Question about Microsoft K5100141 Keyboard

1 Answer

Characters are typed twice while button is pressed once.

Hi, My keyboard types certain characters twice, it has recently been doing this and I am now unable to write certain words that have an accent like caf'e. I really need this feature because the Greek language requires an accent on every single word. Other characters not working except the accent are {{}}¨¨""<>??||++__ They all get type in double even though I only hit the button once! Just to let you know, I use the keyboard in Greek mode and when switched to English mode it doesn't have this issue.

It's just a glitch that may happen from time to time. The first thing is to reboot, and more likely than not it will be gone.

Try system restore. Go to START>ACCESSORIES>SYSTEM TOOLS>SYSTEM RESTORE>CHOOSE PREVIOUS RESTORE DATES. Use other restore dates if needed.

Or try this

If your laptop keyboard types wrong characters, it is rather a software issue than an hardware one. This can happen if you accidentally press certain keys on your keyboard, which enable a certain kind of function.
Try the following steps in case your laptop keyboard displays wrong characters:
1.Go to the control panel option
Click ? 'Regional and Language Services' ? 'Languages' ? 'Details' ? 'Key Settings'
2.Select the option 'Switch Between Input Languages' and click on 'Change Key Sequence'
3.Ensure that all the check boxes are unchecked in this window and do the same for 'Switch to...(Keyboard Type)'
4.Click ?
'Ok' ? 'Ok' ? 'Apply' ? 'Ok'.
This should solve your problem

Hi, my acer aspire 4930's keyboard not functioning correctly.. when i press letter "a" it appear as "A1" same as "Q" appears "Q1".. pls help me


Hi.

Try cleaning the keyboard with a clean, dry paintbrush just in case there is anything stuck under the keys. Once you have cleaned the keyboard try typing keys to see if it does the same thing. If the keys type as normal then you have resolved the problem.
If the keys still type other characters along with the letter then there is a strong possibility that the keyboard needs to be replaced.
This usually happens when something has been spilt on the keyboard causing it to type random characters or the characters directly above or below them.

Seeing as the keyboard is a laptop keyboard you can use a wireles/wired keyboard or you can use the on-screen keyboard if you can't get the keyboard to work.


If there is anything else please post back.



Good luck.

Certain keys on the Gyration GC15CK keyboard have stopped working


If this is hardware problem, it'd be hard to repair. I don't mean it's not repairable, but what i mean is i don't recommend since repairing a keyboard and purchasing a new item will cost you more or less the same.
Well try this, Press Fn + Numlock (simultaneously on both the keys) on the keyboard and check if it helps or not [press once and then type the malfunction keys, if not press twice or thrice]. Most keyboard with Fn key's functions can be deactivated or activated with this key combination.
Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

I have a brother 4100 fax. how do I change the information on the fax transmission page? thank you


If your date and time are not set yet, press Menu, then 1, then 2 and enter the date and time, pressing Set after each entry. Enter time in 24-hour format so it will display AM or PM properly.

For other info at the top of your fax transmission page after date and time, such as your fax and phone numbers, and company name:
Press Menu, then 1, then 3 for Station ID info.
First put in your fax number and press Set.
Next put in your phone number and press Set.
Next press the buttons for your company name and press Set.
Press Stop/Exit to return to the date and time display.

Here is info on inputting text, from the manual:
Entering Text
When you are setting certain functions, such as the Station ID, you may need to type text into the machine. Most keys on the dial pad have three or four letters rinted above them. The keys for 0, # and don’t have printed letters because they are used for special characters.
By pressing the appropriate number key repeatedly you can access the character you want.
Inserting Spaces
If you want to enter a blank space, press once between numbers and twice between characters.
Making Corrections
If you entered a letter incorrectly and want to change it, press to move the cursor after the last correct letter. Then press Clear; all letters above and to the right of the cursor will be deleted. Re-enter the correct characters. Also, you can back up and type over incorrect letters.
Repeating Letters
If you need to enter a character that is assigned to the same key as the previous character, press to move the cursor to the right.
Special Characters and Symbols
Key - once - twice - three times - four times - five times
2 - A - B - C - 2 - A
3 - D - E - F- 3 - D
4 G H I 4 G
5 J K L 5 J
6 M N O 6 M
7 P Q R S 7
8 T U V 8 T
9 W X Y Z 9
Press for (space) ! “ # $ % & ’ ( ) + , - . /
Press # for : ; < = > ? @ [ ] ^ _
Press 0 for é à è ê î ç ë ö 0
