Microsoft Razer Reclusa Keyboard

Q: Microsoft Razer Reclusa Keyboard

I just bought a Razer Reclusa keyboard and the only problem I'm having is that it does not "power up" so to speak until after post. If I needed to get into the BIOS I could press [del] a million times and nothing would happen. Once windows starts up, it works fine. Is this just the way the keyboard is? I'd appreciate any info.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Haven't looked up that keyboard, but I think I know what it is (the fix) anyway.

You need to get into your BIOS (with another keyboard, ideally PS/2 if you have the connection)
Then set Enable for USB Keyboard/Mouse support

I think that may be a bit of a mind teaser to do, but I'm sure you'll work it out

Since using Win 8 CP I have noticed my keyboard often misses the letter "e" and double types other letters randomly. I am not sure if it is a win 8 problem or coincidence that this has happened since using Win 8.

Razer is completely notorious with drivers. Make sure you are using their latest and if you are already, complain to them.

I've recently acquired a Win 7 PC. I installed a Razer Lycosa keyboard and found out quickly that the "show desktop" shortcut keys (Windows key +D) don't work. I also noticed if I happen to have a search box open, it will enter a D when I try to use the shortcut. This keyboard has worked fine on a XP machine. I also dowloaded the driver from the Razer site and installed it with no change. Any ideas will be appreciated.

It's only with the show desktop key combination that the Windows logo key is a problem? Other key combinations work?

So I just updated Razer Synapse on my desktop PC once it was complete I lost the ability to use my Naga mouse and keyboard (not Razer). I pressed the power button and my PC immediately shut down, which I thought was a little odd since I did not hold the power button....Anyways I restarted the PC and when it booted up the resolution was changed and I was not able to utilize the mouse or keyboard. I tried starting the PC in safe mode and it still had the same issue. The mouse and keyboard will function up until windows 7 is loaded. The only thing I think it could have been is that while synapse was updating AVG popped up saying it removed a potentially dangerous file, could that have been part of the synapse software?...Any help fixing this issue would be appreciated!

Hi People! So i recently bought a Razer Deathstalker Ultimate keyboard, and since I received it i had a problem.

- i plugged it in and it would say, "could not install unidentified device driver", something along those lines.
-So, for some reason its unidentified so i cant install drivers onto it.
-I've tried doing a few things in the device manager, installing it on several computers, but still nothing.

So i was wondering whether anyone could help me with this please? It would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you

Hi all,

I bought the Razer Lycosa tonight and plugged it in looking forward to using it but upon loading the computer my bios has gone so slow i see each letter as if it's being typed out and cannot load windows.

I have plugged in another keyboard and managed to open my BIOS (blue menu bit).

I'm not technical really I just liked the look of the keyboard. I think it's a software related issue?

Above all I need my computer back working but has anyone come across this before?

I noticed I had some windows updates recently and also read a similar thread of which I can no longer find on this web site.

I'm using windows 7 64 bit home premium.

Can anyone help me anything will be much appreciated.


A:Razer Lycosa Keyboard has slowed computer dramatically

Does your computer boot right with another keyboard plugged in, instead of the Razor? If you would, would you please fill in you complete system specs. click the 'my ststem specs' at the bottom of your post and click update system specs. It would help to know what hardware you have. I might suggest you update your bios to the latest version also. A keyboard should not affect you bios or posting.

I've been playing games for more than 12 years with KB+Mouse and have never used a controller before. Games are becoming more and more controller optimized and I have an Eyefinity setup that would give a better experience with a gamepad, so I decided to get one

I've narrowed my options to Razer Onza TE BF3 Edition (Wired):

And Microsoft Xbox 360 Wireless Controller for Windows :

They both seem pretty good, but have heard very mixed views on razer products...

Which one is better ?

I just ran my Microsoft Windows Update a couple of days ago which included Microsoft - Keyboard - Microsoft USB Dual Receiver Wireless Keyboard (Mouse and Keyboard Center). I think this is the culprit causing my problems. Now both my mousepad on my laptop and my mouse are active at the same time and I am unable to uninstall or turn off the mousepad. I've tried uninstall two different ways and neither worked after restarting and shutting down as per instructions. It is driving me crazy because it is extremely hard to type as the cursor will jump on the page and insert my typed letters into the wrong place. I have to get it uninstalled! Typing this is a nightmare and I am not dragging my thumbs on the pad or touching it in anyway. Any suggestions?

