This is a strange problem - my keyboard will not type on certain programs and as far as I can deduce it is only installed programs such as Empire Earth The Sims and Pharaoh I am trying to install Sims and it will not let me put in the letters of the serial numbers only the numbers show Keyboard - will type letters not only I Keyboard will not type - only letters can only conclude that it isn t a problem with the programs because they are from different Keyboard will not type - only letters brands and some are installed some are in the process of being installed Key points -Only the letters do not function or show up numbers are fine Bksp also works -IE notepad Word Publisher etc all work It seems to be the programs that aren t Windows-based created that don t work Things I ve tried -Uninstalling driver for the keyboard Intellitype Pro and rebooting Keyboard worked fine but no solution -New keyboard just plugged it in to my USB port and it s working fine This one is Microsoft Natural USB Keyboard Except for it not typing letters on programs -Tried different USB ports Didn t solve anything I have to say I m at a complete loss as to what the problem is other than some bizarre configuration that Windows has spat at me nbsp

On my Dell Inspiron 1501 laptop I've noticed within the last week or so that whenever I try to type something that some letters don't actually get typed whenever they're pressed. I know the keys aren't sticky or anything. And I've already looked under the Device Manager for the keyboard and it said everything was working fine. I've also already tried to update my driver, but it said it was already updated.

If someone could please help me, I would really appreciate it.

A:Keyboard keys skipping letters when I type

I think we are going to need a bit more info here....are they skipping completely? or are they just delayed? Do any of the keys on your keyboard appear to be stuck lower than the others? Have you spilled anything on your keyboard lately? Make sure it's connected securely to the computer and moving sometimes loosens connections. Also, maybe if you have some canned air, you can blow out around the keys.

Hello, techguys! I have a weird problem. My laptop (HP Pavilion dv6000 running Vista Ultimate) has occasions where I can't type certain letters in a google search box, but when I switch to another tab that's open, it types normally.

This is the strangest error I have EVER seen in XP. I find no mention of this phenomenon anywhere on the web so perhaps I am the first? I surely hope not.

I have a Dell laptop with an integrated keyboard (i.e. built-in). Suddenly, and with no good reason, today my keyboard is acting strangely. Some letters I have to hit 3 times before they type. Others twice. And yet others behave as normal. The correct letter will eventually appear but my Lord no one should have to hit any character on the keyboard more than once.

I need this fixed ASAP because I am taking this PC out of the country with me and I have to be productive.

Help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
 

A:Windows XP - Keyboard - some letters I have to type multiple times for them to appear

Laptop keyboard problem

This could be a failing keyboard matrix, fairly simple to order a new one from Dell and fit. Or it could be the keyboard software faulty. A way to check for a failing keyboard, is to plug in a separate keyboard, into a USB socket. If all works well, then the fault is the Laptop's keyboard. Hope that helps, if only to eliminate one possible problem.

This is a new one.  My mother-in-law was having some problems with her wireless keyboard.  It was pretty old, so I decided to buy a new keyboard.  The keyboard works much better, but there are some weird hicups.  For example, I can type the letters "c" and "v" everywhere except for the Start Menu dialogue box (Search programs and files).  This is quite strange.  I ran a SuperAntiSpyware scan (this is what she had installed) and it only pulled up some tracking cookies, etc.  Nothing suspicious.  This is something new and weird for me.  
 
Any ideas?

Hi everyone,

First post on this great forum! I am using WinXP and all was going fine this afternoon, when I came back this evening and I tried typing something, different letters keep coming up other than the ones i am striking. For example for when I hit 'h' then 'h7' comes up, when i hit 't' then 'tgv' comes up. Also when i try to delete it doesn't delete just moves the cursor back. When I highlight and delete it leaves a '\' in place. I have run my malware and spyware removal tool and antivirus but to no avail.

Anything that can help me would be so greatly appreciated.

I am typing at a normal speed but have to leave a long gap after a case change to make sure it does not do this. Either that or go back and retype the missing letter every time.

It has been happening for the last few days. Sometimes when I type something it will come out as a combination of letters and numbers. I cycle through the letter "c" and get "=, c, +,#, f,t" and so on. This sometimes happens on forms and even why i'm just on notepad. It doesnt happen ALL the time. Just sometimes.
I have something called "KeyScrambler" a firefox addon that sits in my tray. It migh have soemthing to do with it. But I dont know.
HAS ANYONE ELSE HAD THIS BEFORE?

I am using Word 2007 on a Vista Home Premium Machine with an Invidia 7600 video card.
When I view the words I type onscreen, the top of the letters are cut off. Does someone know how to correct this? If not does anyone know how to uninstall Word 2007 without unistalling Office Professional 2007 totally. I would think a reinstall would work but dont want to have to reinstall Outlook and other programs which are part of Office Professional.
Thanks in advance....Bruce

My laptop works fine when I'm typing a Word doc or similar, but for the last few weeks whenever I've been typing on-line (usually hotmail) it misses 10 - 15% of the letters I type. This is very irritating - plus I'm conerned it's got some sort of infection. I've also noticed the cursor sometimes flashes erratically or quicker than normal. Neither AVG(free edition) or Spybot have detected any bug. Would be grateful for any ideas of what the problem could be, and how to sort it! Thanks.

