    why won't my shift key work, it just beeps at me when i try to use it.

    i can put my cap locks on and get upper case letters, but none of the symbols on the top row of numbers, or puncuation marks.

    i'm really missing my exclamaion mark and question mark

    any ideas what's wrong/

    First shut down. I suggest unplugging it for at least 30 seconds after you shut it off. While it is shut down unplug the keyboard and plug it back in. Computers are not completely off as long as they are plugged in. If it still does not work you probably need a new keyboard. That isn't such a big deal because you can get new keyboards for less than $20 these days. Maybe as low as $10. Even a used keyboard off of an old computer will do. If you need more help let me know.

    Thanks for the suggestions, they didn't work, however, i did find an old (ancient) keyboard down in the basement.

    It seems to work, has alot of extra buttons on it, and it's reaction time is slower.
    But,, hey, i've got my !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!back!!Yahah!

    It will do for now.

    Thanks for helping out!!!!!!!!
