    keyboards don't have the PS4 PS button that needs to be pressed before anything else can be used when you turn on a PS4

    i.e. nothing will work on a PS4 until the PS button is pressed with something that is synced to it, so that would still not rule out the pad being defect, this even happens with a PS2 pad hooked up via a USB converter it still will ask for the PS button to be pressed

    That's odd. I don't think PS3 is like that, when I got my Hori pad (which is wired) I turned my PS3 on at the console and it just works.
    You don't have to press PS button to use it like you do with a wireless pad.

    In fact the PS button on that controller can't even turn on the PS3, but it can shut it down and do all the other things the button normally does.
    Spoiler warning:

    Hi again dudes,

    Finally, my not-so-cheap PS4 is back home: I took it to a computer store and they just can't make it work (BTW, I knew they are not the best ones around here). USB ports just don't work and they can't repair it. I have seem some videos to do it but I don't have they skills needed. So it is dead...

    BUT in the meantime, my lovely wife, who has seen the deep pains I have been suffering, had bought me a brand new PS4 slim with some games.

    So the issue is solved: my beloved wife did it! (again). BTW, such a great machine! I have played RE VII and I love it!

    Yup the New Resident Evil is great fun.

    look out for the free DLC for that one when it's released

    http://residentevil7.com/uk/index.html#_dlc

    It will be called "Not a Hero" featuring Chris Redfield, though it sounds like a short story like some of the Paid DLC
