If this does not happen with an external keyboard, most likely, it is the keyboard of the system. try to see if the F key may have been stuck. try to also remove the battery and adapter, press and hold the power button for about 5 to 10 seconds to drain any power left, then reconnect the battery and adapter and test it out. If you are unable to get a keyboard replacement, you may try to use an external keyboard with it for now.

Laptop keyboard does not type inline. It types the correct letters anywhere on an email and web page (where typing is required), any place it wants, not after the last letter typed to make a sentence.


I've had this happen to me when I drag a thumb across the touchpad. Watch where the cursor is while typing and see if it moved because of inadvertent swipes on the pad. For me, the typing cursor looks like a pipe character ' If that's not what you mean, please clarify.
If it's the touchpad swipes causing the problem, you can adjust the sensitivity in the control panel. In addition, you can attend Ms Bilby's typing class and keep you wrists high or get a scolding ;)
Thanks

When you are typing it will type the symbols instead of the letters, you have to keep hitting the function button for the letters to work, sometimes it will work hitting it one time other times you have to...


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

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.

Using Acer keyboard and Acer Veriton desktop. Keyboard misses out letters I type and doesn't seem able to keep up with me when I am typing. Hence, trying to do a typing test will result in a decent speed...


Try connecting the keyboard to a different laptop.
If the "lag" and the "missing" letters still occur,
the keyboard is the problem.

If not, try a different keyboard with your computer, to see if this "other" keyboard has the same problem. If so, then your computer, not your keyboard, is the problem.

My other laptop keeps repeating the letter I press like when I go to google search and type 'h' it will go hhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh forever and not let me type anything or delete.


Hi, this is a common problem with sticking keys, caused by a spillage i.e a drink onto the keyboard. The keyboard will need cleaning or replacing.

My Acer Keyboard wont respond when i press the key's


A few days ago my acer laptop aspire 1640z , began to behave slower than usual when typing on the keyboard. At first I thought it was a virus, I did all the necessary scans and found none.
I then thought it might be the Keyboard driver, but it wasn’t.
I went into safe mode by keeping F8 down when you start the computer and select the directory service restore mode, which resets certain applications back to its original state. I found that my internet AOL connection and explore and fire fox would not connect to the net. Make sure you have a disk for AOL or setup file for fire fox saved, to reinstall the software. This seemed to work a bit but by accident, I remove the battery from my laptop and kept the power cord connect and Wow! it works even faster than before.
I have also notice that my battery does not hold a charge anymore. My theory is that because the battery is in critical status when connected to laptop…. (Even though the power cord is connected), the computer thinks that its going to run out of power and wants to go into hibernation mode which slows everything down including typing on the keyboard.
So before you try the safe mode option, remove the battery and use only the power cord cable and see if this solves the problem. Mine is running fine again ,but when I put battery back it slows down again. I read on the net its affecting only Acer Laptops, probably because the way the power settings software is set up for the Acers.
