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.

Use underscore when typing

The underscore is added later. As in all word processing, type what you want and then set the document up later.
To underscore, right click to sekect the letter, word or paragraph. Press Ctrl and U together and the highlighted letters will be under lined.

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.

I'm currently using safe mode because when I load the computer normally I am unable to do anything. When I go on the internet I can't type anything because it locks up. I tried to restore it but I can't...

I suspect you have a virus/trojan. Download the rescue disk from bitdefender, Create and boot of the cd. Ensure your computer is connected to the internet as bitdefender will update itself and do an automatic scan of you laptop.

Keyboard somtimes does not show letter typed when working with soffware or typing email letter. we have to hit the letter serveral times then it print it serveral times or not all

Hi, sometimes this happens, it's like the pc is thinking about it.
You might have too many thing running in the background and stealing system memory. I get this sometimes and it is annoying.
Have you done a virus / spyware check on your system.
give this a go.
Do you have too many icons in your icon tray on bottom right of your screen. Some of them can be disabled.

Did this start after installing something?

I'm sorry I can't help much, but if you need to ask more questions, please do.

Regards - Anthony

I agree with Celenous, this could be a cause of McAfee, consider removing that software and purchasing a less intense anti virus. I like BitDefender|2489416886 , it has two different modes so if you are a gamer you can turn it down so that it doesnt request information from you and it refrains from doing any scanning until you turn it back on. Other things I suggest you should do, obviously you only had this computer for a month and must have installed a few things I would suggest defragging the computer and running a clean up. Check for adware, install Ad-Aware from Lavasofts website , they have a free version that works wonders on a system. CCleaner is also a great product . This will also clean up some unneeded files that clog up the computer that make it run so slow.

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.
