Question about Computers & Internet
I replaced the batteries (I am typing this note from a different computer/same kind of keyboard) and reset button on the back, but I cannot "log on" as I need to type in a password...and keystrokes won't register even when I place the cursor directly to the area (NOTE: wireless mouse works fine!). Help. Kathy upstate,NY
I had the same problem, i checked the batteries with a DMM and the measured 1.4v i replaced the batteries with new and i still had the same problem. anyway i ended up taking the keyboard apart and found where the antenna is connected to a push on type connector alongside the pcb board inside the keyboard, the connection was slightly corroded. i cleaned it up and it is working fine know, even with the old batteries.

Yeah, to associate the keyboard, you get to hit the reset one on the transmitter too, then the keyboard. You doublechecked the batteries and did that by now though, right?

This is a known issue with this product don't waste your time trying to figure it out. If you are lucky you get one that will work for you if you are not lucky you'll get one of these faulty ones and will have this issue. It's a manufacture defect and not user error.

I had a problem with the Microsoft wireless keyboard/mouse 1000.
the green light on the transmitter which would stay lit on F. stoped lighting up. the mouse would work but the keyboard would not.
I tried sveral times to hit the reset button on the keyboard to no avail. put new batteries in. still nothing. however i just tried it again. i hit the reset button about 6-7l times in a row and now im typing on the keyboard again. but the F light still does not light up. but the mouse and keyboard are both work now though
