"USB Device Not Recognized" Error Message

    I recently bought a HP Pavilion DV8000 laptop with Windows XP Home
    Edition installed. The DV8000 doesn't come with a PS2 port so I used
    the PS2 to USB converter in order to hook up an external keyboard
    (Emachine 9021 Mutimedia) then I receive an "USB Device Not
    Recognized" error. I was able to hook the EMachine Keyboard up to my
    mom's older Gateway Desktop via both the PS2 connection and the USB
    (using the adapter) and it worked fine both times just not on my
    laptop.

    Does anyone have any ideas on how to get this keyboard to work with
    this laptop? I find the "Cut, Paste & Copy" keys invaluable and after
    looking at the different keyboards out there that have these options I
    found that the EMachine key boards suited me best.

    Did you check that maybe there are drivers that have to load in order
    for that keyboard to work ? Did you refresh the list in device mgr ?
    Does it show up in there ?
