Re: Dell Wireless Keyboard
THE KB BOARD NEEDS TO BE SERVICED, BY REMOVING THE SCREWS OR SNAP CLIPS THAT HOLD THE KB TOGETHER, CLEAN THE CURCIUT BOARD OR PLASTIC FILM WITH SOME ACOLAHOL AND LENT FREE TOWEL,
USE A CAN OF COMPRESSED AIR TO REMOVE THE DIRT FROM THE KEY SWITCHS.
PUT IT BACK TOGETHER,
GO INGO CONTROL PANEL OPEN DEVICE MANAGER, GO DOWN TO KEYBOARD AND CHECK FOR ANY TYPE OF UPDATES OR AND CHANGES TO THE PROGRAM.
IF YOU CAN FIND THE KEYBOARD TEST THAN TEST THE KEYBOARD TO MAKE SURE ALL KEYS ARE WORKING PROPERLY.

It says that the drivers for your keyboard is not installed... you need to Install the drivers that came along with the Keyboard... If it doesnt comes with a cd search in dell site and download the drivers...
This happens because, the default drivers for keyboard will be present in the database of windows, so you wont be facing any issues in using the keys... But for using the special keys, u need to have drivers...
My advice would be to put new batteries in the keyboard and see if that works, failing that, pick up a wired keyboard and mouse to log in to your system then re-connect the wireless set to re-install the drivers.
If u have your windows xp disc, go to start-run- and type sfc /SCANNOW. It will screen your computer for missing or damaged files, registry and etc... It has fixed about every problem I've have. This is way better than re-installing windows, u lose nothing.
Usually this happens due to the distance between the keyboard and the computer/receiver (if you have one). It could also happen due to interference from another wireless device like a cordless phone. Try reducing the distance, remove any source of signal interference and check.
If this doesn't work and the issue remains with some specific keys, it could be a hardware problem. To be sure, try another wireless keyboard if you can. If it works, its a hardware issue for sure.
This model keyboard has an internal USB hub and Windows only sees the hub when booting. The solution is to get a generic USB keyboard and boot into Windows. Once Windows has loaded the HID drivers for the sk-8115 keyboard then this Dell keyboard will work from then on.
GOt the same keyboard and trying it right now, and must say feel kind of weird and I'm a good typer. Sometimes keys won't work, then you have to press them several times and then they work and it's like it never was a problem; this looks to me like a reception/processing problem, not mechanical in the keys themselves. Mouse is OK so far, just don't like the feel of the two side buttons (back and forth) on the left, because they feel wobbly and screechy and cheap, not comfortable.
Mouse roller is good, and keys on the board have a soft sound when you type, both things that I like. The keys are like notebook keys. And the board is nice and small and sleek, and takes up a lot less space than the wireless logitech combo I also have.
