Won't read keyboard


usb or ps2 keyboard ? might need to be enabled in BIOS

If you want to use a USB keyboard to access Windows command prompt options, make changes in the BIOS (Basic Input/Output System), or to operate legacy operating systems, you must enable support for the device inside the BIOS.

Shut down the computer and disconnect the USB keyboard. Connect a PS/2 keyboard to the PS/2 connector port on the rear of the computer. Turn on the computer and press the "Delete" key several times as soon as you see the initial boot or company logo screen. Wait for the main BIOS setup screen to appear. Press the right or left arrow keys to move the cursor to the "Advanced" or "Advanced Settings" menu option. Press the "Enter" key. Move the cursor to the "Integrated Peripherals" or "Peripheral Configuration" menu option. Press the "Enter" key. Press the down-arrow key to navigate to the "USB Controllers" option. Press the "+" or "-" key to change the menu option to "Enabled." Move the cursor to the "USB Legacy Support" or "USB Legacy Function" field. Press the "+" key repeatedly until the value option changes to "Enabled." Press the "F10" key to save changes to the BIOS settings and exit the setup utility. Wait until the computer begins to restart and then press the power button and hold it for approximately four or five seconds. The computer shuts down completely. Unplug the PS/2 keyboard from the computer and set it aside. Reconnect the USB keyboard restart the computer. As soon as you see the initial boot screen, tap the "Delete" key several times and wait for the BIOS setup screen to appear. If you are able to access the BIOS setup screen with the USB keyboard, USB support is active in the BIOS.

I pressed some keys on the computer and now when I use the computer keyboard when I type o I get the number 6 and when I time i Iget the number 5. what did I do I am using a different keyboard as I type...


Hi Carol,

It seems that the function key (Fn) on the bottom left of the keyboard is stuck or jam. Try hitting the key multiple times or raise it with your fingers. Then try to press I and O again. Below the is image of the key you need to press and clear the jam from. You can also pat the keyboard/ laptop from at the bottom in case the jam wont clear by pressing the key.

Fig 1 : The function key

Fig 2 : The the shown below have multiple icon, those are activated by pressing Fn (function key)

The euro symbol is under the 5, how do i type this?


Hello,

The keyboard shortcut for the € symbol is Alt Gr + 5. However if this does not work, you may also enter the following key combination : Alt+0128.

You have to maintain the Alt key pressed while entering the 0128 code.

Hope this helps you.

sounds like a faulty keyboard to me, I recommend removing the keyboard, and blowing out the connector with a can of air and reinstalling the keyboard. if that does not work I would connect a USB keyboard to make sure it is not a setting. If a USB keyboard is working fine, replace the keyboard.

Wireless belkin keyboard


Hi. I have just worked out how to solve this as I had a similar problem. When you change the batteries of a Belkin Wireless Keyboard model F8E332ukBNDL you need to reconnect the keyboard to the wireless receiver that plugs into the USB port. To do this you press the 'Connect' button on the receiver and also press the green LED connect light at the top right of the keyboard - the one that flashes each time you press a key. I'm not sure in what combination you press these but I pressed them both and it worked.
