Question about Computers & Internet

2 Answers

As I previously posted in my initial email, my keyboard's 12 side buttons, 6 on each side, with special functions, are no longer operative. IThis is a HP 6234 Pavilion desktop. I have used computers since 1981, so I do have some idea of what I am doing. I have gone to Control Panel - keyboard's - no help; I have restored to an earlier date. The buttons are very useful, and used to work. David Johnson

Hi, David.

Unfortunately, I am only able to see this Email, not any previous.

But, based on your description, it sounded like your system could have had Spyware, but since you used System Restore, your OS is probably OK.

Have you tried connecting your keyboard to another desktop to see if the keyboard is faulty ??

Also, try upgrading the keyboard software via Device Manager.

Hope this helps.

    Hi, David.

    I found this additional help on the HP site:

    Apparently, HP and Compaq keyboards use special software (kbd.exe) in addition to the normal
    keyboard drivers that come with Windows. This software provides extra
    functionality for the extra multimedia keys, Internet keys, and the volume
    control (on some keyboards).

    Again, hope this helps.

Can you remember if you downloaded or installed a file around the time the device stopped working correctly? There are only a couple of things that will do this and that is software and hardware. If we want to rule out windows, attach another keyboard and see if everything works or hook that keyboard up to a laptop or something and see if it works on another system. Sometimes going through the system restore just to examine the restore points to see if windows snuck an update in on you that might have gummed up the works....does the keyboard have a driver disc and can that device be updated from its support site...maybe there is a drivers download you can do to bring it back to life. Last but not least mayve the thing wore out...after all it is electronic and is basically one big vircuit with manual inputs...maybe something let go in it....but if you can test it on another rig then you'll have your answer to that. Good luck to you.

Special function keys do not work. ie sound, internet, email, calculator etc

you need to have the 3rd part software installed for them to work, you or someone else may have inadvertently disabled this software in your msconfig, or using a 3rd party startup manager, but that is assuming that the buttons functioned before, if this is a new keyboard/mouse make sure you install the software for it.

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

Appreciate the information. Actually I am in contact again with needgurufast (Ellen Sitter?) and she has posted on the extension of the Live Session. Although no longer real time, we have exchanged additioanl information. There was just a hitch that the model number she eventually posted does not show up and could probably be a misstype, an O for a 0, a B for an 8, G for a 6 or a Q.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
