1 Answer

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!

Sony Vaio keyboard repeating letters


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.

When typing on keys it put multiple letters


The keys are sticking. Has something been spilled on it? Try these things:

Compressed air under the keys.

A blunt thin knife to jiggle keys slightly, be careful.

A damp cloth.

Certain letter keys give me numbers instead of the letter on my verbatim wireless keyboard and mouse


Sounds like NUMlock, or another function key like that. Are those numbers on the keys themselves? That's a common problem for laptop keyboards that do not have number pads.

Hi wa33ban2hart

Question: "Some letters on my keyboard result in the wrong character. This problem showed up weeks after purchase. Initially it was working fine".

You've done unbelievably well to type an error-free, letter-perfect question, despite the character confusion.

This is a very strange problem to have on a desktop keyboard (Dynex Keyboard and Mouse), since the way to achieve the above sentence as you have written it, is to use the Fn and NumLk keys, on a laptop keyboard, to enable buttons with multiple functions to print their alternative characters designated to them.

Desktop keyboards do not usually have Fn keys and the NumLk key on a desktop keyboard locks and unlocks the Number Pad on the right of the keyboard, which usually has no alternative letter values on its keys.

Solution: Press and hold the Fn (Function) key on your keyboard > press the NumLk (Number Lock) key (usually F10, F11 or F12) > release both keys > test keys J, K, L, U, I, O etc. again.

That should resolve your problem.

I hope this helps.

My letter keyboard is showing numbers and not letter..please help. (advent laptop)


Laptops do not have as many keys as a normal keyboard so often they include the numbers over letter keys.
So, by mistake you pressed a ctrl or alt or [A] key that simply switches the keys from letters to numbers.
A light or indication must be ON on your laptop indicating that it's Numbers or Letters ON.

Find the key that changes the function and restore the function to letters.

have you tried replacing the batteries in your Wireless keyboard? it could be that simple as the wireless may be dieing if there is not enough power to send the information of what your typing.. Try this before you change your configurations in Windows.

A key (which one?) changes the letters all keys type


You're hitting SHIFT and CTRL -- which changes the keyboard input method, i.e., for French keyboard, or for DVORAK keyboard, or for Scandinavian keyboard.

Access CONTROL PANEL, and use REGIONAL settings to "uninstall" all keyboard-layouts that you _never_ use.

Keyboard


If the letters and numbers don't work, what is left ?

Keyboards are electronically organized into a matrix of rows
and columns. An internal processor monitors the columns
as it activates the rows one at a time in rapid succession,
or vice versa.

If a complete column or row is bad (electronically) then
a subset of keys will not work. For a PC, the detected key
strokes are encoded into special binary codes called
"scan-codes", which are sent to the PC over a serial cable
or a wireless link.

The operating system then employs several layers of
translation to determine which keys you pressed,
based on the language and location, as well as the actual
application actively running at the time. Also the keyboard
itself is programmable and re-configurable by software running
on the PC, such that the letter "A" for example, can generate
different scan-codes, depending on the selected keyboard
layout.

On laptops, multiple functions and the numeric number-pad
are overlaid over the main alphabetical section, such that a
single key can serve many functions, depending on the current
operating mode.

1) Make sure you don't have a software problem, and that your
keyboard is not stuck in some bizarre or foreign operating
mode.

2) Make sure that the wireless keyboard's batteries are not weak
or dead.

3) Make sure that there is a clear communication path between
the physical keyboard and the USB transceiver plugged into
the computer. CRT monitors and large metal objects will
interfere with this signal.

4) Reset the keyboard: Unplug the USB cable, and plug it
back in, or re-boot the PC.

5) If these easy checks don't fix it, contact the manufacturer,
or replace the keyboard, as these things are generally not
electronically serviceable

Typically the processor/controller is a single proprietary chip,
the circuit board has multiple layers which are very hard to
trace or repair, schematics are non-existent, and the switch
mechanics are very finicky and delicate. The actual
key-switches can use dozens of different principles, including:
capacitance, inductance, carbon pressure pads, conductive
foam, printed pressure bubbles, reed switches, optics....
you name it.

There is no practical way to repair these things, and at an
average price of $25-$100 for a new keyboard, it
is hardly worth it.
