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

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!

In my Notebook when i press some buttons i see letters and numbers  for ex. when i type K  it types 7K and J types J8 . is anyone got this problem before? Please help Thanks Bassem

Answer:keyboard typing wrong characters

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.

Most of the letters come out ok, but some of the keys writes wrong letters e.g. key with letter 'I' gives '5', 'O' gives '6', etc. And it's not the problem of keyboard layout, it's U.S. English and never been changed to another one. Problem persist in each application including command prompt. OS is XP Pro. Norton didn't detect any virus. Anyone has a clue?

My keyboard is typing correctly in Word but types nonsense when I type in either a browser window or in my email. If I type a web address in Chrome, Explorer or Firefox it comes out as random letters, symbols and numbers and the same if I try to type an email in yahoo or gmail. As I say, it is fine typing in Word. Any ideas gratefully received.

Are you sure the Regional Info is correct?If you have changed it have you rebooted it?Sounds like the US keyboard drivers / settings at install instead of UK.

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.

That is most likely a virus, you need to run a full scan with your antivirus and make sure it isn't compromised. I would also recommend you move this to the malware forum, then you will get it touch with people that are certified to help you with this.

Answer:KeyBoard Buttons are typing the wrong letters

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.

E shows up as ]
D shows up as ''

Esc, start, [ , n, y, I, F1-F12 keys don't register, among a few others..

Things I've tried so I don't waste anyones time.. [Windows 7]
Changed Location, Keyboard Layout (English - US) is the only language
Ctrl - Shift x1/2, Alt - Shift x1/2, and pretty much any other variant I could think of.
Plugged another keyboard in, same thing.
Plugged keyboard in another computer, works like a charm.
Restarted, plugged and unplugged. Uninstalled and tried to update driver..

Nothing worked so far, hopefully you can can make something happen.
Thanks in advance.

Ok, so I had Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 2, but I wanted Professional because I heard it takes advantage of the dual core thing when Home doesn't, so I installed Windows XP Professional Media Center Edition 2005 and then upgraded to Service Pack 2. 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=#

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

Ever since I got this new PC with Win7 two weeks ago, I've had problems when typing text in applications, web forums, etc. I'll be merrily typing along and somehow a random combination of keys I hit causes some unintended action, such as the opening of a new window, switching focus to another open application, opening a different application, or activating some feature I don't want. Does Win7 and/or typical apps have tons of keyboard macros or shortcuts on by default, and how can I disable them?

All I'm doing is typing normal text, I swear I'm not hitting the Windows key or some combination of ALT_CTRL_X or anything like that. Maybe it's this crummy USB keyboard, is it possible that it interprets rapid keystrokes as the wrong thing?

Hello everyone, I am a new Lenovo user. I got my w530 thinkpad a few weeks ago.I have an annoying issue with my keyboard.

Answer:W530 Keyboard typing issue

This is probably not your issue, but: I've disabled the touchpad in BIOS. I only use the TrackPoint, since I always accidentally touch the TouchPad with my hand when typing, which moves the mouse and sometimes even perform a click, activating the wrong window or moving the cursor to the wrong place. Otherwise, no. I have never ever seen anything like your issue no matter how fast I type.

I got a new z50-70 core i7 running win 8.1, 8gb ram, 15'' screen. Since I opened the box and turned it on for the first time, I keep getting this issue: sometimes, when I hit one key in the keyboard (normaly the "A", but it has happened to other keys, E, O, M...) it types it twice. For instance, hit the A, got AA. It is not something that happens all the time, but it happens a lot. I don't believe it is hardware related, or it wouldn't happen with every key. Also, it has nothing to do with the keyboard repeat config, as it kept happening even when I have disabled it. Since this happened the first time I opened it, I can't even return to a previous restore point. I was thinking this might be driver or virus issues. Does somebody have a clue on how to solve it?

Hey, everyone. I'm having some issues.

