As I type the letter "i" has to be hit several times for it to printi. I am the only one that use this laptop 98% of the time. My son and husband only check their email.

They said they did not spill any liquid on it???

Any idea?

    Thank you soooooo much! I read that I could take the button off of the key on the keyboard which I was afraid to do when I read it. However, when you said check for crumbs, paperclip, staple etc., I then lifted the tab gently and it popped off. There it was a ........................crumb!

    I was ready to go to repair because I use my laptop everyday for work.

    Thanks again.

Look closely around the "i" key. You might find crumbs, staple, paperclip, etc... stuck in there.

    Your welcome. I had a cat climb on my laptop keyboard and pulled my "Enter" key off. It took me awhile, but I got it attached. Phew!

I have a Microsoft wireless 3000. The mouse works I can click and move it anywhere. However my keyboard will not type any letters. It was working fine. Did I turn off the keyboard by mistake? How can I get...

Looks like the keyboard is either working on a different channel, or its batteries died. Hit the set button on the face of the wireless receiver. It will start flashing in sequence. Then hit the small button on the back of the keyboard, and one of the lights on the receiver will stop flashing. Then hit the small button on the back of the mouse, in order to synchronize it as well. If the keyboard still doesn't work, then replace the batteries.
