How to use an extra keyboard

Hi,
I bought an external keyboard from a friend of mine, who used it with her desktop computer (windows xp model).
Now my computer is acer aspire 3680.
I connected those two, but nothing happened. The keyboard didn't come with any cd rom, so no driver for it with me. (I don't even know if the problem is I don't have a driver for it.)
Could someone help me?



I have bought an extra FC ACK-260UA keyboard - but i cant get it func. - do I need a driver - I have Widows Vista

This keyboard was out back in the Windows 98 days. There is no doubt that it should work in Vista. Do other USB devices work on your computer? Try using a thumbdrive, mouse, or another USB device in that same port. You may be having a problem with your USB drivers. Go into device manager and remove all the devices under the USB heading, reboot and let it reinstall everything. If that doesn't help, reinstall the chipset driver and any USB related files from Acer's support site.

Also try your keyboard on another computer to make sure it is functional also.

    It's the Intel 940GML.



    I'd get the driver from Intel as it is usually newer and the download is much quicker, the Acer sites are always sOOOOOO! slow.

    As I sayed wired keyboard do not need drivers to work on Windows XP or Vista, if your Solidtek ACK-260UA keyboard does not work then it is either faulty keyboard or a problem with your usb channels.

    Ensure you plugged the keyboard before starting the pc. If you get a nessage on startup about no keyboard press f2 to override it. If youy still have no keyboard on windows, then keyboard is faulty or keyboard cable had been broken after removing from old pc, or your usb are not working.
    To solve eventual static charges troubles on your usb channels try also unplugging pc from power cable for 5 mins. then plug everything back.
    NOTE: with majority of computers mounting windows XP you cannot use more than one keyboard at a time, therefore you wont probably be able to have both keyboards working at the same time.

    regards

How do I get my cap lock key unstuck on windows 7 computer


Cap lock key is not supposed to get stuck in any version of Windows. If your keyboard's cap lock is not woking, problem is not in Windows 7 but with your keyboard. You are not specifying if you hav a desktop computer or a laptop. If it's a desktop, go to any computer stpre and get a new keyboard. If your problem is with a laptop's keyboard and you don't know how to service them (most surely, you don't), it might not be a good idea to open your laptop and change the keyboard. A friend of mine tried to do this and he simply couldn't connect the keyboard. and finally he had to take it to service. So you should ask professional help to do this work.

Lcd screen stuck in external screen mode


How to use the function (Fn) keys on the keyboard - ThinkPad T40, T40p, T41, T41p, T42, T42p, T43, T43p


Switching the display output location.
Switch between the computer display and an external monitor. If an external monitor is attached, the computer output is displayed in the following three patterns by turns:
  • External monitor (CRT display)
  • Computer display and external monitor (LCD + CRT display)
  • Computer display (LCD)
Notes:
  • For any operating system other than Windows 2000 or Windows XP, no additional procedure is needed. Just press Fn+F7.
  • This function is not supported if different desktop images are displayed on the computer display and the external monitor (the Extend desktop function).
  • This function does not work while a DVD movie or a video clip is playing.
To enable this function in Windows 2000 and Windows XP, the following procedure is needed:
  1. When you log on to Windows 2000 and Windows XP for the first time, press Fn + F7 and select a display-switching function in the Initial setup window. Since in Windows 2000 and Windows XP multiple users can log on to a single operating system by using different user IDs, each user needs to select the function in the initial setup window when logging on for the first time.
  2. If the Fn + F7 key combination have been assigned to a presentation scheme function, start Presentation Director, and change the settings.

The keyboard needs to be replaced or you can plug a full size desktop keyboard into the keyboard jack on your laptop. If you are looking a keyboard, search ebay for a "buy it Now" deal.

Hard Drive problem


Have a simpletech 96300-40001-001 external hard drive from couple years ago I bougt at Sam's. I have lost the installation software. It will now work on my laptop, the computer I bought it for because I installed it there when i bought it, but it will not work on the others (not recognized) and I cant seem to find a download of drivers that will make it work on this desktop and my other laptop. Do you know where I can get a copy of the original installation CD that came wih the hard drive. I am running XP Home on all three computers.
