Understandable. I didn't realize you were using that computer. Power it off then restart it. Either bookmark this page or save this link to get back to me.

Since your system is a touch screen, you may have disabled the keyboard in favor of the virtual on screen keyboard. That is why I need to what version of Windows you are using please?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
win 10 - been there since 2015
Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.

Okay thank you. Try this. Click Start, Settings, then select Ease of Access. Select Keyboard and check the On-Screen Keyboard option. If it is on, turn it off.

When you press the connect button on the keyboard, are you holding it down for several seconds?

Okay one last thing to try if you would please. Remove the USB receiver then restart the computer. After it is fully restarted, insert the receiver into the USB port and within 30 seconds, press the connect button on the keyboard.

Sounds like a plan. The only thing I can think of is the keyboard has failed? Here is the link to request a refund. Have a nice day!

I was asked to respond as to why want my deposit back. In short, I did not get advice tat resulted in resolving my keyboard malfunction. Therefore no satisfaction. I took my system to a computer store. There fee to look at it exceeded the cost of a replacement keyboard. I bought a new keyboard. That was my idea not the Just Answers. Dan is no doubt competent, but he did not solve the problem. Please release the deposit (not a month from now) or I'll file a complaint with Visa and cancel payment. I will also tell the world.about your satisfaction guaranteed fraud if you hold my money hostage.
Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.

Actually the last thing I indicated was I thought your keyboard may have failed? I will submit your request for a refund. Thank you for your patience.

Thank you.
