What keyboard brand and model do you have?

I know for laptops that if you have the numlock on it changes those keys to type numbers. It could be the same for your desktop keyboard if it doesn't have a numpad at the right side.

When I type letters or numbers using my key board nothing appears on my Desktop. Microsoft Basic Keyboard When I type nothing prints out I disconnect it and re connect it still has the same problem.


if your using the numbers keypad to the right on your keyboard, it sounds like you need to press the numlock button to activate the keys. if thats not the case , you may want to replace your keyboard if this is an issue that involves the upper number keys above the qwerty board.

Your text prints out formatted helter-skelter all over the page? How about trying print to PDF and seeing how that looks when you load the PDF. Alternately, you can reinstall the printer's driver or change the settings of the program you're printing from.
It sounds like your browser's doing a bad job of rendering to print. Try cutting and pasting to a word processor and printing from there.

Laptop key board are messd up


If you have changed the keyboard type in 'regional and language options' you can manually pull of the keys and stick them back on where they should be. It sounds like someone has done that to your keyboard so no regional setting could fix this.
Instructions for Windows Vista
Click Start and then Control Panel In Control Panel, if you are in Classic View, click on Control Panel Home (top left corner) Open Clock, Language, and Region Click on Regional and Language Options. Click the Keyboards and Languages tab and then click Change keyboards. Under Installed services, click Add. In the Add Input Language dialog box, select the keyboard layout you would like to add from the list available and click OK. The keyboard layout you added will be included in the list. To set the new layout as your default, select it from the list. Click OK to save your changes You can switch between different input languages (= keyboard languages) by clicking on the Language Bar button or by pressing the Alt + Shift keys

@ key not working


Keyboards can become dirty after periods of extended use, especially if users commonly eat or smoke near the computer. If a keyboard becomes dirty enough, its performance can be affected. Common problems include dead or stuck keys and repeated characters during typing.
Shut down the computer and detach the keyboard connector before any cleaning procedure. Do not remove or connect a keyboard while the computer is running. Doing so may damage the machine, especially a non-USB based keyboard
For a quick cleaning, turn the keyboard upside down and use a can of compressed air to blow out any foreign matter. Be sure to do this in a location where falling debris can be cleaned up easily. Turn the keyboard upside down and tap on it a few times. You should see a bit of dirt fall out. Change the angle and tap harder to make most of it get out
Clean the sides of the keys with a cotton swab dipped in isopropyl alcohol.
For a more thorough cleaning, remove all of the keys. Do this by gently prying up each key with a small screwdriver or a similar lever. When the keys have been removed, blow out any debris with compressed air. With a moist (but not wet) cloth, lightly swab all surfaces. Do not allow any type of fluid to enter the keyboard.
Clean the individual keys and place them back in the keyboard.
and an alternate method : Alternate Method
  1. Switch off the machine and disconnect the keyboard.
  2. Turn the keyboard upside down and remove all the screws.
  3. Lift the top half of the keyboard (The one with the keys on it) off and put the bottom half to one side.
    • There may be some clips on the keyboard, also, check for screws hidden under labels.
  4. Turn the top half around so that you can see the backs of the keys, squeeze the tabs on each key to remove it, the space-bar will have a metal rod, this may be a pain to refit, but is not impossible.
  5. Fill a bowl with hot soapy water (Fairy Liquid works well)
  6. Dump the keys into the bowl and scrub with a brush.
  7. Remove the keys and leave to dry or dry with a hair dryer.
  8. Place the empty top half of the keyboard into the bowl and scrub until clean.
  9. Once everything is dry, reassemble the keyboard.
  10. Press both halves of the keyboard firmly together, if you miss the clips in the middle your keys wont reach the circuits and wont spring up.
  11. Plug in your keyboard, switch on your PC, enjoy.
