Question about Computers & Internet
Keyboard is typing wrong letters in some programs and will not type an "h" at all. Each key will type many different letters when touched, but if held down for repeat it repeats the same letter. The non-letter keys type correctly. The number keys will type different numbers. I have had this keyboard for a long time and never had this problem before. It is the Microsoft Wireless Intellitype Keyboard.
First of all make sure the batteries are fresh. Download the latest driver. Make sure the path to the wireless dongle is OK, not blocked. Re-seat the dongle. If all else fails try a wired keyboard. Consider getting a new keyboard.

Testimonial: "I do go through a lot of batteries with it, so that is a possibility. The dongle is okay and I can try a wired keyboard if all else fails, but I went wireless because the cords were too short, but I do have several extensions now, so that is not a problem. Thank you these are great suggestions. "

Sounds like your num lock has been toggled on by mistake. Look for a key that says NmLK. It will be in the same color blue. That key may also be the scroll lock key(ScrLk) that should solve your problem.

It sounds like your keyboard is starting to go. Try plugging a usb keyboard and using that. If your keyboard needs replacing, it may be around $50, but that will depend.

This means that NUM LOCK is set to on. All you have to do is to press the Fn key and then locate the NumLock key and press it. The num lock is usually also highlighted with the same color as the Fn key.
Please comment back if you still have issues. I will be glad to assist you further.
