First start up your computer, then once started plug in the USB cable, after that you should wait for the drivers to automatically load, providing you are using Windows 2000 XP or Visita, build-in drivers should load,
After that you need to pair up the keyboard and mouse.
Under the Keyboad you will find battery slots, please make sure you have new batterys installed, then press you have to find a small button, once found, you will have to press that button togerther with the big button on the end of the USB cable bit.
Press and hold these two for about five secounds, then let go.
That should pair up the keyboard, now to the same for the mouse.
Thats all the is to it. you do not need the installation cd-rom at all.

Hope this information helps. Best of luck.

You may need to turn off the Filter Keys option. Follow the steps below to turn them off.
Go to

3. Make the keyboard easier to use
4. Uncheck the "Turn on Filter Keys" option
You also may need to Check to be sure you don't have Sticky Keys enabled.
BY PRESSING THE SHIFT KEY FIVE TIMES
Without pressing other keys, press the SHIFT key five times to enable Sticky Keys. A window will be displayed asking you if you wish to turn on Sticky Keys Clicking Yes will enable Sticky Keys or click No.
If none of these steps work you may need to replace the keyboard or plug in an external USB keyboard.

The number keys to the right will not work, even after pressing number lock. suggestions?


Please open Device Manager and uninstall what is showing under "Keyboards". If you're unsure on how to perform these steps, follow this link:http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?cc=us&dlc=en&docname=c03540049&lc=en&product=5450010&tmp...
Once you have uninstalled the keyboard driver, restart your notebook and it should automatically reinstall for you.
Let me know if this resolves the issue.


  • If the keyboard is not working in Windows, continue with these steps to uninstall and reinstall the keyboard software in Device Manager.
  • Click Start , then click Control Panel.
    Control Panel opens.
  • Click Hardware and Sound.
  • Click Device Manager under Devices and Printers.

    Device Manager opens.
  • Click View, and select Show Hidden Devices.
  • Double-click Keyboards, right-click the keyboard name, and then click the Uninstall button to remove the device from Windows.
  • Restart the computer.
  • The keyboard should now work correctly.
  • Your computer comes with several software programs that can test the keyboard for key or hardware failures. For more information, see the HP Support document Testing for Hardware Failures.
  • Notebook key presses are slow to respond
    If there is a short delay from the time a key is pressed to the time the character displays on the screen, the Filter Keys function might be activated. The Filter Keys function provides a greater range of key press options to fine-tune key delays and prevent inadvertent key presses. To disable Filter Keys and return to the default keyboard behavior, use the following steps:
    1. Click Start , and type keyboard in the Search box. Then select Change how your keyboard works under Control Panel.
    2. Remove the selection from Turn on Filter Keys. Then click Set up Filter Keys.
    3. Remove the check next to Turn on Filter Keys when SHIFT is pressed for eight seconds.
    4. Click Apply, click OK, and then close the Ease of Access Center.
      The keys should be more responsive.
    Pressing a notebook key once types several characters
    If two or more characters appear when pressing a key, use the following steps to adjust the key repeat delay:
    1. Click Start , and type keyboard in the Search box. Then click Keyboard under Control Panel.
      The Keyboard Properties page opens.
    2. Set the Repeat delay slider to Long. Click Apply, and then click OK.
    Notebook beeps while typing
    If the computer sometimes beeps while you are typing, Toggle Keys or Sticky Keys is active. Toggle Keys causes the computer to emit a beep when the Lock keys are pressed. Sticky Keys causes the computer to emit a beep when the Ctrl, Alt, Shift, or Lock key is pressed. Use the following steps to disable Sticky Keys and Toggle Keys:
    1. Click Start , and type keyboard in the Search box. Then click Change how your keyboard works under Control Panel.
    2. If selected, remove the check next to Turn on Sticky Keys. Then click Set up Sticky keys.
    3. Remove the check next to Turn on Sticky Keys when SHIFT is pressed five times.
    4. Click Apply, and then click OK to return to the Make the keyboard easier to use page.
    5. Remove the check next to Turn on Toggle Keys.
      If selected, remove the selection from Turn on Toggle Keys by holding down the NUM LOCK key for five seconds.
    6. Click Apply, click OK, and then close the Ease of Access Center.
      The beeps no longer sound.
    Wrong characters appear when typing, changing keyboard language, or Dvorak
    If the wrong characters appear when you are typing, or you are trying to use a different keyboard, use the following steps to synchronize Windows to the type of keyboard you are using:
    1. Click Start , and type region into the Search field. Click Region and Language from the search results.
    2. Click the Keyboards and Languages tab, and then click Change Keyboards.

      The Text Services and Input Languages page opens.
    3. Click Add.
    4. Select the keyboard you want to use, and click OK.
    5. From the Text Services and Input Languages page, select the new keyboard in the list and click Move up until it is first in the list. This makes it the default keyboard.
    6. Click OK. You can now use the new keyboard.
      If you find that the new keyboard service works correctly and you do not want to use the other keyboard, repeat these steps and Remove the keyboard service that you do not need.

    Sticking keys Rt7D40


    The most common cause of a problem like that is that some liquid has been spilt into the keyboard, and is now hardening through evaporation. Have you spilt anything, or does someone else use it as well?

    If that is what's happened, I would replace it rather than trying to clean it out.

    Dell Wireless keboard model # RT7D40 not responding


    You may need to press a button on the bottom of the keyboard or on the reciever portion to get it to reconnect. It will be a very small button, probably about an eighth of an inch, that appears level with the surface surrounding it. Use a straightened paper clip or ball point pen to press it. A pencil contains lead that could cause an electrical short between contacts, so don't use a pencil.

    Compaq laptop can't get the ? symbol


    Hi,

    Looks like the French keyboard mapping is still in effect.
    You can try changing the keyboard keys back to where they were by pressing:

    Left CTRl + left Shift at the same time. then try typing the ?/ key. You may have to try this a couple of times to get it to work.

    If it does work, try the right ctrl/left shift key.

    Also found this:

    Control Panel, Regional and Language Options, Keyboards and Languages,
    Change Keyboards. Select the keyboard you that's causing you grief and
    choose Remove.

    If you don't remove the keyboard map, when this switch happens, you'll have
    to exit the application you're in (Outlook, for example), change keyboards,
    and restart the app. Changing keyboards without restarting the app doesn't
    seem to change the mapping.

    Hope this helps!

    Hp 9695c wont boot only ht HP banner shows but wont go to the initialization


    Press and hold down Shift key, when you hear the beep, until system boots.
    If you dont time it right you will get a keyboard error, dont worry, just press F1 key and immediately hold your Shift key again.
    Your system should boot into basic mode, then you need to check your system for virus or last software that may have been installed.
