You may need to download the latest drivers from Dell (or possibly Logitech). Verify your model number, as I do not see anything for the w0147

Hi,
You will probably need to set up those keys. If you have an installation disc that came with the keyboard try to install the software.
If you don't try going to control panel and then go to keyboards to see whether you can modify the keyboard settings.

Step 1:
Dell sells technology such as computers, computer peripherals and consumer electronics to both consumers and businesses. Dell sells both wired and wireless keyboards and mice that are compatible with Dell and other computer systems. Dell wireless keyboards may encounter hardware, software or other problems under certain conditions.

Power Dell wireless keyboards transmit data to the Dell USB receiver, which in turn passes the data to the computer's operating system. The keyboard gets power from two AA batteries. As the batteries lose charge, the keyboard's transmissions can become intermittent. Replacing the old batteries with fresh ones will ensure consistent communication and resolve the power issue. b> Interference Dell wireless keyboards operate best and are least susceptible to interference when the user places them at the recommended distance from the USB receiver. The distance, specified in the keyboard's accompanying software or installation guide, varies by keyboard. Even if the user places the keyboard at the proper distance from the USB hub, metal objects between the keyboard and hub can create interference; moving objects that create the interference resolves the issue. b> Connection The Dell USB receiver that passes data from the keyboard to the computer requires proper and secure installation in a working USB port. If the receiver connects to the USB port improperly, or if the USB port to which the receiver is connected is faulty, the keyboard will not operate as expected. The user can reseat the receiver in the USB port, or connect to the receiver to a different, functioning USB port to resolve connection problems. b> Synchronization Dell wireless keyboards can broadcast at more than one frequency, just as their associated USB receivers do. If the two devices broadcast at different frequencies, they will not pass information to each other. The user can resolve this situation using the buttons labeled "Connect" on the top of the receiver and the bottom of the mouse. Pressing the buttons simultaneously triggers the synchronization process. b> System Dell wireless keyboards are compatible with most Dell systems. However, a keyboard may be incompatible with a given computer for reasons related to the computer rather than to the keyboard. To determine if this is the case, a user can connect the keyboard to a different computer. If the keyboard functions as expected with the second computer, the problem may reside in the first computer rather than in the keyboard.

MY WIRELESS BUTTON IS NOT WORKING HOW DO I TURN ON WIRELESS USING FUNCTION KEYS


Dionne,
The answer is at your fingertips but without the Model No. I have to just guess.
Some (Dell) have a switch on the side. Some (HP) use a function + F#key. My wife's gateway is a finger touch to the little antenna icon on the upper portion of the keyboard.

MFG?
Model?

I have a Dell Inspiron ONE Desktop. My wireless mouse is working properly. However, my wireless keyboard is not functioning at all.


First, make sure that all of your batteries are good and working in all your wireless devices. I am assuming that this is a wireless mouse and keyboard combo. You may have to hook up a corded keyboard at first. Is this a usb wireless device or ps2 (round kind)? Once you have made sure that all your batteries are in good condition, plug all devices in before you start your computer. and be sure that they are in a good distance from the receiver. wait till your operating system has loaded and is either at the desktop or sign in with password window. Hold down the button on the receiver and keep it pressed down while you press the connect button on the keyboard then the mouse. Do not let go of the receiver button till you have connected both devices. Did this work? If keyboard still does not work, with the corded keyboard plugged in, first make sure you have all the software for your brand of keyboard and mouse combo. Once that is done, install it. Go to control panel..keyboard or if the software takes you to a set up area. Follow their prompts. This should work.

The keyboard is locked


Dear Sir,

plz folow this step to unlock keyboard

  1. Step 1 Check to be sure your "Number Lock" or "Function Lock" keys aren't lit. These can lock out certain parts of your keyboard. If either of these is lit, press them to unlock the locked portion of your keyboard. These can be found at the top right on a laptop and between the number pad and main keys on a desktop keyboard.
  2. Step 2 Save all open programs using your mouse. Use your mouse to restart your computer. This will only work if your computer isn't frozen. If your mouse doesn't move, press the power button on your Dell until the computer turns off. Press it again to restart. If the issue was lack of memory or a locked program, this will unlock your keyboard. Continue to Step 3 if the keyboard is still locked.
  3. Step 3 Shut down your computer using your mouse or power button. Don't restart. Unplug your Dell.
  4. Step 4 Remove the battery if you're using a laptop by turning the laptop over and sliding the battery release latch. Slide the battery out and replace after one minute.
    For desktops, disconnect the keyboard from the desktop. Reconnect after one or two minutes.
  5. Step 5 Reconnect the power adapter or AC cord. Start your computer.
  6. Step 6 If your keyboard is still locked on a Dell desktop, disconnect the keyboard. Restart your computer and reconnect the keyboard after the system boots. Allow your operating system to recognize and reinstall the keyboard.
Thanks For Your Time,
