Switch off Microsoft Sculpt ergonomic keyboard

I have purchased a Microsoft Sculpt erganomic keyboard and Mouse - I note that to conserve the batteries in the Mouse I can switch it off on the underside, but I cannot find a switch on the keyboard to do the same - is my only option to remove the USB from the computer to conserve that batteries in the keyboard whilst continuing to allow the computer to download large blocks of information?

SOURCE: BIOS Battery

After spending a couple of hours looking for the cmos battery I found it. It is located underneath the mouse keypad. To access it you must unscrew the front bottom of the laptop and be able to seperate to top and bottom portion of the laptop. On the right hand side you will see a pocket inside is the battery. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: USB wireless keyboard doesn't work

You need to unload the USB drivers for the keyboard and let windows find them again at restart. How does a novice do this? It's not hard. Go to Start, Control Panel, System, Hardware, Device Manager, Keyboards. Right click on this and select uninstall. Reboot your machine. If the drivers are not corrupted they should load fine, if they are corrupted then Windows will ask for the original operating system disk.

All this assumes that your keyboards are electronically working. This last holiday season alot of people brought in their Logitech - Target specials that no longer worked. Seems that if you insert the batteries backwards once the keyboard no longer operates (mouse OK). Never checked in to it too deep.

Good Luck

Spacebar on my Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 is sticking in the down position.


Take out the space bar button and change the position of the "sway bar" shown in http://www.paulstravelpictures.com/MS-Natural-Ergo-Keyboard-Sticky-Spacebar-Fix/index.html

There are 3 positions you can keep the sway bar - The middle positions worked for me and probably will work for you too.

I have a dell inspiron desktop that has no ps2 port, only USB. From my older computer I would like to use my microsoft ergonomic keyboard that has a ps2 plug. I bought a PS2 to USB adapter but when I...


Hello,

The adapter you purchased is for use with a PS/2 mouse only. The only keyboard adapters will have keyboard and mouse in a "Y" adapter. The single adapters will not work for keyboards because they do not have the conversion electronics to go from PS/2 to USB, mice can work on either one. Do a google search for "usb to PS2 dual port adapter" you can get them for around $2 plus shipping.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.
