Question about Microsoft ZV1-00004 Remote Control Keyboard/Mouse

1 Answer

Keys don't work at all

I have the Micrsoft wireless keyboard, model 1044, and bought it for use with windows mce box. I have the standard mce ir port that comes w/ the remote. However, while the special keys on the keyboard work fine (Start, My Videos, etc.), none of the qwerty keys work. How come? I've got Itellipoint 5.5 software installed, and I chose "wireless media keyboard" during installation, since this model doesn't have any real model name, just the number. Am I stuck? Is there any way to enable the qwerty keys on this keyboard to work with mce 2005?

Make sure the wireless is working fine and has good batteries in them. Try reinstalling it and see if all lights go on the keyboard. If not there might be an interferance in the system and the keys are not computing well. Try number lock and caps lock

Can't run the belkin wireless keyboard and mouse with my version of windows

Unless you have Windows 95 or earlier, I don' think this is a Windows problem. It's either the wireless equipment (the wireless sending unit) or a software issue. It could also be that the USB port you are using is non-functional. Try a different port. Try reinstalling the software. Try the Belkin site for help.

No mice work on my computer!I installed a wireless mouse, and now no mice work, the wireless, and normal keyboard does. How do I fix the mouse socket?

if it is PS2 then you need to reboot your computer in order for the computer to detect the PS2 device ( the PS2 device needs to be plugged in before rebooting )

If USB then try a different USB port and also check bios settings to ensure all usb keyboard and usb mice settings are all enabled.

You could go into device manager and delete usb hub etc and let windows re detect and re install otherwise go to

Microsoft Wireless Keyboard 1000 v 1.0 volume keys not working

On 32-bit machines: Use the windows search feature to find "hidserv.dll." Once located, copy the file and paste it into the %systemroot%\system32\ directory. Open the "Run" dialog box by keying the windows + R. Type "services.msc" and hit enter. Locate the HID Input Service. Right click and click "start." This should solve the issue!!

Go to start and run then type services.msc or if using windows 7 just go to start and type services.msc in the search box. Once open find the service "Human Interface Device Access". Change it from manual to automatic and make sure that it is started.
