Make sure the usb receiver is plugged into main usb port straight into mobo, if it is already try plugging it into different port in another pair on back of machine and reboot hopefully windows will reinstall the usb and may kick back into life

If not try booting up in safe mode as it may be conflicting with another usb driver, have you plugging anything new in lately

How about entering device manager and removing keyboard under HID devices so no keyboard then reboot and plug back in ??? Don't know just trying to chuck some ideas out

Just because it works fine on others doesn`t mean it works fine on your pc. Get another, they are cheap and you can always take it back.

Pauly`s suggestion is a good 1.

Okay device manger first it says device is working propley. I un install and remove reboot and I don't even get a light on keyboard. Found new boxed keyboard in loft same old routine. Nout. I'm still cautious of the reg. all other devices have upper and lower limits but not the keyboard.

Thanks guys
