Question about Micro Innovations Internet Pro Keyboard KB565BL

2 Answers

Not responding No matter what I do this keyboard will NOT work! I am using it with a Dell Laptop. It has Windows 2000. I have tried installing it with the c.d, and it is installed successfully. But, when I reboot the computer (as it says to do), the keyboard is still unresponsive. I just bought it, and it can't be broken already! Fast help is MUCH appreciated! Thanks!

Re: Not responding

I believe it's their keyboards, not your computer, they suck! I have one that is even worse, a Labtec, on which you have to make an extra effort just to be sure you type a letter. that really wears your hands out, and fast. people on instant messengers often wonder what I'm even saying because of letters missing. I was looking for something more easy to type on, and I made the mistake of buying this model yesterday. I followed the instructions to install it word for word not once but numerous times, and it never worked, just kept bringing up the add new hardware wizard (which I despise the sight of when trying to install anything). mainly I hate it because it asks you if you want to connect to Windows Update to search for software, when Windows most likely doesn't have the software you need, so what sense does that make? I even downloaded the drivers from their website, and that didn't make a difference. fortunately, it was only $20, and I kept the receipt. I wrote their technical support an email, and if nothing they suggest helps, it's going back to the store for a keyboard that will actually type! after all, that is its main function right? right.... with the exception of this particular brand name.

My laptop touchpad button not working

most likely, it already needs a replacement, but do try to uninstall and reinstall your touchpad driver and make sure your touchpad settings are correctly configured. you can also try to use the drivers and utilities CD from dell to run a test on the touchpad to see if they will respond to determine if it is a hardware level

Key board of my laptop does not work. model lat d630.

if none of the keys respond and this just recently started, try turning off the laptop, then take out the battery and AC adapter. Hold the power button for about 10 seconds which discharges any power left. Connect the battery and AC adapter, restart the computer in Safe Mode and test the keyboard. If it does not work, try going to the Device Manager and uninstall the existing driver for the keyboard and let the OS detect it again. If this does not work, Dell has a utility to run a diagnostics on its component like the keyboard. You can look for a Utilities CD that came with your laptop and boot from it, then run the Customize Test option and look for the keyboard test. This will help you check if the keyboard is worklng.

My laptop touchpad is not working dell inspiron n5010

you will have to reinstall the drivers and the sofware in your Dell. I think since the touch pad is not working if you use the cursor keys and proceed to the control panel and try to restore the laptop, then if this will reset to an earlier date, then it will solve the issue.
try this out and check to reinstall drivers. hope this helps. Good day

Keyboard stopped working after a Windows update yesterday at 4:28 PM. External USB keyboard now attached. No BIOS keyboard settings found. Dell Studio Laptop.All keyboard drivers are up to date. Help????

First thing I would do is get the dell diagnostics disc (hold f12 at start up) and run that, while trying to use the keyboard. (move the arrow keys around and see if they work. you might have to unhook the usb keyboard first) if the keyboard works in the diagnostics area, then its not a hardware issue. (kbd failure would mean no keys worked, or, only some worked sometimes.) You would then need to go into windows device manager and try rolling back the keyboard drivers. If you have full kbd functions outside windows, then you have a windows driver issue. try rolling back, or removing the drivers.

Dell Inspiron E1405 Keyboard and touchpad stop responding when bootup gets to Windows password screen. Any ideas as to why? Thanks in advance.

could be a problem with drivers. Try to start windows in safemode. To start in safemode keep pressing F8 imediattly after the laptops starts and will show up a screen, choose safe mode. If in safemode works use system resotre and restore to an earlier time when worked.
