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?

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.

How to hook up keyboard to my dell Inspiron 530

Keyboard come with two different connection options these days. The old PS2-style (circular with ~5 pins) port are less common on current machines these days. The Dell Inspiron 530 is one of them; you need a USB keyboard or a PS2 to USB adapter. This adapter, , is an example of how you would connect your old keyboard to your new computer. There are USB ports on the front and back of the tower.

If you bought the computer new, it should have come with a USB keyboard.

I hope this helps.

Old Solidtek ACK-595 keyboard needs maintenance

yes you can lubricate the buttons by simply popping them off and using some sort of gear grease, white Lithium grease works great. just apply a small bead on the bottom tip of the key and reinsert it.......those older keyboards are set up a little different so they do need cleaning too. While you have all the buttons off, take the time to clean the entire keyboard as thoroughly as possible with an old toothbrush and some isopropol alcohol. when u get it all back together you will prolly still have to depress the buttons a little harder than you would expect, thats just how they are.
Good Luck and pls rate this post.....

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'.
