If you have a volt/ohm meter try checking to plug that goes into the keyboard for voltage on the DC setting. If there is none, you will have to replace the adapter. Be sure to plug the adapter into the wall when you check it or you will get no reading. If that is not the problem, then it is probably the receptacle for the DC end of the power supply. What happens is that if they get bumped the solder connector on the circuit board breaks. If you do not feel comfortable fixing this yourself, you will have to find someone who is capable. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Casio CTK 810 with Windows 7
You need a midi to usb interface, otherwise it is quite simple. I personally have an M-Audio interface that plugs into my midi out and plugs into your usb port on your computer. Once done, you can create a profile in Reason for your CTK. Windows 7 will notice the M-Audio device and then you will be able to use midi. You may have to install a specific driver for the particular M-AUdio device (or another midi to usb interface) but that is simple. You do not have to worry about a driver for the keyboard.
In my experience, M-Audio makes about the best midi/usb interface, and they come in all popular configurations. I use a very small 1-to-1 interface, though there are multi port interfaces one can buy. I purchased mine on eBay, though you can find them at Guitar Center if you have one in your City, or alternately Musiciansfriend.com web site. Many online stores sell them though. You amy want to use Amazon or a price comparison web site to find your best deal.
Thank you for using FixYa, and good luck.
