Hello There,
This problem is not common,
Try these:

1) Re-install the software - see what happens.

2) Un-install the software if 1) doesn't work and try using keyboard.

3) Read about common problems in the software and keyboard:

4) If all these fail then call Microsoft about this problem and let them diagnose it. They are the makers so they should know what to do.

A program deleted my keyboard and now I don't have one showing when I check the keyboard in my control panel. It works at the very start up but not after. I have tried a new keyboard and windows doesn't...


Generally additional drivers are needed for basic keyboard functionality, although Windows does actually install them as unique devices. Sometimes this process can take several minutes (depending on computer speed) and the keyboard will be unresponsive until it's actually installed. Try plugging in your keyboard, rebooting the PC, and giving it a few minutes once it's up and running.

If that doesn't work you can try booting into Safe Mode by hitting the F8 key during the startup process. This will load generic drivers and will allow you to troubleshoot additional drive and/or software issues.

MY KEYBOARD STOP WORKING, I REPLACE THE BATTERIES AND STILL NOT WORKING


Things to consider... how old is it?
Have you updated software on your computer lately, something major like windows, not the small stuff.
Also, found cell phones and other electronic things in close proximity will do a trick on them too.
Clear the area and try again

My Microsft Wireless Comfort Keyboard 4000 is not registering letters when the key is struck. New Batteries installed. Completely random and frequent.


if you are using it with a laptop, they have issues where the USB port can not power the reciever. If that is the case, i would recommend a powered USB hub. Otherwise, completely remove all of the software, take out all of the batteries, reboot the PC, install the software again and repair the devices.

Start simple - unplug and replug the cord that connects the keyboard to your computer. Try typing again. If it still does not work, restart your computer. If it still does not work after restart, go to Microsoft's website, and redownload the drivers/software for the keyboard. Good luck!

Keyboard not functioning properly


I had a similar problem with a new MS 4000 Keyboard. I found that I had two versions of the IntellPoint software on my Vista system. I uninstalled the older version (which came with my new computer) and the keyboard seems to be working well now. Check your system via the Control Panel, Install/Uninstall Programs and look for the MS IntellPoint software. Good luck.

Microsoft 4000 wireless keyboard is not working


Look under the wireless keyboard. There is a door to install batteries. It sounds as though you just need to replace the batteries on the keyboard. I think that they're AA.

Good luck!

How much memory do you have install in your computer? This may not be the problem but can cause the problem you have if you don't have enough memory installed.

Go to your control panel and then click add remove programs. Uninstall your old mouse and keyboard programs and then try to install the Microsoft one again. That should fix your problem.
