Keyboard not working

My desktop computers keyboard is not working. The mouse works, but the keyboard is not. I've tried 3 other keyboards that all work fine on another computer, but it seems like the computer is not recognizing it. I went into the control panel & hardware section, but the keyboard doesn't show anything listed. I don't know if that means that the computer is not recognizing it or what? Any help would be appreciated. Thank You :)

I presume it is a PS/2 keyboard one that plugs into the Green Connector at rear of PC, if so, then these ports often fault, with the mouse being OK. The best way around this is to get a cheap USB keyboard, and install it. Ensure you set the USB ON in BIOS too. You could try uninstall/reinstall of KB from device manager first.

Hi Tony,
It appears that you have an IBM desktop whose BIOS isn't capable of booting off of a USB keyboard and mouse device. Older computers used to require that a PS2 mouse and keyboard be attached before booting, to prevent you from booting a machine without any way of controlling it. You have 3 options:

1. leave the corded mouse and keyboard attached and never use them
2. update the BIOS for your desktop to the newest one in hopes that the updated BIOS will allow for USB mouse and keyboard operation
3. go to a computer store and get a PS2 to USB converter/adapter. They're small and relatively inexpensive. It plugs into the PS2 port, and makes your computer think that there's a PS2 device connected, when it's actually a USB device.

Wireless Keyboard not connecting


I opened up the Logitech Mouse and Keyboard Settings, turned my keyboard off, changed out the batteries and turned it back on. It then detected the Keyboard and asked for a password, I entered in the password, it said it was rebooting it and asked for another password which I entered (both passwords were given to me in the Settings). Now it is working just fine! Not sure if you have tried this but it might work for you.

Keyboard not recognized


I'm assuming it's a wireless keyboard?

Have you tried "ReSyncing" the keyboard?

1) On the base unit for the keyboard/mouse plugged into the computer press the button on it.
2) Press the button on the bottom of your keyboard.
3) Try to use the keyboard.

You might have to try it a couple of times. That'll fix the problem 99% of the time. The other 1% means your keyboard is dead.
