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.

My wireless keyboard has stopped working so I cannot login, I have changed the batteries but it still will not work, can you please help?


It's a silly question to ask but have you made sure the batteries are in the correct way round, and also they are new and a matched pair, and is your mouse if it's wireless operated batteries okay.

Good luck

Keyboard is not working and how to solve it


Hi there please can you clarify?

Sometimes if you are using a USB keyboard it doesnt pick up the driver. Try usinf one with a PS2 connection (green) and restart computer via the mouse. When it reboots it should recognise the keyboard.

Hope this helps, if not I'll be happy to help further,

Hi there,

If your computer works fine with an onboard video, it is possible that your motherboard is not getting much power. The agp video card gets power from the motherboard. I suggest using a different power supply.

i assumed that you use device PS2 (Mouse & Keyboard), this rarely situation, but you haved installed and not more better, because the problem not with your system, but with your hardware, maybe you can change with USB Mouse Device and for Keyboard PS2 is better than USB Keyboard.

My keyboard will not work? I try to type and nothing happens everything else is working fine


Hello,

I would recommend making sure the keyboard is connected to the proper connection on the pc. If it is, check to make sure you have no POST error when the pc reboots. (Most times your pc will halt if no keyboard is detected.) If you get no error after the reboot and your connections are correct, you will need to get a new keyboard.

PS - Make sure you 9 pins in the connector of the keyboard connection. (Look at the end that plugs into the pc you can see the pins form a semi-circle.

Good Luck

New keyboard needs to entered into computer


Hello,

No for sure not.

Standard keyboards don't need drivers or things like that, they are auto recognized by system. Sometimes some fucntions like smart touches or additional keys may not works but keyboard itself must.

Are you sure you put it into correct PS2 port (the purple one, NOT the green one)?

Leave rate if I helped you, thanks!!

Cheers,
Mike

My keyboard stopped working


What kind of keyboard connector does it have?

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).

Hope this helps.

Reboot


make sure you unplug the computer, check to see if your memory is in right and in the right place. plug back in and restart. unpluging each time helps. the motherboard could be bad and or the power box, check the cpu chip to make sure it's in right, take out the modom and try it. sometimes a card might make it not come on, *********** board is not comeing on, look to see if there are any lighs that come on, and then go off, the momory could make it not work. I have had them go bad on me. and it makes the mother board shut off, and you dont get the moniter to work.
