Answer: typing problem wrong charaters show up

Is this a laptop or regular computer? If its a plain computer I would try a different keyboard. Also Download adaware and spybot (Free on the Web) and scan your system. BOL

i have a weird problem with my laptop, words i type don't show az i typed them.

for example:

Hi = h5
How are you = h6w are y64
pronounciation = -r6n64nc5at556n
it all happened after trying the windows xp "remote assistance" feature with my friend, and i got this problem during the connection, and even restarting the laptop didn't help to fix it !

i gave my friend remote control, he opened my msn 7 window, and clicked on the drawing thingy, but when i clicked on the text typing option, the problem occured, the letters i typed showed differently !

i guess something got messed up....

i'm sure that my friend didn't do anything to cause me this problem, and i can't use restore points cuz the "System Restore" option wasn't enabled before .

btw i'm using windows xp in my laptop and my friend was using a pc with windows xp..
please help me to fix this problem , i have no idea how to deal with it ( i really don't want to format the laptop just cuz of this ! )

ps: just to be more clear, i repeat my friend did NOT do anything to cause me this problem, and i didn't spill anything on my keyboard that caused me this problem..
 

Answer:Weird Problem With Typing !, letters i type show differently !

Press the Fn button by the Ctrl button on the bottom left of the keyboard and F11. You have accidentally enabled your keyboard number pad funtion.
If it is not F11, then look for the function key (F key) that has a calculator looking symbol on it.

Just recently my computer started doing the annoying thing where you try to type, but it freezes for a couple of seconds and then all the typing you did finally shows up. It does it when I try to scroll down a page, too; everything freezes for a few seconds before my cursor is responsive again. I have a fairly high-powered computer, and no extraneous programs are running. When I keep Task Manager running, I can see spikey activity in the CPU when these freeze-ups occur. I keep things well-defragged and spyware-free. After reading one of your forums, I saw a recommendation to download "HiJack This" from MajorGeeks.com, one of the best sites of all time. So I downloaded it, and here's the log file. Anyone see anything that could be causing this annoying problem (which has happened 3 times while typing this post)?? Thanks in advance.

Under Windows 7 or Vista, when you enter text into any program, web browser or your word processor, the mouse pointer disappears.
You can choose to display mouse pointer all the time, even when you type your text. This is maybe simple but very interesting tricks which you can do inside Windows Vista.
Here is how to do it:
1. Click the Start button and then click Control Panel.
2. Then click the option of heading Mouse.
3. Then open the Pointer Options tab pointer.
4. Then uncheck the box Hide pointer while typing.
5. Finally, click on the OK button.

My mother's computer started having issues with the keyboard, recently. I'll say it how i see it, but obviously, i might be missing something.

When typing the letter q on the keyboard, "qt" comes up. w and e are fine, r types "re". This happens with two different keyboards. I brought by my (this) keyboard, and it worked fine, but i only tried for a minute. On her computer, i tried both a ps2 and usb keyboard (native for both, no adapters).

Right now, if i try to login, when i click on a user, it fills in the password field (as if there was a stuck key) and tells me the caps lock is on. Capslock button does turn it off, but it did not look like backspace was doing anything. The bios did not complain of a stuck button. Safe mode (i happened to try with networking) has the same issue. No issue using the keyboard before windows loads.

Using teamviewer from my computer to hers is tough. I can hit capslock with sometimes works, keys sometimes work and sometimes don't, if it types in two letters, i can use the mouse to highlight one (to overwrite) when continuing. With a lot of effort and time i can login. Clicking icons on the desktop does not work, from the start menu does.

I tried hitting the helper menu to get the on screen keyboard for logging on. The first time i tried, it came up and worked. Now the button doesn't do anything.

I went into Device Manager (early on, when i could still do things) and deleted the keyboard. It made me reboot, but didn't se... Read more

Answer:Keyboard typing wrong letters

Just tried again via TeamViewer. I can delete in the password field, but it acts as if there is a stuck key. (This is different than the last time i tried.) The form with the option for the on screen keyboard now does come up, but the keyboard is an empty frame and the mouse cursor (while over the frame) shows the circle of waiting.

