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