M and O key generate wrong character keyboard or keyboard encoder? Characters generated 0 and 6


This is usually caused by the FN LOCK key being stuck. You probably also have the U, I, J and K keys behaving funny and believing they're a numeric keypad.

Try clicking two or three times both shift, the FN key, NumLock key and, just in case, the Ctrl key. Also try pressing Alt-O and Alt-M or Fn-O or Fn-Alt-O and see if that gets you back the "O" key.

If only the M and O keys behave this way, though, it looks more like a keyboard driver problem; reinstalling the driver (or selecting a different keyboard, such as French one, and then back the normal keyboard again) might fix it.

How do I get rid of "FN" on my notification taskbar;which key does it refer to? Does it have something to do with the keypad?


FN is the function button usually relating to the blue characters on the keyboard. It is used like the shift key when wanting to use the secondary character on the keys.

Blue characters on the keyboard when I type


It is a combination of key known as "Function" (Fn, for short). You have to press it and hold while pressing other keys showing the blue letters on it. The most common use is to make a virtual Numerical Keypad on laptops, so you can perform calculations. To be back to normal mode, you need to press FN+F8 (or the key with the Calculator icon).

I cannot sign onto my computer.


If you note which keys type double characters you can use the backspace key to backup one character as a work around, but it sounds like you may need to replace it. If it is wireless, try new batteries first and also try another keyboard if you can borrow one.

Keyboard Typing Several Characters


Hello,
There could be a couple of options here: 1. The keypad is defective in which case you need to replace it. 2. The keys are sticking which will cause this problem and is quit frequently what happens (unless all your keys are doing this in which case it will not be the problem as not all keys stick at the same time unless something has been spilled on the keyboard) 3. You might need to update the drivers for the keypad which you can download from the manufacturer's website. I do not think you have a virus because you would notice other things happening to your operating system or hardware. Since you plugged the usb keyboard in and it worked just fine, I think your keypad needs replaced, which you can order from the manufacturer as well and they are not that expensive. You can try downloading the drivers first and see it that corrects the problem or try removing your laptop face plate and cleaning your keypad, just be careful with the plastic tabs that hold the face plate on and not break them. I am pretty sure your keypad is bad. Please let me know if this helps or you need further assistance.

If you would not mind rating my help, I would really appreciate it. Thanks
