    Hey guys,

    I am having a weird problem with my Microsoft Wireless Keyboard 6000 v3.0. I bought this as a set with a mouse about 2 years ago. Mouse works fine but recently my keyboard stopped responding out of the blue while I was typing. Now only 1 key works which is currently the letter h.

    When I press 'h' or any key that seems to be working the following is spit out. (i had notepad open)
    p[]\789+

    I took out the batteries and placed fresh ones, that did not help. I took out the batteries and let the keyboard sit for a day. After a day it worked properly for about 20 minutes but then went back to the same problem but this time which a different key.

    I do not eat or drink near this keyboard, so its completely clean in that regard. Any ideas?

    Its only about 2 years old. I have tried it with another pc and had the same issue.

    I just want to make sure that the issue is not fixable. I didn't want to buy another keyboard if I don't have to lol.

    And a correction to my original post. Its 6000 not 600.

    If it is not working on two pc's chances are that it has failed
