Keyboard Problems with Windows 7

    Question

  • I just purchased a Dell Inspiron with Windows 7.  The problem is, the keyboard seems to have a mind of its own.  When I am typing online, all of the sudden I find that I have opened a new tab or the search box has opened or I am adding something to favorites.  When I am off line working in a word document, sometimes when I press p the print dialog box opens.  Sometimes when I press b the text is bolded, u the text begins to be underlined, i the text begins to be put in italics.  Ohter times the entire document gets highlighted and with the next keystroke I unintentionally delete my entire document.  The text justification and margins change randomly as well.  It is extremely frustrating to work with a keyboard that has a mind of its own.

  • Hi,

    First I suggest you test to do some tests in Safe Mode. If issue will not occur in Safe Mode, uninstall and reinstall the keyboard. If there is a keyboard driver program installed, remove it or upgrade it.

    If issue still exists, replace current keyboard to do some tests if available. They issues occur in Word can be caused if Ctrl key is hold.

  • Actually ENV. Im using a new laptop i purchased from MSI. you are correct in saying the keyboard has a mind of its own. it randomly presses buttons such as... f11.... tab... enter.. or random numbers that are nowhere near your fingers. it has nothing to do with your personal machine. it is a bug within windows7. regardless of what anyone else tells you. i dare you to try any other OS except vista. "they use same ____" and you will not have the problem anymore. during the time i was typing this out. it tabbed me 4 times pressed enter 2 times and f11 once. Microsoft will tell you its hardware because they don't want to spend the time to fix it. i'll keep you posted because i am simply making a rewritten version of windows7. and will be submitting it to Microsoft. with the obvious corrections. or maybe just be they're competition.  reguardless microsoft is lazy and wont fix the problem. because they havent typed enough on a OS to test such a problem. hence..one paragraph.

  • I have a DELL XPS M1530 that I bought in July of 2008 and I just recently installed Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit on it. When I use the built-in PS2 compatible keyboard I experience this exact same issue, the keyboard just seems to randomly execute keystrokes that I never typed but when I use an external keyboard I do not have this issue. I've checked the keyboard device driver and it is from Microsoft, version 6.1.7600.16385, dated 6/21/06. All attempts to get an updated driver have failed. If my research is correct Vista was RTM'd November 8th of 2006 and released to the public on January 30, 2007. I would expect that Microsoft would have released a new PS2 keyboard laptop driver sometime in the last 3-4 years but I can't seem to find one. I am glad to hear the this problem is not just a DELL issue. Using an external keyboard at home is not a big issue but when traveling it could unless I purchase an external travel sized bluetooth keyboard. I know this is not a complete solution to this issue and i too would like a new updated keyboard driver for my 1530 but it works.

  • It's July 15, 2010. I bought a Dell Vostro 1320 with Windows 7 Professional. The laptop had so many touchpad and keyboard problems that they replaced the system. By the time the replacement came in, it was the newer Vostro 3300. This one had terrible keyboard problems. It really had a mind of its own:  t brought up the find and replace utility, w deleted the sreen, i changed to italics, and other keys broght up a browser, etc. NIGHTMARE.

    Dell has spent over 40 hours with me, scanning for viruses, re installing the OS, etc. Still having the problem and have to use external keyboard.

    IT's amazing that Dell Gold Tech Support guys all say they never heard of this problem and will try to research it.

    I'm really getting tired of all the wasted time and the consistent problems.

    Has anyone figured out what to do?  We even flashed the bios, reinstalled drivers, etc....


    Thanks!!

  • I'm having the same problem.  This is happening on my new Gateway with gateway keyboard where I'm browsing and suddenly the keyboard functionality changes. The 't' key highlights the window, and other windows shortcuts seem to activate from other keys.  This is a work machine and causing productivity loss on my part. The only way to recover correect keyboard function is to restart the machine. I haven't found a fix yet, if anyone does I'd love to hear about it, however  I did find this, http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/download/DownloadResult.aspx?category=MK&type=Keyboard&name=KEY-00029&os=Win7_32&lang=en

    I don't know if it will work since I'm just going to try it now.

