I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.
I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.
You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)
Logitech has unveiled a new high-end gaming keyboard equipped with the company's own Romer-G mechanical switches. Officially known as the Logitech G310 Atlas Dawn Compact Mechanical Gaming Keyboard, it appears to be a direct descendant of the G910 Orion Spark...
Has a great design.
This happened couple days ago when my laptop started to act like crazy.. It used to freeze but two days ago it shuts down when I'm in the middle of doing something like Photoshop.. It even shut down while posting this thread once..
I thought it'd be a problem with the windows so I installed a fresh one but yet the problem is not solved..
And after some search on internet I came up with some apps like HDD and CPUID Monitor and here's a snapshot of the scan, and I wish someone of TECHSPOT family would help, that'll be so much appreciated..

Can you even get a good one for under 50$? I haven't used ones since the junior high but a lot of people have told me they work a way better. I do a lot of typing for work and I also game. My current keyboard is winding down.
"Good" and "cheap" don't typically go together very often. There are certainly a lot of good lower end choices in the keyboard market, but a quality mechanical keyboard from Corsair for instance is around $100. The cheaper you go, the poorer the quality will be. If you don't mind buying a used one, you might check eBay and could probably nab a K70 - for around your price range. I use a Corsair red LED backlight K70 (w/cherry red switches) and its the best keyboard I've ever used. Love it!!! Once you try mechanical, you'll never go back.
Hi e1! my keyboard is going crazy, I spilled my drink and hitted the arrow keys by accident, they started to work backwords so I tried fixing them by removing the buttons and cleaning underneath.
But once I replaced the buttons the whole keyboard started to work funny, certain keys dont work and others are running randomly... Please HELP!!!
PS: I have a HP pavillion g series laptop.
Sorry for my bad english.
Your keyboard may still have some moisture. How much time have you allowed for it to dry out? I've heard that a blow dryer at the lowest possible setting will sometimes do the trick in the case of moisture, but it'd take a while and you would have to be very careful as too much heat will damage the electronics. I'm not too sure about this fix, though. Taking a blow dryer to a laptop does sound a bit risky. How did you clean your keyboard? Did you use any cleaning fluids?
I don't mean to get you down, but since it's a laptop we're talking about here -- and granting that you've allowed it ample time to dry out , then I think you will probably need to have the keyboard replaced. Do not let that stop you from doing further research on a possible remedy, though.
Hey Techspot I m hoping you can help me out with a little problem I ve lot down a suddenly Laptop shuts started experiencing I got a Lenovo G just last year and everything s been going great with it so far However as of about a day ago it decides Laptop suddenly shuts down a lot to start shutting down without any warning whatsoever It seems that this happens at random also Some times I can keep the laptop on overnight I like to have videos playing while I sleep with no problems and other times it snaps off after not even minutes Thus I can t really finish a scan with avast or malwarebites I haven t done anything out of the ordinary either I don t know if it s really overheating because I keep it in a similar environment as my Toshiba laptop that has remained on around the same amount of time with no overheating whatsoever I m running Windows on my Lenovo EDIT I thought that my problem was in fact overheating so I cleaned the fan area with some compressed air That seems to help a little bit but my computer still has a tendency to shut down randomly just a lot less frequently I checked the temperature with SpeedFan and upon startup my core temp is as high as C then cools off to about C when I m doing nothing The thing that worries me is that SpeedFan can detect no RPMs from my fan Fan Fan and Fan all show RPMs in the program nbsp
Chances are the thermal pads or the thermal paste on the CPU/video chip needs replacing
I have ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC. H81-PLUS mobo in my desktop PC. I looked the menus of the BIOS but didn't find some option for turning the system on by pressing a key on keyboard. Has my mobo such an option? If yes, which menu please?
Press the space bar/mouse button for standby and the power button for hibernation.
At Computex 2015, Intel has announced Thunderbolt 3, a new iteration of the company's high bandwidth hardware interface. And for the first time, Intel has ditched Thunderbolt's proprietary connector, instead opting to funnel everything through the soon-to-be-ubiquitous USB Type-C connector.
Can I mention this is f*cking epic!
I have a keyboard that has been working fine last night then this morning this happened:
When I type o it types o+ and when I type l it types l and enter (the key)
So this makes it extremely hard to get anything done, please help, thanks
How old is the keyboard? Sometimes "gunk" gets built up under the keys and can cause the keyboard to start failing. Have you tries to remove the keys (or take the keyboard apart) and properly clean it? There are plenty of tutorials (video and non-video) available if you are unsure of how to clean a keyboard.
Regular cleaning on all computer parts will extend the life of those parts.
HP G62-b80SS laptop
Many keys in the keyboard aren't working. I've successfully replaced the motherboard for this laptop because it went dead because of some dampness trickling going inside and is now otherwise working fine. It's been abandoned for 7 months. I've reseated the keyboard connector and cleaned it with a contact cleaner.
I guess I need to get a new keyboard, am I right?
Or the motherboard keyboard connector is damages by corrosion...

