Lenovo L460 Keyboard Problem

2017-06-19, 9:03 AM

Hi dear all,

I have Lenovo L460 series laptop. My problem is about keyboard. Keyboard is generally working regularly. But sometimes buttons suddenly start to write wrong characters and i have to restart pc for reinstate.

At first i've thought that is about Windows Key and i disabled it but still it would be same.

Then i uninstall keyboard driver and install it again, done to latest windows update but nothing change.

What can i do for solve this problem ? Im so appreciate if anyone help me about it.

Yours sincerely,

I never got that issue, but what I may suggest is some "trial and error".

0) I'm not sure if on this model you can accidentally turn on the numeric NumLock. Is it showing u, i , o as numbers?

1) Try plugging an external keyboard and work with it for a while. Does it produce the same issue?

2) Try to get a Live CD (or USB boot) of a Linux distro and play with it for a while to see if you experience the same keyboard issue. If the issue appears, maybe it is a hardware related problem with the keyboard, otherwise it may be some Windows issue.


Sorry that I don't have the solution, it some trial and error.