A while ago I upgraded to Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit and found out that I could no longer change the screen brightness. This was my only issue with the upgrade. So, I suffered through, later caught a virus through a bad download, and did a complete system restore, ridding myself of everything and restored my laptop back to Vista. I recently--just a few hours ago--upgraded again to Windows 7, updated my BIOS, and thought everything was peachy--my brightness was fixed!

However, other things have taken revenge on me. The number keys (not the 'number pad') 1-0 do not work at all--only 7-0 if the number lock function is activated. I've triple-checked and restored my keyboard options to US standard but nothing doing, as well as tested other regional keyboard settings, all with the same result. All of the other keys work except the numbers (and resulting symbols, !, @, #, etc).

I'm not sure but this may have something to do with it. As well as suffering through numerical madness, I've discovered that a driver I didn't realize I had, GuardedID, is not functioning properly, warning me with every few keystrokes:
"GuardedID keyboard driver is not responding. More detail on the error is available in the Event Viewer under Manage in the toolbar. GuardedID is now turned Off." Not only am I irritated with this message popping up every ten strokes but I'm becoming paranoid. There is no trace of GuardedID on my computer whatsoe... Read more

Hi there,

I was working on a paper on my desktop when suddenly my e button and 5 button lost proper functionality.
Whenever I press the "e" button, it types 1e instead, and pressing the "5" button types y5. Holding either button down gives you 1eeeeeeeeeeeeeeee or y5555555555555, but pressing them repeatedly gives 1e1e1e or y5y5y5 for example.
This does not happen when I use the on-screen keyboard, as then e and 5 type normally by pressing the buttons with my mouse. I looked into language options and nothing has changed; I only have the US Keyboard. This typing happens in Windows Word, in Chrome, in start search and even command prompt. Also have Kaspersky running and I don't seem to have a virus. I have no idea why this suddenly started happening, but I'd like it go away ASAP so I can write my paper instead of it looking like som1ething lik1e this.

Any help would be appreciated!
EDIT: Okay, the problem went away by restarting my computer. But in case anybody knows why this happened, and to prevent it in the future, I'm sure people would like to know the answer (if there is one).

Hi, I bought a Lenovo Essential G580 on 15th May 2013. Everything was working perfectly until yesterday when my keyboard started to type random characters. I had just put my laptop to sleep on the night of 20th July 2013 and when I switched on the laptop on the evening of 21st July 2013 the keyboard started typing random stuff. There has been no spillage on the laptop as its safely covered on my table and I am the only one living in my room. Also to make sure its not because of a software glitch, I tried the following: 1. Restarted the system multiple times2. Went to an earlier System restore point. (Tried 5 different one's)3. Refreshed the system4.

Answer:Lenovo Essential G580 Keyboard Malfunctioning (Keyboard typing unnecessary characters)

hi bijoy3d,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
What you can try is to reseat the keyboard ribbon (see page 49-51 of the hardware maintenance manual). If that doesn't work, there's really something wrong with the physical keyboard and you need to contact lenovo support for service.
 
 
Best regards,

Everything here is off. If i turn on the On-Screen Keyboard no keys are Highlighted (indicating they are depressed/stuck )
When I use the hard keyboard and sometimes even the onscreen keyboard its as if either Ctrl, Alt Win or something are pressed down as it just types shortcuts.
EG:

-H- typed into chrome browser address bar via onscreen keyboard types as normal
-H- typed into chrome browser address bar via hard keyboard brings up -Chrome://history- But now also on the onscreen keyboard Ctrl is Highlighted.
I click on the onscreen keyboard to deactivate the now highlighted Ctrl button and try again. Now things are different, as now both the onscreen keyboard and the hard keyboard both bring up ?Chrome://history- when -H- is typed ( Shift is not depressed )

This seems to randomly cycle one min onscreen keyboard works fine, next the keyboard works fine or they either work or none of the work rendering the computer useless.