How To Fix A Keyboard With Wrong Characters
Good luck and let us all know how the repair job went!
Neither my keyboard or mouse are working on any of the 7 USB ports on my computer. My mouse was initially working, but I read somewhere if you delete the keyboard drivers you can reinstall them and it will work again. BUT when I was doing that I stupidly uninstalled my mouse driver so now NOTHING works. I can't try if it works in safe mode because my keyboard doesn't respond when I hit f12 during boot up.
When I plug in the mouse or keyboard, I get a window that pops up asking if I want to install the hardware, but it's impossible for me to do anything because my mouse and keyboard don't work! If anyone has any ideas I would greatly appreciate the help. Thanks!
First I would try to find a different working keyboard because you should at less be able to boot into safe mode because the drivers don't even load until windows start loading.
It's been years in the making but USB Type-C finally made its grand entrance this past week on Apple's new MacBook and Google's new Chromebook Pixel 2 a day later. While it's great to finally see the successor to modern-day USB,...
I don't get this. How can you infect a 220V wall charger which is just a step-down transformer in it's basic form with a virus? How can such a thing retain any data? It has no AI.
Google released the original Chromebook Pixel a little over two years ago. At $1,299, the system didn't make a ton of sense for most but what it did was serve as an example of what a high-end Chromebook could look...
Hello, lately I've been having the strangest of problems:
My mouse doesn't work as it should - sometimes clicking on something doesn't do anything, sometimes it does something different, as if some altering keys were pressed - eg sometimes clicking on a tab in a browser will close it (with left mouse button).
I have tried to locate and update new drivers for my keyboard and mouse, since these are my guesses for what could be causing this, but couldn't find any driver for the keyboard and the driver for the mouse didn't change anything.
My mouse : Trust MI-6970C Laser Mouse
My keyboard: Genius KB-G265
I'm running Win 7 Professional
I can't think of any changes that I did at the time this started happening, so I'm really at loss.
Thank you for any advice on this.
Try them with another computer. If they both work OK suspect either a hardware problem with your computer or a possible malware infection. It could also conceivably be a Windows problem but the other two possibilities are more likely.
I am not sure how to ask this properly but basically I have a laptop pad controller (AKAI LPD8), normally used for controlling midi. I would like to use this device to control my shortcuts in foobar2000. The problem is that the program does not really like my controller. When I check the device manager, I saw that my controller is seen as "audio device". Is there any way to make computer see the device as another input device like a keyboard? If I can manage to make controller act like a keyboard I think I can handle the rest, is this possible?
Thanks for your helps in advance!

I m doing this on my Toshiba laptop at the moment and you ll see why later in this post Earlier today I acquired an ASUS Z C notebook and had noticed that the keyboard is acting rather strange Certain keys will also register other keys when pressed Here s which ones react this ASUS Issue Z54C/X54C Mapping Keyboard way letters are not case sensitive U will also register Zero will register registers registers R W registers S ASUS Z54C/X54C Keyboard Mapping Issue I I places a Date Stamp this might be the problem There may be others but I d like to move on to the behavior the way this behaves is if I press the key U then quot u quot or quot U quot will show up depending on ASUS Z54C/X54C Keyboard Mapping Issue if I press Shift or not The same thing happens if I press the key This is the same for all others if I press one or the other of these keys in question the other appears with it At first I thought this was a problem with the copy of Windows that was installed so I installed Windows Tech Preview I was going to do so anyway However this behavior did not go away Looking for help and I d be more than happy to resolve this problem I should note that not all keys behave this way but that the majority of them work fine It s just that this should not be happening to begin with I ve also pulled the keyboard out and inspected it I didn t see any dried fluids or any obstructions in the keys Should I perhaps consider replacing the keyboard Sadly I have no USB keyboards to see if the behavior is isolated to the laptops primary keyboard although using the On-Screen Keyboard doesn t elicit this behavior nbsphttp://www.techspot.com/community/topics/asus-z54c-x54c-keyboard-mapping-issue.208302/
Without going into details, about a teaspoon of shampoo got spilled on my laptop keyboard in the top left quarter. I tried posting this from it, but it was unreadable. I immediately shut it down & used a dry towel to wipe up excess but some keys still don't work .
Please don't tell me I have to tear my laptop apart The Esc key does work.

My Gateway NV52 keyboard randomly stops typing o, p, l, ., and (.
All f a sudden it starts working as normal. Again while I am typing, the above mentioned letters stop working.
I checked for dirt stuck under the keys but nothing was there
the weirdest thing is, I tried a USB flexible keyboard instead and that was working properly for a while and that o, l, and . stopped working on that one as well.
I am confused why it's happening., and sick of filling the blanks of o, p. l with "on-screen keyboard". Please help me to figure this out.
Thanks guys, appreciated.
Greetings. I typically use and love Microsoft's ergonomic keyboard. However I am pretty hard on my keys playing Star Wars, EQ2 and other games (alt+1, alt+2, ect). I love the feel of mechanical keyboards, love the springy-ness! I also really REALLY love the bent/split ergonomic design that Microsoft came out with. I can type soo much faster on it.
I have searched High n Low and I cant seem to find an ergonomic 'mechanical' keyboard.
So, is there such a keyboard on the market and where can I possibly purchase it?
My friend found this electronic sign. The ones with red leds that scroll a message across it. On the back is a connector marked keyboard. It looks like a Cat5 connector. Anyone know how that would work or what kind of keyboard/adapter he would use?
I know absolutely nothing about the Electronic Signs. The only thing I can do is share a link I found that may help. You can try Programming Alpha Signs Without a Keyboard which points to AlphaNet for Windows for programming software.
My year old ACER Aspire keyboard just stop working in a couple of capacities First the numbers on the key wouldn t type at all Checked Num Lock fine then stopped some thing... Laptop working wrong the type and keys tried to type numbers at top of keyboard well some typed the right number but most didn t or typed more than one number Ran Webroot Anti-spyware and Anti-Virus clean Then I shook my computer to see if any crumbs or foreign materials were throwing something off clean Took out battery nada Restored computer to the day before any problems Changed nothing Pressed every Laptop keys stopped working and some type the wrong thing... key to see if something was stuck or key broken None The Delete Backspace Enter and Space Bar do NOT work at all So basically the entire keyboard is not working due Laptop keys stopped working and some type the wrong thing... to something If I type any one key some of them type what I wanted but continue to type the letter or number until I log out of my Google Engine I have always had issues with the keyboard I will be typing along and the cursor will randomly go back to previous sentences and start typing what I am currently typing It is so annoying Why is it hopping all over the place A computer major friend who teaches computer classes said to write to Google and maybe I would find others with similar problems I found several quot sticky keys quot problems but none on point with none of the keys working or working properly He suggested perhaps a Trojan Horse virus but my sweeps come up clean Can anyone help me Thank you Shawnascy nbsp
It could be a virus. But It also could just be your keyboard is bad. You may need to take it to your local repair shop if it. Is a laptop and have them check the keyboard out for you. I really do not think it is a virus.
My keyboard acting weird in past few days. if I click r, it will go in RUN application, if I click L, It will logout the account, etc. I tried many anti malware like unhackme, Malware Bytes, Adware Cleaner, JKT, TDSS Killer and my Anti virus is Avira. I even tried ESET NOD. All was updated.
I tried 2 new keyboards and still acting weird.
Lastly. I Reformat my PC twice and the virus that modified my keyboard was still there.
Help me. Thank you.
I doubt it was a virus, it sounds more like an incorrect setting in your keyboard settings.
What Operating System are you using & the name/model# of your keyboard. The more info you have, the easier it'll be to fix it.

