When I type letters or numbers using my key board nothing appears on my Desktop. Microsoft Basic Keyboard When I type nothing prints out I disconnect it and re connect it still has the same problem.


if your using the numbers keypad to the right on your keyboard, it sounds like you need to press the numlock button to activate the keys. if thats not the case , you may want to replace your keyboard if this is an issue that involves the upper number keys above the qwerty board.

On my logitech keyboard Y-BH52 my back slash, comma, forward slash and bracket keys are typing in what looks to be french characters such as A's with accents on them...if you could provide any assistance...


hmmm it seems by mistake you have changed your key-board layout to french language.
  • Hold down Alt and press Shift. (Alt+Shift). Check the result by pressing thoes keys. If its back to original means you have installed both English/French both and can toggle pressing Alt+Shift.
  • Otherwise goto Start -> Control Panel -> Regional And Language Option.
  • Click on Language Tab, then Details button.
  • Now in settings tab you can see the languages installed on your system. You can remove un-wanted or/and select a default languages which you want.

Please post your feed-back
Thanks

Whenever I press the question mark key, I keep getting an e with an accent over it. How do I switch back to the question mark


wow...is that a standard keyboard? I don't know that I've ever seen that accented e(maybe it;s an E machine virus that came through some disk you handled?)..just kidding..

you may need to remove that keyboard(using mouse control) from device manager in control panel, and then do a hardware scan to see if it picks it up properly..
