Question about Microsoft Multimedia Keyboard/Wireless intelliMouse Explorer K5000001M0300001

1 Answer

Keyboard is not responding to every letter I type

My keys do not always work or don't work quickly. I end up hitting a key, 3,4,5 times before it types or sometimes never types at all.

    did all that...did not help. What do I do when I see the keyboard in the control panel?

  • gottrains Feb 23, 2009

    It only affects certain keys, and it comes and goes. You have to press HARD to get a few keys to respond. They seem to be grouped vertically in sections of the keyboard when it happens. It is NOT because of dirt in the keyboard. If that were the case, it would not have problems for part of a day, then suddenly work fine for a day, then act up again.

    I have reinstalled the driver a couple times from the original disc, and verified they are the latest versions. It is not the batteries. I replaced them as well, even though the keyboard properties display said the battery level was good. I tried pressing the buttons to re-synch the receiver and the keyboard. Didn't make any difference. I changed USB ports. No change.

    I have this problem. You can resolve it by putting the keyboard right next to the reciever - I think it is unable to manage a range of more than 30cm! What a pile of junk!

Examine your keyboard for any build-up of dust, dirt, liquids or other particles that could be causing the keys to type the wrong characters. Allow any loose dirt to fall out by inverting and shaking the keyboard lightly.
Confirm that your keyboard is set to the English language. Go to your control panel and click on the "Regional and Language Options" icon. If the setting appears to be in a foreign language, change it to English/U.S.
Check if your number lock key is on. If so, depress the key to disengage it.
Run a character key test by using the Microsoft Keyboard Diagnostics (MSKEY) program. While in the MSKEY program, hit several keys to make certain that they are the same keys that are identified in the MSKEY window. To start MSKEY in Windows Vista, select "All Programs>>Accessories>>Run" from the Start menu. Type "mskey" in the box and depress the "OK" button. Start MSKEY In Windows XP by clicking on "Run" from the Start menu. Type "mskey" in the Open box, then hit "OK." Depress either "PS/2" or "USB" to apply it to your type of keyboard hookup. MSKEY software is only available with Microsoft IntelliType version 1.1 or later.
Remember to clean your keyboard regularly to keep it free of dust and debris.
Don't disassemble the keyboard because it may affect the validity of your manufacturer warranty!

Try plug it in to another USB port while the PC's switched on. It will force the computer to redect your mouse and keyboard and might fix the problem.

Another test would be on another PC or laptop. If it does the same thing then the keys are probably getting stuck down. Has it had anything spilt on it? Try a vacuum over the keys, you'll be suprised what gets caught under the keys (usally paperclips!!).

A key (which one?) changes the letters all keys type


You're hitting SHIFT and CTRL -- which changes the keyboard input method, i.e., for French keyboard, or for DVORAK keyboard, or for Scandinavian keyboard.

Access CONTROL PANEL, and use REGIONAL settings to "uninstall" all keyboard-layouts that you _never_ use.
