Office depot ativa keyboard and windows 2000

My boss just bought the most basic keyboard from office depot, and it is usb, (plug and play), therefore it isn't recognized on our office computers which are windows 2000. Is there some kind of driver I can download for a usb keyboard?

If your keyboard is the most basic as you state then surely Windows 2000 should have the drivers for this keyboard in it's Windows Cab files.If however there is a problem with the keyboard it best to go to Device Manager and see what Win 2000 is complaining about.It may also be that you have used a PS2 keyboard before -this will bring about that Win2000 will be looking for the old Keyboard and ignore the USB one. In device manager klick on keyboards-in the dropdown right click on your keyboard-click uninstall.Let windows then uninstall the keyboard and restart with your USB board connected.Windows should pick it up and install.Regards

All of a sudden, for no apparent reason, my usb plug in lights up and is recognized by my computer only when it is in an exact upright position, which, given the flexible hinge, is rather tenuous. i just...


The problem is that the wires for the adapter go through the hinge, and sometimes the can craqck their solders, or even break in some cases. I would check and see if you can open the case of the adapter and see if there are any breaks in wiring, or if any solder points are broken or cracked. If so, you might be able to re-solder them and restore the functionality.

Can i use a compaq keyboard on another brand of computer


Keyboard brand is not important. The keyboard connector is your only concern. The keyboard has either the round PS/2 connector or the flat USB connector. Therefore, the computer must have a matching port for the keyboard to work.

IMPORTANT: A PS/2 keyboard must be connected BEFORE the computer is turned on. A USB KB can be connected at any time but it may take a few seconds for the computer detects it.

Please vote for my solution if it helps.

Wireless mouse does not work after changing batteries.it always has in the past The Dell computer and mouse is probably 8 years old but has always worked.


Try moving the mouse receivers usb plug in to another port. Unplug any new devices and restart computer. Then replug in any new usb devices.
If still not working.......
Look at Office Depot and other office stores for a replacement wireless mouse. I have seen them as low a $9.99 on up. You might even want to upgrade and get a wireless mouse and keyboard set.

Scorpius K3NT USB Keyboard prevents resume after standby in Win2K


When entering standby, the usb ports go to sleep. Most motherboards allow you to tell the bios that you are using a usb keyboard. That should solve the problem. I keep an old ps2 keyboard plugged in and on the floor as a 'just in case'.

USB port is plug-and-play, however, PS/2 port is not.
therefore, what you have to do is shunt down the computer and plug in the keyboard, then fire up the computer.
once you unpluged the keyboard. and plug it back again, the computer will not recognize the keyboard is attached, but it knows when the keyboard is disconnected.
