    i just got my MacPro, and the left shift button at my wireless keyboard does not seem to react to create a big letter, like S or F or something. And it doesn't give me the other alternatives at the number-buttons either!

    How can I activate this button?

    I have the same problem.  Only the left shift button doesn't work.  I took off the button to clean it there wasn't any dust to clean.  I read things like resetting the PRAM would work but it doesn't.  I don't know what else is to do.

When I set up the Text to Speech component in the System Preferences I had chosen Shift S as the key to activate this. I had to turn that off so that my Shift S would work again in a text document.

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

I use MacBook Pro (OS X version 10.5.8) in combination with LCD TV, wireless mouse and new Apple wireless keyboard. The problem is that function keys of the wireless keyboard do not respond in a same way...


Make sure to run all available software updates as there's probably a firmware update for your keyboard you need to download.

If there isn't or the problem persists afterwards, you'll need to go into Apple Menu > System Preferences > Keyboard and Mouse > Keyboard and uncheck 'Use all F1, F2 etc. keys as standard function keys.'

Good luck!

Shift keys Are being cApitAl a and tab


try to use virtual keyboard in start/allprograms/accessories/accessibility/onscreen keyboard. If your virtual keyboard is showing the different layout than your keyboard, check your input language setting and fix it. If your virtual keyboard is OK, then your real keyboard is the problem. Try to unplug and plug again.

I can't quit a program using apple key and letter Q and more problems


Hop into your system preferences and make sure you don't have anything turned on in Universal Access. If you don't, it's probably a bad corner of your keyboard there.

Messed up keys


try hitting the left alt and the left shift button together, then try it out by pressing shift question mark. I had the exact same problem and i think you can alternate between french and english keys by hitting these two buttons together.