This is weird. It's like Schrodinger's cat or something. The problem changes every time i look at it!

Hi nfarrier, Welcome to Sevenforums.

Yes, it can be virus. Did you made any changes on the PC recently?

As mentioned by Yard Dog, run Malwarebyts to scan for malwares. Run antivrus, and do SFC/SCANNOW to check for any errors.

Folks,

I'm having a strange problem, and I am unable to find anything in my Hijack This log, nor is SpyBot able to locate anything.

Does any of you see anything amiss in here?

Here's the problem:

i) When I type in a page in IE that does not exist,
instead of getting the default DNS error page
I get directed instead to the following page:

"www. <typed URL>.org"

and a search page http://www.your.com/index.php?nf=1
pops-up!!

This is highly, highly exasperating. Just when I thought I'd cleaned out the last of the viruses, worms, and other garbage
plagueing my computer for the last few weeks!

Will the head honchos on this site provide some insights please!

Thanks much.
-Vishal

It is necessary for you to replace the keyboard.It is not sending the correct signals to the motherboard. Yes, even a notebook computer has a replacable keyboard.It's a job best assigned to a qualified computer technician, to find and order a compatible keyboard, and to disassemble the laptop far enough to be able to swap the keyboard.

This has been happening every other day for me recently where I will be typing and my keyboard will randomly start typing the wrong letters or pressing certain keys will open the menu bar, but my computer to sleep or just type completely random letters. I've googled it once before and found that I should change the settings in control panel > regional and language settings which worked for me once but lately it doesn't.

I've even purposely added a foreign language and then re added my normal one (UK) but hasn't helped, it was already on the proper settings anyway. The last two times it has happened was on the night and left my keyboard unplugged, the next day I plugged my keyboard back into the tower while the computer was still loading up and it has been working fine now and did the same again last night. I don't know why it does this? Also google suggested a FN key but my keyboard doesn't have one.

Did you set your keyboard language to US or UK.
Go into the control panel and click Regional and Language Options, click the Languages tab, click Details button, then check in the box to make sure English (United Kingdom) and under Keyboard you have United Kingdom. If this is what you prefer.

When I run a word program in safe mode, it works fine. Someone told me it may be a software issue as the problem does not occur in safe mode.

Hi,

Apologies for what is probably a stupid question.
I have a Tecra A2 and run XP proffesional.
Suddenly some of the keys are typing symbols different to those indicated on the keys.
Pleeeeze tell me how to reset the keyboard to default.

With thanks, Danny.

Answer:Keyboard keys of Tecra A2 typing wrong symbols?

Hi mate,

it could be that you have a wrong keyboard map. A keyboard map is like a draft for your hardware which identfies which char is displayed when you hit a key on your keyboard.
Keyboard maps a depending which language you use so if the symbols on the screen do not match the input of your typing then it could be that a wrong keyboard map is set.

In such case you will have to set another keyboard language.

To change the keyboard map you must do the following:
Click Start -> Settings -> Control Panel -> Regional and Language options -> Click on the Tab "Languages" -> Details -> Choose your input language which matches your keyboard


Good luck and nice weekend

I didn't do anything on the computer before upgrading to Service pack 2, except register the computer and things, which I found out my problem. When entering my Email, instead of the @ sign coming up, the " sign came up.. here is a list of the keys that shouldn't be coming out when the button(s) is/are pressed(Note, I have an American Keyboard and an American copy of Windows):

Shift+2="
Shift+3=
Shift+`=
Shift+'[email protected]
Not this / but the other slash=#
Shift+Not this / but the other slash=~

Is there anything known to fix this? Because this is getting very annoying, and I just want my keyboard to be normal lol.

