Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

I am not able to install a Logitech corded Wave Keyboard to my Win. XP operated Pc. I currently have a Microsoft Natural keyboard with a PS-2 only plug. The Wave keyboard is USB only. I can't get past the "keyboard error or keyboard not installed" on boot up. I have went along with the instruction saying install the keyboard first then install the software and I am not able to get a total software install, in fact only about 1% of the software installs...doesn't work get the keyboard error when trying to install the Logitech. The computer is consistent in booting with the Natural and failing to boot with the Wave. Help!!

    I checked and found the keyboard USB enabled and left it there in the bios setup. Thank for that well thought out answer, but it didn't hurt obviously but I still am not able to use the USB connected keyboard

    have you tried downloading the drivers from logitrech?
    or maybe see if your northbridge chip set needs updating.

Try connecting a PS/2 keyboard (PS/2 means the round connector) and a USB mouse (flat connector). What Operating System are you using? Windows '98? Windows XP? Some other OS?

OK! Lets troubleshoot this together.

First thing we want to do is verify that your keyboard & mouse and plugged into the correct places and are powered up and able to work.

Turn your computer on and look at your keyboard and tell me if any lights are on to show that it has power and is operational.

Watch the keyboard lights until the computer gets to the login page and tell me if the lights come on and stay on? Or do the lights turn on for a moment and then turn off again?

If you do not see any lights, please clarify if there are NO LIGHTS on your style of keyboard or if there are lights but they are not lighting up.

If your keyboard has lights and they are not lighting up at all, then turn off the computer and unplug the mouse and keyboard and swap them around. Then turn the computer on again and tell me if the lights come on and the mouse and keyboard become operational.

Once we verify this we can continue to the next step of troubleshooting. Please report what you find and I will help you solve this.

Cursor does not move after complete system restore--cannot get past country-selection page of set-up because numbers and tab directional keys do not work for Back and Next keys at bottom of display....


1) Are the Logitech keyboard, and mouse USB? Do they have a USB connector on the end of their cables?

If you use a PS/2 connector adapter, you'll be able to workaround this problem, and use System Restore.

Example:

http://www.cablestogo.com/product.asp?cat_id=104&sku=35700

Then try to use the System Restore disks again.

Or borrow a keyboard and mouse that use a PS/2 connector, and try to use the System Restore disk/s again.

2) Under the B in Back, and under the N in Next, see if there is an underline. ( _ )
If so you can press the b key, and the Enter key to use Back.
Same for Next. Press the n key, and Enter key.

It seems that the keyboard is not communicating correctly with Windows 7 or your operating system, maybe even with your Dell PC, remember that Dells, Compaq's and other major PC companies program their systems so that consumers will only purchase their factory products. First make sure that you have installed the correct drivers for that keyboard, also try swapping with a friends keyboard and see if the problem continues if it stops with a keyboard swap then the Microsoft keyboard is not compatible which seems rare but possible. Good luck.

Ctrl keys dont work, bought new key board and have same problem, have windows XP


First rule out drivers
- remove the keyboard driver and instruct windows to reinstall the driver

Next check for hardware issues
1. Plug this keyboard into another PC to see if the same problem persists
2. If the problem does occur it is the keyboard (get a new one if that is the case)
3. If the problem does occur then it is not the keyboard it is the port that u are plugging it into.

IS IT USB?
4. If it is a USB Keyboard, plug it into another USB port
5. If the problem persists on all USB ports on the system board, then the problem is the USB ports only IFF the keyboard works fine on another system in other USB ports

Is it PS/2?
If it is not a USB keyboard and it is a PS/2 board, again, and it works fine on another PC, then you have a defective PS/2 port on the system board.

Solution
Get a PCI card with USB ports and install it. Plug ur keyboard into that.

All in one computer and mouse and keyboard are not responding.


Check your keyboard is working or not by accessing your BIOS by pressing del or Esc or F12 (usually) or whatever your boot up screen says. If your keyboard works there then the problem lies in the operating system.If still your keyboard doesn't respond then replace the keyboard.

only if keyboard work, you can fix mouse opearting system problems.

For windows Vista & 7, expand "Mice & other point devices".right click on Microsoft Ps/2 mouse" select uninstall and restart the system.If your mouse is still working the system will automatically installed the mouse driver.And your mouse will work again.

Otherwise get a new mouse.

Note: Check you have wrongly insert the mouse 7 keyboard port at the back too.

Remember : Green for Mouse
                   Purple blue for keyboard

No Audio


Hello,

I have a friend with a systemax, same thing happened to him.

Go into the control panel, select sounds and audio devices, go over three tabs to the audio tab, make sure the sound default device is the onboard audio card. Should be all set.

Let me know how it works out.

Re-install xp


Are they using PS/2 connectors or USB connectors?

Maybe this could sound ridiculous, but it happened to me once, in the past (when the connectors were the same color). Is it possible the the mouse is connected in the keyboard's port, and vice versa?

Install a new keybord


Unplug your current old keyboard, plug in your new keyboard. Two types of connectors: PS/2 or USB. Depending on your keyboard brand, go to that vendor website and download that keyboards software (optional).
