Keyboard drivers


  • I'm running a Compaq laptop, and trying to hook up my keyboard into it. Windows 7 detected it, but had no drivers for it, and now isn't detecting it at all.

    It's an hp sk-2960 keyboard; I also can't find drivers. How do I make it work?

  • Go to Compaq's site, download the latest drivers, you may have to use compatability mode to get the install program to work, but try without first..If this don't work post the model name and model number of the laptop

  • Didn't work.

    It's a Presario CQ60.

  • Aren't they the same company now?, did you try compatability mode?, after the drivers install try either disconnectig the keyboard, reconnecting or go in device manager and try updating the driver

  • You running 32 or 64 bit?
    Is this a ps2 type or usb keyboard?

  • 32-bit windows 7. It's a PS/2 keyboard in a USB adaptor. I'm pretty sure the adaptor is working.

  • when the device is connected, does either it or an unknown device show in "device manager"?

    Evidently a popular keyboard,
    goinng with the last model listed, the a6314f, I would try the "original multimedia keyboard driver" for Win Vista x64
     the download page is ;
    the driver set up for PS2 installation, have you used this keyboard with an adapter before?
    Either way try installing this file, if it doesn't work after the install and reboot, I would like you to look in device manager for any "unknown devices" or anything else that might have a question mark or possibly represent your keyboard...

  • That program requires the 64-bit Vista to work. I'm running 32-bit 7.
    Sunday, May 10, 2009 5:07 AM
  • When I installed Windows 7, it told me my "keyboard filter" wasn't compatible. Is the problem, and if so, how do I resolve it?
    Sunday, May 10, 2009 5:12 AM
  • If that don't work, I suspect that either the ps2 to usb dongle or we need a Win7 specific driver, being as the keyboard is quite common, hopefully HP writes a Win7 driver..
    Sunday, May 10, 2009 5:21 AM
  • But why isn't it detecting my keyboard? Nothing happens when I plug it in, now. The keyboard lights up, but the computer doesn't pick it up.
    Sunday, May 10, 2009 2:58 PM
  • Hi, I'm having the same Keyboard Filter issue on my Compaq CQ40. Everything seems to be working fine except for the FN+HOME (Mute sound) function. Combed HP/Compaq sites , no wins. I'm on RC1 32-bit.
