Have you looked in Device Manager/Keyboards (Right-click My Computer , click Properties , click Hardware/Device Manager) ? Is there an exclamation mark in Keyboards ? If not , expand (click on the + beside Keyboards) and look at the properties for your keyboard ....

hello and thanks for the reply, i had checked earlier in the device manager and ''keyboards'' is not there when my new keyboard was plugged in, which is strange
its there at the moment because im using my current keyboard

standard 101/102-key or microsoft natural ps/2 keyboard

ive tryed to update this driver pointing it in the direction of the installation cd, to no avail :(

btw im running dell deminsions 4600 windows xp

You've probably tried this but if not ... power off , plug in the new keyboard then restart and go to control panel/add hardware and follow the prompts .
