Hardware Drivers :: Restore Keyboard Key Functions?

Jul 1, 2014

I was tinkering with a few keys on my keyboard, changing the default key operations of W, A, S, & D to UP, LEFT, DOWN, & RIGHT. It's a day later and I can't remember how to change it back!

Which setting I can change to have a default keyboard?

I'm running Windows 8.1 64-bit & using a Lenovo ThinkPad

I did download autohotkey & wrote a script altering the function of said keys, but I've since killed the process.

No Keyboard / Mouse After Adding Media Center - Can't Restore System

Oct 27, 2012

I upgraded my H T PC to Windows 8 earlier today. Everything was working fine, no issues with the install right up until I added the Media Center feature. After that installed and rebooted, I have no mouse or keyboard. No mouse cursor, nothing. I've tried different keyboards, different USB ports, everything.

Since, in Microsoft's infinite wisdom they removed the F 8 functionality I can't even get into safe mode to do a system restore. Their solution is "boot into windows and use recovery options to restart into safe mode" - great, so what do I do if Windows has disabled the mouse & keyboard?

I can force it into the basic recovery mode by just resetting it a couple times but it won't let me do a system restore from in there, it is telling me the drive is locked.

What do I do? How else can I get into system restore?

Windows 8.1 Update 1 - Unresponsive Metro Functions?

May 10, 2014

Okay, so I just recently installed my Windows 8.1 Update 1 OS to my PC. It's been going great, most of my favorite apps and games installed and worked perfectly. But I've been getting this bug rather frequently, but don't know from where it all begins.

The OS functions normally at first, but then after I switch from a few metro apps to the desktop, and then back, I lose all control with corner functions. What I mean to say is, the task switcher charms, or the charms bar, or the start button or actually even the ability to close the app by pushing it down... nothing seems to work. The app functions normally and I can use my keyboard to Alt+Tab out of the mess, but this keeps happening.

Windows 8 Metro Apps Lack Basic Functions?

May 24, 2013

Why do the Metro style apps lack so many basic functions?

I've noticed that the Photo app, for example, doesn't allow you to do much other than view images. No share, no crop, no edit features. Nothing.

News cannot share, copy, etc.

Am I just missing these features?

Audio :: Microsoft Music Update - Loss Of Control Panel Functions

Apr 9, 2013

Until earlier today I could 'rewind' 15 seconds on the MS Music Control Panel. Having 'updated' the App this functionality has been lost. You can either rewind to the start or the end. You have to use the slider if you want to rewind less. For transcribing a multi-hour interview that is in .wma format this is now highly inconvenient.

How I can retrieve a 15 second shift button again?

Hardware Drivers :: Not Able To Pair Bluetooth Keyboard

Jan 20, 2014

Every time I try to pair my Bluetooth keyboard in Windows 8.1, I get the error "That didn't work", with the subtext "Try again, and make sure your keyboard is still discoverable."

Given the uselessness of the error message, I don't even know where to start troubleshooting.

Hardware Drivers :: Why Can't Use Keyboard In Advanced Startup

Aug 26, 2013

I have a Microsoft Sidewinder X4 USB keyboard. When I restart Windows 8 using Advanced Startup Mode I get the familiar menu where you have to enter F1-F9 to select an option (or F10 for more options). My keyboard doesn't work, however. I tried pressing all of the F-keys but none of them are recognized.

I am pretty sure it's not a BIOS issue because whenever I do a cold boot I can get into the BIOS by pressing the DEL key so I know the keyboard is recognized by my system. why I can't use my keyboard in Windows 8 Advanced Startup?

Hardware Drivers :: Win 8.1 Keyboard Mapping Sometimes Messed Up After Login

Aug 13, 2014

Lenovo ThinkCentre
Windows 8.1 64-bit pro with Media Centre (installed on SSD)
16BG memory

This is a bit of a weird one. Sometimes (perhaps 1 in 20 boots) after logging into my account, the keyboard mapping is screwed up - for instance, typing 'a' on the keyboard displays 'h' or some other random letter or symbol, most other key mappings are messed up also.

