My laptop is entering more than one character at a time when typing in my password for example its adding additional letters how can i turn this off


seems like something is ring with the keyboard, try an external keyboard, if the issue is still the same this will be a windows issue, once in windows tap on the shift key 5 times this will either deactivate sticky keys or ask you to activate sticky keys.
If it is not a sticky key setting issue then the problem most likely will be Hardware, did any liquid spill on your keyboard previously causing the key to malfunction causing the key to type extra characters?
If none then possible this is a faulty keyboard on the machine.

Hi,

Follow these steps carefully:

Go to START->RUN and type REGEDIT. This will open the registry editor.

Find the following registry key:

Neither of the shift work correctly therefore


Your keyboard is shorted. Your computer needs a new keyboard.

The letter L key is not working


You have a faulty keyboard. Need to change the whole keyboard since you cannot change just only one letter key.

Note: If machine is under warranty no need to pay for the repairs.

How do I use NumLoc on lenovo t-60? No keys for it?


If you hold down the Fn (function key) and hit one of the NumLock keys, this will type those NumLock characters usually printed in blue on the keytop). Also this is different on virtually every laptop, but one key should say NumLock or have a picture of a lock on it in blue. This is the NumLock and it is toggled by holding the Fn key and that key.