Any help would be greatly appreciated
Thanks in advance,
-Mr. Waffles

Hi. I am asking this as a third party. A programmer is making a MS Access database as background and a VB appl. as foreground. When I add a comment in a table with both English and Chinese, example (Is a good citizen. / &#26159;&#19968;&#20491;&#22909;&#20844;&#27665;&#12290
the VB application shows it as (Is a good citizen / ???? ) and it doesn't appear on the report. The programmer wanted me to give him a font, it is Traditional Chinese, but I told him I don't actually understand the question as the MUI language pack is installed, there doesn't appear a Traditional Chinese Fonts in the Fonts folder etc. I can copy the chinese translation into Office 2003, word, excel, access, everything, but it shows as ??? in the VB appl. Very confusing. I believe it is a VB code setting or something, I do not know anything about VB, PLEASE give me advise to forward to the PROGRAMMER. Thank you.

Problem:
1. Sporadically a long line, never ending, of "q"s is inserted into text files, input fields such as browser search, the Windows logon field when starting up
2. The Q/q key does not work - nothing is entered when pressed
3. When logging on to Windows the password is shown correctly but is not accepted by Windows. The password is accepted by Windows if the password is entered using a USB keybaord. In both cases the password is displayed by Windows correctly. (The passowrd does not contain Q/q)
4. Some other keys occasionally do not work (nothing is accepted by the system)
 
Additional info:
The Windows mouse keyboard works fine (the keyboard you can click with a mouse shows all keys working properly)

Sounds like you got a stuck key. If you have warranty, call them up. Else, look into AHK and remap the Q key to do nothing and one of your Fx keys to be your new Q key.

OS: Vista Ultimate
Script: Batch file
Goal: I'm writing a batch file that needs to call "ffmpeg" to create a movie from a series of jpeg files.

ffmpeg requires the list of jpegs to be specified with this string on the command line: %03d.jpg

My problem is that the batch file expands the "%0" out to be the string used to call this function.

Here's the exact string I'm using in the batch file:

call ffmpeg.lnk -i %base%\temp\stills\%03d.jpg -y -an %base%\temp\n%1-%2-%3.mp4

I've tried escaping the % with ^ and %% and %%%% and with single, double, and back quotes. No joy.
I have not yet tried expanding the whole string into a file, and then calling the file. That seems inelegant, but worth some experimentation...

Any help would be appreciated.

This problem is really starting to wind me up!

When attempting to play downloaded Mpgs on windows media player the legnth shows as only a couple of minuites (The time is not a constant with all the mpgs which do this).

This means that the video only plays until the time-bar gets to the end. I Hear everyone saying "The video is just that long short"!...

...Well if i click into the time-bar to skip ahead i can view parts of the video which would otherwise not play if i let the video play in full, as they are past the Total length time. For instance if i click right near the end of the time-bar i can catch the credits of the film but only briefly as the time-bar oviously still moves and because the total time is so short it quickly stops.

It is kind of difficult to explain other than this, but if it has happend to you, you will recognise the symptoms.

As i explained above i am using windows media player, however i have also tried the video on real player and the problem remains the same.

My system is a 2gig athlon xp with 512 ram, radeon 9200se, globalwin water cooling and 140 gig of Hard disk space.

Hope somebody can shed some light on this annoying problem.

Thanks

Anybody out there using Thumbsplus 3.3 to run a slide show on their PC?I have a friend who is trying to run a slide show of his holiday snaps on his computer using Thumbs, but all Landscape pics come up like a “mosaic” all pixellated. Portrait pics are perfect.I use Thumbsplus to do the same thing and mine are all perfect. We are both on win98se, he has an AOC 17” TFT monitor with an ATI rage 2000 AGP graphics card. We have tried every combination of resolution from 16 colours at 640x480 right up the maximum 36bit at 17something x 1280 but it makes no difference. We have copied the same pictures to CD and I have tried them on my PC and the slide show works perfectly. My graphics card is an ATI Rage IIC AGP.If we rotate the landscape pictures 90 degrees on his PC so that they appear to be portrait style the slide show is perfect – except, of course you have to turn your head 90 degrees to view them.Any ideas please?

