  1. Windows not recognizing keyboard.


    I have a GK61X mechanical keyboard and a custom coiled aviator cable and Windows does not recognize it as a keyboard but can recognize my wireless mouse when I plug it in. I need help.

    Keyboard and mouse not recognized after boot-up!

    Thanks, but how would I be able to do any of the things that you suggest when Windows is not recognizing either my keyboard or my mouse?

    I'll mention that I do intend to purchase a *wired* USB keyboard and mouse today and try them, but I'm not optimistic that they will be recognized by Windows either.

    Microsoft ARC touch mouse USB dongle is recognized as ARC keyboard on windows 10.

    Hi,

    To further isolate the issue with your touch mouse being recognized as keyboard, we'd like to know more information:

    • Is it one USB dongle for the mouse and keyboard?
    • Have you tried any troubleshooting steps to resolve the issue?
    • Did you make any changes to your computer prior to this issue?

    We suggest checking the article below to help you resolve the issue.

    Update a driver for hardware that isn't working properly

    Thank you.

    Keyboard problem in Windows 10

    Hi David,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    I suggest you to check if the issue persists when you connect another keyboard to your system.

    If the issue is with the keyboard, then suggest you to update the keyboard drivers by following the steps below.


    • Press Windows key + X and select
      Device Manager
      from the list.

    • Expand ‘Keyboard’ from the list.

    • Right click on the driver and select ‘update driver software’ and follow the prompts.

    Hope the information is helpful.
