Drivers/Hardware :: Replaced Wired Keyboard With Bluetooth Keyboard - PC No Longer Sleeps?
Nov 21, 2015
I recently got rid of a cabled keyboard in favor of a smaller bluetooth keyboard (MS Mobile 6000). Everything is great except that now, I have a hard time putting my PC to sleep. In fact, it tends to wake up after 30 seconds or so. I'm pretty sure this is due to the BT keyboard.
I have Windows 10 (upgraded from Win 7.1) installed on an iMac on a Bootcamp partition. When I was running Windows 7.1, all the function keys (to control brightness, volume, music playing) worked perfectly. Now under Windows 10 none of them work. And yes, I did go into the setup and try turning on and off the check box for whether or not the keys performed as Function keys with and without holding the FN key. If I go into Bluetooth devices, the keyboard is shown properly as an Apple Bluetooth Keyboard.
Bluetooth keyboard wont pair after windows 10 update? I tried the keyboard on other devices not running windows 10 and used it prior on windows 8.1 without any problems but now on Toshiba laptop and tablet along with an acer desktop all running windows 10 the Bluetooth keyboard wont connect.
It shows up ready to pair then i click pair and enter the numbers it tells me to and press enter then it states its connect for about a minute then just states its paired after that. even if i turn it on and off or Bluetooth on and off it only states its connect for a short time then just goes back to pair but at no time during the time it says its connected does it work. also other Bluetooth audio devices work fine without issue.
I had to reinstall from scratch Windows 10 Enterprise 32-bit on my Dell Venue 8 Pro 32 GB tablet. After the first installation, the Bluetooth keyboard and mouse (both work fine under Windows 8.1), disconnected after 10-12 seconds. However, probably after one of the automatic updates, they started working normally (it took about a day or so).
Now, after the 2nd Windows 10 installation, the problem with Bluetooth keyboard and mouse reappeared. I forced the Windows updates, but no luck.
It's curious because, if I keep the Settings window active, on the Bluetooth page, both the keyboard and the mouse work. If I minimize the Settings window, after about 30 seconds, both devices stop working. If I close the Settings window, or move to a different settings page, both devices stop working immediately.
I have changed the Bluetooth Support Service from Manual to Automatic, but it did not work. Running the Hardware and Devices Troubleshooter did not work either.
Just upgraded to Win 10 this morning, everything was smooth except for one thing: my Logitech Bluetooth keyboard and mouse stopped working. Looks like there's an error with the Broadcom Bluetooth USB driver, which is already the latest and greatest according to Windows, which obviously it ain't. Where to get working drivers? Surprisingly there's nothing about Windows 10 on Broadcom's site??
In the past two days, once I've logged into Windows 10 (successfully with normally-functioning keyboard) I can no longer type anything. The letter keys just produce a click through the speakers. Even stranger, if I hold down a letter key for two clicks then release, it prints the letter. I've tried two different (wireless) keyboards and they both become disabled in the same way. Some of the function keys perform normally. It's just impossible to type. I've never encountered this problem before, and I've been using Windows 10 since the free upgrade earlier this year. I've run a full Windows Defender Scan and also a Malwarebytes Scan.
I upgraded about a month ago. My laptop locked me out entirely shortly after the upgrade so I had to take it to be wiped clean. When I got it back everything was in working order with Windows 10 except the top row of keys that control volume, brightness and the ability to pause, rewind and skip songs now solely does the standard system commands of f1-f10 *caret browsing on/of, find in page, etc* Im not sure if they worked the first time I tried to upgrade because I couldn't even log on to my computer after I upgraded the first time so I reformatted.
Okay, so I take blame for accidentally messing up my Windows 10. My NVIDIA graphics card wasn't working and wasn't letting me install my drivers. Well that aside, now that I installed older Drivers Windows 10 registers something horribly wrong. It wants to do a system repair. Okay, good, fine with me. But then when it gets to the page for me to select a keyboard layout, I have no mouse and my keyboard doesn't work either.
Anytime I press a button on them their backlights turn on, but then turn back off when I don't do anything with them.
I can't afford to get a new OS, I have no DVD Drive so I definitely can't do anything that requires a disk. What do I do?
My question, as stated in the title is how to keep the onscreen keyboard from disappearing every time i start to type eon the physical one. You may wonder why I am doing that but, but it is not for English, I am currently enrolled in an Arabic course at my Uni and i am trying to create online flashcards, since i always end up studying from the comp anyways, plus they're just other ways for me to study.
The problem comes from not having a nice layover like keyboard like they do for macs and having to buy stickers, this is a passed around laptop, I cant do that. I have the Arabic onscreen keyboard but that is mighty slow, having to click and point. Is there any fix to this or is there an Arabic third party onscreen that will do the same thing I'm asking.
I've bought a completely new ASUS VivoPC that comes with these specifications: [URL]....
