My keyboard do not type correctly. I have to hold down each key for 2 beats before it will print.

See the title for more details.


Check the physical state of the keyboard cable & its connections, unless it's the built-in keyboard of a laptop.

Go to control panel, device, Group seized keyboard keyboard Manager.  Search for error icons & info then try to right-click, update the driver.

Go to the manufacturer's support site & get their recommended driver update, then install that.

If nothing else worked, then go to control panel configuration, device, Group seized keyboard keyboard - Manager do right click Uninstall and then let Windows redetect & reinstall the keyboard from scratch.  This may require a reboot.

  • keyboard does not type correct characters

    I type this word because when I type in Firefox (it appears only in Firefox) random characters are displayed instead of the typed character. For example if I type "qwerty", I get the following characters "asdfgh" if I try to repeat "azerty" then I "#zxcvb".
    I tried to run in safe mode and also tried resetting Firefox, I also tried another keyboard, but nothing seems to work!

    This problem may be caused by the Anti-Keylogger in ZoneAlarm, so you can disable this function until ZoneAlarm has published an update.

    Method 1

    Method 2

    Try to change the rate of repeat on the keyboard and check if it helps.

    1. Open keyboard by clicking the Start button, clicking on Control Panel, hardware and sound, tap keyboard.
    2. Under character repeat, move the repeat rate slider to the left to keyboard characters repeat more slowly, or to the right to make them repeat faster.

    If the problem persists, then it might be a problem with the keyboard itself.

    If I want to I have to hold down the FN key and shift at the same time key to get capital letters uppercase letters.

    Looks like your laptop is a numeric keypad incorporated in the standard keyboard.  So, probably, you have NumLock to be able to use this feature.  Find a way to turn off Num Lock.

    It would be better to a question in a forum of Acer...
    Or simply look in your manual...  (page 19); }

    Sync to iphoto with Iphone hangs on during synchronization. In addition the google map can be charged when I click on the places of Mediathek. Error message: "this page has not loaded correctly Google Maps. See the JavaScript console for more technical details. »

    Perhaps the reason for the problem of synchronization is the problem with the loading of google map?

    Error message: "this page has not loaded correctly Google Maps. See the JavaScript console for more technical details. »

    Apple has not renewed the contract with Google to access Google servers.

    If the old version of iPhoto, which are still using Google's servers for the cards and places are either crashing or hanging.  Places are only work in iPhoto 9.5.1 or newer, who use places of Apple servers.

    There is more support for iPhoto from Apple.  You must update iPhoto 9.5.1 with the Mavericks. It would work well, only it is no longer buying this update to Apple.

    Perhaps the reason for the problem of synchronization is the problem with the loading of google map?

    It is very likely.  If iPhoto work very well when you are offline, then your problems will be caused by the connection failed to Googles servers.

  • Profile of user not loaded correctly, you have been connected with a temporary profile. How can I fix it?

    I use a Toshiba Satellite with windows vista. My father gave it to me, but instead of creating a new user account, I have renamed the original administrator account. two years later, I have 3 accounts on the laptop, which only the original is still the sole Director and has access to all partitions on the hard drive as well.

    A week ago, my computer laptop power had reported issues so I immediately sent for repair. I came home today and the Standard 2 user accounts work perfectly. However when I connect to my original administrator account I get this pop - up message:

    "The user profile was not loaded correctly. You have been logged on with a temporary profile. Changes to this profile will be lost when you log out. Check the log of the events for more information or contact your administrator "

    I lost all my profile settings, including internet bookmarks, music playlists, etc. The office looks like a brand new installation of Vista and all the customization disappeared. I can't afford to lose all data. It is seriously important and was on my desk and in my documents.

    How can I get my profile without losing any data?

    Hi Salman91,

    Thank you for visiting the Microsoft Windows Vista Community.   New profile created, try browsing to the old profile (C:\users\username).  You should see all the old user data.  If this does not work, try to copy the files in Safe Mode.

    Please let us know if that helps.

    My mother had a hp g60-445dx laptop and she was surfing the web yesterday. She went to type something and the keyboard will not type anything. Can someone point me in the right direction to try to fix this for her? Thank you!


    Try a Hard Reset as follows.

    Shut down the laptop.  Remove the AC adapter and then remove the battery.  Press and hold the power button for a minute.  Reinsert the battery, connect the power adapter and start Notepad.

    After the upgrade to win 8 from win 7 on my laptop, that some special character keys don't work in the exact way. For example, when I press SHIFT + @-> I get "result and vice versa.

    Also the sign of the backslash works. It gives the character # and hash gives me character £.

  • file corrupt keyboard, can not type

    I am running Vista and you have acquired recently a nasty virus and a program called care online which starts the search from my computer start up.  My computer would crash whenever I tried to do anything.  I contacted my anti-virus (Trend Micro) company and their suggestion ran their call online from home and he finds and 9 Trojan infected files deleted. Then I also downloaded the removal of their AVFake tool, but it does not find or fix the program guard online. Now, I can't type with this computer and they could not help me further and suggested that I contact Microsoft to correct what they feel is a corrupted registry.  I was given a phone number to call Microsoft, but it was a machine automated, ask questions that were not to my questions.  Can you help me!

    Going to be honest here... You'll probably end up restoring the system to the factory settings (SHAVE - starting-format and install fresh - wipe/destroy all data on it and install the OS itself, followed by updates hardware device drivers and operating system and then the return facility on each of your applications and restore your personal data back on) then you want to check your backups and/or use a bootable external media (maybe Ubuntu LiveCD) to capture what you really want from the system for this.
