Question about Lenovo Keyboard

1 Answer

Hi, I have a Lenovo Ideapad Y550P. In some applications, games namely, whenever I type a letter, a number appears. When I type another letter, any letter, the next number is inputed. e.g. when I type something like: qweasdzczlu, it is inputed as 12345678901. Num lock is not on, so it cannot be the problem. Oddly enough, I can type normally in chat boxes, it's just the hotkeys or keyboard controls (e.g. "w" to move forward) that don't work. But when I hold the "Alt" or "Ctrl" key it returns to normal. Any help is appreciated, thank you very much.

    If it was one application, maybe, but it is happening in all of my applications, even in those that cannot change keys. Thanks for your feedback anyways.

It seems the problem of setting in your applications.

If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LED flashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp. Please click on this link and follow my instructions to identify the fault and possible fix :-

I use Lenovo idea pad s10-2, i am encountering incorrect letters and number when i try to type anything. pls help me out on this.

Hi pradeep,
I see you are encountering the Letter and numbers issue on the keyboard.
Try uninstalling the programs that came with the machine like the ooVoo, ID vault, Lenovo readycom, also try clearing cache and cookies on you machine.
Also open Disc Cleanup to clean your system for unwanted temporary software.
If the above does not work then re installing the pre installed windows back to factory defaults will.
This can be a possible Keyboard issue as well, but was never an issue with the S10-2 machines, If all else fails then we can consider this as the issue having to replace the keyboard on the system.
Technical Support Contact info: 1877 453 6686.
I hope this helps
Haqve a nice day

When i'm in yahoo game room lobby i can't type only numbers come up not letters

Hi clownfrog1,

I'll be glad to help you out with your concern of instead getting letters you'll get numbers on your G460 laptop when you're in yahoo game room lobby. This problem is caused by some of the pre loaded applications that goes with your G460. Don't worry because you can easily resolve this concern on your end by doing the steps below:

Applications: IDVault, Guarded ID and/or Oovoo
Note: Your system may contain any or all of the following applications listed above. All you have to do is to delete these applications.

1. Go to Control Panel, then click on Programs and Features.

2. Next, inside Programs and Features you have to look for all these three applications and one by one uninstall them.

3. The system will prompt you to restart your computer uninstallation. You have to restart your PC for the changes to take effect.

Once you are done with the procedure you can go ahead and try typing in inside yahoo game room lobby. This should fix the problem.

Thank you for using Fixya.

Keys are not working correctly on key pad

It may be that you have NumLock on - these function represents a KeyPad on the Letter Keys - usually the U,I,O,P,[,J,K,L,;,M kEYS are replaced with numbers - to switch on/off you should have a key with Number Lock on it possibly abbreviated to NumLck or NumLK etc - activate that Key - may need to use in combination with the FN key as well to toggle the Number Lock on and off - also often a light appears to show its ON
