Default External midi key can\'t control virtual instrument

Hi. This is my setup:

G5 dual 1,8
OS 10.4.2
PT 6.9.2 cs3
Midi I/O

I can't play vistrual instruments in PT (like Mach5) from an external keyboard. I tried different keyboards on different midi ports, even if I route the midi to M5, the keyboard still control itself. Otherwise, M5 plays if I click on its keyboard on screen. Do you have ideas? Thank you,

Have you setup your AMS (audio midi setup)
Have you installed the driver for your midi i/o, include on your install CD.
Have set midi input to all on your midi channels.
Are you routing the midi channel to the appropiate midi instrument.

Try trashing the AMS prefs and building it again.
