    Your solution to my probem is excellent. I followed your suggestion and ordered the USB infrared receiver from USBGEAR. I have to wait till I receive the receiver and try it before I can make any more comments about the solution to my problem. I will email you and give you the results at that time.

    I purchased but have not yet received the Infrared Adapter from USBGEAR. After I receive and install the adapter I will email you and give you the results which I think will be favorable.

Hi ocaladan,

Your HP Touchsmart came in with a wireless keyboard utilizing infrared technology. To give you a straight answer, this keyboard will respond/work on any computer capable of receiving infrared signals.

Now, your HP Pavilion is not really equipped with infrared receiver so what you need is a USB infrared receiver that can be purchased from any local computer stores that you have. I included an example available through the link below :

USB Infrared receiver

All you need to do is to plug that usb device (it's "plug and play"), position your wireless keyboard (with batteries checked) and you should be able to use it.

Please let me know if this works, Thank you for using FixYa.

Hp 20-f230 bios battery replacement


Remove the case and it is usually a CR2032 button battery. You will see it on the motherboard with a small clip. Having said that, your is not a straight forward desktop, but a Apple type clone. There is a picture of the motherboard here and I don't see anything that looks like a CMOS battery. You can contact HP Support direct.

Hp touchsmart 300


From the User Guide at... http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/manualCategory?cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&product=4174137&

The wireless keyboard and mouse are pre-synchronized, for your convenience, to work with your

HP TouchSmart PC. The keyboard and mouse should work immediately after you pull the battery tabs to

activate the preinstalled batteries, and then turn on the mouse (A).

You may need to manually synchronize the wireless keyboard or mouse if they are not functioning.

To synchronize them:

Make sure the keyboard and mouse are next to the HP TouchSmart PC, within 30 cm (1 foot) and

away from interference from other devices.

Keyboard: Press the Connect button on the bottom of the keyboard (B) for five seconds. The blue

activity LED on the wireless receiver illuminates when the synchronization command has been received

and turns off when synchronization is complete.

Mouse: Press the Connect button on the bottom of the mouse (C) for five seconds. The blue activity

LED on the wireless receiver illuminates when the synchronization command has been received and

turns off when synchronization is complete.

If this does not work, remove and then re-insert the wireless keyboard and mouse receiver from the back of
the computer and then synchronize the keyboard and mouse again.

looks like this is a wireless keyboard? If so there is usually a connect button on the bottom of the keyboard and/or on the unit itself. You may have just lost the keyboard to wireless receiver connection.
