INSTALLING KEYBOARD - Computers & Internet

Posted by on

  • Curtis Richner May 11, 2010

    Most keyboards do not require any additional software other than what the OS provides. If it's PS/2 (round plug) the computer may need to be restarted for it to install otherwise it may take a minute to be recognized. Please specify the type of keyboard and OS

Windows should find the keyboard by itself. If the keyboard is not working it may be bad. Try a different one. If it is PS/2 make sure it is not plugged into the mouse port by mistake. I've done that before. Also make sure the pins on the plug aren't bent. Check in device manager and see what it says about the keyboard in there. That is all I can think of right now.

Keyboard and speakers don't work

check your drivers to make sure you have all of them installed, especially after installing a new hard drive. also make sure to use a standard keyboard until this is done. i am assuming the ones you are currently using are usb. also make sure the usb settings are enabled in the bios. often, bios settings can cause problems with accessories or peripherals. one other thing is to make sure all connections have been secured. installing a new drive can be intimidating and something may have inadvertently become disconnected.

The mouse works but when we type on the keyboard, nothing happens

Hi. Well you didn tell what kind of keyboard are you using. Is it a USB or a wireless. I am assuming that it is a USB keyboard.
  1. 1st of all check whether the key board is properly plugged in2 your machine properly, check for loose connections.
  2. Check whether you have plugged it into the correct port,because usually the the internet keyboard do not adapt to the USB port, and a PS/2 to US adapter port wont work.
  3. Download and install the latest Keyboard Software
  4. Before installing the new driver dont forget to uninstall the previous one, install the new one and reboot.

Loose keyboard connection

You will have to either repair the connection with a soldering iron, replace it (which means finding a connector from another board and desoldering that one, then desoldering yours and installing the good one), or simply change to a USB keyboard.

By far the easiest thing to do is change to a USB keyboard. You could also use a simple USB to PS2 converter if you don't wish to change keyboards, the converter would simply allow you to plug your keyboard into a USB slot on your computer.

I have a new Dell Inspiron 530s and upgraded to the S510 silver wireless mouse and keyboard. I have been unable to set the system up because I can't get the mouse to work. I called Dell and they told me...

Certainly, its true... First make your system up with wired mouse and keyboard and then try installing wireless mouse and keyboard drivers on it... it's only for first time and after that you can use your wireless mouse and keyboard as default...
