Wired Slim Keyboard With Standard Layout


I'd like a wired slim keyboard with standard layout. None of that "compact" bs that would make me hit the wrong key because its not where it usually is. Can anyone recommend a good replacement for me? I saw a couple i liked at fry's but couldnt justify spending 50$ for a keyboard today. I may have to eventually though if there arent any good suggestions.

Soft Touch Keyboard With Standard Layout

I've got an ms "digital media pro" and i've finally beaten it to death, dropping it at a lan. The easy choice to replace it was a logitech g11 or g15, but after using one in person i hate how they changed the size/layout of some of the keys, specifically the space bar. Can someone reccomened the me a soft touch (quiet to type on) keyboard, with a more standard layout?

Preferably from a more well known brand, just so its easier to find and order one. Edit: wired and wireless options are ok, however i'd prefer wireless options only if you've used one and know what kind of battery it uses, and how long it lasts.

Classic Wired Keyboard With Strait Layout

I'm looking for a membrane type keyboard with a resistance similar to what was common on a mid 90's cheap keyboard (i'm actually still using the 12yo keyboard from a whitebox 486). I don't want a spring type keyboard, but niether do i want something as mushy as a laptop or the ms/logitech models that are the only ones i can try at local boxmarts. My only other absolute requirement is a classic strait layout with the insert-page down keys are layed out in 2 rows of 3 (not 3 of 2, or a laptop style column). I'd strongly prefer a wired model for security reasons, and could care less about a string of multimedia buttons although as long as they don't take up alot of space i don't really care if they're there gathering dust.

Remapping The Keyboard Layout In Windows

Well, i've put xp on my laptop for some old games (as i'm going on holiday and can't bring my desktops), but the keyboard has been detected wrong. The down arrow is detected as a combination of "f1 /n b", and delete is "f1 5 6=-". It is completely retarded. Is there a way to tell windows what key does what? How to remapping the keyboard layout in windows?

Flat Keyboard With Full Feature Layout

I'm looking for a very flat keyboard, flat keys as well (laptop style) but with a full-feature keyboard layout. For reference of what flatness i'm talking about, i used to own a revoltec lightboard advanced (which broke last year): but that board has the arrow keys integrated near the enter key, which i don't like. Same story with the logitech ultra flat keyboard. It's flat, but not with a normal layout. So what i want is a full layout, with separate "islands" for arrows and pgup etc, and a separate numpad, but then flat. Been searching my butt off, but i haven't found one yet.

Why Does Firefox Re-emulate The Qwerty Keyboard Layout ?

I rearranged the keys on my laptop to dvorak with the exception of u, f, j and h (because j and f have backwards sockets). Then i set windows to use the dvorak layout. Excellent! It works. Now let's go browse the internet. Wt? Firefox uses the qwerty layout? Everything else in windows uses the layout windows specifies (which is dvorak). In short: firefox seems to emulate a qwerty keyboard rather than relying on windows for the keyboard layout. This is absolute retardation. Why isn't there a firefox plug-in that forces firefox to comply with windows' layout settings?

Edit :: never mind, this is retarded. Windows' layout feature is broken. The qwerty layout is used when i type in games, remote desktop, etc. Windows keyboard software emulation sucks. (Underline x100000000)

Why Are Slim Optical Drive Form Factors And Slim Ide Not Standardized ?

I bought a sony crx880a assuming most optical drives have the same dimensions and one type of slim ide connection. The crx880a does not fit in my norco rpc4020 due to the cases' slim slots four perpendicular protrusions preventing install and placement. Also, i bought the pictured ide atapi dvd cdrom slim laptop adapter from ebay and it does not fit into the crx880a. What drive and/or adapter will install in the case and convert into an ide cable a motherboard will accept?

Suggestions On Wireless Or Wired Keyboard / Mouse

I'm still deciding whether or not i would want a wireless setup. I've had a love/hate relationship with them. Anyway, should i go for the clutter with wired keyboard/mouse? What would you suggest?
Or should i go for the wireless components? If i do, i'd like some sort of recharger for them. What would you suggest?

