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.

How to connect a microsoft mouse to a microsoft 1447 dongle


The thw wireless mouse is paired from fabric wirh USB dongle for same mouse. You can't connect a wireless keyboard to it because they are no different frequency. Actually it's hightly improbable that you even could connect the USB dongle of a mouse with another different mouse. Explanations is logical: presumeyou are in a big office whate another 1 users have wireless keyboards or "mice". Now, imaginge the mess if the dongle of your keyboard should control the mouse of another 9 usrs.
Now, it's competely different with bloetooth keyboards and"mice"

Why is it my touch screen workks, but my fold out keyboard os locked and buttons are not working. the letter buttons. help please.


the touch screen is not connected the same as your keyboard the screen is direct hardware connected and youre keyboard and mouse are connected as bluetooth devices. you shoud have what is reffered to as a .dongle, which plugs into any comuter usb port, and talks to the keyboard and mouse. first check or replace the batteries inn both the mouse and the keyboard, then make to turn on the switch on the backside of the keyborad. Then push the button,connect, on the back of the dongle, and finally push the connect button on the bottomside of the mouse.The mouse and dongle should flash if they are talking to each other.

If you have an old keyboard and mouse that plug directly into the computer then they are hard wired directly to the motherboard by sockets. these are not repairable. but first go to start-botom left corner and click on the icon and go to control panel and select keyboard and rest all defaults such as keyboard language, rebbot and try again...my keyboard after installing defaults to french canada and i have to change to us otherwise my question mark becomes a french e. I hope this helps

If the power cells are new, both the keyboard and mouse are powered correctly (Battery I assume are positioned correctly). If Neither one operates, then check the small dongle that fits into the USB port. It may have been loosened, and if so just pull it from the port and reinsert it in another port. If still no connection, then the dongle may have burned out. The problem: Once a dongle is spent, the entire set is useless as they operated on an audio signal (Frequency) set for that mouse/keyboard. No replacements.

Can you replace just the keyboard and keep the same mouse


If they're of the same model, if they are USB mouse and keyboard = YES

>If mouse and keyboard are wireless you need to replace both since they're sold as set and they both connect through the same Bluetooth dongle then the mouse might work but the keyboard won't.

Wireless keyboard & mouse will not connect


Would try going into the device manager in the control panel and make sure that the usb dongle is being identified correctly by windows. Also, would unplug any other usb devices so that they are not interfering.

Wireless keyboard & mouse will not connect


Then your problem is most likely driver-related. The chances are nill that both mouse AND keyboard are defective. Looks like it is down to one of two scenarios. Either the driver is incorrect or corrupt, or the dongle itself is malfunctioning. The driver would be first choice since it would be a free fix to rule out.

try uninstalling the driver first, then reboot. Next go to mfg website for the keyboard/mouse/dongle and download a fresh driver. Then reboot. Note that preferably, the correct protocol would be to install the driver first, before plugging in the dongle. Hope this helps. One question I can think of regarding the dongle is whether or not the dongle lights up when plugged in - some do. If yours is supposed to but does not, it could be the dongle itself. The bottom line now is between the dongle and a driver really. I'd be willing to bet the mouse and keyboard are just fine they just can't interface because the dongle is the gateway and you know the rest...good luck.

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

try reinstalling the drivers. initially though, press the connect button on the usb dongle. then press the connect button on the mouse and then on the keyboard. if anything this should let you connect the mouse to let you install the drivers. the drivers will then automatically install.

Connecting wireless keyboard for L3600


There is a button on the bluetooth dongle that needs pressing to get the mouse & keyboard operating, I think I got them to work when the little long blue light on the dongle (there is one) it flashes for a brief time when pressed. I think if the mouse or keyboard button is pressed while its flashing it picks them up. Good luck, it was very tedious, I agree.
