Keyboard typing something other than the letters it should

Everytime I try to type something in Word, most of the letters do not work. If I hit the f key - it types a g. I can't get the keyboard to type the correct letters. Can you help? I have tried everything. It is a wireless keyboard - Dell. I just had to replace the batteries.

    have you tried pushing all the ctrl and alt and shift and function buttons you can see? Just a few times each, to see if any are stuck down.

Pressing the left control and shift at the same time fixes this for me.

On this keyboard, try toggling numlock scrolllock and capslock a few times.

Also, try this too: Fn+Numlk or depending of the model, press the button or Fn + Shift +Numlk

Hiii, my laptop started making a random nosie everytime i start typing. it wont let me type anything. any ideas???


ok, guess your keyboard is not working,
try this.....

borrow from a friend..... the keyboard of a PC
connect that to your laptop keyboard/mouse port behind/sides of the laptop, now try typing.....

pls note......
the keyboard connector goes into the port only in a specific angle, align the marker in the port along with the arrow mark in the keyboard connector .....be carefull.... dont force it inside.....else you will kill the keyboard connector pins.....and render the laptop port unusable.....just do it carefully...that's all

all the best.....

Keyboard is working improperly


I had a keyboard that would only print a 5 in a box everytime I pressed the u button. Most of the other keys were putting strange combinations up too.
I found out I had the numlock key at the top (near the top row) and pressed it. Viole' I can read what I am typing (and you can too). Maybe this is your problem?

Cannot uninstall Nero


There are 2 ways to uninstall something. 1 thru Add/Remove Programs, the other thru regedit

Assuming you have XP
Click on Start, Run, then type regedt32
Then click on Edit, then Search, then type in Nero, each entry it finds hit Delete button on your keyboard, then hit F3 button on your keyboard to find the next entry. This might take you a while, but hey it works.
