The notebook that is having the problem is an HP 2000-2b19WM

When i turn on the notebook it would ask me to log in but none of the keys would work so i would have to press the button that allows me to go back to where i can choose log into another users account. Then i would click on my account
at which time all the keys on the keyboard would work except 5, 6, b, n, and the delete key. I reinstalled the keybaords software but that did not make the keys work. I looked online and on this website for solutions to the problem but none of the 4 or 5 solutions that i read about worked for my problem. I finally wiped the hard drive and reinstalled windows 8 but the problem is still there. I wondered if something got under the keys of the keybaord themselves so i took a couple off and looked and there was nothing. I pressed the keys while their cover was off and it still did not work. If the solution you tell me works for me, tell me how come wiping the drive and then reinstalling Windows 8 did not fix the problem. I googled my notebooks name and found the drivers that are avaliable on HP's website. I clicked on Driver - Keyboard, Mouse and Input Drivers. But then it only gave me 2 options: The first was HP Wireless Button Driver. The second was Synaptics Touchpad Driver. But there was nothing there about the keybaord. I wasn't sure if they forgot to mention the keyborad in the title and description or if the thing that said "Driver- Keyboard, Mouse and Drivers" was something they had for all notebooks weather or not they acutally had keyboaard drivers but because it could not hurt to download it and try it, I have downloaded it and i tried to install it: after i tried the message i got was " The best driver software for your device is already installed." I don't know what to do next. Please help me.

As I wrote in the title, my Shift and Alt keys stopped working for keyboard shortcuts. However, the Shift key still works when capitalizing letters.

I've been dealing with this problem off/on for the past two weeks and haven't been able to figure it out. I've gone into Ease of Access features and turned on/off all of the available options (Mouse Keys, Sticky Keys, Toggle Keys, Filter Keys). I've pressed Shift for 8 seconds, and pressed it 5 times, and still haven't been able to correct it.

Thank you in advance for any help offered.

Possibly helpful additional information:
I've got a Spanish/Latin American keyboard layout installed in addition to the US English keyboard layout. I toggle back and forth with Left Alt + Shift (which is how I noticed my Shift key stopped working).
I play a game whose controls rely on a lot of Shift key pressing and holding.

When was the last time you used a can of air cleaner on the keyboard? If it isn't from contact wear often keyboards tend to get loaded up with dust and debris!

One example of that is having any snacks onhand around a pc where little bits get passed along from your fingers onto and under the keys themselves. Keyboards are known to get loaded up fast with any foods present!

I had a problem with my laptop which is certain key on my keyboard is not functioning. The weird is, it happened without a reason. because after I shutdown doing my work when I turn it on again, I discovered my "s", "d", "g", "h", "\", "m", " left shift", "caps lock" and "~" key did not work at all. I try taking the key off, cleaning underneath, but nothing seems to be working. After that I try to use usb keyboard and it seems the key can be entered. So I thought my hardware is the problem. than I replace into the new one, but still having the same problem. I already waste my money buying new keyboard. Does any one happen to know what sort of problem this is and how I would go about fixing it? Is it related to the registry. My laptop is Acer aspire 4740G, ram 4GB, processor i3 2.4GHz. I hope someone can help me to solve this problem.

Hi guys, Something really strange started happening two days ago. Out of the blue the following keys stopped working: GHBackspaceWindows [email protected]' The laptop is a couple of years old and a bit dusty, so I took it to the local shop to get the keyboard replaced and cleaned. Seemed to be working fine when I left the shop. Then, a little while ago the space key and P stopped. Five minutes later they started working again but ctrl stopped and N is temperamental. I haven't spilt anything on it or knocked it. Any ideas what's going on?

I have a Dell 7737 laptop and from time to time it develops a firmware glitch where random keys stop working for both BIOS Setup and Operating Systems. After such thing happens neither shutdown (Full shutdown / Fast Boot disabled) nor restart get the keyboard back to a normal state. At this point the only workarround is to disconnect the AC power cord and then either drain the battery or physically remove it.
This laptop's battery cover is not designed for daily removal and it is starting to get loose because of this BIOS bug.
I am running BIOS version A14 but this bug was present since I purchased the laptop with BIOS version A07. Sometimes I cannot even type my password because the random keys that stop working match those it uses.
Please Dell could you provide a BIOS hotfix for this annoying issue?

