This christmas i got a G15 keyboard, i installed it and all went well until about a week ago when it suddenly stopped working after a restart.
I have conformed it is not a faulty keyboard since it works on other computers except mine.
Even without drivers the keyboard should still light up and type, but on my computer its dead as a doorknob.
Please tell me what info that may help you help me about my computer.
Cheerz.

Most likely there is a clitch in your connection. Please do the following :

- Remove all batteries for at least 30 minites
- Push , whilst the batteries are still out, the connect button for about 20 seconds. Make sure the the receiver is connected.

- Put in new batteries and push, on the receiver, the connect button for 2 seconds
- Immedialey push the connect button on the mouse. Move the mouse and see whether it works
- After that immediately push the connect button on the keyboard (* before you start this procedure check where the connect button is)
- check whether the KB is working.

If this is not working you might want to check for othe wireless products around

What is this "reciver" you speak of? And also the "connect" button on your mouse...?
My KB has no batteries neither does my mouse, are you perhaps talking about the motherboard battery? Which i doubt.

Was the restart due to a crash?
Any conflicts in device driver
Have you tried unistalling it from control panel. Then just plugging it in to see if it runs.
Try reinstall
try disabling Msft keyboard drivers

Device driver if XP
Start
right click 'My Computer'
select Properties
Under hardware TAb on pop up window click device manager (yellow icon will indicate conflict from here on)
expand keyboard by clicking '+'
right click on your keyboard and select properties

How many other USB devices do you have connected? Have you been able to use any other keyboards since the problem occured? Were they USB? My first thought is that either you have too much power draw for the onboard (i assume) USB hub to handle, or the ports are dieing. The latter would only be likely if the PC is a little old. Sadly my 3 year old machine can not use the inputs (PS/2 or USB) more than a minute after reboot. I attribute that to the crappy board my vendor put in and nothing to do with ungrounded tinkering that I have done for the life of the machine... ;)

I believe you can check the amount of power draw in perfmon, but I can't remember now. I'll check tomorrow and see then.

The keyboard isent wireless, and i can connect a normal old style keyboard, usb/2 i think? the purple hole thing anyway. this is the only usb user i have. And i have already tried a converter usb > usb/2. No luck.
I also noticed in device manager > keyboards it isent detecting my G15,but is detecting my old keyboard (non USB) and yes the G15 drivers are installed.
How do i check the power drawn in perform?

THe G15 works on friends and other computers without drivers installed.
