    many thanks, scott - dust could well be a problem. It's a nice HP one, so will try cleaning it.

    Keyboard works fine, but no lights or other indications of any locks on, i.e., Caps.Lock, being imperative for passwords etc

Is the Keyboard a Multimedia, Logitech or Samsung.

If it is of good quality and under warranty then go for repair it immediately.

In my opinion the key pad getting dust and its inner plate not working. It need to be clean if can be done by opening.

Otherwise, you need to go for buy one.

Sony Vaio keyboard repeating letters


Keyboards to wear out, but are not expensive to replace. Multiple key strikes and sticking can be caused by spilling "stuff" into the keyboard, even crumbs will do it.

I can`t get any upper case functions to work on hp 2011 keyboard what key do i press


1.Make sure the "Caps Lock" key is not on. Though this will be obvious to most people, if your keyboard is typing in only upper-case letters it can't hurt to check. Look at the "Caps Lock" indicator light on the top right corner of your HP keyboard. If the light is on, strike the "Caps Lock" key on the left side of your keyboard. This will turn the "Caps Lock" off, allowing you to type in lower case letters again.

2.Make sure the "SHIFT" keys on your HP keyboard are not stuck. Dust and dirt can build up on a keyboard over time, which can cause certain keys to stick. If either of your keyboard's "SHIFT" keys get stuck, your computer will type in only capital letters. Use a toothpick or cotton swab to remove the gunk from the key, which should help it return to its normal position.

3.Unplug your HP keyboard and then plug it back it. This will remove the device from your operating system and then automatically add it back in. This can have the same effect, essentially, as restarting your computer. If your keyboard was typing in capital letters due to an error being stored in your operating system's memory, that error will now be cleared and the HP keyboard will function as normal again.

4.Update your HP keyboard driver. Click "Start" and then right click on "Computer." Click "Properties" and then "Device Manager." Right click on the listing for your keyboard and then click "Update Driver." This will update the computer software that is associated with your HP keyboard. If your keyboard was typing in all capital letters as a result of an error with this driver, the error will now be fixed and you can use your keyboard normally again

My upper case S KEY WILLL only work if I have cap locks on. can you help me? ' Im using the MX5500 keyboard. thank you. Greg


Have you tried cleaning the keyboard, especially blowing it out with compressed air. Have you tried to use both shift button to see whether or not the problem is isolated to one shift button or both.Have you tried other letter with the same shift button that the letter "s" is having problems with. If this is islolated to just the letter "s" with the shift buttons then more than likely you will just have to use caps lock or buy another keyboard.

Certain letters/characters will not work.


Maybe: If it is a wireless keyboard....perhaps new batteries...but that is unlikely.  Usually when the letter buttons die in a group like that, the best thing for you is to bite the bullet and buy another keyboard.  Perhaps there was a spill on the keyboard...perhaps that particular group just gave out.  The good news is that keyboards are relatively cheap...and there is nothing quite like the feel of springy, new keys under your fingers.

Gateway laptop keyboard typing incorrect letters


Windows has support for many input-languages, e.g., for keyboards made in France with accented characters,
and for the DVORAK keyboard layout (which is a complete
rearrangement of the letters on the keyboard for maximum
typing-speed).

Go into "Control Panel", and "Regional and Language" and click the "Language" tab, and switch to the "USA Keyboard".

Cap Lock Indicator missing


The best way is to open up a notepad document, and see if the letters you type in are in capital letters. You could also, however, download this free software that will indicate when your num lock, caps lock, and/or scroll lock are on. (this is, if you are running windows)

Number pad


There is a Fn key on the bottom left of the keyboard and a num lock key at the top right of the keyboard (depending on the model) Hold the Fn key and then press the num lock key, that should fix your problem.

Hop into your system preferences and make sure you don't have anything turned on in Universal Access. If you don't, it's probably a bad corner of your keyboard there.
