Hello, even though without further details it be hard to pinpoint the cause(s) of the failure, this is a not so common problem and happens on older laptop keyboards especiallt if they have been exposed to prolonged dusty enviroments or smoke, if you feel technically inclined you can take it apart and do a contact clean up, to be honest you might be able to find a good deal on a used one, hope this little info helps.

Hi, my acer aspire 4930's keyboard not functioning correctly.. when i press letter "a" it appear as "A1" same as "Q" appears "Q1".. pls help me


Hi.

Try cleaning the keyboard with a clean, dry paintbrush just in case there is anything stuck under the keys. Once you have cleaned the keyboard try typing keys to see if it does the same thing. If the keys type as normal then you have resolved the problem.
If the keys still type other characters along with the letter then there is a strong possibility that the keyboard needs to be replaced.
This usually happens when something has been spilt on the keyboard causing it to type random characters or the characters directly above or below them.

Seeing as the keyboard is a laptop keyboard you can use a wireles/wired keyboard or you can use the on-screen keyboard if you can't get the keyboard to work.


If there is anything else please post back.



Good luck.

Sometimes my wireless keyboard will type multiples of the same character when I've only hit the key once, and then other times it won't respond and will end up typing the first & last letters of a word...


Try plug it in to another USB port while the PC's switched on. It will force the computer to redect your mouse and keyboard and might fix the problem.

Another test would be on another PC or laptop. If it does the same thing then the keys are probably getting stuck down. Has it had anything spilt on it? Try a vacuum over the keys, you'll be suprised what gets caught under the keys (usally paperclips!!).

Cannot type certain letters


Hi,

Verify that the key is not working in more than one application. It is possible that some keys may not be used in all programs. This generally always applies to the Function keys F1 through F12. If not all keys are working in all programs and you have Windows, attempt to boot the computer to a MS-DOS prompt or Safe Mode and test the keyboard in DOS.

If it appears that a substance has been spilt into the computer.

If any type of liquid has been spilt within the keyboard you can attempt to clean it . however, because of the dramatic decrease of cost with computer keyboards, it is recommended that you simply replace the keyboard to help prevent frustration and possibility of failure again in the future.

Thanks,
CF

Dear walnut choco, sounds like you might need a new keyboard. Not real expensive or hard to replace, but have you spilt anything on it? Or even give it a hit? (loads of people have so dont feel bad! lol) Let me know what machine you got and i can look it up for you. JLS

Keyboard not responding or typing random letters


You have stuck keys from when you removed to clean. Remove the stuck keys and see if it works OK when you press the rubber cap instead of key
The back space one may have a link under it if it is a wide one ensure it is fitted correctly
