I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have already tried the EASE ACCESS option but could'nt find to stop this Short Cuts as these keys are well working in My virtual machine , Can any one suggest the answer of it.

A:Keyboard shorcuts opens, when i press R it opens the RUN Command window & when i press E it opens the My computer , How should i remove these shorcuts. When i use these keys in my Virtual machine it works fine, Kindly guide me in this issue

Hi ABDUL WASI,
Thanks for the post!
It seems the shortcut keys are messed up. Did you get this issue before?
By default, Win+R is used to open Run command, and Win+E for opening Computer. It seems these shortcut keys are changed. Now, if you press Win+R or Win+E, which windows will show?
If you figure out which application used this two shortcuts keys. Right-click the application, choose Properties - Shortcut Tab, what's behind the Shortcut key box? Change it with another shortcuts key.
Also fully scan your computer, and if you have a backup, a system restore could help you come back to a nearlier time.

I have recently reinstalled Windows XP and now my keyboard symbols are weird. I have to press them twice for them to work, then it gives me two. My number " 6 " works fine, first tap and it's there... but with the " ^ " I have to press it twice. I can't find any drivers for this keyboard and everyone seems to just say; unplug, restart and change the USB slot. But none of this solves my problem. It is especially annoying when typing reports when my quotations have to be so difficult.

My keyboard is a Santek Eclipse, Model: KU-0603

Only these symbols are this way: ' " ^ ` ~

Everything else works just fine. I thought that perhaps I accidentally executed some program or option, but I can't find anything.

Hey whats up guys?

Hey when I have Windows Explorer opened up, and I press lets say the ' H ' Key , you would expect it to jump down and highlight a folder with that starts with the letter H right? Mine Jumps to the top right corner & searches my computer for files that start with H, or whatever else I choose to add into there afterward

How can I make it go back to the way it used to be & have it highlight folders.
Thanks in advance!

A:When I press buttons on my keyboard..

Hello Spinsta Welcome to the Seven Forums!

It mainly depends on where you have WE opened to when going to press the H key. If you simply click on your main drive here and press H the highlight immediately goes to HomeGroup. If you click on let's say the first folder on C with an A it may go direct to the hiberfil.sys file at the root which begins with H.

If you clicked in the search box and press H Windows assumes that is the first letter of the item you are running a search on there. If you happen to have Programs Files or Program Files(x86) open and click on anything in one of those directories it will go to the first H item found. WE is acting normally searching for the nearest H item being the explorer tool.

This is what's known as Ghosting, and I am not seeing any articles on the internet explaining how to fix it.

To anyone who thinks Ghosting is where you can't press more than a few keys at the same time, that's called "key rollover". What we are seeing here is true Ghosting in action, and this is not not what keyboard manufacturers are referring to when they say they have "Anti-Ghosting".

I finally have run out of patience and need to ask for help.
My microsoft keyboard works perfectly with my laptop, yet when I plug it in to my desktop computer.

The key with the " and ' symbols on them (the key immediately to the left of the enter key and 2 to the right of the L key) needs to be pressed twice for either of the symbols to appear. And when this keyboard key is pressed the 2nd time, I get the symbols twice, that is "" or '' instead of " or '

Can someone please suggest a solution?

The desktop computer is a "Medion"computer, I have checked that the keyboard is set up for English (United States) and to the best of my ability, all the settings on my computers for keyboards are the same, yet this problem only occurs on the desk top computer (the desk top is running windows 7, where as my laptop is XP)

Would appreciate some assistance, this is a small frustration, but an annoying one, having to press the key twice, then delete one of the symbols in order to get the desired " or '.

thanks in advance
Dave

Hey Everyone,

Any time that I press a key on my keyboard in game, it completely crashes the game (sometimes with an error and sometimes without). This happens with about 75% of my games, so this is definitely a hardware issue. For example, I'll load up a game, and when I go to type in my login information, the game crashes (i.e. Torchlight 2). Or if I get into a game and press the "e" key to access an item, my game crashes (i.e. Borderlands 2). This does not happen with games like WoW or Arma III, but does for most of my games.

I have tried using a different USB connector and a different keyboard altogether, but to no avail. Has anyone ever come across this type of issue?

Hi!

Okay, so I know so little about tech that I'm not even sure this is a hardware question, but it seems most likely. Basically, I know there's a button on the keyboard of most PCs that stops the keys (or maybe just the mouse?) from working. I only know this because I did it by accident once and freaked out because I thought I broke my new laptop. I want to do it now because I work a lot on small tables, and its useful to be able to highlight over my keys without pressing them all.

I thought it was that button that resembles a rectangle with two small rectangles, like a diagram of a computer mouse, except it has a line over it like a stop sign. On my keyboard, it's over F6. Only when I press it, and when I hold it down, nothing at all happens.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks guys!!!

I rather doubted (but can't ignore the possiblity) if it's a hardware problem or not & am therefore posting my thread here instead of in a "Hardware" section.

