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.

I want to connect my desktop to my laptop


It doesn't work that way. You can't hook a desktop up to a laptops screen. You can hook your laptop up to a tv however for a bigger display, but that isn't what you need.

Keyboard problem & it doesn't work prefect


If the keyboard has a round purple connector, power down the computer then unplug and then plug in the keyboard. Power on the computer. If it works your done if it doesn't replace the keyboard. If this is a USB keyboard, with the computer on, unplug and plug in the keyboard if it works great, if it still isn't working replace the keyboard. NOTE if this is a multi functional keyboard (special keys at the top) make sure you install the driver and any software associated with the keyboard.

Monitor will not boot up is reading no input signal


So either the computer isn't generating a video signal, the cable isn't carrying the signal to the monitor, or else the monitor isn't capable of receiving a video signal.To test this, first try a video cable that you know is good, in case your cable is bad, If it works with the other cable, the problem was your original video cable. If it still doesn't work, put your original cable back, and hook another computer up to the monitor. If the monitor makes the same message, the problem is with the monitor. If the other computer works when connected to this monitor, your problem was that the original computer isn't booting (which could be due to several reasons I will list below), or the video adapter is broken.Possible reasons for the computer not booting: bad power supply, bad power button, bad hard drive, bad memory, bad motherboard component. If you determine that it isn't booting, unplug everything except the keyboard mouse monitor and power cord, to see if that makes a difference. If it boots after that, something you unplugged was causing the problem, plug them each back in one by one, rebooting in between, and when it stops booting properly, the last thing you plugged in is causing the problem.

What plugs do I plug an xbox360 into on a magnavox dvd player


Jesus, not even the red white and yellow hookups? Oh, man, sorry, but I would need the model of the DVD player...and how did you hook up the DVD player if it doesn't have the red white and yellow hookups? just curious. Also I would highly recommend getting a new TV outright. If your tv is that old, it doesn't have HD, and that essentially defeats the whole purpose of having a powerhouse like the xbox 360. If you want the dvd player hooked up, give me the model number, but if you want a new tv, give me a budget and I am positive I can direct you to something reasonable.
P.S. (being tech savvy isn't a requirement for the newer tvs. in my honest opinion, You have to be a WIZARD in order to get all the inputs to convert to the correct format so it can be displayed on the older tv, so hanging onto the old tv is actually more trouble than a new one. Just saying.)

How do I connect this keyboard to the computer


Keyboards connect several ways. Older systems use a PS/2 connector (round) that plugs into the purple/gray jack on the back of the computer. The mouse plugs into the green jack next to it.
If you have a USB keyboard, it plugs into any USB slot.
PS/2 connections must be made with the computer off. USB connections work any time. If one slot doesn't work, try another.
If the keyboard doesn't work, try another.

My jazzy is used but i bought new batteries for it but the key pad will only cut on when the charger is attached. and wont cut on at all with out the charger.


super hmmm new batteries? well I would check the battery connections because you should be getting power to the joystick. The charger is providing power thru your joystick to be able to turn it on. Now when you plug in the charger are you getting any movement on the meter at the rear of the chair? If not but staying at zero then the charger is not charging the batteries and your batteries are not hooked up correctly. You will have to remove the seat and cover over the base to have access to the batteries check all the connections and make sure that if the plugs are colored that the red and white plug is plugged into the red and white plug going to the front of the chair and that the black and white plug is plugged into the black and white plug going to the front of the chair. If the wiring is ok then get a meter and read the voltage across each battery they should read 13+ volts fully charged. Plug in the charger and read the voltage at the batteries again if charging then you should read 16+ volts. If the voltage doesn't change then the charger isn't working correctly and if reading a good voltage then the batteries are bad and need to be replaced. Hope this helps

Keyboard not working-no power


Double check in the ends of the plug to make sure you did not bend or break any pins when you plugged them back in.

If you did then it is quite possible you need new and that you should also check the sockets on the back of the computer to make sure they are not damaged either.

Turn signal wire colors right and left


The circuit breaks the ground to work. Both wires go to both signals, the black have two different connections to get back to the signal relay 9different paths). Take your old wires and follow back to see how the were run before.
