    The exact same thing happened to me after I spilled some water on my keyboard. Assumedly it got into the contacts. I'm letting it dry out now, hopefully that'll fix it - if not, then I guess I'm gonna have to use another keyboard.

Hi wa33ban2hart

Question: "Some letters on my keyboard result in the wrong character. This problem showed up weeks after purchase. Initially it was working fine".

You've done unbelievably well to type an error-free, letter-perfect question, despite the character confusion.

This is a very strange problem to have on a desktop keyboard (Dynex Keyboard and Mouse), since the way to achieve the above sentence as you have written it, is to use the Fn and NumLk keys, on a laptop keyboard, to enable buttons with multiple functions to print their alternative characters designated to them.

Desktop keyboards do not usually have Fn keys and the NumLk key on a desktop keyboard locks and unlocks the Number Pad on the right of the keyboard, which usually has no alternative letter values on its keys.

Solution: Press and hold the Fn (Function) key on your keyboard > press the NumLk (Number Lock) key (usually F10, F11 or F12) > release both keys > test keys J, K, L, U, I, O etc. again.

That should resolve your problem.

I hope this helps.

My key board and mouse are typing wrong letters and mouse is selecting and opening every folders when clicking to open. laptop brand Fujitsu Seimens


Please check with external usb keyboard and mouse.
If external is working fine.. then there is probelm
with mouse clicking multiple times when you click one time.
For keyborad, you are not given any more information regarding what is the character displaying when which key is pressed. Try to check with numlock, and other functional keys.

if external also not working, check with local laptop repair center.

Please rate me if solution solved.

Examine your keyboard for any build-up of dust, dirt, liquids or other particles that could be causing the keys to type the wrong characters. Allow any loose dirt to fall out by inverting and shaking the keyboard lightly.
Confirm that your keyboard is set to the English language. Go to your control panel and click on the "Regional and Language Options" icon. If the setting appears to be in a foreign language, change it to English/U.S.
Check if your number lock key is on. If so, depress the key to disengage it.
Run a character key test by using the Microsoft Keyboard Diagnostics (MSKEY) program. While in the MSKEY program, hit several keys to make certain that they are the same keys that are identified in the MSKEY window. To start MSKEY in Windows Vista, select "All Programs>>Accessories>>Run" from the Start menu. Type "mskey" in the box and depress the "OK" button. Start MSKEY In Windows XP by clicking on "Run" from the Start menu. Type "mskey" in the Open box, then hit "OK." Depress either "PS/2" or "USB" to apply it to your type of keyboard hookup. MSKEY software is only available with Microsoft IntelliType version 1.1 or later.
Remember to clean your keyboard regularly to keep it free of dust and debris.
Don't disassemble the keyboard because it may affect the validity of your manufacturer warranty!

How to use accents when writing in Spanish in a Dell Precision m4500 laptop?


On Windows XP
  1. Log On
  2. Click the Start button
  3. Click on Control Panel
  4. Click Regional and Language Options - a new window will pop up
  5. Click the Languages tab
  6. Click on the Details button
  7. Click the Add button - a new window will pop up
  8. Select United States-International (keyboard layout menu)
  9. Click OK
  10. Click Apply
  11. Read the instructions for "Using the U.S. - International Keyboard" below.
Note: You will now have a keyboard icon on the taskbar (usually on the right side). To switch between keyboard layouts click the keyboard icon on the task bar and choose which layout you want to use. Changing the keyboard layout will only affect the log on profile used. No other users will be affected.

Windows Vista
  1. Start-->Control Panel-->Clock, Language, Region-->Change Keyboards
  2. New Window: Click the Change Keyboards button
  3. New Window: Click the Add button
  4. Select United States-International keyboard
  5. Click OK
  6. From drop down menu (Default Input Language) select United States International
Using the U.S. - International Keyboard If you followed the above directions carefully, your keyboard will now react slightly differently than it did before. First of all, notice that if you strike the single apostrophe (') key, nothing happens. To type the single apostrophe now, you must strike the single apostrophe key and then strike the space bar. When you strike the spacebar, the apostrophe will appear.
The next thing to note is that the quotes (") key behaves the same way as the apostrophe key. You must first strike the quotes key and then strike the space bar in order to create the (") symbol. These two minor inconveniences are more than made up for by the ease with which you can now type the special characters.
To type the special characters, two keystrokes are required. To type the ?, you need only strike the apostrophe key and then the letter a. The other characters are just as easy:
  • ? = ' + a
  • ? = ' + e
  • ? = ' + i
  • ? = ' + o
  • ? = ' + u
  • ? = ~ + n
  • ? = " + u
To type the special punctuation characters, you need to hold down on the Alt key while you strike the appropriate punctuation mark. On some keyboards, only one of the two Alt keys will work for this.
  • ¡ = Alt (hold down) + !
  • ¿ = Alt (hold down) + ?
Using Cryptic Codes If, for some reason, you don't want to change your keyboard, you can always type in the troublesome cryptic codes. Using this arcane system, the following codes apply:
  • ? = Alt + 0225
  • ? = Alt + 0233
  • ? = Alt + 0237
  • ? = Alt + 0243
  • ? = Alt + 0250
  • ? = Alt + 0241
  • ? = Alt + 0252
  • ¡ = Alt + 0161
  • ¿ Alt + 0191
When using this utterly out-dated system, there are two important things to remember. First, when you type in the numbers, some keyboards require that you use the "numeric keypad" located to the side, rather than the numbers along the top. Second, on some keyboards, only one of the two Alt keys will work for this.

My toshiba laptop is typing wrong characters but my wireless tevion keyboard is o k. Is there a solution to this ?


Sounds like the laptop keyboard went bad and thats why its typing wrong characters. Best way to verify this is to use a USB keyboard on the laptop, if the USB keyboard is typing the correct keys then you know the laptop keyboard is bad. If the USB keyboard is typing the wrong keys as well then you know its a setting in windows that is causing the keys to type wrong characters.
