Question about Goldtouch Ergonomic Keyboard - Black (GTEKB)

1 Answer

Invisible Keyboard Hello. I've just recieved the Goldtouch Ergo Keyboard and it was originally a PS/2, but I attached a USB converter to the end of it. I plug it in, and it doesn't even try to get anything to boot up. It doesn't give me a new Hardware message or anything. I am currently running Windows XP SP2, and if you need it, the model number is KFK-E87YQ. Any help is greatly appreciated, and I can't agree if you say bad connector, because I used it with another keyboard and it worked just fine.

I'd try reinstalling the CD Software that came with the Keyboard and with it installed into the USB port.
Here is additional info in case your not aware of how to reconnect the Mouse and Keyboard.
Normal 0 Press the Receiver button (and the lights will start flashing.
Then if the Keyboard isn't working, press the small RESET/CONNECT button on the back of the board to connect the keyboard to the receiver.

If the MOUSE isn’t working, push the small RESET/CONNECT button on the back of the mouse to connect to the receiver. Then they should work okay.
Hope this helps. Bud

How do I connect the mouse?


212
i am assuming you have a usb mouse and a PS2 connection on the computer. If this is the case then you need a female usb to ps2 mouse adapter
So that the mouse cable plugs into the USB female connection and the male ps/2 plug end goes int othe female ps2 port on the computer.
If this is the case you have the wrong converter the chester will convert a ps/2 on the mouse or keyboard to a usb on the back of the computer.. Can you tell us what sort of mouse you are trying to connect does the end of the cable have a usb plug on it a bit like the blue usb plug in your picture.
If this is the case then you need a female usb to ps2 mouse adapter
Google it and see the difference.

I want to change keyboards


Hi Richard,
most enhanced keyboards need a specific driver to run.
Go to the manufacturers website to download the driver. or search on Google.
You might also have to enter BIOS (accessed when the computer is booting..look for a message that tells you how to get into BIOS, or look in your user manual). Often it can be accessed by pressing the DELETE or F1 key just after you power up. The option in BIOS you may have to change is something like "enable Legacy support for USB".
Have you tried looking in the Dell support website? As you just recently(?) bought this, you can ring up Dell support centre and ask them to help.
Cheers,
Steve

Need to connect a wired keyboard


Do you have a PS/2 or USB keyboard? If it is a PS/2 keyboard (with a round 6 pin connector), you will need a PS/2 to USB converter. Plug the round end onto the keyboard wire and the USB end into either one of the side USB ports (next to the audio jacks and memory card reader) or one of the back USB ports )next to the DVI port). If you have a USB keyboard, plug into any available USB port. (You could also use a USB hub.) Make sure that you have the ports live (not turned off for security or power-savings).

I hope this helps.

I just buy a4 tecch keyboard (X-slim multimedia) and PORT USB doesn't work... Pleace help me


Hai,

If your keyboard has PS/2 port you have to purchase PS/2 to USB converter and then attache it to your keyboard. Then in your BIOS you have to confirm whether USB keyboard is available and it is enabled or not. If not you have to enable then your USB keyboard works.

I have a microsoft keyboard 3000 and the receiver does not have a light on it and it is plugged in and the keyboard and mouse both do not work, need some help


Verify the USB connection is plugged into the computer from the reciever, and if so try plugging into another USB port and see if that works. The power for the reciever is drawn from the USB port and not the PS/2 port

Microsoft PS-2 Intelli Keyboard


Don't worry, if u shutdown the computer your keyboard is still on it is just normal so it is not necessary to worry. and next thing is that when you change the PS/2 to usb adaptor, it won't work because, some of the keyboard doesn't support USB port so plz use as previous. altho it is switch on after shutdown the computer it will not bring the problem. so i don't worry. ok byee have a nice day.

External ps/2 key board not conected after attach usb converter


Yes, this is correct. If you connect a ps2 keyboard *after* Windows has started, you must reboot to have Windows "see" this keyboard.
This is "by design". A USB keyboard can be plugged in anytime.

I need to be able to use traditional mouse and keyboard ports on one computer and usb port on second computer can i convert the KVM-2 Corega swich to do this? This switch links my present two computers but...


When you say "traditional mouse and keyboard ports" i assume that you mean the green and purple PS/2 ports. If I am correct in my assumption then this is what you can do. You can buy PS/2 to USB converter for your mouse and keyboard. A simple google search should yield you plenty of shopping results. Just make sure that you buy PS/2 to USB converters, not USB to PS/2 converters or you'll probably get the wrong thing. Everything else should just be plug-n-play from there on out. Hope this helps.

KVM converter


Buy a usb hub and an usb extension, so that you can have 4 or 6 free usb at the front of your computer, and you can switch devices using usb rather then the mouse converter . Using the converter on mouse and keybord make easier for the plugs to slip out, and usb is better. Note some usb modem and some other device do not support usb hubs, you have to plug them straight into the free computer plug , if you have any.