    That's my tuppence worth.

  • Did you have any luck with this?

    I'm having similar issues.. Can't use the C, v or z without it typing zcv..

    Left shift fires up 3 explorer windows.. 1 & 3 fire up help pages and type 13..

    Hitting enter types zcv..

    Took me ages to type this and its doing my head in.. reboot doesn't work but if I leave it a few hours it sorts itself out for a bit.. comes back after a while though..

    Any ideas?

     

    Edit : Also should mention that reboot doesn't help me..

  • I had this problem with a Dell that we purchased for my son and I now have it with a net book I recently purchased.  Microsoft should not be getting away with this so easily as this is a very obvious problem and if they did not find this.....I seriously question their true abilities....do they just want to make money and give us this ____.  If Microsoft cares so much about about helping the world he should start by really caring about his customers who are making him so rich he can do this.

    I suggest Warren Buffet sit down with Bill Gates and serious discuss these ethical behaviours.

  • I also have this problem. I have a emachine laptop with windows 7 home edition. When I a typing the cursor moves. the italics come on and won't go off. and sometimes everything that I type highlights and everything disapears. I am taking college classes on this computer and it is very frustrating. Also sometimes the page moves up or down and some times even goes to a different page. This computer is only about three months old and has no viruses. I don't know what to do about short of throwing the computer across the room.

  • This issue is ridiculous! Initially, when I started experiencing problems, my husband thought it was just due to the way I type or the repeat-rate settings... but I've tried changing settings and typing differently (slowing down and independently hitting keys with more time between each keystroke). He also has experienced the same infuriating issue while just trying to do the simplest tasks on this laptop. Obviously a problem with the keyboard plagues users of laptops with Windows 7 (or is it because of the same drivers for different laptop keyboards??). I'm using a Dell Inspiron 1545 with Windows 7 that was purchased in December 2009. The most frequent problems are: --> randomly pops-up a new tab or a new search tab while typing even when NO WHERE NEAR THE CTRL or T keys, and --> in the middle of typing, the cursor suddenly drops halfway down the page to the beginning or end of a line DESPITE NOT TOUCHING THE CTRL or END or PAGE DOWN keys.

    Is there ANY legitimate patch for this problem? Has anyone had ANY success in getting this resolved through Microsoft???

  • Okey, and here are another one spottin same problem.

    Dell Optiplex 980.

    Problem are come-n-going. The keystrokes dissappears and sometimes appears as there are ctrl/alt/shift pressed.

    I've tried different keyboards, disconnected other usb hardwares. Tried the keyboards on other machines. Everything is fine except typing on this computer.

  • Hi

    unfortunately this topic is older than 1 year and there is still no answer / solution. i'm having the same problem. just built my own pc last week and installed Win 7 Home Premium. sometimes when im typing a letter it seems that the windows key of my keyboard gets activated randomly. when i type a "f" the search box opens or when i type a "l" the loggin sreen appears

    would be great if microsoft could provide a solution

    ps: sorry for my english ;-)

  • I've had this problem on AMD desktop W7-64 bit for quite a while. The problem usually happens just after i've switched focus from one window to another, and the weird effects can be reproduced by holding down the Windows key and typing (Windows + F gives search window, Windows + N pops up a OneNote note window, etc...) Super annoying and i have no fix, but if I start the 'on-screen keyboard' in Accessories, the problem always immediately goes away. i just keep a shortcut for that somewhere easily accessible, and bring it up when i have the issue. note, it doesn't seem to help to leave it open - you have to start it up and that initialization seems to fix the focus/capture issue that's the underlying problem here.

