Question about Microsoft Wireless Optical Desktop Pro Keyboard
Hi, I'm having an intermittent problem in which the 'o' key activates the "assign keys" dialog box. While typing, when I hit the 'o' the dialog box pops up and halts all progress until it's been clicked off.
I've tried changing the batteries, and returning the assigned keys to default. To my knowledge, there was no change to the computer or other obvious precipitating factors (which was why I initially suspected it might be the batteries).
This is the second time it has happened. The first time it occured, it was solved by either returning assigned buttons to default or sheer coincidence.
What I would suggest is reinstalling the keyboard software from Microsoft. This is better than resettnig the defaults as it will mend any issues the keyboard software is causing, which is probably the case. When you go to Control Panel and uninstall the keyboard software. that is to say you do this once you have the CD or have downloaded the latest software version from micosoft.com/downloads You may find that when you click on the keyboard software to uninstall it in Add Remove that there is another option titled Repair, if so, choose that and let the OS repair the installation.
