Hi, Well first of all my logitech keyboard isn't working but the mouse is.
The computer is detecting the keyboard but no keystrokes are registering...
HELP!

(Sorry about being brief but i'm typing with the On-Screen Keyboard *shudder*)
:tazz:

*Update* Both the keyboards i tried were Logitech and neither worked on two seperate computers but after trying a HP i am able to type again... As i said i've reinstalled the drivers and now i'm stuck on what to do... to get my logitech to work... :)
HELP!

the older logitech is a ps2 (http://www.logitech....,contentid=6058)
While the hp keyboard that works is a usb

I've checked the bios and the settings for PS/2 are already set on [Auto]. I also tried [Enabled] but still no go.
Also the USB logitech used to work but ever since yesterday is just not responding.

It could be the drivers... because the usb wireless hp works... except their up-to-date and the mouse works...


Also to clarify the Logitech MX700 has been working for... 363 days :tazz:
Logitech MX700 (http://www.logitech....,contentid=9696)
Logitech iTouch (http://www.logitech....,contentid=6058)

Go into Device manager and see if there is anything in there with a yellow or red mark beside it..

Is there a USB heading in Device Manager??

Also, under what heading did you find the PnP BIOS Extension?? Just checked mine and there is no such thing!!

Yes and the keyboard is showing as 'keyboard is plugged in'
While PnP Bios Extension, in my case... is a part of Daemon Tools 4.0 and it had an error because D-Tools isn't running.

*Edit* Ummm... after removing the batteries for 24 hours and taking the hp driver from the Study computer. The keyboard works... :tazz:

Well... if anything else happens i'll holla =)
