I dont know how to connect my LOGIK LDSMWL11 mouse and keyboard, how do i do it?

Do you have an installation CD for that? Usually, it comes with the devices. You probably have a device that is connected to the computer, receiving the signal of the mouse or of the keyboard. That thing is connected directly by a USB Port or PS/2 port. Look carefully if you have that kind of thing (or device). And it is better if you connect that device when the computer is not ON. Then, turn ON the computer, see if it detects.

Ways to take care of yaour keyboard

Things You'll Need
  • Computer Keyboard
  • Cotton Swab
  • Isopropyl alcohol
    • Before doing any type of cleaning make sure to turn off your computer and disconnect the computer keyboard from it.

    • Once the keyboard is unhooked, turn it upside down and grab the can of compressed air. With the keyboard still upside down, tap it and watch all of the dust and grime fall out. Repeat this step 1 or 2 more times until nothing falls from the keyboard when you turn it upside down.

    • Take the cotton swab and dip it into the alcohol before cleaning the sides of the keyboard

  • If you want a more thorough cleaning, remove all of the keys from the keyboard and take a moist cloth and wipe away the dust. Also use the can of compressed air to vanish away grime particles.

  • Never use a wet towel on your computer keyboard

  • Turn off your computer and then unplug and reseat your keyboard. Occasionally computers will experience glitches that prevent drivers and software from loading correctly. Restarting your computer and plugging your keyboard back in will often solve the problem. If not, View your keyboard's status in the Device Manager. To access the Device Manager, open the Windows Control Panel and click on "System and Maintenance." Scroll down to the third section from the bottom and click on "Device Manager." In the menu bar at the top of the Device Manager window, press the button called "Scan for hardware changes." Windows will now scan your computer for any new or malfunctioning hardware. Once the page refreshes, go down the list of devices and click on "Keyboards." Right-click on your keyboard and select "Properties." A new screen will then pop up to tell you whether Windows thinks the device is working properly. If the system indicates the keyboard is not working properly but doesn't give you instructions on how to fix the problem, .

  • Visit your keyboard manufacturer's website and view the support or troubleshooting sections. Find the "Search Help" (or similarly named) box and enter your keyboard model number (this can be found on the bottom of your keyboard on a sticker or engraved in the plastic).

    My keyboard acts like the shift button is down but when i plug in a usb board it does the same thing.

    Check if the CAPS LOCK is on. The key to toggle this is right above the left Shift key (next to A). There is usually a light with the indicator near the top of the keyboard (other lights for Num Lock and Scroll Lock).

    You can tell if it is a Caps issue if the pressing the numbers above QWERTY give the numbers not !@ etc.

    I hope this helps.

    (you should turn off the computer and clean both keyboards. Sometimes, some dirt gets into the keyboard and triggers stray signals. There are a number of cleaning products that work; just make sure the keyboard is dry before turning the computer back on.)

    Hi, these instructions will help you, first, click on the "Start" button, in the "Start Search Window, Type: keyboard; the "Keyboard's" Properties window will open. You can (Test) to see exactly how your keyboard is responding. if you are still having the same problem, (check the Keyboard Status), try "Updating the Drivers," by clicking on the "Properties" button. Now in the event that neither of these solutions solve the problem, which I hope you shouldn't have to do anymore; try "Uninstalling the Keyboard. To "Uninstall the "keyboard," do the following. Shut-down (turn- off completely), disconnect all the Keyboard Devices that are attached to the computer. Next, turn-on the computer, and go back to the "Keyboard Properties," this time click on the "Change Settings" button, next click on the "Driver" button, and select the "Uninstall" button. Once that is finished, shut-down the computer again. Now you want to "Reconnect" all the devices that were connected before, and "Turn-on" the computer. You will repeat exactly what you did from the start, this will "Reinstall the Keyboard. Restart the computer again after all changes have been made; this will ensure the changes take place properly. "Rating the solution will let me know if it worked, or you may need further assistance, thanks."

    Character keys problem

    I doubt the keyboard itself is at fault. Try it on another computer and see if it does the same thing. If it works okay on the other system, then the Keyboard settings on your machine were probably changed. Go to the Control Panel and look at the Keyboard or Regional Options entry, and make sure that it is set to English. If your computer has foreign language support turned on, there may also be a control in the system tray at the lower right of the screen that has been changed from EN to some other language.
