Question about Compaq Keyboard

2 Answers

Types extra letters or symbols

Only some letters are doing this. the q is q8, w is w9, e is e', r is r;, t is tl, y is yk, k is yk, l is tl, ; is r;, and ' is e'. I have to backspace to get rid of the extra letters or symbols, plus computer keeps going to standby on its own.
Nothing has been spilled on it and it has not been stepped on. this is a cable keyboard for my PC. how can I fix this?

Suspect the drivers first, then go from there. update your drivers,then see if it corrects the problem.if not, then you need to start considering other options (keyboard fault, damaged keys,) etc. sometimes the most complex looking problems can be the drivers at fault. see how you get on first. but do persevere.

    no problem, keep watching out for rubbish under the keys. if there is none, check one of the following: drivers, software, viruses.

Keyboard letters are typing different letters


Hi Melaine,

It sounds like you're in a word-processing or text-editing application, and have selected a Symbol font. Change to another font (like Arial) and it should clear-up.
