SOURCE: Keyboard won't stop repeating the hyphen/underscore key.

Hey,

You have few solutions to this

  1. disconnect the keyboard flex cable from the motherboard so the keyboard is not connected at all.
  2. replace the keyboard
On option 1 you would need to take the laptop apart from the top so that you can take the keyboard out so that you can disconnect the cable, then place it back in.


On option 2 you would also need to take the laptop apart / open it from the top to get the keyboard out and disconnect the cable. and replace it with a new keyboard.

Look around ebay for the correct keyboard for your model, here is a ebay listing for acer laptop keyboards

Thanks and good luck.

How do I apply an underscore in an email address?


On most keyboards, the underscore is Shift+Hyphen (usually to the right of 0 on the standard keyboard's row above the QWERTY keys). If you want to underline an email address and your email program supports HTML, you can use <span style="text-decoration: underline;">email@address.com </span>. (You could alternatively make the email address a mail-to link, <a href="mailto:email@address.com">email@address.com</a> .)

I hope this helps.

How to type the underscore


Press and hold down the Shift key, then press the underscore/hyphen key

1 Answer

- key does this: '-' and when I hold shift and do this _ it does this. "_


That's how it's suppose to be. When you press the hyphen (-) you get a hyphen(-) and when you hold shift and press the hyphen(-) you get an underscore(_).
If what you really mean is they are reversed or behaving funny you might have sticky keys on. To turn off sticky keys go in to Control Panel > Ease and Access Center > "Make the keyboard easier to use" and make sure sticky keys is unchecked.
If this is not the issue or you need more assistance feel free to comment back.
