my laptop has no midi/joystick port and only has headphone and microphone sockets. how do i connect my keyboard which has a cable with a midi 5 din connector (to k/board) on one end and a joystick d plug on the other end for the pc. have i been sold the wrong laptop? if so can somebody point me in the right direction i really need some help? i want to play music on my k/board and process/record/produce it on my laptop with cubase or similar. thanks for any help

Forgive me if I'm being a bit obvious, but many laptops have the relevant ports concealed behind a flap on the back of the machine. have you checked for such a cover ? If there isn't anything then post the make and model of your laptop, maybe somebody can come up with some suggestions.
