    Absolutely brilliant, after many frustrating days my problem was fixed in 2 minutes. I cannot thank you enough. It may have only been a small problem to some but it was one I couldn't fix.

Look for the numlock light somewhere near the keyboard. It's the light with a drawing of a lock with a 9.

If it's lit up. turn it off by pressing the numlock key.

Turning it back on will activate the number keypad (consists of 9-11 keys in the middle of the keyboard). So instead of getting letters, numbers appear.

Hope this is your case. Kindly rate me if the issue got fixed.

While typing some of my letters randomly appear in other parts of my text


I think there is a problem with your mousepad. It has become too sensitive even if you are not touching it. You will need it checked by a tech.

Spilled some soup in my spacebar then i took it out after i put it back all letters are jumbled. i got acer aspire 1 notebook. help pls!


The keyboard is faulty and has electrical faults that is causing the jumbled letters.
To test the laptop is functioning correctly connect an USB keyboard to your laptop and check to see if the USB keyboard types correctly. If not then the laptop has a serious fault and possibly needs a new motherboard.
If the USB keyboard works OK the you need to replace the laptop's faulty keyboard.
You may be able to get a replacement keyboard from this WEB site.

Acer Aspire One and MS Office 2007 Powerpoint issue


this sounds like a version number problem otherwords check the type face you're using and make sure that one is installed on the other one, MS will sometimes use a compatible font if the font is not found and yes it looks jumbled

The letter w is appearing after every letter I type


I am assuming you are using XP and not Vista, follow these instructions to check the keyboard

Go to Start/Control Panel/Regional and Language Options/languages/settings

Look at the top drop down choices and make sure the keyboard input text is in the language for your country

Vista is a similar operation. Just follow your nose

To form a jumbled words


Using VB as an example

Dim intLength as Integer
Dim y as Integer
Dim arrOut( ) as String
Dim TempLetter as String
intLength=len(text1.text)
ReDim arrOut(intLength)
Randomize
dim boolDone as boolean ' flag to track unfilled positions

Write a loop that gets each letter from text1, then choose a random number from 1 to intLength

Get the existing letter, then put it into a different position in the arrOut, based on the random number. If something is in that position, try again:

for y=1 to intLength
tempLetter = mid(text1.text,y,1)
boolDone=false
do while boolDone=false
r =CInt(Int((y * Rnd()) + 1)) 'Get random # from 1 to length
if arrOut(r) ="" then 'see if spot has been used
arrOut(r) = tempLetter
boolDone = true
end if
loop
next 'get next letter in text1

text2.text=join(arrOut,"") ' concatenate arrOut, no delimiter.


Hope that helps.
