The key may be broken or there may be something stuck under it, possibly something spilled on it? The keyboard should come off, have a geeky friend look for the screw that keep it in place.

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.

BitDefender Total Security Virus Scan locks or slows down your PC - Follow this...


I see a lot of people complaining that their PC/laptop slows down or even completely stops responding when they run a virus scan or a deep scan on Bit-defender. There is a simple fix to this. All you have to do is change a few things in the scan properties section on Bit-defender as shown below. <br /> First of all you have to get into "Expert Mode" <br /> <br /> By default, Bit-defender starts in to "Novice Mode" <br /> <br /> Click on Settings as shown in the image below <br /> <br /> <img src="drgirish_13.JPG" /><br /> <br /> Next, click on the small arrow next to novice mode and select "Expert Mode" and then APPLY <br /> <img src="drgirish_14.JPG" /><br /> <br /> <br /> The new window that open is "Expert Mode" :) <br /> <img src="drgirish_15.JPG" /><br /> <br /> <br /> Now, Click on AntiVirus, then Virus Scan. Right click on 'Deep System Scan' (or any other type of scan that is giving you the problem) and select Properties. <img src="drgirish_16.JPG" /><br /> <br /> <br /> In the 'Properties' Box make sure that the 'Run the task with low proirity' is CHECKED !<img src="drgirish_17.JPG" /> <br /> <br /> Apply the settings and close all the windows. Bitdefender wont take up all your Laptops resources when it runs a scan. <br /> Thank you for reading this tip. <br /> Please let us know if this was helpful to you. Thank you

My laptop keboard is acting up sometime the letters dont want to type.sometime its a letter and sometime its another letter and then sometime it works perfectly


You may have unwanted debris under the keys. Turn the keyboard upside down and brush gently between the keys. If the problem then affects another key you know you are on the right track - the debris is moving around.

The keyboard "n" letter does not respond


Its not a virus issue, Depending on how long and how hard you have been using your laptop keyboard, the hardware can become damaged over time. Best suggestion is to have it checked out by a local BestBuy Geek Squad Technician, to check to make sure that it is a hardware issue. Otherwise, they now have the roll out laptop keyboards for easy use and travel, and very hard to break.
