Keyboard will not type onto computer screen, and wireless mouse not working either.

Check the transceiver dongle that's connected to the USB port on the computer. Disconnect it and reboot your computer. Once the computer is booted and running, reconnect the dongle and allow Window to discover the device and load the driver. Wait until Windows says it's ready for use. If it doesn't get detected, then the dongle may be bad.

The keyboard wil type anything, battries are new, reset & rebooted

hi there, make sure that the connection between the keyboard and computer is connected. If not, try bringing the keyboard closer to the receiver. If that doesn't work, then the keyboard has a physical problem.

Sometimes my wireless keyboard will type multiples of the same character when I've only hit the key once, and then other times it won't respond and will end up typing the first & last letters of a word...

Try plug it in to another USB port while the PC's switched on. It will force the computer to redect your mouse and keyboard and might fix the problem.

Another test would be on another PC or laptop. If it does the same thing then the keys are probably getting stuck down. Has it had anything spilt on it? Try a vacuum over the keys, you'll be suprised what gets caught under the keys (usally paperclips!!).

My acer notbook keyboard will not let me type the @ or the ~ do I need to do anything different

Check whether it requires any special key pressed when you want to type that character. Probably it should be the "Fn" key in Acer.

Is the keyboard setup correctly?
Go to Start Menu - Control Panel - Date, Time, Language, Regional Options - Add Other Languages - Languages Tab - Details - Check the Country and Keyboard settings.
You may need to Add a new setup, switch to that, Reboot, remove the original.

Usually computer keyboards are not locked. The problem which you're facing it due to the non-recognition of the keyboard by your computer. You should shut down your computer, switched off the power supply then remove the keyboard connectors and plug them again. Then you should on your computer and your problem will be solved.
If you'd still face problem then go to My Computer>Control Panel>Keyboard>Hardware settings> Troubleshoot. And your problem will be solved.


Remove any special drivers for your keyboard/mouse (if you have any drivers other than the normal windows drivers), then remove keyboard and mouse from the device manager.

Reboot the machine and let windows refind them and install the default mice/keyboard drivers. Don't mess with any other fancy drivers to support extra mouse buttons or anything until you know you are working at this "basic" level.

Leave it like this for a few days to see if it works ok. If this works, then my guess is its a driver very careful if you install additional drivers. If it still does not work ok, since you say you've tried the keyboard on other computers, then I might suspect the ps2 port has gone south. That would be bad, because that would require a motherboard RMA/change.
