What rubbish! From WikiPedia: The QWERTZ or QWERTZU keyboard is a widely used computer and typewriter keyboard layout that is mostly used in Central Europe. The name comes from the first six letters at the top left of the keyboard: Q, W, E, R, T, and Z. UK Keyboards are QWERTY always. the only difference is where the £ and # keys are and maybe a ...

This is not true. QWERTY is the International standard. To Quote: The QWERTZ layout is fairly widely used in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and much of Central Europe. The main difference between it and QWERTY is that Y and Z are swapped, and some special characters such as brackets are replaced by the diacritical characters Ä, Ö, Ü and ß. ...

Are you sure the dongle is actually a Bluetooth dongle? Logitech is pretty big on their Unifying receivers, which are used to connect up to six Logitech devices using similar (but incompatible) technology to Bluetooth. The unifying receivers tend to be marked with a 'red star' type logo, though my one has the text '1000Hz' printed on it instead because it ...

(I'm no expert. Anyone, feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.) It is possible in general, although a Bluetooth dongle may support only a subset of Bluetooth profiles. I think keyboards operate on HID profile, while speakers require A2DP. So you may or may not be able to use speakers with your specific dongle, depending on what profiles it supports. You ...

On Windows, someone implemented a kernel-mode driver to do this magical feat for the wireless Apple keyboard. I am not sure if it works for a macbook. The FAQ says that an option is to install Windows "natively." Regardless, there is a good chance a small modification to the source code could get it working everywhere. ...

There's a excellent free app that does exactly that. It's called KeyboardCleanTool, and it's made by the same guy who made BetterSnapTool. Unlike with Keyboard Cleaner, you can still use your computer as normal while your keyboard is disabled.

It is not just wireless keyboards that are insecure. Take a look at these people. They managed to intercept keystrokes from a standard wired (and wireless) keyboards from 60 feet away. With a normal keyboard and an interested attacker you are not gonna be safe. They also have a whitepaper found here or here

The CODE Mechanical Keyboard uses Cherry MX Clear keyswitches and has a series of DIP switches which control (among many other things) whether the keyboard layout is QWERTY, Dvorak, or Colemak. I haven't used one myself but I have read some positive reviews about them, and have heard that they are fairly quiet for mechanical keyboards.

It is caused by update to Chrome 41 and above. Temporary solution is to copy older pdf.dll library from Chrome <= 40. Its mentioned here.

You are probably using a Lenovo keyboard, which reports the Fn as XF86WakeUp. Normally Fn does not register an xev event at all because it is handled by the BIOS, therefore you cannot remap it. The fact that it is reported as XF86WakeUp gives a lot of confusion, as you can see in this bug report, but it is not really a bug, to quote comment 27 of that bug ...

Simple googling reveals lots of similar posts about Lenovo laptop keyboard issues. I have witnessed such issues firsthand. Basically, you can try to reseat the keyboard cable, which may have persistent/temporary effect or no effect at all. If your laptop is under warranty, try to have the keyboard replaced.

You can change the alphanumeric keys, if they come off easily without breaking them ofcourse. You might need different key caps for the special keys to fit the qwertz layout. Don't forget to change the input method in your OS.

Driver download page for your Ultrabook Just select the "ATK" driver from the list on the page above ^, install that driver. Just in case you don't know how to do that: Unzip the file into it's own folder (right-click the zip file called 'ATKPackage_Win81_64_VER100031.zip', select 'Extract All'), then run the installer, then reboot.

The reason appears to be for older motherboard support. I contacted Das Keyboard, and this was the response they gave: Thanks for taking the time to contact us. The reason for NKRO toggling is because some older motherboards don't "understand" or "get" NKRO over USB. It's a bit more complicated than that, but that's the simplest way to put ...

You have an International keyboard layout set for your keyboard (probably United States-International keyboard layout - but there are others). With this keyboard layout the ` keystroke becomes a modifier to enabling entering of special characters. To get a single ` character you will need to type `+Space. Alternatively change the keyboard layout to the ...

In gvim, as you say you're using, if you :set winaltkeys=yes then alt key combinations are not mappable. If a menu with a given shortcut key exists it will activate the menu instead. Otherwise it will do nothing. You may need "m" in your guioptions option for this to work.

As you troubleshoot this problem, there are two things to consider as "filters" between your keyboard and your Windows instance. Those are OS X and Parallels. That is to say, if a keystroke isn't getting through to windows, it is being "caught" by one of those layers, and you need to figure out which layer is the problem. The first thing to check is your ...

I use a tiny generic BlueTooth MiniKeyboard, and had this exact same symptom. No version of the "toggle NumLock, stupid!" solution worked for me. In desperation, I found online an old USRobotics manual for this keyboard and learned that Fn + <-Enter-> toggles FN-lock on and off. Your mileage may vary, of course; and I have no idea if other keyboards ...

As far as I know this functionality is not implemented in Chrome browser yet. This navigation may work in Adobe Reader and I'm not sure if it works the same way in Google Drive but not in Chrome's native PDF viewer. It may be handy for you to use Page Up and Page Down keys.

If it's sometimes happening before boot, and with two different operating systems, it's very likely a hardware problem.

If it only happens on a certain port, or group of ports, ...