Hello ,
I recently wanted to test the People hub instead of using the normal facebook app , as people hub is way faster to open , gives a way prettier look at things , and its just cool.
my concern is next:
When i open the people hub , ill see what have some people liked 10-20 hours ago.. instead of what have some people recently posted...
So for example , if id log on my facebook app , id see what are people currently posting , pictures , statuses , and so on... and when i open people hub , instead of that , i'd see some fan pages statuses which i NEVER get on my normal facebook app , and i would recieve history of likes of like 2 persons in a row..
it looks like this for example
Mariah Merulyn has posted a picture - just now.
Jay Josen has liked blabalbalab - 15 hours ago
Jay Josen has liked dcbxxnxvnx - 16 hours ago
Jay Josen has liked wwgagaaha - 20 hours ago
Jay Josen has liked eytuiwiwtwt - just now.
Its very mixed , and i don't know why , but i would like it to be normal and show me just normal statuses and basic facebook interactions.. not the moded facebook ticker which shows very old posts... and few normal ones.

However for my apps that use location services like weather.com, yahoo.com, etc. it is still showing Louisville, KY and I live in Atlanta, GA.

Hi all!

Now the jump list only displays that imported .pdf but not the .vwx files native to that application.

Answer:How do I paste a screen to a thread to show you whats wrong

Hi Brian,

This is actually quite simple, although I had a bit of difficulty fathoming it out for my first post. There are actually 2 main methods. The first, if all the necessary data is on the screen, is to use the 'Sniping Tool' and create an image which you save to your hard drive (you can tidy the image up in 'Paint' if you wish). If they are text files, then save them as normal. When you wish to include them in a post, or a reply to a post, you need to select the 'Advanced' option. One of the options here is 'Attachments' (symbolised by a paperclip). If you click on this, another window opens entitled 'Manage Attachments'. This is split into 3 sections. The top 2 sections are what you are interested in, whilst the 3 section lists the valid file types and restrictions (if any). The first section is 'Upload Fle from your Computer'. Here you can upload a maximum of 4 files from your computer. Simply click 'Browse...' and locate the required file(s) - 1 per box. I have no experience of the other option, 'Upload File from a URL', but I presume that it is used for when you wish to link to a website - perhaps someone could clarify this for me and explain this particular option. Either way, you then click 'Upload' in the appropriate section. The file(s) are then uploaded to the forum servers where they are allocated a reference number. You then need to click on 'Close this window'. When you next click on the paperclip, you will see a list of file(s) that you can include in ... Read more

Hello ... I have a flash drive attached to my Netgear wireless router that I make backups to and transfer files to and from other computers at home. It was formatted as NTFS and set up in the router about 2 weeks ago. I just noticed yesterday that all the folders in the drive have dates of 2003 -- even new folders I created today. The files inside all seem to be fine, with correct dates.

I am positive the drive did not start out this way. It was functioning normally. Does anyone know what could have caused these weird folder dates and how to prevent this from happening in the future? Is there any way to fix this? Could the backup program I am using be causing this problem? It is Syncback and it is doing automated backups to this drive.

The computer I am using is a new Asus T300 Chi with Windows 8.1.

Any ideas? I am stumped.

--Pat

Answer:Folders on a network attached drive show wrong date

It probably isn't the drive but the Router. You may have to enter the Router setup while connected via Ethernet cable and check the date. Check the documentation for the address to use in your browser, something along the line of 192.168.1.1, the last two numbers will vary between brands and maybe between models.

If the clock settings have gone back to 00:00.00 then the cmos battery is dead.This is an easy fix on a desktop, more difficult on a laptop.

Hi all,

I am having a bit of a problem with a query I am working on to display only the current week of records.

