Re: microsoft wireless multimedia keyboard 1.0A

I suppose you should reset the keyboard and mouse and maybe the access point itself. Try find small buttons on each devise and press them AT THE TIME. You may need somebody's help. Those buttos can by hidden under mouse and keyboard and should be on the top of the access point. This depend on the model, so please reffer to a manual.

Keyboard meaning


With the indulgence of the other posters.

The Acer Aspire AST180-UD400B or better known as Aspire T180 comes with a standard keyboard as shown below


Should this be what you have, the basic keys on the top left are:
Esc - Escape key. It is basically a shortcut to STOP or get out of a program sequence. Often this is as a shortcut key for the Stop button in many web browsers
F1 - usually launches a program's Help Guide
F2 - usually launches Rename command
F3 - usually launches Find or Search command
F4 - formerly a DOS for launching previous OS but currently used in conjunction with Alt that closes an active, open window and/or exits a program. With no active, open windows, it prompts you to exit.

If for some reason your keyboard is different, it is possible that the dealer could have bundled a different/after market keyboard such as those web or multimedia as shown below. The top left keys then would be either for web browser shortcut keys or multimedia shortcut keys or some other specialized functions.


Should this be the case, pls post back with the brand/model which may be determined by looking at the bottom or any of the markings at the top.

Hope this be of additional help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kindest regards.

How to hookup a microsoft keyboard to a hewlett packard desktop

You simply connect the receiver to one of the available USB ports. Ensure that there are fresh batteries installed in the keyboard. Once the receiver powers up, the OS in the PC should recognize and install it. The receiver may start up with a scanning sequence where the three lights blink in sequence. This means that the receiver is searching for the wireless device. On the back of the keyboard is a small recessed button. Press this button and the receiver should find the keyboard and stop the scan.

Open the Accessibility control panel and see if the sticky keys function is turned on, or if there is a hot key combination that turns it on. If you don't find anything pertinent in Accessibility, check the Keyboard and Mouse control panel for a similar function. (I must confess to having little experience with Win 7 to date, so some things may be in different places than I'm used to finding them.)

If you haven't already done so, check the optional updates on the Windows Update page at for an updated driver/control panel package for your keyboard.

The mouse and the keyboard (if it's wireless too) both have batteries. After changing a battery sometimes, you have to press the search button on the receiver and the search button underneath the mouse while holding them near each other so they can find each other again. please let me know if that dosen't help.

I was just about to write "I have the same problem", but i think i fixed it!!!!

background: I move my wireless keybd/mouse between my desktop and laptop units.... All was fine until a few days ago when some update completely disabled my desktop... I think the wireless began malfunctioning about the same time.

Just now, I pressed the ?reconnect button? on the front of the keybd/mouse receiver then pressed the connect buttons on the back of each device and PRESTO!! the keybrd works!!!

I just typed this entire message with the wireless keybd.

I hope this helps someone