When this first occurred, I enabled the touch keyboard, but found that the screwed mapping matched the USB keyboard. Also tried disconnecting/reconnecting the keyboard and uninstalling/re-installing from Device Manager, but no change.

Sometimes the problem goes away after a few minutes, other times I have to log out or reboot.

I figure that it must be something related to the user account, as it would be impossible to login otherwise.

The machine is fully patched, has the latest 8.1 Intel Chipset updates and a clean bill of health according Norton Internet Security.

Hardware Drivers :: Keyboard Not Working Correctly After Win 8 Install

Oct 27, 2012

my keyboard doesn't work correctly. In most programs and on webpages, the number keys do not work nor do the special characters accessed through the shift key. Sometimes they act like the space bar, other times they repeat the previously typed alpha character.

All works perfectly in MS Word. The numbers on the keypad do work in all programs. I've checked the control panel and can't find any settings that appear to influence this - no accessibility settings, nothing.

Hardware Drivers :: Bluetooth Keyboard No Longer Pairing

Apr 25, 2014

I have to work across three PCs, for which I use a KVM switch. But while I'm on PC 2 or 3 I like to make notes on PC 1, so I use a Bluetooth keyboard and a second monitor which is always on PC1. This has been working fine for weeks.

PC1 is Windows 8.1. Every few days I've had to reconnect the keyboard by going to Bluetooth, detecting it and pairing it again. Windows gave me a code to type into the keyboard and I was away, no problem.

Since Wednesday (23rd) I've been unable to do this. The PC detects the keyboard after a longer search than before. It pairs with the keyboard and says it's connected but the keyboard doesn't work. When I return to the Bluetooth screen, it's gone from the list of devices. I've replaced the keyboard batteries and tested it with my iPad, where it works perfectly well. So my sequence is:

type Bluetooth at Windows home pagesearch for devicesthe keyboard is foundclick Pairwait ...'Enter the passcode for your keyboard; you might need to enter the same passcode into the keyboard'ClickTtry entering a passcode on itcode comes upput it in. 'connecting' then 'Bluetooth 3.0 keyboard connected'; graphic shows still searching for devicesafter close Bluetooth Devices window, keyboard doesn't workReturn to Bluetooth screswitch keyboard off and on, it disappears from devices list

Hardware Drivers :: Windows 8 - Keyboard Does Not Work In Browsers

Jul 12, 2014

1. Keys do not work in Any of the Internet Browsers. Even the on-screen keyboard does not work.

2. Every time I double click a file, A pop-up "Do you want xyz to make changes to the computer ?" is welcoming me!

3, I click on any of the icons in the task-bar and a new window is opening. For example, If I click on the firefox icon pinned at the bottom, Every instance I click it, a new window is opening

4. I am not able to open a folder by double click. I can only open it by right click and then Open

5. None of the keys and keyboard shorcuts seem to work. But that is not the problem with keyboard because, I am able to type words in Wordpad and Notepad

I formatted my Windows 8 twice and still these problems are there. Even if I restart it, things work fine for 5 min and then the problem would be back.

Hardware Drivers :: Laptop Keyboard Slow To Respond On Windows 8?

Dec 5, 2013

My laptop is a Samsung, about 9 months old and has a pretty good spec. Suddenly, over the past few days, I've noticed that the keyboard in lagging whenever I'm logged on. It's fine at the login screen but, once I've logged on the problem occurs - and it happens on all programs. I know that this is specifically an issue with Windows 8, as I have a virtual Ubuntu machine on here that is working fine.

None of the keyboard settings have been altered and no new applications have been installed or upgraded recently.

Hardware Drivers :: Sony SVT11215SG Wireless Keyboard Not Working?

Aug 4, 2014

I recently bought a SVT11215SG - SVT11215SG : VAIO - Tap 11 : VAIO® Notebook & Computer : Sony Malaysia Everything was working great, no issues, upgraded to Windows 8.1 smoothly.

