This afternoon my laptop was working fine, then the keyboard started messing up, when I pressed any letter it came up with 4 other letters. Then i pressed '9' once and it continuously typed 9 until I


First thing I would ask is this. Was anything spilled on the key board? I had a situation similar to this and I found that my son spilled a Sprite and wiped it up but didn't tell me about it. One way to check this is to hook an aftermarket keyboard that runs off your USB2 port and see if the keys work correctly that way. If they do, I would suspect that something was spilled into your laptop keyboard.

Some keys on keyboard not working on my acer aspire 5253-B2692


Im going to assume you didn't spill anything on the keyboard here...The best solution for you is to take the keyboard out and reseat the ribbon cable that holds it in place. Sometimes those cables get just a little bit loose, but a little can cause a lot of trouble as you can see. Let's see how much trouble...open "notepad" or some other writing program you have....type every single letter and number and see which ones you are missing. Let me know if there are any others that don't work....then we'll go through the process of taking the keyboard out and reseating it.

Different letters appear when typing a certain letter for example when typing letter s letter w will also appear


Hi,

I see that when typing in on the keyboard some letters appear as well like for "s' the letter "w" shows up as well.

Was there any liquid spilled on the keyboard? if none then you can try cleaning OFF any unwanted software on you computer, then perform a disk defragmentation on the machine just to have everything in proper order for the windows side.

After doing what was said above restart the computer and try the keyboard again if still the issue is the same, i suggest that you back up any personal stuff like pictures and emails if ever because reformatting the Hard drive and windows back to factory defaults will be next to see if the issue will still be the same after reinstalling windows back to defaults.

If the issue is still the same after reinstalling windows then this is going to be considered a hardware failure to the keyboard and replacing the keyboard will be the next best thing to be done.

Unless Liquid was the cause then the issue may differ if the motherboard was the one causing the letters to type in with other letters which is not common.

There is not so much that could be done to repair a keyboard. Disassemble the laptop, check the ribbon cable connecting the keyboard to the motherboard. If the ribbon cable is loose, tighten it. If it is tight, replace the keyboard with a new one

My keyboard type two letters for example fvjml. I have hp pavilion entertainment pc.


You need to replace the keyboard.

Have you spilled anything on the keyboard? If so, and if it was sticky, this would explain the problem. Unfortunately, you cannot get the keyboard replaced under warranty if you spilled on it, since that is considered "user abuse" or "user-caused damage". If you have not spilled anything, however, and if your computer is still in warranty, then you should have no problem getting the keyboard replaced. Since this is a consumer laptop (as opposed to the business laptops, which I am authorized to repair), I would suggest taking it to Best Buy. If it's out of warranty, you should be able to replace the keyboard yourself isf you are able to locate one on ebay or wherever. HP keybards are pretty easy to replace. Two or three screws on the bottom will release it and you can pop it out. Just don't yank the cable out.

Mouse pad wont work after water spill


not difficult..with right tools and patience..the touchpad is part of the upper assembly, and requires that the bottom be removed. When I do this, it takes around an hour.

Solution #1, Go to RUN type in 'msconfig'.
In startup uncheck MotiveSB.
Try to reinstall the keyboard driver. Solution #2
  Sounds like it may also be dirt or some spilled soda.
-- Had the same problem after an OJ spill. --
If you feel comfortable about removing the keyboard, disconnect all the wires and cables, then give the keyboard a thorough washing. Then let it dry overnight.
If that doesn't sound like something you want to attempt, then you will have to take it in to a computer shop.
