Standard PS 2 Keyboard Glitched Up

I was typing in my search engine when all of a sudden, my typing was suddenly deleted. After that, all the keys started working improperly. 'a' types 'a1', and 'w' types '`w2', are some examples. 'h' also triggers volume control. Upon resetting my laptop, I noticed my trackpad kept enabling and disabling itself, finding only a USB mouse to work correctly. I've tried taking out the laptop battery and uninstalling/reinstalling the keyboard driver, but nothing works!

Go to safe mode with networking and check if the problem persists. If yes, then I suggest that you reset the connection of your keyboard and your computer.

If the problem is gone inside safe mode, then I suggest that you do a system restore or install RadarSYnc and scan your computer with it.

Delete key stopped working


One moment you are typing on your computer keyboard as usual, when suddenly a key sticks or does not produce a character on the screen.
Perhaps you have a group of keys that suddenly stop working.
Laptop and desktop keyboards alike can stop functioning due to a number of causes, most of which can be resolved by troubleshooting.
Knowing how to fix some keyboard keys that do not work can save you time, and save you the cost of buying a new keyboard.

Disconnect and reconnect your computer keyboard, then restart your computer.
Sometimes a poor connection can result in keys not working on your keyboard.
Update the device driver for your keyboard by going to the manufacturer's website of your keyboard, and then download and install the latest driver matching the brand and model number of your keyboard.

Disconnect your keyboard from your computer and inspect the pins in the keyboard connector if you have a PS/2 connector.
The PS/2 connector for your keyboard has six pins, which connect into a PS/2 port of your personal computer, to allow for communication to and from your keyboard.
Straighten any bent pins you may find, by gently using a ballpoint pen. You must replace your keyboard if you see broken pins.


Try testing your keys using a different application, such as another word processing program. Keys like the function keys on your keyboard labeled F1 through F12 may not work in one application but will work fine in another.

Clean Under Desktop Keys

Disconnect your standard desktop keyboard, then press down on a key not working.
Slip a car key or a flathead screwdriver underneath the key.
Twist the screwdriver or car key until the keyboard key pops off.


Use a damp cloth, moist cotton swabs or compressed air to remove dust, hair, and food crumbs under the key.
Use only water or rubbing alcohol to moisten the cloth and cotton swabs other cleaners can damage the plastic of your computer.


Position and press down on the key to snap it into place.
Repeat this for all of the keys to clean underneath them, if necessary.

Clean Under Laptop Keys

Turn your laptop off, then use a flathead screwdriver or knife under a key corner, prying the key off gently.
You will hear a snap as the key detaches.


Remove the key retainer remaining on your laptop using your knife or screwdriver under the corner, then popping it off with a gentle twist.


Remove the space bar by pulling it off after your insert the screwdriver or knife underneath the bar.


Clean underneath your laptop keys using cotton swabs or a soft cloth dampened with water or alcohol.
You can also use compressed air to remove dust, hair and other debris.


Replace your laptop keys by placing the key retainer into position.
If you cannot remember the position, copy another retainer's position by removing another key.
Insert the keypad into the retainer, then position the key over the retainer while pressing down on the key.
You should hear the key snap into place.
Place your laptop's space bar over the space bar slots, then snap it into place.

My keyboard is typing we instead of e again sd instead of d.Pl help.


Your laptop may have a PS/2-type connector on the back (mine does) for attachment of a
PS/2-type mouse or keyboard. A workaround to your problem would be to plug in a
standard keyboard into this port, and use that until you resolve the problem with
your chicklet (standard laptop) type keyboard.

When you plug the keyboard in, performa an "Add Hardware" operation to prompt Windows to
find the new keyboard (under WinXP):
START > Control Panel > Add Hardware

Have cordless keyboard EX-100. Keys will not respond. The calculator and mute keys works all other do not. Have fresh batteries and reset connection button many times. My cordless mouse is okay.


You either need to push fn button (upper left on keyboard) or you need to check that the logitech keyboard software (itouch and a few other names i can;t recal) is running or installed. On mine if the software has glitched out, a quick reload of it and it works fine. This software is what is telling your computer what the special keys mean. If this isn;t running it will only be able to understand the standard type of key signals.
