    Would like to know how to remove this keyboard plug & put a usb on in its place, can't find an adapter & can't afford a new keyboard. TIA

    Suggest instead that you buy USB keyboard - watch NewEgg for a $10 special with free shipping.

    If that requires a credit/debit card, I have neither. I use ONLY cash, but thank you :)

    While very similar, there is sufficient difference that an 'active adapter' is needed to give reliable service.
