Try a different keyboard on your computer.
If that works, try your keyboard on a different computer.
If it fails, then replace the keyboard.

Things to try:

(FOR PS2 WIRED KEYBOARD) 1. Make sure the keyboard is plugged in keyboard port not the mouse port if it is a ps2 keyboard(the plug will be round not square)

(FOR PS2 WIRED KEYBOARD) 2. Power down the computer unplug power to it. Press the power button on the computer while it is unplugged. Wait 5 mins and plug it back in and power it back on.

(FOR PS2 WIRED KEYBOARD) 3. Test the keyboard on another computer and see if it is good. if it is good then the port on the computer may be bad. If the computer has a ps2 keyboard try a USB keyboard on the computer. (make sure to give it 5 mins or so to detect the new keyboard)

(for WIRELESS KEYBOARDS) check the batteries and or replace them.

(for WIRELESS KEYBOARDS) press the sync button on the wireless base and then press the sync button on the keyboard (its usually on the bottom) see what happens. If that does not work press both sync buttons at the same time.

Computer doesn't recognize ez eyes keyboard


unplug the keyboard, go to the manufacturers website and download and install the drivers, plug the keyboard back in.

If that doesn't work

check your device manager and see what keyboards are in the keyboard section. delete anything but the hid keyboard device and the standard ps2/2 keyboard from the keyboard section. repeat the first set of instructions

if that doesn't work either

take the keyboard back it is most likely faulty

USB light for microsoft 3000 wireless keyboard/mouse not turning on. Keyboard and mouse not responding at all. Tried everything I could think of.


Go to Microsoft/help/support.com and you should find a solution. Sounds like you don't have the right hardware or a bad software pack. Also make sure the computer recognizes it. Try another keyboard if you have access to one. You'll probably have to go to another computer to get instructions and print then out and maybe you can do it with a mouse if it works and another keyboard doesn't work. If you can get another keyboard to work and download the drivers for the 3000 make sure the 3000 is plugged into the computer when you download the driver for the 3000.. They do have downloads for the 3000 I just went and looked and the last keyboard I had was a 3000 and I downloaded files from Microsoft. Hope this cures your Microsoft headache; dhgill1949

How do I setup my wireless mouse and keyboard


Need more information but normally you would hook up the infrared device or usb device to the laptop. Then you would make sure that the keyboard and mouse has new batteries in it. At that point windows should recognize the mouse and keyboard. You may have to push on the connect buttons on the keyboad or mouse to get the laptop to recognize them.
Other then that its not really hard. Just time consuming if it doesn't take right away. Most of the time you don't need software installed unless the manual tells you to install them because windows will recognize them.

The T4010 emachine does not recognize the keyboard, but does recognize the mouse, is the answer a new motherboard?


If replacing the keyboard (try a USB keyboard, instead of a PS/2 keyboard) does not help, and the old keyboard _does_ work when connected to some other computer, then a new motherboard is the next logical step.
