    well i have a 'Microsoft Keyboard with Fingerprint Reader' and i also have a
    Microsoft Wireless Optical Mouse 2.0. When i boot up my computer, my keyboard
    works just fine, i can get into the BIOS menu, but whenever it gets past the
    Windows Vista loading screen (the one with the moving thingy) my keyboard
    turns off. The only way to type in my password is by unplugging it and
    pluggin it back in. Then it works perfectly fine (except for the fact that
    the Fingerprint reader doesnt work due to the Microsoft not making Vista
    compatible drivers for it) until I reboot. On the other hand my mouse works
    just fine. Oddly enough, none of my extra keys like web, messenger,
    documents, pictures, etc work but my music controls and volume controls do...
    Both connect via USB 2.0. I've also downloaded the latest drivers and tried
    uninstalling and installing but no luck. What should i do?

    I got the DigitalPersona Password Manager installed and it works, and goes
    thru the finger registration process but i cant register my finger cuz the
    reader wont turned on. Even the Properties work, but nothing for the reader.

    I'm running an HP Media Center m7060n that hasn't been modified, I just
    added the keyboard, mouse, HP Personal Media Drive, and HP 3210xi All-in-One

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
