Having problems with your Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook ?

USB wireless keyboard doesn't work

\015 I have a Microsoft Wireless 700 Keyboard that has suddenly stopped working with my Acer Aspire 5100. New batteries have been installed. Receiver seems to be working (green light is on). But lights that have previously been on (on the Acer keyboard) - two green lights in top row to the left of the on/off button are no longer on.\015\012\015\012I also tried connecting a Microsoft Digital Media Pro keyboard to a USB port with Intellitype Pro 5.2 software, and that doesn't work either. \015\012\015\012USB hub is fine. My mouse works, digital card reader works, printer works.\015\012\015\012I can only use the keyboard on the Acer, and I'm not comfortable with it - size, location, etc. I'm a virtual novice.\015

Answers :

You need to unload the USB drivers for the keyboard and let windows find them again at restart. How does a novice do this? It's not hard. Go to Start, Control Panel, System, Hardware, Device Manager, Keyboards. Right click on this and select uninstall. Reboot your machine. If the drivers are not corrupted they should load fine, if they are corrupted then Windows will ask for the original operating system disk.
\015\012All this assumes that your keyboards are electronically working. This last holiday season alot of people brought in their Logitech - Target specials that no longer worked. Seems that if you insert the batteries backwards once the keyboard no longer operates (mouse OK). Never checked in to it too deep.
\015\012Good Luck
