Laptop Keyboard driving me crazy

Q: Laptop Keyboard driving me crazy

I bought this new laptop and now whn I type faster or put my fingers relaxed and then type quickly.. every 2 or 3 letters I try to type the cursor or jumps back 4 or 5 letters or deletes the whole or part of a word and then starts from there or the cursor ends up in another tab or table etc or the window suddenly gets minimized(it is not a virus.. it is the damn keyboard). I tried typing slowly to see if my fingers hit some other button by mistake but I don't see it .. even if it did.. what kinda button on the whole keyboard makes the cursor jump few lines back or few letters back or delete half of a word and start there. I really had to stop and type this extremely slowly like as if I was typing on a blackberry or something.. it is ****ing annoying as hell.. do I have to return this piece of crap now???

btw if you are interested it is a ACER ASPIRE AS5315-2848 LAPTOP PC(2.1GHz/1GB).

Is it possible that you are without realizing it, letting part of you hand touch the touch pad while you are typing? This is a fairly common thing with touch pads on laptops. I have always disabled my touchpad and used a laptop mouse on my laptops for this reason and the fact that I don't like touchpads also.

Sounds like you need a new keyboard.

Try a different OS to see if the problem goes away. If it doesn't, it is a hardware problem.

Two days ago my keyboard started doing this:

_"T6he 6house about 6h blocks down 5got 5g 5green bus6hes._"

what I actually typed:

"The house about 6 blocks down got 5 green bushes."

Also my control key now opens my windows media player. Worst of all, every time I type an "s" it opens a help tab!!! Imagine trying to type when every time you hit the s you would open a new tab!

I have a Compaq Presario 2570US laptop. Of late, whenever I type something, whether in MS Word, Search Engine Search Bar or even in this message etc, my computer DELETES (backspaces) what I type on its own. Sometimes it deletes a letter, a couple words or every darn thing I type.

Also when I am in Explorer, it would "back" to a previous page until it gets to the first page I was on.

When there are no windows open, the computer continuosly "beeps" like it is trying to backspace something.

I thought it was a virus, but newly installed Norton found nothing. I also thought it was a hijacker, but Xoft Spy found nothing.

I "restored" my system with the Restore System Discs and everything was normal/quiet for about a week and a half, or so, and then the problem started again.

Really frustratung, cause I cannot type what I want and I cant seem to find the problem

Hello Ralanders and welcome to TSF...

Couple of items you need in order to begin our process:

Please print out or copy this page to Notepad. Make sure to work through the fixes in the exact order it is mentioned below. If there's anything that you don't understand, ask your question(s) before proceeding with the fixes. You should not have any open browsers when you are following the procedures below.

Please download HijackThis http://www.greyknight17.com/spy/HijackThis.exe - this program will help us determine if there are any spyware/malware on your computer. Create a folder at C:\HJT and move HijackThis.exe there. Double click on the program to run it.

1. If it gives you an intro screen, just choose 'Do a system scan and save a logfile'.
2. If you don't get the intro screen, just hit Scan and then click on Save log.
3. Get HijackThis Analyzer http://www.greyknight17.com/spy/KRC%...20Analyzer.zip and save it to the same folder as the hijackthis.log file. Run HijackThis Analyzer and type in 'y' if you agree. The 'result.txt' file will open up in Notepad. Copy the whole result.txt log and post it in the forum. You don't need to post the original hijackthis.log (unless we ask for it). Do not fix anything in HijackThis since they may be harmless.

