The problem you're having is a setting in your control panel. I don't know what OS you're using but if it is Vista, go to control panel and click on ease of acces...and click on MAKE THE KEYBOARD EASIER TO USE...unclick Turn on StickyKeys, Togglekeys and filter keys. Then go to control panel and open Keyboard...and increase the repeat and delay rate. If all these doesnt work...it means it might be a hardware problem

When pressing number on laptop its showing characters


From your description I must assume that if all other keyboard functions and keys work properly then the keyboard is faulty. For the number keys to print the upper case characters shown on those keys requires a shift key to be depressed or stuck. If all other keys work properly, replace the keyboard. Otherwise look for a stuck shift key. I have found keyboards for sale on Ebay.

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.

My laptop keyboard not working normally, keys not display the keys i want to type, display the other character on the keyboard...my laptop model ASUS eee PC 1001


Hello,

This is because you have Num Lk activated.
To deactivate, hold down the Fn key and press NumLk (it's the same key as insert)

Now you will have the normal characters when typing.

I got a new key board it was working yesterday when i kept switching my pc on and off but today it wont work what cud i try


Hi


Please check whether your keyboard is properly plugged in to your computer. If it is plugged in properly then try and change the slot of the keyboard(if its a USB port keyboard). If this doesn't help then try to check the BIOS settings for keyboard settings.
To enter BIOS settings press DEL key continuosly or F8(Function key 8) continuosly until the BIOS menu appears. Under the menu select the option of Hardware->Keyboard-> check whether it is enabled or disabled. If it is disabled then enable it.

Try using this keyboard with another Computer, if it doesn't work with other Computer as well then you can get it replaced for a new one.

Logitech MX3200 Wireless keyboard connects but prints garbage


Yes, I have a solution. Throw the bugger away! This has been the biggest piece of garbage I have ever bought. It has loads of unecessary features like using the buttons for other things. I am sick of it asking me if I want to assign an action to a key. I want a bog standard wireless keyboard. Yes, I'll assign an action alright. I'll throw it through the bloody window!!!!!!

FUNCTION KEYS & OTHER RIGHT HAND SIDE KEYS


That means that you turned on the numlock on the laptop keyboard, On an acer if im not mistaken you have to press one of the function keys to deactivate it. Look for the icon with NUM on it and press it. if that does not work you may have to press FN then that icon.

Gateway Keyboard left shift key adds a pipe character


The driver will not fix the problem, as this is a mechanical problem. I had the same problem and was able to fix it. Instructions with pictures can be found at: http://lotus.kick-***.net/keyboard

Here are the instructions without the pictures:

I had a problem with my Gateway keyboard where whenver I pressed the left shift key, it type a pipe | (verticle line) character. This is the same character that is above the back slash character . I searched the internet and people were suggesting reloading drivers and apparently Gateway was suggesting a destructive reload of the hard drive. That's absolutely rediculous.
After some research, I determined that on some European style keyboards, the backslash/pipe key is between the left shift and the "Z" key. So, I removed the left shift key to experiment. The key simply pops off by sticking a screwdriver under it. (It is not necessary for you to do this).

When I used a little screwdriver to press on the center of the plastic (red arrow) I would get a proper shift key. However, when I pressed to the right (green arrow), I would get the backslash character. If I pushed at the red and green arrow together, I would get the pipe character.

Ah-hah! I determined the problem. The inside of the keyboard is a "universal" type and can be used with U.S. or Europeon keyboard layouts. For whatever reason, the left shift key was hitting both dots under the key. (The dots are visible in the pictures below.)
To resolve the problem, it is necessary to disassemble the keyboard. On the bottom of the keyboard is a bunch of screws. Remove all of the screws. If you have any rubber feet, there is probably screws under the rubber feet. The feet are just held on by sticky taope, so they peel right off.

Once all of the screws are removed the top and bottom halves seperate easily. The circuits stay in the bottom half of the keyboard, so set the top half of the keyboard to the side. The red arrow marks where the left shift key presses down.

Pull back the top layer and you will see the flexible circuits. These are also made up of multiple layers. When a key is pressed it pushes these layers together to complete the switch circuit. The red arrow marks the shift key. The green arrow marks the backslahs/pipe key for European style keyboards. The blue arrow is yet another key that is not used on U.S. keyboards.

Pull back the first layer of the switch circuit to expose the space between the circuit layers.

Place a small piece of electrical tape on the extra backslash/pipe circuit connection as marked by the red arrow.

Now simply reassemble the keyboard and that weird pipe character will never accidentally show up again.
