Try removing he keyboard, clean the connector on both the keyboard and motherboard. Sometimes this connection will work loose or get dirt or corrosion. Make sure that it's seated well, then try it. If this doesn't fix it, I'm afraid it's time for a new keyboard.

Hi there
By correct alphabet do you mean the English alphabet?
Some computers have a "curtain" where you can change between languages..
Being Icelandic my personal experience is that to make a keyboard Icelandic the salespeople put the letters on a small lables ( with a kind of a glue to make them stick) to the letters on the keyboard to make it an Icelandic keyboard.
Once you have gotten used to the keyboard like that there is no problem to use the English one ---your brain has learnt to tell the fingers go to the correct keys.-
Take contact with the people/shop that sells your type of laptop and ask them to put the correct letters on the correct keys.
Good luck

My dell xps m140 keyboard is making double letters


Letters may be sticky. Did you drop coffee, soda or any liquid on the keyboard? Does the letter key "stick" and come up a second after you release it?
You may need to clean or replace the keyboard. To be on the safe side BEFORE you do it, plug a full size keyboard on the back of your laptop and check if the problem goes away.

B130 LETTERS STICKING SOMME WILL NOT SHOW UP TRIED SPRAYING


Letter sticking means something got spilled into the laptop, luckily its just the keyboard acting up, best thing to do in this case is replace the keyboard cause even if you clean the stick keys others could go bad down the line.

Keyboard not working


What a drag! Did the tea have any sugar in it? Anything except water or plain tea won't wash off too easily. Dirt, dust and moisture don't clean off easliy. The question is, did any moisture get onto the motherboard? I've had to wash off a few contaminiated circuit boards and it took a few good soakings in warm water and a tooth brush over all the contacts to really remove the residue. From Coke to salt water I've gotten stuff to work but it has to be very clean. I suggest getting a new keyboard if the laptop is worth it and seeing if that works. It is probably salvageable but all the contacts need to be inspected.

Wireless keyboard keys sticking


on most keyboad you can take of each key. Try to get a flat head screw driver and pop it of with some force. You then can clean the keys. If this does not work you might need a new keyboard. Do not use water (or very little)
