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

Hi vay_m0u8 ,

This is an indication that your keyboard is going to be out of order in some time.

All you need to do is to get the keyboard replaced if it's under warranty or follow the procedure below to check if it works.

  1. Open your keyboard , (Only if it's not under warranty) and then with a soft cloth clean the circuit present inside , you can use liquid like petrol for good cleaning.
  2. Once you have cleaned it , close your keyboard and then , check if it works fine.
  3. If the problem persists , either get a new keyboard , or get a replacement , if the keyboard is still under warranty.
Hope this helps ..:)

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.

Letters sometimes won't work


I assume you have a desktop system with a plug in keyboard; if you have a laptop please tell me and I will type up instructions on how to clean the keyboard on laptops.
You might want to try cleaning out the keyboard.
Unplug the keyboard and hold it upside down; shake it gently and allow debris to fall (pressing the keys can help).
I would also either use compressed air or a small computer vacuum on the keyboard.
Let’s see if this working…if not we might need a through cleaning.
