Hi WoodEd, thoughts:-

Was there a driver with the keyboard?
If so, does it cover your os (which you have not advised)?

Note: usb drivers should be installed, before the device is connected.

What is the numerical sequence output, when you type:-
A thru Z
a thru z

Please expand:- 'it works fine with notepad'
is there a certain application or applications it does *NOT* work with, and others it does?

Have you checked *ALL* the settings in your control panel/keyboard for any obvious funnies?

Najitech's suggestions are good, it is definately worth trying a ps2 k/b.

As a matter of interrest, where are you based? I am in Hammersmith, West London.

Good Luck - Keep us posted.

Hi WoodEd, thankyou for the comprehensive description of your problem.

Is it on a Desktop, Laptop or what?

Am unable to proceed further, as my Crystal Ball is not working today.

You may be able to edit your original post, if required.

Good Luck - Keep us posted.

can't be sure, but it could be a virus issue. See the following link:

Also, just out of curiosity, have you tried a PS2 keyboard instead of USB?
