Slow or none response time for HP Wireless Keyboard
I have had my wireless keyboard for more than 3 months now, and yesterday and today the problem occured while i was in the middle of a typing session. The keyboard was responding fine until without warning it loses response. And note that the mouse which came with the keyboard was and still is, working fine. I replaced the batteries; that didn't work. I unconnected the mouse and keyboard, and then connected them again; that didn't work either. I thought i had a bad keyboard, but this morning the keyboard worked fine; i even played video games for an hour with no problems. I was in the middle of finishing typing a document when it goes dead again. I followed the same drill as yesterday, only to get a very slow response from the keyboard. i would type and seconds later some of the letters i typed appear. Am i the only one with this? If someone has tips or answers, please help me.

1 Follow the steps mentiond below:
•2 Leave your current wired keyboard plugged into the computer. Many computers will cease to function if their keyboard is removed.
•3 Make sure that the computer is on and is functioning properly.
•4 Plug the USB wireless adapter of the wireless keyboard into a USB port on your computer. If you don't have a USB port, then your computer is probably too old and likely won't support a wireless keyboard.
•5 Make sure that there are batteries in your wireless keyboard. Oftentimes, the consumer is responsible for putting the batteries in, and they don't come with the keyboard when it's purchased.
•6 Turn the power on for your wireless keyboard. The method of doing this varies depending on the model you've purchased, but the power switch/button is generally located on the bottom of the wireless keyboard.
•7 Wait for the keyboard to download it's driver software. If you don't have a connection to the Internet, use the software that was included with your wireless keyboard to install the driver manually.
•8 Use the wireless keyboard exactly as you would a wired keyboard.
Its not the problem with the keyboard or the mouse it seems that you need the full system scan.. of if you have wired keyboard and mouse connect them to the computer and check using them with the same browsers ... which will determine where the problem is ?
if the wireless keyboard and mouse are working fine then need to update the drivers or there is some problem Hack / Virus scan (not sure) but don't worry it could be a magnetic effect of speakers or monitor you have to check them out
These keyboards only seem to work with a certain type of battery. I found the best results with a plain ALKALINE battery. I'm specifically using an Energizer, but I would guess most any Alkaline would work.
My original battery went dead after 6 months, and I replaced with a rechargeable Nickel-metal hydride (NiMh). My keyboard started behaving sluggish less than 24 hours later. I thought there was no way it was the battery, because these are the batteries that last forever in a digital camera (when Alkaline's get drained in about 1 hour in a digital camera). I tried ever fix possible, even blaming it on a new wireless router I had put in. I changed the router's wireless channels, removed cordless phones, and about everything else.
Finally I put another set of rechargeable batteries in, and everything worked great for about another 24 hours. I then decided to go back to a plain Alkaline battery, and all has been well for over a week now.
I'm sure that's not the issue for everyone, but maybe it will help some. So many of the batteries today are made for digital devices, and we had to look specifically for the Alkaline, making sure not to get a NiMh or Lithium Ion battery.
It can be a couple of things. 1. Try replacing the keyboard & mouse's batteries with fresh batteries. 2. Try moving the wireless receiver closer to the keyboard. 3. Make sure the receiver is not located too close to other electronics like a tv or dvd player. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer.
