Happened to me too - ended up needing a new keyboard, which I bought but then totally broke the pin when I replaced. So now I just use an external keyboard. You can probably get it to work with a replacement notebook keyboard, but be REALLY careful when swapping it out!

When im typing on my keyboard it shutsdown my computer. For Example: I press the enter key and all the open programs close and the computer just shuts down. then im typing in an adress bar and get done...


It can be virus problem. Try to go in 'Safe mode with networking' (press few times F8 when computer start to get menu options). Download ESET (Nod32) Online Scanner:
http://go.eset.com/us/online-scanner
Scan your computer with repair option on.
After that update your Windows. If you can't do that from Microsoft, you can use AutoPatcher.exe utility:

I don't think it is keyboard problem.
You have free AVG good antivirus for homeusers.
Good luck!

Hi, my acer aspire 4930's keyboard not functioning correctly.. when i press letter "a" it appear as "A1" same as "Q" appears "Q1".. pls help me


Hi.

Try cleaning the keyboard with a clean, dry paintbrush just in case there is anything stuck under the keys. Once you have cleaned the keyboard try typing keys to see if it does the same thing. If the keys type as normal then you have resolved the problem.
If the keys still type other characters along with the letter then there is a strong possibility that the keyboard needs to be replaced.
This usually happens when something has been spilt on the keyboard causing it to type random characters or the characters directly above or below them.

Seeing as the keyboard is a laptop keyboard you can use a wireles/wired keyboard or you can use the on-screen keyboard if you can't get the keyboard to work.


If there is anything else please post back.



Good luck.

The computer shuts down by itself repeatedly


You are on the right track. Probably overheating. Open the left side cover and check the system fan and the fan on the CPU for dust. You can clean it with a small brush or compressed air that is purchased in any electronics store or Walmart.
Good luck!

Extra characters display when key pressed


Check the NumLock Key. If your keyboard isn't typing the correct characters, you may have the incorrect input language selected. Many laptops will convert most of the keyboard into a number pad if NumLock is enabled. Press Num Lock + Function or Function then NumLock to make sure its disabled.

Types wrong characters


If the typewriter is typing letters or symbols that you do not type, it is usually because the Pitch Selector is set to "PS". The pitch selector is on the left hand side and has the numbers 10,12, 15 and PS. Place the selector on 10 or 12 and you will be OK.
Also, check to make sure your printwheel is installed properly. Remove it and put it back in to make sure.

Another thing you can try is to clear the memory. To do this, turn off the machine. Place a piece of paper in the machine sideways. Hold down the MAR REL key and while holding it down, turn on the machine. Wait 2 seconds, then let go of the key. The typewriter will start typing. Shut the machine off after about 15 seconds. Then turn it on as usual. This will clear the typewriter's memory and unexpected charaters should not happen anymore.
