Hi everyone. I have a HP TouchSmart 320-1030 All in One PC and the the keyboard that has come with it is very nice. I would like to connect this keyboard to my laptop(which has bluetooth btw). I do not know how to connect it because I cannot find a USB dongle in the all-in-one that the keyboard connects to. Please help. I really want to use this keyboard with my other laptop. Thank you.

Hi,

You may need to find an adapter to go between the keyboard connector and the laptop port.

This assumes that the keyboard is designed for a wired connection.

If it is a wireless only setup then you may have a problem getting the keyboard to talk to the laptop.

There might be a bluetooth solution but that's not part of my skill set

Sorry

OK never mind. I have found the adapter. It was hidden under a small flap inside. It was a USB adapter. Thanks for your help regardless