A:I have windows 7 when i type the curser relocates to earlier letters

Hi,

I would suggest booting the system in ?Safe Mode in networking? and check the performance in Safe Mode with Networking.

I would also suggest you to do Flee Power.

In case you have "Desktop", remove any 3rd party peripherals and power cord from your Desktop, press and hold the power button for 20 seconds to discharge any residual current inside the desktop.
In case you have "laptop", remove the battery and charger/ac adapter/power cord from your Dell notebook, press and hold the power button for 20 seconds to discharge any residual current inside the laptop.

You can even try doing BIOS default.

Kindly revert and let us know the status.

Press the Fn button by the Ctrl button on the bottom left of the keyboard and F11. You have accidentally enabled your keyboard number pad funtion.
If it is not F11, then look for the function key (F key) that has a calculator looking symbol on it.

Hi, i recently purchased my Omen from best buy and, although it works fine, im having an issue with the keyboard. The keys all work fine but when im typing a word that contains two of the same letters, sometimes it pauses and doesnt register that second letter (for example the word "letter", the second "t" sometimes doesnt register). its not windows because filter keys is disabled and ive tried testing it with another keyboard. is this something with the way the keyboard is made? just curious it does get annoying sometimes.
 
also the second letter will register if i wait about a spllt second to press it but if i type fast it and tap it a second time it doesnt register. this is with every key not just one.

Hey guys my keyboard has been acting up recently but I'm pretty sure its a software issue. When ever I'm trying to type letters will randomly be dropped or it will refuse to type some letters all together. Like if I was to try typing the letters A through Z, it will usually show up with like 5-10 letters missing. It is very annoying when trying to log into things or when playing games. It's only been happening in the last few days or so. I've tried removing the keyboard from device manager and then reinstalling it, and obviously restarting the computer. I've tried replacing the batteries on my keyboard and using a different keyboard to no avail. Even in typing this message there were a lot of issues in some sentences and then others it will be fine. Any help would be appreciated.

A:Problems with letters of the keyboard.

Welcome to Techspot !
First you should know that it is impolite to type in all capital letters( Unless this was the work of a faulty Kb)
It is the same as yelling at someone.
You should try reading this post for some pointers http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic33297.htmls.
As for your keyboard,
If it is a branded type that has it's own software these have settings to control the keys usage. Sometimes an update to the software can fix these problems.
For normal keyboards it is really best just to buy a new one .They are cheap and you may get more serious errors if you try to fix your present unit.

Usually this happens to me a lot, and I wanted to let anyone who didn't know how to fix this problem; when your keyboard starts changing the keys into strange characters (*Like this - ?)

Just hit CTRL and SHIFT simultaneously.

I have never come across this problem but at least I will be prepared if I ever face it, thank you.

You do know that in your system specs, you claim to have 4086MB of ram, do you mean to say 4096MB? Because having 4086MB means that you have 3.99GB of ram, which is very unlikely.

when i'm trying to fix some typos it types over instead pushing over to the right the letters that are on the right.

A:Sometimes my keyboard types over letters to the right

Often editors keep track of the overstrike/insert mode that was in effect when you edit a particular file. When you change it afterwards in a different program, the editor may set it back how it was last time you used the editor or even edited the current file. Usually there';s a different cursor depending on which mode is set. Are you getting overstrike when the insert cursor is showing? That would be strange for sure. I don't remember seeing anything like that. At least not for some time.

What editor or program are you using when you get this?

Hiya and welcome to Tech Support Guy

Are you still having this problem? If so, can you post a fresh HijackThis log, using the following link, as you have an outdated version:

Click here to download HJTInstall.exe

Save HJTInstall.exe to your desktop.
Doubleclick on the HJTInstall.exe icon on your desktop.
By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis .
Click on Install.
It will create a HijackThis icon on the desktop.
Once installed, it will launch Hijackthis.
Click on the Do a system scan and save a logfile button. It will scan and the log should open in notepad.
Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
Come back here to this thread and Paste the log in your next reply.
DO NOT have Hijackthis fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

This mostly happens when I'm posting on online forums. It has yet to happen when I'm working in Word.

Any ideas anyone?

A damaged keyboard must be replaced. They are not repairable. Call Gateway and you should be able to get it replaced under warranty.

Are you sure the keyboard you bought hasnt been sold as it has the same problem ?

Other than that I would say that the socket the ribbon fits in may have a bad connection or if your ribbon runs from the board and plugs in the keyboard then that may be faulty.

