    keyboard failure

    I don't remember posting this, but if so....regrets for the duplicate)

    i initally started working with Access on a hp AOI. no problems(except in my head). Then I got a new Dell Inspiron 7700 AOI. It comes with a wireless keyboard and wireless mouse..


    The problem is that so far ONLY WHILE WORKING IN ACCESS the kboard will unexpectedly become non-operating. I have replaced the Dell Kbd with the USB HP KBd and it persists in happening. When in access I can go into notepad and all is well.


    Anyone else have this kind of problem????????? thanks....

    mine does that occasionally. I jiggle (or re-seat) the usb 'dongle' and it works again.

    If the common factor is the USB slot you are using, it could be the naughty child.

    Try either the dongle or the keyboard in another USB port.
