Keyboard keys L/G/R acting weird

My keyboard on a Dell Inspiron 5100 laptop is malfunctioning. When I press the L key it logs the user off. The G key pulls up another window and the R key pulls up the run screen. How do I fix that problem. If I restart the computer it fixes it temporarily.

    On this keyboard the windows key is in the upper right corner next to the pause/break key. Nothing happens when I press the windows key. Could this be causing my other problem?

It sounds like the Windows is registering the "Windows Key" as being in the "Pressed" position. This is the key between control and alt on the left side of the keyboard. Press it a few times and see if that helps. If it does not it sounds like that key or the keyboard may need replacement.

Dell inspiron n4030 keyboard not working


Shapsog,
You may need to turn off the Filter Keys option. Follow the steps below to turn them off.
Go to
1. Control Panel
2. Ease Of Access Center
3. Make the keyboard easier to use
4. Uncheck the "Turn on Filter Keys" option
You also may need to Check to be sure you don't have Sticky Keys enabled.
BY PRESSING THE SHIFT KEY FIVE TIMES
Without pressing other keys, press the SHIFT key five times to enable Sticky Keys. A window will be displayed asking you if you wish to turn on Sticky Keys Clicking Yes will enable Sticky Keys or click No.
If none of these steps work you may need to replace the keyboard or plug in an external USB keyboard.
Thank You,

Four solutions -
1) Take apart PC. Clean keyboard top to bottom and ensure ribbon reconnected properly. (some key bashin may be needed !!)
2) Take apart PC. Buy and install new keyboard
3) For Windows 7: Press Start, all Programs, Accessories, Ease of Access, On Screen Keyboard - and use the keyboard that appears
4) Google and download SharpKeys (changes one key to act as another). Example change # (seldom used) to wot ever. And then even lift off the keys and swop to match your choice.

If you look at the function buttons for example f1- f12.
there should be symbols in a light color. at the same time there will b a function key on your keyboard usually has the letters (fn) you hold this button down while pressing those other function buttons they all do something different so look for one that looks like a pics of the sun.

Dell notebook keyboard malfunction


I suspect just as you suggested something was spilled on it. Other than loose keys laptop keyboards are generally not repairable. They are not that difficult to replace, but check the Service Manual before deciding to do it yourself.

You can try reseating the keyboard connector. If that doesn’t work, the keyboard needs to be replaced. To reseat the keyboard connector, follow this link: http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/ins5100/en/sm/keyboard.htm#1084976
Be sure to remove AC power and the Battery.