I have an Acer Aspire Z5610 AIO computer.When I first bought it a few years back the @ and " were transposed.Hit the @ and " would come up and vice versa.At the time I contacted someone (can't remember who) and with their advice I was able to correct the problem.Due to age the PC was running v.slowly,painfully so.I decide to revert back to Factory default settings,unwisely it turns out,but the old problem of @ and " transposition is back.Has anyone out there got a solution to this problem.It is fixable as I have done it before,but how !!!
Thanks in advance,
It's not really a problem particularly as you know which keys to press to get @ or ". This is one of the few differences between UK and US keyboard layouts. You can change the English language version from one of the options in Control Panel.
sometimes my laptop keyboard and the touchpad just turn off. I can't use any key an I dont even see the cursor on the display. Ii need to restart my laptop and then everything works fine. I've already downloaded a driver from the manufacturer's site. Is this maybe a hardware problem?
I have an HP Pavilion 17 e130ez notebook.
You may try to hard reset your laptop by removing the battery off and also disconnecting the AC power adapter/charger. Then press and hold the power button for about 30 - 60 seconds, after you release it, reconnect the power and turn your laptop ON and find out if you're still having those issues.
Replaced the mobo (Gigabyte GA-78LMT-USB3), CPU (AMD FX-4300 Vishera), and RAM (G-Skill RipJaws 4MBx2) in an older system running WinXP (planning to upgrade to Win7 ASAP). Everything booted up just fine, but the HP keyboard and the Logitech mouse, both of which which work fine on another computer, aren't being recognized at all by the computer. No error messages, just not working. Not even lighting up. We've tried every USB port on the system, and even used a USB-PS/2 adapter to try it that way, to no avail. I'm out of things to try. My only thoughts:
1. Could USB be disabled in BIOS by default? If so, how do I change that without a keyboard and mouse, when I can't even access the BIOS?
2, Could the USB system on the new motherboard be defective? How do I test that?
3. Is there any possibility at all that it's related to the Antec 500W PSU--perhaps not enough wattage for this system? (Hard drives are all pretty old.)
Create and boot from a Knoppix Live CD (just google to find and download the ISO). If USB still doesn't work when you boot from knoppix, you know it must be either hardware or BIOS issue.
Just ruled out malware in other section of this forum. Laptop's integrated keyboard suffers intermittent lock-ups for no apparent reason (sometimes works, sometimes doesn't, right now, doesn't). Touchpad seems deactivated (tried FN + F7 in case of accidental disable, but that's not the case), every option related to touchpad are grayed out in 'mouse' menu (config panel). Before malware check-up,tried system restore to last week, all problems were still there, so I reverted back. I have to use visual keyboard to type. Have to work with external mouse because touchpad doesn't work. Tried reinstalling touchpad drivers from Acer website, and didn't work. Computer worked perfect a few days ago.
Sounds like you may have some system files corrupt. This can occur after a lot of spyware. Some times just removing it dose not correct what it has already messed up. Your best maybe to back up your personal stuff. Then do a factory reinstall.

No guarantee, but if wireless, remove the batteries for a bit, it might help. Any lights lit up on the keyboard? If so, which?
I have a Lenovo Ideapad Z575 and whenever it moves it turns off and reboots. This problem happens when it is on battery and plugged in. I know that it must be something wrong with the hardware but what is it and how do I fix it. Thanks for all of the help
So any time the laptop is moved whether it is plugged into it's charger or not, it shuts off?
I finally found out why my wireless keyboard didn't work as I mentioned in another thread several months back.
Evidently the USB wifi thingy was in a USB port that didn't work. When I was going thru this thread http://www.techspot.com/community/topics/unknown-device.202706/
I removed it thinking it might be the unknown device.
Anyhow, I've been trying to find the manual for my wireless KB & can't find it.
I'm not sure which number(s) I need. MS PART NO. X820309-001
Serial number or Product ID? Here it is
Well, I went here http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/en-us/d/wireless-keyboard-3000 & despite the fact its default language is English, the downloads are in any language BUT.
I've bought a z87ext4 mobo + int core i3-4130 CPU. The problem: When I put it together and turn it on it almost immediately shuts down. I have unplugged the memory and it doesn't give a sound. I watched Dr. Debug (the digital code indicator) and it doesn't even light up. I read on internet and found somebody with the same problem after building it but the site gave no solution. Could somebody help?
Is everything properly connected?
A few weeks ago I restarted my laptop and it started making an incredibly loud beeping Sound as if keys were stuck. I managed to log into my desktop using the on screen keyboard but as I double clicked my internet browser around 40 pages popped up so I knew something was stuck. After this, a few of my number buttons stopped working but this didn?t really bother me so I didn?t try fixing it but now it seems like my whole keyboard is messed up. Whenever I press a button its almost as if my return key is stuck. Here is an example of me typing without using the on screen keyboard

You will need to take it to a repair shop and have the key board replaced. Or if you know someone who works on lap tops and have them replace the key board for you. Either way It will need to be replaced.

