Question about Gateway KYB-7000985 Keyboard

Keyboard not working

I have a fairly new computer (~6-8 months old) running Vistas
All of a sudden my keyboard will not function.
I have tried 3 different keyboards (one wireless), have rebooted several times, have turned off my computers for several hours while I was at work and nothing seems to be working.
All other functions appear to be working fine (mouse, DVD player, etc.)
Any suggestions?

A program deleted my keyboard and now I don't have one showing when I check the keyboard in my control panel. It works at the very start up but not after. I have tried a new keyboard and windows doesn't...

Generally additional drivers are needed for basic keyboard functionality, although Windows does actually install them as unique devices. Sometimes this process can take several minutes (depending on computer speed) and the keyboard will be unresponsive until it's actually installed. Try plugging in your keyboard, rebooting the PC, and giving it a few minutes once it's up and running.

If that doesn't work you can try booting into Safe Mode by hitting the F8 key during the startup process. This will load generic drivers and will allow you to troubleshoot additional drive and/or software issues.

The M button on the keyboard stoped working(I've done this with copy-paste). All other buttons functioning properly. I restarted the computer but no results. Is it virus or technical problem? How do I open...

This is most likely a bad button on your keyboard. You can get a new keyboard for about $13 on ebay, including shipping. just run a search for inspiron 1521 keyboard.

to replace it, you need to remove the bezel above the keyboard. I dont remember for your particular model if you have to remove screws for this, but im fairly certain you dont. It should just be secured with clips, so you can pull it out, from the right side first working your way to the left. If it hangs in any spot check under the battery to make sure there are no screws to remove. Once the bezel is removed you will see 2 or 3 screws holding the keyboard in. Remove these and lift the keyboard up from the back. Then pull it toward the screen to undo the bottom clips. THere will be a ribbon cable from the keyboard to the motherboard. There is a clip you lift up where it plugs in to the board. Then the cable will just lift out. Then you just put the new one in, following my directions backwards :D It will actually be pretty obvious once you are this far.

What type of keyboard are you using? Is it a PS/2 or USB type of keyboard? If it's a PS/2 keyboard (with round purple connector), you may need to restart the computer after connecting it to the computer. But if it's a USB keyboard, there's no need to restart the computer because USB is just a Plug-n-Play device.

You need to isolate the problem. If you're using a USB keyboard, try connecting the keyboard into different USB port of thecomputer. Or try different computer to see if the keyboard is still functioning or not.

If you got the same problem after pertorming some test, it's better to consult the computer manufacturer for second opinion.

Good luck!

Logitech easycall mouse works but the keyboard will not

I had the same problem. Some keys on the keyboard would work, others not. It seemed to happen after an update to the SetPoint software. I got it fixed! I tried everything and in the end this is what worked:

1. I started the computer and obviously could not log in.
2. My mouse worked, my standby key worked, but no other keys.
3. I used the mouse to activate the on-board keyboard in Vista (left bottom corner).
4. I put in my password and logged in.
5. I opened up an app (Excel in my case) to try to type something in.
6. As soon as I hit a key a Logitech wizard for encrypted communication came up!!! It asked me to press the connect button and then enter a code it displayed (keyboard worked at this point).

From this point on the keyboard worked!!

Note to Logitech.... great job on the extra security... bad job on the implementation... if your wizard runs after a PC is rebooted that has login passowrd protection.... how are the users supposed to log in??
Note: My logitech upgrade hung... with mouse and keyboard becoming unresponsive so I had to do the hard power off... maybe the wizard was meant to run after the upgrade before I had to force a restart, but this is something that should be taken into account as well.

Keyboard keys suddenly stopped working

You can try what HelpfulGuy said. Also you should check to see if you have the SetPoint software installed that comes with the package that you bought the products in. If you do have the software installed then uninstall and download the newest version off the logitech website. When installed run through the process of setting up your keyboard and mouse. Now the software should run you through an encrytion service that stops outside sources capturing keystrokes. At about this point the keyboard should be working again(I think this is what was missing from previous installations with peoples keyboards quitting). Also if you are just having repeating keys then there is also a download you can get off the logitech website that can correct this. I think its call something towards the name of mini receiver.

Wireless Mouse & Keyboard not working

Did you replace the batteries? That is likely the cause of the problem.

If you replaced the batteries and this is still occurring, verify that the wireless antenna is not near another source of wires and that can interfere with proper connectivity.

How to program my new Keyboard cordless desktop S510

When I bought my s510 recently I couldn't use the function keys even with the software that came with the keyboard and mouse.

I had to actually download new logitech software for the s510 which allowed me to use the function/extra keys.

Navigate to:,EN

On the right hand side of the screen you will see 'Support Center' below it click 'Downloads,'
From there you can choose your OS w98 and language and download the software you need to get your keyboard working the way it should.
