How do i sync my keyboard to my laptop?

I received a Lenovo keyboard KBRF3971 and I can't figure out how to sync it to my laptop. I didn't get a clip with it like the mouse has.

SOURCE: cannot connect wireless keyboard and mouse

I am assuming that this is an INFRA-RED device, with
plug and play capability.

1) Make sure that the infra-red port is turned ON on your PC,
in the BIOS and in Windows (using control panel)

2) Make sure that the infrared driver is working:

My Computer ==> Right Click ==> Properties ==>
Hardware ==> Device manager ==> ....

Find the Infra-red device and check its status.

Some laptops have a mechanical switch witch controls all
wireless ports. If you shut-off the Wi-Fi, the blue-tooth and
the infra-red will also be disabled.

3) Check for tiny reset buttons on the keyboard, mouse and
the receiver. Press them repeatedly.

4) If the device is communicating, and infra-red ICON
should appear on you taskbar (RHS).

Right click the icon and make sure you enable IR
communications AND plug and play.

5) Make sure you have installed any drivers that came with
the keyboard, if any.

6) Again, make sure that infra-red communications are enabled
in the control panel.

5) Failing that, it is possible that the keyboard is defective,
or the infra-red port on your laptop is NFG, it would not
be the first time.

6) You may want to take your keyboard to a computer
shop, and ask the staff the try it with a different PC.

Alternately, try a different keyboard with the laptop.

SOURCE: micro innovation intelligent wireless keyboard won't sync

Look on bottom of the keyboard, it should have a real small switch giving you the options of chanels. Try another setting then press the button on top of the transnmitter to have it look for it again on another chanel.

SOURCE: mouse connects but keyboard doesn't.

Your keyboard should have some type of button on the bottom that "resets" it. Your keyboard has bounced to a new channel that is not recognized by the reciever. I kept having this problem so now I use a wireless mouse but, a corded keyboard.

How do you get the lenovo ultraslim keyboard model KBRF3971 CapsLock on/off indicator to display on the screen?


This function is driven by a Lenovo driver for the screen. This is not easily removed. If you were to uninstall all Lenovo drivers that would do it, but it would also remove other Lenovo functions like the volume level indicator on the screen and the Lenovo button, etc.

You will need to replace the keyboard, but since there is a mouse problem also, I recommend the laptop be checked for motherboard damage by a computer repair shop. What ever moisture got in will need to be cleaned up.

Replace keyboard on Y510


OK, Here is the official Lenovo Service Manual for every component on the Y510.

http://consumerdl.lenovo.com.cn/UserFiles/UserGuide/en/User%27s%20guides%20and%20manuals/Y450/Lenovo%20IdeaPad%20Y450%20Hardware%20Maintenance%20Manual%20v2.0.pdf

However, removing the panel above the keyboard is not as simple as just removing the 4 screws located in the battery compartment and the three along the back edge on the bottom. Yes there are some "L" brackets on either end that are a pain to get to let go, but I found that by removing the DVD drive and removing the screw in the bay edge closest to the top panel, it helped loosen things to remove the top bezel. You may have to use a small flat blade screwdriver to pry the front edge up by the PF keys. Be careful removing the top bezel though, there are two small electrical ribbons attached to it for the volume and other controls. Once you have the top bezel ose, you simply have to lift the top edge of the keyboard and release the connector ribbon by flipping up the front edge of the connector. the manual illustrates this. Then it's just a matter of reversing the order. Reassembly is must easier and faster than disassembley.
