    I have one and it stopped working. I tried other keyboards and they didn't work, either.

    I thought the installation CD was lost because the name on the disk (IntelliType Pro) did not match the keyboard name and we have an intellitype pro keyboard, as well. So, I reinstalled the driver from the MS website and plugged in the wireless KB, but everything I typed was out of order. The A key and W key were switched, as well as all the other keys on the keyboard.

    After much switching, installing, reinstalling keyboards and their drivers, I finally came to the conclusion that the software on MS can be defective. In fact, much as I love this keyboard, I couldn't find a replacement...must be off the market.

    Once I realized I had the disk all along and installed it (you HAVE to install it through the Device Manager...not add/remove hardware) the disk worked perfectly and everything is back in place.

    Just a little info in case you're having problems with this particular keyboard.

    If all else fails, run in circles, scream and shout! Aren't these time saving items wonderful for the time they waste and the stress levels they raise :)

    LOL! And it never happens when I'm goofing off at the keyboard. *COUGH!* like now *COUGH!* It always happens when I have a project to complete in an hour, have rolled up my sleeves and am pumped to get to work...the ideas are there...the enthusiasm is there...I'm wide awake...then...***CRASH!!!***

    By the time I'm done fixing the problem, my work area is messed up...I'm tired...worn out...deflated...ideas are gone..."I'll just play a little Tetris until I calm down"...
