Delete button keys not working laptop


Unlikely, good diagnosis though. You don't have much option there: Try a keyboard attached to it to see if that same key on the external keyboard works. If yes it means you will neeed to replace your laptop keyboard.
If it doesn't try to uninstall the keyboard driver and restart. keep your spare usb keyboard just in case, reinstall the driver from samsung support and download website if necessary.

Cheers

Razer Ultimate Blackwidow up arrow key is malfunctioning


This is going to sound really stupid, but if I was just having the exact same problem as you. I launched the Razer Synapse 2.0 program and save that my up key had a macro that did nothing. Once I changed that back to the default single up key function, it seems to be working fine.

This is going to sound odd, but i you 'slam' the I key down, does it work occasionally? Somtimes this is all it takes.. otherwise you will probably need to have the keyboard cleaned or replaced.. however, in the meantime, you can always connect an external USB keyboard to your laptop and use it instead of the laptop keyboard.

Is the Num Lock light lit? This light is the one all the way to the left of several on the computer to the left of the power button (it looks like a padlock with a 9 in the center). The integrated number pad is probably active. Press to toggle this feature off. The Num Lk key is to the right of the various function keys but to the left of the keys labeled Insert and Delete.

I hope this helps.

Clean the keyboard wiith a compressed air can, if that doesn't do the trick try a usb keyboard, if the external keyboard works well then you need to replace the laptops keyboard.

F keys suddenly not working


The "F mode" button toggles on and off the F keys. If you press it (accidentally) as I did, the keys will no longer function.

Simply press the "F mode" key again (it is directly above the "End->" key between F12 and Insert on this model keyboard) and functionality will be restored.

Keyboard Typing Several Characters


Hello,
There could be a couple of options here: 1. The keypad is defective in which case you need to replace it. 2. The keys are sticking which will cause this problem and is quit frequently what happens (unless all your keys are doing this in which case it will not be the problem as not all keys stick at the same time unless something has been spilled on the keyboard) 3. You might need to update the drivers for the keypad which you can download from the manufacturer's website. I do not think you have a virus because you would notice other things happening to your operating system or hardware. Since you plugged the usb keyboard in and it worked just fine, I think your keypad needs replaced, which you can order from the manufacturer as well and they are not that expensive. You can try downloading the drivers first and see it that corrects the problem or try removing your laptop face plate and cleaning your keypad, just be careful with the plastic tabs that hold the face plate on and not break them. I am pretty sure your keypad is bad. Please let me know if this helps or you need further assistance.

If you would not mind rating my help, I would really appreciate it. Thanks
