Hi there

I just had the same problem - keyboard was adding a 'd' after every 'a' and 's': solution was indeed to clean-out the keyboard: main culprit seemed to be hairs caught under the keypads (I suspect a cat may have been sleeping on there (again!!!)). If it's a desktop keyboard, it's generally possible to (unplug it and!) wash it out completely - make sure you air-dry it thoroughly before re-connecting!

This can be caused by a number of things, would be helpfull to know if you are using a laptop or a desktop and if desktop what sort of keyboard. IF this is a laptop, then my first thought is that it seems to me it hits mostly closeby keys, like B and V or S and X. On laptops there is a touch sensitivity setting. Use your help and support option to find out how as they are different in every laptop and you did not specify a model. Also use compressed air to blow out the keyboard as you may have a piece of dust etc under that one key making it activate sooner than the others or making it sort of overlap to the closeby keys making them active as well as what you hit.
If this is not a laptop, then please specify the brand of keyboard, but try the compressed air either way, I suspect this is merely a case of dust.

Pleaset let me know if this helped:)

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.

When typing on hp netbook, the cursor moves around to another part of the sentence, deletes what i've typed...any thoughts on fixing this?


You need to disable the tapping while typing option in your touch pad because your thumb sometimes touches the touch pad which is causing it to move around to another part of the sentence.

Not me, I love the keyboard.

But then, I have always liked "flat" laptop-like keyboards. They have lighter action and the transition from a desktop a laptop is much smoother. BTC also makes a scissor-action keyboard that is very similar to this one.

Hello,
I am convinced. If the situation were not serious I would say that you invented a new language.
It seems that the letters concerned are aligned in two columns. Possible that the wires are not well electrically isolated. I would suggest you try to clean the keyboard with a soft brush or compressed air. If that does work you should have the keyboard repaired.Was some electolytic liquid (salt water, orange juice) spilled on the keyboard by any chance?

Hope it helps.

Typing and keyboard issues


If you're using a laptop, it sounds like the trackpad is too sensitive, so that as you type, when your thumbs touch the pad, the cursor moves.  You can adjust this easily in settings/preferences.
