Keyboard device says working properly, signal strength is excellent. The keyboard just does not do anything. The mouse that came with it works fine. Checked all batteriers, drivers, etc.....
I have a logitech cordless keyboard sometimes when I boot up the keyboard works perfectly other times I'm unable to type any letters . It is definitely not the keyboard as this is a relatively new one and I had the same problem with my last one. If I switch off and reboot usually the keyboard is ok. Any suggestions ?

You need the wireless signal receiver. Cordless mice and keyboards send out a signal that needs to be picked up by your computer. Most of these systems plug into your USB. Here's a photo:
It should look something like that device on the mid-right side of the photo. That device will pick up the signals. It plugs into your USB. I hope this helps!
As i understand your concern that on your laptop and desktop pc you are getting excellent signals so it might be possible that your third device required to upgrade the drivers for that. Because sometime it happened that the device driver not working properly.
The part that goes into the USB port is the mouse receiver. If it has a button on it, press it and then tuen your mouse over and press the button on the bottom of your mouse. This is the reset/connect button. Hope this is of some help. Bud
Do you have any other wireless devices nearby? There could be interference between the different devices. Or as r_generato says, you might want to replace the batteries with new ones since reception distance is directly proportional to battery strength. Also, if you use rechargable batteries, they work at a slightly lower voltage and non-rechargeable, alkaline batteries will probably get better performance.
Have you attempted to use an external mouse? - USB - if so does that work?
if it does - Click on START - Control Pannel - Keyboard (& Mouse Respectively) - Click on the hardware Tab - Select the relevant Key Board, Click on Properties - this will give you a device status - if is is not working properly - click Trouble shoot & follow the onscreen instructions. - If is "Working Properly" click on Drivers - check your driver is updated, or roll back.
If you happend to be on a server and the keyboard and/or mouse have stopped responding - you will need to restart (The Server). Ensure that the Keyboard and mouse are on PS2 connections and not USB - the Severs do not like USB Connected Comms Devices. I have found if there are wireless mouse's &/or Keybourd's &/or any USB connected Mouse/Keyboard, they tend to somehow interfere with each other (i.e. the sever with one of the terminals) - only remedy I have ever managed to make work is restart.
