You need to use th FN key to turn off the calculator keys. You can also disable this feature from the bios or utility set up. However, if it's just these three keys it may be a faulty keyboard or a driver glitch. Try uninstalling the keyboard drivers from the device manager, the reboot. It will find and reinstall the drivers. You could also check the keyboard connection, they sometimes work loose. If the problem persists after trying these, then you will have to replace the keyboard.

SOURCE: g6000 hen pressing keyboard letter it type 4

Hi there

Does this happen with almost every key, or only certain keys? And if you press a key very quickly, does it still register it as 4 presses?

Also, please confirm the operating system on the laptop, such as XP or Vista.

Please do not rate this solution unless I have answered your question or your reply will not be returned to me. Thanks.

This afternoon my laptop was working fine, then the keyboard started messing up, when I pressed any letter it came up with 4 other letters. Then i pressed '9' once and it continuously typed 9 until I


First thing I would ask is this. Was anything spilled on the key board? I had a situation similar to this and I found that my son spilled a Sprite and wiped it up but didn't tell me about it. One way to check this is to hook an aftermarket keyboard that runs off your USB2 port and see if the keys work correctly that way. If they do, I would suspect that something was spilled into your laptop keyboard.

How do you solve log problems on your calculator


I have no idea what type of log problems you want to solve. It does help to know what you have in mind. To type in the log function log(, you have two ways:
1. Use the keyboard to type it in on the command line APLHA L, ALPHA o, ALPHA g followed by opening parenthesis. Or if you can LOCK the alpha keyboard, lock it and press the keys corresponding to the letters l, o, and g.
2. Press [Diamond key] [7]
The last trick works on the TI92 and TI Voyage 200 PLT which have a full fledged keyboard. Try it anyway, if that does not work you can still use the ALPHA keyboard.

Sounds like the keyboard is in NUM LOCK mode

They keys map like this:

7 8 9 = 7 8 9
u i o = 4 5 6
j k l = 1 2 3
0 . = m .

Look for the NUM LOCK key on your keyboard.

Typically, you press the FN key (lower left corner) and the NUM LOCK key (typically towards the upper right) together to put the keyboard back into regular mode.

Your keyboard is faulty - either due to a mechanical failure or spillage.

This is pictures of a different brand, however the premise is still the same...

An easy repair - remove the top trim bezel (just under the screen) this will allow access to 2-3 screws.

Remove the screws, and tilt the keyboard out.

Remove the ribbon cable.

Install reverse of removal.
