Lenovo G530 - problem with certain keys on keyboard

2010-08-24, 11:07 AM

hi everyone.

 

I have a Lenovo G530 and I am having an odd problem with the keyboard.  If i press the spacebar when I type anything, i get the system date and time.  If I press the H button, I get a hn and i get nh when I press the N key.  Also get gb when I press G and bg when I press B.  The rest of the keys are fine.  Any ideas what could help???

 

I has this problem about a month ago and I remember reading somewhere on the net that if I press Alt-Crt-Del and some other key, it shoudl work... and it must have cause the problem stopped.  But now it's back and I can't find that combination again.

 

I have Windows Vista installed.

 

Thanks!!!  :smileyhappy:

Hello,

 

 

I doubt it's a hardware problem at all. I believe it's a "fun" program running on your machine that does this. Someone put it there for you.

 

A sure way to make sure what it is....... connect a USB keyboard to your laptop. If that USB keyboard is doing the same thing then it's software related, if not, then it's hardware related.

 

If it is infact a funware there or a virus you'd have to go to a malware forum and ask around. If it turns out to be malware try Spybot Search & Destroy.

USB-C: Just cos it fits don't mean it works.
I don't work for Lenovo. I'm a crazy volunteer!
