Change keyboard and mouse.

I have a new computer with Windows 8.  The computer has the PS-2 sockets that are labeled keyboard and mouse.  I have limited USB sockets so would like to use my old keyboard and mouse to save USB sockets.  I plugged in old keyboard and mouse and then turned on the computer thinking it would find the new hardware.  It did not.  Is there a way to force the computer to find and use the PS-2 keyboard and mouse?    Thanks.

Sounds like a driver issue.  I would go to the website for the keyboard and mouse and search for Windows 8 drivers.
