Windows detects 4 keyboards instead of one

My device manager thinks I have 4 keyboards...when logging on, i get messages that the media keyboard is not functioning. How do I find out which keyboard I actually have and then delete the rest. this is a gateway and i have the model number, nothing in the device manager lists of keyboards seem to match up with this

    Delete all the keyboards from the device manager and reboot. It should detect the keyboard and reload the correct driver. Also, some keyboards do appear as 2 or more under the device manager. My Saitek Eclipse keyboard shows up 2 or 3 times. Once as a standard keyboard, once as a gaming keyboard, and one as a gaming keypad.
