Mixed up keys means the keyboard mapping is awry. First thing to try is system restore. There's a good possibility that this will correct the problem. For Xp on: Click on Start > All Program > Accessories > System tools > System Restore Select restore my computer to an earlier time and select a date prior to the fault. Let us know how this goes, there are ways to reconfigure the keyboard mapping but it is a last resort. | Report abuse Anonymous Laptop Expert February 25, 2010 12:09:31 PM i restored the system and no improvement whats the last resort???? | Report abuse lotri February 26, 2010 5:01:52 AM Do you have a laptop with the embedded numpad? If you don't know what that means, look at your keyboard. Do your MKJ keys also have numbers on them? It could be some sort of problem with your Fn key (that's how I type on my embedded numpad). Try turning off your NumLock as well and see if the problem persists. If that's not the problem, try going into Regional & Language settings and make sure you have an English Keyboard selected. | Report abuse Anonymous Laptop Expert February 26, 2010 11:20:34 AM oh my god that was actually so easy, thanks a million it was driving me mad, i couldn bring my laptop anywer thanks again!! | Report abuse lotri February 26, 2010 4:41:47 PM You're welcome =) | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Mobile Computing>Laptop keyboard problem> Related ressources: ForumLaptop keyboard problem ForumProblem with a laptop keyboard ForumLaptop keyboard problems ForumProblem with laptop keyboard ForumDell inspiron laptop keyboard problem keys stop working ForumEmachines e730 laptop beeps before boot and keyboard unresponsive.
