I would first suspect a hardware issue (assuming you are not on an office VPN from your home which can drop keystrokes). If this is a PS2 (round plug) keyboard, try a USB keyboard and see what happens. If this is a USB keyboard and you have a PS2 port, try a PS2 keyboard. If you are using any type of keyboard adapter (PS2 -> USB or vice versa) get rid of it and get the correct keyboard. sells basic ones for about $10.

If none of those techniques eliminate the problem, check out your keyboard profile in device manager (right click on my computer, select properties, select the hardware tab and then select device manager. Find the section that says keyboard and see if you have an exclamation point (yellow circle) there. See if you have any other exclamation points. Correct the problem.

Finally, the least likely scenario is a key stroke logger (keylogger). Download the free programs spybot and/or threatfire and have them check your PC.

Casio te8000f wont boot up

That's unusual. I have had it many times and it has always needed a RAM clear. It's possible that your keyboard has a problem. Also, make sure the JF key is the second from the left at the top of the raised keys. You need to hold it for a few seconds. Make sure you are powering on at the wall while holding it. The battery should be a 3 volt Lithium Pentoxide type so make sure there is 3v on the battery (around 4v when charging with power on). They are an expensive cash register so probably worth going further if you are technical. You could try taking the backing plate off of the raised key side of the keyboard and make sure there is no spillage in the membrane in the keyboard.

How do I turn off safe mode

Safe Mode is not turned off or on. Your PC will always boot in normal mode unless you press the F8 key when it boots or there is major corruption in your boot up settings. Please make sure the F8 key is not stuck down on the keyboard. Use a different keybord if you can or kepp pressing the F8 jey a lot to free it up.

Flexion: Casio TE2400 cash register

Ok. We'll start with the extra buttons that you wanted. You need to go to the section which has the key codes. it should be just past the memory allocation pages. It will be called key allocation. You need to find the code number next to the two new buttons you wanted to add to the keyboard. When you have them,
Turn key to program 4 SUBTOTAL now type the 2 digit key code for the button you want now press a position on the keyboard to place the key there press SUBTOTAL. type the next code for the second button and press the position you want it in. press SUBTOTAL
Now you can go back to REG mode and you will have the two new keys on your keyboard. Make sure you change the label on the paper sheet under the keyboard.
Let me know when you have done it and we'll go to the next step.

PC keyboard is requiring 5 second pause between double strokes

Seems a driver issue to me.
İf you are using windows operation system than go "my computer" rigt click>properties>Hardware tab.
Click on the "device manager" find the "Keyboards" click on this and you will see the installed keyboard. Uninstall it and reboot the computer. Windows will be register it again with fresh drivers when your operation system is loaded during restart.

PS. If you keyboard has USB connection, plug it off before shut down and plug it on after your system is fully loaded. Wait for the informative pop up messages sayin " new hardware found" etc. You can use it after "your hardware installed and ready for use" message displayed.

Looks like one key on your keybord is constantly depressed specially if you are using a keyboard which is made by combining 3 layers of semitransparent plastic sheets with a rubber cup under each key. These keyboard fail without any warning and sudeenly one day when u switch on ur PC, it will make the motor, fan,running, but NO DISPLAY. Is this what has occured? If so and even if the PS2 connector of the keybord(if u are not using a USB keyboard), check for looseness or any bent pin. Remove the jack and try starting ur PC. If it behaves (soundwise & vibrationwise) as earlier then its definitely keyborad problem. If possible, before buying a new one try any keyborad which is working condition and check If problem remais, then do post your feedback & i'll try my best....sodeep
