Question about Dell PS2 keyboard 04N454
Dear Xpert (I hope to be one some day),
I was trying to install a wireless elife keyboard and mouse on a Dell system. After it refused to work, I wanted to go back to the original DELL keyboard and mice. Nothing is working! Neither the wireless nor the wired ones are obeying. It's so annoying when you can't even tell the computer what to do! I have discovered, however, that the keyboard (even the wireless) works in the BIOS but is highly sensitive, almost not usable--runs like a cautious rabbit when you even half-press a key!
You've got to help me out ... and soon! Oh, I mean, like YESTERDAY!!!
Plug them in different USB ports, dell computers have USB ports buggy

Could try going into windows safe mode and select basic shell. It may then allow you to reconfigure the hardware settings of your system. Presume you have tried another usb port and removed other usb connected devices if they are using same settings ?

The keyboard should have a button underneath it. Press the button on the usb controller first and then the button on the keyboard. Repeat a few times to see if it connects. If you are still having trouble try another set of batteries as some batteries are not designed for wireless products.

This model keyboard has an internal USB hub and Windows only sees the hub when booting. The solution is to get a generic USB keyboard and boot into Windows. Once Windows has loaded the HID drivers for the sk-8115 keyboard then this Dell keyboard will work from then on.

try to delete the Bluetooth keyboard and mouse, then search/create a new device and see if they are detected. if yes, just follow the instruction on installation. else, there could be a problem on either of them. hope this helps

First thing I would do is get the dell diagnostics disc (hold f12 at start up) and run that, while trying to use the keyboard. (move the arrow keys around and see if they work. you might have to unhook the usb keyboard first) if the keyboard works in the diagnostics area, then its not a hardware issue. (kbd failure would mean no keys worked, or, only some worked sometimes.) You would then need to go into windows device manager and try rolling back the keyboard drivers. If you have full kbd functions outside windows, then you have a windows driver issue. try rolling back, or removing the drivers.

I make oresumption that you have depressed the connection button under the keyboard to reset it?
If still a problem go to device manager and delete the wireeless keyboard so it can be discovered again.
