My keyboard in my revo rl100 doesn't work


Sounds like the battery in the keyboard is dead. Also make sure you have the wireless doggle that came with the keyboard and mouse plugged into the usb port. You might try plugging it into another port.

I'm thinking your keyboard is dead because of the battery or a virus has hijacked your keyboard.

Try booting up in Safe Mode to make sure it's not virus related. Turn the computer off, then turn it on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE MODE. Select the Safe Mode option and let it boot up. Safe Mode will look different because the icons are bigger and the screen is darker, this is normal. If your keyboard works in safe mode then you might have a virus that can't function in safe mode.

My computer wont recognize new wireless mouse


Make sure the batteries are inserted correctly and have charge
make sure the usb device is properly inserted
make sure you turn the mouse on depending on type/brand of mouse it will vary it could be a button or switch on top or bottom also you might try safe mode

restart your computer repeatedly tapping the f8 key to enter safe mode while the screen is black once in safe mode where the only things working will be your keyboard and mouse allowing you to attempt to repair your computer then if your mouse works
click start right click on my computer select properties device manager control scroll to mice and pointing devices you might see a yellow question mark? right update driver
hope this helps

I cannot use my keyboard and mouse. Something is wrong with my devices


Make sure the keyboard is working in bios. When you boot the computer hit f2 or Del. key to make sure the keyboard is working. Also make a note that the keyboards light blink while turning on the pc.

If you are able to go to BIOS that means the keyboard is working fine.

Boot your computer in safe mode by tapping F8 key while the computer is booting. Select safe mode and check if the keyboard and mouse is working in safe mode.

If it is working in safe mode. Do a system restore to a date where everthing was working fine.

Please revert with the result of above .

Keyboard locks on startup, mouse pad works, FN & ECS (for Standby) works


your comp is infected for sure.i`ve seen many cases where my customer`s comp is infected and they face the same problem.
make sure you have ethernet cable plugged in to your laptop so we can use safe mode with networking. shutdown your computer.on top of the keyboard you have F8 key.the moment you`ll press the power button to turn on the computer start tapping F8. advance boot up options will appear. select safe mode with networking
try restoring your comp to a previous time when it was working. if it doesn`t work don`t worry just follow the steps below.In any case you have to clean virus out of your computer.
download,install and run this software.after running the scan clean all the infections and restart your comp.

Unable to start in Safe Mode with Command Prompt in XP Media Center 2005


Hi there. My name is Alex and I am here to help solve this problem

Depending if the BIOS has legacy USB support for keyboard and mouse enabled, you should be able to run safe mode by pressing F8 before the computer boots into windows. I would not recommend going into the BIOS if you do not have much knowledge to the computer as one wrong configuration could cause some behaviour problems or even damage to the pc's components

I recommend connecting a keyboard and mouse that have cable and the PS/2 connectors (purple and green) which can be found at back of the computer at the top. Then restart your computer, hold down F8 and you will be able to run safe mode. The mouse and keyboard will then work

Keep both the keyboard and mouse plugged in and boot windows. When you get into windows, plug in the USB keyboard and mouse into a USB slot and wait whilst it detects it. After a couple of minutes you should be able to use your USB mouse and keyboard and take out the PS/2 keyboard and mouse

I hope this has helped. Please let me know if you have any questions or need further assistance.
