Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

Keyboard problem. Gateway keyboard G9900H, date of manufacture is 990704: The number row and letter row below it seem to be somehow connected. When the 1 is hit, a q shows up before the 1; when the q is hit, a 1 shows up before the q. This happens to all numbers and numbers in the q row, except for 5 and 6 and t and y. Tried someone else's keyboard and all was OK. Can I do something to my keyboard so it works OK???

    Thank you for the response. I wasn't looking to fix it -- I thought maybe I inadvertently hit something that caused this.

Just replace the keyboard. It is not worth the trouble of fixing yours when new ones are as low as $10.00-15.00 USD. Also you can take this opportunity to get a keyboard that might have some buttons that could be useful to you IE: internet,e-mail,calculator, plus some have buttons you can set to whatever you want.

    if you tested another kb and everything worked ok then it leads me to believe your keyboard simply got old and needs to be put to rest. Please don't forget to rate me if this helps

0 = Num Lock is turned OFF after the logon.
1 = Disable Num Lock.
