Question about ASUS A6U Notebook
I'm actually writing for a friend -- His keyboard seems to be stuck in some strange kind of "function" mode. -- When he's trying to type things in microsoft word etc. his strokes only register every now and again. mostly, his typing causes a function to occur eg. the computer begins putting a reference at the bottom of a page --- even when he didn't ask to do this!
Any sugestions would be great!!
According to me one of his keys is function keys (like : Fn,Ctrl,alt,shift) is stuck or gets stuck now and again , so whenever in msword u try and type nething its actually getting pressed ctrl + something, and hence weird functions keep on popping.
This generally happens either when he has spilt milk/water ne other liquid onto the keyboard, Solution to this would have to replacement of keyboards(Some keyboards are designed in such a way that liquid can be removed from then but i don't really know how).
Another reason would be over/improper use of the keyboard and particularly those keys causing them to get stuck
solution in such a case would be to remove the particular key and try cleaning it.
This problem is pretty common in laptops all you can do i use more carefully...i dont think there is any fool proof solution.
