Wireless 800 keyboard some keys don't type symbol

I just installed 800 wireless keyboard. Some keyboard keys not typing the symbol displayed on the key. For example when I try to type the question mark when you press shift and the button with a question mark for this _. I have a problem with a number of keys.

I installed the drivers will and still experience this problem. All advice given graciously received.


Hi Wairds,

Have you changed the keyboard to another language?

This kind of problem occurs if the keyboard layout is changed to another format like English (United Kingdom) or other non-English of the provision.

Try to define the layout of the English (United States) and check if you face this problem.

  • T8100 keyboard, some keys don't have or cause menus to open

    Because of virus, worm, or something bad, I did a full reformat and load of XPpro. Seemed to work fine, but I found that the letter 'L' has not worked. Drivers loaded from a CD, eBay but still no 'L '. Reform and reload OS and now the letter 'U' does not work. Lucky the installation code didn't have an 'L' or 'U '. The 'u' of inlay opens a menu of accessibility.

    Any ideas.


    In my opinion, you should first try determine what can be the problem and if there is some malfunction of the keyboard. It will be very interesting to know if there is the same problem with the external keyboard.

    If you reinstall the operating system using the recovery CD, avoid any problem, except for a faulty keyboard. Please try with external keyboard if you have a.

    Since writing this j stopped again.

    Any ideas?

    Try an external keyboard and see if that fixes the problem. If so, your keyboard needs to be replaced. If this is not the case, the keyboard on the motherboard controller has gone bad and you need a new motherboard. Also, try to download the update to the BIOS and see if that fixes the problem. Good luck.

  • My HP Probook 450 lapop don't keyboard some keys no workin.


    I bouht juice my new laptop and a few he keyboard do not work. Does not work: t, g, f, b, v.

    I sill have my guarantee.


    Maybe it's a hardware problem, but it is always worth trying the following.

    Shut down the laptop, unplug the AC adapter and then remove the battery.  Press and hold the Power button for 30 seconds.  Reinsert the battery and plug in the AC adapter.

    Robinet tap away at the key esc that you start the computer to launch the Start Menu, and then select f10 to open the bios menu.  Press f5 to load the default values (sometimes it's f9, but the menu below indicates the correct key), use the arrow keys to select 'Yes' and press ENTER.  Press f10 to save the setting and still use the arrow keys to select 'Yes' and press on enter.

    If the above does not correct the problem, and that your laptop is still under warranty, my best advice would be tocontact HP Business Support and arrange for repair


    If you live in the United States, contact HP here.

    If you are in another part of the world, begin here.

  • Pavilion 15-b142dx keyboard some keys not working not

    A friend gave me their 15-b142dx sleekbook Pavilion, apparently AFTER they spill some type of liquid inside. I was able to start the computer, however, there is still a problem with the keyboard.  When the keyboard is installed in the laptop, several of the keys do not work. However, when I go out (and hang with some plastics) it works fine.  I disconnected the ribbon cable and took little alcohol to clean the area. I was also able to run HP diagnostics on the startup, short and long versions and they come back ok.  In addition, I connected an external keyboard and it worked fine. I searched the forum for this type of question and do not see. If someone has had this problem, or I'm looking to replace the keyboard?

    I am currently running windows 8.1. I don't get any error messages, but I noticed that HP does not have a litmus test of keyboard in his diagnoses.

    Hi there @MrKen99

    Welcome to the Forums of HP Support!

    I understand that some of your keys do not work, after that little liquid has decided to make an unwanted visit to the Board of Directors. I'm happy to help you with this.

    In my sordid past that I've seen some really messed up keyboards, due to things like, coffee, cola, water, whatever. My most memorable was someone who gave me a computer that has been used in a kitchen and was close to a deep Fryer, and the keyboard was not only covered with oil and fat, but a generation of fuzzy dust throughout the keyboard upwards. In this case, I have recommended a replacement as the cost to clean it was more expensive than a new one.

    In any case, it sounds as if you have already tried to clean it up, but if you do not jump off the keys to delinquency / inactive, the contacts could be "sticky". Make a note of the keys that are the problem and treat them individually. This document shows how to remove and replace the keys on a standard notebook keyboard.

