Hi, my computer is the HP24-E030NA. I am able to use the internet with my old keyboard ( + USB connection) but the new HP keyboard does not seem to be doing anything although the mouse is flashing red.

Hi,

The computer and keyboard are brand new. Have tried changing the batteries but the keyboard remains unresponsive although the mouse seems to be ok. The keyboard is totally wireless ie. no USB connection etc. I  am using my old keyboard with a USB connection but my old computer "died" so cannot test the keyboard on that.

Regards

Edna

Thanks for the reply,

 

Use the following steps to open the Component Tests menu.

  1. Hold the power button for at least five seconds to turn off the computer.

  2. Turn on the computer and immediately press Esc repeatedly, about once every second. When the menu appears, press the F2 key.

  3. On the main menu, click Component Tests.

    Selecting Component Tests from the main menu

  4. The Component Tests menu displays.

    Your Component Tests menu might be different, depending on the components installed on your computer.

    Sample List of the Component tests

 

Keyboard Test - The Keyboard test provides a quick interactive functional test of the keys on the keyboard. A keyboard is required for this test.

To run the test, click Keyboard, and then click Run once.

The Keyboard Test time is 3 minutes.

 

Let me know how it goes!

Thank you:)

Hi,

I powered off and then powered on the computer, pressed esc repeatedly but no effect. There is a light on the mouse but the light on the keyboard remains off. I have checked the batteries and replaced then with another new set just in case but the keyboard remains unresponsive. I cannot access the computer at all using the new mouse/keyboard combination as no cursor shows on screen.
