SOURCE: problem with keyboard

When you hook an external keyboard to it, does it type normally? I am guessing it probably does but you need to test that first. Find a USB keyboard, hook it to it, wait for it to start working and check it out.

If the external keyboard types normally as I think it will then you probably need a new keyboard. If however your computer was damaged by moisture or unnatural compression to the keyboard, a new keyboard may not fix it. Moisture damage or compression damage to the computer can be permanent, but my first guess is a keyboard would do the trick.

Taking the keyboard off a Lenovo (less than 4 years old) is very easy. There about 4 or 5 screws on the bottom that need removed and the wrist rest (which pops out) then they keyboard comes out pretty easy.

SOURCE: Lenovo G550 (2958-ACU) the display is scrambled/folded

Your computer uses Onboard graphics(Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 4500MHD) which means the GPU is embedded into the motherboard. The problem is most likely to be the GPU as you have predicted. If your laptop is under warranty you should push for a replacement as opening it will void your warranty. However if its out of warranty then you will need to remove the keyboard to access it. Check for bad connectors from the video card. Unplug the connectors wipe them with a cloth and then plug them back in. Power up and see if it resolves the issue.
NOTE: TO AVOID DAMAGING THE BOARD COMPONENTS WITH ESD AN ESD WRIST STRAP IS MANDATORY FOR THIS FIX .

Hope this helps,
Sai.

SOURCE: keys are not working correctly on key pad

It may be that you have NumLock on - these function represents a KeyPad on the Letter Keys - usually the U,I,O,P,[,J,K,L,;,M kEYS are replaced with numbers - to switch on/off you should have a key with Number Lock on it possibly abbreviated to NumLck or NumLK etc - activate that Key - may need to use in combination with the FN key as well to toggle the Number Lock on and off - also often a light appears to show its ON

SOURCE: checksum validation failed for the PIN entered on Lenovo password for internet set up

OK, if you have a Password, why are you entering a PIN? They are two different ways of authenticating you as a valid user. You should not select the option to use a PIN. Use your Password or Network Key.

Hi, my keyboard is only typing numbers and not letters, how can I fix this problem? I have a Lenovo Intel Pentium G550


First you must figure out where the problem is, in the keyboard or in the laptop. To do this borrow a usb keyboard and try to write letters, if it works then the problem is in the Pc not it is in the keyboard. If it's in the keyboard you might be using the lock num key, deactivate it.
Now if your pc has the problem it must be a problem with the drivers, try re installing them. Lenovo machines are really stable. I'm almost sure it's a problem with the drivers.

I have a lenovo g550. I am trying to log into my computer but it says that my password is incorrect when i know its right. I think it is because my keyboard is typing numbers again instead of letters. What...


You'll need to toggle off the numeric keypad using a combination of one of the Function keys (F1-F12, or another key up there labeled Num Lck) and the Fn key, betwen the CTRL and ALT keys on the left corner of the keyboard.

Instead of the letter ''O'' I get the number 6 on my keyboard.


When the RH side of the keboard types numbers instead of letters then the Num Lock (number lock) key has been pressed.
Press the Num Lock Key again to return to letters again, usually this is usually done by pressing the Fn key plus and probably the Scroll keys, this key will be also marked NumLk, and there will be a LED light that will indicate when the number lock is on.
