You will have to either repair the connection with a soldering iron, replace it (which means finding a connector from another board and desoldering that one, then desoldering yours and installing the good one), or simply change to a USB keyboard.

By far the easiest thing to do is change to a USB keyboard. You could also use a simple USB to PS2 converter if you don't wish to change keyboards, the converter would simply allow you to plug your keyboard into a USB slot on your computer.

Keyboard failure on dell dimension 2400


Your keyboard needs to be pluged into one of either a USB port, if it has a USB connection or a PS2 Port if it has a PS2 connection.

USB is the rectangular shaped port, while the PS2 is a round, usually purple coloured connector.

Try pluging it in and out, with USB connection type try another USB port at the rear of the chassis or on the front too.

It is possible that the keyboard is faulty, in other words it has come to the end of it's life. Meaning that you may need another keyboard.
Try this keyboard on another computer, a friends computer will do. You could even try a friends keyboard in this computer as another test.

Take care!

Dell Dimension 2400 won't power up?


It is possible that you may have a bad power supply and need to have it replaced, it could also be something simple such a a loose connection on your motherboard. I would start out by removing the power supply from the machine and having it tested at a computer shop. Also make sure everything is plugged in correctly on the hardware. Let me know if this helps please, Jeff from fixya

When typing the keyboard hesitates and skips letters.


Turn the computer off.
Disconnect your keyboard.
Connect a different keyboard.
Turn the computer on.
Try using the alternate keyboard.
If it works properly, then you have a solution.

On booting up, computer can not load keyboard system.


One possible problem is that your PS2 keyboard port at the back of your PC is ruined. In time, those so called "outlets" become loose specially the ones with cables which usually got pulled or tangled and make the port strained and the contacts get loose.
If that is the case, you might need to replace the keyboard port, or just stick with your usb keyboard.
