I have had keyboards die and found that the plug in the unit itself was in but just barely. USB is usually rare to do this, but a PS2 connector will LOOK secure but fall out when wiggled. Obviously, too, peripherals do wear out - even keyboards. A quick check is to borrow another keyboard and try that one. I have one of those $12 keyboards as a spare in the closet - a $9 Logitec optical mouse, too. Hey - fror the best illuminated keyboard ever, check out the Borealis FIREFLY. It's like $35 on eB**. Not sure if it's in stores or not.

Need to use a Dell L100 keyboard on my old Win 98 SE computer (custom built). No USB on computer so tried an adaptor. Doesn't work at all. Do I need to download a driver? Where can I find this to...

Those USB to PS2 adaptors are hit and miss. They shouldn't need a driver. What you could do is buy a USB PCI controller, which will allow you to connect USB devices to your legacy system. Best buy sells one for $20 and it works for 98 SE - Windows 7.

My keyboard types numbers instead of letters? I have an older Dell computer. The keyboard model number is L100. I hope you can help.


You should check Your Region and Language settings in your computer's control panel.

From there click on tab 'Keyboard and Languages' and afterwards You'll see a button 'Change keyboard'.

At this part you can add your keyboard layout and it's done. No more numbers!

Keyboard not working after being unplugged & used on another comp

Close down computer and reboot and pray. I mean to close down not reboot, not hibernate, not sleep.
Why? The electronic chips chatter before the operating system boots up. BIOS asks who is here? Any Keyboard, and other internal bits.

For readers... Cold rebooting fixes a multitude of problems with not working. OK, it does not fix everything, but it is a good first try
