Preferred Solution: Lenovo Y50 Keyboard Wrong Behaviour

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.)

A: Lenovo Y50 Keyboard Wrong Behaviour

Hi AnkurSharma,

Welcome to the Community Forums.

Try connecting an external USB keyboard and test the same keys (zxcvbnm).
Another alternative to isolating if such is a Windows issue or a hardware keyboard problem is booting the machine using a live media image similar to this.

If the same issue with another boot image and likewise fine using an external USB keyboard then it is probable that there is an issue with the keyboard itself. You may try reseating the cable and cleaning but if still, the same, replacement may be proper.

Update us how it goes.

Hi,I have Lenovo y700-15isk, Win 10.The problem: Suddenly the keyboard began behaving weird. Some keys perform different actions than expected.For example, when I press 5 from Num pad, it shows 5 but also activates "options" key (between left Ctr and left Alt).When i hit - (minus from Num pad) it opens Start menu. Strangely, the Win key does not work and does not open Start menu and sometimes instead shows a minus (-).When i hit + from Num pad, the cursor immeadiately goes to the top of the page and then adds the + symbol.When i press 2 from Numpad the cursor goes to the bottom of the page and then adds 2.It is as if the NumLock is on and off at the same time making the keys perform double action.In short, the problem seems to be in the Num pad keys (with the Win key exception).I tried changing languages, layouts, safe mode, holding power key for 10 seconds, restarting... nothing changed.Please, guys, this is very frustrating, can you help me with this? Anyone had something like this?

I have been using windows 8 for a week or so now, I tried rp and cp but only in a virtual machine occasionally and now I am trying to get used to it as my main os. I do like it but some things just don't make sense.

I get that the start screen is not an "app" but why does it have to act differently to everything else? I would like to be able to drag down from the top of the screen to return to my desktop or 1st previous application. Why can't desktop apps also close when dragged down? I'm getting tired of hiding the taskbar to get them back lol

When I have an app docked at the side why do I have to aim for a thin black line when I could (and often do by mistake) just grab the top and drag it across with the same effect.

Hmm maybe you should be able to drop an app into the app bar by dragging it into that corner??

I have a dual monitor setup... if I have the desktop with the music app docked on my 1st monitor and want to open my email app (from the app bar) on the 2nd monitor the music app goes with it, if I then drag my music back to be docked on the first monitor it brings the email with it. I can drag a docked app from one monitor to the other but only in docked mode, if I want it full screen I have to make it full screen either before or after moving. If I drag a docked app to the other monitor it just gets dropped (docked on the same side of the screen) as soon as my mouse leaves the other monitor, why cant I choose where I want it??

If I have a docked app... Read more

Hi all,After I upgraded to Windows 10, my touchpad started working strangely and annoying. Firsly, when I scroll with two fingers, then remove one finger, but keep moving another, scrolling continues for a second and only after that my mouse starts to move. And secondly, after I put 3 fingers on touchpad, then remove 2 and start moving the one that was left, mouse won't move. The issue is probably somehow connected with drivers for touchpad. If somebody had the same problem, or knows at least what is causing it, please comment, I'd really appreciate!

I have noticed that regardless of whether I'm in Word (or any other application) a single press of the keyboards' 'quotation mark/apostrophe' key won't have any effect. In order to produce a apostrophe mark I have to press the relevant key followed by any other key - which results in a apostrophe and the other unwanted character - meaning a press of backspace is warranted to delete the unwanted character.

All the other letter/numerical keys work as they should, would anyone know how to make the key recognise a single keystroke.
In Windows? control panel, the default input language I can currently choose to use:

English (Australia) - United States-International, or;
English (Australia) - US

I don?t know what the technical difference between these settings is - or if the entire keyboard requires a totally different language setting for Australia.
Could someone shed some light on this uncooperative key issue?
I am using Win 7 Premium

