Question about Keyboards & Mice
I have a Microsoft wireless keyboard paired with a wireless mouse...they both use the same receiver. The mouse works fine, but the keyboard has begun to cut out intermediately...so that I have to press a key 4-5 times before it works. I opened up the keyboard and noticed a black wire (about 22 gauge) running around the entire inside of the keyboard. I assume this is the antenna...and I noticed that it is frayed in several places where I can see the bare wire. I'm wondering that if this is in fact the antenna wire, that I should be able to just replace it with a strand of say, speaker wire. Would it still transmit the signal? Would I need something with less insulation...or even a special wire? Or would even a bare wire work? Seeing as theres no metal around the inside of the keyboard and thus no where for it to short out.
You can do so by changing the input language (i.e. keyboard language). Just follow the instructions below how to change the laptop keyboard layout.
1.Click Start and then Control Panel
2.In Control Panel, if you are in Category View, click on Switch to Classic View (top left corner).
3.Open Regional and Language Options for Windows XP; Open Clock, Language, and Region for Windows Vista.
4.Click on the Languages tab.
5.Under Text services and input languages, click on the Details button for Windows XP; Click the Keyboards and Languages tab and then click Change keyboards for Windows Vista.
6.Under Installed services, click Add.
7.In the Add Input Language dialog box, choose the input language and keyboard layout or Input Method Editor (IME) you want to add.
8.Click OK twice. You should now see a language indicator in the System Tray (located at bottom right hand corner of the desktop by default). You can switch between different input languages (= keyboard languages) by pressing the Alt + Shift keys

I suggest you use the same gauge and watch out for cold solders.
