USB keyboard puzzle

  radi8or 16:37 27 Apr 2009

Hi all,

I have a new Enermax Aurora USB keyboard when I plug it in I get an error message "A device has malfunctioned disconnect and reconnect if its still not working replace" or words to that effect, but if I reconnect it via a usb extension lead it works perfectly.

Have tried it in different sockets that I know work ie printer,mouse etc.

Have updated usb drivers, still no joy.

Any ideas ?


Regards Bob

The latest version of these keyboards has an on-board audio chip and will make the keyboard the default audio device. You need to tweak the settings in Control Panel to re-enable your sound card/on-board audio to be the default device.

That's the only thing I can think of.

Checked in control panel and you where right about the audio, reset default to sound card but didn't help with the keyboard problem, but thanks for the suggestion

I always use an adapter and plug into the ps/2.
