HP DC 7100 on XP Professional finds USB Mouse ok but will not find USb Keyboard, tried pulling drivers down still does not work

If we connect a USB Dongle with a Mouse and Keyboard, the mouse works but the keyboard will not, if we connect a wired USB keyboard the message comes up that it is recognized, the function buttons work i.e internet, email etc. but we cannot use the other keys. We also cannot see the device in the device manager.

    We have checked all the USB Ports with other devices and they are all working. However, it will not detect a wired USB keyboard we have tried it on another DC 7001 in the office and the keyboard is found in the Device Manager, it will also detect a wireless keyboard. We have now run out of ideas, any advice is welcome.

What keyboard are you useing ???

You maybe just need to install the driver or software for the keyboard.
Try to visit the manufactures site of the keyboard in search for software.
The driver is sometimes available at windows update.
Are there any faults in the device manager ???

Good luck

SOURCE: Trying to install windows and at the boot screen

I have seen this before, and the best answer I can offer you is some Motherboards are better than others when working with usb devices while no OS is in place. I actually tried using usb / to / ps/2 adapters and it still would not recognize the usb keyboard in a couple of instances. I had to get a ps2 keyboard for the installation of windows. After windows was installed I hooked up the usb keyboard and it worked fine. (just speaking from my own personal experience here)

Sorry I do not have a more technical answer for you but I'm almost 99.9 % sure this should work, providing there is no problem with the ps2 keyboard port on the Motherboard. I have never failed to install windows unless there was another hardware based issue of some kind, but never a problem with a known good ps2 keyboard.

Just double check everything is seated properly and try to get into the bios setup, if you cannot use the usb keyboard for this, you can try the usb / ps2 adapter, but if that doesn't work either then use a regular ps2 keyboard. That should work fine, then after setup is complete, windows is installed, then your usb keyboard should work fine.

Tip

USB devices not recognised or not working properly?


Try these steps to reinitialize your usb ports on your pc

1. Unplug ALL USB devices connected to the computer. If you are using a USB mouse and keyboard, temporarily use the older type PS/2 devices if you have them, if you don't then just leave them connected.

2. Hold down the windows key and press r

3. Type devmgmt.msc into the run menu and press ok

4. Click on the + sign next to the Universal Serial Bus Controllers

5. You might need another mouse to do this if you have a usb mouse.. I recommend you get a ps2 connector mouse which goes into the green round connector in the back of your pc.

6. Right click and uninstall first the usb root hubs. all of them then uninstall the rest of the devices you see under Universal serial bus controllers

7. Ones you have uninstalled everything you should see the Universal serial bus controllers there at all.

8. Now go ahead and restart your pc.

9. Ones you have restarted the pc your usb ports will reinstall in a moment stand by while it installs all of them. If you get warning messages click ok or continue installation.

10. Now go ahead and plug the usb devices back in. Install software if required, all usb devices if not faulty or broken should work now. Also note the error code if you get one?

This solution doesn't fix all usb problems so if you have a yellow ! mark there and device status reports a error code. Then it might not be a problem with your usb ports.

I have purchased a wireless mouse G-Shark Model GS-WKM200. It did not come with a mouse driver and my OS Window XP Professional did not detect the device thus my mouse will not work. Can you provide me...


Mice very seldom require any special device drivers.

Could you kindly write a comment stating what exactly happens when you plug in the receiver unit into your PC's USB socket? Does it install ok?

Perhaps it just needs connecting, by pressing a "connect" button on the receiver and then on the mouse?

By the way, GS-WKM200 seems to be a mouse + keyboard combo, does the keyboard work OK?

Please come back and rate the solution if helped or post a comment for further assistance.

A lot depends on where the keyboard and mouse are plugged in. I have seen in the past that the USB in the back works better than the front. Are these the original keyboard and mouse? If not, use the original until after Windows loads the desktop.

Hi.
Before starting, make sure the keyboard and mouse are ON and with batteries.

Whit the PC already ON:
* The first step is to plug in the USB Bluetooth adaptor.
* Once the Bluetooth adaptor is inserted, allow Windows to install the drivers.
* Once Windows gives it the OK, the USB dongle should have a light or even a button. (If you don’t see a button the "yellow" light is the button).
* Press the USB dongle button....this will tell the dongle to start looking for a Keyboard or mouse.
* On the underside of the mouse (and keyboard) should be a a small button.
* Press the button(s) for ~5 seconds, then release.. this tells teh keyboard (or mouse) to look for a dongle.

This should show a connection between the dongle and the keyboard (or mouse).


Or
With the PC Off:
* Just connect the dongle
* Do the button sequence as described above, unit the dongle light goes “solid” again.
* Start the PC and keyboard and mouse should work perfectly.


Cheers,
Ed
