This is a hardware issue and should have been posted in the hardware forum.

That said, I did find at least one link for such a card. I think it should work.

The listing states it does. The issue would be if it works in the startup screens so you can get to the BIOS. Worth a try at $10.

If the pins from the PS/2 Keyboard broke off in the PS/2 port did you try removing them with tweezers? The motherboard ports are female. The pins are on the keyboard cord.

"I broke the ps2 pins to the computer" Which pins are you talking about? The PS2 port on the back of the computer doesn't have pins on the outside. Or, did you break something inside the computer?

Why not spend $3.00 and get a PS2 to USB adapter and use a USB port?

Sorry about that, I should have said I destroyed the keyboard ps2 port trying to get a broken pin out. My usb in Bios might not be enabled and thought i could go with a pci slot.

I gave you a link to one source. I think it will work.

You could go with OTH's suggestion, or confirm the USB ports are active and use one of those. So many choices.... :)

Out of curiosity, how did you manage to break off pins?
