Computer Help Anyone?

My computer keeps telling me my keyboard is not recognized.

It would do it all the time on this one USB port, so I switched ports and it didn't do it for a while. I'm pretty sure that port was bad because my keyboard would disconnect and then reconnect while plugged into it, and so would my mouse.

Like I said I switched ports and it was fine for a while..now sometimes my keyboard will randomly turn off and say *USB Device Not Recognized*

If I wiggle the cord where it's plugged in at it turns back on with no issue and the *USB Device Not Recognized* sign goes away.

Do you think this is an issue with my keyboard or my computer? I have a netbook that has an external monitor and external keyboard hooked up to it.

I didn't pay a lot for my keyboard, I think it was like 10 bucks so it's not like it was an expensive keyboard.

it could be a couple of things

1) Yes it could be a bad usb port like another PP said

2) Or..that you don't have any drivers (the software telling the computer what to do with the keyboard) installed. I would look at my keyboard and see if there is a name or a company you can google and try and download drivers from the website.

I hope this helps..and feel free to PM me too
