    My Microsoft remote wireless keyboard warms up after an hour or so and types fine. Before that, no key seems to want to work.

    Pushed both buttons and tried reboot. Still no joy.

Most wireless devices have a pushbutton that you push to sync the Keyboard and receiver up again.You likely need to push one or both of the buttons. One is on the keyboard and the other is on the little USB thing (receiver) It may also require a reboot as well afterwards.

Try resetting the computer then hitting the connect button on the keyboard after the computer has started. Or unplug the keyboard and turn the comp on before plugging in the keyboard and hitting connect.

Keyboard keys will not work properly. must hit many times before one letter will show on screen or stick or delay. very slow. mouse too batteries are new


try blowing out all of the dust from your keyboard using a fine air blower from an air compressor making VERY sure there is no MOISTURE in the lines.
dust causes static which causes lots of problems with a computer and its parts
or if this does not fix the problem
Click start control panel keyboard you can change your settings there
or you might have uninstall the keyboard then restart your computer then reinstall it and its drivers
click start control panel keyboard hardware then properties you hould see driver details and have options to,update driver,roll back driver,uninstall
if your computer came with a motherboard disc the drivers could be on it
diconnect the keyboard then reconnect it then reinstall the driver
make sure the lead has a secure seating if applicable or the usb device
hope this helps

New netbook. Attempting set-up. Keyboard keys don't work. Nothing gets typed in. Just hear a click.


Disable the Numlock key and check if the same issue persists. You can reinstall the Keyboard Driver to resolve the issue. Uninstall the Keyboard Driver from the Device Manager and restart the Computer. The Computer will reinstall the Keyboard Driver when you restart the Computer automatically.

Our keyboard on our laptop jus stopped working,,how do we get it to work?


Try to power drain the machine first, unplug the charger/ac adapter and battery.Press and hold power button for 10 secs then put the battery back in and plug in charger.Check if keyboard will respond. Try to connect a usb keyboard to be able to access windows or use onscreen keyboard. Then try to go to device manager.For xp, start->right click on my computer->hardware->device manager->keyboard. for vista, start->type in device manager in start search ->keyboard. Try to uninstall and reinstall the driver for keyboard then restart the machine.If this doesnt work then you might need to replace the keyboard.If the system is under warranty then you can have the machine service by the manufacturer.Hope this helps...

Hmm, sounds like a electrical fault but it could be a virus so scan your computer just in case.

Keyboard is messing up...the keys won't type or they type many times I've tried dust remover and new batteries


Sounds like its a problem with the receiver. Try reinstalling the usb receiver and make sure that its being recognized properly by windows. Also make sure your receiver is positioned good so its not to far from the mouse or keyboard.

If it is then type and if your having the same problems then they keyboard would be faulty at this point. Many times the main board inside of these keyboards go bad especially if water may have gotten spilled on them.

Keyboard does not type brand new batteries


look for a little hole on the keyboard, the button is the size of a pin head, it is for resetting the keyboard after you put in a new battery. when you find the reset switch the keyboard light will work and the startup bar will show it has found a new device.
