Use the backspace in between a sentance typed on Notepad, if that works - your keyboard and key is functional. Else, you might need a replacement Keyboard. (Click on Start > Run > Notepad > OK - To open notepad)

I have a micro innocations kb730/kb740 and its messing with my computer and the buttons dont really work the scroller dont work or the backspace button. Everything pops up in a new window. What should I do...

The scroller and some of the top buttons will not work without the driver. Many other buttons do work fine without the driver. This is an old keyboard and I think they only made a driver for Windows 2000.

If the backspace key is not working they keyboard is probably defective.

My backspace only deletes one leter at a time

of course your backspace button only deletes one letter unless you press the backspace button for a long time and it still deletes one letter. There is something wrong with your keyboard.

Backspace button dont work, Cant push same any two letters in a row

Backspace problem could be a dirty contact, in which case, just take it apart, and clean the whole contact board with electric spray cleaner. Could also be the same software problem with the consecutive letters. Looks like the keyboard driver got corrupted. Reinstall keyboard software / driver
