MSI keyboard does weird things

We have an MSI laptop. We are not touch typists but generally are pretty acurate. MSI keyboard is undependable. For reasons we cannot determine, letters are sometimes not typed, typing will suddenly appear in the prvious lines in the midst of another word. We have no problems with a Logitech keyboard, used on another computer.

    We solved it by removing a metallic manufacture's identifying stacky that was to the left of the keyboard and adhering it to the touchpad. No problems now. Morrison, Thunder Bay

Function - f3 will disable the touchpad, unless you have an x in the f3 key. if you're just typing you don't need the touchpad. then you can toggle back to activite touchpad.

The reason your cursor is jumping all over the screen is because of the touchpad. Your palm is probably touching the touchpad and so it is similar to clicking the mouse. So where ever your palm touchs the pad, it will place the cursor on that part of the screen.
If you touch the touchpad during typing, then two things might happen ... either you jump to another part of the screen and continue typing or your typing stops because you jumped to a part of the screen where you cannot type words.
I have tried taping a credit card over the touchpad, but it doesnt help. There is a setting that controls the tapping but I do not know it off hand. You will have to type with your palms raised up a bit.
As far as letters not typed .. I have a MSI CX700 that I have had for about 6 months now and the period button is not working consistantly. Must just be cheap keyboards. I have a HP laptop over 10 years old running Win98 and withstood 2 boys pounding on it, and the keyboard works fine.

SOURCE: bios flash

hi there,
It seems your keyboard has a electronic circuit breakdown.
Im very sure that just replacing the keyboard will solve your problem.The keyboard has a circuitry inside which send different signals depending on which key is pressed.
formating and OS reinstallation should alwaz be kept as last resort
also i would like to remind you Please do not perform a bios flash unless required.Theres a high chance of completly ruining your motherboard during this stage.
I would recomend you borrow a keyboard from a friend and try it out.
Im sure your problem will be solved.
if you are currently using ps2 port you may consider using a usb keyboard.
Hope this answers your question

Why need to type very slow to getkeys to work rproperly


My Toshiba Satellite laptop was doing something similar. Mine would skip letters and words, as I was typing (I'm a pretty quick typist) After searching many forums, I finally stumbled upon the remedy myself. I removed the "shadow" from my pointer (it's only function is to make the "pointer" appear to be 3-D)...it's in the mouse folder in the control panel. Hope this helps.

Keyboard functions failing 0123456* instead of mjkluioP


There is a "keypad" button somewhere on the keyboard, to cause those alphabetic keys to instead be interpreted like the keys on an adding-machine (or hand-calculator) -- very handy if you need to enter a lot of numeric data, and you are a "touch-typist" when using a hand-calculator.

Press the button to return the keyboard to "normal" mode.

The keyboard of my MSI S260 PC NOTEBOOK is not functioning even if the touch pad..how will i repair it?


I have also MSI s270 laptop and its the successor of your laptop with the same parts, i open my laptop many time already changing its memory and cleaning its parts:
heres you need to do:
1. unscrew your latop at the bottom.
2. Remove the battery.
3. remove the plastic covering, the one where the power button is attached.
4. after removing it, you can now unscrew and remove the keyboard, try to clean its carbon head with an eraser.
5. remove also the plastic where the touchpad is attached. clean also its carbon head.
6. return it all back.

Alternatives:
Use external keyboard and mouse (USB).

Not me, I love the keyboard.

But then, I have always liked "flat" laptop-like keyboards. They have lighter action and the transition from a desktop a laptop is much smoother. BTC also makes a scissor-action keyboard that is very similar to this one.

Go to my computer, right click>properties>hardware tab>device manager, then look down the list for mice and pointing devices, click the '+' sign and right click on your touchpad and select uninstall, do the same on the keyboard line and then restart the pc.

Both touchpad and keyboard will be reinstalled and then ready to use again as it should be back to normal
