Broken ps2 connector ACK-595 Keyboard

I accidently ripped the ps2 connector off of my Adesso ACK-595 mini keyboard, so I was going to replace the cable. But I'm not sure which wires go to which pins on the connector. The wire colors are red, green, yellow, and white. Does ps2 use a standard color code for +data, +clock, Vcc and Gnd?
Thanks

    Same problem. I figured out that the red is for positive and white it negative. http://www.bbdsoft.com/keyboard.html has some info but they don't list where the yellow or green wires goes.

My computer mouse and keyboard not functioning well. I replace the keyboard but only last a month.


Hi jhunix,

I'm going to need even more information; The devices that use PS2 connections, which device is it, and how many of those devices do you have?

One thing that might be a problem, if the issue you see is intermittent, I would check the PS2 connector and see if the pins are bent or broken. PS2 connector pins sometimes will bend or break and this can cause some connection issues if not completely stop the keyboard/mouse from working... Also given the age of your PC the PS2 port may just be bad, but this is not a fatal injury to a computer.

Replacing the Keyboard and Mouse with a standard USB keyboard and mouse, should resolve all of your issues.

PS2 is an older technology that keyboards and mice used to run on; Now however USB connections are used.

Further more, if this an HP Desktop with 2 USB ports on the front, and 4 USB ports on the back, you will want to avoid using the 2 USB ports on the front, especially on older HP and Dell Desktops, the reason is the power supplies often do not have enough power to run multiple USB devices on the front USB ports.

The back ports should be fine regardless of the number of devices.

Hope this helps.

Hello Glennfulcher,
The Adesso WKB-4000US wireless keyboard is a great one! I use to have one. What problems are you having with the keyboard? If you are having issues connecting it to the transmitter I would first suggest you check any cordless phones you have around the house. As the WKB series operates at 2.4GHZ so do most cordless phones. This can cause a transmission error with your keyboard. Try these steps if you are having connectivity problems. Because this is the most common connection problem with wireless keyboards and mice.
1. Check all cordless phones for frequency range. 2. If you find a close 2.4 GHZ cordless phone unplug it. 3. Attempt to reconnect the keyboard to the transmitter.
As I am not 100% sure what your question is I'll just give a quick summary of links that may help you get started.

How to use keys


There is a BLUE-coloured 'FN' key on the bottom-left of the keyboard. Hold that key down, and then press one of the "blue" keys, to get the "alternate" meaning of that key.

Scorpius K3NT USB Keyboard prevents resume after standby in Win2K


When entering standby, the usb ports go to sleep. Most motherboards allow you to tell the bios that you are using a usb keyboard. That should solve the problem. I keep an old ps2 keyboard plugged in and on the floor as a 'just in case'.