Hi there

I have this issue of what I thought it was 'chattering' but it seems not to be the case (my keyboard got replaced, as well as the entire casing).

In short, sometimes when I'm typing, keys will reproduce several times (I hit a and get aaaaaaaaaa). It often triggers back 2 back too, e.g. I hit a and get aaaaaaaa, then hit backspace and backspace keeps going multiple times. There also seems to be a very short pauze between the first a and the next aaaaaaaaaa's that appear very fast on the screen. It's also with a lot of buttons, not only 1 or 2 but at least 8.

After some Googling, I thought this was 'chattering', so I sent my laptop back to MSI. They replaced the keyboard and the casing, yet to no avail. I got the laptop back and the problem is still present.

What I have tried:
- formatting laptop, installed clean Windows 10
- sending it back to company to get keyboard and casing replaced
- updating keyboard driver (the latest version was already installed)

I was hoping anyone would have had some experience with this issue, be it W10 related or whatever... It would be weird if it was a hardware issue, since the hardware got replaced. I am getting quite desperate to be honest.
Laptop info:
W10 Home 64 bit
MSI ge72 2qc apache
Intel i7 processor
NVIDIA GTX965m
8GB RAM
126GB SSD

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Hi goodlad,

You should try an external keyboard with the system. If external keyboard works fine then you should consider replacing the internal keyboard.

As due to usage and time keys stops responding. However if the similar issue occurs with the external keyboard then it might be a software related issue.

This is an odd issue that I have not found anyone else having. I am not sure as to the cause of it. 

Basically, when I press certain pairs of keys, the computer acts as though another key is being pressed as well. 
Some examples:
q+s: qws
w+d: wed
r+y: ryu
k+u: kui
l+i: lio

There are others, as well as ones with 3 keys triggering a fourth. They follow no general pattern (although wd, qs, ku, and li are the same pattern
on the keyboard, that pattern doesn't cause a similar response on other keys, like ef, rg, th, yj, etc.)

This problem has persisted as long as I have had this laptop. I got it used on Amazon. It said that, in terms of condition, it just had a few minor
scratches and such, which is accurate. 

This occurs every time the keys are pressed at the same time (in fact, while typing this, I was constantly having to correct typos such as "everyu",
"lioke",  and "whiole".)

Hello there. Yesterday, I bought the Ideapad 310-15isk, and it's phenomenal in many aspects. However, I'm a bit bothered by the extensive keyboard this laptop has, most importantly, the pagination commands on the arrow keys. I've been meaning to find a solution to disable those and just make them work on the Numpad since it's really bothersome to type on and then go all the way back because of the return pagination key. Is there any solution for this to unbind those commands only on the arrow keys?

Hey guys,

I'm having a really big problem with my keyboard. I'm running windows 7. The problem started about four days ago, I've searched for various ways to solve this problem but I couldn't find any.

The issue is that randomly, my keyboard will stop typing keys and every time I hit a key, instead of typing a key, it would act as if I was hitting a shortcut. Such as, when it happens i hit the "F" key and the tools options come up. This happens on every windows even on MSN messenger, I hit my keys and it hits shortcut keys for the window I'm on.

I would be using my computer for a while and the keys would work fine but then a little later, somethings 30 minutes sometimes an hour or two, randomly they turn into shortcut keys. Every key i hit, I tried a new keyboard but it seems to happen also. I don't get the issue, I've scanned fully using malwareBytes, MCAffee, and Advanced system pro, but it's still happening. It's really frustrating and annoying when it does happen. I've turned my keyboard off and on, re sync'd. I'm starting to lean more towards it being a virus or something that messed with my settings somehow.

Malwayre Bytes did find something while scanning

A:Keyboard keys randomly turn into shortcut keys

I would also like to add that, when this occurs. I have to restart my computer for the keyboard to work correctly. It's wireless & I've tried a wired keyboard also, it's the same issue.

Also when this happens, while on the internet. Every time I click a link or the internet like "home" "news" anything at all on the internet even an image, it won't go to it but instead it will download the data into my computer... It's very strange & I'm completely stumped on what to do. Or to even search this on google for other similar issues, I don't even know how I would go around to search that. Or what I would type in the search bar. This happens with both Firefox & google chrome. Even outside the internet in just my desktop, it's impossible to type even on notepad.

