Use the "Fn+ X" where X stands for the function key i.e. F1, F2 like that on which the small light symbol is printed

Keyboard typing wrong letters


Your keyboard is not "typing wrong letters", you have a stuck key. The key is shorting out and is stuck on the letter W. Usually caused by dirt/dust/spills on the keyboard jamming the key so it can't release. Things to try in order of difficulty:
>Vacuum cleaner with brush attachment, vac the keys.
>Paper towel moistened lightly rubbed on the 4 sides of the W key; use a knife blade to gently work down into the edges.
>Soft toothbrush, lightly dampened with water, work the bristles all
all around the edges of the W key. After that do step 2 with a dry
dry paper towel.
>Take the keyboard apart; usually several tiny screws on the rear/sides. CAREFULLY remove the top. You may have to turn the board over, lie on its face to do this. Do not knock the letters out of order or you will have a headache placing them back in proper order! Clear whatever it blocking the W and replace the cover.
If none of the above works the keyboard has failed, needs to be replaced.

Wrong letters display when I type


Hi Check "Control Panel" > "Regional and Language Options" > "Keyboards and Languages" > "Change Keyboards". This brings up the "Text Services and Input Languages" dialog box in Vista (XP may be a slightly different path). This box will display (in the "Installed services" section) how many keyboard layouts are installed on your computer. If have more than just the "US" keyboard installed, there exists certain keyboard combinations with the "Ctrl" key that will automatically switch your keyboard layout from the default US to another one that is installed

Hi, I have a Lenovo s10-2 and when i researched it before I bought it it said it had an led light for the keyboard, which I really liked with my old thinkpad. For the life of me I can't find it. Any...


Hi kenax951,

Thank you for choosing Fixya, I see that you are asking where the option for the keyboard light will be on your S10-2 Lenovo Netbook.

I am sorry to say that the S10-2 Netbook does not have that function or light under the keyboard to illuminate the keys.

All Lenovo systems do not have that kind of keyboard, only IBM would have some Laptops that have a light that can illuminate the keyboard.

I have checked every detailed manual and refference regarding the Lenovo S10-2 Netbook but there isn't anything that would specify about a light LED on the keys of the s10-2 keyboard.


Thank you for choosing Fixya,

The shift key,backspace,delete buttons are not working


here are some tips to solve keyboard problems:

How to fix Keyboard problems:

1. Due to wear and tear, the keys for certain characters on a keyboard will wear out. This happens for more commonly used characters. If the problem is due to loose or improper contact, you can try to fix the key back. If this does not work, you can replace the key with a new key purchased from a computer store. Love your keyboard by handling it gentle.

2. Sometimes the keyboard drivers can get corrupted. You need to change them or test the driver.

Go to My Computer :::>Hardware:::>Device Manager and uninstall the keyboard. For windowsXP Start:::>Control panel:::>Keyboard:::>Hardware:::> uninstall keyboard. Restart the computer, the keyboard should get reinstalled automatically.The keyboard should start working again. If not so get keyboard drivers by updating windows or manufacturer web site.

Always use computer or antivirus protection - run a free computer antivirus scan or any other anti-virus since virus can corrupt system files. get one now!

3. Try to swap the keyboard with another keyboard which works properly on another computer. If the alternate keyboard has the same problem, there may be a problem with the keyboard circuit on motherboard.

If the alternate keyboard works properly, check if the keyboard cable is properly connected, whether wires in the keyboard cable are connected properly.

4. Open out the keyboard and check if the keyboard fuse is working. If the fuse has blown, replace it with another fuse of the same rating and size.

5. If you spill water or any liquid on the keyboard, switch off the computer immediately. Unplug the keyboard, turn the keyboard upside down and keep it out for drying either in the sun or under a fan. If some other sticky fluid has been spilled on the keyboard, use a moist cotton swab or ear bud to clean computer or wipe away the fluid. Only when it is completely dry, (it will take a minimum of 24 hours depending on the weather), connect the keyboard back to your computer.

6. For USB keyboard change the USB ports or unplug the keyboard from the USB port then plug it back until it responds or detected. Usually the keyboard led(indicator) lighting up should show a successful connection.

7. Set the speed of character repeatation. For windowsXP Start:::>Control panel:::>Keyboard:::>Speed:::>make adjustments.

8. Set the blinking rate of cursor. For windowsXP Start:::>Control panel:::>Keyboard:::>Speed:::>make adjustments.

9. Go for a typing course or tutorial on how to use keboard features.

10. For discolouration or fading of white keyboard. Use good computer cleaners,soft cloth, whiteners or vinegar mixed with water to keep the original white colour or clean. don't use bleach or rough material to clean. disconnect the power supply. switching to good black keyboard can comfort you.

I use MacBook Pro (OS X version 10.5.8) in combination with LCD TV, wireless mouse and new Apple wireless keyboard. The problem is that function keys of the wireless keyboard do not respond in a same way...


Make sure to run all available software updates as there's probably a firmware update for your keyboard you need to download.

If there isn't or the problem persists afterwards, you'll need to go into Apple Menu > System Preferences > Keyboard and Mouse > Keyboard and uncheck 'Use all F1, F2 etc. keys as standard function keys.'

Good luck!

How do you unlock the CAPS lock


Hi,

To unlock the caps lock on your keyboard, please click on the caps lock key again.

Check for few iluminating lights on your keyboard as well, as few of the models does have that.

If the Caps lock is ON the lights normally illuminate and If you click on the caps lock key again, the lights go off.
