Last Week at 2am in the night in the midst of submitting an important assignment suddenly many of my keyboard keys turned faulty.
As all shops were closed I had to thought of some way.
In my junk I found my old DIN-5 keyboard for my old Pentium II
I took me an hour to convert it to PS2

Step 1:

Join the wires with each other with respect to its purpose not its colour i-e clock with clock, data with data etc.

Step 5:

Tape it up and
Your DIY PS2 keyboard.
