Generally, if you are using a corded keyboard, it should automatically get recognized and the built in Windows drivers should work.

If you are getting a wireless keyboard, make sure you have the latest driver/software and have that installed.

Numbers not working

The motherboard on your laptop is not the problem. It is the driver. If it was the motherboard the keyboard would not be working at all.

The keyboard driver is corrupt. Disable keyboard driver then uninstall keyboard driver.

NOTE : This will stop the keyboard from working at all make sure you find the correct page to download the correct driver, or have the correct driver for the keyboard on CD before following this procedure.

Scan for Hardware Changes and reinstall the keyboard driver.
Restart the computer.
The numbers should work now.

Just to be on the safe side, you might want to run a full virus scan.

If this does not work I would suggest that the ribbon cable connecting the keyboard to the motherboard may be loose. If you know how than you can fix this yourself easily. If you prefer you can take this to a repair shop and it should cost no more than 20 pounds to fix. It is just a case of opening up the front of the laptop and securing the cable.

I have an Iball mouse usb type. Suddenly it has stopped selecting unless I press shift. Sometimes it selects erratically too. It has also become very fast although I have put the opening speed of folders...

Try going into Control Panel, then get to the Hardware folder, pick Mouse, and go to Driver, and update the driver- it could be corrupt.
It sounds like a corrupt driver, and that's where we should start. Of course, the mouse could be bad. I see you have a mac, and I've never had one of those, but get to the folder that has your mouse and reinstall the driver, if you have that option. Hope this helps.

My Microsoft wireless mouse just stopped working on my HP 550 laptop. All lights are on--no obvious problem I can see. (Wireless notebook optical mouse)

Try downloading the driver in your computer again. The registry file can be corrupt from other downloads. It has happened to mine twice so far in two years The drivers can be found at this link below...Remember I do not know what model you have so a 3000 & a 4000 model link for each are showing for you below here,sh,28746,138,20,.html

My keyboard is not letting me type nothing, why?

It may be broken, unplugged, not compatible, or the drivers are corrupt. Just make sure everything is hooked up correctly, then if so, go to device manager and look for yellow exclamation points. If found, the drivers need to be re-installed or updated. If it is a USB keyboard look under keyboard and USB devices. I hope this helps.

My computer stopped recognizing my wireless keyboard & mouse. Says it's missing a driver or that the device is malfunctioning. Don't think it's a battery prob. Do I need a new driver?...

Uninstall the Keyboard driver.
Unplug the Logitech keyboard.
Restart the computer.
Plug the Logitech keyboard back into the computer.
Windows should recognise the keyboard and/or the mouse.
Place Logitech setup disk in drive.
Reload the drivers...

The drivers sometimes corrupt themselves..
You might download the latest drivers for your keyboard/mouse.

Wireless keyboard and does work

If you go to the Dell website and click on support they can scan your computer and let you know if you have any missing or corrupt drivers. You will need your model and possibly the service tag number which should be on one of the labels on your computer. Dell keeps some of the drivers on their website

Wireless mouse doesn't work

This problem was happening on my system but i managed to fix it easily! What has happened is your itouch software has become corrupt so it will only recognise your keyboard thus the usb connection. You will need to download/install off disc onto your computer again but do NOT go to uninstall program manager on windows as it will not appear there because even though you can access the itouch configuration panel, the database is corrupt and the administrative system will not recognise this. Just download/install via disc and it will just install with no alerts unlike most programs which will recognise the program is already installed onto the system. Once the setup is 92% it will freeze for a second then the found new hardware window will appear on screen go through that process and your mouse is back to normal and your keyboard will work via itouch software.
(Please note that this will only work on windows)
