    When typing and using the number pad,whenever I type the
    number 4, I always get a 4/.(Backslash)
    When using the numbers at the top of the keyboard,I just
    get the number 4 without the backslash.
    The board is five years old.What can I do ? Pray? Buy a new
    one.
    Any thoughts would be appreciated.
    Sincerely:
    Dog Lover

    It does sound like the keyboard is going bad. They are not expensive and easy to replace. That is what I would do.
