Problem with Microsoft Wireless Optical Desktop keybard
Posted on 2003-03-12
I had both the keyboard and mouse working like a champ until a week ago then the keyboard stopped working all of a sudden. I had been enjoying the wireless freedom and optical bliss for about a month at this point. I use the "when in doubt, reboot" strategy for stuff like this so I rebooted my Windows NT 4.0 Server (SP6a) and woh, the PC started making a noise like there was a key "stuck" on the keyboard. Went with that assumption and made sure no key was stuck. Just for kicks, I removed the batteries from the keyboard and re-started the PC. Same thing, noise right at startup when the computer goes through memory check. So right now, I am using a wired keyboard and just the mouse from the optical wireless package. The rodent is under control and behaving as rodents should. Microsoft support site, Wireless Optical Desktop FAQ and google have not been helpful. Any help appreciated to get the keyboard going ...