Your keyboard w7 driver can be found here just select applicable info and then download
This should install.

The reason it wont install is probably because its a vista or earlier driver and would need to be installed in compatibility mode to get around the OS mismatch, so just download the above w7 driver and you should be ok.

Hello Stefano,
Do remember whether you had installed the optional windows update called " other hardware Hid Non-user Input Data Filter" ? This optional is specifically for wireless mice and keyboards. If you don't have that, it could be the root of your problem.

I don't really have any serious issue with this keyboard.

It is just the standard "Microsoft Internet Keyboard", (Dell by Microsoft).

It is the one with the 7 buttons on top, and 3 buttons on the right.

The 3 on the right are ", Dell Support, Sleep".

Now, I am not worried about contacting Dell, as my 3 year warranty expires next week.

Even if I did want to contact them, I believe any primate could eventually key in

My question is:

Am I experiencing a default setting for these buttons?

The middle one takes me to a Microsoft Calculator, and the left one takes me to My Computer.

This started happening after I upgraded my Intellitype software with XP.

It also happens with ME.

Thanks for any input.

I have a Microsoft Sidewinder X4 Keyboard. The keyboard has a backlight on the keys as it is made for gaming from what I believe.

However everytime I boot my computer the backlight stays on and I have to turn it off by pressing the backlight key 3 times (three times as the keyboard has different dimming settings, bright, less bright, even less bright )

Does anyone know how I can have the backlight turned off forever unless I press the button to activate it?

I assume there must be a setting in the registry telling the keyboard to light up upon boot up?

Go to Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Devices and Printers

Right click on your USB Keyboard, go to Properties, then the Hardware tab.

Highlight USB Input Device (this is the part that doesn't show up under Device Manager) and click on Properties. Click on Change settings.

Go to the Power Management tab and uncheck 'Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power'

That should do it. The keyboard wont shut off after not using it, and it wont shut off from holding down a key for 5 seconds. Kind of ridiculous why that is checked by default.

I have a problem with my Microsoft keyboard (Model: wireless optical desktop 1000) on Windows 7 x32, the receiver seems to disconnect every few minutes, it is not a battery problem, the receiver disconnects and not the keyboard/mouse separately.
Even tough I've tried changing batteries, I've tried switching to another USB port, the receiver is not connected through a hub, there is not interference around, I've tried installing and updating the software to the latest version (IntelliPoint, IntelliType).
Be sure the problem has nothing to the with the set itself, I've been working on Windows Vista so far and the keyboard set has worked flawlessly, I have a dual boot with Vista, and it is still working flawlessly (under Vista).

Thanks a LOT in advance!

Are you plugging in both connectors? If memory serves me correct, these have a usb cable for the mouse and a PS/2 for the keyboard. If you want to go with USB, ONLY plug in the mouse(USB) cable. This will allow both KB/MS to work via USB with just the one connector. I had the same issue and didn't realize you didn't have to plug both in.

Hi, i have a Microsoft wireless optical desktop 4000 comfort edition keyboard/mouse and for a while i have not been able to print screen and couldn't work out why. I have now noticed the little notification when you turn the locks on/off (such as caps, num, scroll) no longer comes up for F-lock. On the wireless receiver the light for f lock does turn on and off like it is supposed to but it appears to have no effect on the computer. none of the function keys work when it is turned off. i reinstalled intellitype and this seemed to solve the problem but since then its started doing it again. any ideas how to fix it?

Edge, Microsoft's new browser, might be a rough diamond and you can make the most of it with a list of shortcuts we have compiled.

Keyboard shortcuts remain an essential tool for any computer user looking to improve their productivity, something not available on tablets or smartphones.

While the growing popularity of touchscreen computers means that some shortcuts are redundant, many will still prefer to use them because, well, they feel more natural and are usually a faster way of getting things done.

If you think we have missed some shortcuts, let us know in the comments.

My first thread so please be patient with me.

