Check the connection under the keyboard. you might have to remove the panel near the screen just above the keyboard ito get to the screws. the plug is usually what looks to be a plastic band with lines on it that slides into a thin slot. i had the same problem with my laptop screen. there were white, green, blue and red strips of pixels every inch and a half.

Understand and use (or make sure they’re turned off) keyboard Accessibility Options. There are several types of help for those with typing difficulties, namely:
StickyKeys is an accessibility feature designed for people who have difficulty holding down two or more keys at a time. When a shortcut requires a key combination such as CTRL+P, StickyKeys will enable you to press one key at a time instead of pressing them simultaneously.
FilterKeys: You can set Windows to ignore keystrokes that occur in rapid succession, or keystrokes that are held down for several seconds unintentionally.
Bounce Keys: If you bounce your fingers on keys inadvertently, Bounce Keys will ignore repeated keystrokes until some time has passed. You choose the time period.
Repeat Keys and Slow Keys: The computer will ignore brief keystrokes according to the time limits you set. To access these Options and turn them off or on, go to your Control Panel– click Start >Settings >Control Panel >Accessibility Options.

By default it opens to the keyboard tab. If you are experiencing a sudden onset of bizarre typing behavior, your first step is to visit here and ensure that there are no checks in the three checkboxes, which indicates these Options are in use.
I mentioned that shortcuts ‘activate’ these features — such as Tab+Enter, and a couple of Alt+a letter– and so you may have turned them on unintentionally.
If you do have some difficulty with your typing, such as happens when a Mr. Arthur Itis comes to visit, or/and if you have tremors, here is where you can enable these aids and tweak their settings to get the most benefit from them. Click on the “Settings” button to see the choices. Below is the FilterKeys Settings dialogue.

In the case mentioned, my client had first held down the Shift key long enough to activate FilterKeys (because a finger “rests” there). The lady was an extremely fast typist, and this setting ignored her strokes as being too short. Since she has no use for this tool, I recommended that she uncheck the top checkbox and disable the activating shortcut.

This screenshot shows the settings for StickyKeys, and unless you have trouble holding down more than one key at the same time — such as Ctrl+Alt+Del to activate Task Manager — I suggest you uncheck the top checkbox here as well.

Clean your keyboard, try to blow it out with compressed air, and also take a barely wet rag or Q-tip and clean out the gunk. You might be able to pop the keys off and clean in there, make sure the power is off or even unplug it. Even try to unplug the keypad and plug it in, and/or reboot the device.

Key stroke problems when using E-Mail (Only)


You probably use an online mail system. If you were to use Outlook or Outlook Express this would not occur, because they are not online. This basically means, when you type a character to an online system, it must travel to the remote server, then be echoed back to you. The time can vary between keystrokes widely, depending on the number of hops, latency and other factors. Offline email does everything on your PC then transmits a complete email message at one time when you send it. The speed of your internet connection can influence this greatly. Most DSL connections are fast enough that this should not happen. If you are using a telephone modem, it will happen regularly.

Problem with the laptop keyboard (HP pavilion zd8000)


Firstly give yout keyboard a hoovering gently, then if no change it could be the keyboard driver, this will be either on a recovery disc supplied with the laptop or on a recovery partition on your harddrive. You won't need to do a complete recovery, just a re instalation of the keyboard driver
