Judging on your symptoms, it sounds like a replacement keyboard might be in order. If the machine is out of warranty, you can purchase replacement keyboards yourself.
Search "(computer model) keyboard" into eBay. You should see many products available for a reasonable price.
You should have a screw or two on the bottom of your laptop that have a keyboard icon next to them. Removing these screws should allow you pop the keyboard out and replace it. There is also a ribbon cable under there, so be careful when removing. For more info, search "replace (computer model) keyboard" in YouTube or a similar site. There should be many tutorials on keyboard replacement.

Hi

Try system restore. Go to START>ACCESSORIES>SYSTEM TOOLS>SYSTEM RESTORE>CHOOSE PREVIOUS RESTORE DATES. Use other restore dates if needed.

Or try this

If your laptop keyboard types wrong characters, it is rather a software issue than an hardware one. This can happen if you accidentally press certain keys on your keyboard, which enable a certain kind of function.
Try the following steps in case your laptop keyboard displays wrong characters:
1.Go to the control panel option
Click ? 'Regional and Language Services' ? 'Languages' ? 'Details' ? 'Key Settings'
2.Select the option 'Switch Between Input Languages' and click on 'Change Key Sequence'
3.Ensure that all the check boxes are unchecked in this window and do the same for 'Switch to...(Keyboard Type)'
4.Click ?
'Ok' ? 'Ok' ? 'Apply' ? 'Ok'.
This should solve your problem

My netbook (Samsung n130) has a keyboard problem. The keys for the letters u,i,o,p,k,l,m and some others are returning numbers or symbols. I have no idea why this has started. Any ideas?


Hi,

Welcome to FixYa!

It seems that you are having problem with the keyboard functionality. Is it typing numbers instead of letters? Just press Fn Nmlk for you to be able to disabled the Numlock on the computer.

Hope this information will help. Thank you for using FixYa!

There's a need for you to bring your netbook to a service center to check for any possible hardware problem. Usual cleaning should be able to resolve this issue but if not it requires a local service center to ran further check on your netbook.

Cannot type certain letters


Hi,

Verify that the key is not working in more than one application. It is possible that some keys may not be used in all programs. This generally always applies to the Function keys F1 through F12. If not all keys are working in all programs and you have Windows, attempt to boot the computer to a MS-DOS prompt or Safe Mode and test the keyboard in DOS.

If it appears that a substance has been spilt into the computer.

If any type of liquid has been spilt within the keyboard you can attempt to clean it . however, because of the dramatic decrease of cost with computer keyboards, it is recommended that you simply replace the keyboard to help prevent frustration and possibility of failure again in the future.

Thanks,
CF
