    Outlook Hangs Keyboard

    I've got a weird one here. We have one particularly finicky PC running Office 2000 (with Outlook 2000 in Internet Only Mode). Every time we start Outlook, it causes the keyboard to become inoperative in all applications. Anyone ever heard of that???

    No ideas on the outlook problem and you should already have a cookie but here's a ham - <img src=/S/oink.gif border=0 alt=oink width=15 height=15> - will that do ?

    A ham will have to do. Maybe if I forward it to Microsoft as a gift, my Outlook problem will disappear???

    That PC is running on Windows 98, with very little else on it, other than Office 2000

    Re: Outlook Hangs Keyboard

    here's a few items which may be of interest.. possibly:

    <A target="_blank" HREF=http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/q248/0/22.asp>Outlook Stops Responding </A>
    <A target="_blank" HREF=http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/q257/7/47.asp>Hewlett-Packard Brio Keyboard Locks </A>

    If niether of these apply, try this:

    Start, Settings, Control Panel, Keyboard.
    Try to locate the particular keyboard you're using, otherwise, set the keyboard to 102-key standard.

    Hope this helps!

    You are a God-send! I can't believe that I didn't think of to look for that before. The HP Brio is such a bare-bones PC, I automatically assumed that it couldn't be a hardware problem. I've been a WOW subscriber for many years now, and a Woody fan going all the way back to his first Word Basic books. With hindsight, it's obvious that I should have looked to a WOW forum first! Thanks Again.

    Chris

    P.S. I'll tell Eileen that you can have my 5,000th Wowser gift ham. [img]/forums/images/smilies/wink.gif[/img]
