not sure if i'm in the right place here but...
I need to replace the keyboard on a six year old machine but the connections from the keyboard are round like a PS2 connector but a bit bigger.
Any ideas where I can get either a new keyboard with this older style connector or some sort of adaptor?

This is an AT-style connector, you can usually find a adapter that will let you plug a PS/2 keyboard into the AT socket.

Here is what you need: http://www.buy.com/prod/Belkin_Keyboard_adapter_6_pin_PS_2_female_5_pin_DIN_male/q/loc/101/10031454.html

You may be able to find it at local stores.

hi and thanks for the info.
I have managed to find an adapter through 'netshop.co.uk' so hopefully this will have solved my problem.
