Microsoft Wireless Laser Keyboard 6000 v2.0 NOT WORKING

I had this for less than 25 hours and they keyboard doesn't work. I've uninstalled and reinstalled software, replaced batteries (they didn't need to be replaced but did it anyways) press the reset buttons repeatedly. Microsoft online help of no assistance. What the heck is wrong with it? The mouse works o.k. with 1 exception - when I use the Magnifier button, it won't shut it off - have to reboot. What is wrong???

These days the air waves are very crowded. All bandwidths and frequencies are so close together, interference on such a small device is almost guaranteed. The common symptoms would be that some keystrokes respond but not others, and usually intermittenly.

Also if your receiver is a USB 2.0 device and it's plugged into a lower USB port, the dive will be flaky.

Everything Microsoft makes doesn't work initially, see if their website has a software patch.

Got liquid spill on lap top keyboard, lap top works fine,but some keys do not work, any suggestions!!!


Hi there,

Almost every laptop keyboard ever produced (or so it would seem) is available new as a part on eBay. It's where I buy all mine. SInce you don't mention the model of laptop here, just got to ebay's main page and in the search box type your laptop model followed by the word "keyboard". Most of them there are around $10 while others range up to $25.

Keyboards are usually just about the quickest and easiest part to replace on a laptop.

Best Regards,

Marcus

The microsoft wireless mouse stopped working after a power failure. I get a message that says the USB device is not there. But I cannot navigate my computer w/o the mouse


The Microsoft wireless mouse comes with a wireless receiver, right? Before you do anything, the first thing that you can try is to replace the batteries with fresh ones.

If same problem occur, try to connect the wireless receiver into different USB ports of the computer. Then check if your wireless receiver and mouse has a connect button. If it does have connect buttons, briefly press the connect button on the receiver, then hold down the connect button on the mouse for 5 seconds. Then release the connect buttons.

If you get the same problem, hold down both connect buttons (receiver and mouse) at the same time for 5 seconds.

Last, try to connect the wireless receiver into different computer. If you get the same problem, send the receiver and mouse to the manufacturer for repair.

Thank you and good luck!

Wireless mouse and keyboard issues


If you have both sets of keyboard and mouse plugged in, turn off the computer and remove the old mouse and plug in the new mouse. Reboot and if necessary use the keyboard to login. Once windows is loaded let it detect the new mouse and then shut down again. Take out the old keyboard and reboot. You should now be able to use both new pieces without problems.

Need replacement key for Microsoft keyboard


Best, cheapest and possibly only answer is low-tech.

Do some networking to establish if there is a Technology Recycling Depository Facility near you, and request the ability to take a part.

Depending on your locale, this could be a free solution for you. Given the fact that it is a desktop keyboard, it may not be worth the trouble given the cost; however in this economy I can understand where you are coming from and it is good to see one less disposed piece of technology.

Also check around for a local computer shop, they will probably be willing to give you an entire dead keyboard for free, if not just the key you require. Providing that you give them a little initial and closing respect. (Local computer shops get a raw deal with the advent of corporate fix-it locations.)

These are two free suggestions.

The final may be valuable to you, providing you need the E key more then another key on your keyboard. Simply remove another key you seldom, or never, use and replace the E key with that key.

Best of luck friend, we all have to do with what we have.

MS wireless laser keyboard 5000


If the volume controls do not work inspite of reinstalling the software, then most likely your keyboard is defective and will need to be replaced.

You could try a clean install as a last resort.
