  1. Keyboard not registering some letters


    This happened suddenly today. I had been using the laptop for some time, typing in both English and Greek with no problem.

    Then I went to log onto a website and my b key didn`t register. Other keys also fail to register or show as something different such as an accented i or a. The space bar doesn`t register. If I hit one key several times I may suddenly get a b or a random forward slash that is very faint compared to the letters. At other times, once the first key fails to register the keyboard becomes generally unresponsive.

    I had a similar problem a few weeks ago and did a System Restore that seemed to solve it. Tried that this time with no success.

    Tried 2 different malware scans which were both clear. I tried to use my Dell SupportAssist to do a hardware scan but this will not open.

    I tried to use the onscreen keyboard but although this will open it is useless as the cursor just becomes a spinning circle when over the keyboard.

    I managed to get into safe mode and the problem is still there.

    Not sure what to do now. Would a new install solve the problem?

    :)

    Hi John,

    It is possible that the issue is due to recent changes on your computer. To properly troubleshoot the keyboard issue, kindly answer the queries below:

    • When did the issue start?
    • Any recent changes made on the computer prior to the issue?
    • What troubleshooting steps have you done to isolate the issue?
    • What are the letters affected by the issue?

    We're looking forward to your response.

  3. Keyboard letters problem

    Here are the first two steps you need to take:

    • Try a different keyboard (or an external USB keyboard in case of a laptop)
    • See if the problem persists with the on-screen keyboard (osk.exe)
