Keyboard key issues

In e-mails, when I click the Shift+2 buttons, I get the @ sign as it appears here. However, when I try the same thing when logging on to facebook or other sites and click the same 2 buttons I get the " sign instead. Can you please help?

My caps wont turn off


Try this. Press: Start>Accessories>Accessibility>On Screen keyboard. Try turning it off from there. If that doesn't work:
1. Choose Start'Settings'Control Panel and double-click Regional and Language Options.
2. In the Languages tab, click the Details button.
3. In the Settings tab, you should see a button called Key Settings. It may be grayed out. If it is, click the Add button and add another keyboard layout (it doesn't matter which one). Press OK.
4. Back in the Settings tab, click to make sure your original keyboard is highlighted and press the Key Settings button.
5. Now under To turn off Caps Lock, click the radio button next to Press the Shift key. Click OK.
6. Click OK twice more to exit the other two dialog boxes.

Shift key locked keyboard out, can't use keys


I found that if you hold down both left and right shift key at the same time (did this for several seconds), it it will solve the problem. Hopefully that fixed the issue. Also, go to control panel, click on accessibility options..in the keyboard tab, click on the settings buttons for sticky keys, filter keys and toggle keys and deselect the option to use shortcut..hopefully this will help you and other people that have had this problem.

Try these steps: Update Adobe Flash Player Internet Explorer and Java script . Clear Explorer cache, cookies, and browsing history. Some find that a return to classic mail improves things. You could also try an alternative browser. Hope this helps!!
Some additional troubleshooting information and steps include:
  • The current problem is with Yahoo. Do not reinstall software on your computer
  • Sign out of Yahoo. Clear your cookies. Sign back into Yahoo.
  • Try logging in from Y! Login
  • Try logging in from Yahoo! Answers - Home
  • Force a browser refresh on the Yahoo mail page. While holding down the control key hit F5.
  • If you can not reply, try starting a new email to your contact.
  • Refresh the Yahoo Mail page before you try to compose a new email.
  • If you use Yahoo or another Yahoo compatible IM messenger, use the check mail link from that software to login to your email.

Latency with keyboard--shift /space/backspace lagg w/ PS2 or USB


Three possible likely causes in this order:
1. driver needs to be reinstalled
2. sticky keys is on
3. spyware/virus
after each step test the keyboard in notepad ( start, all programs,accessories, notepad.)
if it only happens in one program then it is the program causing it.
-----------------------------------------
follow these step, from quickest to longest:
sticky keys:
click start, control panel (if background is not white with a bunch of icons, click "switch to classic view" on the left, then click "accessibility option", under the "keyboard" tab make sure all boxes are unchecked".

Driver:
start->right click my computer, select properties, click hardware tab, click device manager, expand "keyboards", then right click the name of your keyboard, select uninstall->click "ok" to the warning (it may tell you that you need to restart the computer to complete the uninstall) if so do it. When the computer loads up it may tell you to restart again, if so do it. If not thenwait until all loading is complete then test the keyboard.

spyware/viruses:
These will kill system performance in general, however, it appears your complaint is solely about keyboard latency, so this most likely is not the case

Keyborad problems


You might want to try typing on safe mode by pressing F8 as soon as you see the Dell Logo. If the same weird characters appear, then this would be an OS software issue. Doing Repair or OS Reinstall would resolve it. You can also try another keyboard to see if it is a keyboard problem.
