    Are you sure it is the Keyboard plug? The Keyboard and Mouse connectors fit the same things and afre identical except fort their color ... purple or green.

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.

How can i install a magicjack?


Magic Jack is a plug and play device, just plug the USB to the jack and to your phone, and your computer will instantly recognize the hardware connected to it.

Sometimes, it does take a bit of time for the computer to recognize the hardware, so be patient! It'll take about 1-2 minutes for it to fully recognize and load, and you'll be up and running making calls in no time!

Do I need to buy a seperate headphone jack adapter in order to put my headphones in? The headphone jack seems too small. If so what should I buy?


What type of headphone connector do you have? The Yamaha keyboard headphone jack is a 3.5 mm stereo jack (like on a computer headphone jack). So if the headphones have a 1/4" plug, you need a 1/4" to 3.5 mm adapter.

I hope this helps.

My keyboard will not work


Hi,

Keyboard Is Dirty:

Keyboards should be cleaned with "spray-n-wipe" cleaner and a cloth or tissue on a monthly basis. Ensure that computer is not powered up while cleaning the keyboard. Compressed air can also be used to clean between the keyboard keys. Another tip: clean the keys with a cotton swab dipped in alcohol.

"Keyboard Not Found" Message:

Your keyboard is not plugged into the computer securely. Unplug it and plug it back in and the problem should go away. If this doesn't work, follow procedure: "Computer isn't taking inputs from keyboard" (below).

Key Is Stuck:

1. If a key does not work or is stuck in the down position, you may try to remove it with a CPU "chip puller" tool. These simple "L" shaped tools are great at pulling out keys. Once you've pulled out the stuck key, you can try to stretch the spring to "reanimate" its action.

Computer Isn't Taking Inputs From Keyboard

1. Is keyboard connected to computer? Ensure that the keyboard is plugged into the keyboard jack and not into the mouse jack. If the keyboard was unplugged, plug it back in and reboot the computer.

2. If the keyboard still doesn't work on boot-up, power down the computer and try to borrow a friend's known-good keyboard for troubleshooting. Plug the new keyboard up and boot up the computer. If the new keyboard works, the old keyboard is bad and needs to be replaced.

3. If the known-good keyboard doesn't work, check your BIOS to make sure it sees the keyboard. It should say, "installed." If the BIOS recognizes the keyboard, then you probably have a bad keyboard port.

I Plugged Keyboard Into Mouse Port

1. Many mice and keyboards today use a PS/2 connector
. If you plugged your keyboard into the mouse port (or viceversa), follow steps 2 and 3.

2. Shut down the computer and plug the keyboard into the keyboard port. The keyboard port is usually marked with a "keyboard" symbol. Plug the mouse into the mouse port (usually marked with a mouse symbol).

3. Reboot the computer; the keyboard should work now. If keyboard doesn't work, check your BIOS to make sure the BIOS recognizes the keyboard. You should see the words, "installed" or "enabled" under the keyboard.

4. If the BIOS recognizes the keyboard but it still doesn't work, you may have a bad keyboard port.

I Spilled a drink on my keyboard!

1. If you spill any liquid in the keyboard, turn it upside down ASAP. Drain all the water out of the keyboard, shaking it if necessary. If you've spilled water into the keyboard, just let it dry. You may use a hair dryer to dry out area under the keys (remember, too much heat and you could damage the electrical components).

2. If you've spilled a soda into the keyboard, completely rinse it in warm water. No soap please! You may use a hair dryer at this point or just let it dry for 2 days. Ensure the keyboard is perfectly DRY before you attempt to use it again. Don't plug a wet keyboard into electrical equipment. Think safety.

5. If the keyboard still doesn't work, replace the keyboard.

My computer turns on. Everything loads properly. My mouse is inopportune.cursor shows up on screen but will not respond.now my keyboard won't light up.I am pretty sure there is a problem where they plug...


You may have connected the keyboard and mouse cables into each other's jacks (assuming you're not using USB devices). Turn off the computer and swap the two - notice any color coded jack. The violet jack is for the keyboard and the green jack is for the mouse. Reboot.

Hopefully, you'll be up and running again.

Computer will not recognize any keyboard


This applies only if you are attaching the keyboards to PS/2 port: the problem could be that PS/2 port has failed. In this case it is a hardware problem, and it is not likable that it can be fixed. You should find a keyboard that connects to USB port and see if it works.

If we're talking about USB keyboard, possibilities are that USB support for keyboard and mice has been turned off in computer BIOS.
