It's probably the USB dongle that's gone wrong - not much you can do about it except buy a new one or stick to the wired keyboard.

"scrap the wireless, they are nothing but problems anyways."

Agree. RF interference from the machine itself can cause wireless devices to malfunction.

I agree with XPUser, however, if you've swapped keyboards and it still doesn't work then the USB connectors are probably the cause - usually down to insufficient power to supply the dongle. Only thing that may work with that (assuming you've tried plugging it into different USB ports?) is to try using a powered USB hub, however then you may get issues with the way USB hubs work in sharing the signal, so I would still stick to wired keyboards - no batteries to replace for a start.

Hi Ya Boys, what I have found out about this problem if I disconect my wirelesss keyboard and mouse and re-boot my pc. when the pc has booted plug the
wirelesss keyboard and mouse back in and it works ok. I will try useing a powered USB hub to see if this works.

Useing a powered USB hub does not work, If I reconfigure my pc this works for about 2 days and then I have to go back to disconeting my wirelesss keyboard and mouse before booting up.I think the 2 days is when I put a 2nd Hard Drive back in could this be the problem?

To be honest I think you may just have a power problem within the motherboard and whatever you do I suspect you are never going to solve it completely. If your wired keyboard works without any problems then stick to that.

'Today I have notice another USB port at the back off PC'

it's nice to learn soimething new isn't it...LOL...actually the back ports are the ones you should use for keyboard, mouse, etc...front ones are better for camera cards, etc...
