Well despite the fact you have given up on me when we were attempting to troubleshoot your problem here is one more thing to try and it can't hurt... swap your keyboard to the ps/2 port you use your mouse on and plug your mouse where your keyboard was. the key here is that when you move the computer to another room... you would have to unplug the keyboard and mouse each time. swap them and see what it does.

    one thing that just did occur to me... does the keyboard connect directly to the computer or are you using wireless to access them ?

Need help replacing keyboard of acer 5536


I found them on ebay in 2 seconds. Ebay usually will have whatever you need. I'm sorry to say that this may not be a fix though. Most likely yes, but possibly not. What exactly is your keyboard doing? You should also know that even though your computer is functioning now, if you do not get the spillage cleaned off the motherboard it will cause the board and whatever components it got on to corrode. It's possible that it may not have gotten into you computer but I doubt it. How bad was the spill? It is also possible, depending on what the keyboard is doing exactly, that you may not need a new KB. It maybe just a good cleaning or cleaning out the KB connector.

The number key does not work even after changed the batteries. And the back space button and some of the keys don't work unless you push hard on them.


Look for dirt or grit under the keys, use a can of compressed air to clean out the keyboard. To use the number pad, you have to ensure that the NumLock button has been turned ON.

If the keys still dont seem to work, remove batteries and type randomly over keyboard for about 20secs. Now reinsert the batteries (ensure correct orientation), and reconnect the KB with dongle by pressing the connect button on dongle first and then on the KB. Make sure there is no source of interference nearby, such as speakers, powerful magnets, etc.

If the KB still does not function properly, uninstall and reinstall the software. Still wont function? KB is defective. Contact Logitech regarding an RMA if within the warranty period.

Cheers!

Unable to connect Logitech cordless keyboard


Of course you know to press the connection button on the receiver then on the keyboard. Since setPoint is recognizing the connection I wonder do the multimedia and function keys work? Do you have the the USB receiver for the KB/Mouse plugged into a hub or KVM switch? If so plug it directly into the back of the PC. See this KB http://logitech-en-amr.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/logitech_en_amr.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=9247

Keyboard not working


This is sort of general but it just may help.
Make sure your batteries are in correctly.
Make sure the transmitter dongle is in the USB.
Look on the transmitter and the mouse and keyboard
itself (bottom) for a little tiny button that says connect
or reconnect. Move the mouse about six inches away from
the transmitter and press both the transmitter and the mouse.
That should reestablish the signal twixt the two.(or three KB)

Hi ther. make sure that you connect them to the correct port. If using a wireless keyboard, connect the receiver to the keyboard port. check underneath for the keyboard icon. Make sure that the receiver is connected to that port.

Wireless Multimedia keyboard volume keys won't work.


Go to start and run then type services.msc or if using windows 7 just go to start and type services.msc in the search box. Once open find the service "Human Interface Device Access". Change it from manual to automatic and make sure that it is started.

PC won't boot


Is the case speaker connected to the motherboard?
If it is, do you get any beep sequence? If there is no display, the power speaker output an audible beeps sequence. For example, 3 short beeps mean a problem with memory.

Keep posting here to zoom in on the solution.
