Presario C700 keyboard problem

It seems that my nyumlock is stuck since many of the keystrokes are for the shifted keys, however, I have other keys that when hit are not even close to the keystroke. I am under the impression that this is a softweare problem in the Bios, however I a not sure. HP has an biios update of ver.F7, anybody think that would work?

Hello Dan-0,

The problem probably does not rely on the BIOS, if anything your operating system may have detected the wrong keyboard. Can you give me an example of what keys exactly are coming out funny.. for instance when you press L does it show up 7 or @ or a character in a different language?

What operating system are you using? Windows/Linux, XP,Vista?

Regards,

-Chester

Hello Chester, Thank you for your response. It's kinda funny, after calling a few tech places It turns out that my numlock was on.

The funny part is I told the first place It seem's like it was on, but that's where I got yhe idea it was a bios problem. Go figure.

The next itme my car won't start, I think I'll check the gas first.

Thank you and happy new year!!

Pressing shift key for @.Getting" instead.


includes what are known as "accessibility options" that are designed to make the computer more usable by people with various physical challenges. (Prior Windows versions include similar functionality but I'll focus on the XP specifics here.) Several of those options relate to the keyboard and are fairly easily enabled. Let's say you're frustrated with your work and start pounding on the shift key (or as was my case alternately pounding on both shift keys). If Windows sees the shift key pressed five times in a row it assumes you're asking for a feature called "Sticky Keys". This feature makes the Shift, Alt, Ctrl and Windows keys toggle instead of needing to be held down. Windows does throw up a confirmation dialog, but that's easy to miss if you're still pounding your keys and happen to hit Return.
"No, Windows isn't getting even with you though it might seem that way." Maybe you're not that violent. Perhaps you're just lost in thought as your finger slowly descends on the Shift key. 8 seconds later Windows thinks you've asked for something called "Filter Keys" which is a way to ignore brief keystrokes or repeated keystrokes. If it's the Num Lock key you've held down for 5 seconds, Windows will ask you about something called "Toggle Keys" which beeps a tone whenever you press Caps Lock, Scroll Lock or Num Lock.
To be fair, Windows does try to ask before turning on one of these features, but if you hit Return by mistake and the feature gets turned on, it can be frustrating to try and continue to get work done if you didn't realize what happened. And that of course can lead to more keyboard pounding.
The good news is that they're easy to turn off and it's also easy to turn off the detection that got you into trouble in the first place. If your keyboard is in one of these strange states, I suggest using the mouse and selecting: Start -> Settings -> Control Panel -> Accessibility Options. The default panel that comes up will in fact be for the keyboard options. There you can turn off whatever happened to have been turned on. While you're there for each of the three options, press Settings, and uncheck Use Shortcut. Now Windows will no longer misinterpret your random keystrokes.

Please give me good feed back i am not getting paid

Keyboard


one of 3 things seems likely: 1) you have a key on your motherboard that is stuck. tap the heck out of your Fn key, as well as all your Ctrl, Alt, and Shift keys. 2) your computer (operating system) has switched keyboard modes from standard western world american english setting to some other style. See if you can use your mouse to checkout keyboard settings in the control panel. 3) your keyboard is toast. hit dell/ebay for a replacement keyboard (the cheapest part of a laptop).

Left shift + T, right shift + E doesn't work on an hiper keyboard


Your shift key is broken, if this product was recently purchased, return it for another. If you've had it for a while and it just decided to stop working, your best bet would be to pry the Left Shift key off and clean around that area and properly attach the key back on - its possible it wasn't hitting the sensor when it was pushed down.

If this does not fix your problem please leave a comment and I will assist you further.

F1 key popped off my Presario C700 keyboard! Is there a way for me to pop it back on?


Most likely yes, most keys on keyboards can be popped back into place by seating the key directly above the housing and pressing downward until it clicks. If any other parts besides the key were loosened or flew out like a wire clip or plastic housing, then it won't seat or click into place.
