    I bought a largeprint keyboard (no name brand on it) and had to buy a converter to change it from USB to PS/2. But it still won't work. I think it needs to be entered into my computer as a new keyboard, but I don't know how to do it.

Hello,

No for sure not.

Standard keyboards don't need drivers or things like that, they are auto recognized by system. Sometimes some fucntions like smart touches or additional keys may not works but keyboard itself must.

Are you sure you put it into correct PS2 port (the purple one, NOT the green one)?

Leave rate if I helped you, thanks!!

Cheers,
Mike

Keyboard works, but where can I find an actual booklet to help me learn about this keyboard because e-machines did not have one and I have been using another keyboard/mouse set since I bought the computer....


Hi,

At first you have to uninstall drivers of your old keyboard.

After connect your new keyboard and install drivers which came with your keyboard.

If there is no drivers came with keyboard, let windows automatically detect your keyboard and mouse and install drivers.

I want to connect an external key board to my Medion Notebook Model No. MD 96420. Can it be done, ? I have plugged the keyboard into a USB port, but the computer doesn't read it. What else should...


Greetings,

Yes, this can be done, but it sounds like you may need to install drivers for your keyboard. Did it come with a CD? Common brand names of keyboard should have drivers included with your OS but some off-name brands may not.

Hi, I cannot print a pdf file or that kind of attachment. Only Word can print. Adobe error shows up and want to shut down the program for protection. I never had the problem before. Just started.


Is it a file that you created in pdf format, or is it one that you have had emailed or attempting to open from another source? Some pdf files have protection put on them by the file originator to avoid the file being changed/printed. Here are some tips to try to get them to print for you.
  1. Open your computer's Internet browser.

  2. 2

    Type www.a-pdf.com/security/a-pdf-rr.exe in the browser's URL box to access the PDF restriction converter "A-PDF Restrictions Remover."

  3. 3

    Press the "Enter" or "Return" key. Your Internet browser will access the site's PDF converter file. A dialog box will appear on your screen--"Opening a-pdf-rr.exe."

  4. 4

    Click "Open" or "Run" to download and set up the program directly. Click "Save" or "Save As" to save the program's setup file on your computer for running later--use this option if you using a slow connection like dial-up. The program will download and set up on your computer if you selected the "Open" or "Run" option.

    If saving the file to your computer, navigate to the directory where you want to save the file to. Select the "Desktop" if you have a hard time locating downloaded files on your system.

    You do not have to access the A-PDF Restrictions Remover website again once the file starts downloading or saving to your computer.

  5. 5

    Double click on the "a-pdf-rr.exe" icon to open the program, if you selected the "Save" or "Save As" option.

  6. 6

    Click "Run" when prompted with the "Open File -- Security Warning."

  7. 7

    Click "Next." Click on the circle by the wording "I accept the agreement." Click "Next."

  8. 8

    Select the directory where you want to save the "A-PDF Restrictions Remover" file. The default is your "C:\Program Files\A-PDF Restrictions Remover" folder. Click "Next."

  9. 9

    Click "Next," "Install" and then "Finish." A-PDF Restrictions Remover will start automatically.

  10. 10

    Navigate to the directory where the protected PDF file is located.

  11. 11

    Right-click on the PDF file name. Select "Remove Restrict & Save As."

  12. 12

    Select a location to save the converted PDF file to. Click "Save." If you want to change the PDF file's name, enter a new name in the box next to the wording "File name." The protected PDF is now converted to a unprotected one.

  13. 13

    Double-click on the converted file to open it.

  14. 14

    Select "File," "Print" and then "OK" to print the unprotected, converted PDF file.

  15. Printing a Protected PDF By Taking a "Screen Shot"
  16. 1

    Open the protected PDF file2

  17. Press the "Alt" and "PrtScrn" keys together. The PrtScrn key is located on the upper right-hand side of your keyboard, if using a desktop computer keyboard. If using a laptop, the PrtScrn key is located above the "F10" function key.


  18. 3

    Open your computer's word processing program by clicking on the program's icon on your system's "Desktop" or from the "All Programs" menu.

  19. 4

    Press "CTRL" and "V" keys together to paste the screenshot into a blank document.

    If using a Mac, click "Edit," "Paste" from the main toolbar at the top of your word processing program.

  20. 5

    Click "File," "Print" and then "OK" to print the PDF screenshot. If the protected PDF file contains more than one page, press the "PgDn" key and repeat steps 2 through 5.

I just bought a brand new Acer Aspire One and have keyboard issue


It's most probably a shipping damage. The keyboard is connected to the mainboard using a very thin and very breakable plug. They use this kind of plus so that they can save up space. You should get another laptop or a full refund since it is not your fault.

Dell inspirion keyboard 1420 replaced new but not working


Not trying to insult your intelligence but are you sure you plugged the keyboard cable all the way and even into the slot and locked it in place. I have had issues where the contacts were not all the way seated in the slot and not fully locked in and the computer knew the keyboard but I had lost partial function. Below is the Dell diagnostics manual for running start up test on your laptop. If your installation is the original it should have a diagnostics partition on it. These steps will show you how to access and run. Just copy and paste the below in your internet browser address bar, hit enter, you can also print it to follow along when the laptop powers down. Good luck,, ParrotHead PC Repair

is your battery brand new? install a new one, if the problem exist, try to unplug and plug again the usb keyboard receiver, if the problem goes again, you need to contact your keyboard's manufacturer since it is a newly bought, it is still under a warranty. so you must contact them, to have your keyboard replace by a working one

Good luck, Godbless
