If you have a special software (like driver) for this keyboard, reset it to default or reinstall the drivers. If the problem persists maybe your keyboard is broken. If it is in warranty get to the seller and tell him your problem.

You may try to attach a USB Wireless Mouse and Keyboard set and bypass the system you are currently using. If it is a Keyboard only problem, try a USB independent keyboard and again bypass the computers unit to see if the problem still exisists.

The Five ways to make your keyboard easier to use


5 ways to make your keyboard
easier to use For most people, the keyboard is the main way to enter information into and control their computer. But are you controlling your keyboard, or is your keyboard controlling you?
If you make typing mistakes or find your keyboard a bit uncomfortable, it’s not hard to correct those problems. Here’s how to quickly and easily change your keyboard settings and comfort options.
1. Get to know your keyboardEven if you’ve been using a PC for a long time, there may be features on your keyboard you don’t know about. Take a moment to get to know your keyboard so you can be more efficient when you're working.
2. Change keyboard settingsOnce you’ve gotten more familiar with your keyboard, there are a few settings you can change to help you work more smoothly.
You can alter:
  • How long you need to press a key before the keyboard character starts repeating.
  • The speed at which keyboard characters repeat, which helps you to avoid typing errors.
  • The rate at which the mouse pointer blinks, which can help its visibility.
Here's how to change keyboard settings in Windows Vista or in Windows XP .
3. Take shortcuts Even if you're a whiz with the mouse for Windows 7, Windows Vista or Windows XP, keyboard shortcuts are typically a more efficient way to work. They're called shortcuts because they reduce multiple clicks into one quick press of keys, like hitting a chord on a piano.
Getting to know a few keyboard shortcuts for the things you do all the time, like saving or closing files, can make using your PC much easier and faster.
Here are just a few popular keyboard shortcuts that work for both versions of Windows:
Press this
To do this
Windows logo keykey_win_logo.png Open the Start menu
ALT+TAB
Switch between open programs or windows
CTRL+S
Save the current file or document (works in most programs)
CTRL+C
Copy the selected item
CTRL+Z
Undo an action
Windows logo key key_win_logo.png +F1
Display Windows Help and Support
ESC
Cancel the current task
Application key key_application.png Open a menu of commands related to a selection in a program. Equivalent to right-clicking the selection.
For more, see the detailed list of keyboard shortcuts for Windows Vista, or Windows XP. Note: shortcuts for Windows 7 are the same as those listed for Windows Vista.
4. Make it easier to press multiple keysDo you find it difficult to press multiple keys at once? For example, if pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL is an acrobatic feat, you can set up Sticky Keys. With Sticky Keys you can hit one key at a time in a keyboard shortcut. You can even set it to make a noise so you know it's working.
together.gifYou can set up Sticky Keys in Windows 7, Windows Vista or Windows XP. (Hint: Press your “SHIFT” key 5 times in a row, then click on the link, to get going with Sticky Keys in Windows 7 or Windows Vista.)
5. Find a comfortable keyboardIt might also be time for you to evaluate the ergonomics of your desktop. Microsoft offers a full line of Natural and Comfort Curve ergonomic keyboards to ensure you're comfortable when you're working on your computer. Having the right keyboard can really make a difference!
Tips for using your keyboard properly
If a new keyboard isn’t in your future, be sure to use your current keyboard properly to avoid soreness or injury to your wrists, hands, and arms. This is particularly important if you use your computer for long periods of time.
Curious about how to create a more ergonomic work space for yourself? Check out these tips to help you work more comfortably and reduce your risk of painful injuries or disorders.
Here are some general tips to help you avoid problems:
  • Place your keyboard at elbow level, with your upper arms relaxed at your sides.
  • Center your keyboard in front of you. If your keyboard has a numeric keypad, you can use the spacebar as the centering point.
  • While typing, use a light touch and keep your wrists straight.
  • When you're not typing, relax your arms and hands.
  • Take short breaks every 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Type with your hands and wrists floating above the keyboard, so that you can use your whole arm to reach for distant keys instead of stretching your fingers.
  • Avoid resting your palms or wrists on any type of surface while typing. If your keyboard has a palm rest, use it only during breaks from typing.

My laptop keyboard when i type in letters the letters that i hit are not the same ones that come up on the screen what would cause this laptop not even a yaer old


I guess the keyboard layout (or language settings) have changed. It is easier to help you if you tell us the operating system and which keys are changed. But I'll try to help you here.
If you have XP, open control panel and select 'Regional and Language Settings'. Following window will appear.
select 'Language' tab and click 'Details' button.
viscamtech_64.jpg
When the following window appears, check what is in the top combo box (circled in red).
If you have a US English keyboard, it should be English (United States). Otherwise select the correct one from the combo box itself.
viscamtech_65.jpg
If the correct keyboard layout is not there in the list, click the add button and add the keyboard layout you want. Then select it as the default language from the combo box.
Hope this helps you!
Good luck, and thanks for using FixYa!

Did you install the Logitech Set Point software? If you did, you can edit the Function key assignments by opening that program. There are other ways to change your keyboard settings, pressing Left Alt and Shift can do this with Windows 7 by default. To check this in Windows 7, click Start > Control Panel. Under Clock, Language, and Region select Change Keyboard or other Input method. Once that window opens, click on the Keyboards and Languages tab and click Change Keyboards. Then select the Advanced Key Settings tab. There is a section marked Hot Keys for Input Language.

The manual and other documentation for the Logitech ex110 is available here: http://www.logitech.com/en-us/433/154?selectedcrid=433&selectedcid=154&WT.z_sp=Product&osid=&bit= .

I have a compaq Laptop and I can't figure out how to use the ? symbol i've tried everything


I don't mean to make it seem like you don't know what you are doing, but usually the most simple of things are overlooked. Did you try holding down the left (or right) shift key, and then clicking the ?/ button?

if that doesn't work, then perhaps your keyboard settings in windows is not set to the correct language. if that is the case, let me know what version of windows you are using, and I'll guide you through how to change the default keyboard language setting.

Cannot get backslash (\) character to display


To get a backslash, you need to print the upper ascii character 92 (decimal). On most machines you can get upper ascii characters by holding down the Alt key and typing the decimal value on the numeric keypad. On the little IBM machine I'm typing this on, there is no numeric keypad, but if I switch on numlock (by doing shift-scroll-lock) the j-k-l keys become 1-2-3 etc. Now id I hold down Alt and type 92 (i.e.keys 9-k), this is what I get: \ Howzzat?.