I know that i'm an not the first to mention this but I am wondering if we can get some serious response/attention from Lenovo on the very werid and non-user-settable behaviour of the Lenovo Thinkpad keyboard backlight. I just bought a new Carbon X gen 7 and was underder the assumption that everything worked like on a yoga or any other backlid keyboard device: Turn it on / of and it stays like this until you change the setting. Or otherwise it is driven by an ambient sensor. But no such luck; on the Thinkpad for me it just doesn't work at all. (and an ambient sensor is not present) You can turn it on (fn-space) but then it will turn itself off: - randomly at some time (no clue what the trigger is)- when you close the lid- when you reboot/shutdown-start Searching for this problem I found that this an issue with all thinkpad serie laptops. Some people even written tools to fix the behaviour (https://gitlab.com/valinet/thinkpad-leds-control/) but this still does not fix it for me (just doesn't work on my carbon gen7). It's really strange to see that a lot of people mention this or complain but Lenovo just does nothing with this. I hope we can get some decent assistance from Lenovo on this issue. It's quite a let-down that this basic behaviour does not work on a premium priced machine like the thinkpad. My only wish would be: remember the keyboard-backlight setting and not reset it at all. That's it! I somehow have the feeling that it is related to the pow... Read more

Hello Thijzzzzz,

Try this

It's Control Panel>Region and Language>Keyboards and Languages>Change Keyboards>Add>French
You will probably need to reboot then.

Using the US-International keyboard layout, you can input many oft-used characters easily. Type Alt-E for ?, for example, Alt-N for ? or Alt-Q for ?. Alt-5 inputs the € sign.

Read the Use the US-International Keyboard section

I found a tutorial here in the forums as well

My friend has a keyboard that is acting very weird. I post this in the Operating Systems section because I don't believe it is a hardware problem.

Sometimes it's working absolutely correctly, then sometimes it gets a problem that sticks for a long time: When he types "2", he gets "23". "w" gets "we", "s" gets "sd", "x" gets "xc". "F1" gets "F1F2"! Same happens if he's holding shift.

His keyboard is PS/2. Fiddling with the plug did no good. We tried another PS/2 KB he has (unfortunately he has no USB KB's at the moment, but he's trying to get one now), and the problem was different: He could only type the letters "befhkmopqtuqyz" from the alphabet. I hope that's not because it's old, the last time he tried it it was 100% functional. Hell, his whole computer is old

This problem has started since he took this PC to the shop for multiple h/w & s/w problems. First he had s/w problems, then he kicked his PC, then the h/w problems started.

When he got it back, it seemed to be alright, until this KB problem started.

Will update once he tries a USB KB.

When i bought my T480 it had a problem to the trackpoint, witch was not working. Lenovo support send me a new keyboard. Didn't solve the problem because when the trackpoint started to work the keys on the left and right did not work. So I send the laptop to the repair center. They changed again the keyboard. Now sometimes the keys 'a' 's' 'd' 'q' do not work. After I press continously one of those keys it start to work again. It happens when i turn the lapton on always, and sometimes randomly when I'm using it. What can the problem be?

The keyboard just started malfunctioning on this Ideapad 100s, which is about 6 months old.  On the 2nd row of alphabetic characters (starting with ?A?) the only ones that work are ?G? and ?H?.  If I disconnect and reconnect the battery the keys start working again, until at some point (maybe after logging off and on) the problem returns.  A USB keyboard works fine.  The bizarre thing is that plugging in a USB keyboard makes the 100s keyboard work, and it continues to work after unplugging the USB plug.  This makes me think the fault is not in the keyboard, but somewhere in the software.The warranty has just expired ? obviously the warranty period was judged to perfection.I?m thinking there must be an easier trick to perform to get the keyboard working ? surely Lenovo knows about this by now.

