How do I get my samsung VG-KBD2000 to work on mt Samsung UE37 D6500?


the LED does not support a keyboard unless connected through a computer, for which the LED will have to be used as an external monitor and should have DVI ports to connect video cable.

With the limited info that you provided, it seems like the motherboard is not functioning. When you turn the computer on, does anything happen in the box?

Computer not recognizing usb connected nav device


Turn off CPU, Unplug Power cable, And all usb devices, let it sit for about 20mins. Plug it all back in. Turn on the CPU! Also make sure if your device requires "DRIVERS" or if you have a CD download and install that before anything.

Have an IBM ThinkPad T30 2366 Notebook. Windows boots up. I do the normal Ctrl-Alt-Del and then presented with Windows login screen. My problem is that 1 letter on each row of the keyboard does not work...


Hi there.
Keyboards tend to do this from time to time, and is quite common.
You can use a USB keyboard to access your PC until you have a replacement keyboard for the laptop.
If the USB keyboard is not recognized hit F2 (on start up), enter the bios and set it to defaults, save the changes and exit, the computer will restart and you should be able to use a USB keyboard to access your account.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Problem with KVM switch and Vista


Your problem has nothing to do with the Operating System (Vista), it has something to do with the brand of your computer. I have similar problem before, I have Vista (Dell), but the time I connected another Vista (Sony Vaio), everything worked correctly.

This is what you need to do:

1. You have to make sure that you are using a standard USB keyboard and mouse.

2. Connect first the keyboard and mouse directly to the Vista computer to see if the USB ports of your computer are working properly.

3. You may power cycle the KVM switch by disconnecting it from the computers (including the keyboard and mouse) and leave it disconnected for 2 minutes.

4. Reconnect everything after two minutes and then reboot the computers.

5. Try using different USB keyboard if problem exist after power cycling the KVM switch.
