    Get a new keyboard.

    They are cheap as dirt.

    new keyboard

    the keyboard has a wierd plug end i tried to plug this new one into it but i couldn't. the end looks the same as a newer one but larger and with only 5 prongs instead of six. can i still buy a keyboard like this?

    It would be easier if you stated the brand and model of the keyboard in question.

    They make adapters for that, althought I'm unsure of what they are called at the moment.

    For keyboard adapters look HERE .

    This is a uk site, but if you are elsewhere, I`m sure you will have no problem getting what you need.
