  1. Wired/Wireless Keyboard Stop Working Randomly! Only Windows Button can function! Can't type!


    I have been having this issue where the keyboards just stopped working. and only the windows button, ESC buttons are working. But i can't type or anything on the PC. Initially I thought it was because of wireless. So i tried 3 different keyboards. Wired, Bluetooth and Wireless with USB Receiver. Both Razer and Logitech experience the same issues, all using different ports when I did the tests. Thus this proves that it has something to do with my PC. What can I do to solve this?Also, this happens randomly, usually only solved with a restart.

  2. Wired Keyboard and Mouse Stop Working - Windows 10

    Wired Keyboard and Mouse Stop Working - Windows 10
    I have an old Dell Studio that is running windows 10 ---

    Ir has Windows 10 and SSD installed - to me it does what it needs to do but this darn mouse and keyboard stuff stopping working with no rhyme or reason is making me very frustrated.

    Keyboard and Mouse are wired - NOT WIRELESS

    • I cannot easily unplug and plug in the mouse/keyboard to get it going again... they are still lit up but they are dead basically and I have to do a hard reset.
    • USB selective suspend is disabled.
    • I checked the drivers for the keyboard and mouse and they are updated.
    • I checked to see if PC has KB4074588 and it does not.

    I am not sure what else to do.... I can go days without the issue and then days where anytime I step away from the PC it stops working.

    I can say when it is working it just does not just stop ... only when I walk away and the machine is idle or the screen is locked.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Wired/Wireless Keyboard Stop Working Randomly! Only Windows Button can function! Can't type!

    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.
