    Keyboard Weirdness

    Hi all,

    I'm having an issue with keyboards. They will randomly stop working.

    At first I had a wired keyboard and had to physically remove it from the USB slot (then plug it back in).

    Now I have a wireless keyboard, and I can fix the issue by opening the battery compartment, take out the battery for a second then put the battery back in. Then it works.

    Anyone else had this issue?

    2. use usb 2.0
    3. use an Y-usb cable for more current.

    Thanks, but that didn't work. Changed my USB settings and had another recurrence with the keyboard.
