Re: keyboard does not work
Need to what? I'm not sure what the rest of the question is but it sounds like you need to keep your computer from going to sleep mode. You can do this by clicking on your start menu then going to control panel then inside power options you can turn sleep mode off. There really is no real reason for a home pc to go into sleep mode.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

If you plugged your keyboard in while your computer is on sometimes it wont respond. By rebooting your PC it should clear this issue right up for you. If this does not correct your problem, message me and I will be happy to further assist you. Regards, Nico
If the end of the connector is round with pins (serial connection), just plug the keyboard back in and reboot the computer. With that style of connector, if they get knocked out or come loose while the computer is running, they will not always work again until you reboot.
If the keyboard uses the flat plug (USB) connector, the computer should be able to pick it up again without a reboot when you reconnect it. Also note that if the keyboard is USB and it stops working; if you have any other USB items hooked up as well (IPod, webcam, external drive,etc), check to see if any of those devices are still working either before rebooting your system. Sometimes, another unrelated USB device may crash causing ALL USB devices to fail simultaneously. If this is the case, unplug all USB devices except your keyboard and reboot. If the keyboard works again, reinstall all of your other devices one at a time until you locate the one that crashed all of them (if that was the case).
This is a common problem with KVM switches. To isolate the problem, here's what you need to do:
1. First, connect the keyboard and mouse directly to the problem
computer to ensure that the keyboard and mouse works correctly while
being directly connected.
2. Swap the connection of two computers. If you're having a problem on
the computer that is connected to port 1 of the KVM, connect that
computer to port 2 of the switch or just swap the connection. If the
problem recur on port 1, then there's a problem with the keyboard and
mouse cable on port 1.
3. But if you're not able to duplicate the problem on port 1 or 2,
disconnect the KVM switch from the computers, leave it disconnected for
4. After 5 minutes, reconnect the KVM to the computers and reboot the computers.
5. If same problem occur, then contact the manufacturer of the KVM and have them RMA the device.
Turn your computer off.
Temporarily replace your keyboard/mouse with "generic" units.
Turn your computer on.
Check that the F-keys work.
Now, do the F-keys work correctly?
Or, do you still get "keyboard failure"?
try a friend keyboard to see if its keyboard or computer if keyboard replace it if computer right click c:\ properties tools error check now fix errors and reboot see if keyboard works sometimes this method fixes system and registry errors hope it works for you
i can advise you with this.
it may help if you disable the original keyboard, as you may have a device conflict between the 2. you can do this from within windows.
ensure your drivers are correctly installed, for the keyboard, and the motherboard. Go into My Computer/ Control Panel/System/Device Manager And see if you have any yellow exclamation Marks. this will determine that the Device is functioning correctly. And if not you can update the driver or find the conflicting device.
Finally ensure this is the first keyboard that the computer sees, adjustment in the bios configuration.
