Question

Locked

Keyboard typing 2 letters at once.

By squinn ·
I was given a company laptop today and learned that the keyboard has a problem. Any time I type the following letters, this is what appears:

w= we or ew
e= ew or we
s= sd or ds
d= ds or sd
x= xc or cx
c= cx or xc
2= 23 or 32
3= 32 or 23

Any ideas on why this is happening? The computer is a Dell Inspiron 1200.

Thank you!

reflowing the solder on the keyboard connecter works sometimes, or try unplugging it and reconnecting it

takea a look at the programs that are installed on the laptop. I have seen macro programs that will reasign the keyboard, so that each one does something different. Take a look at the task scheduler and see if anything is set to automate.

Well start off with the easy things

Change the Keyboard and see if it still happens. if it does try a Live Linux and see if it still happens. if it does the Keyboard Interpreter is damaged and the M'Board requires replacing.

You can get a live Linux either as a Cover Disc on a Linux Mag from your local Newsagent or here
