Please use the instructions in this link to review the functions of your keypad. Perhaps pressing fn + esc will disable the hotkey function that has been inadvertently turned on, or perhaps you have enabled the quick launch buttons or the embedded numeric keypad. I'd have to know what keys perform what functions to say for sure.
If you work through this article and still have issues, consider the possibility that you have a stuck key, or that malware has been installed on your system. If the latter seems to be the case, I recommend you follow these malware removal protocols to scan for and remove the offending program.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

When I type r on my keyboard the run command box pops up, when I type other letters different things pop up. I have to restart my computer to get it to stop. Is there a better way?


your windows command (between CTRL and ALT) is stuck. I am assuming that you or someone else spilled some sugary substance on the keyboard. To clean this... dismantle your keyboard and use a toothbrush (preferably the dogs :) ) and some water and a drop of dish soap and scrub and rinse anywhere that food contaminated. Let it dry for a few hours and then put it back together.

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.

Different letters appear when typing a certain letter for example when typing letter s letter w will also appear


Hi,

I see that when typing in on the keyboard some letters appear as well like for "s' the letter "w" shows up as well.

Was there any liquid spilled on the keyboard? if none then you can try cleaning OFF any unwanted software on you computer, then perform a disk defragmentation on the machine just to have everything in proper order for the windows side.

After doing what was said above restart the computer and try the keyboard again if still the issue is the same, i suggest that you back up any personal stuff like pictures and emails if ever because reformatting the Hard drive and windows back to factory defaults will be next to see if the issue will still be the same after reinstalling windows back to defaults.

If the issue is still the same after reinstalling windows then this is going to be considered a hardware failure to the keyboard and replacing the keyboard will be the next best thing to be done.

Unless Liquid was the cause then the issue may differ if the motherboard was the one causing the letters to type in with other letters which is not common.

Do you have a descriptions of keyboard on Windows Vista There are keys with letters and numbers with icons on them . I would like the description of the keys.


Hi.

The layout of keys can differ with different model and make laptops. The keys with letters and numbers on them are used with the Num Lock key, if you press the Num Lock key them keys will type numbers instead of letters. If you press that key again they will type letters as normal.

The keys with icons on them are used with the function (Fn) key. That means that you hold down Fn and and use the F keys to adjust things like brightness, volume, mute and Wireless radio etc.

If you are wanting a full breakdown of your laptop models keyboard then i suggest you download the user manual from HP support website. Link below.

Insertion of letter "s" in typing


That's a bit iffy. Have you spilled anything on the keyboard? It sounds like the key is a little sticky. I'd replace it personally, but if your so inclined, try popping the key off and use a q-tip with some rubbing alcohol to clean it up a bit. Then pop the key back on.

Usually you can pretty easily pop a key off a keyboard, although they all vary. I reccomend using a thin piece of flat rigid plastic to do it (the MacGuyver method would be something like the corner of a plastic putty knife - it's amazing how much tension they can put on a key without damaging it), a srewdriver tends to gouge the key and cause different sticking problems. Of course you do that at your own risk, some keyboards have retaining clips on the keys (especially low-profile and laptop keyboards). You alway run the risk of not being able to get the key to snap back on, or on some models the key comes off and a little spring goes flying and you never find it again. But again, that's up to you. The worst that can happen is you need to get a new keyboard.

Your windows key (the one with the flag) appears to be blocked. Try pressing them both (or 1, if you only have 1) once, see if the keys work again. If not, try taking the keys off the keyboard (just put somthing under them and pull) and put them bac on. If that doesn't help either, you will have to have your keyboard replaced.

Spilled coke on my laptop, now keys aren't working correctly.


Hi,

thank you for choosing Fixya.com

i strongly advice you that don't use your laptop as of now.
the reason why keyboard are malfunctioning is the subtance of coke are go inside your unit and if you will still use it it may caused you a much problem.
you need to look a technician and open your laptop to take or dry any subtances come inside your laptop.

Hopefully you will consider my suggestion.