I cant help feel it?s a software issue but im no pro and I don?t have an additional external keyboard to try but as the onscreen and hard keyboard work ok for a while sometimes I assume something is up and that?s what brought me here.

Hopefully this is clear enough to be understood and to help others who may have the same issue.

Thank you so much for your time.

I have had Japanese installed on my language bar for some time, but lately when I try to use it, the wrong characters appear when I type in the Romaji. I tried deleting the Japanese IME and re-adding it, but it made no difference. Could this be caused by a virus? How can I fix it? It still works fine on my laptop, it's only my desktop that is affected.

Answer:Wrong characters appear when typing Japanese

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.

When I restart or turn on my lap top after it's been off for a while it will only give me my background picture. No icons, no start menu at the bottom, nothing. Until I try to run a new task from the task manager (CTRL-ALT-DEL is the only keystroke-type command I know) Then everything starts appearing as if nothing was wrong. When I type online there is a huge delay between when I push the buttons and when they appear on the screen. My virus scans show nothing is wrong. (I use trend-mirco's firewall and virus scanning products and also use firefox and I don't know if trend-micro only works on internet explorer or not...) I tried defragmenting to try and speed up the typing ting but it did no good... I don't know what is wrong but I do know that I can't get the updates from the updates.microsort.com website even though they are in the trusted websites thing in internet explorer (which is what I used to try and get the updates because you can't get them through firefox) and every time I open the computer (even from stand-by) I get a message from trend micro telling me it is stopping unauthorized changes and that change is some sort of "program Library Injection" that has to be blocked about a hundred times in a minute for the first 2 to 5 minutes of the computer being on.

Hey gang, maybe someone out there can help me with this?

Every now and then, for some unknown reason, my keyboard gets a mind of it's own and begins typing letters I didn't strike.

It only happens when I'm already typing, like I'll be writing something and suddenly my word will turn into "week444444444444."

For some odd reason, a group of numbers just show up sometimes, inserting themselves into words I'm typing.

I'm wondering if it's because I currently use a device to share a keyboard and mouse between two computers. Maybe once I unhook that device, things will work normally. Though I'm not having that problem on the other computer sharing the keyboard, so that might not be it.

I dunno, it's mighty confusing. I can live with it, though if there's a way to fix it, I'd certainly love to give it a shot.

Anyone out there got any suggestions? I'd sure appreciate them!

Cheers,

Snaithbert

I don't have access to the original Windows CD so I'm unable to reboot.

Hello all;
 
recently, my ASUS laptop keyboard has been acting really erratic. Some examples are that every time I press a key, it types a different key or another key along with it, some keys simply don't work at all, and some keys just initiate some kind of massive sequence of autotyping a single character or random characters.
 
At first, I thought something must be wrong with the physical keyboard itself, but the day after I noticed the issue (which is actually today), I discovered some functions of my internet browsers aren't working probably either and not only because of the unknown keystrokes. Some of the website certificates I visited suddenly weren't trusted.
 
To go along with that, the touch pad I use to navigate and click on items tends to go in and out, but the actual two mouse buttons work fine. Another strange quirk when I opened notepad was that somehow the auto-key strokes started typing my computer's date and time!
 
I have run the latest MalwareBytes anti-malware with a full-scan and did remove some malicious objects, but the problem still remains. Could I have a virus/key-logger? Can anyone help?
 
Thanks for any assistance

Answer:Keyboard typing on its own

Have you tried using another keyboard?
What model Asus is it?
 
The certificate problem could be the computer clock is off which usually means a bad CMOS battery.

