Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

My keyboard is glitchy.

Right now I'm using an external keyboard to type this, but my laptop's keyboard is acting strangely. Whenever I press the A key the CAPS lock will turn on and vice versa. Whenever I press the C key it will put in CD instead of only C. Most of my keys are like this, and some of them don't work altogether. This began happenening last night as I was cleaning it due to some spilled water. I still had the computer on as I was cleaning it, and I've been searching for an answer. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If you don't want to buy a new keyboard, you can open your keyboard and leave it to dry for a couple of days. There's still some moisture in the keyboard that's why this is happening. As soon as all moisture has been removed from the keyboard, it should work fine. But there's no guarantee since the board might have short circuited already.

I have an hp laptop. when typing a message it gose wild mixes up letters. and worsloks This is an example. I can type resonablely fast but my computer will not allow me


Sounds like the keyboard chip on the motherboard is failing. To determine this, connect a USB external keyboard up and see if you can type as fast as you normally do and it doesn't act the same as the original keyboard. If it fixes the problem, you can either have the laptop repaired by HP or just use the external keyboard. You can do the test with an external wireless keyboard too

I think you'll find that the NumLock was left on when you disconnected the external keyboard, and numbers (shown on the laptop keys in blue on the right side of the keyboard) are in use instead of the normal characters. Just press the NumLock key, usually near the top right of the keyboard.

It's an internal problem. If ocurring after messing with the keyboard the solution is to turn off the asus, unplug the battery, plug it again and turn on. It happens in both 700 and 900 models.
