Is this wireless? If so you probably need to re-sync. If not. check the connections (again) and do a hard boot. (power button on the machine). I know for sure this happens with a ps/2 mouse, not really so much with a keyboard.

Good Luck!

My keyboard is typing we instead of e again sd instead of d.Pl help.

Your laptop may have a PS/2-type connector on the back (mine does) for attachment of a
PS/2-type mouse or keyboard. A workaround to your problem would be to plug in a
standard keyboard into this port, and use that until you resolve the problem with
your chicklet (standard laptop) type keyboard.

When you plug the keyboard in, performa an "Add Hardware" operation to prompt Windows to
find the new keyboard (under WinXP):
START > Control Panel > Add Hardware

The T4010 emachine does not recognize the keyboard, but does recognize the mouse, is the answer a new motherboard?

If replacing the keyboard (try a USB keyboard, instead of a PS/2 keyboard) does not help, and the old keyboard _does_ work when connected to some other computer, then a new motherboard is the next logical step.

No connection to my keyboard

What type of keyboard is that?
USB or PS/2?

If it's a USB keyboard you can try all the USB ports on your PC

For PS/2 keyboards - try another PS/2 keyboard

You can try to shutdown the PC again for couple of mins.
disconnect the keyboard cable, then reconnect it.

Keyboard not working

I presume it is a PS/2 keyboard one that plugs into the Green Connector at rear of PC, if so, then these ports often fault, with the mouse being OK. The best way around this is to get a cheap USB keyboard, and install it. Ensure you set the USB ON in BIOS too. You could try uninstall/reinstall of KB from device manager first.

My keyboard is corrupt

If your Keyboard is corrupted then you need to replace with it by another keyboard. Until then you can use Desktop Keyboard. To use Desktop Keyboard Go to START -> All Programs -> Accessories -> Accessibility -> Click on On-Screen Keyboard.

Types wrong letters

It sounds like you have the 10,12,15,PS selector switch on PS with a 10, or 12 print wheel installed. Return to the left margin, move the switch to 10 and type.

what is the connection type of your keyboard? is it PS/2 or USB?

well, if your keyboard is a PS/2 type, there might be a problem with the PS/2 keyboard port, because you've said that it works well with your other PC.

if your using a USB type of keyboard, well try to check if your SYSTEM BIOS supports USB Keyboards. because there are some PC doesnt supports USB keyboard on its BIOS. if it supports, well, enable the USB Devices on your BIOS settings to ON.
