Re: advice for heat sink raspberry 2

Sounds like this thread has gone a little off track and is not helping the original poster. It could potentially be the power supply, do you have a spare that you could try?

Anyone know if those keyboards with a built in hub are usable RPi A+ ?

What I'm thinking is that the keyboard can be plugged into the A+ and then a mouse and wifi dongle are plugged into the two usb ports on the keyboard.
