Q: HELP PLEASE Keyboard Directional Buttons changed

Hello to everyone
I am new to these forums and I have come here for help

I installed some Mods for Oblivion and my directional keys Uparrow and leftarrow have some how ended up with multiple functions
Uparrow is also esc, F12, b,n and Windows key
Left arrow is also F2 and PgDown

Ive tried restoring my system, deleting/reinstalling drivers, modifying the registry and even third party freeware like AutoHotkey and Keytweak but nothing works
I just want to reset them back to being up and left (i use the directional keys,numberpad, right shift and right control for all my first person shooters and have to relearn with WSAD something I dont want to have to do)
I am even considering getting another keyboard but somehow I dont think that will solve the problem. I deleted the System32 entries for my keyboard and it stopped functioning altogether. I unplugged and plugged it in again and it set up the system32 (installed generic drivers there and then ) and the keyboard functions again but my problem remains

Please help me if you can. I dont know what else to try
Kind Regards and thanks in advance
Taz

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: HELP PLEASE Keyboard Directional Buttons changed

You messed everything up by adding in the Mods. Mods are never recommended for anything. You may have corrupted system files. Uninstall the program and all mods. Then check the keyboard. If you have a microsoft keyboard...get intellitype and it might fix the problem. Modding is always bad.

Dont diss the forum. Alot of issues are resolved but we need time to try and find a way to solve them.

Hello there, I'm using a G580 lenovo, windows 7 64bit all of a sudden, hotkeys stopped working at some points, i assumed that it was because I needed to clean up some space and that i was loading the processor too much. Until one day out of nowhere, they stop working totally, no up or left directional keys working, and navigating through the hard disk had never been slower before. Copying or opening a folder became like the worst thing to do ever. I assumed again that it was because of windows or something, formatted and reinstalled windows, and again its still doing the same thing.what do i do ? Im thinking of opening up the laptop manually to check if there was aome sort of short circuit or something because i didnt drop it, nothing got spilled on it or anything.

Hi! I'm running Windows XP Home and at the suggestion of an online friend I tried using TweakUI, version 2.10.0.0, to try to solve a minor log on annoyance.

That annoyance was the log on screen that asked me to click the user button before I could see my desktop each time I turned on my little hand-me-down laptop.

In TweakUI under Logon>Autologon I checked "Logn on automatically at system startup" and left the "User name:" field set to "Owner."

That worked to bypass the annoying logon on screen, but now the "Shut Down" screen has changed from the XP screen with the three red, yellow and green buttons, to the Win2K style Shut Down drop down box.

I don't care for that drop down box because it remembers my last choice, so if I choose "Restart" one time, then the next time try to shut down my computer I end up restarting it.

How can I get that XP three button shut down screen back.

Will in Seattle
a.k.a. "Clueless"

P.S. Is there a way to change my logon name for the Tech Support Forum from "Sleepless in Sea" to "SleeplessInSeatl"?

A:TweakUI changed Shut Down buttons

Undo what you did in Tweak UI. To solve your logon issue go to Start/Run and type control userpasswords2 and press enter. Uncheck User Must Enter User Name and Password to Use This Computer. press Apply, type in your password and press OK restart the computer.

I have a totally new problem with my MS Intellimouse Optical. I have used this for some time (98, ME, XP) with no problems. I now have a new system - Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit. I have downloaded and installed the latest Intellipoint software (7) from Microsoft, and installed the Mouse. But...
- The Mouse is recognised not as an Intellimouse Optical, but an Intellimouse Web
- I cannot therefore change the side button settings on the mouse (via Control Panel>Mouse) from the default "Forward" and "Back", or the centre button either.
This is annoying. I have uninstalled and reinstalled a number of times, to no avail.

Does anyone know...??
(a) How to get Windows 7 to recognise my mouse as the proper type (Device Manager etc)....or
(b) How to hack the settings (XML / Registry / whatever) to change the default option, so the mouse does what I want it to without trying to change the buttons via the Control Panel.

Many thanks

Hi Walrus1963 and welcome to Windows 7 Forums

When you installed the driver, did you correctly select your mouse model from the dropdown list during installation? If not, uninstall the driver and reboot your machine. Now, reinstall the driver being careful to select the correct model when prompted. What is the model of your mouse?

Hi, I have a Lenovo Flex 2 14 which came with a British keyboard but I noticed you can take off the keyboard and swap it out for another one - you can find backlit versions, or a version with a different layout. I got a keyboard for it with Japanese hiragana on it, but the laptop doesn't seem to recognise any of the extra keys this keyboard comes with which have key codes not used by other languages. These keys include: | -? \ ??????the ????, ???? and ???? toggleI would have assumed this was to do with the fact that these are keys from a 106/109 key layout as opposed to the standard 102 key, so I replaced the keyboard driver with Microsoft's 106/109 key keyboard driver, but that hasn't had any effect - it still can't see these keys being pressed. The ??/?? ?? key works because it uses the same key code as the tilde on other keyboards, but that's all. My hypothesis for why this might not be possible to fix is that the ribbon connection between the keyboard and the motherboard could only support 102-key layouts in Europe, and therefore the only way to be able to use these extra input conversion keys without a different motherboard altogether would be to use an external USB keyboard. I may have just made up what I said about the motherboard though, so does anyone know if there's a driver I can use to solve this problem and be able to use the extra keys? I can't just use a key mapper like KeyTweak ...

Hi all you smart guys! Lately, some of the keys on my laptop have stopped working . .off and on. At first it was the "Z" and then the "!" and then the "?". However, the "!" is now working but the "." has begun skipping along with the right hand "shift" key. It seems that when I press it several times in a row it begins to work partially. I tap with the same pressure. I keep my keyboard pretty clean and have worked very hard to blow any debris out from the keys. I really don't want to buy a new keyboard! Could this problem be from a virus or malware? If not is it possible to remove the key and clean under it? Thanks for listening.

