How to hookup a microsoft keyboard to a hewlett packard desktop


You simply connect the receiver to one of the available USB ports. Ensure that there are fresh batteries installed in the keyboard. Once the receiver powers up, the OS in the PC should recognize and install it. The receiver may start up with a scanning sequence where the three lights blink in sequence. This means that the receiver is searching for the wireless device. On the back of the keyboard is a small recessed button. Press this button and the receiver should find the keyboard and stop the scan.

Is this system wifi compatible


Turn on your computer and locate the Wi-Fi icon. This could be located on the upper row on a laptop it will have the radiation look ((())) Make sure its pressed on. Usually a wifi enabled phone, computer, or whatever device, will recognize if there is wifi access near you. Most new HP (Hewlett-Packard) Pavilion notebook computers as of August 2010 include an internal wireless networking adapter, used to connect to a wireless network or router. Once connected to a router, the computer can connect to the Internet or other computers on the same network. If the wireless networking adapter is not allowing the computer to connect to a router, there are several steps that can be used to remedy the problem. Ensure that the wireless network adapter is turned on. Most HP Pavilion notebook computers have a switch that allows you to turn off the wireless adapter. The switch typically is located on the side of the computer or on the front. Ensure that the router and modem are plugged in and functioning. Ensure that the lights are illuminated on each device. Attempt to connect wirelessly using another computer, if possible, to test whether the connection problem is with the router or modem. Unplug the router and modem. Leave the power off for approximately 30 to 60 seconds, then turn them on again. Update the wireless network adapter driver using the computer's "Device Manager." To access the Device Manager, right-click on "Computer" or "My Computer," depending on the version of Windows, and click "Device Manager" from the left-side bar, or from the tab labeled "Hardware." Once in the Device Manager, expand the section labeled "Networking Devices" and right-click on the wireless network adapter. Click "Update driver software" to begin searching for an update. If an update is found, follow the onscreen instructions to install the update. Reinstall the wireless networking adapter if updating the driver does not remedy the problem. To reinstall the wireless adapter driver, right-click on it from the Device Manager and select "Uninstall." Once the device is removed from the computer, restart the computer. Once Windows loads, it will automatically detect and reinstall the driver. Run the Windows 7 Diagnostic Tool (if the computer uses the Windows 7 operating system) to diagnose any networking issues the operating system may be able to correct. To access the Windows 7 Diagnostic Tool, open the "Start" menu and type "Network" into the search field. Click "Network and Sharing Center" and then select "Diagnose and repair" from the left-side bar. The Windows 7 Diagnostic Tool will automatically run and will attempt to repair and establish the wireless connection. Attempt to manually connect to the wireless network. Open the "Network and Sharing Center" and click "Setup a new connection or network." Enter the network name, security type and network key into the text boxes and click "Next." If successful, click "Use the existing network" and then click "Connect." The network name, security type and network key can be obtained from the network administrator or by logging into the router. For help logging into the router, consult the instructions included with the router. Make sure you Ethernet/internet is enabled in bios restart your computer during the boot up process you will see on your screen a certain key to press to enter set up (BIOS) press and hold that key to enter bios using arrow keys navigate to integrated peripherals look for SiS On Chip Pci Device press enter scroll to SiS 10/100m press enter make sure its "Enabled"imake sure key scroll http://support.microsoft.com/

The wireless switch can be in many different places depending on the computer you own. For the HP you own, specifically, I'm not sure, but it should either be somewhere in the front of the processor or it can even be on the keyboard. Look for a symbol that resembles a object with "wireless signal waves" coming out of one or two sides. Here is an example of a wireless symbol: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportDocument/c00045244/c00188322.jpg

Once you locate this symbol, you should either be able to push the switch or button on which it's located to activate the wireless switch or you should be able to flip a switch next to the symbol to activate it. If you cannot locate this switch, check your user manual for instructions or contact HP directly to get step-by-step instructions. Let me know if you need anything else.

Why will my HP Pavilion dv6000 not read my router, what do I have to do toget my card to read wi fi signals?


First of all you have to make sure that your wireless network card is turned on...I believe the power switch is right below the edge of your left hand (right in the front of the laptop). the light should turn from orange to blue. When it does, it will either notify you of existing wireless network or you will have to manually have to search for network.
In Windows XP, simply right click the network icon [located in your bottom right corner of your screen] and click "View Wireless networks". In Windows Vista, left click on the wireless network icon [same location] and click connect or disconnect to now available wireless networks. In windows 7, the procedure is similar to the one in Windows Vista.

With secured networks, you will need the network key in order to connect, in others you will have to have your Media Access Control [MAC] address added to a MAC filter list in order to allow you to access the network...
What ever the case, it all depends on 1] Ensuring your wireless network card is turned on 2] Your computer is set to receive an IP address automatically...
