@nd function on keus

Hi, I use a VAIO VGN FS315E, during usage some keys when depressed display the wrong character and in some cases letters displays numbers. Do you guys know what could have led to this and how to diactivate it? However i discovered that when i hold down the "Fn" key while typing, the right characters are displayed.

It seems like numlock is set to on. Check if the numlock light (near the power button) is on. If it is hold down the FN key and press "NM Lock" at the same time? Or it might be press FN key and then NM Lock after. You will see a light go off. Try typing again to see if you get the correct letters.

Hi

Try system restore. Go to START>ACCESSORIES>SYSTEM TOOLS>SYSTEM RESTORE>CHOOSE PREVIOUS RESTORE DATES. Use other restore dates if needed.

Or try this

If your laptop keyboard types wrong characters, it is rather a software issue than an hardware one. This can happen if you accidentally press certain keys on your keyboard, which enable a certain kind of function.
Try the following steps in case your laptop keyboard displays wrong characters:
1.Go to the control panel option
Click ? 'Regional and Language Services' ? 'Languages' ? 'Details' ? 'Key Settings'
2.Select the option 'Switch Between Input Languages' and click on 'Change Key Sequence'
3.Ensure that all the check boxes are unchecked in this window and do the same for 'Switch to...(Keyboard Type)'
4.Click ?
'Ok' ? 'Ok' ? 'Apply' ? 'Ok'.
This should solve your problem

What are the buttons meant for in the sony vaio vgn-fj180p above the keyboard S1 and S2


S1 and S2 buttons are called special Function keys.
By default, the S1 button turns the Volume On or Off and the S2 button toggles the display between the LCD and the external devices. You can also change these buttons assignments on the window for changing the S button assignments. To display this window, press and hold either button or launch and navigate through VAIO Central (Start, All Programs, VAIO Central).

Good Luck!!!!

Keyboard problem: multiple letters when one is pressed


sorry but even a small amount of liquid can work its way under the keys. you could try getting a can of compressed air to dissipate the liquid that has seeped under the keys, if not then you will need a new keyboard or take the keyboard apart
