We May be facing and incompatibility problem between the old keyboard and the PS2 ports on the boards. Both boards have new BIOS on the 2009 and 2008 respectively, so we can try to load the latest BIOS and hopefully it will fix the issue. You can get the latest BIOS fom the following link:
Intel® Desktop Board D975XBX2:
Intel® Desktop Board DP965LT:
Please bear in mind that this product is no longer under support. Intel provides information on your particular product at the following link :
As I stated above, I have already flashed the latest (published 2-3 years ago) BIOS your website offered, but they didn't solve my problem, period.
Is fixing some unpleasant BIOS glitches really that difficult, I mean, for so many professional techs, engineers and programmers at Intel?
Then, I shall say Intel have really, really disappointed me. I know Intel is a world-famous American brand, and I trusted the quality of U.S. products, so I bought your product. You admitted that there may be imperfections, but you refuse to make amends, just because you considered my boards obsolete; this is an irresponsible attitude. IBM would publish BIOS updates 10 years after the release of a certain computer model, and even ASUS or GIGABYTE will do something if customers tell them there is a problem. What about Intel?
BTW, not only my "obsolete" motherboards encounters problems with certain old keyboards, newer models of intel MOBOs are also affected as well. Have a look at this: http://communities.intel.com/message/51308#51308 or http://communities.intel.com/message/117275#117275. Apparently, this incompatible problem is very typical and affect lots of models & users, and if you can take some time to investigate & eliminate the problem once and for all, users will be happy and Intel can earn respect.
I do understand your concern and I apologies that you feel that way. Intel* do the best to make the boards compatible with all the peripheral devices available on the market, but with mature products (keyboard )we may face this kind of situation, even though I would suggest to get the latest drivers as another option, but in this particular case Intel announced the end-of-interactive support (EOIS) for the D975XBX2 and DP965TL in December 20, 2009,but the information for those products still available via website.
