Question about Microsoft Wireless Laser Desktop 4000 Keyboard/Mouse
Just got this set and can't get any response from the command type keystrokes mentioned above and other on the keyboard. Types fine and I like it a lot but want total functionality. Is there some basic incompatibility I'm not going to get fixed ('cuz I'm using it with a Mac-although the box says it's Mac compatible) or a downloadable fix. I shut down and started over and no change. Not using the mouse that came with the set, rather a logitec rollerball and the new keyboard. MS website useless. Thanks for the help. Katy

There is a limit to how many
keystrokes a computer can retain ahead of what it is doing in real time. When
the number of keystrokes entered reaches that limit, no further keystrokes can
be entered and the warning tones indicate this fact to the user.
Try reestarting the computer to clear the
If the error persists after restarting, then probably
the spring loaded mechanism under the key in question has become stuck in the
depressed position. If so, try to gently lever the key up with the flat blade
of a table knife, avoiding, if possible, unclipping the key itself.
If this is not possible, you might
have to deliberately unclip the key to see if the mechanism under it is
damaged. If it is not or it can be unstuck, then carefully re-clip the key.
If none of the above are possible,
it may be necessary to replace the keyboard.
hope this helps.
