Lenovo 3000 keyboard problem

2010-11-24, 19:36 PM

Hello

 

The keyboard of my Lenovo 3000 N200 laptop has developed a fault. It uses XP Pro

 

A few keys have started to map to the wrong letters

 

't' is displayed as 'tb'

'y' as 'yn'

'b' as 'tb' and

'n' as 'yn'

 

This is both in lower and upper case and affects all software including at the Dos prompt. All the other letters are OK

 

Also,

 

'Backspace' deletes 1 character but leaves the cursor in its original position

'Space' does nothing at all unless it is held down and then I get repeated spaces with no carriage return! This is also the same effect when holding down the Backspace.

 

I have checked the Language settings in Control Panel but everything looks OK

 

Any ideas on what is wrong and how I can get back to the original correct mappings?

 

Thanks Steve

Sorted! I used the Lenovo videos to show me how to remove the keyboard and then cleaned it carefully. Everrything is now working again as intended

Use a Linux Live CD to test your keyboard. If the problem dissapears, the main problem is Windows. If it doesn't, you need to replace the keyboard.
