If_you_could_type_spaces_with_the_old_keyboard_but_not_the_new,_return_the_busted_new_keyboard. Or could you not input spaces with EITHER keyboard?

Go to device manager and uninstall and reinstall keyboard device?

Calling all smart-asses ! :kaola: 


Next time you feel the need to leave a space, press the "Alt" key and hold it. Now enter 032 in the number pad and release the Alt key... Got space ? :sarcastic: 

No???? :heink: 

try entering 255 instead of 032. [:tigsounds]

The keyboard character code. That works as well but I think that is even more inconvenient to type than using _

I couldn't resist. It's the old saying that goes something like "Desperate Times Call For Desperate Measures."


Me thinks his file kbdclass.sys is bad.

Level up for me on xp knowledge. I never ran into a keyboard problem before, so haven't looked for a fix. Thanks tigsounds.

Woa .... "me thinks" is far from "This IS the problem" !!!

Well, at least it is further than what I got.

Put your XP disk in the CD ROM drive. After it auto-runs, cancel whatever it offers to do (close).

Now...

Start>Run>SFC /scannow

The keyboard drivers are one of the things it will be scanning, and repairing if it finds a fault.
