Keyboard With Normal Function Buttons

My logitech media elite keyboard is getting bad so i'm in the market for a new keyboard. I thought i could just buy a media elite again, but no logitech hassled around with the crappy keys , resized the function buttons and voila: media 600 keyboard. Thanks, but no thanks. I'm done with those stupid proprietary function buttons. Is it just me, or is there nothing decent on the market? I'm looking for just a "normal" keyboard:

Normal sized function buttons
Normal positioned function buttons
Normal buttons (not laptop style)
Around same feeling as the media elite keyboard

(Thing as volume keys / mute / media / mail / etc. : Nice to have. )

I've had a look on the logitech g15 and don't like it at all:-

-Doesn't type as nice as the media elite
-Who needs a illuminated keyboard? I can type blind with all ten fingers and if you slide off the keyboard you can easily find the 'f' and 'j' because they have that ridge. A illuminated keyboard only distracts. The only light should be numlock, caps-lock and scroll-lock. -A display on a keyboard? No, i have my teamspeak client on my 2nd monitor. I've crashed a lot when flying chopper in bf2 because of the stupid randomly positioned and sized function buttons , so normal sized and positioned function buttons are a must-have. Would also be nice if there would be no need to cover 'escape' with the lid of a 35mm film can. I guess i'm not the only one waiting a keyboard that matches above list, so if you found one, please post. Edit: i have no problem with ergonomic keyboards as long as the space-bar is split in two (or firmly connected so i can cut it in two myself. ). The microsoft ergonomic 4000 is a perfect example of a completely failed keyboard because the space-bar doesn't work that well being curved in two directions. http://www.Pc-maeuse.

Dell Mini Keyboard Smaller Than Normal-keyboard ?

How much smaller is a dell mini keyboard than a normal keyboard? I recently purchased a dell mini laptop and was wondering-how much smaller is the dell mini keyboard than a normal keyboard? I don't want my fingers to feel cramped. I was also wondering how much smaller the screen is. Are items on the screen actually smaller or do you just have to scroll around the window?

Dell mini user's opinions are very welcome.

Media Center Keyboard Doesn't Function When Booting Up

I killed my logitech g15 keyboard because it did not like the glass of coca cola that i pored over it. So i bought myself this keyboard: great little board and has laptop style buttons that type very smooth. But i have a question. The board doesn't function when booting up so i cant get into the bios. It's a wireless keyboard and i use the receiver from my mediacenter remote control. The only thing i could come up with is that the usb receiver is only working when windows is loaded. Any ideas?

Keyboard For Normal Use

So i am looking for a good keyboard for normal use. I don't care about showy leds (but if it is on there oh well) or special features. I write papers alot, as well as game too. I have been looking at keyboards for gaming, and they seem strange, so only a normal one.

Wireless Keyboard With Minimal Functions / Buttons

I'm looking for a quality wireless keyboard that doesn't come covered with crap. I don't want additional function buttons, multimedia controls, lcd info screens, knobs, switches, lights, snow cone makers, cheap plastic add ons, spilt board ergonomic crap or anything else other than the standard keys. I would like a wireless version for home use. Does anybody know of a keyboard like this. I guess an extra button or two wouldn't hurt, but i want the bare minimum, any suggestions?

Keyboard With Volume Control Buttons, Headphone Socket

I'm having a hard time finding a keyboard that meets the following criteria:-

- Volume control buttons, including mute
- Headphone socket
- Very quiet
- Not much more than 60 bucks

Also backlight keys would be a plus, but as i'm having a hard time finding those four, i won't be picky.

Dvd Drive Incorrect Function Error

Recently, prior to formatting my hard-drive i backed up my music, photos, coursework etc. Onto dvds, i burnt them all fine and after formatting the hdd i reinstalled windows and attempted to retrieve my backed up data, which i found out i could not

I have tried two different drives a lite-on dvdrw shw-16h5s and a philips dvd8631 hh 16x dvd+/-rw both of which return a 'f: is not accessible, incorrect function' error, i have tried flashing both drives to the latest firmware and also deleting the upperfilters and lowerfilters from the registry. My data was backed up onto dvd-r media which i know to be of a high quality, and the discs read fine in an identical machine with the same lite-on drive, so ruling them out of the possible problems. The lite-on drive is currently in my machine and if possible it is the one i would much rather sort out and use. I do not have any cd-dvd burning software on my machine, although i did try the nero 6 suite that came with the lite-on drive, which solved nothing.

Trying To Get Screen Back To Normal

About a week ago, everything on my computer was suddenly upside down. I have no idea why. I tried to fix it, but couldn't, so i called dell. His suggestions worked, but then everything was very slow. The computer then froze. I called again, and when everything else failed, he suggested using the reinstallation cd. I did that. At first everything was still very slow, but that problem seemed to straighten out. The problem is that everything on the screen is now looking very big. For instance, if i want to be able to see the things on the right of this box, i would have to use the arrows to move it, because this box is not the normal size. I think that it probably happened because i was playing with the buttons on the front of the computer when i originally tried to fix it. Someone suggested going in through properties and changing the settings. This made sense, but when i tried doing it, everything came out really small, which was even worse than really big. When i turn on the computer, i get a message saying that my screen resolution and color depth are set at a very low level, and would i like windows to automatically fix it. I try saying that i would, but nothing seems to happen. Any suggestions?

