Sounds like your keyboard drive is not set right. Do you have a special keyboard with programmable functions? Try changing your keyboard driver. Google your keyboard model + drivers and see if one comes up you can download. Then replace current driver and see if that resolves your issue. It's not a laptop is it? If so, that's another matter.

Symbol @ from my hp is different i can not type


I had that problem before. When i installed windows 8 to my laptop, the keyboard goes that way. Try to click the key from what was the symbol appeared instead while you were pressing the 2 or @ key. Maybe they're switching each other...I cant find what was the reason why it happened, maybe the compatibility or driver issues. When i turned WIN 7 OS back...the keyboard works normally again.

I have a password lock on my black berry and whenever i try to enter my password in the password space, letters and numbers show up instead of the secrecy stars, and im on my 8/10 attempt and my passwords...


This is directly from RIM: Cause As a security feature, the BlackBerry device is designed to allow a maximum of 10 attempts by the BlackBerry device user to type the correct password. After the tenth attempt, if the correct password has not been typed, all data is erased from the BlackBerry device in order to discourage its theft or misuse. ------------------------------------------------- Resolution If you are certain that the password you are typing into the BlackBerry device is correct, please complete the following steps. 1. Deliberately type in an incorrect password five times on your BlackBerry device. Before the BlackBerry device allows a further attempt, you will be prompted to type the word blackberry in plain text. 2. Instead of asterisks, the text you have been entering for the password will now show in plain text. Check to verify that it is correct. 3. If the password is still being rejected by your BlackBerry device as incorrect, connect the BlackBerry device to a computer that has BlackBerry Desktop Manager installed. A prompt will appear in Desktop Manager to type the password for the BlackBerry device. Type in your password to rule out missed key strokes, incorrect symbols, or a problem with the BlackBerry device. 4. If the password you have given is still rejected, and your BlackBerry device is on a BlackBerry Enterprise Server that has software version 4.0 or greater, contact your BlackBerry Enterprise Server Administrator and request that your password be reset for you.

I have the unlocking code for nokia 5800, how to type in handset


There is your unlock instructions for your Nokia Phone... Enjoy :)

***** DO NOT enter the unlock code more than 3 times on BB5 phones, if you do you will NEVER be able to unlock your phone by code *****
1) Power ON your phone
2) Type #PW+CODE+1# using your keyboard
The letter P appear after press 3 times quickly the button star ( * )
The letter W appear after press 4 times quickly the button star ( * )
The letter + appear after press 2 times quickly the button star ( * )
3) The phone will show "SIM Restriction Off," in case it doesn't unlock the phone, you will have to replace step 2 but use 7 instead of 1
4) Device is now unlocked

*** IF THE CODE IS REJECTED, DO NOT TRY AGAIN. ***

Substitute the 1 at the end with 7.

So 2nd time try: #PW+YOURCODE+7#

ie. #pw+000000000000000+7#

The letter P appears after you quickly press 3 times the button star ( * )
The letter W appears after you quickly press 4 times the button star ( * )
The letter + appears after you quickly press 2 times the button star ( * )

The phone shows "SIM Restriction Off" and is unlocked!