My problem with this computer is that it will not always wake up from sleep mode, especially during longer sleeps over the night. Normally I press a button and it turns on immediately, but sometimes my keyboard and mouse refuse to respond and my computer sleep indefinitely until I press the power button behind the PC. I know that the computer is still sleeping because the strip of light in front of the computer starts blinking every time I put it to sleep, and there is no change in its behavior when it won't startup normally. After booting it up it puts me right where I was before putting it to sleep like nothing happened.
I have updated windows 10, BIOS and all my drivers except for the newest GeForce drivers because version 355 and 358 gives me a BSOD (Driver Power State Failure) that loops on startup indefinitely. The only way to fix it is to revert back to 353 through safe mode or use system restore point. I have already written an extensive post about it here for more details: [URL]....
I have also tried formatting my PC several times, but the problem still persists even on a brand new install. The PC is only two weeks old so I should still have my warranty in check. Despite the two problems I really like the PC. I have other VivoPC's that works perfectly, but they do not have both intel and NVIDIA graphic drivers. So I have been suspecting that these cards conflict somehow.
My Windows key on the keyboard is not working. I have run through the sfc scannow and the dism repairs and such and it claims everything is working. I did a clean reboot of Windows 10 (Education) and the problem still persists.
Looking at the keyboard driver (Thermal Challenger Gaming Prime), it doesn't seem to register that the left window's button works for anything at all. Attempting to press the button on the keyboard yields no response even if I attempt to bind that key to something else. I doubt it is hardware as using this keyboard on my laptop works perfectly fine. The laptop is running windows 8 however.
When pressing on the windows button in the left corner of my screen, everything works fine. Left clicking pulls up everything normally and right clicking provides a list of options that seems to be standard for a functioning computer.
All the drivers are installed properly according to the Windows settings and looking at each of the drivers, they are all up to date according to their manufacturer. This is a custom computer that I recently built. It has no prior Operating systems or files and Windows 10 Education was installed on it through the Media Creation Tool on a bootable USB.
I resurrected my old HP DV5-1044CA. I did a fresh Windows 10 install. Strangely when the laptop sleeps or if I put it to sleep with the power button or by closing the lid, I can wake it with the keyboard or power button and use the keyboard to enter my PIN but after that the keyboard no longer works. I have to restart to get the keyboard working again.
I have a Anitech P201RU keyboard and when I boot my PC the keyboard works fine until the login screen. I have tried turning on legacy in bios and turning it off and tried uninstalling the drivers. What I noticed is that when I go into device manager it shows a exclamation mark next to the usb composite device.
After I installed Windows 10 from windows 7 I couldn't use my mouse and keyboard it works when I boot up BIOS Utility but when im on windows 10 it does not work. I tried switching usb ports and that didn't work either.
I use a wireless mouse and keyboard. Every now and then, often enough to be irritating, the keyboard fails to function: the mouse works properly. The keyboard problem persists for a few minutes, after which it works again. There is no discernable pattern to this problem.
The keyboard batteries are not responsible for the failure.
I don't know if this problem is caused because of latest Windows 10 update or not, but lately I noticed when I turn on my PC, or even restart, my keyboard (Corsair K70) gets turned off, while my mouse still working fine. This is the period after bios & logo, when both keyboard & mouse are turned off & then mouse gets turned on again on logon, but my keyboard doesn't. I need to re-plug it to get it working again. They both are connected via USB ports. In device manager also everything is all right, no errors or anything like that. I tried to update driver via device manager. It said "latest driver is already installed".
Dell computer, W 10, is four days old and it suddenly stops communicating with the desktop. Logitech mouse still active and moves around on screen, but there are no letters written. Microsoft updates made no difference. switches are on and batteries new.
I have been looking for the drivers for this keyboard. The sites I have found are con artists. Download our program to find your driver. Now, pay up or you cant have it.Cant seem to find it on MS at all ??
I have two desktops using a single keyboard, monitor and mouse via a KVM device. One desktop is running Windows 7 but I've just upgraded the other from Windows 8 to Windows 10.
All was 100% well on both machines before the upgrade. The Windows 7 machine is still fine (as you'd expect!) but on the Windows 10 machine hitting the key on the keyboard has no effect whatsoever. On Windows 10 set up I chose "UK keyboard" as usual; I think I've always done whenever I've loaded any version of Windows.
(The sharper ones amongst you will have realised that I'm typing this on the Windows 7 machine!!!)
In device manager, when going to the view tab and clicking show hidden devices I have exclamation points next to Standard PS/2 Keyboard and Microsoft PS/2 Mouse. I can uninstall, but after reboot they appear again. My motherboard does not even have PS/2 outlets, only USB.
I have downloaded and installed the latest intel chipset drivers 10.1.2.10. The errors showed up before and after the chipset update.
After running perfmon /report I get errors for both of these.
After I uninstall both of these in device manager and run perfmon /report I do not get the errors, however they reappear after a re-boot.