Nvm for now, it seems to be working now, but not with my mechanical keyboard, I reverted back to an older usb 2.0 keyboard and now it and my mouse both work fine.
though, my mechanical keyboard does work fine on my old pc.
so still a lil confused on that.
I have this dell laptop, XPS M1330 that I bought new the ship date was 01/08/2008. I have been wanting to upgrade to a SSD but I don't know what kind of connector the system board has on it. It is some of SATA connector but it has separate power connector. I am hoping someone can tell me what type of connector this is and do they make a SSD with this type of connector.
You can view the photo I took of the drive here: https:[email protected]/13177305443/
Those connectors are SATA and SATA power (the longer one is SATA power). No idea how it works on a laptop though, I think the connectors just are fixed in place where the old HDD was. Before buying an SSD though, make sure it fits in the old space and you should be good, correct me if I'm wrong on any of this though.
my acer laptop 7520 shuts itself down after booting for few seconds.
It has Vista but dont think its a software / virus issue. As I got into BIOS / booting menu, it did not stay there. it shuts itself down.
I removed CD rom from laptop but had same result. It has two 1GB rams, I removed them one at a time but had same result. I then removed Harddisk and tried to make it boot from USB, but had same result. It was shutting down after 10 - 30 seconds. I see the Fan running when ever I start the laptop. Fan is very clean. no dust, dont think its a heating problem then.
please can some one advise what could be issue.
I ran it on full battery but had same result. Then I removed battery and connected the power cable into laptop, same result. it shuts down after few seconds.
Sounds as though its over heating. You might try taking a can of air and blowing the vents out. If this has not helped. You may need to take it to a repair shop. and have the thermal pads replaced.
Hello All I have a very odd issue here I have a fairly inexpensive Rosewill chiclet keyboard that I absolutely love I spilled coffee on it so I quickly unplugged it used a blow dryer on it with cool air I then let is air dry outside on a sunny day and when I was certain it was dried out I tried it It s perfect no issues That is until recently it started doing weird things such as pressing L makes the computer think I m pressing K thinks it s etc etc Now when I quickly unplug the keyboard and plug it back into the USB it comes back to functioning properly Rebooting also resolves this But usually once to times a day Keyboard characters USB in until types unplugged/plugged incorrect back it does this I play battlefield so it becomes very apparent that the keyboard is acting up when you press L to chat with your squad and it doesn t USB Keyboard types incorrect characters until unplugged/plugged back in bring up the chat screen Anyway here are some things I ve tried - Numlock is off - Different USB Port - Checked my region settings Now I assumed like I am sure a lot of you are that quot it must be the keyboard is shorted out in some way from the coffee quot Well it s a cheap enough keyboard that I love enough so I bought a new one Same thing keeps happening I try it on my other computer and neither keyboard seems to have this issue repeat I am not sure if it s just coincidence or not but it all started after I spilled the coffee I should note that none of my other USB devices are suffering from any weird glitches at least none that I notice The coffee also did not get anywhere near the desktop tower itself Only on the keyboard Thanks for any help nbsphttp://www.techspot.com/community/topics/usb-keyboard-types-incorrect-characters-until-unplugged-plugged-back-in.199975/
I've been working on computers for quite some time, but this has me completely perplexed. Just purchased a new case (NZXT Guardian), new EVGA 650TI vid card, 4 gigs of Corsair PC 6400 (Dual Channel), have two hard drives (500 gig Seagate w/Vista loaded/350 gig WD Caviar w/XP loaded), new 750 watt Corsair gaming psu, new Asus M2N32 SLI Deluxe board (wireless edition) and two new DVD-R/DVD-RW drives (HP drives) and AMD Athlon 6000 cpu. When I hit the start button, everything fires up for about 5-6 secs, and the system shuts off. I've tested the psu and it's fine. The memory works in another computer, and so do the h/d's and optical drives. I keep thinking there's something wrong with the board or chip. I've torn this build down and rebuilt so many times in the past three days my heads spinning. Thought I'd get some fresh perspective on this thing.
Disconnect all drives, graphic card, and all but one memory module to see, if the system has the same symptoms. If the system seems to have the same symptoms, you can rule out those components as being a possible culprit.
The 750W PSU is a bit much for a 650Ti. I take it you were giving head-room for possible future SLI with larger graphics cards.
This is a tough one. Have you made any progress on this issue?

You mentioned wanting built-in WiFi. I'm almost certain if you want a good motherboard, you would have to ditch that thought. A mPCIe slot is used for motherboards that come with Wifi, and they are usually only packaged with small form factor boards. I'm almost certain you don't want a small form factor for you build.
Hello. I have a self built computer. I play a game called War Thunder. I have a Radeon 2900 HD 4 gigs of RAM. A dual core processor at 2.66 Ghz. When I play my War Thunder game I will get in a flight and a half at the most, then the system shuts down and reboots. I have run a stress test and eveything but nothing shows up as a problem. Any ideas why this is happening?
Update: I ran OCCT stress test again but this time I ran it in fullscreen mode. As soon as the test starts in full screen mode the computer shuts down and restarts. I am guessing now that my PSU is going bad.
More likely the cooling system is insufficient and it's getting over heated. Run Eventvwr.msc and under system events, look at the events being created.
I'm having an issue with the keyboard for my Toshiba Satellite P775-S7320. Put plainly, keys have started triggering other keys, as if both keys were pressed at the same time. Nothing was spilled on the keyboard, but now, A and Tilde trigger one another, and the same for 1 and 2, Q and S, W and Tab, X and Capslock. The only exception to this is Z and \. Z will trigger \, but \ will not trigger Z. I've popped off the keys and cleaned them with compressed air, I've rebooted my computer several times, and am unsure of where to go from here.
Try hitting the NUM LK/SCRN LK key
I just got a new toshiba satellite C55-A5302 laptop and I immediately encountered a problem. The keyboard was not responding but I noticed that if I held down the key long enough then it owuld respond. I was wondering if this was a problem with the drives or if it was a factory defect or if there was any easy fix for it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
DON'T void the warranty, send it back to get it fixed.

