    Can you enter Bios using the keyboard?

    If your keyboard works in Bios, your keyboard is fine, focus on your OS and drivers.

The French keyboard got activated by accident and we can't figure out how to turn it off back to english


than select language and reboot.


look at the motherboard look for cmos reset, it is a jumper, you need to jump the connector or short the pin for a few seconds, by connecting the pin turn the machine on for few second the turning it off and removing the jumper, that will reset everything to manufactures settings. than just turn on computer and everything should work okay.
if you have problems than you will need to do a cold boot and push down the F10 key when start the computer to set up system again.
make sure save it and reboot and than everything will be okay
lets hope.

My cat sat on my keyboard and now it turned off. everything else is working .. help!

Probably just restart your computer and it will work again. You can check the wires and make sure they are still connected good. Check both ends.

Microsoft wireless laser keyboard 6000 v2.0 keyboard not working

You have to press the button on the receiver that is directly connected to the computer. While doing this, press the connect button both the mouse and the keyboard. I did this and now my keyboard is working, despite the battery indicator turning itself off a few seconds after I install it.

Hope this solves your problem.

Test your power supply for correct voltages. If they are all OK, then your motherboard is toast.

Mouse and keyboard not recognized on second computer

Solution for the mouse. I have 8 KVM's. Most of my computers work with the KVMs. On 1 inland KVM the logitect and Microsoft optical mice do not work on one computer (but work with the other computers). They both are USB. I hook them up with a USB to PS2 adapter. If I use a ps2 ball mouse connected to the KVM the mouse works. All the Mice work if I directly connect them. Since I do not want a ball mouse I got a Frisby optical PS2 mouse. It works with all the computers on the KVM's.

I do not have a solution for the Keyboard yet. 1 computer (ASUS MB) on my trendnet or belkin 4 postion KVM does not recognize the keyboard.

If the keyboard has a reciever, make sure you press the button on both. also you may try to un-plug the USB cord from the computer for the reciever, turn the computer off, plug the reciever back in and turn the computer on again. it should say " New hardware found" or something to that effect. if it asks you to install it , try that. the omputer may simply nee to recognize the keyboard.
