Laptop keyboard automatically type slash bars

June 18, 2011 at 13:22:54
Specs: Windows Vista, Core 2 Duo / 2GB
Hello there, My keyboard automatically types \\\ (slash bar) on the text box or text area (everywhere I write). When I tried to delete them... it replaces with pppp.It even sometimes doesn't allow to delete \\\ or ppp etc.
I already have Macfee. I thought it should be some virus or malware and so installed some anti-virus/ani-malware tools like Microsoft onecare and Malware bytes. Each of these scans found some virus, I got them removed. I remember that Malware bytes has detected trojan hiloti and onecare has detected some 14 affected items and 7 issues.
Its very difficult to write anything on the text area or test box or anywhere. This happens everytime every day. But, at sometimes my system works normally and keyboard works normal but it last for 1 or 2 days (sometimes 1 week) only. And it again appears the same problem after few days. Someone suggested me that its a problem with Battery. I now have given direct power supply to my laptop but it gives the same problem.

I have restored my Windows to the factory model, however I am still facing the issue.Now, I didn't install any sofware other the software Microsoft provided, but the problem still exists.My model is Sony Vio VGN-C2S. Its intel Core 2 Duo and 1GM RAm (Upgraded to 2GB RAM).

Could you please suggest me some best approach to get this removed.

You should try another keyboard. Plus do you have a Wireless keyboard (besides power supply)? If you do, do you have another Wireless Mouse or a second Wireless Keyboard to another computer you have? Those devices could have conflicting signals causing the wrong typing. Try getting a wired keyboard and mouse. Does it work now?

It sounds like you spilled something on the keyboard.

Thanks a lot for all your responses

To verify if there is any problem with my Laptop Keyboard, I bought a new Microsoft Wireless Keyboard today; but, still I am facing the same problem. Even there is no other Wireless equipment with me now.
Added to the original issues, my Laptop also makes lot of beep sounds when it automatically types \\\\\\ anywhere.
Please help?

Thanks & Regards,
Kitez

When you start the PC, it will flash press F1 or Del to enter setup. Follow whatever it says.

I have restored the BIOS to defaults but still I am facing the problem.

Please advise? Is there any chance of any hardware failure?

Yes, there is a chance of hardware failure but I like to leave that for last resort, since it costs nothing to check the rest.

When you installed the new keyboard, did you disable the driver of the old keyboard?

Secondly, I searched google for keyboard types by itself. One response was that remote management needs to be disabled. I think they meant remote access manager in services. I don't know why that would cause that but it's worth a try.

Repeat the search for other hits.

Hey Kitez,
I'm facing the same problem from the last 4 months. Have you found the solution to this problem? My laptop is Sony Vaio VPCEB. I also thought to restore the system to factory model but when I got to knw tht you already tried this my last hope is gone. The problematic button in my laptop is 'P', but my problem is perhaps more painful cause when I type it manually it doesn't work, n along with this 'p', the '=' button is also not working. If you find a solution please let me know.
