Is the PS/2 keyboard/mouse different from USB?

Post by JonnyJobin » Tue Sep 17, 2019 1:03 pm

I've had a hackintosh for about 10 years now and for some reason the USB keyboard has been giving me trouble. I thought it was the MB, so I installed Windows 7 for the same MB that was running macOS. The USB mouse is giving me trouble (cutting in and out).

Someone suggested to use the other USB set (the board has 2 USB banks), and also suggested that I try the PS/2 ports for the mouse/keyboard.

Q. Does the PS/2 ports work on a different channel than the USB does so that if my USB doesn't work under macOS, then maybe the PS/2 will?

Is there any USB 3/3.1 PCIe cards that work with macOS?
