Delete Key driving me nuts(deletes 15 characters)

I have a 15 inch lenovo 720, and I noticed that when I press the delete key(right above the backspace), it deletes 15 characters.  FIFTEEN.  It deletes 1, then there is a slight delay, and it deletes the rest(14 characters).  

 

it's driving me nuts and I can't find a solution anywhere on the internet. It is only supposed to delete 1.  I am not holding it down or pressing any other keys.  Just that one key.

Re: Delete Key driving me nuts(deletes 15 characters)

Hello Fannibal

Thanks for using the Lenovo forums.


Sounds like the key may be sort of getting "stuck" in a way.

 

Try a static discharge for this, it may help to resolve the issue or at least get rid of any built up static on the motherboard.

(If the battery is internal, please just skip the remove/replace battery steps.)
1. Turn the unit off
2. Remove the battery and the Mains adapter
3. Press and hold the front power button for 30 seconds
4. Replace the battery and the Mains adapter
5. Turn the unit on as normal


Hope this helps, let us know how you get on.

Thanks for your advice, but the solution you posted did not work. I don't think it is a hardware issue because the remainder of the characters are deleted after a slight delay. They are deleted in rapid succession. I suspect it to be some software setting somewhere, but I can't find where.

Does anyone have any other ideas? I've been living with this problem for almost 5 months now... I am always afraid of using the delete key