If you have a fast internet connection (broadband), run an online virus scan at TrendMicro http://uk.trendmicro-europe.com/ente...all_launch.php. Just follow the instructions on the site to run the online scan.... Read more

Hi everyone, I am new to this site I hope you can help. For about the last 6 months my laptop keeps shutting down. First I kept getting messages saying windows is closing down this could be due to recent hardware installed(even though i have not installed anything) other messages saying that are checking file fat 32, other times it just shuts down with no messages, then i have problems trying to get it to come on again, on one occasion i turned it on and off 10 times, eventually it came back on. sometimes i can get it on for 2 days then it shuts down again. I havent been able to get it on for 3 days. I have tried holding down the on button, checked that theres no lose plugs cables, taken battery out put it back in again, re booting.
someone said take the back off and check for dust but i don't have the small screwdriver to open it. I have had 2 tech guys in work look at it, they said there is nothing wrong. PC world want 120 just to look at it. is there something i can do before i start paying out ridiculous s. It's a compaq presario 700 i have had it 4 years. I not technical at all, so if you can help please keep your answers simple. thanks.

Difficult to diagnose this from your description. I have seen Dell equipment behave like this and require a fix to the power control board but that is not quaranteed.
Avoid PC World and have a local shop look at it - the problem is that a new PC is not going to cost the earth today. If you need a totally relaible repair shop (in the east midlands) you could PM me.

I did a format and installation of Win98SE on a IBM Thinkpad 1400. After the installation it was clear that windows did not detect any video drivers. Since the owner could not find any driver disks. I went to the IBM webiste, downloaded a driver for the display adapter and followed their directions. This did not change the appearance. So I downloaded a video driver. This at least let the size of the display above 480 x 640. However, the only time the font is not fuzzy is at a display setting of 1024 x 768, however, the pictures are still not clear.

I ran a quick report from Everett and have posted it below. Any suggestions?

A:Laptop monitor driving me crazy!

All LCD screens need to be run at their "native resolution" for best clarity.

Probably that is 1024 x 768 in your case.

But you only have 8 bit (256 color) set. That will cause degradation of images.

Try 16 bit.

Hi, I am new to this forum. Thank you for having me. I have a weird one for any of you computer gurus out there, a real brainteaser.

I have an HP Pavilion notebook model zt3000, running on XP. This problem occurred about six months ago, but I'm just getting around to fixing it now

Upon startup one day, the screen suddenly went black. However, it is not black all the time. If I hit F8 it will sometimes scroll some white numbers. It also flashes brightly if I do a hard boot shutdown. In short, I'm certain the screen itself is good.

It is not the hard drive either, as far as I can tell. I have taken the drive and put it in another laptop, and it runs fine.

Upon suggestion of a friend, I just replaced the video inverter board. No change.

I have read on other boards about older XP laptops sometimes having black display problems with larger, replacement HD's, if that drive is larger than 100GB. The drive I have in there now is 160GB (I think the orig. was around 40GB), but I ran it for months with no problem, then all the sudden -- POOF! -- black screen, and it has been that way ever since. Supposedly, or allegedly, you have to partition the new drive so that no single partition is larger than 100GB.

Does anyone have any insight into this weird dilemma? I really like this unit, and would like to get it up and running again.

I am willing to spend the time to diagnose and repair this on my own. I just need to run the proper diagnostics to find out what is broke... Read more

A:Help! Black screen on HP laptop driving me crazy!

I don't know about some of the older HP laptops, but a lot of the newer ones, especially the dv series, have video cards that were not soldered properly and can cause intermittent video issues eventually dying altogether. Does the BIOS screen display properly, then the screen goes black? Or does nothing ever come up?

I may have mentioned in the other forum that my games would run if I ran them just off the battery of my laptop. That has changed as of late and for some magical reason, it's now crashing no matter how I play my games.

I'm looking into a new power cable for my laptop.
Would that fix anything, or just be a waste of money? Is this like a motherboard issue or what?

Hi all, new here. I don't know where to begin so I'll tell you from when I tried to uninstall Nero 11....
I had the trial version of Nero 11 on my laptop and realised that it took up over 1gb of space, and it was about 6 months past the trial date, lol. So I tried to uninstall it and omg what a farce! I could not uninstall it using the control panel> add/remove programs so I downloaded one of those programs which could help do it for you. I think it was CCleaner, or something like that..

