    What is the model number of your computer? What operating system are you using? Did the keyboard come with the system?

I can`t get any upper case functions to work on hp 2011 keyboard what key do i press


1.Make sure the "Caps Lock" key is not on. Though this will be obvious to most people, if your keyboard is typing in only upper-case letters it can't hurt to check. Look at the "Caps Lock" indicator light on the top right corner of your HP keyboard. If the light is on, strike the "Caps Lock" key on the left side of your keyboard. This will turn the "Caps Lock" off, allowing you to type in lower case letters again.

2.Make sure the "SHIFT" keys on your HP keyboard are not stuck. Dust and dirt can build up on a keyboard over time, which can cause certain keys to stick. If either of your keyboard's "SHIFT" keys get stuck, your computer will type in only capital letters. Use a toothpick or cotton swab to remove the gunk from the key, which should help it return to its normal position.

3.Unplug your HP keyboard and then plug it back it. This will remove the device from your operating system and then automatically add it back in. This can have the same effect, essentially, as restarting your computer. If your keyboard was typing in capital letters due to an error being stored in your operating system's memory, that error will now be cleared and the HP keyboard will function as normal again.

4.Update your HP keyboard driver. Click "Start" and then right click on "Computer." Click "Properties" and then "Device Manager." Right click on the listing for your keyboard and then click "Update Driver." This will update the computer software that is associated with your HP keyboard. If your keyboard was typing in all capital letters as a result of an error with this driver, the error will now be fixed and you can use your keyboard normally again

When typing on my wirless keyboard it reglarly adds an extra character to the screen. For example, when doing a shift "H" to capitalize the letter H, it puts a pound symbol in fron of the H. Needless to...


Hi
I have the same keyboard and mouse that I got new with the computer. Shortly after it arrived my keyboard started adding characters. HP sent me a new keyboard and all has been fine.

Wireless mouse and keyboard not responding, no manual supplied for set up, trying to set up new desk top only four days old.


Maybe you need to install the drivers for the keyboard and mouse.

Try to download them from the internet based on your model number and install the drivers.

This should solve the problem.

Unless you can find not only the exact part number but a dongle with the exact same serial number its not possible.Having the same issue.I say shame on HP for creating this issue by not wanting to sell type specific replacements to resolve this problem.They would prefer that you buy an entire new set. Good Luck.

Lazy finger causing keyboard to lock in all caps??


Does it happen with everything you type or just in particular programs? If it happens in Microsoft word 2003 highlight the area where the all caps is happening then go to Format, Font. Under the Font tab there is a section called Effects, in this section there is an All caps option, uncheck it.

If it types all caps everywhere there could be a short in your keyboard. You can solve this by taking your keyboard apart using a multimeter to find the short and reconnecting with solder or electrical tape. Getting a new keyboard or talking to tech support can also help.

Keyboard Reset?


try To download the latest drivers for the keyboard that you are using, visit the following Microsoft hardware Web site: 
http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/download/download.aspx?category=MK



If the issue occurs again, connect the keyboard to a different computer. If the keyboard functions correctly on a different computer, the port to which the keyboard was connected on the original computer may be damaged. If this is the case, contact your computer manufacturer to inquire about how to repair or replace the damaged port.
If the keyboard does not function correctly on another computer, the keyboard may be defective. If this is the case, and the warranty on the keyboard is still valid, you can exchange the defective keyboard for a new keyboard.


good luck :)

Keyboard type


This problem is very common on laptop computer. What happens is while you type on the keyboard, your hand comes close to or touches the touchpad below the keyboard. The system see that as a mouse click and so your cursor will 'jump' to whatever location on the screen the mouse pointer is at.

This can happen, even if you do not feel your hand touch as the touchpads are sensitive enough to respond to your hand bring just above them.

Gateway and most manufacturers have addressed this common user frustration on new models of laptops by either adding some 'palm detection' to their touchpads and drivers or adding a simple way to turn the touchpad on or off.

Depending what model system you have (solo 9100 vs 9150) and what operating system you are running, you may have a few options.

First off, you must be using Windows 98 to have access to these options in the touchpad driver.

For a solo 9100 you have adjust to touchpad sensitivy. To get to the touchpad settings click Start->Settings->Control Panel. Double click on the MOUSE icon. Click on the TOUCHPAD tab. On this tab you can set the threshold setting as heavy as possible to help decrease the frequency at which the mouse will jump while typing. In the solo 9100 models, this is the only setting that addresses this problem.

For the solo 9150 you can the disable clickin while typing. To get to this setting: Click on START->Setting->Control Panel. Double Click on the MOUSE icon. Click on the TOUCHPAD tab. In the TAPPING section, Place a check mark next to Disable tapping when typing.

If these settings do not help or are not available due to another operating systems etc, then your best option is to physcially cover the touchpad when you are doing things that require a lot of tyings. If you need a lot of mouse/typing, then you can add an external mouse to assist you. I have found that placing a post-it note over the touchpad is more convenient then other barriers since it light sticks to help it stay in place.
