Sounds like the keyboard might be bad. Run your fingers thru the keys in a sweepting motion and see if that stops the keyboard from continously typing keys on the screen. If that doesn't do it then its time for a replacement keyboard.

Hey C KROL

Usually it means letters and numbers. Some signup processes don't allow characters like: # % ? _ @.



Good Luck

Problem description: hp 110-97TU netbook, windows 7 starter. without me touching the keyboard/touchpad or even type, it automatically continues to type in search text box letter ...


Hi Welcome to Fixya!
Obviously after the steps that you just did, its not a software issue.. Even though the Q key is not stuck physically, it could be a problem with the keyboard connections inside the computer..
And its really a bad thing that the warranty already expired because you will not be eligible for free hardware support.
The least thing you could do is have a local technician take a look on your netbook. They can open the keyboard for you and take a look for any malfunction on the keys or if its with the inside connections of the keyboard.
Hope this could help!

Sounds like a sticky key so just blow with your mouth where the letter is to loosen any dirt or get a knife or something flat and pointy and left the letter up. Does this work?

How to use accents when writing in Spanish in a Dell Precision m4500 laptop?


On Windows XP
  1. Log On
  2. Click the Start button
  3. Click on Control Panel
  4. Click Regional and Language Options - a new window will pop up
  5. Click the Languages tab
  6. Click on the Details button
  7. Click the Add button - a new window will pop up
  8. Select United States-International (keyboard layout menu)
  9. Click OK
  10. Click Apply
  11. Read the instructions for "Using the U.S. - International Keyboard" below.
Note: You will now have a keyboard icon on the taskbar (usually on the right side). To switch between keyboard layouts click the keyboard icon on the task bar and choose which layout you want to use. Changing the keyboard layout will only affect the log on profile used. No other users will be affected.

Windows Vista
  1. Start-->Control Panel-->Clock, Language, Region-->Change Keyboards
  2. New Window: Click the Change Keyboards button
  3. New Window: Click the Add button
  4. Select United States-International keyboard
  5. Click OK
  6. From drop down menu (Default Input Language) select United States International
Using the U.S. - International Keyboard If you followed the above directions carefully, your keyboard will now react slightly differently than it did before. First of all, notice that if you strike the single apostrophe (') key, nothing happens. To type the single apostrophe now, you must strike the single apostrophe key and then strike the space bar. When you strike the spacebar, the apostrophe will appear.
The next thing to note is that the quotes (") key behaves the same way as the apostrophe key. You must first strike the quotes key and then strike the space bar in order to create the (") symbol. These two minor inconveniences are more than made up for by the ease with which you can now type the special characters.
To type the special characters, two keystrokes are required. To type the ?, you need only strike the apostrophe key and then the letter a. The other characters are just as easy:
  • ? = ' + a
  • ? = ' + e
  • ? = ' + i
  • ? = ' + o
  • ? = ' + u
  • ? = ~ + n
  • ? = " + u
To type the special punctuation characters, you need to hold down on the Alt key while you strike the appropriate punctuation mark. On some keyboards, only one of the two Alt keys will work for this.
  • ¡ = Alt (hold down) + !
  • ¿ = Alt (hold down) + ?
Using Cryptic Codes If, for some reason, you don't want to change your keyboard, you can always type in the troublesome cryptic codes. Using this arcane system, the following codes apply:
  • ? = Alt + 0225
  • ? = Alt + 0233
  • ? = Alt + 0237
  • ? = Alt + 0243
  • ? = Alt + 0250
  • ? = Alt + 0241
  • ? = Alt + 0252
  • ¡ = Alt + 0161
  • ¿ Alt + 0191
When using this utterly out-dated system, there are two important things to remember. First, when you type in the numbers, some keyboards require that you use the "numeric keypad" located to the side, rather than the numbers along the top. Second, on some keyboards, only one of the two Alt keys will work for this.

My laptop is Acer MS2264 Can I have the manual for my keyboard since I can`t input a lots of punctuations, i.e. question mark, apostrophe,...etc Thanks


My first suggestion is to make sure your Shift key is working, by typing capital letters. The next thing I would do is make sure your drivers are updating. Here is the ACER site to check for updates:

Getting continuous apostrophes when typing in Outlook, Word, etc


It sounds like you have something engaged on the keyboard. If it were a software issue then it would only be happening in one application. We use to see this all the time at Microsoft. Look top see if the caplock or if you have another key pressed in on the keyboard.

Cannot get apostrophes or question marks


I just figured this out. Hold down your left shift key, then press CTRL. It may take a couple of times for it to work, but it will eventually.

Messed up keys


try hitting the left alt and the left shift button together, then try it out by pressing shift question mark. I had the exact same problem and i think you can alternate between french and english keys by hitting these two buttons together.
