I had the same problem but it was limited to specific keys anyway I learned that it was part of a common problem although it is an uncommon symptom because other problem usually occur before this all resulting from one cause and most people will have fixed it before it gets that bad. You need to download the Tablet PC Transmeta Crusoe Code Morphing Software Upgrade, after you install this upgrade you will most likely find other little problems that you've ignored will go away (like a ding sound and the mouse/keyboard freeze, when using the ball on the keyboard sometimes seems to have a mind of it's own)

The address below will take you directly to the page you need to start at when you get to it click the button that says download and follow the instructions. There are quite a few updates and upgrades for the tc1000 available on that site and you should take some time to look through and see if there are other problems you're having that there are solutions for.

Good luck, I hope this helps!

What?  No, that's pretty whacked.  Does it happen in all OS, even if you boot to a LiveCD?  I think your OS has a wacky driver or IME loaded for it, but it could be an unplugged (or bad USB connection) thing all right.  Get in there and confirm your connections are solid, and check your IME (input method filter, e.g. for typing in Thai.)

    How to Configure your Linksys router with wireless security


    Launch your Internet Explorer, Netscape or your Mozilla.

    On the Address, Search or URL, type: http://192.168.1.1, then hit Enter/Return. A login screen will appear. Type admin for the password and leave the username blank or empty then hit “OK”.

    Note: If it doesn’t take admin as the password you might have changed it when you have ran the RUN ME FIRST CD that came with the router so try other passwords.

    If you cannot remember the password, I regret to tell you but, you have to reset the router and, reconfigure it again. Next time, remember the password to avoid unnecessary reset and reconfiguration.

    To reset the router to factory default
    1] Press and hold the reset button for 30 sec., after that
    2] Unplug the power keep holding down the reset button for another 30 sec.
    3] Then, plug back the power keep holding down the reset button for 30sec., after that
    4] Release the reset button.

    Note: Configuring WEP in the router varies depending on the model number and firmware version of your Linksys Router.

    Cisco Interface (If your Setup page has a Cisco Logo)

    Go to Wireless Tab > Wireless Security > Click the drop down arrow then select WEP:

    Regular Linksys Router Interface (If your Setup page has a no Cisco Logo)

    Under Setup > Click WEP Key Settings or Edit WEP Key Settings

    Using passphrase 64bit
    Encryption LEVEL 64bit > type a passphrase > click Generate > copy key1 on a piece of paper (10hex character). Then hit Apply or Save Settings.

    For manual key entry of 64bit encryption:
    Encryption LEVEL: 64bit > Under Key 1 type a 10 digit character from A-F and 0-9.
    (e.g.: A0B3F58C9E, 0123456789, ABCDEFABCD). Then hit Apply or Save Settings.

    Using passphrase 128bit
    Encryption LEVEL128bit > type a passphrase > click Generate > copy key1 on a piece of paper (26hex character). Then hit Apply or Save Settings.

    For manual key entry of 128bit encryption:

    Encryption LEVEL: 128bit > Under Key 1 type a 26 digit character from A-F and 0-9.
    (e.g.:0123456789ABCDEF9874561230, 012345678901234567890123456, ABCDEFABCDABCDEFABCDABCDEF).

    Then hit Apply or Save Settings.

    If you want better security for Vista computers, you may want to select WPA personal (WPA-PSK) under security > set the Algorithm to TKIP and type your personal security code (any code you want, any characters)

    Then hit Apply or Save Settings.

    My keyboard typing multiple letters


    Keyboards on Windows computers can repeat letters when key press sensitivity is too high. This problem can be rectified by adjusting your keyboard\'s repeat frequency. Once this is lowered, key presses will occur slower and you will not have the letters repeated instantly.

    Click"Start," then "Control Panel." Click "Hardware and Sound," followed by "Keyboard." Move the "Repeat delay" slider further to the left below the "Character repeat" option. The further left the slider moves, the longer the delay will be before a character repeats.
    If fails

    Gather your supplies. There are commercial kits available, but a can of compressed air, a lint-free cloth or wipes, mild dishwashing liquid, and a vacuum cleaner with a soft brush are all you really need for a basic cleaning. After turning off your computer and unplugging your keyboard, gently shake the keyboard upside down over some newspaper to dislodge loose crumbs and particles. Use the can of compressed air to blow a stream of air between the keys. Repeat Step 2. Dampen a lint-free cloth with a diluted solution of dishwashing liquid and water to wipe down the keys. Use the vacuum cleaner brush attachment to suck away any remaining dirt or debris. If you have a membrane-type keyboard (it doesn\'t have a spring under each key) and the keys are truly grungy, you can remove the keys with a small screwdriver and use cotton swabs and 90% isopropyl alcohol to get it sparkling clean
    If you are still feeling industrious, next you can tackle cleaning your mouse Of course, if cleaning your keyboard seems a truly undesirable task, you can always buy one for around $20.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi

    Try system restore. Go to START>ACCESSORIES>SYSTEM TOOLS>SYSTEM RESTORE>CHOOSE PREVIOUS RESTORE DATES. Use other restore dates if needed.

    Or try this

    If your laptop keyboard types wrong characters, it is rather a software issue than an hardware one. This can happen if you accidentally press certain keys on your keyboard, which enable a certain kind of function.
    Try the following steps in case your laptop keyboard displays wrong characters:
    1.Go to the control panel option
    Click ? 'Regional and Language Services' ? 'Languages' ? 'Details' ? 'Key Settings'
    2.Select the option 'Switch Between Input Languages' and click on 'Change Key Sequence'
    3.Ensure that all the check boxes are unchecked in this window and do the same for 'Switch to...(Keyboard Type)'
    4.Click ?
    'Ok' ? 'Ok' ? 'Apply' ? 'Ok'.
    This should solve your problem

    Delayed keyboard response on Dell Inspiron E1705 Laptop


    Is the mouse response sluggish as well during these times?

    In most cases, it means the computer is busy with another process. The keys you press stay in the keyboard buffer until the CPU has time to process them.

    Check your CPU busy time when this happens. In Windows XP, press ctl-alt-del to start the task manager, the select the processes tab to see if one process is tying up the system (by % of CPU), or press the performance tab to see CPU usage. If it is pegged at close to 100%, something is tying up the system.

    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?.