Anyone an idea?
I recently upgraded the memory in my fathers Laptop from the original 256Mb sim to a 2Gb sim. No problem there however the Return key and the Cursor keys seem to have stopped working even in the Bios.
I have removed the battery and held the power button in for 30secs thinking a reset of the Bios would fix the problem, no luck there they still do not function.
I have removed the keys and checked that nothing has been spilled on the keyboard, no problem there ether.
I have also checked internally to see if there was any damage to the ribbon cable. Seems fine.
To be honest I cant seem to locate the issue and was hoping someone could offer some additional support. Anybody any ideas?
Specs: Esystem EI 3101 laptop, Intel Celeron M430 1.73ghz CPU, 2Gb DDR2, Internal 256mb GFX card.
Did you try re-installing the 256MB memory to see if the keyboard started working again?
The n key had been not working properly and now it stopped all together. I took the key off and tried pressing the white piece of soft plastic but nothing shows up. Is it time to get a new keyboard or is there something else to try? It seems like such a waist to throw out a keyboard when 1/100+ keys stopped working.
Try it on another PC and see.
I'm in need of a new keyboard and am using a temporary one currently. Here is what I like
3)have good short cut keys for things like web browser and email client
4)full size and not compact
I'm on the fence about low profile keyboards, I guess they're good because they require less pressure to press a key. I enjoyed the old mechanical keyboards more than the modern ones.
So, you dont want a mechanical keyboard? Then just go with the Logitech K120. Dont pay anymore than like $20 for a membrane keyboard.
I've got an Asus N61 notebook. The hinges decided to snap a few months ago and I got some new ones the other day. After painstakingly installing them I noticed the keyboard wasn't working properly.
Some keys are linked weirdly. If I press the d, k, or 6 key it prints 6dk. If I press the backspace or 8 key, it backspaces then prints an 8. The strangest one of all, if I press the = key, it prints an equals sign then the time and date.
The on screen keyboard works fine...
You need to re-insert the keyboard flat cable and make sure that the connector lock is properly set
Whenever I play Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare or COD 5: World at War after a while my laptop turns off automatically and my laptops Specs are: 2nd gen. Intel core i3 processor, 500 GB HDD, 4 GB Ram, Nvidia GeForce 610M with 1 GB dedicated VRAM. I have seen the specifications needed to play the game and my laptop's specs are much more higher.
It happens only with Call of Duty games and all the other games works perfect.

I have been looking for a good keyboard for my new build. I am looking for a keyboard with mechanical keys, either cherry mx reds or cherry mx blues, I like the sound of the blues better and I am not bothered by it being noisy but I don't know how it feels, can anyone who owns either blues or reds tell me the difference and how they feel?
I have a budget of no more than £100 (tiny I know) I plan on buying it in the future. I have been looking at the corsair k60, but are there any others? I don't mind if it has LEDs in the keys, it would be a nice feature but not a deal breaker.
The CM Quickfire TK is nice, but it has MX Browns. The Corsair K65 is the updated fully mechanical version of the K60. There are also other options like the Logitech G710+ and the Razer Black Widow.
Has anyone this problem or know how to fix it. When switch on my computer the mouse & keyboard do not work. If I then remove all the USB cables it will then work ok, after a few reboots. I am running Windows 8 64 bit. Would appreciate any advice.
Hello, I went through the process of cleaning my mouse while the monitor was off and I'm fairly sure I clicked something maybe I shouldn't have but after that the whole keyboard was messed up..
E shows up as ]
D shows up as ''
Esc, start, [ , n, y, I, F1-F12 keys don't register, among a few others..
Things I've tried so I don't waste anyones time.. [Windows 7]
Changed Location, Keyboard Layout (English - US) is the only language
Ctrl - Shift x1/2, Alt - Shift x1/2, and pretty much any other variant I could think of.
Plugged another keyboard in, same thing.
Plugged keyboard in another computer, works like a charm.
Restarted, plugged and unplugged. Uninstalled and tried to update driver..
Nothing worked so far, hopefully you can can make something happen.
Thanks in advance.
My problem bit weird... when I right click for 3 times, my keyboard automatically press C

When I am typing on my laptop, there is a delay when typing letters. Sometimes I have to go back and retype because the keyboard hesitates or displays letters in a delay mode. For example: if type "help" I may have typed the 4 characters but only see "he"
Name of laptop, OS, & any more info would sure be helpful.

