We would need to know the Brand and Model of the laptop. Most manuals are available on the manufacturers site under SUPPORT.


Another option would be to use a standard keyboard and mouse (wireless if you like) and just keep the laptop off to the side, away from everything.

Every notebook is different. (almost every one)

You may or may not have a PS2 socket, which you should use for the keyboard.

If there is no PS2 socket, you will need a USB Keyboard.

The mouse can be a USB wireless (or with wire).


But if you don't have a PS2 socket and do not have at least 2 USB, let us know and we can go from there.

Here is a link to a picture of the USB connector. I would say it is a little flat.

Sure, there are all kinds of adaptors. Here is a page from Tigerdirect that shows a whole bunch.

Possibly this is what you are looking for?
