Keyboard problem on the Dell Latitude D610

The letter "A or a" sometimes produces 4 to 5 characters (not a's or maybe 1 a in the group). Bad keyboard?

Hello Bdowhower9,

It could be a bad keyboard, and it could also be a slightly loose connection.. I actually caused a similar problem in a dell I had a few years back. I took it apart to fix a component that required me remove the keyboard. It has a snap-in connector, and I was a bit rough putting it back in and I scratched the connector. I ended up losing several keys all over my keyboard, and I ordered a new one to replace it.

The keyboard connector to the motherboard may have just become loose or dirty through use over several years; you may want someone to pop it open and check it out.

If it turns out to be just a bad keyboard, you can order a new one for not too much:

Parts People is a solid and reputable parts site; I've ordered from them no less than four times in the past for stuff.

Good luck!

I have a new kensington keyboard, but some of the characters are not working, such as the at sign in my yahoo email. They are producing different characters. I have an Apple Ipad 2. Help!


You have to check that is also the correct type of keyboard as well as checking keyboard/region language. It might be a 101 button windows keyboard with the machine you are using being set to 84 button oeyboard in control panel

Kevin, it seems like the keyboard is bad on your laptop. If it has an extended warranty you should take it in for repair.

Did something spill on it recently or did it fall? Sometimes bumps or falls can cause connections to become loose and malfunction.

To gain access to your computer you can try a usb keyboard.

Keyboard letters are numbers and numbers are letters


Examine your keyboard to ensure your "Number Lock" key is not activated.

This activation is indicated by the key being lit up.


If the key is activated, press it to deactivate the lock.

The number lock key will deactivate an entire segment of your keyboard


Start, click Run, and type regedit to open the Windows registry editor.

In the registry, open the below folders.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\
Control Panel\
Keyboard\

Within the keyboard folder, you should have a string value named "InitialKeyboardIndicators" with a value of 0, 1, or 2. Below is the explanation of each of these values.

0 = Num Lock is turned OFF after the logon.
1 = Disable Num Lock.
2 = Numlock is turned ON after the logon.



hope this helps

This problem is common in all laptops that have a pointing stick (eraser tip like) in the keyboard between G H and B buttons. It's a registry problem that cannot be fixed easily. The most economic and time effective way t solve it is to format your hard disk and reinstall your operating system.
Make sure to update your operating system before downloading any other programs or application and even before uploading your backed up files.
If this does not work for you, the problem will definitaly be a hardware issue caused by the pointing stick. Then the keyboard or the motherboard of your laptop should be replaced (I hpe your laptop is still on waranty....)
