Keyboard not found

I have an emachine. The keyboard got unplugged. I plugged it back in and rebooted. I get the keyboard not found message. I connected another keyboard and got the same message. My computer requires a password to unlock it. Any suggestions? Would a wireless keyboard work?

    I double checked that and the mouse is connected to the correct connector. It works just fine. I disconnected the printer, reconnected it, and rebooted numerous times and got the same message - keyboard not found.

Unlock keyboard


Well you may have a bigger problem than a locked keyboard. If you tried to shut down all your programs and reboot, and if you could reboot as someone else to see if it it a locked keyboard. By rebooting the keyboard should auto unlock however if your using a wireless keyboard (check your batteries), and finally on this machine there is a problem with using USB keyboards, try to unplug the USB keyboard then waiting 10 seconds, then plug it into a different USB port, this will reset the keyboard in some cases, but it may be necessary for you to reload the keyboard driver. Okay you say how do you do that without the keyboard? Well if your mouse is working go to START>PROGRAMS>ACCESSORIES>ACCESSIBILITY>ON-SCREEN KEYBOARD and use your mouse to reload the USB keyboard driver and see if that fixes your problem.
Good luck!

Keyboard wont print screen


Try unplugging your keyboard, restarting your computer and then plugging the keyboard back in.
If there is no change, try updating the keyboard driver by going to "Start" and searching for "Device Manager". Find your keyboard on the list of devices under the "Keyboards" section.
Right click on it and click "Properties" then "Driver" and then "Update Driver"

Keyboard stopped working


http://www.ascendtech.us/emachines-kb-0705-ps-2-keyboard-black_i_kbdemkb0705bps2.aspx

Things I see here.
1) The second Keyboard you plugged wasn't any good either.

2) The PS/2 port for your keyboard on your motherboard, isn't any good anymore.
Computer off, plug it into the Mouse PS/2 port, and use a USB mouse.
BIOS will reset the I/O address for that PS/2 port, and set it for the Keyboard, when the computer is turned back on.

You may have to;
A) Turn the computer off
B) Unplug from power.

C) Press the Power On button in, and hold it in for a count of 10 seconds. Let go of the Power On button. Do this same procedure two more times.

What you are doing is draining residual power, clearing CMOS Error Codes, and resetting BIOS back to the factory default settings.

Keyboard plugged in, USB mouse plugged in, plug the computer back into power. WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.

Still no?
Motherboard replacement.

You didn't unplug the old Keyboard, WITH the computer on, and plug the new Keyboard in, did you? It isn't a hot-swap device. The computer must be off when unplugging a mouse, or keyboard.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

My keyboard is locked how do i unlock it?


Maybe you keyboard is bad or your keyboard has been hijacked by a virus.

Make sure you keyboard is plugged in good on the back of the computer. If the end of your keyboard that plugs into the computer is Round and it plugs into the green port on the back of the computer you have a PS2 (serial) type of keyboard and you cannot unplug it and expect it to work if windows has already booted up. If you remove this type of keyboard connection, you have to Reboot your machine otherwise the keyboard is locked.

If the end of your keyboard that plugs into the computer is Flat, then you have a USB type of keyboard that goes into the computer's USB Port. This type of keyboard is Plug and Play so you don't have to reboot if you remove it. If you have this type maybe the USB Port you plugged it into does not work, so try plugging into another USB Port.

Try booting in Safe Mode and see if the keyboard performs.
Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn itback on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFEMODE. Take the Safe Mode option and let it boot up. Safe Mode will lookdifferent to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this isnormal.

My keyboard will not work


Hi,

Keyboard Is Dirty:

Keyboards should be cleaned with "spray-n-wipe" cleaner and a cloth or tissue on a monthly basis. Ensure that computer is not powered up while cleaning the keyboard. Compressed air can also be used to clean between the keyboard keys. Another tip: clean the keys with a cotton swab dipped in alcohol.