Ssd And Standard Drives

So i'll be building a new computer in the next week or so and i have most of the parts ordered. I have been using a western digital caviar green wd10eads 1tb 32mb as an external drive hooked up to my laptop and my plan was to use it as my boot drive in the new build. However seeing as the rest of my system is reasonably high end (at least by my standards some of you guys are nuts) i thought it may be slightly on the slow side to run windows. I don't have a ton more money to spend as the rest of the parts have cleaned me out so my options are:

A) pick up another wd10eads 1tb and run them in raid 0
Or
B) buy a ssd such as the ocz vertex series 30gb

I've never owned a ssd so please forgive my noobness. I did search around but was unable to find the answers to a few specific questions i have regarding my situation. 30gigs wont cover my needs for os, programs, and games but it's all i can afford in a ssd right now. Between windows 7 and a 10 gig world of warcraft install i don't think i'd even have room left over for the cs4 suite let alone the laundry list of other games i want to install. So would i be better off with my os on the ssd and programs, games, and media on the wd 1tb or everything on 2 of the wb 1tb in raid 0?

Heres my setup so far:

I7 920 /w corsair h20
Evga x58 sli le
Xfx 5870
G. Skill 6gb ddr3 triple channel

Connect Ps3 Slim To Pc Monitor

How to connect a ps3 slim to a pc monitor with sound? How do i do this? I want to do this because i want to avoid using my old 20in sdtv and since i don't have the money for a hdtv for my basement, i figure i could just use a computer monitor i already own. It has vga and dvi with hdcp, however- what i can't figure out is how to get the sound from the ps3's hdmi cable to a pair of pc speakers. What do i have to buy to get my ps3 to display on a pc monitor, in hd quality, and get the sound to come through the pc speakers (unless there is a better way). (They are regular stereo speakers with a 3. 5mm input, i know that's poor quality but sound isn't what i'm concerned with).

Slim Optical Drive Adapter Screws

I have a panasonic uj-120 slim atapi drive with this atapi->sata adapter. The slim drive takes tiny screws on the back to hold the adapter on, but i have no idea what size i need. It's either m2 or m2. 5, i'm guessing 6mm long. Most places online will sell these screws in packs of 25-50, but i only need two. I'll send someone a couple bucks for two of these screws.

Dell Studio Slim Graphics Card Cooling

Am a complete newbie to modding pcs and playing with the insides of them, other than changing a graphics card or adding more memory. But i have come across a problem and the only solution is to start altering the pc. I have a dell studio slim, and when i initially bought it, my idea was to not play computer games and use it only for work purposes. Yeah right! It ran beautifully with only visual studio and sql server running but now that am no longer doing any development at home, the pc has turned into a world of warcraft machine, and am slightly addicted. Now i bought a new graphics card xfx geforce 9500gt 1024mb ddr2 low profile/half height pci express 2. 0 video card, and its awesome. I can up all the settings to almost the top in wow, and if i don't play for more than a couple of hours at a time, everything is fine. However i started to see the screen flicker on and off, and at first i thought it was my monitor. I switched to an old monitor and things seemed to be fine. So i blamed the monitor. Dell replaced the monitor with no questions, and things settled down again for a while. Until a couple of weeks ago when i put in a weekend of gaming. The screen started flickering again. I went inside the machine and noticed that it was real hot, and the graphics card was noticeably warmer. So it could be the graphics card is not liking the slim case and (now i notice) very little airflow other than the fan on the processor and the fan on the power unit. So am in need of a bit of advice. I want to buy a new case - put all the components of the dell into it, and make sure there are plenty of fans (quiet ones please) and airflow to keep the graphics card cool. This would have the added benefit of maybe buying a higher end graphics card as the slim/half height issue would be removed and be able to add in some funky stuff to make the pc look awesome. Would anyone know what type of motherboard i have in my dell and are there cases out there that will fit it, as i have unfortunately heard its a hard thing to find (or it was as the posts all seem to be really old that i read).

