Question about Averatec 7171000100 Keyboard
Some of the keys give double characters when I press them.
both the 4 and b keys type b4? that's odd behaviour,
i'm not sure if your keyboard is the laptop keypad or if it's an external one...
if it's a wireless external keyboard, it could be the batteries, as chichner suggested... if that doesn't help, is it possible for you to try another one, or try yours in another computer to see what happens.
if it's your laptop keypad, it's possible that somehow some moisture or even just a drop of liquid got in there, in which case you'd need to carefully remove the keypad and clean underneath it... again, carefully... look at your manual for how to remove the keypad if this is the case.
for either the laptop or external keboards, you may want to try to re-install the drivers... but..
there's something else that can cause weird behaviour like this, and that, unfortuantely, would be a virus.
do you have any anti-virus programs installed? try to run a scan on your entire computer (if you use any external drives, including usb pens, scan those as well.)
i hope this is helpful, if you have any more questions, just ask, and add any otehr information about your keyboard, computer operating system, anti-virus program that you can think of.

If you note which keys type double characters you can use the backspace key to backup one character as a work around, but it sounds like you may need to replace it. If it is wireless, try new batteries first and also try another keyboard if you can borrow one.
