Keyboard not typing @ sign

I have just purchased a new computer and plugged in my keyboard. It doesn't matter what I do I can't get the @ sign to work all it keeps typing is ' with or without the shift key. I have tried changing the regional language settings etc. but no luck. Any ideas? I have also tried another keyboard but still no joy. It all worked fine on my last computer and I am typing this on my other computer with no problems with the sign. I am sure it is a settings problem somewhere but just can't find it.

Re: Keyboard not typing @ sign

Hold the shift key and press 2 (not in the numeric section) and you should be able to do a @ sign, somehow these two buttons have exchanged their properties.

The space bar on my desk top computer will not work. I have to use the (-) sign to space out my words when I type. What can I do to get it to work? Can a virus cause it to do that?

This is an electro-mechanical problem with the keyboard. A virus could cause this on a programmable keyboard, but most likely the keyboard itself is bad. Try plugging the keyboard into another computer or laptop (some laptops will accept a 5pin or usb) and see what happens. If it works, scan for viruses. (It is doubtful it is a virus.)

I just purchased a used micro innovations wireless keyboard. What kind of adapter do I need and how can I get the driver and user guide?

You should have received a sensor unit when you purchased the keyboard. Unless you have this I'm afraid the keyboard is useless. The keyboard I'm using to type this is a wireless type but the sensor is built into the actual computer so the keyboard is of no use to anyone unless they have the same type computer. I've never seen a sensor on it's own without the keyboard at auctions but I've seen plenty of keyboards without sensors.
The sensor can be in many forms but usually it's a half round module with a flat face which points toward the keyboard and has a cable attached with a USB plug on the end.
I'd be returning to where you got the keyboard and asking for the module. If it's not available, ask for a refund as it's of no use as it is. Maybe the seller didn't realise the module actually went with the keyboard and still has it. It's worth a try.
If you do get hold of the module write back and I will then try to track down the driver although your computer may recognize the sensor and have the driver ready to go. Often just plugging it in Windows will recognize it and load it all for you. A user guide isn't really necessary as it's just a matter of plugging in your sensor loading or let windows load the driver, pop a battery or two (usually AAA type) in the keyboard, pressing the one and only button on the bottom of the keyboard to sync the keyboard to the remote and away you go. All you have to do is replace the batteries when prompted or the keyboard becomes erratic or stops working. BUT try to get that module first or your money back.

As a last resort you could possibly try the manufacturers or importers for a spare module.

Good Luck

Go to Start Menu - Control Panel - Date, Time, Language, Regional Options - Add Other Languages - Languages Tab - Details - Check the Country and Keyboard settings.
You may need to Add a new setup, switch to that, Reboot, remove the original.

Keyboard losing print on letters that are used a lot

Depends on how much you want to pay...and how much the "look" of the keyboard matters to you. You can just order keyboard stickers, both black and transparent (and colors, for that matter, even Hello Kitty) from various sites, usually under $10.

Tarantula doesn work after installing new firmware

there seems to be alot of firmware issues with alot of razors products at the moment, use another keyboard for the minute and navigate to their site, downgrade your firmware to the one that worked. or alternatively restore your computer to a restore date that occured before you installed the new firmware/drivers.

hope this helps

Keyboard problems.

1. Restart the PC. 2. Hit F12 key repeatedly as soon as the PC turns ON. This will bring up the Boot Menu. 3. Select DELL Diagnostics. 4. Select the Complete / Full from the list of options. 5. Let the tests run which may take about an hour. Make sure you are there in front of the PC for the first 10-15 minutes, because it would need your inputs. 6. This will test the keyboard and USB ports too. 7. This will also verify for you whether the keyboard works when Windows hasn't started. 8. If all the tests pass and your keyboard is still working after sometime, you have issues with Windows: Start you computer in Safe Mode and check the USB drivers and the keyboard drivers. 9. Now, if you continue having issues even when you are running the diagnostics, you need to check your hardware viz. keyboard (try installing another keyboard if you have one) and the USB port. PLEASE REVERT BACK WITH THE RESULTS. I WOULD LOVE TO HELP YOU FURTHER ON THIS, IF THE ISSUE CONTINUES.
