WTF??
    #1172748 - 12/26/02 10:55 PM (13 years, 11 months ago)

can't type certain capital letters such as the i at the beginning of this sentence. This started a moment ago while trying to post. I am puzzled. I reinstalled the driver for my keyboard w/o any success. t is rather strange because the i in the previous two sentences worked. i must sound a bit strange but i swear it is tripping me out. When i try to type certain shift + letters as capitals generally require i get a beep from my tower. i restarted my computer w/o any success at fixing the problem.

The letters/characters that don't work are: shift + qryiofhk;]=9012

Anyway I am puzzled. Has this happened to anyone else or does it ring a bell?

Now I have noticed that if I hit the shift key and the intended letter super fast I can get the capital letters to appear. It's really messing with my flow though.

I am always tripping. Once you are/see god you can't go back. :wink:

I fixed the problem with the keyboard. I had to go through the re-initialisation of the wireless keyboard/mouse about twenty different times before it would work properly.

Does it do the same in other programs such as wordpad? Does it do it after a reboot? You could have bad hardware, either keyboard or logic board if it persists in all programs and after reboot. Make a dos boot disk and boot to dos and see if it does the same there to help rule out software...

it could be something in your keyboard itself (hardware rather than software problem)

You might consider changing the batteries in your wireless peripherals. That usually causes a weakened transmission signal.
