Problems with keyboard/touchpad

I have a 900 HA and the keyboard is typing the wrong characters (example: when I press "o", the number "6" is produced on screen). Additionally, the left mouse button below the touchpad is excessively difficult to push. The keyboard is an easy replacement (i think), but I can't even seem to find out where to go with the touchpad issue...any ideas?

Here what you need to do, disable your keyboard/touchpad because its grounded and soon will not usable anymore... due to this problem, you can use USB keyboard but if you can find the same replacement on it... buy it. Good luck!

What is wrong with my laptop? It is as if the shift key is stuck


Go into device manager in windows and delete it and reboot. If it comes back when it detects the keyboard and it works then it was a driver, if it does detect it or it wont work correctly then it is a bad keyboard. You can also try a plug in keyboard to see how it behaves, ps keyboards are not that expensive.

Has anyone spilled any liquid onto the keyboard?
This is a common indicator as to why the keyboard gives wrong character inputs.
If this is the problem, the keyboard will need replacing

If this is not the case try pressing the FN and NUMlock keys together

Some keys register different characters. For example the O registers the number 6 when it is typed.


This should be a simple fix, look at your keyboard, you should have a function key and if you look at the number pads above the top row of letters there should be either a numerical symbol or a key pad, your keyb board is simply using several keys as an extended numerical keypad. If you look closely at the letters there are small numbers on them. To fix hold down function key and pressing the keypad button. You can also try pressing the number lock.

Some of the keys on my keyboard are producing wrong symbols not all of them mostly tge right hand side of the keyboard for example when i press the letter 'o' it produces /6 and the p produces -* how do i...


this means that your number lock is turned on.

there is a Fn key on the board. hold that and look for the number lock key and press it. each system is different so it will be either NumLk, NumLock, or a 1 with a lock symbol. Acer generally places this on a F key many times F7.

Inspiron 1545 keyboard problem


This is going to sound really weird but I found a fix. I've got a Dell studio XPS laptop and was getting annoyed by the same phenomenon. I discovered the problem was more common when my thumbs were close to/touching the touchpad. I cranked down the sensitivity of my touchpad and things got a lot better. Probably works for many different kinds of laptops.

For my machin - Steps to fix:
Mouse Control Panel: Dell Touchpad Tab: Click to change Dell Touchpad Settings: Touchpad Settings: Touchpad Sensitivity: Move it from near "Light Touch" to the middle.

I hope this helps someone. :-)

The keyboard characters does not correspond to what appears on sc


Does it type " by any chance when you press the @ key? if so this is usually because keyboard input is set to the wrong language in the regional & language settings are wrong in the control panel. try pressing the left alt key & shift at same time first this is a quick key to change between input languages.

Problem with keyboard or input of certain keys


hi.. is that a bi-lingual keyboard that you purchased? If so, what model? If that's a toshiba laptop w/ a bi-lingual keyboard, press the left (shift+ctrl) buttons for 10-15secs then release it. You should be able to bring back the normal function of your keyboard. If your having problems pressing the "n" key and it replaces it with a number on the screen when you type it, it's most likely that you enabled the "num lock" function of your keyboard, on Toshiba press FN+F11, on Dell FN+F11 also i think, it may differ on other models, sometimes FN+ Print Screen or Pause (above F11).

Hope this helps.

The text dictionary keeps giving me the wrong words and i cant change, how do you knock it off. the phones a samsung d900i


Using T9 mode
T9 is a predictive text input mode that allows you to
key in any character using single keystrokes.
Entering a word in T9 mode
1. Press [2] to [9] to start entering a word. Press
each key once for each letter.
For example, press [4], [3], [5], [5], and [6] to
enter HELLO in T9 mode.
T9 predicts the word that you are typing, and it
may change with each key that you press.
2. Enter the whole word before editing or deleting
characters.
3. When the word displays correctly, go to step 4.
Otherwise, press [0] to display alternative word
choices for the keys that you have pressed.
For example, OF and ME use [6] and [3].
4. Press [ ] to insert a space and enter the next
word.
Other T9 mode operations
• Press [1] to enter periods or apostrophes
automatically.
• Press [ ] to change case. Lower case (No
indicator), Initial capital ( ), and Capital lock ( )
are available.
• Press [ ] to insert a space.
• Press the Navigation keys to move the cursor.
• Press [C] to delete characters one by one. Press
and hold [C] to clear the display.
Adding a new word to the T9 dictionary
This feature may not be available for some languages.
1. Enter the word that you want to add.
2. Press [0] to display alternative words for your key
presses. When there are no more alternative
words, Spell displays on the bottom line.
3. Press <Spell>.
4. Enter the word you want using ABC mode and
press <OK>.
