How to reset the wireless keyboard (and what for)

With wireless keyboard, sometimes things go haywire. Characters appear on the screen very slowly, or switch to repeat with no apparent reason. 

First time it happened to me I tried restarting the computer, switching it off and on again. I tried safe boot. Nothing worked! 

Don’t panic, usually it has nothing to do with your computer. Simply, the keyboard itself needed resetting. 

Here’s how to do it.

1. Unscrew the battery compartment on the left of the keyboard and slide the batteries out. 

2. Slide them back in again and screw in the cover. It can be done with a screwdriver or a coin.

3. Switch the keyboard on by pressing the button on the right. A green led light will appear to the top right of the keyboard. In a few second the computer will find the keyboard and reconnect with it. A ‘keyboard reconnected’ sign will appear on the screen and things will go back to normal. 

Until the next moment the keyboard decides it needs your love and attention.
