  1. Laptop keys also typing adjacent characters


    Suddenly as of this morning multiple keys on my laptop type their own key but also other characters. It mostly is just additional symbols rather than letters and tends to be the characters next door which they type.

    For example:
    1) typing 'p' gives 'p['
    2) typing '0' gives '0-'
    3) typing '-' gives '0-' also
    4) typing '.' gives './'
    5) typing '/' gives './' also
    6) typing ';' gives ';''
    7) and vice versa
    Also num pad is not working!

    So in short it's like a number of adjacent keys have become fused to each other.

    I have tested this and it occurs in all programs and windows. On screen keyboard works fine though.

    I have so far uninstalled the device driver rebooted and let it reinstall - changed nothing.

    Can anybody help?
    Thanks
    Henry

  2. Laptop keys also typing adjacent characters

    Hi Henry,

    On the given sample you posted, it looks like that they are patterned to the key next or before to it. Its not jumbling to to other key like typing 'a' gives 'b'. Have you tried using an external keyboard? Or you can try the screen keyboard if its the same?

    Let us know how it goes.

    Laptop keys also typing adjacent characters

    Do you have another keyboard you can plug in and try? That will tell you if it's the keyboard (problem will not show with replacement) or the keyboard-to-PC interface (problem will persist with replacement). If you don't have an extra yourself, maybe you can borrow one from a friend /family/colleague/neighbor...?
