Question about GE 98056 Keyboard

1 Answer

GE Wireless keyboard repeats keys always

I have tried my GE wireless keyboard and mouse on several computers and it intermittently repeats any key I press. The model number is 98059. Very disappointing. The documentation says it needs no installed drivers since the basic Windows XP driver will work unless one wants the special key functions to work. Whether I install them or not, I get the frustrating repeating keys problem.

Re: GE Wireless keyboard repeats keys always

A possible cause of this could be low batteries in the keyboard. Also, try repositioning the wireless receiver so there are no obstacles between the keyboard and the receiver.

Im in an office with three computers that all have wireless keyboards. One of the keyboards keeps typing letters on another computer. How do I stop the signals from being mixed?

I have had a similar problem, when I wanted to run one Microsoft wireless mouse next to my TV and another Microsoft wireless mouse next to the PC in the same room. Both wireless receivers were picking up keystrokes from the keyboard, so the computer thought all keys were being hit twice.

You didn't mention your brand of wireless keyboard, but for microsoft products you push a button on top of the receiver, and then a button on the bottom of the keyboard or mouse to "pair" them. Repeat this step for the computers that are interfering with each other to solve your problem.

Batteries for GE wireless optical mouse

Normal 0 The GE mouse doesn't have a little door to open on the bottom, Try this.
Just behind the Left and Right keys where your hand rests, apply firm pressure down on the cover and slide to the rear. Some mouse manufactures have used this type of access to replace the batteries.
Hope this helps. Bud

Wireless mouse will not work

Sure you can use the computer w/o a mouse. You can use the Alt key, Tab key, arrow keys, and the Enter key to move and make selections.

About the cordless mouse...I assume you have good batteries installed and in the proper position? Is this a new mouse? If you think it is bad, return it.

You can always buy a cheap USB mouse to get you going. Even though you can use a keyboard to navigate, it gets a little tedious after awhile.

Microsoft Wireless Keyboard Slow and Intermittent

It can be a couple of things. 1. Try replacing the keyboard & mouse's batteries with fresh batteries. 2. Try moving the wireless receiver closer to the keyboard. 3. Make sure the receiver is not located too close to other electronics like a tv or dvd player. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer.

GE Wireless Keyboard - intermittent keys

I would be more inclined to think that its a mechanical problem. You didnt indicate how long youve been using it or how heavy a hand you have while typing but I think its probably a safe bet that the keyboard hasn?t worn out from use. I have had problems with lightly constructed plastic keyboards that are slightly bowed or warped in spots. The keys dont always make a connection with the contact below so your keystroke isn?t registered. Warped areas can easily extend over several keys, thus your clustering. If this is the case there really isn?t much you can do to repair it other than call the manufacturer if its still in warranty. If not you can experiment, perhaps there is some extra plastic in a critical area that wasn?t removed. Be warned though, not many keyboards these days are designed to be taken apart and reassembled easily.
