While typing text my cursor jumps back 2-3 lines


The keyboard speed maybe set too low for your typing skills, try increasing the keyboard speed.
Open the Control Panel - Keyboard - Speed tab and move the speed slider to the max speed.

Keyboard on joybook p52


If you've changed keyboards and install the operating system and it is still happening then you've done about all there is you can do in case if it was hardware or virus related.

Have you tried booting up in Safe Mode and see if the keys work there? If so you still have a virus that has hijacked your keyboard.
Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn itback on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFEMODE. Take the Safe Mode option and let it boot up. Safe Mode will lookdifferent to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this isnormal.If it still does not work in Safe Mode try a Virtual Keyboard that

Go to www.google.com and in the search box type:"download.cnet.com" (without the quotes). Click the link to goto the site and look on the left side when the site opens up and you will see agray area that says FIND SOFTWARE. In the white search box under FindSoftware type: "Virtual Keyboard" (without the quotes) and click themirror to search. When the search results come back look for FREE VIRTUALKEYBOARD. Download and Install it. It's totally FREE. Alsouncheck anything that pops up other than the license agreement during thedownload and installation. You only want the Free Keyboard and not theother junk.

You can use it to solve your keyboard problem. Just open up whatever it is youwant to type on such as the web address in an browser, a word document, etc.,then open the Free Virtual Keyboard and it will sit on top of whatever you weredoing. You can move it around so that it is not in your way also. Use your mouse pointer to point and click on the key you want to type on the virtual keyboard.

How can i clean the keys of an ibm thinkpad T23


1. Purchase a can of compressed air (Walmart) 2. Hold laptop upside down. 3. Spray the compressed air at the keys starting at one end. 4. Keep moving the flow of air from one end of the keyboard to the other in sweeping motion. 5. This should clear out any trapped debris. 6. Repeat if necessary.

Toshiba satellite pro keyboard typing weird characters


I am not sure what make your computer is exactly so, I would recommend google.

It sounds like it could simply be a driver error. But I am not really sure. I would try updating the drivers for the keyboard and see if that helps. Maybe even reinstall them to assure that none of them have been corrupted or somehow deleted.

My email is mattweed9@gmail.com. If this does not work email me with the your problem in the subject title, and we will see what we can do.

Problem with keyboard


When you hook an external keyboard to it, does it type normally? I am guessing it probably does but you need to test that first. Find a USB keyboard, hook it to it, wait for it to start working and check it out.

If the external keyboard types normally as I think it will then you probably need a new keyboard. If however your computer was damaged by moisture or unnatural compression to the keyboard, a new keyboard may not fix it. Moisture damage or compression damage to the computer can be permanent, but my first guess is a keyboard would do the trick.

Taking the keyboard off a Lenovo (less than 4 years old) is very easy. There about 4 or 5 screws on the bottom that need removed and the wrist rest (which pops out) then they keyboard comes out pretty easy.

Instruction for keyboard on T23 laptop


On most notebook PCs, there is a key at the lower left labeled "Fn". You hold this key down while also pressing the key that has the third symbol you want. This answer works for MOST notebook PC keyboards. I can't guarantee that it will work for yours. Try it.
