After installing Windows 8 over Windows 7 on a Dell computer all worked well except for the Logitech wireless keyboard. When the shifted number keys were struck they printed an ASCII letter rather than their normal character. I substituted a USB keyboard with the same result. I have found no way to make the shifted number keys work correctly on this computer with Windows 8 installed. After restoring Windows 7, all worked correctly again. Am I alone with this problem? I would like to reinstall Windows 8.
Just updated from windows 7 to 8, on a Mac using bootcamp. Now my logitech wireless keyboard won't work - windows seems to recognize it but I can't type anything. My wireless mouse is being recognized and works fine. Can't find any updates or fixes on any site, including logitech.
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.
I just bought my new PC, and i got a problem with it: My Logitech K350 Wireless Keyboard randomly stops responding or sending keystrokes to the PC, its likes it lags or disconnects randomly, its very weird. I installed latest drivers, did plug in/out the receiver from different ports to others with no luck.
I have an Asus laptop running Windows 8.1. I have an hdmi cable connected to my tv with a wireless logitech keyboard and mouse. Is there anyway to turn the laptop without opening the lid by using the keyboard? I have searched and people suggested getting some external button which I am not looking for while others suggest hibernating the laptop which is also not an option as I use it only few times a week.
so, windows thought it would be great to drop any information on my apple wireless keyboard, it just up and disappeared from bluetooth, and when i try to re-pair it, all i get is the it didn't work error, and that i should try again, but when i try to pair it again, windows doesn't see the keyboard, it just becomes invisible, can't pair, if i restart, windows sees the keyboard, but same process (error during pair, keyboard disappears) i'm guessing i can't use it now, unless there's something i'm not doing right?
I have a wireless keyboard and mouse (combo) plugged into my netbook (acer aspire one 522) and can't get the netbook to wake from sleep mode with either of them when the lid is closed (i always keep it closed other than this for this workaround).
I had set the power options to 'do nothing' when the lid is closed (only for when it's plugged in), and when i try to wake from sleep, the power and WLAN lights on the netbook flash whenever i move the mouse or press keys but nothing else. i have to open the lid, then press a key to wake from sleep, then i close the lid again. i checked Power Management settings for both keyboard and mouse and they both have the check box ticked for 'Allow this device to wake the computer'.
I have a wireless keyboard with no light that tells you when caps lock is on. I have found where I can customize my task bar to show the "HP LED Indicator" on the task bar. When you click on that, it shows you whether caps lock, num lock and scroll lock are turned on. But it disappears after about 5 seconds. I want something that turns on and stays on when I hit caps lock (usually accidentally, because this new keyboard has really low profile keys compared with my old one and I'm constantly hitting the wrong keys!!!!!). I don't want to be clicking something to see the status, I just want to see at a glance!
HP told me it's not possible to have that, but thought I'd check here too, on the Windows side of things...

I recently clean installed the 64-bit version of Windows 8 on my computer. The software I use on a daily basis works properly on it, but I do have a question about one thing.
I have a couple of old Logitech e-mail videos. (They're at least a dozen years old, possibly a little older. They're in Logitech's proprietary format, to the best of my knowledge, and cannot be converted to AVI or some other video format.)
Ever since installing the 64-bit version of Windows 8, I cannot play these files. They have played properly on the 32-bit version, as well as previous versions of Windows.
I've tried troubleshooting it and using various compatibility modes, with no success. So, how I can play these files.
I have a toshiba satellite p75-a7200 with windows 8. When I hook up my logitech z 2300 speakers it sounds like crap. Logitech z 2300 speakers are very good speakers so this should not be happening. When I hook up my logitech z 2300 speakers to my iphone or my old dell laptop it sounds good like it should. So this makes me think that their is a Windows 8 setting that is messing up my speakers. What settings in Windows 8 do I need to change my make my speakers sound good?
In Windows 7 and Windows 8, I was able to tether a Nokia phone to my Thinkpad X220 through the creation of an ad-hoc wireless network on the phone. The phone cannot create an infrastucture wireless network like iPhones and androids do so this is my only way to tether.
It seems that in the Windows 8.1 Preview upgraded from the windows store, I can no longer see ad-hoc networks in the list of wireless networks to connect to. If RTM of 8.1 restored this feature? If not, is it possible to restore the feature somehow?
I cannot connect to my wireless anymore (all other devices in my home do) since windows has automatically installed the drivers for my canon printer.
In PC setting i do not have the button wireless anymore (i am pretty sure that i had it last week). Wi-Fi (Qualcomm Atheros AR964x) is in my network connections, but cannot connect. Diagnoses says problem with wireess adapter or access point.
So what did i do until now : I have restarted the whole interne installation ( rounter, and all other devices) many times Atheros driver is up to date and device status is "working properly"
i dont know anymore what to do more (except switching to linux and not being able to use some commerical software i rely on for my work) :-(
Installed windows 8 on blank HD. Version was enterprise. Went through installation process, then discover that the wireless adaptor (laptop, built in) wasn't being recognized FULL stop by windows. I tried a few things. In the device manager, the wireless adaptor is not shown. However, after updating the device list, it shows one unknown device.
