Hi. I was wondering if anyone here could help me with a problem I'm having. I have this old Tandy my brother bought when he was a kid. He gave it to me when he moved out. I just love this old computer. I also love to write, so from then on I used the Tandy and to this day I still use it to type my personal stories and poems. The reason I use this old Tandy instead of my 3 year old Dell is because it's secluded and private. No one uses it except me. I know I was taking a risk keeping things I consider important to me on such an old computer, but it's been so reliable for so long, I never really thought of it having any problems, and it never really did. Until last Friday when it suddenly started having keyboard errors. First the up and page up keys stopped working. I unplugged the keyboard and tried to clean those keys. When I plugged it back in, more keys had stopped working, or they were messed up like the right arrow would go down, stuff like that. I plugged it out once more and again messed around with it, which was stupid since I only made things even worse. They whole keyboard stopped working, and the computer would beep when I booted it. It only does that if a key is stuck, or I hold a key down for too long. I called our local computer repair, and the guy said he thought it was the system, that something had shortened out in the computer. The weekend passed, and this morning I went back to the repair shop where I brought the keyboard in, hoping they could clean it. Another guy there said he thought it was the keyboard, and borrowed me one they had to test it. He said it had the same connector in the back, so it should work. It didn't. Even though it fit into the keyboard connector, the computer didn't work with it at all. Could this be because of the system having something wrong with it, or that Tandy is only compatible with a Tandy keyboard? The one I have is a Tandy Enhanced keyboard, and they're impossible to find these days, as for most vintage computer parts. If they can't fix this keyboard, and/or if it's the system, there's really nothing I can do. This is a major thing for me because I have so much on that computer that I don't want to lose. The people at the repair shop think I'm crazy for putting in so much effort for this ancient machine, but it's extremely important to me. I don't know what to do anymore, and I really hope someone here could give me some suggestions other than junking it.