Hi, I have Lenovo U41-70 with 64-bit Windows 7. My Nod32 antivirus is up to date. For more than a year, all Fx keys were working as expected, F1 key muted sounds, F4 key closed current window, etc. However, some time ago the F4 key suddenly started to exhibit very strange behaviour. Instead of closing windows, standard F4 keypress is sent, plus Shift and Win keys are toggled and remain "pressed". (I found this out using windows on-screen keyboard - see attached picture.) Moreover, other strange behaviour can be noticed after F4 is pressed. For example, minimizing a window to tray and opening it again results into a new window of the particular application to be opened, or when a desktop icon is clicked, all icons to the top-left are selected. All of the problems persist from the point the F4 key is pressed until the laptop is restarted or until Shift key is pressed (and it starts again every time F4 is pressed). All other Fx keys are working fine. I have already tried changing the bios hotkey option to "disabled" and then back to "enabled" (the state where Fn key does not need to be pressed to access special Fx functionalities), but the strange behaviour of F4 is back once the hotkey option is enabled again. I also tried plugging an external keyboard - the F4 and Alt+F4 works ok when pressed there. I would like to make the F4 key work as it used to. What can I do to resolve the issue?

Hi, I am currently struggling with delayed display of letters I type and wuerd behaviour. Sometimes it lags for a little bit longer (on a given letter), sometimes it does not - but it happens all the time. Also when I press ctrl-shift-left arrow to select a word - nothing happens. I do it again - one word is selected. I do it again - two word are selected. Then I press ctrl-shift-right arrow - oops, another word to the left is selected. It works both ways this way - like there is one-step-lag in that matter.Another thing which might be helpful is that after typing a word, bunc of letters or anything the "writing marker" (vertical line) does not blink for a moment, and after a while it begins. I do not know whether it may point to faulty behaviour, althought I have not spotted this in any of the PC's I have ever had.This behaviour happens both on the internal and external keyboard - it is not hardware.Thank you for your help.

I am experiencing strange intermittent behaviour with my keyboard mainly when using excel spreadheets where the screen zooms in and out, multiple cells are highlighted when trying to enter data, data is copied into seperate sheets & different characters are entered to the key being pressed.
The zooming in and out issue also happens when using internet explorer.

I have searched the forums for similar issues and one post suggests updating the bios, but I already have the latest version. I have also checked that my drivers are uptodate,

Any help appreciated.


A:Re: Satellite Pro L870-172 Intermittent Keyboard Behaviour

Just one question: is it possible that you are using touchpad while working with excel or other software?
As far as I know this notebook?s touchpad supports some additional features like TOUCHPAD with GESTURE. So possibly you used an touchpad?s zoom feature without knowing that?

Please test it with external USB mouse?

Additionally I recommend you checking this Toshiba document how to change the Synaptics touchpad settings in Windows 8?

Hello guys.

I shall kindly ask for your help as so far any method of troubleshooting has failed me.

So whenever I enter a game, after a few seconds I start getting visual artifacts (black lines, etc). That might be ocasionally followed by general audio stuttering, as well as mouse and keyboard going completely undetected anymore by the system, even though, after this happens, I can still hear the sound playing in the background, apparently the system is doing fine.

My system also freezes pretty much completely when I use the Prime95 FFT test. I know Prime95 puts a lot of stress on the system, but complete hang up should not happen as far as I know?

Another thing I have noticed is download speeds are sometimes extremely slow (definitely slower than usual), even lagging on YT stream and such.

Event Viewer isn't helping me isolate the issue either.

PC was running fine and smooth until this started happening. Didn't change anything in it's configuration hardware or software (until this happened and I decided to format).

So far I:

- Reformatted my PC (running Windows 7).
- Made sure all my drivers are up to date.
- Tested my RAM with memtest x86 , turned up clean, 0 errors.
- Cleaned my PC of dust >_>.
- Made sure temperatures are in range.
- Set back CPU to default frequency (OCd it to 3.0 from 2.5 GHz / core, but this happened one or two years ago, everything went fine until now)
- Tried underclocking my GPU
- Tested with Prime95 FFT Test, PC hung up.

Hi, pls forgive the length of the report - but it may be useful...

Yesterday my keyboard/mouse started misbehaving. The mouse would often, but not always, bring up the properties window if I double-clicked to open a folder. When I left-clicked to open a menu, the menu appeared but quickly disappeared, I don't have time to select anything! The keyboard at the same time started to alternate between working properly and messing about. E.g. only some keys work, and they sometimes, er, DO things rather than type letters (like make the IExlporer go to full screen). Also if I hit the "a" key, I'd often get an "?" instead, and some keys gave nothing at all.

