Game keyboard problem

I have an ideapad y560 and about a week ago my keyboard stopped working on games such as world of warcraft and League of legends. When I type anything it types 0-9 in order **bleep** is that? If any can help please do also I can type in chat on those games just not in anything else and no its not the num or scroll lock

Re: Game keyboard problem

press f8 to load on safe mode, right click my computer > manage > device management > keyboard > right click and remove keyboards, and restart your computer on normal mode, check if issue persists.

Re: Game keyboard problem

I am on a G555 laptop and the solution listed did not help me.

Re: Lenovo Y560: Strange Keyboard Issues

Same problem here, I am not even typing this from my Y560 because I can't.  This stinks! I dont know about all of you but this started after I did the latest BIOS update and I just wanted to check if this just happened only to me after the latest BIOS update.  I can't type let alone play any games with this problem, please someone help.

Re: Game keyboard problem

I seem to have this problem too, holding alt lets me use the keys as normal, but releasing it makes it count from 0-9. Uninstalling the drivers in safe and using another keyboard doesn't seem to work. This also happens in java games. I can still press the keys to log in to WoW with no issues, and the console commands in steam games seems to work. It may have something to do with the way it handles text boxes in these games, but that's all I've noticed.

 

edit: not sure how helpful this is but the keyboard seems to record key presses outside of the game when it converts to counting ex. if I press a key in a game and it comes out as 1, then make a keypress outside, go back in program and push another key it will come out 3. The only keys that trigger this seem to be ones that produce a symbol while typing.

I tried Yigit's suggestion but it did not work for me.  I cant play game when my computer is running in Safe Made, so I have no way to test if it works then as well.

Re: Lenovo Y560: Strange Keyboard Issues

I've had my Y560 for a couple of weeks now with no issues.  Then this week, whenever I try to play World of Warcraft or other games, the keyboard doesn't work.  Arrow keys work fine, but key mappings are all screwed up.  I went into the key mapping and W is mapping as a 4 and S is mapping as a 5.  I can use Alt-W and Alt-S and that works, but what a pain in the rear.  The keyboard seems to work fine outside of WoW and other games (I'm typing right now with no issues and was using Word 2007 and Notepad with no issues also).  This makes no sense whatsoever.

 

I did try removing and reinstalling keyboard driver, but no joy there.  Part of the reason for spending the money I did on this was for playing games, and now I can't.  Not happy at all...

@mfrazzz, I'm not happy either.

I still think that we ALL should get a full refund.

Re: Lenovo Y560: Strange Keyboard Issues

Ok now more people are having the same problem and I think Lenovo should intervene in this situation and release a patch of some kind, we all spent good money on this laptop and now we can't use it unless it is on safe mode.