    Computer keyboard laptop troubleshooting (Windows 8)

    If you don't have any success doing this then I would look at the keyboard, or by using an external keyboard replacement. If you choose a replacement you can check the service manual for it, and it will give a list the items supported.

  • Problem with keyboard: some keys return two, not one, characters

    I have a MacBook Air 11 '' mid-2012 128 GB SSD model running OS X Yosemite 10.10.5 and my keyboard has developed a strange problem occultation key repeat.  Whenever you press the "3" button, the system generates thus simultaneously a '3' and '6 '.  This motif is repeated this diagonal of the keyboard down, i.e.

    '3' generates a '3' and '6 '.

    'e' generates an 'e' and a 'y '.

    "d" generates a "d" and an "h".

    'c' generates a 'c' and a "n".

    The reverse is also true, that is, a '6' generates a '3' and so on.  Curiously, the sign '=' generates a character "§" as well, a special character generated by keeping down option and pressing "6".

    (This combo generates a ' § ' and a ' £', hidden under the '3'.)

    The same problem occurs when you use the Shift or Control keys as modifiers.

    I can work around the problem by using either a connection wireless Bluetooth or wired USB keyboard (like using the "Keyboard Viewer" option under "System Preferences"), but that kind of defeats the point of having a laptop as a MacBook Air, Yes?  The problem is intermittent, but becomes very annoying.  (Try to type a password with such a mess!) It sounds like a mechanical problem requiring a possible replacement of the sale wholesale (and), but I hope someone out there can have a software or another solution.  Thank you!

    That certainly points to make it a hardware problem.  It is difficult to imagine a software problem that would not affect both internal and external keyboards.

  • Aspire V3 - 771g - Tap/left click on delay after pressing the keys on the keyboard (some keys only)

    It is a strange problem that I have, I got the laptop computer now for a month or two, and I'm sure it makes it I got it. The problem is pretty much the title. I can't press the letters or numbers and then left click without a 1 second or so delay, I also can not left click at all if I hold down without letting go of taken, once I do the delay still occurs. I can press the keys of arrows then left click without thin delay (where left-click is delayed / disabled right click still works.) I know that the clicks get detected as the tray icon still points out the tactile/left button when it is used.

    Some information that may be required. The driver is more recent than the one on the download section for this laptop, but I had tried both and still happens. (Also tried uninstalling both and using the default Microsoft drivers but still no luck.) Keyboard supplied with no driver and no listed on downloads. Also, "Rejection of TP" is already disabled.

    Come here for some reason that I can't edit the first post.

    I decided that I was going to send my laptop for repairs that my arrow began to act ladle which meant that I could hardly play a game at all. I thought as a last attempt I would completely reset my computer using restore integrated Windows 8 and it worked. I can now use the keyboard and click at the same time. Although the up arrow is still a little shady, I'm happy. I thought that I would be post that incase someone else had made this experience so that they can try and so know that it worked for someone else, if you've had the experience and it does not work so good luck to find a solution.

    Update - I've narrowed it down, the problem is Windows 8.1 Overview. (Which is in beta so problems are expected). If you are considering upgrading to windows windows 8.1 8 with this model of laptop, I would strongly suggest against it.

  • Laptop keyboard - some keys not working not


    I have an acer aspire 3750z (a few years) works on Windows 7. Unfortunately, some of the keys on the keyboard do not work and - oddly enough - when I connected an external keyboard in the same ones did not either use. The others are fine and I can use the keyboard to the screen when I load it up.

    I've got either no update of windows due and none of acer. No other problem as far as I know and otherwise good performance.

  • some keys don't work (on various sites)

    I noticed on some sites, the buttons that are supposed to do something
    (for example, to play a sound file) do nothing. I thought it was a problem with javascript
    but I'm not really sure.

    I use Firefox on Android (Kitkat) phone. Here is an example where it does not work.

    There is a red button which is supposed to play the audio when selected. Nothing happens.
    Works fine in Firefox on the desktop.

    Thanks for any info.

    Thanks for the screenshot, I don't check far down enough before. Lollipop, touching one of these links shows the icons for different applications, but the Firefox icon only downloads the file and it does not play in the browser. But whatever it is, direct links certainly work vs play via a player on the page.
