Microsoft Wireless Keyboard 6000v2 - Keys keep typing number

by nykommer / March 26, 2011 3:49 PM PDT

I have used this wireless keyboard for about a year with no problems. I use it with Windows XP and with Windows 7 on the same computer.

Two weeks ago, after installing IE 9 on the Win 7 HDD on my computer, the keyboard instead of writing the letters I want, now writes only numbers ie. 1234567890 and then starts over again.

I can type correct in the Login Screen and also if using Bing Search Engine, but if using Google or other search engines, the keyboard only type numbers. I can sign in to Microsoft Answers, but I am unable to type this question, again only numbers.

I am typing this on the said keyboard on the same computer, but in Win XP, where it work perfect.

I am not saying it is because of IE 9, as I also installed the IE 9 on my Vista laptop with no problems, it just happened after the installment.

I have tried to reinstall the driver for the keybord, but that did not help.

I would appreciate a step by step instruction, if anyone can help me.

Thank you very much.

Thanks Kees.
I deleted and reinstalled the English/US language keyboard, rebooted, but no change. Still working fine in Bing, but only numbers on all other websites
