bluetooth keyboard connects, but not working

Hi This problem is weird.. I bought a bluetooth keyboard and a dongle, and if I use the dongle and the keyboard on a laptop it works. ( and it is the dongle that is in use be course if I disconnect the dongle the keyboard stops working!! ) IF I connect it to my desktop, where I want to use the keyboard, the connection screen ask me to type a code, ( which is 100% normal), when I do that, and press enter and the keyboard is then added to devices and printers, in other words it is connected and everything looks fine...until I try to use the keyboard, then it is dead. Nothing works, but it is still connected according to Windows. I have tried to: delete bluetooth drivers and install new. I have tried to copy the drivers from the laptop to the desktop ( with no luck) I have searched for new drivers on the net, but didn't find any that worked. I have contacted support that send me a new keyboard free of charge, so now I have two that don't work :))... on my laptop, but not on my desktop. what to do?

any brilliant ideas?...
