SOURCE: i have a sony vaio lap top. some keys type

There could be three issues here.....first go to control panel > regional and language settings and make sure that all the settings are for the country you are in,re: English-United States. Hit apply and ok to exit, when you change location there, you will be prompted to reboot. The second reason could be malware or a virus. Go here http://www.filehippo.com/download_malwarebytes_anti_malware/

run this program, perform a quick scan and then show results. Delete all that it finds. Then get this program....
http://www.filehippo.com/download_avast_antivirus/

Install this and it will ask you want to do a pre-boot scan, click yes and reboot. It will scan all your files before windows loads.
The third issue is a corrupt keyboard driver or bad circuit board on the keyboard. Try uninstalling the keyboard from the device manager in the control panel > system folder > hardware tab. When windows reboots, it will be forced to re-install the hardware and load a fresh driver. Hope this points you in a correct direction.

My daughters key board on her lap top has started to act crazy you can't backspace and you can not type double letters you have to wait a second for it to keep typing any suggestions


First, try to connect an external USB keyboard & see if it will work fine.
If the external USB keyboard works fine, then you will need to replace your laptop's keyboard, as there is almost nothing that can be done to fix a defective laptop keyboard.

I don't have a lap top but a PC and when I type anything it comes up with numbers instead of letters. I don't have a fn key so what do I do?


Hi.

You have your Number Lock on. Look in at the top right of the keyboard for a key which says Num Lock on it and press that key. That will remove the Number Lock and you will be able to type letters as normal.



Regards.

I have trouble when typing. The letters skip all over text.


Do you have a small button on the top side of the touch pad that will allow you to turn off the mouse? I bet that you are accidently touching the mouse pad with your thumb while you are typing, and this is causing your problem. I have the same problem if I do not turn off the touch pad on my laptop.

Good luck, and please rate me, OK?
