    Default Keyboard issues

    I AM HAVING ISSUES WITH MY KEYBOARD, THE BATTERY LEVEL WAS LOW SO I CHANGED THE BATTERIES NOW AS YOU CAN SEE I CAN ONLY USE CAPS OR SMALL FONT BUT WHEN I TRY TO USE THE 'CAPS' THE SYMBOLS WILL NOT FUNCTION ON NUMBERS EXAMPLE WHEN I PRESS THE DOLLAR SIGN ON THE NUMBER 4 IT WILL ONLY GIVE ME THE NUMBER 4 NO MATTER IF THE CAPS ARE ON OR OFF..ANY IDEAS..sorry can't use the question mark because it won't work either

    Hey there dentalgal, good to see you again, even if it is under these circumstances!

    Refresh my memory please, is it windows XP or vista you have?

    if windows xp, look down by the clock, you should see, to the left of the icons, a small box with the letters "EN".

    (i know, your toolbar looks different to mine )

    Can you confirm this is the case? and if not, what do you have there? (if anything)

    First thing to check- are you sure the batteries you put in are OK? Charlie

    See Link for help,

    Or Move the keyboard to another machine and see if it works there if you have that option.

    i didn't mention that my keyboard is wireless, not sure if that helps in solving the problem or not, again the batteries are new and all the other keys are functioning properly except the shift button which controls the top row where the numbers and symbols are.. my other pc is very old so not sure if it would work on it..we do have a wired keyboard, perhaps we should try to attach it and see if it works

    Try getting driver here, for windows xp32bit that's the operating system you select in case you were not sure.

    You could also insert the disk that came with it. if one did.
