Y550 -Typed alphabets but numbers appeared when in Virtual Machine environment


My Lenovo Y550 is working well for the past one year. Recently i installed Virtual machine on my system. I am unable to input alphabets in the virtual machine. It interprets the alphabets as numbers like 0,1,2...


When i hold Windows button and press the alphabet together then it works. Please help me. I tried my best searching on the internet for solutions.


It is due to GuardedID software. You can un-install it or disable the function at msconfig > startup program.


For more info, please refer to this KB Article title: Typed letters appearing as increasing numbers (0,1,2,3,4,5...)
