Hi,

the ribben cable which connects the keyboard to the motherboard is loose. The repair is simple, but not for the inexperienced.

Fame !

Cursor jumping around while typing text


You wouldn't have some live insect in your keyboard have you? I've seen Microwaves do strange stuff when infested with some tiny insects BUT I doubt it's the case with your machine. I am trying to recall a Keyboard key that I sometimes accidentally press when trying to create a document using Word, etc which does the same or similar to what you've described. It pees me of as I don't know which button I hit, it is one of the main reasons I avoid Word, Outlook, etc. Please let us know if solved, cheers.

Problem with spacebar key


I don't quite understand why this would happen after pluggin in a USB mouse - but I've seen it numerous times after a liquid has been spilled on a keyboard.

Sounds like you need to replace the keyboard. Best way to test this is to plug in an external usb keyboard and see if you can type normally on it.

If the laptop keyboard exhibits this behavior, and the external keyboard doesn't - you should replace the laptop keyboard.

On this keyboard, try toggling numlock scrolllock and capslock a few times. does it help?

I think your numlock might be stuck on and your keyboard "num lock" key isnt working

Laptop keyboard issues


Is this a laptop? Some laptops will allow you to use these keys as the number pad/arrow pad as well in a certain mode. You will likely be able to turn off with a combination of the FN key plus one of keys F1-F12 (the function key will perform the action shown as a symbol on these keys).

If none of the symbols seems to indicate this mode. Try each combination and test to see which combination sets your keyboard mode back to normal.
