I had the same problem, but with an IBM Thinkpad laptop. Beleive me the only solution I found was to reinstall windows. Its a nightmare, because you need the letters, and mines was worse, you pressed some keys and a diferent character appeared. I made a reinstalation and the problem disappeared. In the meantime I had to use the character map, copy and paste to live through.

Keyboard


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.

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.

I press certain letter keys and numbers appear, the number keys are fine just the letters, what is the fix for this error?


You have your numbers lock on, press the NumLk key and that should correct it. You will notice on you keyboard that there are small numbers on it below some of the letters, this is so you can use the keyboard has a 10 key number pad/ calculator etc. If pressing the NumLk key does not work, the key may be stuck or you have a bad keyboard

My dell xps m140 keyboard is making double letters


Letters may be sticky. Did you drop coffee, soda or any liquid on the keyboard? Does the letter key "stick" and come up a second after you release it?
You may need to clean or replace the keyboard. To be on the safe side BEFORE you do it, plug a full size keyboard on the back of your laptop and check if the problem goes away.

On my Toshiba Satellite Pro M15-S405, i would push a certain letter on the keyboard and instead of typing that letter, it would make a window pop up. Is there some kind of setting that i can change to...


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.

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