I am using BETWEEN Date()-DatePart("w",Date())+2 AND Date()

to filter records from the Monday of this week to the current day and my results are returning the 15th, 16th and 17th of this week like I want but also the 15th, 16th and 17th of every other month and year in my database.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance

I have had this problem for nearly a month. When I type anywhere in IE it does this: "the quick rownfx jumped overthe lazy dg". It works fine in Firefox (but I dont like it) and works fine in Notepad or Wordpad etc. Here is what I have done so far.

Replaced Keyboard. (Gates you owe me $15.)
Gone though the "Add-ons" one by one.
Uninstalled Google Earth.
Uninstalled Itunes.
I spent 2 hours on the phone with Microsoft Tech Support.
They had me turning things on and off and still no solution. (I had plans to go see Jeff Dunham so I had to go. He was great BTW.)

Everything I have searched for has never had a solution.
HELP!!

Thanks

Jeremy

On my Dell tablet Windows 8.1 when I use the onscreen keyboard the content of the screen shifts upward so what I'm typing isn't covered by the keyboard. My Surface Windows 8.1 doesn't do that which is very inconvenient as I can't see what I'm typing unless turn it sideways into portrait mode. Is there an adjustment for this? I hate the Dell and love the Surface except for this keyboard issue.

I recently updated my laptop (Lenovo Z570) to Windows 10. Now whenever I'm trying to type anything (my password to log onto the computer, within a web browser, in a Word doc, etc) it will all of a sudden act as if I clicked somewhere else and doesn't acknowledge what I'm typing anymore. And then a second or two later it will recognize me typing again and allow me to type. It does not pick up where it left off though, it will just resume from whichever key I'm hitting at that moment. It took me double the length of time just to type this paragraph because it keeps stopping every few seconds.

Answer:Windows 10: Laptop now randomly stops typing while I'm typing anywhere. How can I fix this?

same problem here on my asus notebook, its really bad on windows central forums, I hope someone comments with a fix?

Do hope you can help.

I type a few words in any program and then my Tecra A11 stops typing and there is no cursor or responsiveness until I click on the page I was typing on, reposition the cursor and I can then start typing again.

It's taken me several "clicks" to get this amount of text typed and this is driving me crazy. I can't seem to find why it is doing it.

Have you any ideas please?

Answer:Tecra A11 - typing stalls every few words in the middle of typing

It is not easy to understand what happen exactly.
Maybe I understand you wrong but i think the certain window where you are typing becomes inactive and you must activate it clicking on it.

Have i understood you right?

I own a Lenovo 3000 y410  and as my title indicates it is constantly typing q even without  touching the keyboard.This doesn't seem like it is a physical problem because i was able to take the key totally off ( so that there was nothing on the sensor), and clean this area with compressed air. Even while the key was not there the problem continued, so it is not just a jammed key or anything.Could this be some other issue?Thanks

Answer:when typing, cursor moves throughout. doesnt stay where im typing.

Try disconnecting your mouse or updating the drivers/software for the mouse and see if the problem continues.
Is it wireless?

it says I am a few miles away from where i am really at.

Answer:Windows 10 map showing wrong location, how can I get it to show the correct location?

If the device you're using doesn't have cellular or GPS, then it will attempt to figure out where you are based on your IP address, which can be off by a few thousand feet or a several hundreds of miles.
I have an external USB GPS receiver for my Laptop. I have also noticed that if I use the Internet Sharing feature to give Internet to my laptop, then it will pick up my correct location from my phone's GPS.

Question: Typing problem

Hello whoever reads this!
I'm having one of the most annoying problems I have ever encountered with my laptop.
 
Basically, whenever I am typing it is as if someone has clicked out of the window and I can no longer type in the document/text box I am using.
It happens in every program, most annoyingly Word.
I have to click back where I am typing to be able to continue, it happens every single word. (This message took SO LONG TO TYPE)
 
I have tried updating my touchpad and it still happens even when I disable the mouse.
 
Thank you if you have any tips!
 
Rachel
