    USB keyboards are so cheap now it seems a waste of time going that route. Plus you can get a ps/2 to USB adapter that is even cheaper

    That's a sure way to fry or damage something. A PS2 device is not the same as a USB device, some newer devices have circuits for both and that's the only reason PS2 to USB adapters work, older ones do not. I would would recommend you stop and buy a new keyboard.
