I am having a very strange problem. On one of my other computers the keyboard has randomly stopped functioning as it normally should. Now only about 1/3 of the keys are working and all other keys when pressed do nothing (actually some of the buttons produce a beep). If anyone has any ideas toward a solution it would be appreciated.
Hmmm.... Perhaps it broke!!
Just a thought.
1. Reboot the machine - maybe the OS has simply lost the plot
2. Try another keyboard - say one you know is working on another machine.
Both take no more than a couple of minutes to try.
Sorry about that...I thought of every problem possible other than simply the keyboard. Maybe I'll replace it with a wireless one.
Acually it was a long time coming...that keyboard has been in use since '97
So you're already missing all those extra keys M$ has added to the keyboard :D
By my estimation, they can't release a new OS without adding a new key to the keyboard :rolleyes:
I wouldn't go wireless unless you enjoy spending $$. Most wireless keyboards are a joke when it comes to battery life and durability unless you go top of the line (logitech, ms). You can get a decent keyboard for cheap and just get either a usb or ps2 extension cable (depending on the connection the keyboard uses).
