  1. On new computer wireless keyboard works for password but not for required PIN set up!


    I got a new computer with Win10 on it. After fighting the screen resolution I had full access. Today I turn it on and it asked for Microsoft password. Then it said I had to type a pin. My wirless keyboard worked fine with the password but not the PIN. The numbers work but not the letters. Now what do I do? I don't have another keyboard.

    :)

  2. Wireless keyboard not working

    Hi Arthur,

    Thank you for your response.

    I suggest you to connect the keyboard to a different computer and check if it works.

    Apart from wireless keyboard, I would also suggest you to connect wired keyboard to the computer and check the status.

    If issue still persists, try the steps provided below and check if it helps.

    Check in compatibility mode.

    Download the keyboard drivers from your computer manufacture website for Windows 10.

    Follow these steps to install the drivers in compatibility mode and check if that helps.

    • Download the driver from the manufacturer’s website.
    • Right-click on the driver setup file and click on ‘properties’.
    • Click on the ‘compatibility’ tab and check the box ‘Run this program in compatibility mode for’ and select Windows 8 operating system from the drop down menu and proceed
      with the installation.
    • Once this is done, restart the computer and check if the issue persists.

    Hope the information helps, if you have any further queries, feel free to post. We are here to assist you.

    Need a new wireless keyboard - suggestions?

    This is a for work - not gaming!

    My work keyboard is a wireless logitech, lasted some 6 years and now has a case of sticking keys, so I need a new one. I really liked it, thought the key action isn't the greatest. It has been through millions of keystrokes.

    I have a G5 gaming mouse (both work and home), I want to keep that.

    So I'm looking for:

    • Wireless and responsive
    • (USB and PS2 capable)
    • Assignable hot keys
    • Dedicated volume and playback buttons
    • Great feel (for lots of typing)
    • Intergrated wrist-wrest
    • Black (nice not to see gunk that builds up)
    • Under $100
    Anyone have any "passionate" suggestions? I plan to stop at staples to try some out. I am partial to Logitech.

  4. On new computer wireless keyboard works for password but not for required PIN set up!

    Setting PIN to default without changing password

    Hello,

    My computer was previously set to a default PIN but that changed suddenly for no apparent reason (I wasn't fooling around in settings or anything security related). I can't get it to revert back to the PIN being the default choice for login. Other forum
    threads suggest removing that password but that is impossible. If you click change, it REQUIRES you to type in a new password and there is no option to remove or delete the password.

    Furthermore, I use that password on my other computer rather than the PIN and don't want to delete it in the first place. So how can I set the PIN back to default?
