Keyboard letters all mixed up???

When hitting a number on the keyboard it gives me letters, pressing the enter button gives you the letter "j"....even after cleaning the keyboard. Please help....THANKS!

I am having problems with my 3 day old Fujitsu Laptop - keyboard all mixed up it has nothing to do with the Settings, they have not changed, my old fujitsu was the same, I could turn it off and then back on and it would be fixed, with the new laptop I have to return to a restore point although I may have made no change to the system at all - just happily tying along and then suddenley 45jjkl7809h48r098 48r9w748 ru798 4u80t70

Make sure the "Num Lock" key isn't activated (LED Off).
Windows 2000 / XP actually saves the last "Num Lock" setting when you log off and restores it when you restart.

I have a dell inspiron mini 1012 netbook... The other day when I went to type the keyboard typed itself. Now it stopped typing itself but another problem occurred. When I press 1 letter, 2 letters pop


You can try removing the keyboard and reinserting. You should find instructions online, probably a video, on how to remove the keyboard. However, my bet is that it probably has to be replaced.

Above my scroll/# lock the lightbar is lit,and some letters produce #... i = 5 etc


Sounds like yo have the scroll lock or num lock turned on. If the scroll key is a colored key (the scroll lk lettering is blue) then you will have to Press and Hold the FN function key at the lower left portion of the keyboard then hit the scroll key to turn it off. When it is turned on if you press the letter i you get the number 5. If you press the letter O you get the number 6.

Notice that the numbers on the keys that have letters are a different color than the letters (blue most times). That means you have to Press and Hold the blue FN function key at the lower left portion of the keyboard then hit the key with the same color if you want the colored representation to happen.

Some laptops will use a Square Box instead of the blue colors on the keys. In that case you have to press and hold the key a the lower left portion of the keyboard that has the square box, then hit the key you want.

I password my laptop (samsung R510) and one of the key I used is not working and I got an external USB keyboard by the keyborad is not working with, what will I do to used the external keyboard


your USB keyboard may not work because your laptop has not got to the point of initiating USB at the point of booting to password.
You could try using ascii codes to eneter the key
at the point where you need to enter the key that doesnt work press your numlock button this will turn some of your letters into numbers...they should be written on the keys in a different colur...the laptop Im looking at at the moment has 4 on U, 5 on I 6 on O, 1 on J etc...
hopefully these are not the broken key..
if you look here you will see the chart that says A=65 B=66 etc in order
http://www.asciitable.com/

find the letter you need eg v=118 in lower case
type in your password till you get to the v (if thats the broken letter)
press and hold [ALT] button with num lock on and on your newley formed number pad type in the number thet represent the letter in this case 118 when you release the [ALT] key it will insert that letter.
however this only works with an extended keypad (like a full size keyboard) where the numbers are seperate not your top row numbers which is why you need your numlock on.

if it does then work maybe you could go into your bios and turn USB legacy support on...which may then help your full size keyboard to work too.

I have a gateway mx6453.every since i gooked up my wireless gear via usb, the keypad on the laptop has the numbers on the letters UIOJKLM stuck into number ock even when I unplug the wire less. what...


this may sound weird to you but turn off the laptop, remove the bezel, screws and the keyboard. start the computer until you get a keyboard error. enter the bios and restart with f10 and enter. when it restarts, shut off the laptop again. reinstall the keyboard. restart the computer and try to use the locked keys. i doubt the usb wireless caused this. if the keys are still stuck, then the keybaord is faulty. spill liquid on it?

Keyboard letters wont work but only top row Of numbers


On a notebook computer, there is a FN key that when pressed with the appropriate special function key will disable the normal keyboard and enable the alternate letters (printed in a different color) on your keyboard.
Unfortunately, I can't remember which special function key that is--but the icon on it should give you a clue.

Simply change my keyboard from typing numbers instead of letters..I.e. I'm trying to type yonkers and it gives me y6...I know it is a simple F6 or F2 function but I forget. Its been a while since I u


You need to press the NUM Lock key.
The NUM lock key is usually the same key as the ScrLk key but to select the NUM lock you need to press and hold down the Shift key and then press the NumLk/ScrLk key. A LED light will light up to indicate the number keypad is on.

My laptop keyboard is typing different letters and numbers


It sounds like your keyboard is starting to go. Try plugging a usb keyboard and using that. If your keyboard needs replacing, it may be around $50, but that will depend.
