Question about E-Machines AAFQ50400000K0 Keyboard
What is the correct way to hook up a new keyboard. It has the purple (lavender) plug. I plugged it in and it isn't working.
Well, the old round plugs with the tiny little prongs inside are called PS2 (named after the IBM personal System 2 from wayyyy back in the day). anyhow, the PS2 style requires that the pins be aligned properly, and not bent. they are circular and there is a plastic bar in the center that should go into a plastic slot on the plug in. also, make sure the arrow is facing the "top" of the motherboard. (if it is a tower pc then the top of the board will be on the left side of the machine, if it is a desktop machine, then the top of the board will face the top of the machine). Please do not force it. its glides in easily if facing the correct direction. ALSO, one small 'detail': older PS2 style devices are not "hot swappable" which means the machine must be off when you add or remove them. once you restart, the computer will find them and activate them.
