SOURCE: The keyboard types more than one letter when

try going into the control panel. should see a mouse and key board setting try changing the sensitivity in there. I know you can do that with a mouse. some key boards are just sensitive just give it a light tap and it won't do that your holding it down to long.

  2. Select the Keyboards and Languages tab.
  3. Click Change Keyboards .
    A Text Services and Input Languages window opens.

  5. Select the keyboard(s) you want to use and click OK .
    Figure 5: Add input language: US Dvorak keyboard selected.

    The new keyboard is added to the list of available keyboards and a keyboard icon appears on the system tray, allowing you to switch between the keyboard that you want to use with the mouse.

It's just a glitch that may happen from time to time. The first thing is to reboot, and more likely than not it will be gone.

When I type a letter on keyboard it keeps repeating the letter


The key might be sticking down, which is probably a defect in the product. I tested an ihome keyboard (Bluetooth) and everything except the spacebar was prone to sticking itself down, no pop spill or nothing. So, I recommend to return the keyboard if you still have the receipt and get a Bluetooth Apple keyboard instead, as ihome is good for their docks, but their keyboards suck!

Hi,

Good day. I'll advise you to purchase a new keyboard because the the letter are already not correct which means the keyboard is already broken and there's no way to fix it. Im sorry but that's the only solution that can resolve your issue. Hope this information help you. Have a great day to you.

What is the work of insert key of keyboard.


The insert key is used to toggle between overtype mode and insert mode while typing.

In overtype mode, any letters typed will replace those infront of the cursor.
In insert mode, any letters typed will be inserted where the cursor is. (Useful for if you miss a letter or word out)

Microsoft wireless optical desktop 2000 - keyboard and mouse


There are a number of things that may be causing your problem.

The first thing I would check would be the batteries, with these units having a wireless connection if the batteries become weak they will transmit a weaker signal and thus make it harder for the unit to read. Battery life is variable depending on how often you use your keyboard and mouse, and how far away from the transmitter the keyboard and mouse sit.

Also because the units are wireless there may be interference coming from other wireless devices in your household. Some possible guilty devices maybe cordless phones, Wifi adapters, and even some remotes.

Also Have you installed the intellitype and Intellipoint software for your Mouse & Keyboard. If so you can use it to check your battery life/ signal strenth and set you mouse sensitivity and type repeat rate.

On the bottom of your keyboard & Mouse and on the top of the wireless transponder there are reset buttons. Pushing the transponder 1st and then either or both the mouse and keyboards buttons should resysnc them without the need for a reboot.

Hope this helps

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.
