  1. Keyboard types nothing when pressing the ' / @ key


    I have searched everywhere on the internet for fixes like changing the language settings keyboard settings, driver updates and resets and Im still stuck without a button for these characters.



    Even stranger is that if I convert to US qwerty, my keyboard will use SHIFT+2 as the @ symbol AND it the quotation marks also work. So this proves that the actual key itself is functioning properly and is a software problem.



    This has been bothering me for so long now and it's time I reach out for help because I've spent hours trying to solve this thing!

    Keyboard is typing multiple things when a key is pressed

    Hi,

    To better understand your concern about your device's keyboard, we'd like to know the following:

    • The last activities performed on your device prior to the issue.
    • If you were cleaning your keyboard prior to the issue.
    • If your device has been exposed to any type of liquid.
    • Make and model of your device.
    In the meantime, you can perform the following to isolate the unintentional use of the
    Fn key on your keyboard:

    • If your laptop has a numeric keypad, press and hold Fn and NumLock
      keys on your keyboard.
    • If numeric pad is not available, press and hold Fn and CapsLock keys on your keyboard.

    We look forward to your response.

    Hi,

    I realize that you are facing issues with the keyboard on your PC. I will try to help you with this issue.

    Follow these steps to launch the On-screen keyboard:


    • Press Windows key + R to get the run window.

    • Type “osk” and hit enter to launch the On-screen keyboard and check if this helps.

    Keep us informed to help you further.