Friend of mine called earlier saying every time he types in any key on the keyboard, be it be alphabetical key, numerical key, function key & whatnot, he get 2 letters appearing in his screen, for example type in "a" gives him "letter a AND letter c" & it happens only with few keys at certain times. This happens in all software i.e. Word, Internet, etc.

He tried restarting his PC but as soon as he types in his password in the welcome screen, he's experiencing the same problem & hence can't get his password typed correctly, making the system stopping him from getting into his Desktop/System.

A rather peculiar problem, I've never heard of & couldn't get much help from researching on Internet & wonder if this is a KNOWN problem & if so, how could it possibly get it sorted out.

1) Getting his keyboard work
2) Getting into the system first by breaking the password on the welcome screen, since EVEN when typing the password, he's getting TWO CHARACTERS when all he types is ONLY ONE.

A:Keyboard Producing Two Characters On Single Key Press

Odd, this problem looks familiar...

As I said in that other forum, I think it's either a mucked up keyboard, or maybe the BIOS has gone bonkers, so try 1) different keyboard, 2) reset BIOS.

I'm assuming it's a PS2 keyboard and not USB?

Most (if not all) keyboards only allow you to press 2-3 buttons at once. They usually make the computer bleem if you exceed the limit.

I have a ThnkPad P52s that I just received a few weeks ago. Everything is great except for this nagging beeping when I type. It seems to be with the letter "e" and the next letter sometimes doesn't accept the keystroke. I have to keep going back and fixing the typos.  Lenovo wants me to send it back but I do not want to do this. I need the computer and can't have it held up for a prolonged period of time. Is there a workaround for this that I can do on my end? Can I take it to a Lenovo certified computer tech in my area instead? Thank you.

 ​I have a problem with keyboard input. I have to type very slowly to get my keystrokes to actually get entered. I need to hold down each key for at least one full second or press the key several times to type each keystroke. This occurs on all four different keyboards that I've tried including a wireless Logitech that had the same results.
 
The PC is a Dell Inspiron 560, the OS is Windows 10 Home edition (upgraded from Windows 7). Any help will be greatly appreciated. The PC is practically useless like this. Thanks!

My keyboard was acting a little strange after my younger child was playing on my 2012 ish Dell PC. I went into my device manager and somehow changed some setting and now the keyboard doesn't work at all, only beeps when keys are pressed. I tried disconnecting the keyboard and that did not help, neither did replacing it. I think it is a setting that I shouldn't have done, but I can't figure out how to fix it.

my Studio XPS1340 isn't that old...
and my battery was replaced by warranty a little over a year ago...
it was charging fine...then suddenly, when I rebooted, I got:

WARNING: The battery cannot be identified.This system will be unable to charge this battery.Press Any Key to ContinuePress <F2> 2 times to enter SETUPPress <F12> and Any Key to enter Boot Menu
Do I just need to replace the battery?

Hello, I am hoping someone could help me with this issue. I am not sure if I am posting in the right section of the forum so forgive me if i am not. I am using a compaq laptop with windows 7 for an OS. The G, H, 8, and backspace keys decided to stop working. For some reason the only way to get any of those buttons to work is if you put on CAPS lock and hold shift. Then you can use those keys. Im not sure if any other keys have been affected as of yet. Ive tried to google for a solution, which normally helps me fix any computer issues I come accross. So far I can only find the reccomendation to hold the function button and press numlock, and its supposed to remove the, "sticky keys." I am not quite sure what exactly the sticky keys are but I didnt think it was the problem here, and the laptop doesnt seem to have a function button anyways. I have seen the option to turn on sticky keys when holding shift on other computers or tapping shift 8 times, I dont know if it was turned on or if sticky keys cause certain keys to not work unless you hold shift while CAPS lock is on, but if this sounds like something you can help with please advise me of any suggestions. I appreciate any time you take to help or even if youve read this far. Thank you
 

A:Certain keyboard keys not working unless you press caps lock and hold shift?

First thing you do is get a canned air and clean out the keyboard... slowly, carefully, then do it again with the laptop upside down. That rules out the most common cause... dirt, dust, and debris.

Hey.

I recently tried to install Windows 7 on my computer. I already had it and it's a custom built computer, however I wanted to try to move Windows 7 over to my SSD however I got issues and I couldn't wipe the disks. In my BIOS I set the WDC (not sure if t's the SSD or the HDD) to the first boot priority, then ASUS CD/DVD. I ran the installation, or well to the point where you could choose what disk to install it on. Couldn't install it on any as they weren't wiped. Tried to turn off the computer and start it up again in order to access the computer, log onto W7 and format the disks. But what came up was "Reboot and Select proper Boot device or insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key". My Windows 7 disc is still in, however nothing happens. I can't press any key as my KEYBOARD IS NOT BEING DETECTED. Which is an abnormal issue, been searching around for hours now. How do I fix this? I've checked the wires, doesn't seem to be anything there. It's weird as I haven't touched any of the components, just restarted the computer and this is what came up.
