Sounds like the keyboard is on it's way out. When you hit the certain letters you refer to does another letter appear, or does no letter appear? You may want to try to hook that keyboard to another computer and see if the problem persists. Keyboards will eventually wear out.

Hi,

Verify that the key is not working in more than one application. It is possible that some keys may not be used in all programs. This generally always applies to the Function keys F1 through F12. If not all keys are working in all programs and you have Windows, attempt to boot the computer to a MS-DOS prompt or Safe Mode and test the keyboard in DOS.

If it appears that a substance has been spilt into the computer.

If any type of liquid has been spilt within the keyboard you can attempt to clean it . however, because of the dramatic decrease of cost with computer keyboards, it is recommended that you simply replace the keyboard to help prevent frustration and possibility of failure again in the future.

Thanks,
CF

I typed in the key but it did not work.


Some characters can easily be mistaken to another character. Please check:
  • The letter B and the number eight (8)
  • The letter O and the number zero (0)
  • The letter Q and the number zero (0)
  • The letters VV and the letter W
2007 Microsoft Office product keys also do not contain certain characters such as 0, 1, A, and E.

Keyboard typing multiple letters/ numbers when pressing certain keys.


Keyboards on Windows computers can repeat letters when key press sensitivity is too high. This problem can be rectified by adjusting your keyboard's repeat frequency. Once this is lowered, key presses will occur slower and you will not have the letters repeated instantly.

Click"Start," then "Control Panel." Click "Hardware and Sound," followed by "Keyboard." Move the "Repeat delay" slider further to the left below the "Character repeat" option. The further left the slider moves, the longer the delay will be before a character repeats.

How to troubleshoot hp G56 keyboard when different letters appear when typing a certain letter for example when typing letter s letter w will also appear and so on and so forth


1. Do a BIOS memory test, to check your notebook memory.
2. If OK, make a system backup of your current installation on an external medium.
(just in case you want it back later)
3. Recover the factory setup installation and check the keyboard if it is working OK.
4. If not, the mainboard of the notebook is probably faulty.

How to make use of the keys


Well it is rather easy but it does take some practice, some people prefer to adopt a method whereby they assign certain fingers for certain keys, this is done mostly for quick typing. However it does not matter how you type so long as it is comfortable for you. After a short whole you will find it quite exciting. The shift key found on the bottom left hand side of the keyboard is to do Capital letters and the CAPS key is to do THIS ALL CAPITAL LETTERS. The space bar is to make a space between words, just like a type-writer.

Don't worry, you will learn in good time.

Is the number in the upper right corner a different color? There might be a key you can press that changes those letters from the letter on the key to the number on the key.