While I was trying to uninstall Nero 11 I decided I was going to do a disk cleanup, and because I was in a clean up mood I decided to do a defragmentation (however you spell it) because I had recently read that it's good to do them at least once a month. It was my first time in 2/3 years of having my laptop :/

Somewhere down the line I think the defrag crashed so I restarted my laptop and googled how long it usually took. Some said 1-2 hours so I decided to do it when I went to bed, and leave my laptop on running doing the thing...

I woke up and my laptop was off (fgs lol) so I wasn't sure if it defraged it...

I then noticed my laptop froze,so I had to hold the power button and turn it off like that..

I started up again, did the same thing. Restarted and repeated for about 5 more times before I used my brain and started up in safe mode. I don't know if it's because I started up in safe mode or not but it seems to not crash..

The problem is very similar to others reported previously but I think that the cause is different.
Sometimes when a key is pressed, a random character that does not correspond to the one I pressed is printed on the screen (it could be more than one and/or they are printed continuously) like when a liquid is spilled on the keyboard.
I have noticed that this happens specially when the laptop is left for a couple of hours without activity. Rebooting (and turning it on after some days), unplugging the battery, formatting does not work and I am pretty sure that is not a virus or liquid spilled problem.
However the problem is solved when I run a memory diagnostic with the Memtest86+ software; after one or two passes I reboot the computer and the problem is gone, but if I leave it alone for some time the problem returns.

I will appreciate any help regarding to detecting and solving the problem; if more information is needed please let me know.

Thanks in advance.

You probably need to replace the keyboard - they are replaceable in most if not all all laptops. They are however not cheap and have to be order specifcally for your laptop model.

You can also buy an external PS/2 or USB keyboard and use that instead - this is the cheaper solution but maybe not the most convenient one.

Relatively ignorant on this problem. I have a gigabyte GA 7zx motherboard with an 800 duron chip. Have a PNY nvidia graphics card and have recently put in a Diamond DT-688 sound card.

I haven't a clue what this means since I don't know how to put a disk in a harddisk. Any ideas?

Well its probably reffering to some kind of storage device you are using, if you have any beside One EIDE harddisk...

Hi guys, my keyboard is constantly turning on and off the shift key on its own in an unpredictable manner. It makes typing extremely annoying and interferes with operating windows on my laptop.

Not sure if it's the laptop hardware itself is the issue or something else like a virus etc, because the problem is replicated using the on-screen keyboard and external keyboard as well.

I've ran an Microsoft Security Essentials antivirus scan and everything seems to be OK. Any help or advice will be highly appreciated. The laptop is a LEnovo Thinkpad E420, thanks.

A:Laptop keyboard is acting crazy

Could be due to sticking keys. First thing I'd suggest is to turn the computer upside down and firmly tap the underside to try dislodging debris which might be under the keys. Laptop keyboards are capable of catching lots of unwanted treasures inside.

I'm having a problem loading the motherboard software - using the express installer. Its an Intel board that claims to have USB 2.0 type ports, however after I had the OS installed etc. I pluged in my iPod only to get an error saying I had a fast device plugged into a slow port.
I then remembered I had forgotten to install the MB software, aso I tried to install using the Express installer CD that came with the board. This got about 50% through and then put the system into shutdown, upon re-start you get to the windows start up screen and then nothing, you never reach the login screen.
So I decided to start at the beginning again and re-loaded the OS. So I was back getting the same USB error. Then I tried installing the MB software manually (as recommended on the Intel site) but again I have the same issue. So to get anywhere I need to install the OS again.
What am I doing wrong?
Do I need to get the MB software loaded first? and if so how do I wipe the HD in order to do that.
Or
With the OS installed how do I install the MB stuff and get the USB ports functioning properly?
 

A:its driving me crazy!!!

The reason why you are getting the message is because your motherboard might not support USB 2.0 speed.

Read this forum http://forums.techguy.org/t340223.html and you should be able to find out whether your motherboard can support USB 2.0.

