Dell lap top keyboard keys "s" and "a" are messed up

Well, like last week, my keyboard was working fine. recently though, when i type "a" or "s", it'll type ad or sd. It's only those two keys, and it's getting really irritating considering I'm in high school, and writing up essays often. Every time i type a or s, I'm forced to have to press back space. does anyone know whats wrong? thanks.

Ok, first try looking under the A,S & D keys and see if there is anything stuck in there by those keys.

You can then try blowing with mouth or a can of pressured air to clean it out.

If nothing stuck in there, does the keys feel sticky, if so, then there might have been some liquid spilled on it. Try to dry it out with a hairdryer set on medium to see if that helps.

keep me informed

My daughters key board on her lap top has started to act crazy you can't backspace and you can not type double letters you have to wait a second for it to keep typing any suggestions


First, try to connect an external USB keyboard & see if it will work fine.
If the external USB keyboard works fine, then you will need to replace your laptop's keyboard, as there is almost nothing that can be done to fix a defective laptop keyboard.

I don't have a lap top but a PC and when I type anything it comes up with numbers instead of letters. I don't have a fn key so what do I do?


Hi.

You have your Number Lock on. Look in at the top right of the keyboard for a key which says Num Lock on it and press that key. That will remove the Number Lock and you will be able to type letters as normal.



Regards.

The keyboard cannot normally be repaired, especially if it is stuck.

The easiest way to find out if it is your keyboard is to temporarily trade keyboards with someone. You will know quickly. It is not necessary to use a Dell keyboard.

Button broke off PC keyboard


Is it a flat key or a normal keyboard type key?

If its a flat key make sure the things underneath the key are flat against the key and put it back on its spot and just press down on it until it clicks. You may need to press hard but please don't press too hard or you might do some damage.
