The KEYBOARD.SYS file either could not be located or contains

invalid data. Copy a new KEYBOARD.SYS file from the original DOS

start-up disk.

The code page you specified has not been prepared for your

keyboard. Use the MODE command to prepare your CON (keyboard)

device.

Use the MODE command to change to a valid code page, or specify a

valid code page with the KEYB command.

Codepage specified is inconsistent with invoked

invoked code page. Use the MODE command to change the code page

to match your keyboard code page, or the characters you type may

be displayed incorrectly.

being used. You need to install the KEYB function.

Unable to create KEYB table in resident memory

The configuration you requested exceeds the amount of resident

memory originally specified. Restart DOS and reinstall KEYB with

a new configuration.

U.S. English keyboard by pressing Ctrl-Alt-F1. Press Ctrl-Alt-F2

to return to the non-n-U.S. keyboard.

pressing the key. (If you are using a Canadian French keyboard,

press and hold Alt-Shift instead.)
