    So I came home yesterday from work and my computer won't boot up without entering setup. I figure I have a virus, well I need to know where to get a virus killer or some free shit to fix this damn computer. Anyway I got it all set up yesterday so that it was workin all night.


    So I come home today and my fucking keyboard won't work. I uninstalled and reinstalled all the drivers, updated through Dell, restarted and restarted the computer and the keyboard won't work. I plugged it into a USB port, into the keyboard port, back and forth, restart and restart. Nothing.

    So after an hour and a half, I plugged my old logitech keyboard in, restarted and it came right up. It's not in the computer, USB/keyboard slot, or wireless remote thing, but it's in the goddamn keyboard itself. Fresh batteries didn't have any effect either. Could I have a bad keyboard?? :angry: :angry:

    I had a computer that would only use the USB for the keyboard....But then again, the motherboard was shit and the whole computer was cheaply made, but I wanted a fast computer for under $200...well it wasn't fast but faster than a 486....

    because I sit about 20 feet from my computer sometimes and that way I can still type and watch tv or do other things without having to be sitting 2 inches from my big ass 19" monitor.

    Very truthful. Sounds like its definitely the keyboard. Should be under warranty of some kind. I would send it back, and they should refurbish it for you.

    if you have another computer, install the drivers for the wireless keyboard and see if it works on that, that'll tell you if its the keyboard or not
