Depressing some of the keys causes multiples of that letter or number.

    I also get multiples, when I depress the key which prints quotation marks/apostrophes. I then have to backspace, in order to erase the extra marks.

Hi james...

this may be a sign that you need to replace the batteries, when they're on the way out they can sometimes make the keyboard quirky... also... have to ask... nothing has been spilled on the keyboard (that you know of anyway) has it?

one more check you should do... go to your device manager (you can get there from the control panel - open the system settings dialogue and click on the hardware tab... you'll see it there)

find the keyboard in the list and be sure there are no red or yellow marks on it. if you right click on the keyboard and select properties, you can re-install or update the drivers for the keyboard... you can also do this from your original disk or from downloading the latest version on the internet from one of the many driver download sites around, such as driverguide or Open Drivers.

i hope this helps...please let me know if you have any questions!

Keyboards to wear out, but are not expensive to replace. Multiple key strikes and sticking can be caused by spilling "stuff" into the keyboard, even crumbs will do it.

Keyboard typing multiple letters/ numbers when pressing certain keys.


Keyboards on Windows computers can repeat letters when key press sensitivity is too high. This problem can be rectified by adjusting your keyboard's repeat frequency. Once this is lowered, key presses will occur slower and you will not have the letters repeated instantly.

Click"Start," then "Control Panel." Click "Hardware and Sound," followed by "Keyboard." Move the "Repeat delay" slider further to the left below the "Character repeat" option. The further left the slider moves, the longer the delay will be before a character repeats.

Multiple letter input in one letter


hi neriz, i believe what you meant by "multiple letter input in one letter" is that when you press a key, say the letter A, it comes up with AAAAAA on the screen, is that right? if its so, its called "sticky keys". the keys on your keyboard are stuck either with dirt, dust, food crumbs, or if water has been spilled. you can try vacuuming the keyboard or shaking it face down the table to get rid of dirt inside or under those keys. try pressing other keys aswell, if all of them acts the same way, you may want to change the keyboard settings on control panel. but if its just a couple of keys then yes, it is dirty. if this is not your case, let us know ok?

Typewriter keys only print half a letter


In general, there are two possible causes for this symptom. 1. The ribbon is not fully in front of the typeface at impact. 2. The typeface is not in the proper position at impact. Depending on the model of typewriter there can be different causes for these two conditions, for instance, on a manual typewriter, that has a manual shift key, it is possible that the segment which travels up and down when depressing the shift, is not in the proper position, thus , when the typeface contacts the paper, the curvature of the typeface does not match the curvature of the platen. This can cause the top or the bottom of letters not to print. Likewise on an IBM Wheelwriter, it is possible for the platen itself to be loose which can cause just the top of letters to print. Observe the ribbon lift position and installation. Check the hammer, printwheel, platen,

    My microsoft word has been changed


    Do you have a laptop with keys that have numbers on the lower corner of them, usually on the right-most set of keys
    [possibly in purple]

    If this is the case, which it often is n this scenario, you have activated the number lock.
    shift + numlock, or fn + numlock

    Inadvertently depressing these keys, or a combination activates the right side of your keyboard as numbers
    Normally It's to the right of the F12 key.

    You would notice that it would be letters like L and M that printing as numbers - Thats a sure sign

    Try that as it's probably the case, if not, post back.
