When you press some letters in the keyboard it writes different characters and leters


I'm not sure how to tell you to correct the problem but the same thing happened to me and really messed with my head until I found out that there are several setting for different languages. The keys apparently mean something different from our language. Go in and reset your keyboard . Some have a drop down box that will let you choose your language. I wish I could tell how to correct it but I don't know what kind of computer is. The Control panel should a place about keyboards and let you change it there.

Wireless keyboard will not type numbers. Only the corresponding symbols will show up. The shift key is not down nor is it stuck down.


Although Shift key is not pressed down, maybe the electronics are messed up due to shock if you dropped the keyboard. Turn off Caps Lock, go to text editor of your choice and try to type numbers together with some letters. If you get big letters, then Shift button is pressed down.

In both cases, just to make sure, try your keyboard on some other computer and see if it works.

If you find out that Shift button is always pressed, than it is a hardware problem that may or may not be fixable.
