But I tried pressing connect with the keyboard and the flask drive but it still doesn't work =?Please help, my email is champion_ruler2@yahoo.com

    That's not it. THanks though. It's a HP computer and the keyboard came with it.



    I'm just curious if the keyboard and mouse are malfunctioning because it just suddenly stopped.

    I have no idea what to say to get more help either..

I take it your keyboard was OK until one day it stopped working. Here is what you should try before you mess around with anything else: Do a system restore. You don't say what operating system you have, but you should be able to find it under All Programs>Accessories>system tools>system restore. Restore your computer to an earlier time--like back to when your keyboard was working. Sounds like you installed something that messed your system up!

    If everything was working and a system restore does not wrok, not much goes wrong with keyboards and mice (unless you do something like put them in a dishwasher), so I would suspect a hardware issue that points to the motherboard.

    A question, though--if you have a restore disk (or any other Windows system disk) and boot the computer with it, can you use the keyboard or mouse? If so, it's Windows. If not, it's the hardware.

My Key Board is Not Working


The swapping process you have used already have clearly shown that your keyboard is faulty. It may be that a key is pressed down permanently / faulty and this blocks the signalling - check all the keys carefully to ensure none is depressed. Or one of the Connector pins (the part that goes into the computer) is bent - you may need to check and use a tool to straighten it.
But it is good to know that Keyboards are cheap to replace. If the above did not help, you can buy another keyboard for as low as £5 and then continue enjoying your computer.

F keys don't work on reboot. Work on Power on boot.


Turn your computer off.
Temporarily replace your keyboard/mouse with "generic" units.
Turn your computer on.
Check that the F-keys work.
Restart.
Now, do the F-keys work correctly?
Or, do you still get "keyboard failure"?

I got a used MX3200, got the mouse working right off, but no keyboard. This solved my problem: with the wireless mouse working took out the keyboard batteries, pressed connect button on the receiver, replaced the keyboard batteries, pressed connect button on the keyboard. Voila!

Hi I would sagest that you try reinstalling the drivers from the CD that came with your keyboard if this does not work try disconnecting your keyboard and starting up your PC and after the PC bleeps re plug your key board in and see if this woks failing all that replace the hardware with new and make sure you have set a restore point to go back to if any future problems occur Working for a better computer Paddy

Keyboard won't work


I have had problems similar to this B4, it seems that when ya use a Wifi Key board some software "locks out" any other keyboards via the PS/2 interface.. I got a work around by using a USB Adapter and plugged my "Other" keyboard into a USB slot & could then use both, but not some features of it. So then later, I then got a "Real" USB keyboard and was able to use all the "Features" it had.
