I think my brother has managed to lock his keyboard somehow. I've tried changing the batteries and resyncing it. Nothing....the only button that seems to work is the F Lock (function) button, and I know this due to the little green light that indicates that the F Lock is on (there is one for each the NUM & CAPS buttons that do not come on). He's had the board for about 2 years with no problem and now this. The wireless mouse is working fine. I went through the settings and accessibility and none of the sticky keys or anything like that are turned on. I've unplugged it and no luck. Anyone help me out? Thanks!

Your keyboard seems to have lost it's initial connection with the wireless USB (Universal Serial Bus) receiver plugged into your computer therefore causing the encryption to activate, locking your keys.
  • Hold down CTRL + ALT on the left hand side of your keyboard. While holding down these keys together press the F12 key.

  • Once you have held down all three of these keys all together you will let them go all at once. This is after you have held them down for approximately 5 seconds.

  • Next step is to reconnect the small black USB Receiver with the keyboard. You will press a small red/black connect button located on the receiver. This connect button is often really small and often mistaken as a reset button.

  • Once you have located the connect button on the receiver press it once and let go (Do not, I repeat, do not hold this button down). Flip the keyboard over to its backside. On its backside, you should notice a red connect button or a on/off switch. If you are one of the ones with a switch then turn the keyboard off then back on again. If not then continue as followed. Once you have located either one you will press the button once then let go.
Once you complete those steps, begin to test your keyboard. If it still does not work, try these steps once more.