Where do I begin...

Well first, I had my homepage continually being changed to "about:blank" but i think i fixed that.

Next, every once ina while when I will just type in a website (hotmail, google, etc) it will redirect me to adult pages and popups one after another.

Besides that, a constant problem is that when I click on a link in IE, the program freezes for at least 10 seconds, with the hourglass mouse, and the little IE flag thing up in the right corner doesn't do that motion thing it does when loading a page, until after the program freezes for a bit.

FYI: I have done repeated virus scans, and scans using SpyBot search and destroy, Xoft Spy, NoAdware, and have used CWShredder (whihch I believe got rid of the about:blank homepage).

Ok, so i built this computer about 9-10 months ago. i have had this problem from the very first boot up and i have yet to figure out what it is.

I realized it for the first time when i started playing WoW. Every few minutes, my computer freezes up and the sound starts stuttering. This will go on for 4-5 seconds then normal play will resume. This gets very annoying, especially in PvP.

I get the same problem with all the high-end games i play: Half-life 2, UT 2k4, etc. I can play the original half-life and other older games with no problems at all.

Also, when i try to rip music CDs to my harddrive, using either windows media or iTunes, my sound starts stuttering like it does in-game and i get the infamous blue screen of death.

The BSoD gives me this error:

STOP: 0x0000009c (0x00000004, 0x80545FF0, 0xB2000000, 0x00070F0F)

im not quite sure what that means...

My specs:
AMD Athelon 3400+
GeForce 6800
1 GB of Geil ultra RAM

Please someone help!! This problem is driving me crazy!

Thanks.

Recently I was running my desktop with 1gig ram (2x512), since the pc is used as "server" for small business purpose of running company software on sql i thought i could boost speed by maxing out memory.

So I bought 4 1gig chips and installed them, everything seemed to be working okay until ever so frequently the blue screen of death would show up and the computer would restart automatically.

I ran memtest86 and the chips passed, however in windows memory diagnostic they failed the LRAND test. I ran it all night and failed 80 plus times, all four chips.

I later found out that 32 bit systems cannot read more than 3.62 gigs, so i removed two 1 gig chips and now running on 2x512 + 2x1024 which brings the ram to 3gigs now. After running windows server 2003 for five minutes, bam! the same thing all over again. blue screen of death showing "irql_not_less_or_equal"

I know the RAM is the issue but why and how can i fix it is what i need to know. someone mentioned it might be the motherboard, but can that be the issue if only the 2 512mb chips work with no problems?

Please help.
 

A:RAM is driving my PC crazy!

You'll need to check each chip individual by having them installed 1gb at a time. I'd put the two 512mb chips back in and then one of the 1gb chips and see how that does for a while, etc.

While this is happening, it also freezes my computer and mouse for maybe 3-5 seconds. This happens sporadically, sometimes continuously for 8-10 times in a row. I have noticed sometimes that if I leave my mouse sit for a while that it will stop and as soon as I move the mouse it starts again. I notice it mostly online, but it does do it off line also sometimes. Please help!

Several months ago when I shut the computer down the light indicating hard drive activity would go out but the power light would stay on. I turned the power off using the switch on the power supply. When I attempted to restart the computer it would not boot up. I decided to do a clean install using the OEM disk that I purchased when I built the computer several years ago. I went through the steps of doing a clean install and the installation would get to the "completing installation" step and after a couple of minutes the screen would go black. I tried to use the Windows disk to do a start up repair several times. The process would show that Windows 7 was installed and all of the repair sets were successfully. I tried new hard drives and downloaded an ISO file from Microsoft. I read someplace that the ASUS A8N SLI Deluxe, which was the motherboard I was using, would not run windows 7. I had used this motherboard for about 8 years running window 7 but I decided to replace everything except the video card and solve my problem. Now with a new motherboard, new CPU, new memory and a new power supply, I am still having the same problem. The installation is normal until it attempts the last restart and it dies. I have decided it is me that is causing the problem but I do not know what I am doing wrong and must be repeating my error each time I try to do a clean install.
Any suggestions will be appreciated.

do this :

do you have these 2 free programs ?

adaware se version 1.5

update ,scan and fix anything found .



spybot search and destroy

update ,scan and fix anything found ,hit the immunize button at the end .


