    Computer says I have the control key on, but I don't. I popped off the control keys, cleaned and tried again. Same problem. Tried turning computer on and off twice. Same problem. Now I can't even...


    Try using the onscreen key board if possible in safe mode. If you have windows xp hit and hold ctrl+alt+delete twice in a row. This will bribg up the hidden admin account. The type Administrator as the user name and laeve the password field blank just hitting enter. Sometimes these hidden accounts are just overlooked. If you can borrow another keyboard or use an old one. You must ad it with the pc off or it will not read it. Sounds like you just need a new keyboard.
    Hope this helps

    I AM USING LOGITECH CORDLESS KEYBOARD WITH WINDOWS 7 W/VISTA EVERYTIME I HIT A KEY DOUBLE LETTERS COME UP CAN YOU HELP ME THANKS JOHN


    Not sure what to say other than:
    1) Driver is installed twice
    2) Keyboard keys are not effectively debounced in which case you would need to replace the keyboard

    To find out if the driver is installed twice, open up the explorer, right click on My Computer and click on properties. Go to device manager and then go down the list and click on Keyboard. there should only be one driver inside. if you find two and they are identical, delete one.
    Good luck

    Can't type same key twice in a row on keyboard. Have to wait a couple of seconds before typing same key again. bar on bottom of screen flashes yellow every time I press a key and window toggles between...


    Have you ever tried putting in another keyboard? If the
    other keyboard works, it's definite that you have a defective keyboard, and you must get a replacement. This is my observation based from your comments that there is no problem with the keyboard settings in your PC.

    How do i turn off the delayed type on a ibm wheelwriter6


    at the very top right of your keyboard there is a "print mode" key
    press this key until the note in the left lower coner of the display says "char print"
    however in delay print you can correct mistakes before you print - saves on correction tape
