SOURCE: keyboard problems - crtl, shift, alt keys does not work

I met the same problem, and I fixed it.

For my own case, it is mainly a hardware malfunction happening at the data bus(the wide, plastic strand) connecting the keyboard to the mainboard.
I found that part of that strand was bent, so I squeezed it to keep it flat.
everything has been OK since I did that.

SOURCE: logitech cordless desktop mx 3200 laser keyboard - french characters

Its not the keyboard fault but your operating system. I'm going to assume you live in Canada and when you had setup the computer for the first time you had selected Canada has country you live in instead of the United States (default) If you notice on your desktop or taskbar there will be a keyboard logo. Click it and select US 101 keyboard (United states). You get the french symbols because microsoft thinks because you live in Canada you must be french canadian.... stupid eh! They have it selected to mulitlingual Canadian. Select the US English as default and you shouldn't get those french symbols when you really want the shift or question mark key.

I live in Canada and I see looks of people who ask me the same question all the time.

Hope this helps!

SOURCE: F Keys aren't working, nor Alt-F4

Do you have an F-Lock button on your keyboard? Most of the time that is the culprit of this problem.

SOURCE: wireless keyboard no power

twilight28 is a ridiculous fool. Firstly, "Apple doesnt work" in a nonsensical statement with a punctuation error. Secondly, if I am to infer Twitlight28's meaning then an entire company of products do not work ... Wow! Additionally, how was that supposed to help anyone? Finally, who cares about your stupid brand loyalty, it is all a matter of personal taste

SOURCE: Gateway Keyboard left shift key adds a pipe character

The driver will not fix the problem, as this is a mechanical problem. I had the same problem and was able to fix it. Instructions with pictures can be found at: http://lotus.kick-***.net/keyboard

Here are the instructions without the pictures:

I had a problem with my Gateway keyboard where whenver I pressed the left shift key, it type a pipe | (verticle line) character. This is the same character that is above the back slash character . I searched the internet and people were suggesting reloading drivers and apparently Gateway was suggesting a destructive reload of the hard drive. That's absolutely rediculous.
After some research, I determined that on some European style keyboards, the backslash/pipe key is between the left shift and the "Z" key. So, I removed the left shift key to experiment. The key simply pops off by sticking a screwdriver under it. (It is not necessary for you to do this).

When I used a little screwdriver to press on the center of the plastic (red arrow) I would get a proper shift key. However, when I pressed to the right (green arrow), I would get the backslash character. If I pushed at the red and green arrow together, I would get the pipe character.

Ah-hah! I determined the problem. The inside of the keyboard is a "universal" type and can be used with U.S. or Europeon keyboard layouts. For whatever reason, the left shift key was hitting both dots under the key. (The dots are visible in the pictures below.)
To resolve the problem, it is necessary to disassemble the keyboard. On the bottom of the keyboard is a bunch of screws. Remove all of the screws. If you have any rubber feet, there is probably screws under the rubber feet. The feet are just held on by sticky taope, so they peel right off.

Once all of the screws are removed the top and bottom halves seperate easily. The circuits stay in the bottom half of the keyboard, so set the top half of the keyboard to the side. The red arrow marks where the left shift key presses down.

Pull back the top layer and you will see the flexible circuits. These are also made up of multiple layers. When a key is pressed it pushes these layers together to complete the switch circuit. The red arrow marks the shift key. The green arrow marks the backslahs/pipe key for European style keyboards. The blue arrow is yet another key that is not used on U.S. keyboards.

Pull back the first layer of the switch circuit to expose the space between the circuit layers.

Place a small piece of electrical tape on the extra backslash/pipe circuit connection as marked by the red arrow.

Now simply reassemble the keyboard and that weird pipe character will never accidentally show up again.

Q. What trackball wireless mouse is compatible with Logitech K260 keyboard/mouse combo? Is it the Logitech M570 trackball mouse that works with K260 keyboard?


The trackball mouse will come with it's own wireless adapter, So you can use any model you want. Mouse and Keyboard are fairly generic devices and will install themselves.
So you can choose any trackball you like and it will work as expected.

My inspiron mini 1018 notebook's keyboard is not working properly. The left shift key appears to be stuck and I really having a hard time using the whole keyboard. I remember having spilled a few drops...


When water spills into a notebook, you should fully disassemble the notebook & thoroughly inspect its inside. Look for any traces of liquid on the circuit boards & on other components. On circuit boards, liquid damage appears in the form of whitish traces. These needs to be wiped off. This can be done using a tooth brush moistened with few drops of hand sanitizer liquid.
Check all internal connectors & make sure that no liquid seeped into them. Dry them if needed.
When you are done, re-assemble back the notebook.
If the liquid fell on the keyboard & you found out that the keyboard is no longer working, then you might have to replace the keyboard.

How do I turn off French characters


Hello.
try pressing the left CTRL + SHIFT keys at the same time to switch it back over (You might need to press them a couple times).
From regional settings (regional and language settings) keyboards/change keyboards, you can remove all the keyboard you don't use and leave only the one you need.

Good luck

Split keyboard & capslock shift function


I had a similar problem and noticed I hit the F Lock button. On mine it was a one way plunger stuck down. This caused the problems you mentioned on mine. Prying it up with a paper clip had my unit working immediately. Good luck!
