Question about Keyboards & Mice

1 Answer

Keyboard hotkeys somehow made themselves

Well, i don't know what's going on, but every time i press the L.shift key it does this }

every time i press R.shift, its this ><

apparently somehow every time i press shift what the computer sees as being pressed is L.shift+F7+[

for the right it's R.shift+,+.

i have no idea how this happened, how can i possibly fix it}? i've checked to make sure the keyboard is set on the correct languwage and all that

My keyboard letter types wrongly to type @ I have to press shift and 2


UK keyboards use a different key for @.
If you wish to change the keyboard layout, you can do this by right clicking on your taskbar and select "language bar". When this is done, right click on the keyboard symbol and select "settings". Change the default language (to UK) and your keyboard will type correctly.

I reprogrammed my MESSENGER hot key for another purpose at one time. That purpose no longer exists and I can't remember how to get access to change it back Keyboard Model 1031


If you're trying to set a hotkey on a new keyboard just go to it's settings and change it's hotkey. Don't worry about the old one.

Shift key shuts down my computer


Someone is probably playing a prank on you. Disable the services one by one until you find the program that is assigning those programs hotkeys so programs can't run with hotkeys.

Found this little bomb shell after about 30mins of looking for an answer.

To toggle your scroll lock key:
  1. Click on the Windows Start button.
  2. Select Run.
  3. Type 'OSK' in the dialog box.

  4. Click on OK.
  5. The Microsoft on-screen keyboard will open. Notice that the slk, or scroll lock, key (located in the top row of the on-screen keyboard as shown below) is turned on.

    11809.1.0.jpg
  6. Click on slk (in the top row of the on-screen keyboard). This will toggle the state of the scroll lock key. Notice that the scroll lock key is no longer outlined in red. Scroll lock is now off.

NOTE: If you have installed SetPoint (Logitech’s Mouse and Keyboard software) the confirmation message Scroll Lock Off will also be displayed for about 2 seconds on your monitor.

Microsoft wireless keyboard 3000


not all microsoft keyboards are compatable with linux the best keyboard that is compatable with linux and windows is the Cherry CyMotion Master Linux keyboard it was relesed in oct this year.

The Linux keyboard has the Linux penguin logo, Tux, instead of the Windows start key and features 29 hot keys. The hot keys are configured for the Linux operating system and desktop applications, simplifying actions such as cutting, copying and pasting text, and moving between Web pages.

it costs around £29.99 i have one my self its great for linux.

Gateway keyboard types wrong characters


Same keyboard, same problem for almost 2 years now, and just now figured out how to fix it!! Try a simple left ctrl-shift, your language tab up top will switch between US English/Canadian English/Canadian multilingual, or whatever you set it for. I occasionally want the alternate characters applied, so now I can switch back and forth easily. You may need to set the language tab to your preferred settings. Hope this helps!

Keyboard hot keys


Hi I would sagest that you try reinstalling the drivers from the CD that came with your keyboard if this does not work try disconnecting your keyboard and starting up your PC and after the PC bleeps re plug your key board in and see if this woks failing all that replace the hardware with new and make sure you have set a restore point to go back to if any future problems occur Working for a better computer Paddy
