SOURCE: keyboard problems - crtl, shift, alt keys does not work

I met the same problem, and I fixed it.

For my own case, it is mainly a hardware malfunction happening at the data bus(the wide, plastic strand) connecting the keyboard to the mainboard.
I found that part of that strand was bent, so I squeezed it to keep it flat.
everything has been OK since I did that.

SOURCE: Water Damage

I'm on my 4th Microsoft Ergo 4000 keyboard. All the previous 3 of them have been junked by none other than spilt water (not hot and not very cold), thanks to my 3 yr old daughter. I've tried taking the keyboard apart, blow drying and putting it back together. Doesn't seem to work. Junking seems the only option and I'm not pleased to say the least (now that they're at $70 at Best Buy)... I'm astounded that they are so succumbale to split water (leave alone other liquids)... A deliberate flaw to ensure repeat buys?

SOURCE: hp mini keyboard shift key 2 does not type @

it has to do with your keyboard setting, currently you are set to the united kingdom keyboard layout, you will need to change this to Unite States settings assuming that you got vista, you will need to do the following

goto control panel
click on regional and language option (there will be a pop up)
click on the keyboard and languages tab
click on the change keyboard button (another pop up will appear)
click on add
and add the United States Keyboard
change the keyboard setting on the upper drop down menu to United States, and then click ok.....this should solve your problem.

Can't get mouse pad working

If the rest of the keyboard is working i would be inclined to think there is damage to the cable that connects the mouse pad to the rest of the keyboard.

My built in mouse is acting strangly since I installed Windows 7. it will just stop working randomly. if it is working fine and I log off, when I come back it is not working, and I have to re-boot.

Thank you for using FixYa

Hopefully it will just need a new driver for the mouse. Follow the MS link and download a new one.

In some cases it may be necessary to go directly to the manufacturer to get it updated, if they have not kept up with Windows, but that seems unlikely by now with Win7 practically done and Win8 just about to hit.

I hope this was useful and please comment if this was helpful to you.

Computer doesn't recognize keyboard

Try shutting off the keyboard then turning it back on and using the quick connect button. Keyboard goes into a powersave mode every 5 minutes and could be disconnecting. It is also on 2 Ghz technology so a cordless phone could be interfering with the signal.

I have the keyboard but that's all....I need help

Hello Glennfulcher,
The Adesso WKB-4000US wireless keyboard is a great one! I use to have one. What problems are you having with the keyboard? If you are having issues connecting it to the transmitter I would first suggest you check any cordless phones you have around the house. As the WKB series operates at 2.4GHZ so do most cordless phones. This can cause a transmission error with your keyboard. Try these steps if you are having connectivity problems. Because this is the most common connection problem with wireless keyboards and mice.
1. Check all cordless phones for frequency range. 2. If you find a close 2.4 GHZ cordless phone unplug it. 3. Attempt to reconnect the keyboard to the transmitter.
As I am not 100% sure what your question is I'll just give a quick summary of links that may help you get started.

Hi I am using ADESSO WKB-4000US on my new tablet PC. I cannot use the letter U,I,O,J,K,L,M. only numer 4,5,6,1,2,3,0 is display. What shold I disable to make it function as std kb

Hi thanks for your question.
Somewhere on your keyboard there a key that says 'num lock' on it usually on the right upper side of keyboard. Sometimes you need to press 2 keys together to dis-activate it. For example Fn key and Num Lock key. Once you got it dis-activated you should be able to use you normal letters.
Good Luck

Adesso AKB-430UG touchpad problem

It is common if you have a static charge for the cursor to flick all over the screen as the static build up causes a malfunction with the screen. If you have nylon carpets or fabric on your chairs which builds a static charge this will make things worse. Try using the screen on a wooden table where there is a wooden floor and sit on a wooden chair. Before you do anything touch your hands onto something nearby and hold them there for a few seconds to get rid of the static charge. Then turn the power on to the screen while holding on to it. If it all works OK then you can be sure it was a static build up. Then try walking away for a minute or two and then try it again. If the cursor flicks all over the screen, you have got a static build up on your body. This is surprisingly common with laptops or similar devices when people use them on their laps while sitting on couches.

Seemingly loose keyboard connection

Probably a broken wire within the cable itself. If you want to try to salvage the keyboard and it is not under warranty, then you can cut the cord about two inches from where it enters the keyboard, strip the wires and connect them where the old connections were. This will require a bit of dexterity in order to accomplish though.
