Please post a copy of your xorg.conf file and let us know what type of keyboard your using... Is it a standard US layout, or different?

my keyboard its a compaq easyacces in spanish
this is the section of the kb

Section "InputDevice"

Identifier "Keyboard1"
Driver "kbd"

# For most OSs the protocol can be omitted (it defaults to "Standard").
# When using XQUEUE (only for SVR3 and SVR4, but not Solaris),
# uncomment the following line.

# Option "Protocol" "Xqueue"

Option "AutoRepeat" "500 30"

# Specify which keyboard LEDs can be user-controlled (eg, with xset(1))
# Option "Xleds" "1 2 3"

# Option "LeftAlt" "Meta"
# Option "RightAlt" "ModeShift"

# To customise the XKB settings to suit your keyboard, modify the
# lines below (which are the defaults). For example, for a non-U.S.
# keyboard, you will probably want to use:
# Option "XkbModel" "pc105"
# If you have a US Microsoft Natural keyboard, you can use:
# Option "XkbModel" "microsoft"
#
# Then to change the language, change the Layout setting.
# For example, a german layout can be obtained with:
# Option "XkbLayout" "de"
# or:
# Option "XkbLayout" "de"
# Option "XkbVariant" "nodeadkeys"
#
# If you'd like to switch the positions of your capslock and
# control keys, use:
# Option "XkbOptions" "ctrl:swapcaps"

# These are the default XKB settings for Xorg
# Option "XkbRules" "xorg"
# Option "XkbModel" "pc105"
# Option "XkbLayout" "us"
# Option "XkbVariant" ""
# Option "XkbOptions" ""

# Option "XkbDisable"

Option "XkbRules" "xorg"
Option "XkbModel" "compaqeak8"
Option "XkbLayout" "es"

You may want to look into this program: LinEAK. It's designed to handle the keys on the keyboard, esp yours. If this isn't what your looking for let me know, and we'll go from here.
http://sourceforge.net/projects/lineak

Here is a nice page I found in spanish for installing it: http://www.linuxchile.cl/docs.php?op...on&doc=35&id=1

The actual version number may be outdated (didn't check) but the process should still be the same.

Here is a review also from the HCL: http://www.linuxquestions.org/hcl/sh...hp/product/189

just a quick thought: check the wire connection (ps/2 or usb) and also make sure your "numLock" key is on.

should've thought of that sooner, but figured you already checked.
