Question about Computers & Internet
Microsoft wireless multimedia keyboard 1.1
Have you reset the button on the bottom of the keyboard? If you haven't, try doing so and also if it doesn't work, push the receiver button and then the reset button on the bottom of the keyboard. Hope that helps. Bud

Actually, I finally got it working. It came down to the dual plug from the wireless receiver.....it has both a USB and a PS2 end. The mouse wouldn't work unless both of them were plugged in, so I kept both of them plugged in even though everything I've found online says to only plug in one of them. I noticed that the PS2 end was plugged into the mouse port.....I figured why not try switching it to the keyboard port. I did and now both the mouse and keyboard work.

I have this same problem. The mouse is working fine, but I cannot get the keyboard to work. I have tried resetting the receiver and the channel on the bottom of the keyboard and that does not work. I cannot use the solution rjhh used above, because I am connecting to a laptop and there is not a keyboard port or a mouse port, only USB ports. Any other ideas? Please help. I am so excited to have an ergonomic keyboard again! Thanks,

press connect on the wireless device...let go and then within 5 seconds press the button on the bottom of the keyboard. Repeat the same steps for the mouse whther its working or not. The problem usually is that the keyboard and mouse are on the same "Wireless Channel" and only resyncing them puts them on a seperate channel, hope this helps.

press the connection button on the receiver. it worked for me. it took me a while to figure out there is a connection button on the receiver as well as the mouse and keyboard.

The devices probably came with a USB cable and a receiver, or just a USB equiped receiver, that you need to plug into your computer. Go ahead and plug the cable and receiver into the computer so that your wireless mouse and keyboard has a means to communicate with the computer. Next, Here is a website address where you can download drivers for your mouse and keyboard. You must first choose either mouse or keyboard, then the exact product and model, then the operating system, and finally the language. repeat the process for the other device (mouse or keyboard, whichever you did not choose first). Good Luck! And let me know if there are any further problems.
