Logitech Wireless Keyboard Not Working – Basic Troubleshooting
Let’s start with some basic troubleshooting to see if we can solve the Logitech keyboard not functioning issue before moving on to the remedies that I’ve outlined in this piece.
One of the greatest manufacturers of wireless keyboards is Logitech, which offers a variety of models to suit varied user preferences. Their technological capabilities, sizes, features, and functions vary.
However, if you’re using a Logitech Wireless Keyboard, they all have one thing in common: they either use Bluetooth or Logitech Unifying Wireless Technology to connect to the computer.
Since you have previously used a Logitech wireless keyboard, it is likely that you have linked it to your computer using either Bluetooth or Unifying wireless technology, or while doing so, you may have noticed the keyboard contains a reset button.
Additionally, the receiver that is linked to the computer in order to pair the keyboard with it contains a reset button that may be utilized for simple troubleshooting.
Reset the keyboard by holding down the reset button for a few seconds and then letting go. Apply the same procedure to the receiver that is connected to the computer’s USB port as well.
Restart the computer after resetting both devices to verify whether the Logitech keyboard issue has been fixed. If not, go to the answers below!
These are the fixes for the malfunctioning Logitech wireless keyboard. The Logitech K270, Logitech mk710, Logitech mk850, Logitech k360, Logitech mk320, Logitech k520, and EVERY OTHER Logitech wireless keyboard are all compatible with this solution.
Do not skip any steps and make sure you have read the solutions thoroughly.
Solution: 1– Check the Keyboard and USB Port
Sometimes we attempt to remedy the issue while ignoring other issues. Ensure you have…
- Make sure the keyboard’s on/off button is activated!
- Verify that the battery is functional. There is a good likelihood that the batteries in your Logitech keyboard are completely dead.
- Add the receiver to a different USB port.
Solution: 2– Removing & Reinstall Logitech Software
The software that comes with the Logitech wireless keyboard makes it easy to map the wireless keyboard and receiver you’ve attached to the computer’s USB connection.
When the Logitech software is not installed properly, the wireless keyboard from Logitech will sometimes not operate. This is because the software actually aids in establishing a connection between the software & the hardware devices.
By uninstalling and reinstalling the Logitech Software, this issue may be fixed. In fact, the installation is completed instantly once you remove it, making the procedure rather straightforward.

Pressing Windows in the first step will bring up a command window.

Solution: 3– Uninstall Logitech Wireless Keyboard Driver
This is another another straightforward remedy for the problem of the Logitech wireless keyboard not functioning. Sometimes, this issue might be brought on by a misconfigured default keyboard driver on your computer.
This is pre-installed and utilised with any keyboard connected to your PC, not only the Logitech keyboard!
To check whether the issue has been resolved, we may remove and reinstall the keyboard driver. These are the procedures!
Click the Windows icon in the lower left corner and choose “Right Click.”
Choose “Device Manager” in step two.
The device manager will open, and you’ll be able to view every driver that has been installed on your computer. Select the driver under Keyboards and then click “Uninstall device.”
After the removal is complete, restart the computer.
The driver will automatically be recognised by the computer after restarting since it is a necessary driver for the keyboard to function.
Check the device manager in step 6 to determine whether the driver has been installed. If not, choose “Scan for hardware changes” under “Action” from the menu. If you still can’t see the driver, look again.
If you see a yellow exclamation point, do this action.
- Click the yellow exclamation point driver with the right mouse button.
- Choose “Update Driver” and “Search for the drivers automatically.” If you don’t have an internet connection, it won’t be able to locate the necessary driver.
- Allow it to update the driver when it finds the proper one. After finishing, pick “Action” and “Scan for hardware changes” by clicking.
- The exclamation mark will disappear and the driver list will be refreshed.

Solution: 4-Restarting HID Service
Sometimes the Logitech wireless keyboard problem is brought on by issues with the HID services, which may be resolved by restarting the services and switching it to “Automatic.”
HID, which stands for Human Interface Devices, is entirely concerned with the inputs provided by people, as the name would imply.
Since the keyboard serves as an input device, any HID issues might prevent it from operating as intended.
Check to see whether this issue is resolved by restarting HID Services.
Click the Windows icon to see all of the installed apps and applications on your computer.
Scroll down and choose “Windows Administrative Tools”; a list of further apps will appear.
Navigate down and choose “Services”
Selecting “Services” brings up the Services menu. Find “Human Interface Device Services” as seen in the image below. Click it twice, then choose “Properties.”
Click the “General” tab, choose “Automatic” from the “Start type” drop-down menu, and then click “Ok.”
Check that the “Service status” is “Running” in step 6. If not, you may start it by pressing the “Start” button.
Restart the computer to test the functionality of the Logitech wireless keyboard.
