    I refurb PCs all the time, and almost all the PCs I refurb, have got USB ports.

    Well anyway, I have this one PC on my desk at the moment, it has a USB port, but for some reason, doesn't properly support 'Legacy USB Keyboards'. This means that when I try and install Windows on this machine, the setup can't detect the keyboard.

    Anyway, its a total oddball, so instead of my lovely black keyboard that I normally use for refurbing, I've had to dig out a PS/2 keyboard. This is the cleanest (out of my 'box of horrible keyboards) one I could find:

    I'm glad I'm only installing Windows on it, I've sprayed it with disinfectant, but still...

    Its amazing how keyboards get like this, I have a box of about 30 which are far worse than that one.

    Makes you wonder what the previous owner of these keyboards did with them :eek:

    I was thinking more about some of the ones I didn't picture. Someone must have been lonely with high-speed internet if you catch my drift :eek:

    Well, if he was doing the internet nasty, and he's probably right-handed, then the left side of the keyboard (ASDF) should be cleaner. :p

    look on the keyboard, it looks like he didnt press the K and L buttons much, those two buttons look like they are the only clean buttons on the whole keyboard.
