Default Ps/2 to USB adapter.

i have a keyboard which has a ps/2 connection on the end, as i don't have a
ps/ 2 port on my laptop i have been looking for a while to find a ps/2 to usb adapter so i can use the keyboard. A while back i found one which cost me 3 it was yellow, it came from one of thoose cheap shops, if you understand me. I took it home plugged it in and a message popped up saying the device had mail-functioned. I tried it on main pc and again i recieved the same message pop up. I had a look on Amazon for an adaptor, i found the exact same one in yellow so straight away i wasn't sure if to trust it or not! I had a look in maplins electronics shop, i found again the correct adapter but it was 6 only for the reason it had gold plated ends to it, i only want a simple standard one.

Does anyone know where i can purchase one from apart from ebay, maplins and amazon?

(Just to make it clear im looking for a female ps/2 to male usb adapter.)


p.s sorry for the essay.
