    Please help, I'm about to lose my mind and cannot find an answer to this one...

    I currently have an old, cheap, wired Logitech keyboard and mouse that I'm using. Both of these work fine, and are detected when I check in the device manager. They were plug-and-play when I installed them, no installation disc or drivers, etc. This is probably the 4th or 5th keyboard I've owned and used on this computer. The keyboard is seriously on its last legs...two (non-vital) keys are missing, and the power cord now apparently has a short, because unless it's held in JUST the right position, the board stops getting power.

    I bought a replacement keyboard, also a wired Logitech...brought it home, plugged it in, installed, but then the computer didn't recognize it and it didn't show up in the device manager. There are no device drivers available for it at the Logitech site.

    I gave up and bought a second keyboard, a wired Microsoft, that came with an installation disc. Installed it...same thing. Doesn't recognize, doesn't show up in device manager.

    I bought a THIRD keyboard and mouse combo, very nice wireless Logitech USB set. Installed them...still no go. Installed but not recognized, doesn't show up in device manager. I tried switching the USB chip to different ports but it didn't make any difference, and there are other USB devices running without any bugs.

    I could understand if NO keyboard AT ALL would work on my system, but what would make ONLY my current keyboard work, but no other keyboard of any kind? If the drivers to run keyboards weren't there or were corrupted, then my current one shouldn't work, should it? I did place a call to Logitech but they were no help whatsoever...

    Have you tried using them as ps2 keyboards.Some keyboards usually come with that type connector. Try one of those connectors and plug it into the back of the tower where the keyboard symbol is at and see if that works.

    Thanks, BirdMaster. Before I do that, is there a risk that doing it will mess up my BIOS or cause my system to crash? I'm terrified of doing something major to it that will not be reversible...

    I tried DriverMax but it would only allow 2 downloads, and I couldn't tell which ones I needed most. I did visit the Intel website and used a utility there to check out my drivers, and Intel said my chipset drivers were up to date. After Googling this problem a bit more, I found a suggestion to turn off the computer and unplug it completely for a while to reset the motherboard... I did that, but still no good.

    The USB receiver shows up in the device manager under "other devices" as "USB Receiver" but no drivers are installed and the manufacturer is "unknown".

    I tried plugging in the new Logitech wired board and it showed up in "other devices" but was also unknown with no drivers (and it appears the board received no power, as the lights on it didn't light up).

    I plugged the old Logitech wired board back in, and it works. It shows up under "keyboards" as "HID Keyboard Device".

    Any ideas?

    Yes, please!

    When I plug in the USB receiver, the computer detects it as new hardware and pops up the installation screen, but can't install it because it can't find the drivers, and then it shows up only as "USB Receiver" under "other devices" in the device manager. The old wired keyboard is working and is properly detected, but is so fragile at this point that I can never MOVE it, for fear that the power will go down on it and I won't be able to move the cord "just right" to get it back up again.

    Ok please go to the link below and select your xp version download the file for your xp version save it to your desktop.
    you will want to download the default xp of your os.
    http://www.blackviper.com/2008/06/16/windows-xp-service-pack-3-services-registry-files/

    Run the file saved to your desktop.Then run sfc /scannow.




    Then please run sfc /scannow.
    sfc /scannow


    Go Start and then to Run ("Start Search" in Vista),
    Type in: sfc /scannow
    Click OK (Enter in Vista).
    Have Windows CD/DVD handy.
    If System File Checker (sfc) finds any errors, it may ask you for the CD/DVD.
    If sfc does not find any errors in Windows XP, it will simply quit, without any message.
    In Vista you will receive the following message: "Windows resource protection did not find any integrity violations".

    For Vista users ONLY: Navigate to C:\Windows\Logs\CBS folder. You'll see CBS.log file.
    Usually, it's pretty big file, so upload it to UploadMB.com - Free File Hosting, Upload unlimited files, Simple and Easy. 100% Free , and post download link.


    If you don't have Windows CD....
    This applies mostly to Windows XP, since Vista rarely requires use of its DVD while running "sfc"
    Note This method will not necessarily work as well, as when using Windows CD, because not always ALL system files are backed up on your hard drive. Also, backed up files may be corrupted as well.

    Go Start and then Run
    type in regedit and click OK


    Navigate to the following key:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Setup

    You will see various entries Values on the right hand side.

    The one we want is called: SourcePath

    It probably has an entry pointing to your CD-ROM drive, usually D and that is why it is asking for the XP CD.
    All we need to do is change it to: C:
    Now, double click the SourcePatch setting and a new box will pop up.
    Change the drive letter from your CD drive to your root drive, usually C:
    Close Registry Editor.

    Now restart your computer and try sfc /scannow again!


    After completing sfc /scannow please visit windows updates.Reboot your machine after installing all updates and see if you can now use the keyboard.
