  1. Keyboard typing numbers instead of letters


    keyboard types numbers instead of letters in the command window. Also in some other apps. Not in notepad, not in google chrome not in file explorer. Pressing Num Lock doesn't change anything.

    Using an Asus UX31e Zenbook with external mouse, keyboard and monitor.

    Keyboard layout is Danish which is what I want.

    Tried with different keyboard. No change.

    Please advise

    :)

    Keyboard typing numbers instead of letters

    laptop keyboard won’t type some numbers and letters and now it types double different letters/numbers instead of just 1

    Hello**** in addition with not being able to type some letters and now it types double different letters/numbers instead of just 1 when i press many letters/numbers of the keyboard, like when I press 2 it types 32, same for 3 it types 32, i types iu, w
    types ew, same with e it types ew, s and d type ds, y types ]y and so on.. Keyboard typing numbers instead of letters :(

    I think I need to replace my keyboard, wich is a pretty complicated process, I searched "Removing and Replacing the Keyboard //my laptop model// ", I found a youtube clip for my laptop model..

    I have my laptop since 2009 and I have not experienced such a thing until now. I think what caused the problem was the fact that I used to wipe the keyboard with napkins dipped in pharmaceutical/ethyl alcohol and so far it was ok, I had no problems, but the
    damage could have happened due to infiltration of the alcohol through the keyboard’s buttons, since the keyboards are sensitive to liquids spilled on them.

    I read it could also be a problem with the motherboard, in wich case is a very complicated situation, I need to take the laptop to a service to replace the motherboard.

    please help me, I can’t live without my good ol’ laptop nor can I do almost anything with a FAULTY KEYBOARD. who could?

    ps: it took me very long to write this text, I literally had to copy/paste almost every letter from a text file that I filled with many letters, it was horrible.
