Team promark keyboard won't work


If it has a USB plug, try attaching it through a different port hub, i.e. not the usb port right next to the one that didn't work. If that doesn't work, test the usb port with something else first. If the USB port is not the problem, you may need to download a driver for the keyboard.

How to fix ?USB device not recognized? error in windows


Are you getting a “USB device not recognized” error whenever you plug in a USB mouse, keyboard, or other USB device? I love USB and have 5 ports on my computer so that I can connect my mouse, keyboard, camera, phone, and printer to it all at once!
However, last weekend, my computer stopped recognizing my USB devices! The strange thing about it was that the USB ports were not bad because all of my devices were still getting power to them. I could still charge my cell phone without a problem!

So I started with the normal fixing methods, including uninstalling the drivers for my devices and reinstalling them. That didn’t work! Next I tried System Restore thinking that maybe I had installed something and it caused a conflict with the USB system drivers. That didn’t work!
I read online that in order to fix this problem I should go to Device Manager and uninstall all of the devices under USB Controllers. Restarted the computer, reinstalled the USB drivers, but the problem STILL did not go away!
You may also see in Device Manager that the device shows up as an “Unknown Device”. 42b721d.png
So how did I finally fix the problem? Well, apparently it’s a super simple solution! No need to edit the registry, uninstall drivers, or anything of that sort.
Simply UNPLUG YOUR COMPUTER FROM THE POWER SUPPLY. Yes that’s it! Note that this does not mean just turning off your computer because modern computers don’t really turn off when you press the power button as the motherboard still gets power.
First to explain, the motherboard is where all of hardware of the computer is connected to, including the USB ports. Sometimes the motherboard needs to be “rebooted” also because something can go wrong, i.e. all your USB ports suddenly stop working. The small microprocessor on the motherboard will reload the drivers and your USB ports should be back to recognizing all devices!
So first turn off your computer using Shut Down or pressing the power button and then UNPLUG it from the wall outlet. Let it sit for about a minute and then plug it back in.
Hope this helps someone fix that pesky “USB device not recognized” Windows error!

I recently bought the iHome icoinnect keyboard but it did not come with a manual...the keyboard works fine, the ipod is charged...how do I operate the ipod? i need instructions. thank you


Check out the manual from here - it has pictures.
http://www.life-works.com/product_files/iConnect_Media%20keyboard%20for_Mac%20IH-K231MS.pdf
It has instructions for plugging in the mac.
Basically, think of it as putting the mac at the end of a fancy USB cable - should be no different from the standard way of connecting your ipod with your mac

The key board just stopped working. I unplugged it and then plugged it back in. I have also tried rebooting the computer


The keyboard fuse on the motherboard might be gone.
If you are tech savvy, check the motherboard's keyboard fuse (it may be disguised as a 0 ohm resistor).
Easier check is see if all the lights on the keyboard flash when you turn on the system.
If not, it's probably that darn fuse.
Easiest fix for the non-tech savvy is to get a USB keyboard.

IF YOUR KEYBOARD CURRENTLY IS USB then there might be something wrong with the power to that USB port...but if that's the case, it might be the keyboard that did it, so don't go plugging the keyboard into all your other usb ports...get another keyboard, preferably one with a PS/2 connector.

Asus eee keyboard


It's an internal problem. If ocurring after messing with the keyboard the solution is to turn off the asus, unplug the battery, plug it again and turn on. It happens in both 700 and 900 models.

USB port problems


Try going into the BIOS and see if the USB Ports are enabled. I don't know what type of system you have. When you turn on the pc it will prompt 'F1 to enter setup' or it might be F10. Do you have a USB mouse or keyboard? Try those in different ports.
