Hi. I have purchased an M-Audio Keystation 61es Midi Keyboard for use with my laptop. Its a plug and play midi device and works seamlessly with all Windows Xp based computers. However it doesnt seem to be working with this perticuler model of Acer Laptop (TM3102WTMi) I have tried it on 3 laptops and i am having a similar problem. Windows detects the USB device...and installs the drivers withouht any problem. However, none of the softwares (FL Studio, Reason, ACID) seem to recognize an installed Midi Keyboard. On the other hand...all other PC's i have tried it on dont have this problem. All softwares detect the device instantly. I have recovered the latop to its original factory settings. The problem still persists to continue. Please advise

Re: USB Midi Controller
The 'Add New Hardware Wizard' and force it to install the non-certified M-Audio drivers that were supposedly installed when running the M-Audio installer. (Skip internet search, and browse to M-Audio folder in Program files, it will eventually find them.) There are two M-Audio USB drivers that need to be 'forced' via New Hardware Wizard. But Windows thinks its drivers are a better match and even though 'device is working properly' it doesn't get recognized in your software. replaced them with the 2 USB ones from M-Audio, DAW finally recognized the keyboard. I even went through regedit to clean up all the M-Audio stuff so I could get a fresh install.
Good Luck you can do this /Have a great Sunday and a safe one.
