Wireless keyboards problems..HP PC

Hi My pc wireless keyboard(HP) seems to have a 'mind' of its own. On power up it takes ages before I can use the keyboards and often..erractic usage..then it could be 20min or sometimes more before its OK.

The mouse which share the same wireless controls have no problems.

Any ideas what could be happenings..checking the control panel and keyboards it says its working properly.

Re: wireless keyboards problems..HP PC

Hey there saltybone!
Here's a few ideas for you:
1-Press the reset button on the bottom of the keyboard, if it has one.
2-Press the reset button on the "control module" , "transceiver"or whatever the thing that plugs into the back of your computer is called.
3-Change the batteries in the keyboard. Then reset them, again.
4-Don't disregard the fact that the keyboard may have gone bad.

Hp touchsmart 300

From the User Guide at...

The wireless keyboard and mouse are pre-synchronized, for your convenience, to work with your

HP TouchSmart PC. The keyboard and mouse should work immediately after you pull the battery tabs to

activate the preinstalled batteries, and then turn on the mouse (A).

You may need to manually synchronize the wireless keyboard or mouse if they are not functioning.

To synchronize them:

Make sure the keyboard and mouse are next to the HP TouchSmart PC, within 30 cm (1 foot) and

away from interference from other devices.

Keyboard: Press the Connect button on the bottom of the keyboard (B) for five seconds. The blue

activity LED on the wireless receiver illuminates when the synchronization command has been received

and turns off when synchronization is complete.

Mouse: Press the Connect button on the bottom of the mouse (C) for five seconds. The blue activity

LED on the wireless receiver illuminates when the synchronization command has been received and

turns off when synchronization is complete.

If this does not work, remove and then re-insert the wireless keyboard and mouse receiver from the back of
the computer and then synchronize the keyboard and mouse again.

HP DC7700 small form factor. Keyboard and mouse not working while booting and unable to login. Please help me out. Thanks, James

Are the Keyboard and Mouse USB or Wireless USB. Meaning those Wireless keyboards and mice that you can get and from Microsoft or Logitech. Make sure you have batteries replaced or recharged for your keyboard and mouse. Then see if this solved the problem.

My wireless keyboard seems to be selective about which letters to acknowledge whenI type any faster than a two year old despite new batteries It is the one that came with the hp iq 775 touch screen desktop...

Wireless keyboards do have some delay, especially when the batteries are low, are you sure the batteries have a charge? Sometimes even new batteries are dead or very weak.

Some wireless keyboards only have a range of a few feet, but, moving it closer kinda defeats the purpose of having one in the first place.

Have you tried to go to (classic view): start>settings>control panel>keyboards... to make adjustments?

USB ports all seem troublesome

You cannot use wireless keyboard or USB keyboard in setting up the computer BIOS, what you need is a PS2 keyboard, if your motherboard supported USB booting, in Boot section of your BIOS change the Boot Priority to USB Generic Device, after you change the boot priority change the First Boot to Removable Device or USB Generic Device.. and after that save your configuration and restart the computer.. you must put the USB stick first before you configure the BIOS..
