Could just be your keyboard settings in control panel click keyboards maybe your settings are set to slow.
You may need to update your driver.
If this does not work your keyboard may just need to be cleaned
If this does not work and you have a cd for the keyboard I would run it again.
Hope these suggestions help

Sony Vaio keyboard repeating letters


Keyboards to wear out, but are not expensive to replace. Multiple key strikes and sticking can be caused by spilling "stuff" into the keyboard, even crumbs will do it.

One key letter 'c' does not work


Have you tried cleaning your keyboard? Usually when that happens there's some kind of grossness stuck in it.

Shift key prints a vertical line


' -- the symbol at the beginning of my sentence is from the upper case of the \ key which is under the Enter key.

Sometimes fingers strike two keys at the same time.

I can`t get any upper case functions to work on hp 2011 keyboard what key do i press


1.Make sure the "Caps Lock" key is not on. Though this will be obvious to most people, if your keyboard is typing in only upper-case letters it can't hurt to check. Look at the "Caps Lock" indicator light on the top right corner of your HP keyboard. If the light is on, strike the "Caps Lock" key on the left side of your keyboard. This will turn the "Caps Lock" off, allowing you to type in lower case letters again.

2.Make sure the "SHIFT" keys on your HP keyboard are not stuck. Dust and dirt can build up on a keyboard over time, which can cause certain keys to stick. If either of your keyboard's "SHIFT" keys get stuck, your computer will type in only capital letters. Use a toothpick or cotton swab to remove the gunk from the key, which should help it return to its normal position.

3.Unplug your HP keyboard and then plug it back it. This will remove the device from your operating system and then automatically add it back in. This can have the same effect, essentially, as restarting your computer. If your keyboard was typing in capital letters due to an error being stored in your operating system's memory, that error will now be cleared and the HP keyboard will function as normal again.

4.Update your HP keyboard driver. Click "Start" and then right click on "Computer." Click "Properties" and then "Device Manager." Right click on the listing for your keyboard and then click "Update Driver." This will update the computer software that is associated with your HP keyboard. If your keyboard was typing in all capital letters as a result of an error with this driver, the error will now be fixed and you can use your keyboard normally again

Sometimes when I type on the keyboard it skips keys that I am striking. I have to strike the key harder to make it register. This only happens sometimes, not all the time.


This is cause by foreign material between the key contacts. Sometimes exercising the key vigorously will fix it, mostimes the keyboard has to be removd and contacts cleaned or keyboard replaced.

Gateway model md7818u keys dont register the letter when struck- happens frequently, especially on the qwerty line


Replace the keyboard -- it's not worth paying a technician to diagnose the problem, and there's little that (s)he can do to repair it.

If the letters and numbers don't work, what is left ?

Keyboards are electronically organized into a matrix of rows
and columns. An internal processor monitors the columns
as it activates the rows one at a time in rapid succession,
or vice versa.

If a complete column or row is bad (electronically) then
a subset of keys will not work. For a PC, the detected key
strokes are encoded into special binary codes called
"scan-codes", which are sent to the PC over a serial cable
or a wireless link.

The operating system then employs several layers of
translation to determine which keys you pressed,
based on the language and location, as well as the actual
application actively running at the time. Also the keyboard
itself is programmable and re-configurable by software running
on the PC, such that the letter "A" for example, can generate
different scan-codes, depending on the selected keyboard
layout.

On laptops, multiple functions and the numeric number-pad
are overlaid over the main alphabetical section, such that a
single key can serve many functions, depending on the current
operating mode.

1) Make sure you don't have a software problem, and that your
keyboard is not stuck in some bizarre or foreign operating
mode.

2) Make sure that the wireless keyboard's batteries are not weak
or dead.

3) Make sure that there is a clear communication path between
the physical keyboard and the USB transceiver plugged into
the computer. CRT monitors and large metal objects will
interfere with this signal.

4) Reset the keyboard: Unplug the USB cable, and plug it
back in, or re-boot the PC.

5) If these easy checks don't fix it, contact the manufacturer,
or replace the keyboard, as these things are generally not
electronically serviceable

Typically the processor/controller is a single proprietary chip,
the circuit board has multiple layers which are very hard to
trace or repair, schematics are non-existent, and the switch
mechanics are very finicky and delicate. The actual
key-switches can use dozens of different principles, including:
capacitance, inductance, carbon pressure pads, conductive
foam, printed pressure bubbles, reed switches, optics....
you name it.

There is no practical way to repair these things, and at an
average price of $25-$100 for a new keyboard, it
is hardly worth it.
