Not sure if this i\s software or hardware. When I hi\t the i key, slashes are typed also. Whats weirder is every time I backspace one of the slashes my SCROLL LOCK TOGGLES on each backspace h\it, also I cannot hold that backspace key to delete multiple characters, I have to hit it each time. Now whats worse i\s that my arrow keys and quote keys arent working at all. My keyboard isnt that old, havent spilt anythi\ng on it. |Its a verbatim backlit keyboard with built in speakers.


i\i\i\i\i\i\\i\ii\i\i\i\i\i\i\i\
I|I||II|I||II|I|I|I|I|I|
wei\rder it happens on ei\ther s\ide randomly!

Please help

Hi liserspearl,

Have you checked so that the keyboard layout hasn't changed to something else?
Go to the Control Panel > Regional and language options > Keyboards and Languages > Change.

Can you try this keyboard on another PC or laptop to see if it acts the same way?

Mini torx screwdrivers: If you have a Harbor Freight tool store near you, they have some cheap screwdriver sets with the changeable mini torx bits. I forget the size..only time I've seen them is on Macbooks.

if it doesn't work on another computer and he opens it up the warranty might be voided.
I agree Oscer. It's worth trying to get it replaced under warranty first.

I added the torx bit info only because I've had a hard time finding them too.