"Keyboard Not Found" Message:

Your keyboard is not plugged into the computer securely. Unplug it and plug it back in and the problem should go away. If this doesn't work, follow procedure: "Computer isn't taking inputs from keyboard" (below).

Key Is Stuck:

1. If a key does not work or is stuck in the down position, you may try to remove it with a CPU "chip puller" tool. These simple "L" shaped tools are great at pulling out keys. Once you've pulled out the stuck key, you can try to stretch the spring to "reanimate" its action.

Computer Isn't Taking Inputs From Keyboard

1. Is keyboard connected to computer? Ensure that the keyboard is plugged into the keyboard jack and not into the mouse jack. If the keyboard was unplugged, plug it back in and reboot the computer.

2. If the keyboard still doesn't work on boot-up, power down the computer and try to borrow a friend's known-good keyboard for troubleshooting. Plug the new keyboard up and boot up the computer. If the new keyboard works, the old keyboard is bad and needs to be replaced.

3. If the known-good keyboard doesn't work, check your BIOS to make sure it sees the keyboard. It should say, "installed." If the BIOS recognizes the keyboard, then you probably have a bad keyboard port.

I Plugged Keyboard Into Mouse Port

1. Many mice and keyboards today use a PS/2 connector
. If you plugged your keyboard into the mouse port (or viceversa), follow steps 2 and 3.

2. Shut down the computer and plug the keyboard into the keyboard port. The keyboard port is usually marked with a "keyboard" symbol. Plug the mouse into the mouse port (usually marked with a mouse symbol).

3. Reboot the computer; the keyboard should work now. If keyboard doesn't work, check your BIOS to make sure the BIOS recognizes the keyboard. You should see the words, "installed" or "enabled" under the keyboard.

4. If the BIOS recognizes the keyboard but it still doesn't work, you may have a bad keyboard port.

I Spilled a drink on my keyboard!

1. If you spill any liquid in the keyboard, turn it upside down ASAP. Drain all the water out of the keyboard, shaking it if necessary. If you've spilled water into the keyboard, just let it dry. You may use a hair dryer to dry out area under the keys (remember, too much heat and you could damage the electrical components).

2. If you've spilled a soda into the keyboard, completely rinse it in warm water. No soap please! You may use a hair dryer at this point or just let it dry for 2 days. Ensure the keyboard is perfectly DRY before you attempt to use it again. Don't plug a wet keyboard into electrical equipment. Think safety.

5. If the keyboard still doesn't work, replace the keyboard.

PC keyboard is requiring 5 second pause between double strokes


Seems a driver issue to me.
İf you are using windows operation system than go "my computer" rigt click>properties>Hardware tab.
Click on the "device manager" find the "Keyboards" click on this and you will see the installed keyboard. Uninstall it and reboot the computer. Windows will be register it again with fresh drivers when your operation system is loaded during restart.

PS. If you keyboard has USB connection, plug it off before shut down and plug it on after your system is fully loaded. Wait for the informative pop up messages sayin " new hardware found" etc. You can use it after "your hardware installed and ready for use" message displayed.

Keyboard not found


Is it a ps/2 or a USB keyboard? If its a USB keyboard it may be that the drivers won't load until you actually log into windows. Only fix is to boot with a ps/2 keyboard.

If its a ps/2 keyboard then you are probably plugging it into the mouse port. doublecheck your locations.

eMachine's customer service was very good last I had occasion to use it. The keyboard that came with a system had a QWRRTY keyboard (E was missing) and I had the new one by 2nd day air with no return needed.

I recommend giving them a shot first since this issue may even be known to them.

I found Cnet's closing paragraph on your machine helpful too:

"We also like, as always, the BigFix application, which provides you with direct support help from Gateway, eMachines' parent company (which is, in turn, owned by Acer).
For the rest of this system's support, eMachines offers one year of parts and labor coverage, as well as 24-7 toll-free phone support. Online you get system-specific support resources, as well, along the lines of driver downloads, live chat, and other features. Because each eMachines is a fixed configuration, any support tech you come across should know exactly what kind of hardware you have, at least out of the box."