Side Buttons On Mx1000

I used to have a ms optical mouse with a button on each side of the mouse that i could assign to use in games for certain actions. The buttons on the mx1000 wont assign to anything, as in the game doesnt seem to see them. Just the normal left, right, and center wheel buttons are seen in the games. Its not a super big deal as i can just map the keys to the keyboard but i would rather have them being used on the mouse. Just wondering if anyone else has this issue or if there is a way arounfd this.

Electrical Noise / Squeal, Is This Normal ?

When playing 3d games (especially when "calculating shadows" in trackmania) or even minimizing/maximizing windows, i can hear a noise/squeal coming from the pc. On closer inspection it seems to come from both the graphics card and the psu. It's not very loud (as in quiet) but noticable. So the question, is this normal?

Mouse With 3 Buttons And A Scroll Wheel

I need to find a mouse that has 3 buttons and a scroll wheel. I do not want one where the scroll wheel is meant to be the 3rd button. I need 3 actual buttons and also a scroll wheel (and if that happens to be a button that is ok i guess). There is some software i use that really needs a middle/3rd button, but it is impractical, annoying, uncomfortable, etc to use the wheel as a button i need to press alot. Any ideas?

Mouse Buttons Non Functional After 5 Or 10 Minutes

This past couple of days i've been reformatting and re-installing windows and tweaking my partition sizes. However, yesterday evening, after finishing loading up windows xp and in the middle of loading my programs my mouse buttons just stopped working for no apparent reason. The cursor movement works just fine but the buttons are non responsive. I reformated and reinstalled windows again this morning thinking everything will be fine but low and behold during my program load up the buttons packed up again after about 5 or 10 minutes. Any ideas?

System Wont Boot In Normal Mode

Ok, the system we are dealing with is quite old. My guess is 10 years. I dont really know all the specs offhand except that it's has:

-Probably about 128 mb sdram
-Old [huge] 400 mhz intel celeron processor
-300 watt generic psu. -Asus p28 motherboard
-Some old rage video card i think

Everything in it has never been changed. At least if it has, it's still been like 5 years. My mom uses this computer with windows 98 (no updates and never goes online) for solitaire! To get to the point - my mom complained that the computer kept booting in safe mode, so i switched it back to normal mode after checking the hardware to make sure everything is fine. Once i tried to boot in normal mode, it would freeze before even getting to the login screen. It probably did this for 6 or 7 times before finally, it froze and the screen went black. When i tried to reboot, it wouldn't even post. All the hardware seemed to be running, but no post. I tried each stick of ram individually and it made no difference. I even switched video cards. Finally, the next morning, i took it completely apart and put it back together. It boots up, but once again, freezes when booting to normal mode. It will, however, still boot into safe mode. Any ideas?

Can I Use An Compact Flash Card Like A Normal Hdd ?

I've purchased an alix 2d3 which is an sbc (single-board computer) and it uses compactflash cards as it's primary storage. Because of this, i must use specific operating systems or linux distributions to make sure they don't cause unnecessary writes because it will quickly kill the card. Can i use an industrial compact flash card to avoid these problems and then use it like a normal hard drive?

It seems like they have "endurance" counts of greater than 2, 000, 000 as opposed to the measly 10, 000 rewrite count for normal cards. However, even 2, 000, 000 writes seems a big small if you're constantly writing log files and such.

Windows 7 Computer Wont Boot In Normal Mode

I was running 64bit vista for a while until i encountered some problems. I tried to fix these problems, but my copy of vista can't be validated by microsoft (it was fine when i installed it, authenticated and worked fine). My computer won't boot in normal mode, only in safe mode. I've decided to upgrade to windows 7, but i'm not sure if i should buy the upgrade or clean install disks. I figure if vista doesn't work properly (crashing whenever it tries to boot in normal mode), then an upgrade won't work. Also, if authentication fails, for whatever reason, then i would be in trouble. I'm not sure what the best solution is. I don't have a problem backing up files i don't want to lose. I just don't want to buy the wrong type of windows 7 installation disk. I've already decided on buying windows 7 home premium (64 bit version), but should i get upgrade package or the clean install disks?

Mapped / Assigned Mouse Buttons On Logitech Mx5x0

A friend and i were arguing about what 'should' be mapped / assigned to the different buttons on our logitech mx5x0 mice. I personally have the left back thumb to double click, front to minimize all, scroll wheel click is alt+f4, button behind the scrollwheel is auto scroll down and the one behind that is restore all, with the front button being mapped to backspace. I use basically the same thing for gaming but when world of warcraft comes out i'll probably make a specific set for it. When i had a 5 button ms intellimouse i had mapped keys much the same way, double click, close, and show/hide desktop.
