Today's laptops and desktop computers are more user-friendly. As more people start use computers, operating systems, software and hardware accessories are coming with better instruction manuals and streamlined interfaces. Here are a few basic steps to hook up your computer no matter which brand you bought.
Connect the power cable to the back of the computer tower. The male end of this plug is often on the computer, but it is recessed into the casing. Once this power plug is connected, you don't want to plug it into an outlet until the entire computer is set up. Attach the monitor cables to the back of the monitor and then to the back of the computer tower. This cable will probably be the VGA type, which has a wide set of prongs in the middle and two screws on the outside. Be sure to twist the screws in to ensure the cable has a solid connection. Secure the monitor's power cable to the back of the monitor and then plug it into an outlet or power strip. Attach the mouse to the USB port on the back of your keyboard. The keyboard then plugs into another USB port on the back of the computer tower. Turn on the computer and the monitor.
If the computer powers up but the monitor doesn't display anything, make sure the VGA monitor cable is secured. If the status light on your monitor doesn't turn on, check the power cable connection. Check that the mouse and keyboard work once the computer turns on. Now you can hook up other devices, such as a printer or a web cam. A printer often can connect to a USB port and also may have its own power cable; a web cam usually just plugs into a USB or firewire port.
If it is a PS/2 keyboard (the one with the purple connector), your laptop has to have a PS/2 port, if not, you need an PS/2 to USB connector. If the keyboard is USB, just hook it up to the USB port of the laptop, and you're set!
if you are using a desktop computer check the connection of your keyboard at the back of your computer tower. there is a port there that is commonly colored violet that is for PS/2 keyboard. it looks like round connector with pins on it. sometime there are USB keyboard. check their connection if they are tightly connected to the tower. just to make sure if they are connected press num lock key if the led lights up then it is connected.
if you are using a laptop. you need to let laptop technician to check that out. because they need to open up the laptop to check what is wrong with it. in case you really need to use it you can buy a USB keyboard then connect it in your laptop. it will be your temporary keyboard.
If none of the usb ports are recognizing anything you hook up to them then that means the motherboard is bad. Easiest way to know, hook up a usb mouse or usb keyboard, those it should detect and install.
If it can't do that then you know for sure the motherboard is bad. If it does detect the keyboard and mouse then you know its the other devices that your hooking up that are faulty.
Most laptops require you to press the Fn (Function) key and another key on the keyboard to activate the external video port, not too sure which button on your model it is, but it should look like a monitor.
Other than that it could be your board is fried. Which will need replacement/ repair.
you can use the serial port if its working connect the serial/usb adaptor to the serial port interface then connect a usb keyboard/mouse to retrieve the information on your drive u can use that temporary till you change the keyboard
There are 3 ways to connect to the internet. Using a modem with a phone line, an ethernet cable that is hooked up to a high speed internet connection or using wireless. If the laptop does not have a modem, it may have wireless or an ethernet port. Ethernet is slightly larger than a phone jack. If there is wireless there should be a button to turn it on and off somewhere along the top of the laptop where the keyboard is. You could also put get type of those connections on a PCMCIA card which fits into the credit card like slots on the side.
