Your numlock is turned on. There is more than one way to turn it off.Find a USB keyboard, and plug it in. Then push the numlock key on the USB keyboard to turn it off.OR, if you don't have access to one of those, hold down the fn key (lower left hand corner of the keyboard) and press the key with numlock or number lock written on or near it.

Where is the "tm" symbol


There is no "tm" symbol key on a keyboard, you need to enter an ALT key to type the trademark symbol.
Hold down the "ALT" key while typing 0153 and it will enter this: ™ when you release the ALT key

My laptop keyboard not working normally, keys not display the keys i want to type, display the other character on the keyboard...my laptop model ASUS eee PC 1001


Hello,

This is because you have Num Lk activated.
To deactivate, hold down the Fn key and press NumLk (it's the same key as insert)

Now you will have the normal characters when typing.

I am having problems with my keyboard. When I plug in an external keyboard, everything works fine, when I use the keyboard on my laptop, the characters are wrong.


Remove the keyboard from the system and plug it back in. If that doesn't work you will have to replace the keyboard. Ebay for less than $20 for a keyboard.

Wrong character displayed when typing certain letters and other letters are just continuing being typed although not pressing down on the letter. Keyboard seems to have a life of its own.


when your mac is off, try blowing some air in between the keys from all angles. Maybe to eliminate the keypad if tha'ts not the issue, try an external keyboard (wireless or usb connected) & see if everything types ok. If it does, you most likely have some dust/hairs/debris in your keypad. It happens..

My W, A, and S keys were paralyzed for a few days...
the cause...one strand of hair from one of my dogs...Thanks alot Max..

My toshiba laptop is typing wrong characters but my wireless tevion keyboard is o k. Is there a solution to this ?


Sounds like the laptop keyboard went bad and thats why its typing wrong characters. Best way to verify this is to use a USB keyboard on the laptop, if the USB keyboard is typing the correct keys then you know the laptop keyboard is bad. If the USB keyboard is typing the wrong keys as well then you know its a setting in windows that is causing the keys to type wrong characters.
