Hi, i have a Compaq presario v5000 Laptop that types differentry
on every key eg like when i type "M" it types "S" when i type "A" it types "Z" etc. This happens to all the keys on the keyboard.
This could be caused by a couple of different issues: 1st Depending on the operating system you have loaded, it could have the wrong keyboard type or emulation selected. 2nd The keyboard or its cable could be bad, it will not necessarily quit until it goes completely out.

The keyboard maybe faulty. Connect an external keyboard to youe laptop and if all the key work on this keyboard then most like the laptop keyboard is faulty.

please forgive short answers or bad typing i broke my wrist in an auto accident last night. there should be a a key marked "mode", "fn" or something similar, it will most likely be blue. this key should toggle the blue keys on or off. some computers also require the num lock to be on as well before this works. some computers allow you to set different activation methods through keyboard in control panel. please note most computers require you to have a driver installed for these keys to work. good luck.

Once your satisfied all the keys are clear turn the laptop on and see if it has made any difference.

two or three very small screws on the top at the screen end. When all
the screws are removed you can lift the keyboard up from the screen end
and pull (gently) away from the touch-pad end. Tilt it up and you will
see the keyboard data ribbon, don't twist it or pull it as you will
Using it in English mode? Does that mean that Windows is set to English??
Does it have a standard QWERTY english keyboard?? If it has a japanese keyboard, with windows set to English, then the keys will be different. Shift key with number 2 gives you the @ symbol on a QWERTY english keyboard.