I have a problem with my mouse that freezes.
It mainly happens if I switch the computer power off from the socket in the wall or there is a power cut. If I switch on my computer and press any key my mouse freezes. The only way out of this is to again reboot and then delete Microsoft intellitype Pro5.2 and Intellipiont 5.2 from my computer and then again reboot.
If at a later time I get the same problem I then reboot and reload the two micosoft problems.
This problem can sometimes happen without the loss of power.


A:Microsoft Keyboard & Mouse Problem

Generally you should use the power button on the computer to shut down
The power button signals the motherboard that it is ready to shut down and Windows begins a series of steps to ensure that it is done correctly.
I will do things like save anything that is open.
If it doesnt know where to save something it will ask you.
It also take anything in its own memory and assure that it is safely on the HDD.

Just turning it off at the wall is the same as a power outage and important data could be lost.
I cant say for certain that this is your issue but it is possible that the driver settings arent being fully saved due to improper shut down and thus causing an issue.

On a side note I use a intellipoint mouse and never load the software for it.
When Windows starts it creates the mouse driver and works fine.

Im not certain what the intellitype software does exactly but I am using a MS keyboard with no additional software.
Perhaps your keyboard has extra keys or multimedia buttons on it but if not try to not use any software and see how it goes.

Over the years I have found that it is best to let windows decide what is best for it and not load any extra programs or drivers unless necessary.

hello MrVagabond and welcome..
at what point does the pairing fail?
since you said that the you have successfully paired your mouse this means that it shouldnt be a driver issue (this is a bluetooth pairing correct?) at least with the bluetooth dongle...
is this the first time you pair the device or have you paired it before with another OS in the another system (prefferably a Windows Vista) and can you confirm it works?

I bought a new keyboard which came with this software. The EULA says that I am agreeing to auto-updates and that Microsoft can install "updates and/or supplements". I don't want to agree, but the alternative is to return the keyboard (which is logistically difficult, and I need a new keyboard...). My question is, does "supplements" have any particular defined meaning or usage, or would this be giving MS permission to put whatever it likes on my computer?

The auto updates will come with the windwos updates and you still can choose what you want to download anyway. There is no defined meaning for supplements I would say..

I just ran the Windows 7 Upgrade Adviser and it reads that my Intellitype Pro driver for my ancient Microsoft Office Keyboard (Model RT-9450) won't work with W7. MS has stopped supporting it after XP. For me this is a deal breaker because I love my keyboard with the cut, copy, paste buttons and the scroll wheel on the left side of the keyboard.

The last time I recall I had to install an old French language driver to make the keyboard work with Vista.

Anyone know of a fix?


Vista Ultimate

A:Driver for Microsoft Office Keyboard?

FROM: Microsoft Office Keyboard

Just to update everyone,

I found that you can select "Digital Media Pro" from the IntelliType Pro 6.1 Keyboard Software for Windows, here for the Microsoft Office Keyboard (RT9450) and every function will work except the scroll wheel.



For those of you still struggling, as I did for months, in finding a way to make your Office Keyboard to FULLY function in Vista here is a method that will work. It will take you some time, but a little more time spent to have the keyboard and all settings available for use will be worthwhile.

The first thing to do is to download and "Save" the installation for version 5. The link below to the Microsoft website is the first step.

Scroll down to: IntelliType Pro 5 Keyboard Software for Windows XP and Windows 2000.

The proper procedure now is to "Save" the Pro 5 to any folder, preferably not on C drive where your OS is located, but if you do then create a new folder to place the download into.

If you are like me you have downloaded or loaded several different versions of IntelliType Pro setup programs. Further, when you attempt through add/remove programs to eliminate the prior version listed you cannot uninstall; maybe delete but that only deletes the surface problem not the registry problem where the program still resides. So you must get rid of all prior installed versions; I would recommend removing a prior installation of Version 5 as well.

To do this open “run” and enter “regedit”. This will lead you to the registry. Yes, if you don’t pay attention you could foul something up but you can always restore to an earlier date and get yourself up and running again. Condense the various categories so only the title of the category shows. Highlight “My Computer” (don’t click it) then open “Edit”. The menu drop down has “Find” so click it. Now type in the blank space “Microsoft Office Keyboard”. The reason we highlighted “My Computer” is that we want the search of the registry to start at the beginning of all available folders and work its way through the entirety of the folder tree.

