Multiple keyboard keys don't work mainly g h and backspace

For some strange reason g h backspace and a few of the f keys dont acknowledge on my laptop keyboard. The keys don't seem to be physically broken and I doubt its a software issue due to trying multiple operating systems. I just hope that there is a simple problem with the keyboard which doesn't involve replacing it.

Due to the spread of keys involved, I would say that you have a bad keyboard and that it does need to be replaced. If it was just a certain type of key that was acting funny - it may have been a setting (such as F-Lock). Since it's all over the place, I think it has been damaged in one way or another.

When using my laptop it behave like any body has press backspace key I wont stop this problem,again I am pushing backspace key with my other hand it functioning properly,if I remove hand from backspace...


Hi dipannvora,

This could happen when they keyboard setting is malfunctioning or there is a possible virus which is the reason behind this misbehavior.

I would suggest you start the PC in safe mode and then check if it works fine , if it does , then the problem could be with a virus , else you need to get your laptop's keyboard serviced and the problem would be solved.

My backspace key does not work.my laptop is Dell Inspiron 640m. Thank you.


Your backspace does not work.... well could be many reasons, but if its the key itself, you can replace just the dell laptop key, if you spilled something then you will need a new keyboard, we really need more info. Good luck!

Keys are not functioning!!!


You may need to install a new keyboard, what you do is try hooking up a external usb keyboard if that works then yeah your going to need a new keyboard. You can get these for $25 bucks from ebay. Now if the external does not work for some strange reason then you might have a further issue that is complex.

Let me know ether way.

please do leave some feedback and ratings for your free answer today.

I have a Panasonic Toughbook CF-18. The keyboard


Connect an external keyboard to your laptop. If the external keyboard works properly that means the keyboard of your laptop is defective and you have to replace it. If you get the same problem with the external keyboard reinstall your operating system (it could be a virus).
