Keyboard letter not working

lol. The best answer is to clean the keyboard or, if necessary, get a new one (for your computer, it'll cost about $30 for a replacement keyboard.) In the meantime, the easiest way to get any character you can't get from your keyboard is to use the Character Map application. (In XP: Start>Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Character Map). Find the character you want, click on it, click on "Select", click on "Copy", and then paste the character normally as you would for a copy/paste. Hope this helps! Good luck!

Letter j keeps repeating in console in windows 7

It means the key with letter 'J' was malfunctioned in the keyboard. When you open a console or notepad it goes continuously by printing the letter 'J' on the screen or sometimes you will get continuous beep.

This problem can be rectified by replacing the keyboard.

Hope this will be helpful.

Trojan types letter p automatically

My question is how do you know it is a Trojan doing this. My keyboard typed zzzzzzzzzzzzz automatically as well and after frustration I looked at the keyboard and the key was stuck down. Try cleaning the keyboard or getting another keyboard to see if this still keeps doing this. It is a keyboard issue nothing else. It may have some debris under the key so try a new keyboard. This is my suggestion. Thanks for using FixYa! John

I have an IMAC computer desktop and purchased it in 07, just the other day, the keyboard would only work selectively, sometimes not typing in letters or numbers at all

Meh, maybe your keyboard's batteries ran out.
Maybe something else is wrong, like the connection.
Have the mimosas you've been sharing with your keyboard had the cheaper brandies in them lately? Time for that AppleCare to come in handy.

Letters print out cancelling other words

there is a feature on your computer to switch between "insert" which inserts words at the point of your cursor, without being destructive to other text, and "overwrite" mode, which replaces current words/text with what you type. in Microsoft Word or other word processing programs, you can see a small symbol representing either "INS or OVR" in the bottom status bar. to switch between these modes, press the "Insert" key on your keyboard (also labeled "Ins" on some keyboards), this toggles the insert/overwrite mode back and forth.
Good luck!

Problem with keyboard or input of certain keys

hi.. is that a bi-lingual keyboard that you purchased? If so, what model? If that's a toshiba laptop w/ a bi-lingual keyboard, press the left (shift+ctrl) buttons for 10-15secs then release it. You should be able to bring back the normal function of your keyboard. If your having problems pressing the "n" key and it replaces it with a number on the screen when you type it, it's most likely that you enabled the "num lock" function of your keyboard, on Toshiba press FN+F11, on Dell FN+F11 also i think, it may differ on other models, sometimes FN+ Print Screen or Pause (above F11).

Hope this helps.
