hi

I purchased an Asus laptop about a year ago and recently hooked up an old USB wireless keyboard/ mouse combo. Logitech Cordless MX Duo. Drivers were already provided by Vista x64. and the keyboard works fine. now to the problem. My integrated 87 key laptop keyboard no longer has the correct key mapping. ( uio=456, jkl=123) so the mapping for the 106 key(or whatever it is) is now overlaid to the 87 key keyboard, even when the USB keyboard is not connected. The mapping was ok on the login screen and on another user account that the USB keyboard was never used on. so it's not a hardware failure. it has to have something to do with the keyboard.inf or some other driver that switches between the two.

any help would be appreciated, i've spent too much time on technet already and gotten no where. :confused:

Thanks

P.S. Vista now has all updates applied.

anyone know where the registry key is that points to the keyboard map? or where those types of settings are stored?

So, when you press the numlock on the laptop keyboard, the 'U' no longer produces a '4' ?

What does it produce when the numlock is lit up?

LMAO! i've been looking at this problem for more than a week and never thought to check Num lock status. There is no problem. I just didn't know there was a Number pad function. I didn't know why the letters were typing numbers. This is my first laptop and i've never had a reason to use number lock until i had a full size keyboard with number pad on it.Without Numlock on, the keys type fine. i've been working with computers for years and it didn't take much to knock me down a peg... i must be an expert noob....

Thanks alot. :eek:
