Question about Acer Aspire 4730-4947 Notebook

1 Answer

QAcer aspire 4730z keyboard unresponsive.

Keyboard all of the sudden started typing the same number or letter repeatedly. It may not even be the letter I pushed. I have taken the battery out and reinstalled. No help. Blew all the dust out - I don't eat around it. Now its just acting erratic. I did take Java off as suggested by Homeland Security last night. I've got a term paper due. Any suggestions would d be appreciated. I can get on the internet but without the keyboard working I can't perform any test. I am writing this on my roommates computer before she gets home.

Borrow another keyboard as a test. If wireless, replace the batteries. Check for malware.

Try running an Antivirus and Antispyware application.
One of your other programs is interfering. (as it disappeared in safe mode)
Try deleting things out of the Startup in the Start button menu.

Keyboard typing multiple letters/ numbers when pressing certain keys.


Keyboards on Windows computers can repeat letters when key press sensitivity is too high. This problem can be rectified by adjusting your keyboard's repeat frequency. Once this is lowered, key presses will occur slower and you will not have the letters repeated instantly.

Click"Start," then "Control Panel." Click "Hardware and Sound," followed by "Keyboard." Move the "Repeat delay" slider further to the left below the "Character repeat" option. The further left the slider moves, the longer the delay will be before a character repeats.

I have an acer aspire one and the keypad is not working its typing the wrong letters any suggestions why. It is not a year old yet


This is either a keyboard or setting problem. If the operating system is told the keyboard is a different type or the wrong location (language) you get weird results. Can even be a stuck key or even a function setting. Laptops use the FN-F7 key (usually) to turn on the numeric pad that is in the keyboard. That will also give you strange results.

If the keyboard doesn't have a stuck key and actually is the problem then it can only be replaced.

If its just a setting then you need to look under control panel for the keybaord setup and make sure it is set to the correct location language and type. A standard laptop keyboard is a 84 key and I believe the ones with number pads are 101 key.
