    The only thing that could be is the circuit on the system (motherboard) The keyboard came with a different mylar cable connected to it. So it is not the cable. Look at the connector that the keyboard cable connects to. Check that the pins ore not bent or have foreign matter on them.It that checks ok. then it is the system board. BTW, what key is it?

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: mt3705 keyboard problem

You probably have the function scroll button on. See the blue numbers on the letters? press function scroll to take it off and see if that is your problem.

Sounds like a sticky key so just blow with your mouth where the letter is to loosen any dirt or get a knife or something flat and pointy and left the letter up. Does this work?

To get a replacement keyboard for your laptop (if you're talking about replacing the builtin keyboard) will have to be directly purchased from the manufacturer.

If you're looking for a new external keyboard, any USB Keyboard will work.

My keyboard automatically typing letter y and apostrophe's..


Sounds like the keyboard might be bad. Run your fingers thru the keys in a sweepting motion and see if that stops the keyboard from continously typing keys on the screen. If that doesn't do it then its time for a replacement keyboard.

I have a Dell Inspiron laptop, and certain letter


This could be a possible hardware issue. You can try to use an external USB keyboard and check if the keys are working or not. If you do not have an external keyboard, you can try to use the onscreen keyboard. To do this, go to start>programs>accessories> accessiblity and then choose on-screen keyboard. Open a notepad and try to use the keys which are not working using the onscreen keyboard. If onscreen keyboard works fine , then you need to get the keyboard replaced.

Keyboard malfunction


You can try reseating the keyboard but then if the same keys aren't working then that means that the keyboard is bad and would need to be replaced. Could be either keys sticking or water got spilled on the keyboard.

Hi eustaquio_ma,

There is no other option either then replacing the keyboard. This is internal circuit problem.