Ps3 Slim Won't Recognize Wd Usb 3.0 External Hard Drive

I've been trying for the last 3 days to connect my western digital mybook usb 3. 0 1tb external drive to my ps3 slim to no avail. I've went through *** and back so i wonder if it is even possible? Is the ps3 capable of backward compatibility with this drive?

I know many people have connected a 2. 0 usb external to a ps3 but i've googled and asked tech friends, game owners, sony ps3, wd, seagate, buffalo, adata. You name it. Yes of course i formatted the whole drive(partition)935gb into fat32 using various software programs; swissknife, acronis, partition wizard. They all show after completion that the drive was formatted to fat32. I even tried making folders; video, pictures, music and still no go. Is there something i'm missing? Is it a chipset issue or a host controller defecit on ps3's end? The funny thing is it will read my fat32 supertalent usb 3. 0 16gb flash drive so i dont know if the flash turns into a 2. 0 usb read that ps3 recognizes but it can't do that with the build of an external drive, maybe bc it's just a wd black or blue cavier sata with a controller laned into 3. 0 usb ports inserted into a tower. If anyone has had success with any of the usb 3. 0 external drives please let me know the amazing fix. I even thought there may be a difference with the usb 2. 0 and 3. 0 cables and iwould have to switch to a 2. 0 to connect to ps3. I'm not leaving any stone unturned. I contacted sony ps3 and they escalated it for the next meeting, so they say. Wd has no clue and will look into it. Seagate tech support told me right away it isn't supported but didn't say why bc i had to convey questions to the girl on the phone. Buffalo didn't know, so i contacted various retailers in canada that sell the drives to see if there was any feedback from customers or tech savvy employees. No one seems to know. Yet this could be a simple fix or it might be impossible with ps3's current setup and may be fixed if/when ps4 is released. I doubt a patch or firmware can fix this but you never know. It would be interesting to see if the ps3 will recognize a ssd in a usb 3. 0 enclosure. I have a ocz agility 2 ssd new and may try this b4 i install it with my original intention as internal for windows 7 64 bit os and media. I also bought an asus u3s6 card that comes with 2 usb 3. 0 ports. I have many people working on this even the main manager at canada computers as he is a ps3 fan and is very interested himself which is good because the more brains that inquire and trouble shoot the better the chance of a solution either soon or in the future. So once again, thanks for anyone that has had success with these drives and i'll be sure to post any information i receive.

Wired Connection Same Ip Issue

I had been using a wired connection on one computer and a wireless on the other to my router for a long time. Then one day the wired one quit working. We got a new modem and it still didn't work(tried many wires as well). So we just connected both of them wireless. The problem is that now i disconnect quite often so my computer isn't good for much more then surfing the web. I tried changing channels, but that didn't work so i was going to try a wired connection to my computer(the one that has never used wired). I plugged it in and it worked for a brief period of time then disconnected me, and i was never able to get it back. I also got a message a few times saying that i have the same ip as the other computer when i was plugged into the wired and tried some of the repair connection functions. How can i either fix the wired connection or stop the wireless from disconnecting?

Adding Wireless To A Wired Network

Can anyone recommend me a cheap device that i can connect my netgear dg834 to in order to share the adsl connection it currently shares to a wired network, to a wireless one. Back story is i'm trying to connect the wii to the internet and have had no success so far trying the following;

So apart from the 30-40 access points, do i have another option?

Connect Hub Wirelessly Or Wired

Is it possible to connect a hub wirelessly or does it need to be wired (ethernet cable)?

Answer:-
If your referring to a hacked hub to connect wireless to another hub, then it all depends on what make/model of the hub you have. The linksys wrt56 is a wifi hub that can be hacked to put a custom firmware called dd-wrt or tomato firmware, with it you can use it as a wireless bridge and attached that wirelessly from point a to point b without a cable. This will allow you to "bridge" between wifi hubs. Some vendor sells a game bridge that does the same function but it's expensive.
