Windows 7: keyboard doesnt work!

It should have come with a manual, did you read it? Also the software, is it installed? If so, you need to launch the application, and specifically assign certain tasks to each key. Some may already function as soon as the software is installed, but something like "email" you'll need to setup manually.

If you don't have the actual, physical manual, go to the manufactuers website, and there should be a manual in *.pdf, ie Adobe Reader.

Also there should be a help function within the software, if in fact you've installed it.

I know exactly why your specialized keys aren't working, they need the driver to tell Windows how the hardware operates.

Hope that helps. It should certainly streamline as well with Windows 7 as it did with Vista. Reply or PM for more help, this is an old and beaten thread.

Peace

Thank you for the reply. I purchased a Hp Pavilion s3120n computer
two years ago and it came with this keyboard. My OS at that time was Vista Home Prem. This week I had Windows 7 Pro installed. This was a clean install, the tech wiped my disk clean and then installed the new OS. My keyboard is a HP KB-0630 ps2. I think you call it a plug and play. The keys that don't work are the eject, E-mail, search and help. All the keys worked until I installed windows 7. I tried another ps2 keyboard and same problem. Can not locate any software at the HP site. Thank You.
