Sorry to say but your Palm Portable Keyboard, if it's the same as the one in the photo, is too different in technology to be able to be compatible with your mobile.

There are other versions which are bluetooth enabled as shown at the link below.

If you can confirm the Model No of your keyboard I will confirm is there is anything you can do with it.

How do I connect the mouse?

i am assuming you have a usb mouse and a PS2 connection on the computer. If this is the case then you need a female usb to ps2 mouse adapter
So that the mouse cable plugs into the USB female connection and the male ps/2 plug end goes int othe female ps2 port on the computer.
If this is the case you have the wrong converter the chester will convert a ps/2 on the mouse or keyboard to a usb on the back of the computer.. Can you tell us what sort of mouse you are trying to connect does the end of the cable have a usb plug on it a bit like the blue usb plug in your picture.
If this is the case then you need a female usb to ps2 mouse adapter
Google it and see the difference.

I purchased an emachines a few years ago but continued to use the keyboard that I was familiar with. It is now worn. I have installed the new emachines keyboard and nothing happens...no lights come...


Did the old keyboard plug into a PS2 keyboard socket (round purple connector) or into a USB port (flat rectangular connector)? Similarly, what type of connector is the new keyboard?
If it is the round PS2 connector you may have connected into the green PS2 mouse socket instead of the purple keyboard socket. Although the sockets are similar, they work differently.
If it is USB, then try moving it to a different USB port.
Try the keyboard on another PC.
If you cannot get it to work then replacement keyboards are very cheap.

Key board not detected ,message on booting f1 to contunue


You could try and swap the keyboard usb connector to another usb connector, if its a ps2 connection then check in the bios that it is enabled, it should be by default.

Also if you don't have a converter from ps2-usb go & obtain one & you should be fine, assuming your keyboards ok.

Have you tried rebooting once it is connected? Not sure if it makes a difference, but I know you can not hook up PS2 peripherals without rebooting.

My dell sk8110 keyboard has a round purple connector plug that fit my old computer. My new computer has only USB ports. How can I connect my keyboard to the new computer?

The round purple connector is refered to as "PS/2" type connector. You can find an adapter that converts PS/2 to USB connector. The above link was just to show what I was refering to. Hope this helps.

Either the switch underneath broke or the tabs that hold the long bar broke. In any event, since keyboards are usually $20. or less, why not just get a new one.

3 gnd (blk)
4 +5v (red)

6 (reserved)
try to interchange wire from pin 1 and pin 5 if doesn't work.
