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.

Try connecting the keyboard to a different laptop.
If the "lag" and the "missing" letters still occur,
the keyboard is the problem.

If not, try a different keyboard with your computer, to see if this "other" keyboard has the same problem. If so, then your computer, not your keyboard, is the problem.

It sounds like a keyboard problem, maybe a spill, if so lit it sit on its side for a couple of days it may dry and heal itself, otherwise you will need a tech.

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.

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.
