Question about Compaq Computers & Internet

1 Answer

My keyboard on my other laptop types random letters and symbols. For example, when I type 'a', it comes up with 'aq1= ', and 'b' comes up with 'bvg'. It's like this for the majority of the keys. I've tried turning Num Lock on and off, and turning on Scr Lock, and other things. Any advice? Thanks.

Seems like a bad keyboard. Laptop keyboard repairs are not feasible. The best wayto fix the problem is to replace the keyboard.

The logitec k120 and 120 are know for problems, random text.
Falling Star I'm not sure what you are talking about because this person was asking about the keyboard typing random numbers and letters. This has NOTHING to do with the mouse / mousepad(appartenly you thought he/she was talking about a laptop). Solution(You will have to buy a new keyboard due to the fact the logic board has went bad or something has been spilled inside of it.)

Eee pc r101 keyboard not working properly. Some of the keys won't type the correct letters and type the function letter or symbol instead or just random numbers. Also the touch pad and mouse click is...


The keyboard takes a lot of abuse and as durable as it is, they will eventually wear out. It is a very inexpensive part to replace and does not require a lot of skill. The fact that the touch pad is acting up could indicate that they are interconnected. I would replace both. The Touch pad is a more involved part to replace and I would suggest you get some help or pay to have it replaced.


You can order them off of sites like eBay, then watch a YouTube video on how to do it.

Dell inspiron 1501 laptop keyboard is typing odd numbers and symbols instead of some of the lettters. Examples, the letter "l" comes out "3" . Other letters come out as a back slash, etc. A plug in USB...


Is the Num Lock light lit? This light is the one all the way to the left of several on the computer to the left of the power button (it looks like a padlock with a 9 in the center). The integrated number pad is probably active. Press to toggle this feature off. The Num Lk key is to the right of the various function keys but to the left of the keys labeled Insert and Delete.

I hope this helps.

My mac laptop will not type certain letters. Instead, they come out as symbols. For example, I cannot type "g". It comes out as the copyright symbol.


Well what i learnt with MAC and pretty much any system is the keyboard when setting it up, if it is done in a different country format it will come out different when you type..
e.g. I have my HP G60-235DX and i Reinstalled the OS and then did the keyboard upon setup for UK english and i am in the U.S. and it came out totally different.. My @ is usually my number 2 not it is the " open quotation sign for my number 2 and my original open quotation sign is my @ sign, and this was all working fine once redone to american setup for the keyboard...
Check into that and see if the wrong setup was selected for the keyboard may have to call apple if not sure where to go for that...
99% of the time that is the issue and reason being is that keyboard and mose are like standard drives those dont require the software drivers just start up drivers and they work, so try to rethink and see in setup what was selected...
Give it a shot... what you got to lose more that a twisted keyboard... thank you

Cursor randomly jumping to last occurance of a letter


it is not a problem with your cursor, i think you didnt install the TOUCHPAD program of your Laptop that is why its jumping anywhere, install it to control your cursor on the screen.
