I think you need a new keyboard. Under your buttons are little
switches and apparently some are sticking.

Problem with my keyboard


Hook a external keyboard to the laptop, if okay! the laptop keyboard will need to be replaced, if no! do a system restore of the laptop and bring it back in time before this happened. This works most of the time.

Hi, my acer aspire 4930's keyboard not functioning correctly.. when i press letter "a" it appear as "A1" same as "Q" appears "Q1".. pls help me


Hi.

Try cleaning the keyboard with a clean, dry paintbrush just in case there is anything stuck under the keys. Once you have cleaned the keyboard try typing keys to see if it does the same thing. If the keys type as normal then you have resolved the problem.
If the keys still type other characters along with the letter then there is a strong possibility that the keyboard needs to be replaced.
This usually happens when something has been spilt on the keyboard causing it to type random characters or the characters directly above or below them.

Seeing as the keyboard is a laptop keyboard you can use a wireles/wired keyboard or you can use the on-screen keyboard if you can't get the keyboard to work.


If there is anything else please post back.



Good luck.

When i am typing @ cant instead @ the letter is " please help


The keyboard is set up wrongly or the laptop isn't one set up for your country.
If you get " when typing @ try typing SHIFT and 2 for the @ symbol.
You can change keyboard settings in Control Panel.

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.
