Question about Computers & Internet
My parents who don't live in the area and are computer beginners just got an emachine desktop. They read the directions and tried to set it up but can't seem to hook up the mouse or keyboard to the computer. It's a round plug with prongs for both. I told them to not force it but to keep turning it until it went in. They have been doing so for 2 days with no luck. They called tech support who pretty much said the same thing I did and then reccomended hiring someone to set it up. we are trying to avoid them having to pay someone. I'm starting to think maybe the parts are defective...but what are the odds of 2 parts being broken?
Any other suggestions of what can tell them to do?
Most keyboard and mouse connections have a notch in the top of the connector. this connector usually faces 90 degrees to the right. if that doesn't work then it's definately defective. i suggest going to frys or best buy and getting a USB compatible mouse and keyboard. those are less confusing.

Okay, setting up the mouse and keyboard is very simple. The mouse should have a green end, and the keyboard has a purple end. They fit into the corresponding places in the back of the computer. Also both the mouse and the keyboard have flat sides. Try attaching them in the four different directions (e.g; up, down left, right). If that still doesn't work have them look at the wires to confirm that the wires are not bent, that could explain the problem, because the twisting could have caused bends in the PS2 Connector.
