You can buy a kayboard from just about anywhere that sells any computer supplies.  Practically any keyboard you pick up will be 'qwerty', but there really is no 'Microsoft' sort of keyboard unless you want to waste your money on an actual Microsoft keyboard.  And if you're thinking about going for one of those 'natural' keyboards, don't.  The are really wierd to use, and absolutly useless for most gaming. :)

Introversion is a bit busy at the moment, but your stuff will eventually turn up.
I swear Officer, I didn't know she was 4!
My Profile, my mates site, Bloody Mongrel.  Great stuff.

Also in the mean time, if you key is still playing up, and you have an OS greater than 98se, go to start> run and type in OSK.exe

What pops up is a On Screen Keyboard, allowing you to manualy insert the missing letter when needed.

Hope that helps.

The only problem is, his O key isn't working :biggrin:

However, it *might* be on the start menu, try Accessories -> Accessibility.  :)

if you go into word and type post wich will come out like pst it might auto correct it to post then you can delet the pst and copy paste the o where ever you need it. its a little arsed way of doing it but it would work.
or you could copy any one of these o's.

o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o Oo O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O o O

come on take your pic anyone of them or take 2 there free and you seem to be all out of them at the moment. ok im sry, but this happened to me a while ago but it was more like 6 of my keys stopped working so until i bought a new keyboard i was constantly borrowing letters from this site and other posts to type correctly. and did you try removing the key and cleaning the contact. there might just be dirt under the key thats messing it up.

ALT+ASCII

SO O is ALT+79 for O and ALT+111 for o.  A pain in the arse, but useful when you are learning to code C in an insititution where every other keyboard is in US layout. Although Ive forgotten all the weird symbol codes now.

(And to forestall the 'it dont work' post, you have to use the numeric keypad, you hold ALT down while your type all three numbers, and its not 100% garaunteed to work for all high-ASCII characters, although everything you need is in low-ASCII.

You are an idiot, and you are also, coincidentally, full of shit.
