Keys not working

Hi! Love my 4000....have had it about 9 months. Recently started to not register random key punches. Rather inconvenient since I do a lot of data entry. I replaced the batteries and still having this problem intermittently. Not sure what to do!?!

My Microsft Wireless Comfort Keyboard 4000 is not registering letters when the key is struck. New Batteries installed. Completely random and frequent.


if you are using it with a laptop, they have issues where the USB port can not power the reciever. If that is the case, i would recommend a powered USB hub. Otherwise, completely remove all of the software, take out all of the batteries, reboot the PC, install the software again and repair the devices.

Laptop keyboard "dropping" key strokes


If this happens always with same key, then it is usually a bad key switch, and keyboard must be replaced.

If this happens randomly on a set of keys, then the keyboard flat ribbon cable is not well connected or is faulty, or the keyboard is faulty.

The laptop must be taken apart to check the keyboard connection.

The keyboard on dell is accessed removing determined screws underneath, then removing the upper cover that enclose pad and armrest.

If the keyboard is well connected, and fixing connector does not solve the problem, then the keyboard must be replaced.

Recently I've my enter key has been completely unresponsive. I popped the cap off for more info but it appears to be on correctly and simply doesn't work. This would be a mere inconvenience as I can either...


The cost of replacing the keyboard is relatively low. If you do it yourself, about 35. If you have a techie do it, double that. That is most likely the only fix.

Microsoft wireless keyboard 4000 - The upper keys not working


A microsoft update, or a system rollback may have changed the drivers, or unregistered the buttons from the associated profile..

If the keyboard came with drivers, or software, you will more than likely need to re-install them.

Microsoft 4000 Keyboard


Start simple - unplug and replug the cord that connects the keyboard to your computer. Try typing again. If it still does not work, restart your computer. If it still does not work after restart, go to Microsoft's website, and redownload the drivers/software for the keyboard. Good luck!

Microsoft 4000 wireless keyboard is not working


Look under the wireless keyboard. There is a door to install batteries. It sounds as though you just need to replace the batteries on the keyboard. I think that they're AA.

Good luck!

Keyboard not responding or typing random letters


You have stuck keys from when you removed to clean. Remove the stuck keys and see if it works OK when you press the rubber cap instead of key
The back space one may have a link under it if it is a wide one ensure it is fitted correctly