The search will begin when you click “Find Next”. Delete every occurrence found in this registry search that is associated with any version of Office Keyboard. I had one sub- folder open (can be seen in the left pane the precise folder that is open) that was obviously dedicated to this program, thus I deleted the “folder” not just the contents of the folder. I did not delete any other of the sub-folders that preceded the one that was opened and that numerous entries of Office Keyboard associations and I didn’t want to sit there deleting about two dozen entries one at a time. It was obvious this opened sub-folder was nothing but Office Keyboard related paths and values.

Indeed, this sub-folder was the only location of Office Keyboard within the entire registry.

Next we go to the Control Panel and click “Keyboard”; the Keyboard Properties box will open. Now click the “Hardware” tab; this will open a box that lists “devices” and “Microsoft USB Office Keyboard (IntelliType Pro and version will be shown within the parenthesis)”. A button titled “Properties” should be shown. Click this button. Another box will open entitled “Microsoft USB Office Keyboard” (IntelliType Pro) Properties. Click the “Driver” tab. Go down to the bottom button and click “Uninstall”.

Once the uninstall has finished close out and go back to the Control Panel. This time click on “SystemR... Read more

I'm a big fan of MicroSoft keyboards and mouses(mice?).

I have 3 PC's - one for gaming, one for internet and media, and another for my digital audio workstation. All home built, and working just fine, thank you I've built over 15 PC's in 20 years, from scratch, and upgraded components more times than I can remember.

Wheneven I've tried a Logitech, eventually, the software, or the hardware lets me down. I always end up replacing them with MicroSoft hardware.

It's solid hardware and it works.

But that's just my opinion. I could be wrong.

The receiver has 2 jacks; a USB for the mouse [that I no longer use - as previously mentioned] and a purple PS-2 jack for the keyboard.
I read in the other forum that you could use just the USB jack to power both. So I removed my $22 PS-2 to USB adapter from the keyboard jack and plugged in the USB jack [which hadn't been plugged in because it was solely for the mouse [or so I thought].
Now the multimedia keys work fine.

Just a heads up on a problem with this keyboard, at least with a Lenovo w530 with Win 7 Pro.

When the OS goes into power-save mode, and I used my fingerprint reader to start the system back up and open Windows, the keyboard behaves as if someone were holding down a shift or ctrl key. In any case, if I click on the firefox icon I get a problem dialog box asking if I want to reinstall Mozilla or some such.

The workaround is to close the dialog box, press and release the shift and ctrl keys, and then start Firefox.

The sculpt is an ok keyboard, but is not as good as the old MS Ergonomic keyboards, IMHO. Elegant, but not as reliable on the keystrokes.

I have come upon a problem wherein my Microsoft Wireless MultiMedia Keyboard 1.1 (P/N

The same issue does not occur with the manufacturer-supplied PS/2 keyboard when used in conjunction with any of my mice.

The issue occurs on Windows Server 2008 R2 (obtained from DreamSpark), with IntelliType and IntelliPoint software/driver suits installed, and on Windows Vista, where the mouse/keyboard are merely recognized as HID-compliant mouse/keyboard.

This issue is driving me crazy, as I can not play any of my games (obviously) as they often require me to move my mouse and keyboard at the same time.

Thanks in advance for any help - if you need additional information, ask and I will add it.

You sure it's wireless PS/2 and that the keyboard is not also USB?
If so, check USB settings for keyboard in BIOS.

Does anyone else here use a wireless keyboard and mouse? My mouse died a couple days ago, so I was going to purchase a new wireless one. Well Bestbuy was sold out of every single wireless mouse except for the $90 ones. I looked over and saw this really nice looking Microsoft wireless keyboard and mouse for only $60. I said, heck with it. I bought it, and I love it. Just thought I'd share my experience with you all. I bought the Microsoft "Basic Wireless Optical Desktop"

Up until a month ago my life was good. PC worked fine. Then one day a blue screen showed up and I took my PC to the shop. It went in and out 3 times. It would lock up everytime I tried to type from the wireless keyboard that I have had for months before the trip to the repair shop. My PC will only accept a basic keyboard. I have downloaded the software driver from Microsoft but it still won't work.