I see on my latitude c600 that those 2 keys are above the thumbstick it may be this causing the problem, as well....

Lately, I have been having trouble with certain keyboard letters not printing. Periodically, my z, exclamation point and the question mark letters don't print always unless I press the key several times. Upper and lower case doesn't seem to make a difference on the "z". It's not always with each letter each time. Some letters don't react while the others do. I have used my air can to clean them but to no avail. Could it be a virus of some kind I don't know if other letters are also doing it periodically. Any ideas? Can the keys be safely pried up, cleaned and replaced? Thx. Micromos

Look in Task Manager, to make sure that its not your CPU running at 100% for some reason (any cause would be able to be found under processes while you are in Task manager) as it may be nothing whatever to do with the keyboard, just that the CPU has no time to deal with it.

I'm not sure if this is the area of the forums to post this but, I have a problem with my laptop keyboard.

Sometimes when I press shift the buttons come out with wired letters.
Such as and E with an accent on it when I press shift and question mark.

Basically any symbols don't work. I try typing the @ sign and the number 3 will appear. I tried everything from function, alt, ctrl, shift and windows key + differnt combinations and nothing seems to work. The only way to make this stop is somehow to wait it out, or restart laptop.

Is there a way to stop this?

I am using vista Premium 64-bit.

@BLJohnston?, welcome to the forum. You should go into the Control Panel / Keyboard and check the settings.  It could be that the speed needs to be reduced.  Also, did you check the Software and Drivers page for a driver update? If none of this works, you may have to do a full Recovery.  This will return the computer to its original configuration and correct any glitches that have occurred. Please click the Thumbs up + button if I have helped you and click Accept as Solution if your problem is solved.

Consequtive numbers appear instead of letters. Using Acer netbook Win 7.

A workaround is by selecting a language in the multi language bar I use; however, when moving to a new text box the keyboard returns to enter numbers instead of letters and selecting a language in the language bar is required again.

This problem exists when using the browsers. MS Word seems not to have the problem. I did not try other applications.

Try an external (USB) keyboard
If that works without issue, then it sounds as though your laptop keyboard is faulty (dust or moisture)
You could try blowing it out with high compressed air (compressed air cans can be purchased from many electronic or computer tech stores)
But you may need to replace the faulty keyboard

Has anyone else experienced the white painted letters coming off the keys of a new Pavilion dm4?  The letters started coming off shortly after it was purchased.  We bought the laptop for my wife to use and, understandably, she has not wanted to part with it for repair as we do not have a spare one.  So now, a few months after purchase, despite only light use the letters have completely or partially gone from 14 keys.  I am astonished that HP has produced a supposedly high quality laptop with such a shoddy keyboard!  

A:DISAPPEARING KEYBOARD LETTERS - PAVILION DM4

It has happened to me.  Within two months, the N was worn off.  They replaced the whole keyboard.  Another two months or less, the N wore off again.  They replaced the keyboard.  I thought it strange that N wore off as that is not a letter like E or S used a lot but it is the dominant finger of the dominant hand so perhaps more pressure overall typing.   I waited another several months before warranty runs out next month.  Now the N is gone, also S, F, E, V, L, and M are nearly gone.   They are replacing it again but what about in a few months when it happens AGAIN after warranty.  I AM NOT HAPPY.  This is something so basic that HP screwed up.   They need to make a new keyboard with letters in top left corner so they are not struck as much and/or a better imprint.

A:Solved: Keyboard keeps missing letters

This drove me mad. I eventually pulled all the key caps off, turned the keyboard upside down and gave it a good clean out using a low pressure air gun. You'd be surprised how much gunk builds up in the keyboard over a month. I used a light silicone spray on the white tubes that the key caps click into. It helps to take a photo before hand so you don't put the caps on in the wrong order. Hope this works for you. Failing that, and if you've had the keyboard for a few years, it could just be plain wear and tear and time for a new one. Cheers.

My computer keyboard types numbers instead of letters when 'Num Lock' is on.  The Num Lock selection used to only affect the ten key calculator on the right, but now it also affects the alpha characters. How do I turn off the numbers on the alpha side of the keyboard?

A:keyboard types numbers instead of letters

Does each key type a specific number or is it all random?

I am having trouble with my Philips Freevents X55P.
I turned it on this morning and found that every key with a button that can be replaced by an 'Fn' shortcut comes up instead of the normal letter.
For example:
'-' comes up instead of 'p'.
'0' comes up instead of 'm'.

I need to find out how to stop this happening.
Please help me resolve this problem.

 

A:Keyboard Trouble - 'Fn' key replacing letters

Maybe this is a silly question, maybe not. Have you tried hitting the Fn or (if you have one) the "F lock" key? Function keys are toggles; hit once, and every key performs a special function, hit it again and it reverts back to the normal function.
