I just bought a new logitech keyboard.  But the plug for it to attach to my computer is smaller than the one my computer has and my existing keyboard uses.  Am I screwed or is there an adapter available for me so I can use the new keyboard?

Thanks,

Calith

Your new keyboard is PS/2, the computer is the old "IBM PC" type.  There are adapters available and the place where you bought the keyboard (or also Radio Shack) have them.

>>>have been rewarded with a grade of B.

And WHAT MORE could I have done for you on this question?  Is it my fault that YOU bought the WRONG KEYBOARD?  I explained your problem, told you the solution and even pointed you to a vendor that has what you need (and it's IN STOCK AS WELL!).

Ingrate!
