    Laptop Keyboard typing wrong character on & off


    When typing on my laptop keyboard, letter ‘M’key suddenly starts typing ‘R’ instead. It goes back to normal after rebooting.

    Pls note:

    1. This is not a case of having NUMLOCK or the wrong language selected.

    2. Does not happen when there’s an external keyboard connected.

    3. Always fixed after rebooting (and no, I am not willing to keep rebooting to get rid of the error)

    4. I ran the Keyboard troubleshooter and it came back with no issues.


    Appreciate any help provided. Thanks.

    :)

    Keyboard types wrong characters

    I just installed win10 on my Alienware17.

    When I using the default laptop keyboard, most of the keys doesn't work. Some of the keys type wrong characters. For example, when I type C it comes out Z.

    My default trackpad doesn't work as well.

    However...

    When I connect a USB keyboard and mouse to my laptop, everything goes on well.

    So what I can do to fix that? I tried the method on "change language in control panel" and I updated all my drivers to most recent version.

    Keyboard typing wrong characters on windows 10

    So just now my laptop wouldnt start. So turned off my laptop by pressing the power button and turned it on again. Then all of a sudden, my keyboard starts to type in the wrong character. I am certain that it is not even another language.

    Mostly it types the number '6'. About 90% of my keyboard characters type the number '6' when pressed, including CapsLk, Backspace, Space, etc.

    I cant even type in my password to sign in to my laptop. I dont know if this is related, but the power button keeps beeping even when the laptop is shut down.

    I am using Windows 10 on Lennovo Ideapad 500S.
