A satellite - keyboard letters wrong

My keyboard seems to have nuts: I hit the 'b' and I get an 'x', I hit the 'c' and I get a 'j' and so on.

Can someone tell me what is happening and how I can get back to a healthy mind keyboard?


Hi Torakan,

And what laptop you have exactly?

You use Windows preinstalled Toshiba or another OS?

    My C50-A283 satellite keyboard does not work properly. It will automatically start and back. Some keys don't work not that is 'L', 'I' button does not work. Even using "on the keyboard of the screen" or external keyboard, the result is the same.

    Hi noor21

    If you have similar issues using internal and external keyboard, then I recommend you to run a recovery process that would fix the laptop back to factory settings.

    After this check, if your BIOS is up to date.

    If the keyboard problem will always appear even if you define the laptop back to factory settings, you must contact the maintainer authorized Toshiba because the keyboard failure may be related to hardware problems.

    The combination of default keys to rotate the disposal is the Ctrl + Shift or Alt + Shift key combination that is used in Firefox to the menu items, so it is quite possible to accidentally changing the layout.

    To avoid an unintended switch, assign a specific keystroke (Alt / Ctrl + Shift + number) to select keyboard layouts and remove the key combination to rotate (Alt + Shift or Ctrl + Shift) layouts

  • On my C55-B803 Satellite keyboard is typing double letters

    My laptop keyboard Satellite C55-B803 began typing double letters suddenly.

    Pls help...

    The same problem occurs if you want to use the external USB keyboard?

  • Keyboard, type the letters wrong when you play

    When I start a game on my computer without running as an administrator, he begins to act really weird. All the letters stop working. That would happen, that if I press q, he's input 1. If I have another letter of the alphabet input, it will correspond to another number, but the weird part is if I try to write a message in the game, the type of letters about what they are supposed to type.  I don't know why this is happening, everything was working fine until I recently updated my laptop. It'll be great if someone could help me with this problem.

    Hi all

    Check the following suggestions:

    (1) confirm that your keyboard is set to the English language.
    Go to the control panel. Click the icon "Region and language".
    If the setting appears to be in a foreign language, change it to English/U.S.
    Click on keyboard and language, make sure the keyboard language is set to English.
    Click on the keyboard to change and in the general tab, make sure you have the appropriate language.

    (2) check if your NumLock key is enabled. If so, the key to disengage.

    (3) run a litmus test of characters using the Diagnostics of keyboard Microsoft (MSKEY) program. While in the MSKEY program, press multiple keys in order to ensure that they are the same keys identified in the MSKEY window.
    To run the MSKEY diagnostic test, go to the Start button. In the start search box, type mskey, and press ENTER.
    Then start typing the keys that are not type correctly and see what is returned during the test.

    Please let us know if you were able to identify all the problems.

  • S50-B-15N issues satellite keyboard/Trackpad / function key - win 10 improvement

    I bought a Satellite S50-B-15N a few months ago, who came with Windows 8.1 and decided to do the upgrade of Windows 10 about two months ago. Initially, the laptop worked well but in recent weeks, he had various issues with the keyboard, trackpad, and function keys.

    Keyboard: Sometimes the laptop starts up and the keyboard detects no input. A few reboots solves the problem. If I hold the BACKSPACE key to delete several characters as a single character is deleted on one-click Rollback, I can't keep him down quickly delete several words.

    Trackpad: The same for the keyboard sometimes at startup it works everything simply. I have to use the keyboard to access devices Manager where I must get back the driver trackpad for her to start working again at the next reboot.

    Function keys: All the keys of the row from the top on the laptop (brightness, volume, stock selection, etc.) do not work. I am able to hold the "FN" key and select an F key, like F5, but other keys are completely insensitive.

    I tried reading the forums for solutions and I went to the page of the driver of Toshiba and installed all the drivers for Windows 10 for my laptop, so far, nothing has worked. Is that what I can do to make the laptop works properly with Windows 10?

    I have a similar problem. I had the same Toshiba model and bought in August. Not sure when the new driver will be released. If anyone has an idea how to solve this problem?

  • L755-18Z - poor quality satellite keyboard


    Just to start this thread to share my frustration about the keyboard on my Satellite L755-18Z. It is absolutely worst keyboard that I've tried. Type something's been pain in the a$ $ from the moment where I had this laptop 2 years ago.

    The keys are so insensitive that I literally hit / press every single letter really hard to get anything on the screen. I like really everything else on this machine, wonder how did this piece of hardware can be such a bad quality

    In the last 10 years I've used three different Toshiba notebooks and, overall, I was satisfied by the keyboard. There is now little difference with the P500. I think it is somewhat different, but there is no problem at all.

    In my view, it is almost impossible to find the perfect product today. I m quite critical and I always find something that could be done better.
    Next time try your new laptop and I hope you find the perfect machine for your needs.

  • Broken on laptop Satellite keyboard

    When I press the space bar a 4 will pop up.
    It is incredibly annoying.

    What is a virus or a broken keyboard? If you can please tell me how to fix this problem.

    Hi shaunbailey101,

    One thing is important: Satellite phone that you have exactly?

    At the moment it is not easy to say what causes this problem but you need to connect an external keyboard. If this works correctly, your internal keyboard is defective. In this case, you need a new because there is no unique key to exchange it.

    If you contact the authorized service provider, they can order a new keyboard for you. :)

  • Keyboard displays wrong characters

    Just bought a Pavilion 15-e045sa.  It was fine at first, but now when I type in the keyboard I get 3rd. It looks like with all the characters of the top line:

    • e 3F
    • r 4r
    • t t5fv

    I have already restored the computer laptop back to factory settings, updated the BIOS and checked the usual regional settings etc.  What else is there to do?

    Hello OldBooty,

    Welcome to the HP Forums and I hope you enjoy your stay!

    I understand that the keyboard will be seized of the wrong characters when you press some keys. I'll do what I can to enlighten you on this issue.

    My information is based on what you gave me, more precisely, that:

    • e 3F
    • r 4r
    • t t5fv

    Regarding the first two keys, the extra button that appears is the key top. The third key does the same thing, but includes also two keys below. I was able to look at the keyboard of this computer to examine the issue. Unfortunately, it is a hardware problem and the computer must be repaired. As it should be in the warranty, please contact HP phone support to do this. You can use this Web site for information about how to contact HP properly, based on your region: Contact HP worldwide

    Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. Thanks for posting on the HP Forums. Have a great day!

    Hi, stupid problem, but I can't fix this, my @ key is the "key and vice versa so when I press [email protected], I get" aaaagggh

    This means you accidentally chose the wrong language on your keyboard.  The United Kingdom and the United States have different keyboards.  If you choose UK instead of U.S., you will see that these two keys are swapped.

    To resolve this problem, I come to your regional language settings in the control panel and the switch instead really live you (UK or US).

  • How can I change keyboard letters to numbers on printer HP Officejet Wireless 6500

    My HP Officejet 6500 wireless said that it is not connected.  I tried to connect it but when I try to enter the network key or password from the keyboard enters numbers of letters.  How can I switch to a number?  Can I choose the network but not to enter the access code.   When I try locks up and cannot be stopped.  I tried both with the printer connected by cable to the computer and not connected.  It prints well but I can't find ink levels because it is said that it is not connected to the computer.  Who should I connect cable or not?  I use a pc not a laptop.
