Wireless keyboard looses connection

HP Recommended

I have a*** problem. The keyboard is less than 30cm from the USB transceiver. It fails 5 or 5 times per day, usually when I am typing quickly. The reset button on the keyboard does not solve the issue, you actually have to remove the batteries and re-insert them. Some other people in our office purchased the same keyboard at the same time and also suffer from this problem, although at different frequencies. I don't think its reasonable to expect users to disconnect other USB devices such as printers just in order to use this keyboard.

Hey there! @JamesE1


Have you tried checking with a different keyboard? Does the issue persist?

Try few troubleshooting steps before you replace the keyboard and check if it helps.


Connect the USB receiver to a different USB port on the PC and check if the issue persists.


Also, Try few steps recommended below.

Restart the computer.
In Device Manager, uninstall and reinstall the keyboard software:
In Windows, search for and open Device Manager.
Click View and select Show Hidden Devices.
Click the arrow next to Keyboards, right-click the keyboard device name, then select Uninstall to remove the device from Windows.
Continue removing device names in the Keyboards category until all device names have been uninstalled.
