Try the keyboard on a different computer. If it works ok on the different computer then your computer may be set up for a different keyboard language. (Don't worry... you can set it back to USA in the control panel).

If you try keyboard on a different computer and you still have the same problem, then the keyboard may be defective.

Finder - question mark alternating flashing at start up

p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 13.0px Arial} p.p2 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 13.0px Arial; min-height: 15.0px}

The flashing question mark indicates that there is a problem with the operating system or hard drive. Try to boot from the Mac OS X install disc by holding down "C" on the keyboard at startup.

If the computer boots normally from the Mac OS X install disc. Go to the Disk Utility from the disc. try to Repair Permissions on the hard drive. If after a while it seemed to work then is it time to reinstall the operating system. If it fails to repair permissions and gives you a bunch of red errors its time to replace the hard drive.

Scorpius K3NT USB Keyboard prevents resume after standby in Win2K

When entering standby, the usb ports go to sleep. Most motherboards allow you to tell the bios that you are using a usb keyboard. That should solve the problem. I keep an old ps2 keyboard plugged in and on the floor as a 'just in case'.

When ever i press certain symbel keys its wierd

You may have activated a shortcut key on your keyboard such as the Fn (function) key. It looks like this

Fn and usually situated on the bottom left hand side of your keyboard near the left hand cntrl button.

Some function keys when pressed once remain on. Once they are on they can cause different symbols to appear in place of the normal keyboard ones. If you press your Fn key again and then try typing on the keyboard once again it may help fix your problem.

I hope this helps
