Windows 7: Keyboard receptacle

Keyboard receptacle

That one receptacle part at the back of the computer for the keyboard got a bit pushed inside when I tried to plug back my keyboard in. Now it doesn't work... as I'm typing this from the On-Screen keyboard. How do I fix it? I'll provide pictures in a minute.

Can you use this in a USB port ?

Not really. There's only one place where I'm able to plug in this keyboard. Here are the pictures.

Plug the adapter into the USB port below your broken purple keyboard port. Then plug you keyboard into the purple connector on the adapter. The green one can be used for a PS2 mouse if needed.

You're using a PS/2 keyboard.

As I see it, you have 3 options:

Repair the PS/2 socket (may not be trivial, as it's part of your motherboard) It may be possible to do it without replacing any parts, but I'm not familiar with PS/2 connectors.

Use a USB to PS/2 adapter, as pictured by Doc Brown, or

Get a USB keyboard (the one I'm typing this on cost less than $15US)


What advice were you hoping for?

What's that? I don't have that thing... I can't really understand what most people say here. I'm from a foreign country.

Do you have any places that you can buy computer parts in your foreign country ?
