Re: pressed key repeat

I have had the same problem for ever. I have found that unplugging the USB dongle, waiting 10+ seconds and than plugging it back in tends to fix it right away.

After a few weeks you might have to do it again. Annoying problem but a simple fix.

I have tried the whole shaking it and taking it apart and cleaning it but that never seemed to work and in some cases made the problem worse. The only thing that fixes it for me is unplugging it and plugging it back in. Hope this helps!

Re: pressed key repeat

It seems the world has this problem...hmm.....okay, here's step 1. Take the keyboard, turn it upside down and with vigor...smack it on your desk (on the edge of the keyboard). If you see crumbs and other debris on the desk subsequently do it twice more....(no it won't hurt the keyboard...just use some common sense). If that fails you can take the keyboard apart and clean the keys and film with a soft, moistened with alcohol, cloth. A can of compressed air, and a blow out of the keyboard once a week will also help....but banging it will still be necessary once in a while.

I held the shift key down longer than normal and now am unable to type double letters, backspace, or use arrows.

Restart your computer to turn off the "Sticky Keys" accessibility tool.

Use "sticky keys" if you have limited finger dexterity capability or limited motor skills.
For example, you can press CTRL and then ALT and then DELETE,
rather than having to press all THREE keys at the same time.

My backspace only deletes one leter at a time

of course your backspace button only deletes one letter unless you press the backspace button for a long time and it still deletes one letter. There is something wrong with your keyboard.

Can't type double letters can't backspace more

Push the shift key down until it beeps and it should unlock the keyboard and allow you to type normally.

I have an HP Pavillion ze5300 laptop, and most of the time (15 out of every 20 minutes about) the "]" key keeps repeating. Sometime I can type if I am pressing the backspace key the entire time, but that...

It sounds like you need to replace the keyboard. Replacing the keyboard is not difficult or you can take it to a repair center. Parts can be ordered online from HP or aftermarket vendors.

Backspace doesnt work

in all likelihood your shift key is stuck. try pressing and releasing both shift keys in an attempt to "free" them. Also, check to ensure that "sticky keys" is not enabled on your computer(pressing and holding the shift key for about 10 seconds should pop up a window if it is. if the window appears, just make sure that the key is not "stuck" by windows).

Solution: mechanical agitation for your shift keys to attempt to free them, and a good thorough cleaning for all of your keyboard with canned air and/or a lint free cloth damp with dilluted isoprophyl alchohol to prevent this from happening in the future with these or other keys. Alternately, replace your keyboard.