So, with great difficulty, I turned on the on-screen keyboard and saw that the keyboard flashes between normal mode and (I don't know what to call it, but..) "Alt mode"(?) where only a handful of keys are operational - including the Alt and, i think, Ctrl keys.

When my mouse is at rest, the keyboard tends to spend it's time in this odd mode. When the mouse is moving the keyboard goes to QWERTY mode.

So now my PC is practically unusable (I'm writing this on someone else's). I have to be constantly moving the mouse to type anything or to select menus.

I checked mouse & keyboard properties. Sticky keys isn't on - and I can't see anything untoward about any of the onscreen properties of the keyboard or mouse. I disconnected the keyboard and mouse and used different ones but the proble... Read more

Today I upgraded to Windows 10. Everything seems to be working ok except my keyboard's strange behaviour.

When the Fn Key is NOT pressed:

(1) The keys 1,2 are not working at all
(2) The keys 3,4 adjust the volume
(3) Space key not working at all
(4) Function Keys behave normally (F1, F2 etc)

When the Fn Key is pressed:

(1) Keys 1,2,3,4 work as nymbers
(2) Space key works as space
(3) Function keys are doing nothing

I tried uninstalling everything related to toshiba as well as pressing Fn for 10 seconds, Fn+Ctrl, Fn-Scroll lock and any other combination I could think of.

In the BIOS there is no option to disable the function keys.
In the HWSETUP there is no option as well

I would really welcome any suggestions. Thanx for your time.

Hello everybody,I have a slightly obscure problem with my fan which occurred for the first time about a week ago then again twice today.  The problem is that my fan suddenly goes to full speed only to immediately afterward die entirely, then it sounds like he tries to recover but quickly goes to full speed and the whole process repeats. One cycle takes about 5 Sec. and it keeps doing this even if I reboot in between. After quite some repetitions (i guess of order 20-30) he keeps running on the highest stable fan speed for a few minutes and then shuts down, which seems to be indefinite. The first time happened while running Windows whereas the other two times happened within Linux, in neither case high fan speed was required (typing or surfing where all activities). In Linux, i have XSensors installed which allows accessing some fan speed data. It turns out that the full speed bursts are depicted by 65535 RPM which then goes down to 0 RPM. The permanent highspeed state was once at 9500 RPM and the other time at 7800 RPM. It seems that 7800 RPM runs longer than 9500 RPM before it drops to 0 RPM and stays there.  There is nothing specifically which I could identify as an origin of this behavior, but since this is my working machine I am seriously worried. Also the sound it makes in the initial "burst"-phase really is annoying. I really have no clue what to do so any help is welcome. Thanks a lot in advance,Michael

Hello All I have Lenovo G50 80 laptop; it?s a full 15.6 inch laptop with DVD drive, full keyboard, touch pad. Last year i started having problem with laptop, as touchpad stopped working the arrow cursor got stuck on screen, and will only work again if i press any key on keyboard. It will only work for few seconds and minutes then again stuck. Also the arrow or delete key stayed in loop, whenever i open anything to type, the cursor in text field kept moving to left or keep deleting the text. The service center guy told me that it is due to Keyboard and touchpad getting short due to moisture or something, they changed the keyboard. Now after one year again i am facing same problem. Same thing happening again and again. It?s very irritating. It seems there is some hardware or design fault in the way Lenovo has designed their keyboard and touchpad. I live in Mumbai, so may be due to monsoon there is moisture in air and it may be affecting this design. But again i have never seen this issue in any other laptop brands of competitor. Can anyone please help me how can i fix this on my own, as laptop is not under warranty and i don?t want to keep changing laptop every year. May be someone with hardware repair knowledge can help me here. Can I short or cut or sholder any cables, any circuit, I don?t know just help me guys to fix this. Anyone from Lenovo listening please have a look it a big problem. Thanks

Hi! I've got Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13 Silver (https://www.alza.cz/EN/lenovo-ideapad-yoga-13-silver-d375124.htm), and while I am quite content with the device, my keyboard stopped working. I was wondering whether any of you might know and suggest an online reseller (official or otherwise), where I could get hold of a replacement keyboard. Now, I suppose backlit keyboard versions of newer Yoga laptops will not work I guess, will they? From what I have read Yoga 13 Silver does not have the slot required for backlit, but aside that, will the keyboard function and will it fit (dimension-wise)? If so, what is the voltage and current required? Would soldering a small battery to the backlit cable be a good idea (I accept the fact that I wouldn't be able to regulate it)? Thank you in advance!ck

Hey guys!

