I tray to changing 3 new keyboards but still reads the problem. What's your problem?


OK what type of keyboard are you using Serial or USB? A serial type keyboard has a round end that plugs into the computer's PURPLE port (the Green Port is for the mouse).

A USB type keyboard has a flat end that plugs into one of the computer's usb ports.

If you are using a Serial (Round end) type keyboard, it is not Plug and Play (meaning you cannot unplug it or plug it in while the computer is running or it will not be recognized). You can only plug or unplug the serial keyboard when the computer is off. If you turn the computer off and plug it in good then reboot and you still have a problem then since you have tried 3 different keyboards, maybe the Purple Serial Port where the keyboard plugs into the computer is bad. Try a USB Type Keyboard.

A USB (Flat end) keyboard is Plug and Play. You can unplug and plug it while the computer is on. Also you have the luxury of plugging it into any one of the computer's usb ports.

Model number 9131URF keyboard has stopped working. i have put in new batteries but no luck.


if this is a wireless keyboard then you will need to re-link the keyboard to the usb device. there might be a reset button on the bottom of the keyboard and the usb device for re-linking them together. to test if it has worked by opening notepad then type some keys. if that doesn't work then you will need to un-install and re-install the wireless usb keyboard.

My Logitech keyboard MX3200 has stopped working. I changed battery no help. Pushed the connect button - no help Could I have turned it off by accident. I cannot move arround with arrows either.


Try plugging in a USB (a keyboard that connects via USB port) keyboard. If that functions properly then your wireless Logitech keyboard is defective.

The pc does not recognize the key board and won't let me type. I have even tried a new Dell keyboard...same problem


Ok I am going to assume that you are using a keyboard with a PS2 plug. Try using a USB keyboard. If the USB keyboard does not work check and see if other USB accessories work.

If you are using a device with a PS2 type plug you should check the drivers for PS2 keyboards by opening control panel then click the "system" icon, then the "Hardware" tab, then "Device Manager"

If you are seeing a yellow exclamation mark then the device driver should be uninstalled. it should automatically reload when you reboot. If the PS2 port is bad you will need to have it serviced by a competent technician.

The mouse works but when we type on the keyboard, nothing happens


Hi. Well you didn tell what kind of keyboard are you using. Is it a USB or a wireless. I am assuming that it is a USB keyboard.
  1. 1st of all check whether the key board is properly plugged in2 your machine properly, check for loose connections.
  2. Check whether you have plugged it into the correct port,because usually the the internet keyboard do not adapt to the USB port, and a PS/2 to US adapter port wont work.
  3. Download and install the latest Keyboard Software
  4. Before installing the new driver dont forget to uninstall the previous one, install the new one and reboot.

How do I set up Wireless MultiMedia Keyboard 1.0A? I am not currently using this keyboard, but would like to use it again. The last time I used it- quite a while ago- it stopped working. The problem may...


just plug it in to the system, it will work without any software installation and can be plugged in to usb without shutting down, most systems run fine with two keyboards so if it's usb, plug it in and see.

Keyboard intermittent


There might be a problem with the keyboards PS2 port. You can bypass the PS2 port all together by buying a PS2 Y-adapter to usb port. This Y adapter will allow you to plug your PS2 mouse & keyboard into it and than you plug the other end into a free usb port. You do not have to plug the PS2 mouse in if you do not want to. Just plug in the keyboard. If your keyboard functions than there is a prolem with the keyboard's PS2 port. The PS2 Y-adapter to USB runs about $12.00 to $15.00. You can find one at Wallmart.
