Question about Microsoft Wireless Entertainment 8000 Keyboard

MS Wireless Entertainment Keyboard 8000 - FN keys not working!

Hi -

For some reason the function keys on my keyboard don't work.

They automatically work as the hot keys (i.e. open, etc.) and the FN key + the key opens the favourite key assigner?

Any ideas how to get the normal function keys operational?

TIA Andy

There is probably a function lock or "F-Lock" button. This works just like caps lock, or num lock. Turn off the Function Lock if you have one, and see if that solves your problem.

Keyboard of myASUS K50IJ-XA1 15.6-Inch Versatile Entertainment Laptop (Black) is locked How to unlock the same? Kindly help


Well, do you mean only the keyboard is locked? Can you boot the system properly? Is the mouse working? Which Operating System is running on your Laptop?
Here are a couple solutions you can try before you let me know the above queries.
1. Press and hold down the Windows Logo key on the keyboard while pressing the L key on the keyboard once. In other words, Press Windows Key + L once. If this doesn't work, don't forget to include the Fn key while pressing these two keys. Windows+Fn+L. Still nothing?
2. Turn off the Machine, remove the battery and unplug the charger. Leave it for at least 10 seconds, you can press the power On button on the laptop without the battery and the charger installed/plugged in. Now re-install the battery, and turn back On the machine. It should work.
If you need further help, if the problem persists, Let me know with the details.
Good Luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

My dell xps m140 wireless switch, where is it located on the computer. I need to switch to wireless


Hi Devoo,

I got your issue , in your dell laptop to turn on the wireless switch in your keyboard press the Function key Fn+F2 simultaneously
(Fn key is in left side of ur space bar, near Alt key) automatically your wireless switch will be turned on and you will be able to go online wireless .
I am sure this will work.

Thanks & Regards,
Prema

Ms 8000 mouse pairing code


You choose your own code. It's a keyboard right? So it has numbers on it...and an Enter key.
1. Press and hold in the small button next to Bluetooth symbol under the keyboard for 5 seconds. The charge indicator lights at the top of the keyboard should alternate flashing red then green.
2. Search for Bluetooth devices on the devices you wish to connect the keyboard to. The Keyboard should be listed there.
3. Enter a code of your choice into the device you are paring the keyboard to and submit it. I used a 4 digit number which worked without a problem.
4. Type the same code and press Enter on the Microsoft Wireless Entertainment Desktop 8000 Keyboard.
The keyboard should now be paired with your device.
Good luck, - GregAndo

Hello, your numlock keys are ON, find your Num Lock button and press it off.
It can be a 2 button combination like FN(function button) + Num Lock button. Then it should work.
other way is to press numlock on your external keyboard and then disconnect the board. see if it works.
