To make this boaring story shorter...
The root of my issue was not a driver, as in the Windows environment, it understands these basic functions. The issue was the WINDOWS XP was not working as expected. There is a service that runs on XP to handle this type of Human Interface Device (HID). That service was FAILING in the Windows service list. It was apparent as in the service list it was listed as AUTOMATIC but was not RUNNING.
Now if that service is erroring (as mine was) there is a completely different issue, but that is the source of the problem.
My resolution to that issue was found on the Internet much more easily...
1. "Start", then "Run"
2. Type "regedit" without the quotes, click "OK"
3. Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\HidServ\Paramet¬ers
4. In the right pane, right-click in the blank area and select "New" and "Expandable String Value"
5. Name the value "ServiceDll" without the quotes. Note: case sensitive without quotes
6. Double-click the new entry and enter "%SystemRoot%\System32\hidserv.dll¬ " without quotes as its value
7. Click OK, and close the registry window
Once the HID service is running normally, WOW, all of the buttons worked without a driver or any other thing needed. Volume Knob and everything.



Or just save this as a reg file example: Sk-8135 Fix.reg

I did have to reboot the computer before the fix worked.


Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\HidServ\Parameters]
"ServiceDll"=hex(2):25,00,53,00,79,00,73,00,74,00,65,00,6d,00,52,00,6f,00,6f,\
00,74,00,25,00,5c,00,53,00,79,00,73,00,74,00,65,00,6d,00,33,00,32,00,5c,00,\
68,00,69,00,64,00,73,00,65,00,72,00,76,00,2e,00,64,00,6c,00,6c,00,00,00

well how can it be new? (new old stock you meant)
or new to you?
its at least 10 years old.. an old Desk top drive.

this is all there is now, they are deleting this section now.
Questions of the day.?
why run a 3year old dead,OS XP?
its dead, that means when you need drivers its going to be hard to impossible to find or will by found but will be full of VIRUS.
upgrade to w7. (buy a retail license for it and use it)
(ask how)
no system stated, just a DVD #
cant help much with that.
To make DVD and USB work right on XP it needs SP3.
service pack 3, but finding it can be hard.
no stores sell it (brick) no disks marked XP with SP3 now.

plug it in to a new machine, say w10 laptop or desktop
if it plugs and plays that means windows still supports it.
and if true may work with W7 too.
then try it on w7? learn where it can work and where not.
and save all this grief.

When i plug it into the USB it doesnt work, and doesnt light up, however when i plug it into another computer it works perfectly


Try plugging another USB device into the same USB port on your computer. If that device doesn't work either, there may be a problem with that USB port. Try another USB port, or install a new card with additional USB ports. Bear in mind that when you plug in a USB device, the computer can take several minutes to install the drivers for it.

GE Wireless "Malfunction" "Unknown Device"


Does the mouse and/or keyboard have a "connect" button on the bottom of either? Try restarting your PC, then, if you have installed new batteries, and the mouse/keyboard is still not connected, try the "Connect" button if any.

Unknown device.


First what you need to do is go to the coby website and download the driver for your player and then follow these instrustion to force install the driver:
1. Look for the icon named "Computer" or "My Computer" and right click on it and select properties, this will open a window named "System Properties".
2. In the system properties windows click on the tab named "Hardware", and Select "Device Manager".
3. On this window you will see all the devices installed on your computer, look for the device not working properly (printer, dvd rom, keyboard, camera, mp3 player, etc), if there is a bigger problem, more likely you will see a cross by it, or an alert stating there is an issue with it.
4. Right click on the device you where having problems with and select uninstall, it will give you a confirmation, press OK
5. Once the device disappeared from the list, click on the menu bar icon that looks like a computer with a magnifying glass this will cause for the system to scan for any devices not registered and will force the re installation of the device.

Trying to install windows and at the boot screen have my keyboard and mouse plugged in windows doesnt see it.. I tried the USB keyboard and nothing I just recently replaced the MOBO using anti-static wrist...


I have seen this before, and the best answer I can offer you is some Motherboards are better than others when working with usb devices while no OS is in place. I actually tried using usb / to / ps/2 adapters and it still would not recognize the usb keyboard in a couple of instances. I had to get a ps2 keyboard for the installation of windows. After windows was installed I hooked up the usb keyboard and it worked fine. (just speaking from my own personal experience here)

Sorry I do not have a more technical answer for you but I'm almost 99.9 % sure this should work, providing there is no problem with the ps2 keyboard port on the Motherboard. I have never failed to install windows unless there was another hardware based issue of some kind, but never a problem with a known good ps2 keyboard.

Just double check everything is seated properly and try to get into the bios setup, if you cannot use the usb keyboard for this, you can try the usb / ps2 adapter, but if that doesn't work either then use a regular ps2 keyboard. That should work fine, then after setup is complete, windows is installed, then your usb keyboard should work fine.

Keyboard and mouse not working when windows starts


Hi there.
While you are in the operating system, unplug both the USB devices, then plug them back in, let windows recognize the new hardware and install it for you, this can take a couple of minutes, once it says hardware is installed and ready to use reboot the PC and see if you can use the keyboard and mouse while in the OS.
please post back with any more problems

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!!

My wireless keyboard stopped working it is a A4tech RFKB-21


The first thing you should try is unplugging the wireless adapter and plugging it back in. If that doesn't work, try uninstalling the wireless driver (from the device manager. You can find the device manager in the control panel), unplugging the keyboard first of course. After the driver has been installed, plug the keyboard back in and allow the windows 'found new hardware' to install the driver again. The 'found new hardware' dialog is automatic, so all you have to do is plug the keyboard in.

If windows cant find the driver, or has a problem for any reason, you can find your driver at:

http://www.findmysoft.com/drivers/A4tech-RFKB-5-Wireless-Keyboard-driver.html

and install it manually (it installs like any other software).

If your keyboard is still not working, check for any manual locks that might prevent the keyboard from being used normally. Look for an unrecognized key, a switch, or an LED light that might have a picture of a lock. Unfortunately, I can't pull up any pictures of your keyboard, so I don't know if it has one or not.

You might also want to try another usb device (a flash drive or another usb keyboard, if you have one) to make sure that the usb ports aren't the culprits.

I hope this helps, and good luck!
