This follows my note of 2012. A gentleman in England (John) suggested a way to fix the keyboard problem. ie Internet to the rescue of a pre Internet computer! Remove the circuit board from keyboard. There are a lot of little screws that hold things in place. This exposes the contacts for each key. I activate the key function by touching the contact points with my finger. My 1987 Wang PC computer works! I plan to donate to the museum.

I have a Wang PC with a 20mb Winchester hard disk. The keyboard does not work. The execute and enter key and some other keys do not work. Does anyone know of a source where I might get another keyboard?

I'm now an IT executive and this was my first "real" computer (other than a MicroBee and Amiga), purchased in 1989 with a Toshiba P321SL 24-pin dot matrix printer for near enough to AUD$10,000! It had a 286 processor with a 20MB hard disk (that I though would never fill), 640k memory. At a later stage a 3.5" disk drive was added.

I've got one of these. It's been upgraded from a 286 to a 486 over the years, and now sports a 3.5" floppy drive and a CD-ROM reader. According to a sticker on the back panel, it was manufactured in Taiwan in December of 1988. With no other use for it, I'm sending it to a scrap yard at the end of the week. Fond memories, however.
