More than likely you have had something spilled into your keyboard and a full press is causing the stickyness to make a full connection with the above key. you have 2 options

1.> Just locate a local computer shop and ask for a used keyboard, shoudl be no more than 5$

2. If you choose this step it is important for you to follow it exactly..
Wash the keyboard in hot water in the bathtub.
Fill the bathtub with hot water so that you can immerse the keyboard in it fully and then shake vigorously for 30 seconds to 1 min

Take keyboard out of water and allow to drain. then shake again to help remove extra water.

Let dry for 48 hours minimum upside down.

Plug back in - all should be fixed, if not revert to solution 1

How to type backslash key?


on a standard keyboard should be key under backspace key

May 19, 2015 | Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Backslash key


On most standard English keyboards the backslash key is located above the "Enter" or "Return" key. If your keyboard has been damaged, you can still copy and paste a backslash symbol that someone else has typed.

\ (backslash)
/ (forward slash)

the keyboards are set up on international standards and it is not usual to be able to configure a separate key for some other symbol

Dam that backslash


The \ key appears to be stuck. The keyboard is about $20 part and can be purchased on EBay with ease. Takes bout 15 minutes for a novice to install. The keyboard may resolve the touchpad issue too.
If the touchpad is still erratic after the keyboard is replaced, Flash the BIOS to latest version available and see if any change. If not the palmrest assembly will need to be replaced (About an hour job) or use an external mouse

Dam that backslash


Definitely sounds like a stuck key.

Assuming the system is a portable, you can try this for troubleshooting. Connect an External keyboard and disconnect the cable for the internal one, see if the issue stops. If it does, the innternal keyboard is bad and needs to be replaced

Cannot get backslash (\) character to display


To get a backslash, you need to print the upper ascii character 92 (decimal). On most machines you can get upper ascii characters by holding down the Alt key and typing the decimal value on the numeric keypad. On the little IBM machine I'm typing this on, there is no numeric keypad, but if I switch on numlock (by doing shift-scroll-lock) the j-k-l keys become 1-2-3 etc. Now id I hold down Alt and type 92 (i.e.keys 9-k), this is what I get: \ Howzzat?.