Go here and do an online virus scan.

Be sure and put a check in the box by "Auto Clean" before you do the scan. If it finds anything that it cannot clean have it delete it or make a note of the exact file name and file location so you can delete it yourself.

Go here and do another online virus scan.

reboot

and post a new HJT log .

Evening friends

So - i have a dvd burner, managed somehow! to burn a few half baked home videos using Ulead and Pinnicle software...but im at a complete loss regarding how much you can fill on one of these disks, be it dvd-r or + etc.... and whats the best disk to mess about with ie, to rewrite things over and over while i get to grips with editing my camcorder footage and checking the playback quality....Does it take a while to erase disks...why cant they be like videotapes and simply go over old footage? or can they? please help?

While im hear, not asking too much i know, but its fustrating..i have the gear but just cant seem to get the results.

I simply want to put all my vhs stuff onto disks...i want to re-edit my stuff and put on titles..ok so i have the software to do this...back to pinnicle and ulead 9.0...but like everything computer wise...sort one problem out up comes another.

Please tell me, best method ( in english ) if i want say a 2hour disk of home footage..putting on a couple of my newly edited movies and outtake clips...what disk is the best for quality. And can it be done easliy what problems will i be facing...already it comes up with, 'this disk is not empty...etc' drives me mad.

cheers
and

A:driving me a little crazy

Us a RW disc for testing, they can be written too many times.. Only takes a short time to erase.

Time wise the amount of footage you can put on disc depends on the bitrate. You could if you wanted get up to 7+ hours on a single 4.7 GB DVD using a very low bitrate.

Low bitrate makes a lower quality video though. There's a calculator here to help you determine bitrate: http://www.videohelp.com/calc.htm

For VHS 6000 is more than sufficient to maintain quality, that will give you about 1 1/2 hours of video on a single DVD. You can lower it, get yourself that RW and find out what's acceptable to you.

When I try other pages they seem to work fine, This is very frustrating as the only way to solve it sometimes is to restart the computer so I can get on the page I want. Has anyone got any ideas what this could be? I use Google Chrome if that makes a difference.

Then I noticed in my preview screen of the e-mail on the same account this message:
"Message could not be displayed
Outlook Express encountered an unexpected problem while displaying this message. Check your computer for low memory or low disk space and try again."
And a little box comes up with this error message:

The other 2 accounts come through and send just fine. Anybody know what the problem is?

The usual fix for this problem is to make another Hotmail account identical to the one that's not working right then delete the corrupt one.

Click here to download the LOP uninstaller. Close all browser windows and run the uninstaller.

When it is finished restart your computer.

Hi all. I've been reading this site for quite a while and have solved many computer issues with your advice. However, this one is driving me crazy. I have a Dell 1501 Inspiron Laptop. Here's the issues I'm having.

1) Keyboard Lag (on and off) 2-3 second lag
2) Can not shut down, restart, or hibernate XP from the start menu. I have to use the power button to shut down.
3) Screen saver will not work
4) Internet explorer 8 will stop responding after being online for 5-10 mins

Suspecting a virus/malaware these are the programs I have already run:
1) Symantic Anti-Virus
2) Spybot Search and destroy
3) Malwarebytes
4) SmitFraudFix
5) Combofix
6) Superantispyware
7) AVG 2011 Free edition
8) CCleaner

I am out of ideas. Please help. The next step I would have tried was Dr. Web Cureit.
Thanks

A:XP Driving me Crazy.

Have you tried a clean install?

The symptoms you describe...don't seem to be typical malware symptoms, IMO...while they do seem to indicate that your O/S is not performing as it should.
