Sounds to me that the port is having transmission issues reporting back to the mother board.
try an alternative keyboard input to the one that you are trying, failing that try a different socked device, the older keyboards are ps/2 (round socket) if that is what you are using then try using a USB keyboard, the usb keyboards have a faster report timer than the older ps/2 keyboards.

hope this helps.

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.

Logitech m205 won't work, the light keeps blinking

If your unit is a wireless keyboard only, then there is a button on the bottom of the keyboard and another on the receiver that is plugged into the usb port of the computer. In order to calibrate the system when it looses its signal, you have to press and hold both buttons down at the same time for 30 to 45 seconds. That means press the button the receiver and the button on the bottom of the keyboard at the same time and hold them down for 30 to 45 seconds. This will revive the signal and bring it back to working condition.

If your unit is a wireless mouse and wireless keyboard then there are probably 3 buttons involved that need to be pressed and held for 30 to 45 seconds at the same time. One button on the mouse, one on the keyboard and the last on the receiver.

If you press and hold the buttons down as explained above, it will correct the problem.

1 year old grandson slammed his hand onto the number keys (right hand side), battery fell out, put it back in and shut it down, restarted it but now it won't let me type anything.

It looks like it was really hard on the keyboard. The PCB tracks are likely to be broken or the ribbon cable below the keyboard has come off its socket.

I had my gateway fx laptop running this morning and shut it down at around 7 am. When I turned it on it loads to the log in screen but I can't type or use the touchpad at all. Help

Press and hold-down the ON/OFF button, until it shuts off. Restart it, and see if it was an "intermittent" or "once-only" problem.

If you still have the problem, take the computer to a qualified technician, for professional trouble-shooting.

My gateway keyboard keeps uninstalling. I come in

After a little research, this page should help you. You will need to update the drivers for your keyboard.

Apparently there can also be a conflict if you are using a usb mouse and a standard plug keyboard at the same time (or vice-versa). Using both of the same type will normally stop this error.

If this doesn't work for you please post back.
