How to install external PS/2 keyboard?

Omnibook 3000, Windows XP.
I plugged the keyboard to PS/2 port labeled with keyboard and mouse icons.
After power on Num, Caps, and Scroll Locks indicators flashed but keyboard doesn't work. Why?

I thinking about new USB keyboard...

Do you have most recent BIOS ? There seems to be a BIOS update (1.01) fixing some issues with OB3000 PS/2 port available on HP site...

Thank you Denis!

BIOS is 30k101en.exe (English BIOS 1.01 and Keyboard BIOS)

Maybe older 30b101en.exe will help me?
