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.

How to troubleshoot hp G56 keyboard when different letters appear when typing a certain letter for example when typing letter s letter w will also appear and so on and so forth


1. Do a BIOS memory test, to check your notebook memory.
2. If OK, make a system backup of your current installation on an external medium.
(just in case you want it back later)
3. Recover the factory setup installation and check the keyboard if it is working OK.
4. If not, the mainboard of the notebook is probably faulty.

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.

Examine your keyboard for any build-up of dust, dirt, liquids or other particles that could be causing the keys to type the wrong characters. Allow any loose dirt to fall out by inverting and shaking the keyboard lightly.
Confirm that your keyboard is set to the English language. Go to your control panel and click on the "Regional and Language Options" icon. If the setting appears to be in a foreign language, change it to English/U.S.
Check if your number lock key is on. If so, depress the key to disengage it.
Run a character key test by using the Microsoft Keyboard Diagnostics (MSKEY) program. While in the MSKEY program, hit several keys to make certain that they are the same keys that are identified in the MSKEY window. To start MSKEY in Windows Vista, select "All Programs>>Accessories>>Run" from the Start menu. Type "mskey" in the box and depress the "OK" button. Start MSKEY In Windows XP by clicking on "Run" from the Start menu. Type "mskey" in the Open box, then hit "OK." Depress either "PS/2" or "USB" to apply it to your type of keyboard hookup. MSKEY software is only available with Microsoft IntelliType version 1.1 or later.
Remember to clean your keyboard regularly to keep it free of dust and debris.
Don't disassemble the keyboard because it may affect the validity of your manufacturer warranty!

Your windows key (the one with the flag) appears to be blocked. Try pressing them both (or 1, if you only have 1) once, see if the keys work again. If not, try taking the keys off the keyboard (just put somthing under them and pull) and put them bac on. If that doesn't help either, you will have to have your keyboard replaced.

G6000 hen pressing keyboard letter it type 4


Hi there

Does this happen with almost every key, or only certain keys? And if you press a key very quickly, does it still register it as 4 presses?

Also, please confirm the operating system on the laptop, such as XP or Vista.

Please do not rate this solution unless I have answered your question or your reply will not be returned to me. Thanks.

Keyboard types things that I don't type or opens new windows


Your hand is probably just hitting the CTRL key accidentally when you type; I had the same problem and pried off the CTRL key and have had no problems since.

Cannot type certain letters


Hi,

Verify that the key is not working in more than one application. It is possible that some keys may not be used in all programs. This generally always applies to the Function keys F1 through F12. If not all keys are working in all programs and you have Windows, attempt to boot the computer to a MS-DOS prompt or Safe Mode and test the keyboard in DOS.

If it appears that a substance has been spilt into the computer.

If any type of liquid has been spilt within the keyboard you can attempt to clean it . however, because of the dramatic decrease of cost with computer keyboards, it is recommended that you simply replace the keyboard to help prevent frustration and possibility of failure again in the future.

Thanks,
CF
