    Hello.

    I have Wireless Natural Multimedia Keyboard; it works great under XP
    Professional on same machine (it is dual-boot machine) but some of
    keys (very important, Calculator key for example) does not work under
    Vista Enterprise 32 bit.

    Details about configuration:

    OS: Vista Enterprise 32 bit with all latest Windows Update patches
    installed

    Keyboard: Microsoft Wireless Natural Multimedia Keyboard attached to
    PS/2 port

    Software: IntelliType Pro 6.1 (latest from
    http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/mouseandkeyboard/Download.mspx)

    Registry:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\i8042prt\Start =
    1
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\kbdhid\Start = 4

    Any idea how this can be resolved?

    DejanVesic,

    Hardware not functioning properly is most likely caused by driver issues.
    The following is a link to a Microsoft article for troubleshooting keyboard
    problems:

    Oftentimes, hardware issues can be resolved by installing the latest
    drivers, if any are available.

    I forgot in last post that I tried all above before; MsKey do not show
    that Calculator key is even pressed. Also, I can't find any newer
    drivers than those on Windows Update / IntelliType Pro 6.1.

    DejanVesic,

    It's OK to forget. I often forget to include information. From what you
    say, it seems you will need to wait for new drivers, or some other unknown
    fix, to correct the problem.

    I also have a Wireless Natural Multimedia Keyboard and Wireless
    Intellimouse that have functionality issues with Vista. A temporary
    solution is to open the the Keyboard and/or Mouse Icons in Control Panel
    and click <OK> to save setting changes. Your device "may" then work
    properly, as mine does, for a while. The real problem solution may be
    in the choice of USB ports and drivers. I have not experimented with
    that as of yet.
