When you hook an external keyboard to it, does it type normally? I am guessing it probably does but you need to test that first. Find a USB keyboard, hook it to it, wait for it to start working and check it out.

If the external keyboard types normally as I think it will then you probably need a new keyboard. If however your computer was damaged by moisture or unnatural compression to the keyboard, a new keyboard may not fix it. Moisture damage or compression damage to the computer can be permanent, but my first guess is a keyboard would do the trick.

Taking the keyboard off a Lenovo (less than 4 years old) is very easy. There about 4 or 5 screws on the bottom that need removed and the wrist rest (which pops out) then they keyboard comes out pretty easy.

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.

On the computer keyboard by nextech is there suppose to be keyboard lights and if so how are they turned on


Hi
The usual lights for a keyoard are the 3 above the number pad. they will be labelled to correspond with the following keys:
- CAPS Lock
- NUMBER Lock
- SCROLL Lock
When they are pressed once the light will go on, meaning that function key is active. So if the CAPS Lock key was pressed and the light is on, then any letter key (A to Z) you press appear as a capital in documents. Press CAPS Lock again and the light goes out and the letter will type lower case.
The NUMBER LOCK is for the keypad to the right (not the number across the top and above the letters). This function ensures the numbers will appear instead of their alternate function, such cursor and Page UP/down, Home, and End.
SCROLL Lock is not used much, but it can be used in Excel to hold the current selection. For example, you want scroll about the sheet using the cursor keys, but want to keep the current cell selected. So with SROLL lock active, when you use the cursor key's, the sheet will move in the direction you want while leaving the selected cell selected. Try it and you'll see what I mean.
I hope this helps.

This may be a software or driver conflict. Look for out-of-date apps. Look for version numbers of all apps, games, utilities. Belarc (free at belarc.com) is a simple tool to gather all the version information on your computer. Confirm that each program's "system requirements" list your current OS level by visiting the software manufacturer's site and checking for your specific software or driver version. Either remove or update any that are not specifically compatible.