I have a Dell Inspiron 11 3000 series 2 in 1 laptop and recently (within the past few days), some of the keys on my keyboard are not working when I start up the laptop. After my laptop has been on for a few minutes, they seem to work fine but they still randomly stop working for a few seconds at a time. For instance, they are working just fine right now. The keys that do this are all close together on the keyboard (which I feel like that has something to do with it) and are listed below.

I should also point out that the keys are not broken or loose. I'm only guessing that this is a hardware problem and that it can be fixed if I have tools or something, but I'm not a tech wizard, so I don't know for sure.

Try using the Windows on-screen keyboard. If you are seeing a space where your spacebar should be in the on-screen keyboard, then you'll need to change your keyboard layout back to US QWERTY (or whatever layout you type on.)

If the OSK looks fine, then check this page for help. If you've attached an external keyboard to your laptop in the past, refer to the first post. If not, you can try to attempt the second post.

It hasn't taken a knock and I have removed the two keys, which were on a hinge, and could see no visable reason why they may have stoppped e.g. dirt (nothing more technical than that).

A:2 keys not working on keyboard?

Keyboards seem to drive their keys in diagonal rows. IE:
1qaz
2wsx
3edc, etc.

Since your 2 keys are consecutive in a diagonal row, we get the connection. The most suggested things are physically cleaning the membrane under the keys, and keyboard drivers. I have never owned a laptop, so I'm not sure you can just delete the keyboard driver, and let windows redetect. Or, just remove, and install the currect driver. Hopefully someone with laptop experience will be along with more info. A Guy

I have an unusual issue that I know others have had as well.  MySHIFT, Z, X, C, V, M, SPACE BAR, and COMMA keys do not work.  I've tried everything short of replacing the motherboard. I upgraded to the most recent BIOS (F.46).  Took the battery out and held down the power button for over a minute.  Plugged the AC adapter in as the computer first boots, performed a Factory Reset, replaced the Hard Drive.  Uninstalled and re-installed keyboard drivers.  I even replaced the keyboard with a new one only to have the same exact keys not work.  This seems to me as if it's a Firmware issue or a faulty motherboard that we the consumer shouldn't have to pay for to fix.  HP should have some sort of recall or something as I've read numerous posts of this same issue. Has anyone found a fix for this or had any luck with HP Support when their laptop is no longer under warranty?

Tap the F8 key on the keyboard during the boot process until you see the Windows Advanced Options Menu on the screen.
Select “Safe Mode with Networking” from the menu using the arrow keys on the keyboard and then press the <Enter> key.
Select the user account at the log in screen.
Try using your computer and see if the issue persists there.  

In case of keyboard, you may also try using a USB keyboard and see if it works. If issue persists, remove the USB keyboard and use an Onscreen keyboard to see if the issue persists with that as well. 

To use On screen keyboard:

Choose Start/Windows logo → Control Panel → Ease of Access → Ease of Access Center.
Click the Start On-Screen Keyboard button.
Test out the on-screen keyboard input in any application where you can enter text.
Click Options, select the Turn on numeric key pad check box, and then click OK.
Open a notepad and try typing on that by clicking on the keys of On screen keyboard.


Note: To use keystroke combinations (such as Ctrl+Z), click the first key (in this case, Ctrl) and then click the second key (Z). You don’t have to hold down the first key as you do with a regular keyboard.

 You coukd try to attach an external keyboard to see if it is hardware or software related. You could also see this by using a live linux cd to see if you have the same problem. If it is hardware you can probably get it replaced. David

I have an unusual issue that I know others have had as well.  MySHIFT, Z, X, C, V, M, SPACE BAR, and COMMA keys do not work.  I've tried everything short of replacing the motherboard. I upgraded to the most recent BIOS (F.46).  Took the battery out and held down the power button for over a minute.  Plugged the AC adapter in as the computer first boots, performed a Factory Reset, replaced the Hard Drive.  Uninstalled and re-installed keyboard drivers.  I even replaced the keyboard with a new one only to have the same exact keys not work.  This seems to me as if it's a Firmware issue or a faulty motherboard that we the consumer shouldn't have to pay for to fix.  HP should have some sort of recall or something as I've read numerous posts of this same issue. Has anyone found a fix for this or had any luck with HP Support when their laptop is no longer under warranty?

Replace the keyboard -- if you need a part reference please supply the complete model number (i.e., Inspiron N5110, XPS L502x, etc. -- not just "Inspiron 15" or "XPS 13").
