    good day all: this may or may not be a solvable problem. I bought a microsoft wireless natural multimedia keyboard & mouse. It was on sale (first indication) I can't use it as it has assigned different key strokes for the keys. Such as :when I type the letter o it types it as this:eek:] the letter g has an I right beside it
    Very frustrating! Now the big question is... is this solvable, or should I file it in the appropriate box?
    Thanks

    did you get the drivers that go with the device when you bought it? If not, you can most likely download them from the ms site. that would be the first thing I tried.

    Thanks I will try to download the driver for the keyboard and if that doesn't solve the problem I'll just have to get a new one.

    pretty sure that once you get the correct drivers for the ms keyboard and mouse (and there are dozens to choose from, but it's fairly easy to navigate to the right ones) the whole shebang will work fine.
