    Remapkey.exe: Remap Windows Keyboard Layout

    The download has a lot of programs, but this is the one you want to use. Be careful with the other applications as they are very powerful.

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.

I have to replace a tire on my 2008 toyota highlander. Do i have to replace all 4 tires?

yes and no ,some places will tell you that as its all wheel drive all 4 should be changed ,but in reality only two tyres ,both tyres on the same axle will need to be changed to comply with tyre regulations for the annual vehicle inspection ,you will not damage the intermediate diff by doing this as any difference in the tyre dimensions caused by wear will be minimal so long as you use the correct size tyres for the vehicle with the correct speed rating ,the intermediate diff is designed to allow for different speeds of the vehicle which is why it has a nice collection of sun and planets gears inside it which are designed to allow for the differences without wearing out ,Like the antifreeze pundits you musnt mix different colours ,well its ony the colour thats different thats all but listen to the so called dealer receptionist experts ,well trust a mechanic with 40+ years in the trade if these pundits were any good they would be on the workshop floor because they would know what their doing but when a mechanic is no good they get given jobs like storeman or receptionists ,van drivers and the like .

When you move and place a new keyboard same brand on your computer what is wrong with keyboard when you cant get it to come on it says keyboard error and the light doesnt come on to tell you the keyboard...

Try the new keyboard in a different computer, to see if the new keyboard is defective.

Try the old keyboard (or a different one) in your computer, to see if the keyboard-port is still functioning correctly.

We have a Gateway Computer that was purchased about 9 months ago. The letters on our new Keyboard are wearing off so much that the I is gone and others are showing great wear. We are retired so it is not...

Key's can be individually purchased, but after replacing a couple of keys it can get expensive.
Your best option would just to buy a new keyboard directly from Gateway, or from a place like BestBuy.
Keyboards where keyboards are as cheap as $20.

How to change or open Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook's keyboard

Keyboard is easy - just turn computer over, unscrew the screws that connect the keyboard to the laptop and then see if there are any screws on the keyboard itself that must be unscrewed. Pry the keyboard off with a small flathead screwdriver, unplug the ribbon and replace with new keyboard by re connecting the ribbon and then snapping it into place and of course replacing whatever screws you took out. Hard drive - you must first locate whereever it is on the bottom of the notebook, unscrew those screws, take it out and reconnect new one. REMEMBER to take out battery during this whole procedure and put a cloth over the LCD screen so you wont scratch it up.
