Dear walnut choco, sounds like you might need a new keyboard. Not real expensive or hard to replace, but have you spilt anything on it? Or even give it a hit? (loads of people have so dont feel bad! lol) Let me know what machine you got and i can look it up for you. JLS

What is wrong with my laptop? It is as if the shift key is stuck


Go into device manager in windows and delete it and reboot. If it comes back when it detects the keyboard and it works then it was a driver, if it does detect it or it wont work correctly then it is a bad keyboard. You can also try a plug in keyboard to see how it behaves, ps keyboards are not that expensive.

Keyboard typing multiple letters/ numbers when pressing certain keys.


Keyboards on Windows computers can repeat letters when key press sensitivity is too high. This problem can be rectified by adjusting your keyboard's repeat frequency. Once this is lowered, key presses will occur slower and you will not have the letters repeated instantly.

Click"Start," then "Control Panel." Click "Hardware and Sound," followed by "Keyboard." Move the "Repeat delay" slider further to the left below the "Character repeat" option. The further left the slider moves, the longer the delay will be before a character repeats.

My keyboard is messed up. i am pressing the FN button but when i let go it goes back to turning letters into numbersers


You have press the NumLk key (number lock) and this changes the right hand keys to a number pad.
Press the NumLk key (also doubles as the ScrLk key to toggle the Number lock). it is near the F12 function key. When the NumLk has been enabled a LED light is turn on to indicate this function has been selected. Press the NumLk key again to turn off the Number Lock.

Above my scroll/# lock the lightbar is lit,and some letters produce #... i = 5 etc


Sounds like yo have the scroll lock or num lock turned on. If the scroll key is a colored key (the scroll lk lettering is blue) then you will have to Press and Hold the FN function key at the lower left portion of the keyboard then hit the scroll key to turn it off. When it is turned on if you press the letter i you get the number 5. If you press the letter O you get the number 6.

Notice that the numbers on the keys that have letters are a different color than the letters (blue most times). That means you have to Press and Hold the blue FN function key at the lower left portion of the keyboard then hit the key with the same color if you want the colored representation to happen.

Some laptops will use a Square Box instead of the blue colors on the keys. In that case you have to press and hold the key a the lower left portion of the keyboard that has the square box, then hit the key you want.

I cannot log in after the welcome screen is finished... where it requires user name.... when i start to type alpha-numeric keys it does not show any letters or numbers... only space bar and back space are...


If using windows vista or 7, at the welcome screen in which one must log in, there is a small icon at the lower right corner. This will bring up a menu (and may start reading the menu aloud). On this menu there is an option to type without the keyboard, which enables the on screen keyboard. Try using this to log in.

If the issue is present even with the on screen keyboard, the issue lies with windows itself. Try restoring; directions to do this ca easily be found by doing a Google search for windows system restore.

My k'board is not responding properly I have to hold the key down to get it to type a letter. Help. Each time a key is pressed it makes a ''blip'' sound also. Strangely the k'board worked fine when logging...


You need to turn OFF your Filter Key option for beeping key strokes.
1) Go to START > Control Panel > Accessibility Options
2) In the window Accessibility Options > select the tab Keyboard
3) Under frame FILTER KEYS, select button SETTINGS
4) In the window Settings For FilterKeys > under NOTIFICATION >
5) UNcheck "Beep when keys pressed or accepted".

I cant undo the fn key on the mini note


You should be able to turn off the built in numeric keypad by pressing the fn key and the num lk simultaneously. The num lk is directly above the +/= key. If after doing this you still find you only momentarily turn off the numeric keyboard then there is another underlying issue. At that point you should take your unit to your area HP repair center.

Keyboard letters all mixed up???


Make sure the "Num Lock" key isn't activated (LED Off).
Windows 2000 / XP actually saves the last "Num Lock" setting when you log off and restores it when you restart.