You don't say where you are I'll bet your '@' key is available if you press the 'Shift' and '2' keys (US keyboard), or the 'shift' and ' key (UK keyboard). If so it's because your laptop's keyboard is set to the wrong location.

my colleague at work uses a Dell Inspiron 1501, 512mb ddr2-4300, AMD mobile turion 64 2.0ghz running windows xp sp2, which i just updated to sp3
We have just reinstalled windows xp, as it was full of rubbish and we wanted to improve the speed of it
before i reinstalled, i noticed that on my computer properties, it said that the cpu was running at 797mhz, however at times it does go back up to 2.0ghz.
It still does this after the reinstall.
The main issue is that there is almost constant keyboard lag, each letter will take a few seconds delay before it is on the screen.
I have tried everything i know, has anyone else had this problem before??
Could it be anything to do with the cpu freq issue? or ram?
any help is greatly appreciated

Answer:keyboard/typing lag

If you've only got 512meg of ram for XP, then you only have HALF enough.
Dell is famous for NOT installing enough ram for the installed OS.

That computer will run MUCH better with a full gigabyte and even better yet with TWO.

When the keyboard is lagging it means that the CPU is too busy to service the keyboard. The keyboard has a very low priority.

Without enough ram, your OS is living off of the hard drive. That's over a thousand times slower than the ram it should be using.

Then if you've loaded some heavy duty, resource hog, like Norton, all bets are off for getting any kind of performance out of that underpowered system.

You could also have services that you don't need and background programs that you don't need....running all the time and just sucking up system resources.

Get more Ram.

My computer starting acting funny a couple weeks ago, about the same time I started getting a nasty little message about my hard drive going to fail iminantly. My keyboard started to skip while I was typing. It's not like it would take a second to two to catch up, it just wouldn't register anything I typed. I would have to wait for it to quit doing whatever it was doing (usually about a two seconds) and then it would work again. It did it about every 10-15 key strokes. My mouse also started freezing while I was trying to move it.

I know there was a previous topic about something similar to this but I didn't find a solution to my problem and the topic is closed. If I'm in the wrong area please move to the right one I wasn't sure were to go.T-T

I'm running on a HP Pavilion a6230n desktop running on windows vista. I use Firefox (and Internet explorer, my parents use it) The computer is about 3yrs old. The keyboard came with the computer.
The problem I'm having is with my keyboard not typing out what I'm spelling. For example if I wanted to go to deviantart.com it'll come up something random like 6[h4;clw\o==v,. I have to erase and retype for it to work right (It's happening in both firefox and internet explorer). And it's not just urls, it happens when I try to log into an instant messenger(spells my username wrong) and has happaned when I'm typing a reply back to someone to typing out a new im to send. I don't have an issue typing in forums, or in emails,etc. It's just the url,and im issues I'm getting.

I've already tried cleaning my keyboard(which it looks a lot better but I'm still having the issue). I'm not sure what else to do other than consider seeing if a new keyboard has this issue or not.

Can anyone help me out? I'm at a loss on what to do on this irritating issue.

I have a wired keyboard plugged  in to USB port.  in device manager, keyboard is listed and it shows that keyboard is working. when I go into device  manager and adjust speed of type, I can type letters and they are displayed,however, no where else is the keyboard typing recognized. The wired mouse works.  I have tried plugging the keyboard  in to other ports, I have updated the drivers, I have uninstalled the keyboard and restarted the computer but nothing works.  I am using the touch keyboard at the bottom with my mouse to type this

I've got one of these Logitech mouse/keyboard wireless combis. Last night the keyboard started playing up. Hitting either the T or V keys types both characters. Its the same with C or E and N and U. Other keys cause windows to open, among other random happenings. Rather annoying as some of these characters are in my log on password. If I did not have the Wacom on screen keyboard at startup I would have been up the creek. Running Vista Home Premium. I have changed batteries, and tonight I will try it with a bog-standard keyboard. if this is ok I suppose its time to ditch the Logitech and get a new one. Just wandered if anyone had any ideas.

Answer:Keyboard typing two characters

After a good coffee spill, mopped rinsed and wiped away from a veteran Cherry keyboard, the same double key standards applied. Fortunately this keyboard can be dismantled to the point where separate laminations could be thoroughly dried.But then a veteran like you would notice the wet splash ...... wouldn't you???

