Dear,

first try with reinstalling the driver.. but uninstall the previous one completely..

if still facing the problem then it could be ur window problem.. a virus or something else..

by the way, is it work fine on notepad, ms word or word pad.. if yes, then the max. chances is that, it could be the windows problem

regards,

hope it will help

My acer 6516 laptop keyboard is locked, and I cannot get it to unlock.


Holding down shift key for more than 8 seconds will lock the keyboard and it will stop responding. But if you keep pressing keys for few seconds you would be able to type in but it will be very slow.
Plus, it will produce a nasty sound.

To get around this, go to start and then settings, then control panel and then finally accessibility options. Make sure all the 3 boxes are unchecked.

Keyboard beeps when any key is pressed


The reason these beeps are happening is because there might be a key that is slightly depressed enough to where its registering keystrokes. Move your fingers all over the keyboard and see if you the beeps stop after you do that. If it still is going on then that means your keyboard is bad and will need to be replaced.

Microsoft wireless mouse 700 works, slows, then stops


Seems like new batteries did the trick. Should start simple.

But I am not totally convinced. I will keep an eye on it.

My number keys arent working because i was hold shift for more than eight seconds the a message popped up then i clicked ok


Try holding down the shift key again for 8 seconds and read the window to cancel the filter keys.

As for your numbers not working, there is a NumLock [number lock] key on your keyboard. Try hitting that and see if your numbers work.

Hope this helps.

Microsoft Wireless Keyboard Slow and Intermittent


It can be a couple of things. 1. Try replacing the keyboard & mouse's batteries with fresh batteries. 2. Try moving the wireless receiver closer to the keyboard. 3. Make sure the receiver is not located too close to other electronics like a tv or dvd player. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer.

Keyboard beeps when any key is pressed


I found out what was wrong in my case. Someone had tampered with the accessibility options

So for anyone with keyboard problem check :
In Windows XP : control panel-> accessibility options -> keyboard : StickyKeys and Filterkeys checkboxes should be unchecked.

In Windows Vista : Ease of access -> Ease of access center -> keyboard : StickyKeys and Filterkeys checkboxes should be unchecked.
