Question about Acer Computers & Internet
I'm having problems with my laptop keyboard.
I've lost multiple keys on this keyboard. The d key is one of them. Lately my d key has had a mind of its own and is randomly pressing down. Sometimes when I'm away from my computer, I'll see a line of d's several lines long in my IM window's. Right now I have to use my on screen keyboard just to get to respond or type anything.
But the question is...Is there anyway to disable this key so it doesn't bother me or is there anyway I can prevent it from doing this? Please if anyone can help, I would appreciate it :).
Need to change the keyboard of your laptop. It's usaly very simple in less then 2 minutes. need some very small screwdriver ( check under the laptop the screw with the keyboard sign). You will need to buy a new (or used) keyboard from a computer store or directly from your laptop factory, witch I prefer. When getting the new one, unscrew the those screw under the laptop. Turn the laptop and open the screen up so you see the keyboard. Don't start the laptop.
Laptop are different, but when screw are out, you should manage to pull out the keyboard.
Some times you have (on HP's) 4 slides that push the keyboard down. Slide them outside with a small flat screwdriver. And gently took the keyboard up with your fingers. Now VERY carefuly, look at the back of the keyboard, you should see a cable connected to the mother board or so. Gently pull it out... check if some pins block it if it's not comming out easy. Do this carefuly, it is the only tricky part, you don't want to brake the connectors. Put the new keyboard in the opposite steps. Rescrew it and start the laptop tadada.

Question: "Some letters on my keyboard result in the wrong character. This problem showed up weeks after purchase. Initially it was working fine".
You've done unbelievably well to type an error-free, letter-perfect question, despite the character confusion.
This is a very strange problem to have on a desktop keyboard (Dynex Keyboard and Mouse), since the way to achieve the above sentence as you have written it, is to use the Fn and NumLk keys, on a laptop keyboard, to enable buttons with multiple functions to print their alternative characters designated to them.
Desktop keyboards do not usually have Fn keys and the NumLk key on a desktop keyboard locks and unlocks the Number Pad on the right of the keyboard, which usually has no alternative letter values on its keys.
Solution: Press and hold the Fn (Function) key on your keyboard > press the NumLk (Number Lock) key (usually F10, F11 or F12) > release both keys > test keys J, K, L, U, I, O etc. again.
That should resolve your problem.
I hope this helps.
