Keyboard letter not working


lol. The best answer is to clean the keyboard or, if necessary, get a new one (for your computer, it'll cost about $30 for a replacement keyboard.) In the meantime, the easiest way to get any character you can't get from your keyboard is to use the Character Map application. (In XP: Start>Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Character Map). Find the character you want, click on it, click on "Select", click on "Copy", and then paste the character normally as you would for a copy/paste. Hope this helps! Good luck!

Keyboard not functioning


It may be a fault in the keyboard driver or in the keyboard itself. However if the character you need is not available on the keyboard directly it is possible to get any character by using the ASCII char code entry method. First off search the internet for a ASCII character number associating table (for a chart I like best, check here http://michaelgoerz.net/blog/2008/09/ascii-table/ascii.gif) now on this chart you have to use common fonts (IE: Ariel, times new roman, ect.) because some of the TTF fonts do not have all the characters in them available.
Now to practice using the characters, load Notepad and find the character you want to display from the chart (note: the number like 000d and 00h actually means 000 decimal and 00 hexadecimal, only use the number with the "d" after it with this method), on Notepad, after you pick out the character you want to display, press and hold the ALT key, and on your keypad (on most keyboards it is on the right side and resembles a calculator type keypad) while holding the ALT key down enter the number of the character you want to display (do not include the "d", only the number) then release the ALT key and that character should display for you in Notepad. Almost all standard fonts has the regular characters and some has the extended characters, you will have to check to see if the font uses them by trial and error. this method is a long lost forgotten means of putting characters into your documents which does not have keys on a standard keyboard (most standard keyboards only have 101 keys so this is the only way of using all the 255 character available in common fonts).
This is a built in function of all computers that uses Microsoft OS's and even DOS, HDOS, EDOS, (well all the DOS's), and you can use them anywhere you can type anything from your keyboard, (emails, letters, databases, spread sheets, etc.) if you can type from the keyboard to any program you can use these characters in this manner.
I hope this help you out!

How do I type my uk pound sign I have changed the language settings


The £ character is part of the font character set which changes when u change character sets.
If you want to stay with the language settings you have you must determine where the £ is in the character set.
My £ is produced when I enter ALT + 156. The character is in the upper 128 of characters. Number 156 to be exact. For the British KBD it is mapped to a key to make it a single keystoke.

Had plugs changed runs rough


Sounds like a mixup in the firing order-Assuming the engine ran OK before the plugs were changed.

Ford 302 V8 firing order is 1-5-4-2-6-3-7-8 Distributor rotates counterclockwise (CCW) Cylinders 1-4 is on passenger side (front to back) Cylinders 5-8 is on driver side (front to back)

25 character product key not working,


Be sure that you are typing the correct key; do not mixup "ESS" and "FIVE", "OH" and "ZERO", "BEE" and "EIGHT", and "ONE" and "ELL".

Failing that, return the product to the store where you bought it,
and/or get visit the store, and get them to read the code out loud to you.

Failing that, call 1-800-RU-LEGIT, and report that the store where you bought it has sold you a "bootleg" ("unauthorized") copy of Microsoft software.

Printing mixup


Your problem is a computer configuration issue, not a printer problem.

Without knowing any details of your system configuration, it is impossible to offer and further advice.

Character keys


There is a NumLck/ScrlLck (Num Lock/ Scroll) key on the top row right side of your keyboard. If it will be on, then you can use the keys as Numeric and if it off then it will work as character.
To toggle between on/off you can try the following.
  1. Press Fn + NumLck/ScrlLck, if it not works then do step 2.
  2. Press NumLck/ScrlLck, and try if it not works then do step 3.
  3. Press Shift + NumLck/ScrlLck.

Please post your feed-back.
Thanks

Gateway Keyboard left shift key adds a pipe character


The driver will not fix the problem, as this is a mechanical problem. I had the same problem and was able to fix it. Instructions with pictures can be found at: http://lotus.kick-***.net/keyboard

Here are the instructions without the pictures:

I had a problem with my Gateway keyboard where whenver I pressed the left shift key, it type a pipe | (verticle line) character. This is the same character that is above the back slash character . I searched the internet and people were suggesting reloading drivers and apparently Gateway was suggesting a destructive reload of the hard drive. That's absolutely rediculous.
After some research, I determined that on some European style keyboards, the backslash/pipe key is between the left shift and the "Z" key. So, I removed the left shift key to experiment. The key simply pops off by sticking a screwdriver under it. (It is not necessary for you to do this).

When I used a little screwdriver to press on the center of the plastic (red arrow) I would get a proper shift key. However, when I pressed to the right (green arrow), I would get the backslash character. If I pushed at the red and green arrow together, I would get the pipe character.

Ah-hah! I determined the problem. The inside of the keyboard is a "universal" type and can be used with U.S. or Europeon keyboard layouts. For whatever reason, the left shift key was hitting both dots under the key. (The dots are visible in the pictures below.)
To resolve the problem, it is necessary to disassemble the keyboard. On the bottom of the keyboard is a bunch of screws. Remove all of the screws. If you have any rubber feet, there is probably screws under the rubber feet. The feet are just held on by sticky taope, so they peel right off.

Once all of the screws are removed the top and bottom halves seperate easily. The circuits stay in the bottom half of the keyboard, so set the top half of the keyboard to the side. The red arrow marks where the left shift key presses down.

Pull back the top layer and you will see the flexible circuits. These are also made up of multiple layers. When a key is pressed it pushes these layers together to complete the switch circuit. The red arrow marks the shift key. The green arrow marks the backslahs/pipe key for European style keyboards. The blue arrow is yet another key that is not used on U.S. keyboards.

Pull back the first layer of the switch circuit to expose the space between the circuit layers.

Place a small piece of electrical tape on the extra backslash/pipe circuit connection as marked by the red arrow.

Now simply reassemble the keyboard and that weird pipe character will never accidentally show up again.
