Did the keyboard come with a driver (CD) , if so , reinstall it

if possible, would you be willing to reinstall the recovery Cds to your computer to have a clean set up ?
do you have the recovery Cds -- this means formatting your disk drive --sure, you can back up your important stuff, but i think a reinstall of the recovery Cds is good for the entire computer

what about virus s/w -- what do you use ?

Check that batteries are charged and installed properly.--make sure driver disc is installed if applicable- check instructions as some wireless suites need you to push a small connect button to initialise them . Also try shifting the usb conector into another USB port if it is notm getting reconised.

I hope this helps

mcdevito75 here, Double check Battery installation, try another set of new batteries. If the mouse was originally programed for the computer you may have to reprogram it. Refer to the optical mouse instruction booklet.

My Microsft Wireless Comfort Keyboard 4000 is not registering letters when the key is struck. New Batteries installed. Completely random and frequent.


if you are using it with a laptop, they have issues where the USB port can not power the reciever. If that is the case, i would recommend a powered USB hub. Otherwise, completely remove all of the software, take out all of the batteries, reboot the PC, install the software again and repair the devices.

Most wireless devices have a pushbutton that you push to sync the Keyboard and receiver up again.You likely need to push one or both of the buttons. One is on the keyboard and the other is on the little USB thing (receiver) It may also require a reboot as well afterwards.
