I’ve never had a keyboard fail on me but this week two have; or have they?
Sometimes Caps key seems to lock up so I can’t get out of caps; fortunately my editor fixes most Caps and hyphen problems but for long periods of time, when I want this ‘ I get “, or this > when I want this . It’s working now but at some point, for not apparent reason, I will hit this . and get > and not be able to switch back to this . or this ? instead of this /
There are times when I can’t selection a single word; I get more than one, or an entire line or the whole paragraph. If I'm trying to select file I get the same results; blocks of two or three or "all". I just can't seem release the others.
There are times when the Del key completely fails to delete.
Then; whichever one of these things is happening it mysteriously stops /-:
Could this only be a keyboard thing or something else? My old keyboard failed completely; nothing happened when I pressed keys; but all the lights were on. The one I replaced it with came with my comuter and i" (I CAN"T get the hyphan now) """""""""""""""" nothing shifts the key> see>>> no period! SHIFT IS ACTING UP NOW and I don't think it's sticky keys.
DDDddddDDDDddd sometimes when the shift light in on I get lower case.
