Broken connector on new USB keyboard

Not long after buying a new iOne Scorpius keyboard I managed to damage the connector. NOT the end that goes to the computer ... the end that actually goes inside the keyboard! There's a little, beige, four pin connector that attaches to the controller and one of the wires pulled out. Can I fix that plug or do I need to get a new cable? If I can fix it, how? If I need a new cable, where can I find one?

I would contact the store that sold you the keyboard, and found out where you can find replacement parts. I went to the iOne website and there wasn't a support section, that I could find.

Is your keyboard connected via USB (a flat rectangular connector), PS/2 (A round connector, often it is purple), or AT connector (a round connector that is roughly twice the size as the PS/2 port for your mouse)? More than likely, it's connected via USB. Especially if it was bought within the last five or six years. If it is a USB keyboard, try plugging it into a different USB port and see if that helps. If that doesn't help then most likely the cord on your keyboard is damaged (kind of like when you have a pair of headphones that will only sound on one ear unless you jiggle the wire). If it's not the USB port (or you have a PS/2 keyboard) I would recommend you buy a new one. You can get one for as cheap as $10.

How do you "print screen"?


I don't think that this keyboard has that key built in.
Have a look at Gadwin PrintScreen for capturing screens or active windows (and other features). The default hot key for this program is "print screen" but can be redefined.
You could also use the on screen keyboard.
Windows XP comes with a built in on screen keyboard. Basically a graphic of a keyboard comes up and acts like your keyboard, you can use your mouse to hunt and peck around. What uses does this have and what did I use it for? Well, it's good for people with disabilities, where it would be easier to use a mouse than trying to type or it's great to use when your keyboard goes loco on you. Yes, we've all had our keyboard go nuts. Here is how you launch it:
- Click "Start" button - Click on "RUN" - Enter\type "OSK" (without quotes)
The keyboard comes on
You can also create a shortcut to the "On-Screen Keyboard", because if your keyboard should go out on you, it would be handy to have it. All you do to create the shortcut is to:
- Right click on the desktop - Click the new shortcut button - Enter\type OSK, click next twice, and there you have it.

Afternoon. I read that this keyboard does not have any access to the trackball directly. I guess when cleaning time comes, the whole thing will have to be taken apart.

I am considering the purchase of this keyboard; would you recommend it? I am looking for a keyboard with mechanical keys and a built in trackball.

My keyboard stopped working


What kind of keyboard connector does it have?

If the end of the connector is round with pins (serial connection), just plug the keyboard back in and reboot the computer. With that style of connector, if they get knocked out or come loose while the computer is running, they will not always work again until you reboot.

If the keyboard uses the flat plug (USB) connector, the computer should be able to pick it up again without a reboot when you reconnect it. Also note that if the keyboard is USB and it stops working; if you have any other USB items hooked up as well (IPod, webcam, external drive,etc), check to see if any of those devices are still working either before rebooting your system. Sometimes, another unrelated USB device may crash causing ALL USB devices to fail simultaneously. If this is the case, unplug all USB devices except your keyboard and reboot. If the keyboard works again, reinstall all of your other devices one at a time until you locate the one that crashed all of them (if that was the case).

Hope this helps.

How can you switch over to different computers with the Scorpius -p7 trackball keyboard?


If your keyboard and this KVM Switch are both PS2 (from the picture I see the KVM Switch is PS2 and from the Internet searching for Scorpius -p7 trackball keyboard I see it can be either USB or PS2) the connections are straight forward.

Usually a 2 port KVM switch uses keystrokes to make the switch, they are usually "Scroll Lock" or rarely "Num Lock" -- press the key 2 times with about a second or less between presses. You may hear a BEEP from the switch indicating "it's hearing your request."

Good Luck
Jeff

Scorpius K3NT USB Keyboard prevents resume after standby in Win2K


When entering standby, the usb ports go to sleep. Most motherboards allow you to tell the bios that you are using a usb keyboard. That should solve the problem. I keep an old ps2 keyboard plugged in and on the floor as a 'just in case'.
