The problem with my microsoft 6000 v2.0 keyboard is this. I have changed batteries (4x with brand new), the light on keyboard comes on, then after about a minute, the light goes off and keyboard does not...

Not to sound patronizing, did you push the buttons in the order it requires you to? The sequesnce and timing is important. Also, the keyboard and mouse have to be pretty close to the receiver, and the receiver need to be almost completely in a direct visual line with the devices on these MS keyboard desktop sets. I had a lot of trouble with mine until I put the receiver within 1-1/2 to 2 feet of the keyboard and mouse. Next time buy a logitech top-of-the-line set and you will not have this kind of trouble. I no longer have trouble with my 6000 desktop set, though, just in case you are wondering. I use the Logitech set on my newer computer and the 6000 on the XP .
Hope this helps.

My keyboard seems to type letters, especially x

Hmm, sounds like a electrical fault but it could be a virus so scan your computer just in case.

Shift key not working

It's entirely possible that the keyboard may be defective out of the box. But just in case, see if you can try cleaning out that portion of the keyboard, on the off chance that debris may have snuck into the key area. Use a can of compressed air (and be careful not to get any of the liquid duster gas in there, as that could potentially damage the components). If you have access to another computer though try using the keyboard on that computer as well, see if it's specific to just your computer, or the keyboard itself. If the shift key works fine on another computer, then there may be something goofy with your keyboard and/or language settings (Check your Control Panel and just review your settings to make sure you're using the proper layout for the language you wish to use). If the shift key still doesn't work on the other computer though, then I would bring the keyboard back along with proof of purchase, back to where you bought it from and have them replace it with a new one.

Set up of a Microsoft wireless keyboard & mouse

The devices probably came with a USB cable and a receiver, or just a USB equiped receiver, that you need to plug into your computer. Go ahead and plug the cable and receiver into the computer so that your wireless mouse and keyboard has a means to communicate with the computer. Next, Here is a website address where you can download drivers for your mouse and keyboard. You must first choose either mouse or keyboard, then the exact product and model, then the operating system, and finally the language. repeat the process for the other device (mouse or keyboard, whichever you did not choose first). Good Luck! And let me know if there are any further problems.
