Keyboard problem with an Asus Pro Series 31: Running Vista Premium

Hi there,

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!!
Cheers,
Tim.

    Cheers Kushal,

    As it turned out the problem had something to do with his wireless mouse! -- well. We think so anyway. After trying a remote keyboard which still did the wrong things, we unplugged the wireless mouse port from its usb, and plugged in a normal usb -attached mouse: and the problem just disappeared!
    Kind of bizarre, but there you go.
    Thanks for your help in any case, much appreciated,
    Catch,
    Tim.

Hey,
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.
Cheers
Kushal

My Asus Eee netbook keyboard seems to "cut and insert" when I am writing sentences. I will start writing and all of a sudden I will notice that it will start typing from wherever the cursor was to begin...


My eee netbook will do that too. it seems that parts of my thumbs or palms tend to hit the touchpad at times clicking the cursor on different parts of the page? could this be happening to you? try disabling the touchpad with the little silver button on the left hand side of the keyboard at the top. If this does not help, you may need to replace the keyboard. It can be ordered from the asus online store.

Hope this helps you!

To turn it off:
Press the Win + U keys together to launch the Ease of Access Center.

Then click on "Use the Computer without a mouse or keyboard" (most probably the 3rd option in the list).

Then on next page uncheck the box which says "Use On-Screen Keyboard".
