Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

My laptop keyboard is not typing all letters correctly it is worse when conected to the internet especially on sites like facebook. I think it may have a virus but the antivirus is not highlighting anything


Answers :

Could actually be a faulty keyboard. I had this problem before. Could be due to moisture. If you know how to open the keyboard, try that and wipe the keyboard board. If there's been moisture, you'll see some white powder on the board (calcium buildup). If the keyboard uses a carbon membrane, moisture can degrade it. Best bet, replace it.

But, here's something to try to be sure first. Download an Ubuntu ISO and burn it. Boot the PC with it and use the Live option (don't install) so you can try it without installing it. See if the keyboard works properly. If it works, it's software issue in your Windows (virus, faulty windows... etc.) No need to replace the keyboard. Just repair Windows.

One more thing I experienced before... just check if you have some speech recognition software on in the background. I had that problem and I didn't realize it's the software picking up noises and thinking I'm giving dictation... so it was typing things that I didn't type.

I would agree that your PC could be virus infected. Your Norton could not detect the virus for 2 possible reasons; 1.) your Norton is not update or 2.) the virus is "unknown" even on the most recent Norton Antivirus.\015\012\015\012If your Nort ... ASUS Eee 4G Notebook
