I have a Micro Innovations KB730/Kb740X key board. and scine I upgraded from Vista Ultimate to Windows 7 Ultimate, the extra buttons and scoller do not work. it functions as typing key board only. Is there...


Are you saying that everything worked under Vista? As far as I know this keyboard has not had an up to date driver since Windows 2000. When you do not run the driver the scroller and the top row of buttons will not work but the other features will work.

When you do run the old driver the scroller will work, the some of the top buttons can be assigned to other functions but some cannot. Also, when the driver is running the forward and back buttons only work for Internet Explorer.

I have a Micro Innovations KB730X Web Office Pro Keyboard. Had it since maybe 2001...I had to re-install the software and the CD does not work properly. When it first came out it, it tells you it MAY NOT...


I've had a couple of these keyboards since 2001 as well. When using it with XP my take is this:

1) some of the extra key functionality is done within the keyboard and the rest is done through the driver.
2) The driver is ancient and even precedes XP.
3) XP interprets some of the top row buttons rather than passing them to the driver (thus they will never be seen by the driver). This was not the case with Windows 2000.

Your choice now is to use either :
1) use it without the driver (the scroll wheel will not work but all of the buttons on the left will work). This is what I do.
2) install the driver and the scroll wheel will work, some of the buttons on top will be passed to the driver and you can make them launch a few apps. The other top buttons will launch specific MS apps regardless of what you configure it to do. The left forward and backwards buttons will only work with Internet Explorer - not Firefox, etc.

Take your pick. I have looked all over the world for an updated driver and I don't think there is one. I even looked at the patent documentation to see if I could figure out how to write my own.

Use the control panel to uninstall the driver. If you want to reinstall the driver it does NOT remember settings from last time. It just works so poorly that you might think that something like that is happening. If you still think that is the case use regedit and search for relevant entries and delete them.

Had my computer repaired and has come back with some keyboard buttons not working. how can i return to factory settings.


If you're referring to the special function keys (Internet, email, media control and so on), you need to install keyboard driver software so they'll be recognized. Without the drivers, Windows doesn't know what to do when you press the keys so they are ignored. You can find the keyboard drivers at HP's website. Enter your computer model number in the box and click "go" to get to the download page where you'll find drivers and instructions.

Hope this gets you going, and thanks for using Fixya!

I deleted too much from regetit files and now the keypad and touch pad dont work! how am i able to repair it???


Make sure you are connected to the internet so that the computer will have access to windows update if it needs it. Go to the control panel > device manager (windows xp has the device manager in system) scroll down to both the keyboard and mouse (pointing devices) and highlight the devices. Now right click on them and choose uninstall. Once both devices are uninstalled, reboot. When windows reboots, it will re-install both devices and search windows for the files if it needs them. Try the touchpad and keyboard

Some of my keys don't work.and restart my computter to the begining.


hope ur a professional..!!
howevr, try dis..
You'll need to edit the Registry Key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\keyboard layout\preload..change the "1" value setting to the Key name below..You'll also need to expand the file in the File Name to the System32 folder. You can use "System Sentry's" 'Inflate a File' feature to install the file..Layout Name: French; File (Y2K/XP): kbdfr.dll; Key Name: 00010407..
hope dis works..if not can post me comments..i'll try to resolve it better..

the other option:
You will need your windows xp CD to install additional language..
Go to Control Panel..
Click on Regional and Language Options..
Click on Advance option..
Select Language you require..
Click on Apply..
It will Prompt "Please insert Windows XP Cd"..
Insert the CD, and it will install the required files for running the language..

if the above all fails:
u r keyboard is likely to b defective or ur ram..
lightly strike/tap the keypad using ur hand..
open the keyboard..deep clean all the carbon contacts beneath the keys using Iso-Propyl alcohol..put/stick 'Carbon-Dots' (available in cheap level spare market) as n where necessary..
{In laptops with a small screen (14,15" ) the keyboard is accordingly smaller than for desktops, and there is no numeric keypads, or arrow pad. So the keys 7,8,9 0, U,I,O,P,J,K,L ,comma, dot, / have a triple function: the primary function, the shifted function, and a third accessed by an FN-Fx key combination. The actual key combination may depend on manufacturer. If that key combination has been activated, the foregoing keys perform the third function they were designed for..
Read your laptop manual to find out how the Fn- function key works and deactivate the Fn-Fx combination responsible for your keyboard behavior..}..

best is to seek advice of ur system admin/vendor....

I have a wireless keyboard and mouse. I do not have the CD


If you have Windows XP or later you can just plug the wireless receiver and let XP find it and install automatically. You may have to reboot to get it installed completely. Alternatively, if you have internet access you can go to the home site for the keyboard and mouse and download the installation.

Do you have a function key on your keyboard as this may have been pressed and therefore accessing shortcuts on your keyboard. The function key normally looks like this

Fn

Not sure but this may be your issue. Some function keys need to be held down and others will go on when pressed and stay on until they are pressed again.

Let me know if this helped
