Keyboard Not Appearing In Device Manager – How To Fix?

If your keyboard isn’t appearing in Device Manager don’t worry—you can easily fix the problem.

Here’s what you need to do:

First open Device Manager. You can do this by pressing the Windows key + R then typing “devmgmt.msc” into the Run dialog box.

Once Device Manager is open look for the “Keyboards” category. If you don’t see it click the “View” menu and select “Show Hidden Devices“.

Now find the keyboard device in the list. If it’s there right-click it and select “Uninstall“.

Once the keyboard has been uninstalled restart your computer.

When your computer starts back up your keyboard should now be appearing in Device Manager. If it’s still not appearing try repeating the steps above.

If your keyboard still isn’t appearing in Device Manager there may be a problem with your computer’s ACPI driver. You can try updating the driver to see if that fixes the problem.

To do this open Device Manager again. Then find the “System Devices” category and expand it.

Find the “Microsoft ACPI-Compliant System Driver” and double-click it.

Click the “Driver” tab then click “Update Driver“.

Click “Search automatically for updated driver software“. Windows will now search for and install the latest ACPI driver.

Once the driver has been updated restart your computer and check to see if your keyboard is now appearing in Device Manager.

If your keyboard still isn’t appearing in Device Manager there may be an issue with your computer’s BIOS. You can try updating your BIOS to the latest version to see if that fixes the problem.

To update your BIOS you’ll need to go to your computer manufacturer’s website and download the latest BIOS update for your model of computer. Once you’ve downloaded the update follow the instructions on how to install it.

After you’ve updated your BIOS restart your computer and check to see if your keyboard is now appearing in Device Manager.

If your keyboard still isn’t appearing in Device Manager you may need to contact your computer manufacturer for further assistance.
