    Oh ok great thank you. I thought I had said it was the standard Dell keyboard that came with desk tops, sorry about that. I should probably invest in a better one. Thank you!

You have not described the keyboard.
If it is a wireless keyboard, you may be operating at the limit of the range. Typically, the range is 6 ft. for 900 Mhz keyboards, somewhat longer for bluetooth.
The batteries in the wireless keyboard may be low.
If it is a USB keyboard, it may be drawing too much current from the USB port if it has "bells and whistles". A powered USB hub would cure that problem.
If your answer is "none of the above", I would recommend buying a basic keyboard replacement for $10 to $20.

If you have the gadget sidebar turned on, turn it off and try. This worked for me.

    I found yet another way to fix this problem. Turning off my sidebar only seemed to help on what I was doing at the time. I was running Internet Explorer 7 and I only had problems when I was on the internet. I re-installed IE7, then upgraded to IE8 and everything works like a charm. You can get instructions on how to do that from Microsoft.

Some of the keys are not functioning properly they are typing numbers instead of letters and the space bar is also typing a number? Please help!!


There is probably a function button on your keyboard. Pressing that button should fix the problem. It might be labeled Fn. (Look near the bottom left of the keyboard.) Best Wishes!

Well it could be several things, not the least of things is radiated electrical noise. Seriously, I had several customers get hit with this problem. One test was to hold your hands just over the keyboard. If random characters appear, you sitting within the radius of a strong transformer.

Look around the area you are in, do you see any type of antenna nearby? If you do, rotate your lap top 90 degrees.

Also, the keyboard may be starting to fail. From your description I would suspect that the scan code for the key you pressed is not getting reported back to the CPU properly.

Replacing the keyboard on a Satellite is fairly straight forward. The replacement part from Toshiba only cost $35. and that included shipping.

How to use the space bar when typing on screen keyboard?


If you are typing with the mouse, just click the space once to give one space after a word or after a letter. There's no other method or no other way to give space without using the space bar of the onscreen keyboard.

Hp pavilion dv1000 laptop pc keyboard not working properly.


Does this computer KB work alright in SAFE mode? If it does then drivers and/or viruses are the problem. If it doesn't work in SAFE mode then it could be drivers and or keyboard. Now try booting into BIOS. At the date prompt you usually can type any keyboard letter. If the keyboard works here, then you definately have driver/virus issues. If not replace the keyboard.

Hp dv8000 keybpoard problem


Hello! am Fabian,
problem.
every time i press a letter another letter shows up the space bar ...

solution.
first, be show to check if any other key is down, if not, dust your keyboard/pad to make sure the keys are free. if you problem remains, its likely your keyboard may be moist. you have to dry it by opening/ exposing it internal circuitry's to a dry air for some hours then close it up and test. if this did not work, it means you will need to replace your keyboard/pad.

when drying do not expose to direct sun light. if you have to replace the keyboard/pad buy an exart from your system manufacturer if you can.

i hope this information will be helpful.
Thanks.

You need to go to Start -> Settings -> Control Panel & find the "regional & language settings". Set the country and related settings to wherever you are (as you're currently using a foreign setting).
