Solved problem with some keys on external keyboard

December 26, 2012 at 04:02:26
Specs: Windows 7
I am now typing with an external keyboard, as some of my keys produce strange results. e.g.
when I press 1, it shows: d+,1
when I press q it shows: äl:Q
when I press c it shows: eß and asks if I want Carat browsing on.
when I press Del button it shows:8<9

Also, when I press these faulty keys they make a beeping noise.

Please help me, I am desperate.

Thank you for the additional details. Although I am not familiar with the brand of notebook you are using, I have encountered the same situation on Toshiba, Sony and Dell machines (probably others too) and have always had to replace the keyboard. It is not difficult to do and as a general rule not too expensive, however, parts availability can be problematic. If there is still warranty on the machine you may want to consider returning it to the manufacturer. Also, watch this post for a few days. Others here may have better advice than I have offered.

Best Regards

A little more information would go a long way in assisting you to resolve this issue. Are you using a laptop with a usb keyboard? If so, are the laptop keys malfunctioning or the usb keyboard? Both?

Sorry, yes, I guess I was not clear enough. The faulty keyboard is part of my Medion Notebook. I then plugged in an external key board and everything works fine with that. But on the Notebook the following keys are not working: 1, q, c, delete, and all of the numbers on the number pad. The other keys are working fine.
