    My lower right 'DELETE' key types a .(full stop).

    The upper full stop does nothing!!

    All other keys are working correctly.

    Help would be appreciated as I tend to use this 'delete' key rather than the other (below the 'insert key).

    The key functions as a Del key when NumLock is turned off, and as you described when it is on.

    What "upper" full stop? You mean the asterisk? (I realize that keyboards do vary, but I have none there.)

    Thanks a lot. I forgot all about the 'num lock'.

    Deletes OK now.