Have you reinstalled your WLAN drivers?
I am curious if this has happened to anybody else. I have a logitech wireless keyboard and mouse hooked up to a three year old HP notebook that is then fed through my 46" Sony flat screen. My wife was on the internet when she noticed the keyboard stopped working. As she was trying to get it working her wrist touched the wrist rest on the bottom of the keyboard and it was so hot it burned her. She called me asking what to do. I said take the batteries out so she flipped it over and then noticed the battery door was starting to melt. She pried it open with a knife and popped out the batteries with said knife. One of the batteries was still very hot half an hour later when I got home. Thank God we were home. I hate to think what could have happened.
I've never heard of that happening, but I always use wired ones so they only come on when the computer does!!!
Hey there everyone I am looking to buy a nice keyboard reccomendation Mechanical mechanical keyboard to use for gaming and such The problem is is that I am lost on what I should get and what switches are best for me Currently I have a wireless logitec keyboard and I am sick of it it misses a bunch of keystrokes it has a very squishy feel the the keypresses and it runs on triple A batteries which is quite a hassle I am unable to experience or feel all the different switch Mechanical keyboard reccomendation types for preference but I can only imagine how they would feel for example blue is like a mouseclick brown is like a mouseclick except you can press it further than it has too and black and red are smooth key hits except black takes more force if I am correct I feel as if I would prefer blue or brown the most because of the easy feedback it gives and it would be probably easier for me to break into I also know that ps wire is the best for key rollovers rather than usb and my computer does support ps I am looking for a nice keyboard between - dollars that suites its purpose is durable and a little eye candy wouldn t hurt either I am eyeing Mechanical keyboard reccomendation this one right now what do you people think of it http www newegg com Product Product aspx Item N E nbsp

Got through entering the key but with 33 minutes remaining and stuck at the screen ( personalize your software ) thing have gone bad..I have no keyboard function and can only use a mouse when plugged in...

Hello Thanks for reading and I know this problem has been on here one too many times but im just very curious as to asking these certain questions before progressing onto what I think I should do My problem is that I New signal. Card. nonfunctional No Mouse and Keyboard recently bought a HIS IceQ mainly for the cooling system it comes with Now I had installed it carefully no static shocks nothing like that into my PC Now when I boot it up I get no signal and my keyboard and mouse are New Card. No signal. Keyboard and Mouse nonfunctional getting NO power at all Now the curious part my pc came with a HD Thats it No VGA output on my motherboard Which makes me think do I need to change something in BIOS Does my PC only detect that because it came with it And yes I plugged in the PCIe power connecters too Now to what I think I should do based on reading through the forums Cmos Reset New PSU And thats basically it Here is a detailed Spec list Name HPE Phoenix HD gb DDR AMD FX Ghz x Ram DDR ThermalTake TR w PSU Motherboard is a Gigabyte AC model BIOS is AMI Ang TB hardrive ANY help is very much appreciated Ive been on this problem for a while now Thanks nbsp
Sounds like a bad connection somewhere. Make sure everything is properly fitted and in the right place. When you replaced the GPU - Is that the only component you unplugged and removed? Try putting in the old card to see if it works. If it does, you could have a bad GPU.
I have G50V notebook pc. It shuts off itself I tried to turn on again. it does not work. Previously, it was shutting down repeatedly when the fan is hot but I turned it on again when the fan got cool. but now it is totally shuts off. what shall I do?
You could have a damaged processor?
My old wireless setup finally crapped out so thought I d try Bluetooth with the longer range One thing I didn t know about Bluetooth at least with this particular keyboard and mouse to a small extent is that after a brief period of inactivity it unconnects or deactivates or whatever and to reactive it I have to type a key and then wait for seconds or more for it to come alive Very irritating especially like when I m trying to sign into something or am Bluetooth problems Keyboard working Bluetooth Keyboard problems on something I ve looked in the app and don t see anything where I can turn that off I don t mind replacing the rechargeable batteries more often if I can avoid that deactivating thing Any suggestions or am I just stuck with that Maybe back to quot old fashioned quot wireless At least those were quot always on quot or Bluetooth Keyboard problems whatever you d call it It s a Microsoft mobile keyboard and mouse There was a small install CD that came with them I don t know if the dongle would make any difference Thanks nbsp
Well, on the hopes there was something in the Bluetooth app that I missed, I went back and took another look.
Not much there, really. But I enabled Bluetooth Network (even tho I only have the BT keyboard and mouse and no other BT devices) and enabled sharing with other BT devices (I guess between the keyboard and mouse and dongle or ?).
None of those seemed particularly applicable when I looked at them before, but
whichever one of those did something, I did a test on the keyboard and at least
yet it hasn't shut off even waiting several minutes.
Actually, would be nice if everything PC / Windows would be that simple!
I got this laptop in for repairs recently and it has been a very tricky one I already told the client that I don t think it can be fixed but my curiosity has driven me to keep working on it This system came in unable to startup freezes during startup or said no boot device present I pulled the HDD out and scanned it from another computer Sure enough every error check would freeze around Note that I said freeze not display an error I would have to end task to close the windows drive check Chkdsk r from command prompt resulted in the same freezing partway through Disk copy and clone software would also freeze partway So during failure - drive after Toshiba Shuts OS install A305-S6898 off Satellite I copied the users files off manually and went to load a new Toshiba Satellite A305-S6898 - Shuts off during OS install after drive failure HDD in the laptop Every Toshiba Satellite A305-S6898 - Shuts off during OS install after drive failure time the OS install disk would load there would be Toshiba Satellite A305-S6898 - Shuts off during OS install after drive failure problems Sometimes it would freeze during the quot loading windows quot screen of the windows install Sometimes it would get to the install process and freeze right after selecting the disk to use Lately the most common problem is at variable points in the initial install loading process the system will just power cycle and restart At this point I ran memtest and found no errors Just the same I switched out the RAM and still it had problems I tried multiple different OS install disks and set bios back to defaults The problem persisted never being able to install a new OS I tried different hard drives external dvd drive and installing from a USB stick Oddly enough half of my repair utilities simply won t load things like seagate disk utilities paragon and acronis disk directors either freezing or giving weird errors like quot cd drive not present quot or quot memory not found quot The only thing that will run without freezing or restarting seems to be memtest which makes me think it s not an overheating issue since this can run for hours Frankly I m stumped It seems odd that the hard drive failed at the same time as whatever component is causing this problem so I assume either coincidence or some sort of drive controller failure that caused damage to the drive as well as making the system freeze while loading most any volume Any thoughts nbsp
Yeah, it may be a motherboard issue... Have you tried removing or resetting the CMOS battery?
So I'm upgrading my motherboard from an ASRock which has caused me nothing but problems since I got it to a MSI. They both are intel socket motherboards. My question is, how do I go about doing this? I would prefer to keep my files from my prior build but I have read that it is necessary that I reinstall my OS before I install my motherboard. I realize I can backup my PC's files and then reinstall them once I've installed the new motherboard but are there things that I should be mindful about while working on this process?
I have a lot of specific questions about this process. So maybe a step by step instruction or something like that would be a good place to start and I can see if I have questions from there.
Hello. I want to find out why Windows does this cheking to my Memory Card. It happened while booting. After "Checking file system on D:
The type of the file system is FAT32." and other stuffs like: "Unrecoverable error in folder \System Volume Information\catalog.wci.", or "\Sounds\FosterThePeople-PumpedUpKicks(ButchClancyRMX).mp3 first allocation unit is not valid. The entry will be truncated." and "Cross link resolved by copying.
\Images\IMG00502-20121218-1525.jpg is cross-linked on allocation unit 6984." After this proces Windows started normaly. I've cheked my documents on the card and found out that some images were damaged and some old music appeared, but only samples, from about 18 seconds to 56. I foud, also, a "BOOTEX.LOG" file, written in Notepad. Could you explain what happened, please? &sorry if there are some bad spelled words.
It perhaps got removed incorrectly while some programs still had the file data open/in memory. I'd pull everything off the card, format it, and put the data back.
What is the card in? Does it have to be FAT32? Could you use ExFAT instead?
Whenever I type on my Logitech G510, it doesn't type any characters but when I press "f" it'll bring up recent searches and responds, I'll edit as soon as I'm able to test the keyboard on a different computer, do any of you have any Ideas? When I go into device manager it shows that the device is responding correcting and is not reporting any issues.
EDIT: The keyboard is functioning on another computer.
Restart your computer. You have a stick key problem. I forgot what exactly it is called and how to cure it without restarting since I had this issue, but it was a while ago.