I looked through the preloaded drivers for wireless devices, but all of them were for USB ethernet/wireless adaptors, which as I recall from my previous installation of windows was not the type of driver that the device was using. I've also gone through the automates troubleshooting, etc, but nowhere is it even acknowledged that the device is even there. Now, my initial thinking is that it is indeed something to do with the drivers, but I'm not sure if I can find the needed ones. I'll upload more detailed information about my setup if it would be useful.
In the previous versions of Windows you could see the list of wireless networks you had previously connected to, change the order in which these Preferred Networks connected when more than one of them were available, as well as add or remove the Preferred Networks from this list. You could do so via Control PanelNetwork and InternetManage Wireless Networks.
But in Windows 8, unfortunately this feature is unavailable
It can be done manually in the cmd by these commands
Show Wireless Networks
netsh wlan show profiles
Show stored key for a Wireless Network
netsh wlan show profiles name=[profile name] key=clear
Delete Stored Wireless network
netsh wlan delete profile name=[profile name]
Or Third party software can be used to do so such as
I'm using Lenovo Z570 laptop. (Broadcom 802.11n Network Adapter)
Problem:- Can't switch on wifi. The on/off switch is grayed out. While troubleshooting, it says, " wireless capability is turned off".
Solutions Tried:- Re-installed drivers provided by lenovo's website. Re-installed drivers by windows update. Reset settings in Bios to default values. Yes the physical switch is on and the indicator light is glowing. Fn+ F5 just toggles on/off airplane mode. Disabled the option so that power management doesn't switches off wifi to save battery. Other numerous solutions on internet.
The wifi worked flawlessly in windows 7. I even used it as a hotspot (via cmd method).
I have problem wit limited wireless connectivity on my laptop (Samsung) but also on my iPhone 4 and my wife`s LG optimus 5 duo all at the same time. I changed yesterday my router speedport which performed wireless connectivity problems, with a same one- and the problem is actually the same.For every 30 minutes I have limited access on my laptop, iPhone 4 and LG 5. If i restart the router it is OK for a while, and then again the same story. Someone told me to switch off wireless option on both phones, which made connectivity normal on my Samsung laptop.
I repeated, I changed two routers and the problem persists.
I have a Lenovo Ideapad Y500 laptop running Windows 8.1. i7, 8BG ram, 2GB Nvidia card--all that stuff. It ran perfectly for nearly a year. But now, the local area network is broken. I haven't done anything different or changed anything that would affect it, as far as I know. But now that it's summer, I have lots of free time but I can not lan any games with people, which sucks. So I googled and googled, tried the netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt (or whatever it is), tried ipconfig resets and stuff, and none of that works. The wireless lan adapter Media State is still "Media disconnected."
I took this screenshot AFTER I did OneKey Recovery (which is a factory reset). It set my computer back to the original settings: Windows 8, full of bloatware, etc. I did this reset last night, updated it, updated it to Windows 8.1, updated Windows 8.1, and finally, before I went to bed, tested the LAN. It worked, I was able to connect to my Dad's Minecraft world. So I set my laptop to start re-downloading my games (reset deleted all my data), and when I opened it up this morning to play Minecraft with my family, the LAN was not working again. I couldn't connect (or even find) the lan games.
I have a Wireless Presenter. It comes with a USB receiver and the presenter device. No driver software or any app provided. Simple plug-n-play and works fine on my PC. I need an app to configure the device...a Software (which will work in Win-8 64 bit) that will allow me to customize the control keys of the Presenter. Meaning via that software I can configure the vol up control of the presenter to fast forward a movie playing on my PC.
Just setup a N router, works OK with Laptop with Win 8, but unable to connect with Win 8 Desktop. Have entered router keys OK but nothing pops up to click to connect. Been into (Settings) then (Change PC Settings), but no Wireless tab in setting. Type in wireless, PC checks (No wireless). I have Win 8 Disk, can I load wireless driver from Disk if yes how.
I just got a network usb adapter for my new Windows 8 built PC. In the devices area of the control panel it shows the network adapter as installed, and working. However, when I got to PC Settings there are no wireless settings shown, and unlike my other computers around the house I can't find my network or any other networks which is very stranger since I live in an apartment and I'm surrounded by like 20 different networks.
Basically what i want it to do is when i connect to WiFi i would like it to turn off the mobile broadband adapter, and once its off the WiFi to re-connect to the mobile. if this is possible i cant find anything about it anywhere ...
With windows 7 i was able to do this by going to network settings and all of that and had no issues. Now with windows 8 I plug in my cable but it says the device is an unidentified network an I cannot figure out how to alter these settings.
I always wonder how actually does Wireless ISP's differentiate users, as far as I can think of, they work somehow like local Wi-fi networks in which we are connected to the same router. In our home networks, our router differentiates the users/clients with their MAC address and internal IP addresses.
But, this must be different for Wireless ISP's as we can use different PC's any time.
Problem with Windows 8.1 on December 31st, and then I found a video on youtube with the same problem.
I couldn't see any wireless connections and my sound didn't work no matter what. So I ended up having to factory reset my computer. Sucks. It happened again later, but I system restored that crud and it was restored. It ever happens again without any system restore points that I can use.
