Keyboard Keys Swapped

I purchased a new siemens fujitsu computer preloaded with winxp pro on. However a problem i'm having is that my @ and " are swapped around. But if you release the shift key
2 and ' are correct. Is there any setting or something i can do to correct this problem? I have tried another keyboard and it's still the same.

Activboard Keyboard - Keys Type Wrong Letters / Characters

I purchased a 1-media 4806 (packardbell) with a packard bell activboard keyboard. I have re-installed my os many times with no problems in the past, however i recenatly installed a new hd, installed win me and then upgraded that to win xp pro, the keyboard config now seems to have changed my settings. Whenever i try to get the @ sign i end up with " sign, essentially having to press shift and 2 to get my @ sign, also there are other keys not in place, my # key is under shift and 3, but they are in the correct place on the keyboard, any ideas on how to correct this? Its a pain in the arse when you work from home and have to keep editing documents!

Dell Inspiron Laptop Keyboard Letters Don't Work

Dell inspiron laptop keyboard letters don't work after cleaning, how can i fix this? I removed the keyboard to clean the keys. The space bar and a couple letter keys came apart but i figured out how to put them together again and hooked onto the keyboard again. These keys though, don't work at all, and they also sound different from, their quieter. I'm not sure if this would make any difference but i cleaned the keyboard with clorox wipes. Also before replacing a couple keys, i needed to stick the end of a screwdriver underneath the keyboard membrane in order to position the round rubber thing. I'm just unsure if it was something that i did and should not have or if it's simply needing to re- replace the keys.

For some odd reason my keyboard is not working correctly. Whenever i try to get a capital(hold shift) it does something else. When i push l key its logs out. And more of this stuff, its almost as if i had a multi-functional keyboard from logitech which has these options. But its a keyboard without these features. Does anybody know if there is something in xp which can do this?

Keyboard Keys Are Not Functioning Properly

On the google website or any other site, where one has to type a query, when i type a word with the letter a, i.e. When i press the key 'a', it behaves like the backpage key. When i highlight a sentence, and press left control key and c to copy the highlighted text, just pressing the left control key, the sentence gets replaced by a open aphostrope. Is my keyboard hijacked by spyware?

Paint Over G15 Keyboard Keys

My keys for the g15 keyboard are starting to wear. Several of the keys have started to wear the black covering off. Though this doesnt affect functionality, it looks really bad. Is it possible to paint over it with a more durable paint, and if so, what are the fonts used on the keyboard so i can make masks. On a side note, i've been toying with the idea of changing the lighting in my keyboard, from all blue, to sections being different colors, like the qwerty and standard buttons being blue, the f keys being red, number pad being something else etc. Is that possible/how much power can i draw from the usb?

And another note, has anyone ever been able to change the lcd screen in the keyboard. I like the current one, but the response rate is complete crap and blurrs too much when i run custom profiles. And id like to have a finer res screen.

Keyboard Keys Does Not Response Correctly

This is strange, i've used this keyboard for years until recently, it acts so weird, the 'a' key and the '1' key and tab as well does not responce correctly. i.e. I have to pressed it several times in order to get a character after that it works fine, but later it happens again, really annoys me. I have just format my disk and installed windows 2000, that was not the cause right?

Keyboard Malfunctioning, Some Keys Stuck

My keyboard on my tower seems to some stuck keys on it (namely z x y c v), and i really need it to work. I never needed any drivers or anything, and it's a generic ps/2 keyboard i got for 10 bucks. Whacking it against the desk worked last time this happened, but so far no beans. My other option is to use my original apple imac keyboard. I tried plugging it in, and it works for about 10 seconds, cuts out, and comes back again, and this keeps on repeating. What are my options? I really need to get this working again, so i can use my pc.

Setup Keys On Extra Keyboard

This may be a challenging problem, but i am trying to set up a second keyboard (usb) that does functions as if the entire thing was a new set of function keys (f-keys). They must still stick to normal keyboard interrupts though, so using a com port or a game port would not work for me here. I was wondering if there's a good way to add on a control+alt to whatever i press, only on the second keyboard. For example, if i hit the 5 key on the second keyboard, i would like my computer to receive control+alt+5. A hardware solution here would be just as good as a software solution, but it must work for a usb keyboard.

Keyboard Keys Press At Same Time Limitations

I've played games on cheap keyboards where i can only press so many keys at the same time, etc: go forward, duck, walk, strafe, jump etc. On a cheap keyboard i can only walk forward & strafe & duck, so if i try to jump, i can't because i'm pressing too many keys at the same time. Is there a program that will light up the buttons (like winxp joystick calibration) so i can see how many buttons i can hit at the same time? Or what keyboards will allow me to press more buttons?

Keyboard Keys Are Sticky And Hard To Press Down

Well green tea to be exact. And now the e and s keys are sticky and hard to press down. Literally just a few drops. I immediately turned the keyboard upside down and started banging on it to get it out, but i guess it just wasn't good enough. It's a saitek eclipse ii. Should i attempt to take it apart? Or do the keys pop off somehow, and if so, what tools would i need to pull them without damaging anything? Or am i just completely screwed?
