I assume you are using a version of Windows. If so, you will need to go to the control panel and reset the type of keyboard you are trying to use. This will most likely require loading a new driver for the keyboard. If you got a CD with the keyboard, there should be a driver for it on the CD. If not, you may find a driver on the internet ... try a google search for the name & model of your keyboard.

Try using a USB or PS2 external keyboard to see if that works. If it does, then there is a problem with the keyboard on the laptop. I would then try reinstalling the driver for the keyboard to see if that helps. You would go into Device Manager to reinstall the driver. Let me know if this helps you.

Hp wireless keyboard not working


These keyboards only seem to work with a certain type of battery. I found the best results with a plain ALKALINE battery. I'm specifically using an Energizer, but I would guess most any Alkaline would work.

My original battery went dead after 6 months, and I replaced with a rechargeable Nickel-metal hydride (NiMh). My keyboard started behaving sluggish less than 24 hours later. I thought there was no way it was the battery, because these are the batteries that last forever in a digital camera (when Alkaline's get drained in about 1 hour in a digital camera). I tried ever fix possible, even blaming it on a new wireless router I had put in. I changed the router's wireless channels, removed cordless phones, and about everything else.

Finally I put another set of rechargeable batteries in, and everything worked great for about another 24 hours. I then decided to go back to a plain Alkaline battery, and all has been well for over a week now.

I'm sure that's not the issue for everyone, but maybe it will help some. So many of the batteries today are made for digital devices, and we had to look specifically for the Alkaline, making sure not to get a NiMh or Lithium Ion battery.

Keyboard not typing @ sign


Hold the shift key and press 2 (not in the numeric section) and you should be able to do a @ sign, somehow these two buttons have exchanged their properties.
