Problem description: Recently I found an a1314 keyboard in the trash (and a set of glass ball speakers) and I grabbed it, thinking I could pair it to my windows PC. I got myself a bluetooth adapter and tried pairing it and while it sees it and connects, I can't get it to pair to my computer (windows 8.1) or to my LG G5.
I get to the point where it asks for the code but when I type the number and hit enter, it doesn't pair.
One thing, it doesn't say "apple wireless keyboard" on it , but "clavier de william" which might be the previous owner's name.
Could that be stopping me? Is there a way to hard reset a keyboard? Is the keyboard just not working?
Attempted fixes: Tried following steps I found online, tried the "hold the power button" while pairing trick, tried pairing it with my phone
Recent changes: N/A
Operating system: Windows 8.1
I have Googled and read the FAQ: Yes

I think you have to do extra work to get an Apple keyboard to connect to Windows:
I don't know if that's the main issue though.
