If it came with your pc it should be color coded. If it's pink, look on the back of your pc for that same color hole. It should be round. It should also have a tiny picture of a keyboard next to it. There is a little mark on the metal part of the ps2 connector. This goes to one side. It will only fit in a certain way. If your having a problem, place it gently in the hole, push gently while turning and you'll feel when you get it to the right spot. It will allow you to push it in all the way. Let me know if you have a different type of keyboard (ie usb) . USB keyboards grt plugged into a usb slot. There should be 2 or 4 slots in the back that look similar to the end on your keyboard plug. It will on fit in one way. If this did not help, let me know if your keyboard came with your pc and what make and model# your pc is. If it's wireless let me know the make and model# and I'll let you jnow how to do that. If this solved your problrm PLEASE rate this as fixed. If mot don't rate yet just add a comment letting me know the further info I requested and I'll be happy to assist you further. Thanks.

Emachine keyboard not working


Hi Lore,
Try to reseat the keyboard connection from your computer. Check for lights indicator on the keyboard . To isolate if the keyboard is really not working try using a spare keyboard (if available).
If you are using a keyboard with USB connection, then try connecting it to other USB ports on your computer then restart your computer.

Hope this helps.

Thanks

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.

Wireless keyboard will not reactivate when battery was replaced.


Besides replacing the batteries, you need to resynchronize the wireless connection for the keyboard to your computer.

To do this, press the "Connect" button under the keyboard, then press the "Connect" button on your receiver that connects to your computer. That should bring the keyboard back to life.
