Letters on Gateway desktop keyboard not working. Tried Rebooting.

At first, rebooting seemed to fix the problem, but it no longer does. Only my arrow keys work. I am running XP., and have not recently installed any new programs/software.

First check the Device Manager and see if there is a problem with the device driver. If you see a yellow! or a redX, then right click on it and choose to update the driver. In fact you may just update the driver anyway, it will not hurt anything. If updating the driver does not work there is not much else you can do with a keyboard; they are pretty simple machines. You may have to just replace it.

Sometimes my wireless keyboard will type multiples of the same character when I've only hit the key once, and then other times it won't respond and will end up typing the first & last letters of a word...


Try plug it in to another USB port while the PC's switched on. It will force the computer to redect your mouse and keyboard and might fix the problem.

Another test would be on another PC or laptop. If it does the same thing then the keys are probably getting stuck down. Has it had anything spilt on it? Try a vacuum over the keys, you'll be suprised what gets caught under the keys (usally paperclips!!).

Gateway laptop keyboard typing incorrect letters


Windows has support for many input-languages, e.g., for keyboards made in France with accented characters,
and for the DVORAK keyboard layout (which is a complete
rearrangement of the letters on the keyboard for maximum
typing-speed).

Go into "Control Panel", and "Regional and Language" and click the "Language" tab, and switch to the "USA Keyboard".

Keyboard trouble


you need to reload that software that came with the keyboard. Uninstall the keyboard from device manager :- Control Panel>system>device manager. Then reload the software for the keyboard, which should also have the drivers. If you do not have the software, let me know the make and model of the keyboard and I will see what I can do.

Hope this helps

Gateway keyboard shows a lock


I'm not sure what I did that unlocked the keyboard, but I was finally able to turn off the green light. I tried rebooting and pressing all sorts of buttons, but the one that might have worked was the 'end' key.
