How can I get a Microsoft Natural?


Data Doctors got the Dell running, but had to install their drivers because our CD would not work. Our Natural Keyboard is recognized, and drivers show in Device Manager, but keyboard on USB will not work. Another basic, non USB, keyboard will work. How can I get the Mocrosift Natural or work? Software installs from provided disc from Microsoft.
