Question about PC Concepts Keyboards & Mice
I got a new computer from my daughters and I wanted to use the above keyboard, It is not USB but I do have a adapter for it to make it so, however I cannot get it to load on the new computer, as it will not reconize it as such. I was hopeing that it would be Plug and play, but I guess it is not.
The new computer is a Dell Insiron with all the trimmings, Now I guess the only way to use it is with some software which I do don have. Can you help... It is a Keyboard SK-6000 series.

For the touchpad: if your keyboard equipped with standard COM connector try: http://www.acersupport.com/library/ti_note/2x0tpad.exe (older synaptics driver - working with COM port based touchpad perfectly) - or if you have converted it to PS2 connector (i converted my one from COM to PS2) you can use the latest generic touchpad driver from http://www.synaptics.com/support/drive.cfm . (sadly synaptics dropped support for comport based devices in the latest drivers...)

You can download the driver here. However, it is not compatible with some newer CAC Cards especially with Vista. If you install the driver and it won't read, you need a new reader. Sorry.

(That is the the Num Lock indicator, nothing to worry about.) If it is not working it is likely because USB keyboards can time some time to be recognized by windows, let the computer boot up with the keyboard connected and let sit for up to ten minutes.
Sometimes if other hardware is detected at the same time which requires drivers to be installed, windows will never proceed to installing your keyboard, however you cannot install the other drivers until you have a working keyboard. To solve this, you will need to use an older style PS/2 keyboard to get everything installed and working as they do not need to be detected.

Make sure that all USB functionality is enabled in the BIOS, especially USB Legacy Mode. If Windows still does not recognize the keyboard, then it is not compatible with USB. USB keyboards can be found as low as $10 pretty easily if all you need is basic keyboard functions.

Sorry for responding to your query late and hopefully you found a solution but nonetheless I am writing it here for others who are facing the same issue.
For every smart card reader keyboard, always visit the manufacturers site, in this case, DELL and resolve the issue from there.
Here is a direct link from where the driver can be downloaded for free:
After running the file, it shall leave driver files in your hard disk. Go to 'DEVICE MANAGER', select the keyboard and click 'UPDATE DRIVER'. Choose the folder where the files are stored and your issue will be resolved.

If it's doing nothing then you have a bad USB port (move it to another USB port) or the USB keyboard is disabled in CMOS (usually hit F2 or Delete button during start up to get to). If the keyboard is working but isn't working correctly, there is something wrong with the keyboard. You probably just need a new keyboard.
