I am the author of a high-altitude cookbook. I self-publish. My "A" key decided to stop working on my dell XP, and then the internet would not connect. When I finally purchased a new computer Windows 8, I discovered I could not format it for my hp business injet 2300. This printer is a duplexer, and key to my cookbook business. The other problem was Quark Express 6.1 would not work on it. Two thousand plus seemed a little high for a new Quark. After fiddling around with the internal keyboard and using the "copy and replace function" I decided on a new keyboard. Found a new one on ebay cheap. The instructions here were a blessing. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I now have my XP back working like new. The Windows 8 can be for the internet,

Thank you very much. I am glad it helped and your back up and running. Just a side note: Be careful using Windows XP on the Internet these days, since it no longer receives security updates from Microsoft. Thanks again!