But a few months later, suddenly the wireless keyboard stops working.

I have tried almost everything to get it to work again but nothing has worked so far.

Following are a list of things I have tried:

1. Use the pairing tool. (Got an error saying "Fail to get the dongle handle".

2. Reset the BIOS settings to default.

3. Reinstall Bluetooth and Wireless drivers.

4. Manually remove the drivers from Device Manager and reinstall them.

5. Use the Sony Vaio Care to get the latest updates.

6. Download and install the updates manually.

7. Check Windows Update for any optional updates.

I later found out that the keyboard does not work in BIOS either so I am not sure if it's a hardware issue. But the lights on the keyboard blink as normal when I turn it ON.

Will I really have to reinstall Windows? If yes, is it okay to reinstall Windows on such a tablet PC?

Hardware Drivers :: USB Keyboard And Mouse Not Working After Boot Or Sleep?

May 16, 2014

I have a new Dell Inspiron 2350 windows 8.1 for the last week or so the usb wireless keyboard and mouse do not work when the system is booted or after coming out of deep sleep mode. I have to unplug the usb dongle and plug it in again for them to work.

I have tried different USB port. Dell have even replaced the keyboard and mouse and batteries, same problem.

Hardware Drivers :: Win 8.1 - Logitech K330 Keyboard And Mouse Randomly Freeze

Oct 15, 2013

I have recently upgraded to windows 8. I was previously using a logitech mk320 mouse/keyboard and experiencing the same issues. So I purchased the new K330 setup that is windows 8 compatible, but again same issues. A little less frequently, but same issues.

Basically the keyboard will randomly have a 3 to 15 second delay when typing. To make it worse when it does finally pick up it leaves out letters making it very hard to type anything. Secondly the mouse will also randomly be very choppy. Not completely unresponsive, but skip over large sections of the screen. It's almost like the batteries are dying, but I have replace them 2 times now with fresh ones.

Hardware Drivers :: Registry Way Of Disabling Bluetooth Keyboard Passkey Requirement?

Mar 18, 2012

I have exhausted my efforts to get an answer out of Microsoft's forums regarding the problem with Windows 8's insistence of flashing straight into the Metro Devices page when installing hardware thus precluding the ability to install a Bluetooth keyboard (or other BT device) without a passkey, an essential element of having a functional BT keyboard in each OS of a multi-boot environment.

Where in the registry is the key that can be altered to stop Windows automatically assigning a passkey? I would imagine it's the same in Windows 7 if I only knew where that was!

Hardware Drivers :: Ctrl And Shift Working Simultaneously - Keyboard Error

Mar 10, 2014

I have a keyboard error that is really putting a hamper on my work right now. this started yesterday, but i can't recall when exactly it started happening.

I have a steel series apex keyboard and windows 8 64-bit

When I press either of these four keys, it shows me on my keyboard settings software and on the on-screen keyboard from windows 8 - that all four are being pressed simultaneously

= left-shift, left-ctrl, right-shift, right-ctrl.

It doesn't matter which of the four i press - all four are treated like they're being pressed down. Also if i press alt, it thinks both alts are being pressed. I have tried:

unplugging, plugging back in
restarting my computer
putting keyboard settings to default
uninstalling and reinstalling all keyboard drivers/software
scanning/fixing registry errors

Also I've tried three different keyboards, a logitech g15, and a standard dell keyboard; they all do produce the same error.

Hardware Drivers :: Dell XPS 7100 System - Keyboard And Mouse Not Working?

Jul 18, 2014

No keyboard or mouse by attempting to add safe mode with networking. What is UEFI? Where do I find this USB viewable option as I am connected by USB?

I went to set up (F2 at boot) > and then searched around for anything that relates to USB and found that USB is enabled and on high speed. Hope that is not it and I am missing something, because I still have no mouse or keyboard.

Keyboard and mouse are the ones that came with the Dell XPS 7100 system. I'll try different USB ports and report back...didn't make a difference.
