Question about Casio Music
SOURCE: Casio CTK 810 with Windows 7
You need a midi to usb interface, otherwise it is quite simple. I personally have an M-Audio interface that plugs into my midi out and plugs into your usb port on your computer. Once done, you can create a profile in Reason for your CTK. Windows 7 will notice the M-Audio device and then you will be able to use midi. You may have to install a specific driver for the particular M-AUdio device (or another midi to usb interface) but that is simple. You do not have to worry about a driver for the keyboard.
In my experience, M-Audio makes about the best midi/usb interface, and they come in all popular configurations. I use a very small 1-to-1 interface, though there are multi port interfaces one can buy. I purchased mine on eBay, though you can find them at Guitar Center if you have one in your City, or alternately Musiciansfriend.com web site. Many online stores sell them though. You amy want to use Amazon or a price comparison web site to find your best deal.
Thank you for using FixYa, and good luck.

First make sure a keyboard "split" option is not set.
Probably you are going to have to clean the key contacts. They are likely conductive rubber "pills" that are pressed onto a circuit board that has interleaved fingers. Clean both the black pills and the circuit board using ONLY 99% isoprophyl alcohol and Q-Tips.

Testimonial: "Worked perfectly. Keyboard plays like new. Thanks!"
Sorry, but many of the low end keyboards do NOT have backlights. This is especially true of those that have the capability of running off batteries like the CTK-496.
The display in this is a reflectance type that needs ambient lighting to view.
