Re: ADVENT KBW100 Aluminium Multimedia Keyboard

You dont mention what operating system you are using. Perhaps your system is going into hybernation causing the keyboard to turn off. Try the following...go to Control Panel, then select Power Options and click on each tab to select your options.

We bought my daughter a Netbook for Christmas and she has been using it for a month. This morning the keyboard is not functioning. We've tried powering it off and back on again and the keyboard will work...

It's clearly a hardware problem. It looks like as soon as the temp of the computer rises, internal connections for keyboard and mouse fails. You must take it to warranty. In the meantime, you can workaround the issue plugging external usb keyboard and mouse.

New aspire z5610, doesn't see mouse or keyboard. Unpacked new computer,followed set up instructions and trouble shooter but can't get mouse or keyboard to communicate.Any advice would be appreciated before...

This is a common problem. With our new Aspire Z5610 we pressed the reset button under the keyboard but the problem came back from time to time. To be be honest the design of the Aspire keyboard and mouse is rubbish. Went out and bought a new Advent wireless keyboard and mouse in sleek aluminium design - works a treat and no problems so far. Cost £35 from PC World.

Want to open an apple wireless keyboard case

Hi, I know I am answering your question 2 years latter, but I just wanted to write it somewhere. The apple wireless aluminium keyboard cannot be opened. The white plastic finishing in the bottom is glued to the keyboard, with a spatula, you can take it off (its hard, but won`t damage your keyboard). Underneath the plastic, you'll see an aluminium plate attached to the key board body. There are some very small screws all over the back that you can take off, but that doesn't solve the problem, other parts of the aluminium plate are welded to the rest of the aluminium body. You can break the welding with a screwdriver, but you'll never be able to reconnect the whole thing in the end. I was so upset with two keys that were not working on my keyboard, that I decided to kill it and share my findings with the online community. All the best, Marcelo

Advent ADE-AD2 drver for vista SP1?

I ignored the "doesn't support your OS" and rebooted. I then got the information icons (scroll lock, num lock, caps lock) on the taskbar. I'm happy with that.

Advent ADE-AD2 Wireless keyboard and mouse

I've actually just bought a new keyboard and mouse (Today!) because I could not get my advent ade-ad2 to work at all on vista, (Previously had it on my xp).
Thought I'd give it one last try as PC world were no help this morning and previous internet searches were no help either.

Soooo. after the usual on/off...push in little button on underside etc.etc...the only thing that I did different was press the "wake" button on the keyboard.

Bloody hell, it worked!

New keyboard going back tomorrow!

Wireless keyboard

Normally with a wireless keyboard you will not have light on the keyboard for caps, it will be on the receiver, so place the receiver so you can see it and you will be able to see the cap light come on. Hope this helps

Software for advent keyboard kbw100

Please provide the manufacturer name of the keyboard. The web site for this manufacturer should have a support section that has a place to download the driver for this keyboard that will allow you to modify and specify the function of the extra buttons on your keyboard.

I have an Advent wireless keyboard problem

Your keyboard is probably set to the wrong region.

Start, control panel,Regional and language options,languages,details.

select united kingdom keyboard and delete the usa one.

this is right for XP - If your using Vista it might be different.

Also I bet the @ key will give you a " sign so this could be a temporary fix