I recently got a Casio keyboard, with a new MIDI cable.

I'm a music artist and I'm totally new with this 'keyboard-to-computer-via-MIDI' stuff.

I don't know how to connect my Casio Keyboard to my computer with a MIDI cable. I've mostly been using Mixcraft's music library, but I want to start something new with my new keyboard.

Can someone PLEASE tell me how I can connect my keyboard to my laptop via MIDI?

I've looked at other forum posts and contacted a few music artists..........they had nothing.

Please help!

Is there any possibility or any other replacement for changing the keyboard

Hey there, I found a similar topic but unfortunately, there was not a final response that solved my problem. I own a Yoga 13 Ideapad without the backlight function, unfortunately. Recently I watched a video of a keyboard replacement and I would like to do that with mine in order to replace it with a backlight keyboard. The problem is that I am not sure if my model features the needed connections. The model number is: 219159342273 if that helps.  I found backlight keyboards described as "original" Lenovo parts for about 30?. Is that realistic or fake?Thank you for your help!!!

Hi guys, I bought this laptop as per description, I bought it refurbished since I wanted a cheap and light laptop to carry around.The laptop worked flawlessly for 8-9 month then suddenly it started to have problems. At the beginning it started to freeze when using it (screen freezes and that's it), I had to power it off with the power button and then restart it.After 2-3 months of this it started to refuse booting, sometimes it boot, sometimes it doesn't; all the LED are on (power and HD) but the screen is off, it doesn't even show the BIOS screen. The laptop boot about 30% of the times I try to start it, the other 70% nothing but the LED as described above, sometimes it freezes during use but again all of this is completely random, I have no idea why it happens. What I know is this:- I'm pretty sure it's not the LCD panel, I tried to connect an external monitor but it's the same erratic behavior all over again- I'm pretty sure it's not the HD since I tried with a new one, same story...- According to he LENOVO user manual it can be one of these two things (in order of probability): 1 RAM Failure - 2 Motherboard failure. Well, I hope it's the RAM of course (because it's 30 Euros and easy to change), if it's the MB I can pretty much kiss it goodbye because it would be cheaper to buy an other one than buying the MB.Now it has been working for two hours running Memtest86+ to test the RAM, I'm already at the second pass but it detected no errors: "Pass com...

Hi! I was doing my homework when suddenly the letters i typed in the keyboard started showing wrong letters and also two letters at the same time. I have a HP Pavilion 15-n034so and I've already done everything that Hp support said to do and also restored the laptop but it's still not working. For example when I type the letter P it becomes po and when i type the number 3 it becomes 3l. I really need your help to fix this!

I have an Acer 5750-6634 laptop that is working great except for one problem. When I press certain keys(the 9 key and up arrow key, specifically) sometimes do not work. For instance, the up arrow key, if pressed 5 times, usually only works 4 times. The same with the 9 key. Any idea what the problem is or how to fix it? The keyboard has been like this since I bought the computer.

A:What is wrong with my keyboard?

As the fault on the problem keys is intermittent then the keyboard is clearly faulty and has a bad contact under the problem keys. As it has been like that since new why didn't you return it under the guarantee or was it second hand?

Try blowing out the keyboard with a can of compressed air as it may just be due to dirt and dust build up.

Hey everyone. I have noticed two problems with my keyboard. I accidently spilled a little water on it earlier but as far as I know, either none or very little got in cause I wiped it up quickly. That and it is not showing signs of shorting out like certain keys not working. However, the caps lock has quit working and the paste shortcut Ctrl+V isn't working. The light doesn't even come on when I try to use the Caps Lock. It is a Microsoft Internet Keyboard. Could this be the result of an outdated driver or something? Help!
