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!

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.

Keyboard is messed up


Try looking here to see if any of the keys are set wrong.
Normal 0 If you are then go to Control Panel.
1. Click on PRINTERS.
2. When the Printer Properties come up, CLICK on KEY SETTINGS.
3. Then set up the keys by selecting the key to be setup.
Hope this helps. Bud
