Wireless keyboard and mouse

I have been using wireless keyboard and mouse but I need to use laptop without these and now when I type on the laptop (ever since installed) I get numbers in place of the letters on those keys with the blue number above them. Can you tell me how to switch or fix the problem. Even after removing the wireless...it still does not type properly.

Thank you. Feather

On your keypad there is a button ' fn' (normaly on near the windows key, blue in colour) which when pressed along with another one on the keypad (somewhere in the top row of the keypad) activates this function, what you have to do is a press these two key again simultaneously to de-activate this function. the second button or key will most likely be paired with one of the f_ keys

Why the wireless keyboard and wireless mouse don't work on my acer Aspire Z1-621 all in one pc


Strange that BOTH stopped working. Did you check batteries?
Remove USB controller for mouse and test keyboard alone,
Then replace mouse and remove keyboard USB You should use another keyboard (USB or PS2) because your computer won't start up without a keyboard.
If both fail, test them on some othrer computer, ask a friend. Might take sust seconsds to do it.
If test on other computer shows ok, you may have some problem in USB ports.
If actually neither of them work anywhare, so no way but still interesting question, how both of them went bad at same time?
Actually I 've heard many complaints of these wirelss keyboards and Mouse. Probably there are some very bad quality around.
I had a wireless mouse and worked only for about 3 months.

The mouse cursor on my laptop wandering without control?


This is what they call device interference, You might have to many wireless devices connected to a single USB port on your PC. Sometimes its a struggle between keyboard and mouse both wireless. Solution would be to limit the wireless devices to certain USB ports. For ex: plug the wireless keyboard to opposite USB port from the wireless mouse, vise versa. If you are using a multi-port USB connector, unplug the mouse from the multi-port and plug it to a single USB port on the PC.

My keyboard and mouse on the laptop does not work. i am currently using a wireless mouse and keyboard


Sounds like your laptop keyboard and possibly the touchpad need to be replaced. You can order them through any authorized HP service center, or you can contact HP for out-of-warranty support if your laptop's warranty has expired.

HP Laptop keyboard fails... sporadically


I suspect your problem may be caused by the wireless keyboard, even if you are not using it. You may be using your computer in a "noisy" environment where the wireless transceiver is picking up random signals and corrupting the keyboard interface. Or the wireless keyboard driver could also be at fault.

Can you de-install the wireless keyboard from your system and see if the problem occurs again?

NOTE: I had weird problems with my Microsoft wireless mouse until MS came out with an updated driver for it.
