I am running Hardy on an older Toshiba Satellite. I am trying to get an external keyboard to work on it. I have a USB adapter for an HP keyboard. My laptop wont even recognize that I have the keyboard plugged in. The main reason I want an external keyboard is to use the number pad on it. If anyone has any advice I would really appreciate it.

I have also installed KeyTouch hoping that would work. Is there anything that I am missing?

That didnt really answer my question that I understood.

I have the keyboard connected using a usb/ps2 connector. I dont want to try restarting with the external keyboard connected. The last time I did that I had a major system crash.
