Hi

Got a wireless keyboard on another PC that is typing incorrect text when keys are hit.

Have uninstalled and reinstalled drivers checked language setting are correct, reinstall drivers and reboot works for around 5mins then starts typing crap again.

WinXP (though its not a windows problem cause the same thing happens in DOS ) very confusing microsoft wireless keyboard..

Any help would be much appreciated

When you say "typing incorrect text" do you mean like, you hit the "A" key and it types "L" or somthing to that affect?

You might want to run an antivirus such as Norton Antivirus and Adware scanning program such as AdAware or Spybot S&D to see if you have a maliscious program on your computer.

Also, does this happen with a regular keyboard attached to the PS/2 port on the motherboard?

Yeah when I type the keyboard throws out different characters generally not letters could be any signs @:L$"£ stuff like that.

No hot keys installed

Have run antivirus and spyware scanners adaware, microsoft etc

Have noticed that when I disable type32 service (controls secondary keys across the top of the keyboard ie. browser launch etc ) seems to stop but want to have those on. Am currently looking for a newer version of type32.

Oh and works fine with a normal keyboard attached.

Cheers Liam

This may sound like a stupid question, but do you have any other wireless devises, such as a wireless mouse, or worse yet, another wireless keyboard that could be interfearing with the signals being sent to the computer?

Hi

The only other wireless device is the mouse but it's a combo pack from microsoft so both came together in the same box. Have reinstalled the mouse driver as well and put new battries in the unit.
