Keyboard question

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.

Are You Ready for GDPR?

With the GDPR deadline set for May 25, 2018, many organizations are ill-prepared due to uncertainty about the criteria for compliance. According to a recent WatchGuard survey, a staggering 37% of respondents don't even know if their organization needs to comply with GDPR. Do you?

>>>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!