You can download a windows 7 ISO onto a USB flash drive or cd or dvd. Contact where you bought your windows 7 and they will give you a link to download the iso. or maybe you can search the web for a ISO and enter your key later. I don't know if you will be able to navigate without a keyboard and mouse, maybe they will work in the windows 7 setup like your thinking.
p.s. I meant windows XP not 7. Iv done it with 7 I don't see why you cant with XP>

Try seeing if the PS/2 to USB connector helps at all. I think it is a sticky key problem. Beeping usually occurs when a key is being overly held down. Try it with any key if you want to see what I am talking about (make sure no text boxes are selected). When the beeping begins, press the key again to make the key come up. How long ago did you purchase the keyboard?
My keyboard has sudden ly stopped working , all the lights work as dose the button to switch the back lights on and off but appat from that its totally unresponsive
ive tried 2 other keyboards safemode reboots updating drivers deleting drivers and replugging in keyboards different usb ports , am I missing something really stupidly obvious here using onscreen keyboard to type everything so appologies for abruptness
Did you fix this?
When I boot my computer goes past the first screen, bios. Then it goes to a black screen with a blinking under score in the top left corner. I googled and saw all sorts of recommendations. The first one from windows 7 staff tells a customer to buy a new hard drive. But I decided to try the simple thing first, unplugging all my USB devices. And it worked. Through trial and error I found out it is the keyboard. It work fine if I plug it in after boot. I switched the usb slot the keyboard is plugged into and it still happens.
How do I solve this other then getting a new keyboard? Why does this happen? Could this possibly be the reason my computer is getting hotter then normal?
Your keyboard or cord could be damaged and sending constant signals to the PC. Try with another keyboard to see if that's the problem.
I am having problems with a delayed keyboard and a mouse that lags and won't click properly. Sometimes it won't click at all, other times it clicks and the computer won't register that it's clicking.
I have run all test to ensure it is not a malware and was directed to this forum for assistance.
Seems like your computer is slow. Open up Task Manager and show us the Processes tab, ordered by descending CPU usage.
My sister in laws Acer aspire 5750z-4885 was recently sat on and the screen is cracked. I was going to replace it for her but before I order a new screen I was wondering if it is even just the screen and not something else that I cannot repair. The laptop since getting the screen cracked will shut off after powering up in about 4-7 seconds or so I haven't used a stop watch lol.
I am wondering if perhaps there is a short or some other dmg caused by the screen being cracked that will not be remedied by replacing it. I have limited experience with cracked lappy screens. Thank you all so much for any and all replies I love this board and it has helped me many times in the past.
Yes, the cracked LCD screen can be the cause of the shutdown. Replacing the LCD panel is not that difficult for someone experienced, but for you it might be too much. You have to disassemble the top cover without breaking the plastic. The video cable might not be included with the new panel, so you would have to use the old cable. The cable connection to the panel is very delicate...
I'm using a USB Saitek keyboard for this because when using my MS wireless keyboard, it looks like this. "when typing,it tends o is letters &sometimes on't backspace."
Back on my Saitek, I found this http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/en-us/d/wireless-keyboard-3000v2.0
On the backside of my keyboard, it says "microsoft wireless keyboard 3000 v2.0".
& that is how I found the about link. Would it be worth installing the 1st or 2nd option at that link?
Or ignoring it & sticking with USB mouse & keyboard?
I know, some have previously said wireless aint all that good & to stick with USB. TIA
Didn't you have problems with a wireless mouse moving around? I'd say something near your desk is causing interference. Wired > wireless.
I am having a strange issue with a Sony netbook (VPCM12M1E) in that the keyboard seems to have a mind of its own, it used to be an intermittent issue but is more prevalent now. The issue is that if I try to type it enters the letters in capitals, if I press CapsLock it goes back to lower case letters. If I use the numbers, ie. 1234567890 they come out as !"£$%^&*(), whatever I do with CapsLock or NumLock. If I try \,./ I get |<>? However if I boot into safe mode it all seems to work fine.
So far I have restored back to factory, reloaded the drivers for the keyboard and pulled my hair out and there isn't too much left now. Have any of you guys any words of wisdom for me
The replacement keyboards are not expensive. Try a new keyboard. Other than this, the motherboard may be the cause
I had someone give me a dell E228WFPc monitor and it just shut off after a period of time and has to be turned off with the on/off switch and turned back on to get it to work. The longer it stays off the longer it works and when it turns off and is turned immediately back on it only stays on for a few minutes.
I did some research and it seems like a few people have this same/similar problem, is this what you are talking about: http://www.badcaps.net/forum/showthread.php?t=20065

