There should be a small wireless dongle that cam with the mouse & keyboard, generally a small plastic piece on the end of a USB connector. Plug this into one of the USB ports in the back of the computer.

Best Keyboard for Drunk People


Have you ever tried to type a text message when you've been drinking?

Things may look a little fuzzy, fingers may be hitting all the wrong characters.. completing a short text message can be frustrating.. well not if you use my favorite keyboard tip..

Try installing this FREE Android app from the Google Play Apps Store called "Minuum Keyboard Free + Emoji" by Whirlscape

The keyboard looks kind of crazy.. it might even frustrate your friends when they first see it.. I showed it to this girl I liked to have her enter her number in my phone.. She screamed.. It was hilarious.. :)

but try it out.. you might find it amazing

1.) This keyboard will give you a bigger view of your application, rather than the keyboard taking up most of the screen space

2.) It has a very good word prediction and can often times figure out what you are going to say, so that you don't have to type it.. just select the words

3) When I can't see straight but need to type on my phone, I can hardly see what I'm typing.. Minuum doesn't need you to type the exact letters.. you could get them all wrong.. but still be able to select the right word you are trying to say, so that your text message is exactly what you are trying to type.. on another keyboard.. say you typed "Gpuulvvka," Minuum will figure out that you really wanted "Tomorrow" ..if I try that on Swiftkey keyboard.. my other favorite for the best predictions, it won't even know what to do with that.. LOL

While typing text my cursor jumps back 2-3 lines


The keyboard speed maybe set too low for your typing skills, try increasing the keyboard speed.
Open the Control Panel - Keyboard - Speed tab and move the speed slider to the max speed.

Wrong letters display when I type


Hi Check "Control Panel" > "Regional and Language Options" > "Keyboards and Languages" > "Change Keyboards". This brings up the "Text Services and Input Languages" dialog box in Vista (XP may be a slightly different path). This box will display (in the "Installed services" section) how many keyboard layouts are installed on your computer. If have more than just the "US" keyboard installed, there exists certain keyboard combinations with the "Ctrl" key that will automatically switch your keyboard layout from the default US to another one that is installed

Keyboard on joybook p52


If you've changed keyboards and install the operating system and it is still happening then you've done about all there is you can do in case if it was hardware or virus related.

Have you tried booting up in Safe Mode and see if the keys work there? If so you still have a virus that has hijacked your keyboard.
Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn itback on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFEMODE. Take the Safe Mode option and let it boot up. Safe Mode will lookdifferent to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this isnormal.If it still does not work in Safe Mode try a Virtual Keyboard that

Go to www.google.com and in the search box type:"download.cnet.com" (without the quotes). Click the link to goto the site and look on the left side when the site opens up and you will see agray area that says FIND SOFTWARE. In the white search box under FindSoftware type: "Virtual Keyboard" (without the quotes) and click themirror to search. When the search results come back look for FREE VIRTUALKEYBOARD. Download and Install it. It's totally FREE. Alsouncheck anything that pops up other than the license agreement during thedownload and installation. You only want the Free Keyboard and not theother junk.

You can use it to solve your keyboard problem. Just open up whatever it is youwant to type on such as the web address in an browser, a word document, etc.,then open the Free Virtual Keyboard and it will sit on top of whatever you weredoing. You can move it around so that it is not in your way also. Use your mouse pointer to point and click on the key you want to type on the virtual keyboard.

Instruction for keyboard on T23 laptop


On most notebook PCs, there is a key at the lower left labeled "Fn". You hold this key down while also pressing the key that has the third symbol you want. This answer works for MOST notebook PC keyboards. I can't guarantee that it will work for yours. Try it.
