Logitech Cordless Keyboard stopped working, only under Win X

by belfast-biker / September 3, 2005 10:10 PM PDT

I have a "Cordless Mouseman Optical" and "Logitech Cordless Keyboard".

Both work fine under Linux (and indeed in GRUB/DOS/BIOS) - I'm posting this from Ubuntu.

But under WinXP, the keyboard no longer works - tried removing drivers, reinslling CD, downloading new drivers, leaving bateries out, connect button many times, but as soon as I press a key on the keyboard, even the mouse freezes up. The computer is still fine - if I plug in my handheld, windows connects to it etc.

Anyone seen this before?

Gettin' desperate!

Cheers for the reply!

Yeah, tried that, but the fact remains that this keyboard works fine on the same compute under linux, so it's unlikely to be a hardware/capacitor problem IMHO.

More - There is an I/O conflict - both use 0060 and 0064 in the I/O range - any way round this? I've uninstalled and reinstalled both mouseware and itouch.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