My girlfriend's dad's computer is only typing these vowels on they keyboard, nothing else. I noticed you had entered late into a thread about this earlier in the year, in January. Is there any chance I could get some help fixing this for him? We just upgraded from Windows XP to 7 for him on a p.o.s. old machine with only about 35GB.

Answer:Keyboard on Windows 7 only typing ÁÉÍÓÚ

If you can provide a link to the other thread it might save repeating any suggestions that didn't help. Also could you let us know the make and model number of the computer - laptop or PC etc.Have you tried another keyboard (external one if it is a laptop)?Did this happen after the upgrade?Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

A friend had a malware / virus attack in Chrome. It was a beeping warning that Windows Defender had error 0x80060402. She used the Task Manager to shut down Chrome and then shut off her laptop. When she tried to turn it on again nothing happened, it would not turn on. I now have the laptop, a Lenovo G580. I managed to get it started by removing all power, AC adapter, Battery and CMOS battery. I got to the Win 10 logon screen to enter her password, but no matter what key I press, it only types the number 6 in the password field. I have restarted many times with the same result. If I power down the laptop, it will not start again until I remove all power and the CMOS battery. It will then start up again, after reinstalling CMOS battery and connecting AC power. If I just restart, it will start again. I can not get into the BIOS. The time and date on the lock screen a wrong, but no way to get into the BIOS to change. I removed the hard drive and tried to boot with a boot CD, no luck there either.
I am hoping that the all powerful computer gurus on here can help.

Answer:Keyboard only typing the number 6

For the moment, my first thought is to try an external KB on it ... Then try booting and BIOS hotkeys, and go from there.

I'd also be sure of a BIOS reset by removing AC, batt and BIOS Batt, then holding power down on it for 30 sec (count it out).
(This works on my HP, may or may not work for the Lenovo, but worth a shot)

Can someone help please? When I am typing whether it be in explorer or any other program my words are showing up backwards. Anyone know whats causing this?

Answer:Keyboard is typing backwards!

1.  What operating system and service pack level are you using; e.g.  Windows XP Home Edition SP2?2.  Boot into Safe Mode, which loads a basic set of drivers, to see how it performs.  Safe Mode also disables much of the software scheduled to load at startup (so there's less exposure to virus/malware activity).As you power up your system, tap the F8 key about once per second or faster.  Hopefully you'll see a startup menu with an option to boot into Safe Mode.  Use the up/down arrows of the key to select an item.  Select Safe Mode item and hit Enter key.3.  Try a different keyboard.4.  Run a malware scan.

Sometime ago I spill water on my keyboard, on the area of character '1'. And ever since the key '1' keeps typing himself when unneeded.
After the splitting I detached the keyboard and dried it, I cleaned it several times after it too. When nothing helped I even switched to a brand new keyboard, but even this didn't help.
So if the problem not in the keyboard, where it can be? Maybe it's the old connections of the keyboard and laptop? Maybe the connection is a little wrong? Or on what another levels the problem might be..

Guys I'll be grateful for answers and advices, really want t solve this problem
 

Answer:Keyboard keeps typing a character

in the desktop ie and the url bar of the metro ie the keyboard numbers row doesn't work, every key in that row just repeatedly types the most recently pressed key that isn't in that row. I can type numbers with the number pad on the side of the keyboard but not symbols like @,#,$ and the rest. sometimes I write something into another program and copy and paste, but some websites don't let you do that. so how do you get the numbers row on the keyboard to work?

Answer:keyboard numbers row not typing in ie

Just taking a wild stab in the dark here as I don't use IE but have you checked your keyboard settings on the bottom of your screen (that ENG button on the lower right on the Task Bar)? Mine got mysteriously changed to French Canada the other day and I couldn't use my number row.
