Specs: Windows 7, 4MB
I have an old Safeway keyboard that I love because of the simple old form, the small footprint, and 22 extra keys, but is it getting too old (some keys are starting getting stuck) and I guess they will stop working soon. So I would like to replace it with a very similar one.

The problem is that I can't find the manufacturer and from that I can't find where to get a new one. It seems that is for sale. Could someone, please, tell me the manufacturer URL?

Go to your local store and then go to the internet for any web based place that sells keyboard. Unless you find one you like you will have to suffer like me. I have been using the same keyboard for maybe 15 years.

The last place may be to look at auction sites for an exact model. Good luck in your search.

Why did it take me over a year to phone in a problem to ATT?

Thanks jetro for trying to help. from what I see and your answer, it seems that Safeway is no more. I have never spent much time looking for a keyboard because they usually last for many years, and most of them are just that junk they call ergonomic, not to write with but to look at, and occupy a lot of space. Do you know of anyone slim but complete?

Try searching for KME or Ampex.

Keyboards are like buying clothes. No one size fits all. You must try a keyboard out. The tactile feel, depth of travel, shape of keys, extra keys & functions are all things that are personal preference. For example, I have never found a laptop keyboard that I was comfortable with. I have been using a Microsoft Internet pro PS/2 keyboard for years. Don't know what I will do when PS/2 totally disappears.

Stuck keys are usually caused by foreign material getting in between the keys. You can do a number of things to try and cure that. First is to use compressed air to blow out crap. I have even washed this keyboard. I used a spray cleaner lightly and then brushed with a kitchen brush (tooth brush would work too). Then hold sideways under a sprayer faucet. You then need to dry as best you can then leave inverted in a warm place for a day or so.

If you are really ambitious you can disassemble the keyboard. If doing that pay attention to where all go. Disassembling will show you if there is deterioration inside. This keyboard has a rubber membrane with raised areas under each key that act like springs to return the keys. If that is shot then you are out of luck.

Thank you all for the suggestions.

It is just because keyboards are very personal that i wanted to stick to the same brand, same kind, and also because I can't find an interesting one among so much rubbish almost everywhere. Every shop is selling them, but not what I want.
I have already disassembled once. I go by small areas, but they do get old and warn in time, and end up needing replacement.
