XPS One Keyboard's Characters not functioning

My XPS one keyboard is connected to my XPS one through it's RF/bluetooth connection. However, only the touchpad and the media keys work, as well as fn+f1.
Any way to get the characters to work again (including the arrow keys) would be great.
My wireless XPS one mouse works with my XPS one however, which is odd.

Try to re-sync the keyboard to the computer. Here’s the procedure:
1) Turn the computer on.
2) Turn on the keyboard
3) Press the sync button on the rear of your computer’s left speaker.
4) Press the sync button on the keyboard. ( I believe it’s on the bottom of keyboard)

The sync button has a symbol next to it, (2 arrows going in clockwise direction).
Ensure that the keyboard battery has not run low.

If that doesn’t work, look for a Bluetooth icon in the lower right hand corner of your desktop and double click on it to open the Bluetooth configuration utility. See if there’s a configuration file for the keyboard. If there is, delete it and then re-detect Bluetooth devices.
Hope this helps.

I have a dell xps that came with a wireless/bluetooth keyboard with mouse pad and i have another dell xps 420 that i'd like to use the wireless keyboard on...they are both dell xps's and both


Wireless/Bluetooth keyboards and mice can only be used with one device at a time it is like a bluetooth headset once it is paired with a phone it will 99.99% of the time only work with that phone and that phone only, Wireless keyboards and mice are setup on the same principal once they are paired up with 1 PC to use on another PC you have to remove the pairing. The worst case scenario is that the second PC's Wireless/Bluetooth has failed. I hope this helps.

I have Dell XPS M2010. Windows Vista 32 bit. 350 bluetooth module The mouse connects and works well. The keybboard won't pair. I put it into discoverable mode and the three lights next to the power...


The solution is to formn a class action suit against DELL for this overpriced piece of junk. I went through 3 of them and they all failed.

DELL left these dogs out there in the market until the warrenties expired on all the M2010 machines and now they will charge you for their failure to build a solid product.

The Bluetooth Access Icon is nowhere to found in the control panel, so the manual is wrong as well.

DELL is acting irresponsble and needs to be punished. Let's form a Class Action Suit today.

My iPhone 4 (4.1) doesnt get connect with Mobile Wireless Keyboard? (Mexico)


It looks like the type of keyboard and mouse you are using is not bluetooth. You can't use the iphone 4 with just a wireless keyboard. It has to be a BLUETOOTH keyboard.

The Keyboard/Mouse combo you have from verbatim is most likely using Radio Frequency (RF) like the same frequency a TV remote control would use. Bluetooth is a different type of wireless technology that has to be paired with your iphone for it to work.

The wireless keyboard and mouse are not working.


  • Check to ensure that the wireless receiver is plugged into your computer. Press the "Connect" button on the bottom of the receiver to attempt reconnecting your mouse and keyboard to the computer. If your mouse and keyboard use Bluetooth, ensure that your computer's Bluetooth is active and detects the mouse and keyboard.
  • Check to see if the keyboard and mouse are turned on. If the power indicator lights on the keyboard and mouse are not green, press the "Power" button to turn the keyboard and mouse on.
  • Check the batteries of the mouse and keyboard. If the batteries are dead, replace them with fresh batteries and reconnect the mouse and keyboard to the computer by pressing the "Connect" button on the bottom of the wireless receiver attached to the computer. If your mouse and keyboard use rechargeable batteries, let the batteries recharge before using the device again.
  • Uninstall and reinstall your wireless keyboard and mouse drivers. Sometimes, the Logitech drivers are at fault for a bad connection. Use the Control Panel to uninstall the old drivers, then visit the Logitech website and install the latest drivers for your keyboard and mouse.
  • Search the Logitech Support Database. If your keyboard and mouse are still failing to function properly, visit the Logitech Support website and browse the support page for your product for specific solutions.

Keyboard locked or not working. three lock lights blinking blue


This isn't a fun solution - the best thing I've come across is to hit both reset buttons (on the computer, and on the keyboard) until both are flashing - pull up your bluetooth settings (from control panel (I've got mine shortcutted into my task bar)), then disconnect the keyboard, and search for a new item - after the computer finds a new keyboard, connect using a new pairing code.

While this might not be the best solution, it works for me, and I don't know of a better one, or quicker!

Keyboard Reset?


try To download the latest drivers for the keyboard that you are using, visit the following Microsoft hardware Web site: 
http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/download/download.aspx?category=MK



If the issue occurs again, connect the keyboard to a different computer. If the keyboard functions correctly on a different computer, the port to which the keyboard was connected on the original computer may be damaged. If this is the case, contact your computer manufacturer to inquire about how to repair or replace the damaged port.
If the keyboard does not function correctly on another computer, the keyboard may be defective. If this is the case, and the warranty on the keyboard is still valid, you can exchange the defective keyboard for a new keyboard.


good luck :)
