board accepts not USB to PS/2 standard adapter.

Compaq 486 has also available PS/2 connectors - one for keyboard and one for mouse. Problem is the same.

I know that PS/2 is not hot-plug interface - but don't understand why these two computers accepting not standard USB to PS/2 adapters.
So, I need real conversion - it means also protocol and controller - so now it is more clear.
Has anybody any idea what to do?

Thank you for all.

Set BIOS to IDE mode...wipe HDD and do a clean install...
For some reason BIOS isn't recognising changes made which is 1 of 2 things...not pressing F10 to "save changes and exit"...or CMOS battery may be goin flat.

with new ones being so cheap, why risk using a known unreliable device with bad blocks which has already caused grief at least once?

check your security software, like your AV program, browser adblocker or add-ons in general, modified HOSTS file etc.in other words, things that you would have that your neighbour wouldn't.things like adblockers can be disabled, AV software can can temporarily turned off.
other avenues; try a different browser on your PC, reboot your modem.

Hardware / Computer won't start on SATA mode IDE or AHCI
« Last post by nimrodookie on June 21, 2018, 12:36:49 PM »
I had a computer with windows 8.1 installed but the HDD died. So I bought a new one and installed windows 8.1 with SATA mode IDE. Everything was fine untill I shut it down. When I tired to open it said that there were no bootable device. I tried everything and finally when I changed SATA mode to AHCI it saw the HDD but could not start Windows, so I changed it back to IDE and it started Widows as if nothing had happened.
Whenever I shut down the computer and try to start it, the same thing happens, and I do all these steps again.

I also tried to install windows 8.1 on AHCI mode, but the same thing happened again. But this time I had to switch to IDE and then AHCI again.

Also, when I pick restart option, not shut down, there is no problem. It restarts just fine.

Do you have any idea why this is happening or how can I fix this?

Okay so, for anyone who's having the same problem (even if i think that i'm the only one), you can download chipeasy to find your chip model, then download the factory soft to flash your chip, you just have to erase the firmware and the isp and then install the factory ones, it did solve my problem.

Okay so, I found that link which is working with my controller, I erased everything (flash & isp) and i'm now trying to reflow it, I dunno if this is gonna work cause I have a lot of badblocks (which are being erased too) and it's taking a lot of time and heating. Does anyone know if I'm doing the right things ?
