Question about Microsoft K5100141 Keyboard

''r'' keyboard problem.

Hi
can someone help please, i have a single key issue, the trouble with this is my keyboard is wireless and my mouse too, it is a microsoft keyboard i bought at a fair, however i can't remember which stall i got it from.Upon typing i would do an e-mail and check back and noticed the "r" or "R" would be missing.
So naturally i popped the key off to inspect and could see no signs of damage etc, i am not a user that "thumps" down on the keyboard in general, but this is real annoying and i am simply not getting anything from this particular letter at all, my only solution is to have a "example of r & R on a note pad on my desktop and copy and paste when needed, its getting a real pain to do this and wondered if there was a solution or is it a new mouse and keyboard?
My problem is at present i have a young family and things are tight at present with the current situation, any solutions would be appreciated.
Kind Regards
Simon (using pc at work)

That is a strange one indeed, it only points to the conclusion that the key is damaged when pressed down, so it does not read.

Have you installed the software for the mouse and keyboard? I don't know if it would make any difference at all but it is worth a try.

Dell km632 wireless keyboard left alt key not working


Hi,

If the issue is only 1 key,
Please try rebooting system in safemode and check if 'Alt' key works (to figure out if the issue is with OS or Hardware)
You can even try getting into BIOS and check the Key functionality.
Can try to clean or blow the dirt around the Alt Key.
If nothing works need to replace the Keyboard.

Thanks.

Could be interference from a wireless device using the same frequency. Locate any other wireless keyboard/mice from the vacinity and try it again. Also, push the connect button on the bottom of the keyboard and see if that helps. Also make sure the base station of the keyboard is close enough to the keyboard/mouse.

I had the exact same problem but with my mouse! the keyboard worked so it obviously was a problem related to connecting to the router (USB)

I later discovered that the LED light on the USB is a button, so click that and click the little circular button on the back of your mouse, then be patient, the mouse should reconnect!

Key board help :{


The keyboard and the mouse work on different wireless sensors. Your wireless keyboard should have come with a receiver too. Unless the mouse and keyboard came together as a set, you'll need two different receivers. Check the battery compartment of the keyboard for the sensor. Some models have a hidden area there to store the usb key for the keyboard.
The only exception is if the keyboard is bluetooth, and your computer already has a bluetooth receiver in it (many laptops and phones come with this feature, lately). You will have to check the website for your keyboard's manufacturer to download drivers. You may also be able to order a replacement USB key for it, but I've never been able to. :P
Best bet is to contact the guy you bought the keyboard from and ask him/her: "Where's the USB receiver for this keyboard you sold me?"

Did it happen out of nowhere? or did you do something?
If it happened out of nowhere. The keyboard is probably dusty inside. FInd someone who can open the keyboard and clean all the switches.
Also, check if the cable it ok, it might be jammed or a pin inside might be broken.