My keyboard froze, and I re-installed XP-Home from the disks that came with the Laptop (Acer Aspire 3100+, AMD Sempron, 512 MB RAM). That didn't solve the problem. The PC works in Safe Mode though.At first I thought it was a hardware problem, but then sometimes the application would take one letter every few seconds. Task manager shows that the CPU is running between 55 and 70%. So it looks like some process is in a loop and it's hogging up resources, leaving the keyboard no time to enter its input. The problems seems generalized to any of the buttons around the laptop: power on/off, wireless switch, quick launch keys.From time time, one boot-up is successful, and everything works very well, until the next boot-up. I've noticed that when the boot-up is OK, the icon on the lower right are visible, or there is the arrow < to expand the application bar. When this happens, Task Manager shows under the Performance tab that CPU is running at 2% and the keyboard is working perfectly. The processes tab shows Image Name "System" to use 0%, "taskmgr.exe" a 0-2%, and "System Idle Process" 98%. Instead when boot-up is not OK and the keyboard is frozen (19 times out of 20), only a couple of icon are visible in that toolbar, and the arrow < does not appear. It looks as if boot-up did not complete. Task Manager shows under the Performance tab that CPU is running at 55-70%. The processes tab shows Image Name "System" to use 60%, "... Read more

Hey whats up guys?

Hey when I have Windows Explorer opened up, and I press lets say the ' H ' Key , you would expect it to jump down and highlight a folder with that starts with the letter H right? Mine Jumps to the top right corner & searches my computer for files that start with H, or whatever else I choose to add into there afterward

How can I make it go back to the way it used to be & have it highlight folders.
Thanks in advance!

A:When I press buttons on my keyboard..

Hello Spinsta Welcome to the Seven Forums!

It mainly depends on where you have WE opened to when going to press the H key. If you simply click on your main drive here and press H the highlight immediately goes to HomeGroup. If you click on let's say the first folder on C with an A it may go direct to the hiberfil.sys file at the root which begins with H.

If you clicked in the search box and press H Windows assumes that is the first letter of the item you are running a search on there. If you happen to have Programs Files or Program Files(x86) open and click on anything in one of those directories it will go to the first H item found. WE is acting normally searching for the nearest H item being the explorer tool.

Hi borgqueenx,

It might be possible to physically swap the keys around, although you will need to be careful if you do that. Alternatively, you might be able to overlay stick-on letters to the keys (Letraset) to show the desired letter(s). Another alternative is that you leave the keyboard as it is and just get used to the layout. It is perfectly possible to have Windows 7 in one language, and to have the keyboard set in another.

Hello everyone.

I'm having an issue with a brand new keyboard on my PC. I recently bought Gembird KB-UMGL-01 keyboard and I'm having an issue when holding down a button. For example, whenever I'm playing World of Warcraft if I hold down W to walk forward it acts as if I'm pressing the button repeatedly. It's not specific to just some buttons, I've tried rebinding move forward to random keys and holding them down, same thing happens. I have also tried connecting the keyboard to multiple different USB ports on my PC, and the problem still presists. However, when I tried it on my laptop (also running Windows 10 pro) there was no issue at all.

I have checked manufacturer website, there is no drivers for this specific keyboard. I also tried googling about it, but the only things I managed to find are about specific keys (CTRL, Win, Shift etc.) acting as if they are stuck and the manual also doesn't say anything about this.

I hope that someone here can help me solve this. Thanks in advance.

My keyboard will at seemingly random intervals start pushing my W, A, S, D, Q, & G buttons on its own, as well as clicking my mouse sporadically on its own (Only the buttons which are often pressed while playing first person shooter games).At first this would happen only when playing Counter Strike: Global Offensive via Steam (And it happened often during this time), however it's now happening when I'm surfing the internet, playing other games, and even when I'm just sitting at my desktop. It can be quite frustrating when trying to modify Microsoft Word documents..I've downloaded multiple different anti-malware and 'anti-keylogging' programs since I noticed it happening (after checking their credibility of course), looked at a couple different anti-virus programs (Though ultimately stayed with AVG), and have done long hours worth of scanning and cleaning, only to find myself in the same spot I started.At first I just assumed it was a regular old key-logger of some sort I got from a bad download or something because it would press the buttons in exactly the same manner in which I press them in-game; but I'm not really sure anymore because through all of this time trying to get rid of it, it still only spams my W, A, S, D, Q & G keys as well as my mouse, rather than recording any of my conversations or other key-strokes on the various websites that I visit. Someone also suggested that there was the possibility that someone else was getting to my computer via my net...

- Left SHIFT key still works but when i press it.....it also creates this symbol ~ at the same time within UK keyboard. If i change to US keyboard then it enters the PIPE symbol.
- The ~ key above the tab key actually does this ?
- And the pipe key which is above the Enter key types this: #7

Does anyone have any idea on how i can sort this as its quite frustrating! Thanks for any ideas.

cheers

A:Keyboard Buttons Have Gone Faulty

Hi there asklink, Welcome to Seven Forums.

A quick search around on Google finds that a lot of people are having the same issue or issues with the keyboard.

I was looking on the toshiba forums and they suggest you perform a BIOS update to fix this issue.

If you should experience the above issue on your notebook, please perform a BIOS Update in order to rectify the problem.

Please download and install the latest BIOS Update package for your model from the Toshiba driver download page: TOSHIBA PC BIOS Support Country Selector
