    your best bet would probably be to get a ps/2 to usb adapter and run your mouse off the usb port.

    iss, is saying to just get the adapter and use it instead of the ps/2. Plug it into one of your usb ports.

    I use a ps2 wireless mouse running through a usb at work, with the adapter. This woul be the cheapest and easiest fix for you.

    I believe he is saying he broke the PS2 connector on his keyboard cable.

    Keyboard's are cheap. If your saying you broke the PS2 connector on the keyboard cable then buying another keyboard would be your only choice. If your saying your broke the PS2 port on the motherboard then like iss said, get a PS2->USB adapter and use your USB port to connect your keyboard.

    yeah, the plug on the keyboard is broken, sorry for the confusion ---

    and i just bought this keyboard...why would a little thing like that be impossible to replace?

    Well, unless you have an extra PS2 keyboard lying around and you have the wiring skills to cut the existing one of and replace it with an extra, then your out of luck. Sorry :p hehe
