    Power cord? Looks like a standard AT (not ATX) power supply should work.

    You'll need to do something about that NiCd barrel battery--the corrosion is visible.

    What Chuck said. Look for an AT type power supply which has 2 rails (leads) that are marked 'P8' & 'P9'. These leads snap in to connecter which is between your RAM sockets and the DIN plug for your keyboard. Very important: When you attach the P8 & P9 leads, make sure the the BLACK ground wire are adjacent to one and another. In other words, the black grounds should appear to be in the MIDDLE. Also, do you have a friend close by that has some computer savvy to help with the basics? Good luck.

    as mentioned: get that battery off there ASAP RFN
    cut it off with a pair of dykes if you have to, that caustic electrolyte that's leaking out will devour the traces on that board

    clean the area around where the battery was with some white vinegar afterwards to neutralize the basic battery fluid


    also: cool board, is that a socket 3/4 combo board??