All fixed thank you for your support! The keyboard was fried...I found out after I reformatted the drive and reinstalled windows and the basic keyboard worked and the wireless one did not.

I just bought a Microsoft Wireless Keyboard and Mouse combination. The KB is model 800 and the mouse is model 1000. I just noticed, in Device Manage, both are shown as HID Compliant and I wonder why the don't show up as Microsoft devices. Should I be concerned?

Thank you.

I lost the USB transceiver from my Microsoft Wireless Mouse and Keyboard 2000.

I contacted Microsoft but they don't sell the USB's by themselves - I would have to re-purchase the whole keyboard and mouse set again.

No one is selling the transceiver on eBay either. I'm wondering if there is some other kind of transceiver I can use instead - or maybe is it possible to just use regular old bluetooth?

I am running Windows 7, and currently using a Microsoft Multimedia Keyboard 1.0a. This keyboard has a rather disconcerting feature called the "f-lock", which is a key that you must press if you wish to have access to the function keys F1 thru' F12.

The problem with this f-lock key is that, after you boot up, you must explicitly press it on in order to access the standard function keys. Absolute nuisance.

There is a registry hack type of workaround that has been circulated but this is for Windows XP, and does not work for Windows 7 or Vista.

Does anyone know of a solution that is specific to Windows 7 ?

Thanks and regards,
Andrew Fortune,

Please help,
have installed wireless desktop set, ps2 connection only for keyboard and usb/ps2 connection for mouse. Mouse works fine with either connection, the keyboard is a nightmare.
Works fine on one PC reboots fine and no issues. The other PC doesn't get past POST. Blank screen and no beeps after POST or messages. Both PCs run on XP Professional.
Have even done a total clean install to get rid of any software or device conflicts, only has monitor, keyboard and mouse attached. Works fine with old cabled keyboard and mouse.

PS. works if I boot with old keyboard/mouse and then change over to wireless whilst running but when reboots same old problem

Please please help

I use Windows XP Sp3 on my desktop computer with a Microsoft Wireless Multimedia Keyboard 1.0A. After having tro re-install XP, I have lost the use of the My Documents, My Pictures and My Music buttons although the WebHome and Mail buttons still work. I don't appear to have a software CD for it and it was pre-installed by my computer supplier. Can anyone please tell me how I can bring the dead buttons to life please? Do I need to get software for the purpose? I couldn't find software on a Google search.

A:Microsoft Wireless Keyboard Buttons Dead

Yes, you need to install the keyboard software to access any special keys.

The software you need is a free download from Microsoft called Intellitype:

I've had this for a while, and just decided to install the software portion for the fingerprint reader......DigitalPersona Password Manager 1.0.

Now, upon restart, I get a log in screen with my user name for XP Pro, and a blank password.

I ASSUMED that my Windows logon password would work, but WRONG AGAIN

I cannot get past this stupid log in screen

I can start in safemode, and I removed my Windows logon password ASSUMING that would fix it, but WRONG AGAIN

In safe mode, I can't uninstall the program. For some silly reason, I have no system restore points A format and reinstall is not out of the question, but, I'd like to see if anyone has any ideas rather than the very large hammer sitting on my desk

I am trying to determine if the Microsoft Sculpt Ergonomic keyboard has AES encryption but the technical data sheet (linked at the end of this post) does not state this.  Before I can use this keyboard at work I need to demonstrate that it is encrypted.
 I have search high and low and not found any direct confirmation for this keyboard.  I even tried ringing Microsoft but after being shoved around 4 different people (who kept saying I should plug the dongle in my laptop) I got nowhere.
Can anyone confirm that this keyboard does use AES encryption and for a bonus point is there a MS White Paper on their encryption methodology? 

A:Microsoft Sculpt Ergonomic keyboard - AES encryption?

I found the link in Microsoft website, all features listed in the link for Sculpt Ergonomic keyboard, AES is not included.
Here's a compared result, in my opinion, if a Microsoft keyboard suports this feature, it will list it there. Zhu
