Hi there.
I'm sorry to say that the keyboard needs to be replaced, this is a common problem with certain keyboards as the binary and hexadecimal commands which link to the keys are getting confused thus you get keys doing other keys jobs as you have explained in your post. You can use a USB keyboard for the time being while you have yours replaced.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!!

Firstly i would check the keybaord layout in the regional settings in control panel. secondly, if that does not work, it could be a hardware problem.

    I am very sorry sir but it seems to be nothing but a hardware issue. I can understand your frustration but the keybaord has to be changed. If you do have a USB keyboard, you could use that temporarily until you can get your new keyboard fixed. All u need to do is plug in the USB to the laptop and take it from there.



    Wish you luck,...

Maybe num-key is on.

hp's are realy funny sometimes they have so many hidden keys that do wonders, try the onscreen keyboard and see if that does the same.

Start/all programs / accessories / accessebility / on screen keyboard

What is wrong with my laptop? It is as if the shift key is stuck


Go into device manager in windows and delete it and reboot. If it comes back when it detects the keyboard and it works then it was a driver, if it does detect it or it wont work correctly then it is a bad keyboard. You can also try a plug in keyboard to see how it behaves, ps keyboards are not that expensive.

Keyboard problem


Try pressing both the left and right CTRL keys at the same time and

see if that releases CTRL.


Go to Start / Settings / Control Panel / Accessibility Options /

Keyboard Options.


Turn off CTRL lock if it's on.

If that solves it and to avoid future problems, press "Settings"


Turn off "Press modifier key twice to lock".

Turn on "Turn sticky keys off if 2 keys are pressed at once".

Or turn off "Use shortcut"


Clean your keyboard.

There are 2 common problems for this.
1. Something got stuck under the keyboard of your laptop. Food scraps or Dirt and Grime build-up due to sweaty palms or fingers clean the keyboard.
2.The Membrane on your keyboard that act as a switch cold be shorted due to wear and tear or heavy key presses. Have your keyboard replaced.

Other problems could be cracked board if you happen to lean or put heavy stuff over the keyboard and cracked ribbon connector.

Problems with laptop keyboard


Sounds like some of the keyboard settings have gotten changed. Begin by checking the System Parameters for Keyboard/Mice and verify that these are as follows:

Caps Lock = Caps Lock
Control Key = Control Key
Option Key = Option Key
Command = Command

If they are not, just press the RESTORE DEFAULTS setting and LOCK your Systems Parameter Page before closing it. Reboot your system and check keyboard operation.

Hope this helps,

I HAVE A COMPAQ PRESARIO V6000 AND THE CAPS LOCK LIGHT IS NOW NOT WORKING AND WONDERED IF THIS IS A BULB PROBLEM OR WIRING PROBLEM?


You can try attaching an external keyboard using a USB or PS2 slot in your laptop. If the light goes on in the keyboard but not in your laptop, probably it's the bulb of your laptop.

Laptop will not respond


It sounds to me that you may have an issue with the keyboard itself, as most BIOS will stop on a keyboard error unless told otherwise. But, this could be a malfunctioning keyboard, or a disconnected keyboard. 1 way to test either is to press the caps lock, num lock or scroll lock keys and verifying the corresponding light turns on and off with the button presses. If they do not respond, it's likely the keyboard has become disconnected internally. Other issues may also cause this to happen, but they are harder to test for. If it does respond, then it's more likely to be a keyboard failure, and a replacement of the keyboard may be required.

Hope this helps!
