This afternoon my laptop was working fine, then the keyboard started messing up, when I pressed any letter it came up with 4 other letters. Then i pressed '9' once and it continuously typed 9 until I


First thing I would ask is this. Was anything spilled on the key board? I had a situation similar to this and I found that my son spilled a Sprite and wiped it up but didn't tell me about it. One way to check this is to hook an aftermarket keyboard that runs off your USB2 port and see if the keys work correctly that way. If they do, I would suspect that something was spilled into your laptop keyboard.

To type capital letters, press the shift key which is the up arrow in the bottom left corner of the screen, and then press the key for your desired letter. If you would like caps lock, double-tap the shift key. Note that the caps lock will be deactivated if you change to the number keyboard or symbol keyboard.

Spilled some soup in my spacebar then i took it out after i put it back all letters are jumbled. i got acer aspire 1 notebook. help pls!


The keyboard is faulty and has electrical faults that is causing the jumbled letters.
To test the laptop is functioning correctly connect an USB keyboard to your laptop and check to see if the USB keyboard types correctly. If not then the laptop has a serious fault and possibly needs a new motherboard.
If the USB keyboard works OK the you need to replace the laptop's faulty keyboard.
You may be able to get a replacement keyboard from this WEB site.

Keyboard letters are typing different letters


Hi Melaine,

It sounds like you're in a word-processing or text-editing application, and have selected a Symbol font. Change to another font (like Arial) and it should clear-up.

Jumbled numbers and text


Look for the numlock light somewhere near the keyboard. It's the light with a drawing of a lock with a 9.

If it's lit up. turn it off by pressing the numlock key.

Turning it back on will activate the number keypad (consists of 9-11 keys in the middle of the keyboard). So instead of getting letters, numbers appear.

Hope this is your case. Kindly rate me if the issue got fixed.

I can't quit a program using apple key and letter Q and more problems


Hop into your system preferences and make sure you don't have anything turned on in Universal Access. If you don't, it's probably a bad corner of your keyboard there.
