You can use the ASCII code, here is the table.
http://www.asciitable.com/

Most of the keys on the keyboard refer to an ASCII code. Like if you want to type the letter "A", just hold down the "Alt" key and type "65", then release the "Alt" key. Try it in notepad. I have used this trick a few times. Look at the extended ASCII codes.

ASCII stands for American Standard Code for Information Interchange.

    Delete key not working


    Instead of relying on the physical keyboard to type and enter data, you can use On-Screen Keyboard. On-Screen Keyboard displays a visual keyboard with all the standard keys. You can select keys using the mouse or another pointing device, or you can use a single key or group of keys to cycle through the keys on the screen.

    To type without using the keyboard

    • Open On-Screen Keyboard by clicking the Start button clicking All Programs, clicking Accessories, clicking Ease of Access, and then clicking On-Screen Keyboard.

    Type "osk" no quotes on run...

    My keyboard letter types wrongly to type @ I have to press shift and 2


    UK keyboards use a different key for @.
    If you wish to change the keyboard layout, you can do this by right clicking on your taskbar and select "language bar". When this is done, right click on the keyboard symbol and select "settings". Change the default language (to UK) and your keyboard will type correctly.

    Acer aspire 3003wcli keyboard stopped responding


    You probably activated the "Num Lock" accidently. Just hold down the FN and look for the key that says "num lock" Now you should have your keyboard back and the numbers will just type when you hit the numbers key. I did this to myself yesterday!

    Keyboard & Mouse Problem


    Seems like you Ctrl-key is pressed all the time somehow.
    Make sure that none of the Ctrl-keys is stuck.
    If you try another keyboard, everything should work fine, so just check your keyboard. Maybe you need to replace it.
