    Letters "E""R""A""D" Have rubbed off and don't want to buy a new keyboard, Where do they sell those labels???

    I've had this happen on 3 of these keyboards (which I love otherwise). After the second occurrence (11/08) I called Microsoft and they acted surprised, as if this hadn't happened to anyone but me. But they sent me a free replacement. Sadly I've already worn off the "main" keys on my 1/1/09 replacement as well. There's got to be a better version. I'm researching it and will post if I find something.

Keyboard typing wrong letters

Your keyboard is not "typing wrong letters", you have a stuck key. The key is shorting out and is stuck on the letter W. Usually caused by dirt/dust/spills on the keyboard jamming the key so it can't release. Things to try in order of difficulty:
>Vacuum cleaner with brush attachment, vac the keys.
>Paper towel moistened lightly rubbed on the 4 sides of the W key; use a knife blade to gently work down into the edges.
>Soft toothbrush, lightly dampened with water, work the bristles all
all around the edges of the W key. After that do step 2 with a dry
dry paper towel.
>Take the keyboard apart; usually several tiny screws on the rear/sides. CAREFULLY remove the top. You may have to turn the board over, lie on its face to do this. Do not knock the letters out of order or you will have a headache placing them back in proper order! Clear whatever it blocking the W and replace the cover.
If none of the above works the keyboard has failed, needs to be replaced.

What is the work of insert key of keyboard.

The insert key is used to toggle between overtype mode and insert mode while typing.

In overtype mode, any letters typed will replace those infront of the cursor.
In insert mode, any letters typed will be inserted where the cursor is. (Useful for if you miss a letter or word out)

When typing the letter n 2 letters print nm

Sounds like your keys are sticking together. Pop the affected keys off with a flat tip screw driver and remove any debris. If there is something sticky, remove with Q-Tip soaked in rubbing alcohol. Then replace keys.

Some letters can't be typed

You need to replace the whole keyboard since the 4 letters is not working at all. You cannot change only 4 letter keys from your laptop.

Note: If machine is under warranty no need to pay for the repairs.

The letters 'wertyuiolhgacbnms' have worn off the key pads. Replacement keypads are £1.50 each on the one website I visited - I would be better off buying a new keyboard! Can I just get stick on...

Try your local craft store they sell "dry Transfer" lettering that you rub on. Then take clear nail polish and cover it with a thin coat to stop them from wearing off.