Take out graphics card and try again. Also, what do you mean by "Turns out I had to short two means that aren't even the power connector ones."
My ASUS EEE PC laptop keyboard has gone crazy. A few months ago I noticed that keys were getting stuck randomly, typing all Cs or colons or commas. I could usually clear this problem with the delete key and the problem would stop for a while during the session but it would eventually come back.
Then a few weeks later I notice that some of the keys would not work at all. Again this was random as some days certain keys wouldn't work and then other day they would start working again. Recently many of the keys completely stopped working.
A couple days ago eith one key either sticks or the whole keyboard won't work.
I have tried using canned air, popping keys off and cleaning them and even resetting the ribbon. I have now attached a USB keyboard and disabled the notebook keyboard and this is working but it is a bit of a hassle.
Perhaps I am jumping the gun on this one, but it sounds like this is a permanent hardware issue that will require either a new keyboard or mobo.
Have you tried going into device manager and completely uninstalling the drivers for the built in keyboard, then restarting?
I am using a USB keyboard and it is showing weird bahaviour It stops working all of a sudden and then to make it work I have to unplug it and then plug again,but the problem resurfaces...
When I was planning to clean my old and grimy A4Tech X7, I thought about ditching this old keyboard of mine and switch to a new one.
I have 60 bucks to spend for a new one. Please care to share some suggestions for a gaming keyboard under this price. Thoughts and opinions are well-appreciated. Thanks.
Id say either a ms sidewinder x4 or a logitech g110 if the prices are low, both are gaming with backlighting with g keys
The g110 is 55$ on amazon and the sidewinder x4 is 45$ on amazon and newegg
There is a problem with a friend's laptop keyboard. It is said that he had to press on the keyboard key hard for it to register to the computer. Upon removing the key cap, pressing on the gasket and also exhibits the same problem as well. In comparison, a key without the problem require very little force on the gasket for the key to register.
Is the problem with the gasket itself or underneath?
Laptop keyboards are easy to replace... and not too expensive
The @ & " keys are reversed. I've checked regional settings, I've loaded the drivers (MS wired 600), Anyone got any ideas?
You might try reconnecting the keyboard connector to the motherboard
A little history of the laptop: I bought the laptop used from a friends and All the keys work except "O", "L" and the period. I bought a brand new replacement keyboard and those buttons worked fine, for awhile. I finally bought a new Wwindows Vista cd and installed it on the laptop, since it was supposed to have Vista and it had XP for whatever reason. Still nothing, when I unplug the keyboard ribbon and plug it back in, the keys work for a while and then stop. Any answers are greatly appreciated.
Probably a defective or worn motherboard keyboard connector...

I have had my laptop for nearly 3 years but I wouldn't deem it to be a poor performance laptop. Recently I have been getting slow internet, poor keyboard response and slow scrolling, and it is very frustrating!!! I share the BT 3 homehub with good connection speed which was checked and found fine! My housemates laptop has started having the same problem as mine and I really want to fix this issue. The internet, keyboard and scrolling speeds vary everyday but overall are slow performers. I have looked through some of the threads and have seen people posting long threads of code etc :/ Is there anyone out there who has the time and patience to help me fix this problem? It would be most appreciated!!!
First, get us
make/model of all PCs
of the internet modem
and any extra router attached.
Is this a rather new ISP for you and/or are the PCs newish or older ones?
Did you every have good response? HOW long ago?

how can this be fixed?
Getting a new keyboard? plug keyboard in to a different USB slot?
sounds like its done to me.
Hi,whenever I switch on the A.C.(and even some other times),my keyboard stops working for around 30secs-2mins...during this period if we press a button a sound is heard,whereas all other functions are performing normally...And after sometimes it works normally..Thsi happens continuosly.Any advice?
Thanks in advance
Did you spill liquid on it? if so put it upside down for a day or 2. If it is somehow the ac id try not plugging so many things into one outlet. But its probably something you spilled and your keyboard might be permanently damaged. If you flip it right away or even the same day it saves your keyboard when you spill something on it.
I have just noticed that my keyboard doesn't work on certain screens. Specifically the system restore screen where I have to label the restore point. I cant type anything in. I don't get the blinking cursor in the input box. I get the italic I cursor when I put the arrow cursor in the box but when I left click to anchor the cursor and start typing nothing happens. So maybe a mouse problem too. I noticed it in a software registration window too. Running windows xp sp3. microsoft usb keyboard and a wireless logitech mouse
Thanks for any help
When Windows 7 finishes starting at I'm at the login screen the keyboard sometimes doesn't respond. I try unplugging and replugging the USB connector with no success. The light above the num lock key doesn't even come on.
Do you have a another keyboard you can try? This way you will know if it a keyboard that is bad or a problem computer.
