Have you set up the connection between the bluetooth and the keyboard? You have to tell the computer to look for a new bluetooth device and while the computer says looking for it, turn the keyboard on and keep it close to the computer, range is very limited during discovery, also know thew password to enter when the computer finds it and asks for it. Hope this helps
If there is no light on the Bluetooth keyboard it means there is a problem with it.
If the Bluetooth keyboard is not responding try to do the following:
1. Change batteries 2. Go to control panel 3. Click Bluetooth Icon 4. Delete the Bluetooth Keyboard 5. Click on Add new wireless device 6. Press the pairing device on the keyboard 7. Bluetooth keyboard will be detected 8. Follow the onscreen instructions
Hope this helps, Tried it several times and it works perfectly
This isn't a fun solution - the best thing I've come across is to hit both reset buttons (on the computer, and on the keyboard) until both are flashing - pull up your bluetooth
settings (from control panel (I've got mine shortcutted into my task
bar)), then disconnect the keyboard, and search for a new item - after
the computer finds a new keyboard, connect using a new pairing code.
While this might not be the best solution, it works for me, and I don't know of a better one, or quicker!
(That is the the Num Lock indicator, nothing to worry about.) If it is not working it is likely because USB keyboards can time some time to be recognized by windows, let the computer boot up with the keyboard connected and let sit for up to ten minutes.
Sometimes if other hardware is detected at the same time which requires drivers to be installed, windows will never proceed to installing your keyboard, however you cannot install the other drivers until you have a working keyboard. To solve this, you will need to use an older style PS/2 keyboard to get everything installed and working as they do not need to be detected.
Go to Control Panel and click on Sound.
Next click Bluetooth Devices.
Click Add button, lower left corner of the Bluetooth
Devices window. Insure batteries are installed.
Press the Connect Button on the Keyboard
(Usually located on the under side of your keyboard) this allows Windows to see
the keyboard so you can pair the keyboard to the computer.
On the computer choose My Device Is Set Up and Ready To
The keyboard should appear in the Add Bluetooth Device
Select your Keyboard and click Next.
When prompted, select Choose a Passkey For Me and
Windows will generate and display a Passkey. Type the Passkey specified on the Bluetooth
(do not use the keyboards keypad when typing the passkey)
No charters will appear on the monitor when typed, but if
you make a mistake, you can backspace. You must enter the Passkey within 30 seconds.
If you don’t enter the Passkey within 30 seconds, click Back
and click Nextagain.
Once the Passkey is entered, the Keyboard should be
connected to the computer. Finish and follow any on screen instructiond.
Hope this helps.Bud
