GJ on using on-screen keyboard.

Do you have access to another machine where you could try plug in this keyboard to see if it works?

Can you better explain what you mean "keyboard with purple stick" and "when i put in the purple thing behind PC it won't work". Are you talking about the end of the cable that connects the keyboard to the computer? The PS/2 connector?

If so, as suggested, could you try the keyboard on another computer? It sounds like the keyboard is dead. I'd suggest a new USB one.

I think that's what he meant, PS/2 connector for keyboard is colour coded purple.

Did you restart the computer.

PS/2 Keyboards and mice are not plug & play like USB ones are and that's why a restart worked.
