    Hi, I have had similar problem. I poured some water on my laptop keyboard suddenly. This event caused some keys of my laptop such as 7,4,0 ,etc didn't work properly. I googled this problem in web and i couldn't find appropriate solution.
    but today suddenly, i poured some water on my keyboard again, after turning on laptop, i noticed that my laptop keys work properly.
    i just want to share my experience.
    i think that it will be useful for you to try it.
    Thanks

While typing, the keys change to different letters


Is your shift key stuck in the down position? Try pressing it a few times to release the key.

I typed in the key but it did not work.


Some characters can easily be mistaken to another character. Please check:
  • The letter B and the number eight (8)
  • The letter O and the number zero (0)
  • The letter Q and the number zero (0)
  • The letters VV and the letter W
2007 Microsoft Office product keys also do not contain certain characters such as 0, 1, A, and E.

My inspiron 1545 types two letters at once


On most laptops there is a function key that will lock the keyboard.

You would need to pres the [Fn] key and the appropriate [F#] key. In mine the combination


would be [Fn+F1] keys. If you shut down to re-activate the keyboard you will loose whatever you are working on.


hope this helps

Number and letter keys are stuck (type) together


This model has no numlock as it has no keypad. It looks like a faulty keyboard as the linked keys appear to be in the same column in the keyboard grid. You could try Fn+F11 as this solves certain other keyboard problems with symbols etc. Otherwise could be a new keyboard required.

How to make use of the keys


Well it is rather easy but it does take some practice, some people prefer to adopt a method whereby they assign certain fingers for certain keys, this is done mostly for quick typing. However it does not matter how you type so long as it is comfortable for you. After a short whole you will find it quite exciting. The shift key found on the bottom left hand side of the keyboard is to do Capital letters and the CAPS key is to do THIS ALL CAPITAL LETTERS. The space bar is to make a space between words, just like a type-writer.

Don't worry, you will learn in good time.

Unresponsive keyboard


Replace the keyboard. They're readily available on ebay. Also, try plugging a usb keyboard in & see if it still happens. If it does then forget replacing the keyboard. Instead you'll be needing a motherboard.

I have a Dell Inspiron 1545 and when I type, sometimes the key works and sometimes it doesn't. It's not limited to any particular key but all. Writing an email is all but out. This is my second computer...


Call them back and keep complaining. Eventually they'll probably end up upgrading you to better model.

The only time I've seen that problem it's been hardware related.

Hope this helps.
