Keyboard is working improperly

\015 I was give a used nexxtech keyboard. When I try to typr one letter either a few letters come up or a symbol. Should it have a software disk with it? Or was it just more used than I was le to believe?\015

Answers :

I had a keyboard that would only print a 5 in a box everytime I pressed the u button. Most of the other keys were putting strange combinations up too.
I found out I had the numlock key at the top (near the top row) and pressed it. Viole' I can read what I am typing (and you can too). Maybe this is your problem?
