Encountering problems with your keyboard? Here are some of the most common causes as well as what you can do to fix them.
• One of the causes of keyboard problems is an improper connection. Improper connection can be fixed by reconnecting your keyboard then restarting your computer.
• If the keyboard still doesn’t work after you reconnect it, then connection is not the problem. Turn off your computer, unplug the keyboard, and then check for bent or broken pins. Straighten the bent pins gently with the help of a ball point pen or a pencil. If the pins are broken, it’s time to get a replacement.
• Another method you can try is updating your device driver. Visit the manufacturer’s site for the latest drivers available for your keyboard maker and model.
• While you’re at the website, see if there are software updates available for your keyboard. If there are any, install them as well.
• If you are using a multimedia type keyboard, be sure to remove the software before installing any new drivers for this type of keyboard.
