KEYBOARD NOT WORKING

I know some people may help better if I give more 
specific details to my problem.. So here goes:

My keyboard works correctly with any other application, 
such as MSN, ICQ, Wordpad.. etc.  However, when I open an 
Office application such as Word or Excel, it doesn't seem 
to type for me.  I cannot type in the help section, can I 
type in the document or in those toolbars at the top for 
Fonts, etc.  But if I specifically go to "Format >> 
Font", then yes, I can type in it.

I have tried reinstalling Office already, that doesn't 
work.  The hardware is fine, I can still type in any 
other application except for Word or any other 
application.  

If somebody can help me, I would be very grateful.  
Please contact me through e-mail.

Check your settings in Tools/Autocorrect.  It is a common prank to disable 
or sabotage a keyboard using Autocorrect.

I wouldn't guess autocorrect if you're trying to type in Help (in the "ask a
question box" or under Help????)

Have you ruled out your keyboard--can you try it with another keyboard to see if
that helps?  (Not quite the same test as a different application.)

And try opening excel in Safe mode to see if that offers any hints.

Close Excel
windows start button
Run
Excel /safe

And see what happens.

And have you just tried unplugging the keyboard and then plugging it back in?

File Share not working ove VPN SBS 2008
Hi All, I am having a problem with file share access over VPN on SBS 2008. The server has two NIC and one is disabled. It currently has AD role enabled, File Services, Exchange, RRAS (only running VPN). I have configured RRAS with a simple dial in VPN connection, forwarded the ports through the router, and made sure GRE is allowed. I can connect to the VPN just fine, and connect to the file shares of other domain joined computers on the same network as the server, but when I try browse to the server itself it times out (ie using windows explorer browsing to \\server). ...

Rules not working #7
I have a mail profile that I use with one email address that gets a LOT of spam.

Problem is that most of them only work about half the time. I'll get some messages that were moved to the correct folders, and some similar messages still in the inbox. If I click "Rules Wizard" and the "Run Now" button, selecting all the rules, it moves the ones still in the inbox to the correct folder. How come it didn&#...

Which versions of Publisher work with XP?

Speakers not working.
My computer speakers (small ones) stopped working. Tried some new ones... same problem..no sound. Could someone instruct me how to check the drivers or sound card. Thanks. Outlook question? You should check to see if your speakers are muted. Go to Control Panel, Sounds and go thru all the links--volume control will have a mute button. If there's a speaker icon on the lower right, use that to get to the controls. You should ask about this in the forum for your operating system.
