The plastic supports are broken on the back of my microsoft wireless keyboard. Rather than having to buy a new keyboard for 70.00 plus, can these be replaced?

Why would you spend $70 on microsoft hardware products?  To answer your question though, no they do not sell replacement plastic supports.

My personal recommendation would be to look at newegg.com - they have good prices, and fast shipping, and will free you from microshaft.

Generally, it's easier to just buy a new keyboard. If you really like your current one, have you tried superglue? Should work on keyboard plastics.

Otherwise, phone the manufacturer of your keyboard?

Wireless mouse and keyboard issues


If you have both sets of keyboard and mouse plugged in, turn off the computer and remove the old mouse and plug in the new mouse. Reboot and if necessary use the keyboard to login. Once windows is loaded let it detect the new mouse and then shut down again. Take out the old keyboard and reboot. You should now be able to use both new pieces without problems.

Moved my GATEWAY KR-0401 wireless keyboard & now won't work!


  1. Check and see if batteries are in keyboard and that they are still good and working.
  2. If the batteries are good and ready to go then make sure that the adapter for the wireless keyboard is plugged into the correct USB port in the back of your computer and that it's working.
  3. If none of the above works then what you'll need to do is go buy a wired keyboard and attach that to your computer and log into your account and find out what's going on with the wireless keyboard. Once you have figured out what is going on with your wireless keyboard then you can take the wired one back to the store and continue using the wireless keyboard. If I were you though I would keep the wired one around just in case.

F keys don't work on a micrpsoft keyboard 1000 wireless


Many of the wireless keyboards and Natural Keyboards from Microsoft have the F-Lock key.

Here is a description of what the F-Lock does from a 3rd party website (http://www.mvps.org/jtsang/flock.html)

F Lock Key

The F Lock key on the Microsoft Keyboards is a relatively new concept facility for Microsoft Keyboards. Introduced with the Office Keyboard and used in later keyboards, it essentially allows keys to do more than one operation. The F Lock key, depending on its state, will allow either a function key's "normal" operation or a new "enhanced" operation. The initial state of the F Lock key is "off", and in this state, the function keys use their "enhanced" operation.

The F Lock key is a hardware switch in the keyboard. Its state cannot be controlled programatically. Its default condition is "off". As a result, whenever the keyboard is reset, or loses power, the F Lock key will always be in an "off" state.

For some, this is not a desirable default; some people want "normal" function key operation.

I have a micro wireless keyboard, and I neeed a wireless mouse to match. Where can I buy one?


You could go to the place you bought the keyboard and see if they have a mouse too. If you want to use the same receiver though, the receiver (the part that plugs into the computer and communicates with the keyboard) you might consider purchasing a complete set, keyboard and mouse new. This has the advantage of using one USB connection on your computer. If you purchase a wireless mouse now and your receiver is not designed to support two devices, then you will use two USB connections.
