Date and time lost is probably the cmos battery flat. Replace the battery, probably a 2032.

Try the F Lock key on many models its a dual function key,although IMO thats so lame especially if your trying to boot a nuked computer and want to go into safe mode or other options.

In Windows, the print screen key actually transfers a copy of what ever you have on your screen to the "scratch pad" of your machine, then you can transfer that copy to an internal program such as "Word" (If you have Word Installed") You will not see anything until you transfer, by getting up the program, and then hitting the key Ctrl+V or going to Edit up in the left corner of the program, and selecting "Paste"

when i go into keyboard properties there is no 'key settings' option

Microsoft... | Answered on Feb 26, 2010

I had the same problem. I just could not get the "Alt-F4" function to work in a macro.

In the Macro Editor, in the lower center, you will see the "Z" actions. I realized I wanted the "Press and hold Z" function.

To get this, use "Inserting Special..." function to insert the Alt key stroke in the macro.

Then highlight the Alt in the Editor. Right Click and select "Split."

This will put the "Press and hold Z key" and "Release Z key" icons in the Editor.

What you want is the "Press and hold" function. Delete any other references the the Alt key.

Then enter the F4 key, and there you have it.

Hope this all makes sense to you.

Normal 0 Assuming that you have good batteries installed, turn the Keyboard over and locate the small reset/connect button on the back of the keyboard and press it. Then try to see if it is working. If not try pressing the button on the receiver and then on the keyboard. Try typing, should work okay.
Hope this helps. Bud

Unless you have the patience and know-how to tear it apart and clean it all up I would say you would save a lot of money on aspirin by getting a new one. Almost every one I've seen taken apart for something like this ends up with loose keycovers which sometimes jam against each other and do not allow the key to actually strike the sensor so spell-checker is a constant companion with them.

If you use Vista click Start, Programs, Accessories, Ease of Access, then Magnifier. You should be able to find the Disable from there.

Hit the long gray button on the right side of the mouse once. That will remove the magnification.

then maybe you need to pop out all the keys that are not on the right place... (for me it's not fun =)

you can also just buy a keyboard if you don't want to do that

What I would suggest is reinstalling the keyboard software from Microsoft. This is better than resettnig the defaults as it will mend any issues the keyboard software is causing, which is probably the case. When you go to Control Panel and uninstall the keyboard software. that is to say you do this once you have the CD or have downloaded the latest software version from micosoft.com/downloads You may find that when you click on the keyboard software to uninstall it in Add Remove that there is another option titled Repair, if so, choose that and let the OS repair the installation.

Kind Regards,

it depends what system you are running cetain programs and windows operating systems dont accept this shortcut

try going into controll panel clik keyboard and make sure hot keys are on

the only other reason is if you have eny other wireless functions running these can disrupt the signal from the keyboard to the computer turn off all wireless items and try agen

if none of these work try replacing the keyboard as it should work as long as hotkeys are on and the operating system you have accepts this function
