Your keyboard could be going bad.
One thing to try is go into the device manager and uninstall the keyboard and let the computer find it again on restart.

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.

Hi

Try system restore. Go to START>ACCESSORIES>SYSTEM TOOLS>SYSTEM RESTORE>CHOOSE PREVIOUS RESTORE DATES. Use other restore dates if needed.

Or try this

If your laptop keyboard types wrong characters, it is rather a software issue than an hardware one. This can happen if you accidentally press certain keys on your keyboard, which enable a certain kind of function.
Try the following steps in case your laptop keyboard displays wrong characters:
1.Go to the control panel option
Click ? 'Regional and Language Services' ? 'Languages' ? 'Details' ? 'Key Settings'
2.Select the option 'Switch Between Input Languages' and click on 'Change Key Sequence'
3.Ensure that all the check boxes are unchecked in this window and do the same for 'Switch to...(Keyboard Type)'
4.Click ?
'Ok' ? 'Ok' ? 'Apply' ? 'Ok'.
This should solve your problem

Keys are not matching up . When i type certain letters, it displays numbers. Example. press k, and displays 2. Must hold funtion key to get correct letter.


Your number lock is on. Look for a small picture that looks like a calculator on your keyboard keys (possibly on one of the F keys at the top). Press the Fn key plus the key with the calculator pic to turn number lock off.

Your windows key (the one with the flag) appears to be blocked. Try pressing them both (or 1, if you only have 1) once, see if the keys work again. If not, try taking the keys off the keyboard (just put somthing under them and pull) and put them bac on. If that doesn't help either, you will have to have your keyboard replaced.

WHEN YOU TYPE A LETTER LIKE J FOR EXAMPLE, IT DOESNT TYPE A J.. IT TYPES DIFFERENT LETTER .


If it always types the same wrong letter you are probably in a language mode or the pitch is in ps. If the letter changes after you turn it off and on the homing pawl spring is bad you need a tech.

Passing PCL code from Word document


All PCL Command Sequences begin with the escape character (an ASCII control code with a hex value of 1Bh, 27 decimal) and end with the first upper case letter (or "=" note: "@" is considered an uppercase letter). In between there is either nothing (the PCL command is just the escape and a single upper case letter) or a set of one or two characters and often a numerical value. The single character commands are listed at the end of the "Decoded PCL commands" table below. The first non-uppercase character after the escape will be a symbol between "!" and "\" (most commonly one of %,&,( or *) which is called the "parameter." After the parameter there is normally a lower case letter called the "group." After this there may be a numeric value. If no value is present, the value is assumed to be zero. Finally the ending uppercase letter is called the "command." See Examples, Tutorials below for some samples of PCL commands and the Decoded commands List for detailed information. Note that these use the text "Ec" to mean the escape character. Since the escape character is not printable, it is very hard to convey in human readable text. Common abreviations are Esc, Ec, [], or <-. See the ASCII page for more information on the codes. That page also allows you to convert between hex, decimal or ASCII codes. The form below can be used to find english descriptions of PCL commands. Just paste the PCL into the box, if you use "Ec" or "esc" to mean the escape character, press the "Ec and esc

i hope this will work for you

All the Best.
