  1. Windows 10: Keyboard typing different characters


    Currently using a wired keyboard to type this, as my laptop's built-in keyboard is having some bloody issues trying to type.

    Some of the keys I type aren't what I want at all. For example, I type 'k' and it types out 'ykl', for 'p' its 'jpu-', for'l' its 'kl['.]


    Doesn't seem like a NumLk problem tho? Please help.

    :)

  4. Windows 10: Keyboard typing different characters

    double characters

    Hi Jay, my name is Max and I'm an independent advisor.

    I suggest you check if your keyboard is faulty. Connect the keyboard to a different USB port (if it is a USB keyboard) or a different computer.

    If your keyboard is not a culprit, perform the steps below to disable Num Lock:

    - Go to the Start menu to find On-Screen Keyboard, open the On-Screen Keyboard and check if characters are doubled when typing

    - If the characters are doubled when typing, type a character to check if the Fn + Num Lock keys are highlighted while typing

    - If yes, press Fn + Num Lock keys together on the keyboard to disable the active Num Lock and check if it helps.

    If Num Lock key is active, it results in characters being typed twice.
