    I have a Linux disk that I install id it does not show any of the problems. I did find Accessibility Options in the ThinkPad Configuration option. Nothng, I also checked the Keyboard in Control Panel for something different............I will keep looking...what about a function setting?

    Ok, I upgraded to 2.21 latest bios for T60.
    It did m. damn, did it again
    It did not cure the problem.
    Boy this is stumping me badly.
    Anymore ideas?

    Hi I am running a complete scan with latest updates from McAffe but this computer updates automatically from company everyday....
    Before doing this I removed the hard disk and installed CentOS 5.0 and then installed RedHat 5.0 and then installed Solaris10 and all these hard disks worked fine with running OpenOffice or Star Office. I remove this hard disk and install XP and have the same problem.
    What keyboard settings do i look at? They all seem ok setting for fast repeat and short delay and the hardware driver says it is ok, should I re-install the driver?

  • mndavies Apr 07, 2008

    The keyboard says 101/102 but this notebook does not have that many keys, does this matter

  • mndavies Apr 07, 2008

    Nothing wrong in device manager, first thing I checked....Keyboard is fine...works fine with a different hard disk in that runs Linux or Unix.
    It is almost 5pm here in Dresden, Germany, I am heading to the hotel here soon and will log back on. I am a sysadmin for Solaris 8 Unix and consequently I am feeling very stupid at the moment. I am trying to write a training manual and this missing words deal is kicking my ****! I will logon again later, I have a 30 minute walk and it is raining like cats and dogs. I just remembered, I bought a camera for my laptop and it came with skype, I wonder if that did anything?

  • mndavies Apr 07, 2008

    thanks, I installed the latest bios and still did not help, I have just killed skype to see if this is the problem and I think it may be the problem. The keyboard has not made missed a word or letter since killing skype, I will disable the program in the service3s file or where ever.....man what a pain! Thanks for your help anyway,

  • mndavies Apr 07, 2008

    not the problem, I think found the problem with skype.....I had bought a camera for my laptop and had skype introduced with it, bad news, somehow it was interfering with the keyboard input. Really wierd!

  • mndavies Apr 07, 2008

    It is verified, the problem was the skype software that evedently took control away from the output of my keyboard at times. I nolonger have the problem as I removed skype...

  • mndavies Apr 07, 2008

    thanks, who should I click on for "Accept"

  • mndavies Apr 07, 2008

    lots of great advice.....although none of it worked, I guess I did get to upgrade my bios and I have not told my IT guys back in CA......oh ****! I can here it now, "you what!"
    You know what, I am not going to say a damn thing......................
    The money I spent which was not much, I wrote off on expenses but you guys really got me to thinking!
    Thanks for the mind jog!
    Time for some good German beer before somebody else emails me!
    After all when in Dresden, Germany, you gotta try the beer!
    Thanks, Mike

Hi,

There is a known keyboard issue with the IBM Thinkpad T60. You are not alone in this problem and base on my knowledge. the solution to your problem is to get the latest bios update for your system.

If you can provide me the machine type, i can redirect you the bios section so that you can do your upgrade sir.

thanks and i hope i was able to help you

This might be caused by some virus. If you have any anti virus make full system scan.

  • if you don't have any anti virus scanner, you may try a free demo click here:
Chek out your keboard settings.
  • Start -> Control Panel -> Keyboard. and make settings.
May be your keyboard has any physical problem.
  • So please get it serviced by your service centre.
Thanks

    see goto control panel->System ->Hardware-> Device Manager, if there is any yellow marked component then you have missing driver and you need to re-install it.



    But i am not thinking of that, i think your keyboard has some physical problem and it should be serviced/replaced or repair.



    Thanks

While typing text my cursor jumps back 2-3 lines


The keyboard speed maybe set too low for your typing skills, try increasing the keyboard speed.
Open the Control Panel - Keyboard - Speed tab and move the speed slider to the max speed.

Inadvertant deleting of text


Your description is not very specific, but I can provide one possibility that might be the cause of your problem.
Your keyboard has an "Insert" key. If you accidentally hit this key , and then position your cursor in the middle of some text, anything you type will write over all of the text ahead of it.
If this is what you are experiencing, you need to tap the insert key a second time to turn it off.

Hello - I am correcting a document but when I insert a word or place cursor before a word where I want to type, it is typing over the text and will not let me insert anywhere in document. It is striking...


Hello,

Please look down at the numeric keypad on the right hand of your keyboard. Notice the bottom left key (the zero (0) key) it also says 'Ins' (on my keyboard anyway) this stands for 'Insert'. The key next to that one to it's right says 'Del' (again, on mine it does), this stand s for 'Delete'.

When in just about all word processing, text editing and similar programs these two keys select between 'Insert' mode and 'Delete' mode.

You have inadvertently selected 'Delete' mode.

All you have to do is select the 'Insert' key to return to the editing mode you are used to.

By the way make sure your Number Lock is turned off when you do this.

Hope this helps.

Wrong keyboard config


Go into your control panel, set it to classic view if it's not already and open your regional setting panel. Depending which version of windows you have it will either have a keyboards tab or a input devices tab from there you can add back your keyboard and remove any other installed keyboards to ensure you have the right one defaulted.

f this doesn't work you can open the Accessibility options and turn them all off, then try again, finally if this doesn't work you may actually have a hardware problem with the keyboard.

Get back to me with make and model info of your computer if this is the case


Hope this Helps FixYa,

Keyboard doesnt work....


May be something spilled on keyboard or maybe loose cable under keyboard.
Some keyboards can be easily removed either with catches at front below space bar or sometimes screw on underside releases the keyboard. Others have a sliding plastic bar above keyboard which then removes to release keyboard.

Find keyboard ribbon cable and check it is in socket OK on mainboard. If not, gently prise up each end of the socket which will release the ribbon cable - push ribbon cable down into socket - press down socket edges to trap cable into socket again.
