Question about Manhattan Computers & Internet
Hello, I have just purchased a Manhattan Deluxe Multimedia Keyboard(Model# 171595). I am currently having 2 issues with this keyboard.
The left shift button is acting as two buttons:
-If I hold down the left side of the shift button it works fine.
-If I hold down the right side of the shift button it acts as if I am hitting "SHIFT+\" and giving me a continuous line of |||| symbols.
The second issue is that if I hold down the "Q" key and while holding it I hit the "1" key, the "1" key does not work. The same applies for the "W and 2", "E and 3"(thats all I tested)
Lastly I am unable to find the drivers for this model and windows just has the standard keyboard installed in device manager. I am using windows Vista and the CD that came with the keyboard installed a data encryption 2.0 software and after searched provided no results for drivers.
Save hours of searching online or wasting money on unnecessary repairs by talking to a 6YA Expert who can help you resolve this issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.

Keyboard is shot. They do that due to the heat laptops generate. I've probably replaced 200 laptop keyboards in the past 5 years. You can buy one on ebay for about $21.00. http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-HP-COMPAQ-Presario-2100-2500-Keyboard-317443-001_W0QQitemZ190124162270QQihZ009QQcategoryZ116289QQcmdZViewItem Ray

|I have been having the same issue with this keyboard since it was fresh out of the box. Unfortunatly, I replaced it right away with an ergonomic keyboard & didn't think about replacing it. Now that the ergonomic one is busted, I'm stuck with the factory one again with the same problem. I contacted Customer Support & they told me that it was a faulty keyboard & should be replaced. So, basically, there isn't anything you can do but go out & get a new one. If you are still within the one year warrenty, Gateway will replace it for free, so you'd better test out those keyboards right away & replace them immediately if need be!

check your keyboard in
Start/settings/control panel/keyboard right click open check what options available you may be able to stop key working

The 8042 keyboard controller has been integrated into one chip with other I/O functions so I doubt you can replace it as a single IC and I'm afraid that is what has failed.
It is an extremely rare failure but I guess it has to happen some time.
The keyboard is kind of a polled matrix so it only takes the failure of a single line to bollix things up.
I think what you are talking about here is a motherboard exchange or repair.

it sounds like you have sticky keys on.
this would come on by pressing the shift key 5 times.
press any two keys at the same time and the control panel will come up.
