Replace the keyboard -- it's not worth paying a technician to diagnose the problem, and there's little that (s)he can do to repair it.

The bad keyboard is a problem straight from the manufacturer. My Gateway MD7818u is brand new and the keys have to be smacked extremely hard and sometimes still do not register. I am guessing if I order a keyboard from Gateway it will be an exact replacement and not a revised one so it will do the same thing.

My Microsft Wireless Comfort Keyboard 4000 is not registering letters when the key is struck. New Batteries installed. Completely random and frequent.

if you are using it with a laptop, they have issues where the USB port can not power the reciever. If that is the case, i would recommend a powered USB hub. Otherwise, completely remove all of the software, take out all of the batteries, reboot the PC, install the software again and repair the devices.

Keys have to be struck over and over to work

Could just be your keyboard settings in control panel click keyboards maybe your settings are set to slow.
You may need to update your driver.
If this does not work your keyboard may just need to be cleaned
If this does not work and you have a cd for the keyboard I would run it again.
Hope these suggestions help

Double striking letters in middle of sentence

This was one of the BEST All-In-One printer HP had ever made
Its a real fortune to still have it.

Verification of color out – happens only after keeping the unit idle for quite some time.
1. Are the cartridges out of ink – check ink levels
2. check self-test report patterns (missing lines or streaked bars)
3. Look for missing colors or ink smears.
4. Was this issue showing up because of any one single color?
5. Was it stored in a warm environment (Stored under direct sunlight?)
6. Manual Cleaning & Cleaning from Driver

Good Luck
