Re: keyboard don't work

Does it work if you connect it to another computer? Are the lights for Num Lock\Caps Lock on?

Four keys in Belkin wireless keyboard are not working

If only specific keys are not working, something is obstructing those keys\' pickups which are located immediately beneath the keys. This is almost always caused by food debris or liquid spillage as dust doesn\'t provide particles big enough to cause issues.

If those four keys feel "funny" when being pressed, it\'s almost certainly a physical obstruction. If they feel "sticky" it\'s always a liquid spill. If you don\'t recall spilling anything over the keyboard, use a can of compressed air (found at office supply stores).

Turn the keyboard long side up, with the keys leaning slightly downward. Place the air nozzle close to the intersections of the keyboard, starting at one side and work your way to the other side, using short bursts of air. Repeat for every row of keys. Pay special attention to the four that do not currently work.

You\'ll probably see lots of junk fall out of the keyboard. That\'s good, if so--I would then retest the keyboard (no need to reboot the computer). That should fix it--if not, you may have to resort to pulling off the keys that don\'t work. The next possibility would be broken key hinges, but that\'s beyond the scope of this reply.

For liquids, cleaning is hit or miss. If left long enough, liquids will eat away at the circuits, or provide a short circuit and kill the component. Since only four keys are affected, I\'m really leaning towards food debris, but if you did spill a liquid, you can disassemble the keyboard and clean up any residue under and around the keys. Probably best to use rubbing alcohol and a q-tip for that--but if you\'re not comfortable taking stuff like this apart, it might be time for a new keyboard, or find a handy friend. Good luck!

The Ctrl key don't work

Chances are the keyboard is dirty - pull the key off and clean it - but there are two so if it is bugging you replace the keyboard if cleaning doesn't work

Shift keys dont work

If it's just the one shift key messing up it may be dirty. Pick up a can of Air-dust and blow out the key board and all around the "shift" key....also look to see if anything is spilled on it too....this can be fixed with isopropyl alcohol and compressed air. if this don't work then you need a new keyboard.

I have a cyborg III keyboard and cant get the sidekeys to work


In order to use those keys you need to program them with the functions you want. They don't have anything pre-programmed to do by default.

Download the latest drivers and software from here : and program them to what you want.

Hope it helps...