  • I have a very similar problem: just before Christmas, I bought and clean-installed Win7 Home premium 64 bit on my BRAND NEW Lenovo SL410 laptop and the keyboard does not work properly. I re-installed the OS several times, even tried the 32bit version, but the problem was still there. Some of the keys type different carracters (eg: when I hit t it types tr, hitting w activates caps lock etc). After the system run a few automatic Windows updates, the next day the keyboard suddenly started working properly. I was happy, but after another day the problem was back. I tried to uninstall and reinstall the keyboard driver, uninstall all of the Windows 7 automatic updates, but nothing helped. Called the UK Microsoft customer support today, but after 1 hour on the phone with the technician, he was unable to help. He suggested I try a USB keyboard, which I did and it worked properly. He is going to call me tomorrow to follow up this issue and I guess he will try to convince me that it is a hardware problem. I wonder how can he explain that the keyboard was actually working properly for a while...Any suggestions, please? It is really frustrating. Thanks

  • I have a HP dv2000, just put in a new hard drive, additional memory, and alas, installed Win7 64-bit ... and I'm having the same frustrating keyboard issues ... but there are certain letter combinations that seem to be catalysts more so than others ... i.e., when I type the "ou", "th", or "be" combinations, the cursor goes back to some random point and begins to insert what is subsequently typed; typing a "y" highlights and deletes everything before it. Imagine how long its taking me to complete this little blurb .. yeah, frustrating as all get out. Oh, and when I send SMS msgs via any of the messaging apps, every letter typed envokes "send" unless I pause a couple of seconds between letters ... yeah, a real pain in the royal arse! Oh, that exclamation point just made the screen jump up to the top of the page ... lovely! Why is nothing being done about the problem? Or is this some sort of subliminal ad campaign from Microsoft to get us all to switch to the more expensive yet incredibly reliable Mac with the virtually flawless OS?

  • I had the same keyboard problems that have been described previously.  I am using a Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop and the problems began after installing Windows 7.  The laptop did not experience this problem under Vista.  The problem now appears to be solved.  Here is what I did:

    1) Installed SP 1 for Windows 7 (I don't think this made a difference, however)

    2) Downloaded the Touchpad/Mouse driver from Dell

    3) De-selected "tap to click" in the Dell Touchpad/Mouse driver, Touchpad Settings.  (Access this through Control Panel, Mouse)

    4) Moved the "touch sensisitivity" indicator towards the "heavy" end.

    I think that the problems I was experiencing may have been related to an overly sensitive touchpad and when the touchpad was inadvertantly grazed, bizarre cursor and keypad behavior resulted.

    Hope this helps someone.

  • I have the same problem on a Sony VAIO laptop. 
    mercredi 13 avril 2011 15:25
  • OK, here we go....

    I have heard of some issues that may be a root cause of this.

    I'm running Win 7 Home Premium on a Dual 64 AMD processor.

     

    1. Win 7 has had several hardware design based issues with the USB ports.  That would explain what I get the most, my USB keyboard 'stops' then starts working again.  Very embarrassing when playing online games, and one is in a knife-fight.  For a while, my keyboard would hang, and unplugging it long enough to hear the disconnect tone, then plugging it back in worked until the next time it happened.  Since running recent Windows updates, this seems to have gone away, but now, my keyboard simply pauses.  Other USB devices are doing the same.  I just now tried to update my iPhone, only to have it interrrupted by Windows telling me the device was no longer connected.  I was not near the wire connecting the device, so once again, my USB went bye-bye.  Happened twice in a row.  This is getting serious on my PC.

    I have experienced the issue above, with a non-USB keyboard. The random keystroke, or keystrokes added thing....Being that I will temporarily test an AT keyboard while troubleshooting my USB ports, I will let ya'll know if I see anything again.

     

    I have read some forum discussions on Windows and USB issues.  Some say to check jumper settings on either the motherboad, or the IC card that the front-panel USB ports are mounted on.  Apparently the wiring of front-panel USB ports is being argued by various manufacturers, and the debate rages on how to wire USB connections to motherboards...that's what I believe is going on with that.

    I have a feeling that the default USB keyboard drivers for Win 7 are trying to get too fancy, and have default settings that were not well tested.  They are making something simple like a keyboard too easy to screw up.  The OS SHOULD be plug and play.  Plug and play is becoming a bad joke these days...

    Although some more power was given to the sophisticated user in Win 7, too much control over the OS is disappearing.  I am an Engineer, who enjoys online gaming for recreation.  Win 7 is good for running newer games fast, BUT I can't tell it to stop using network resources..I mention this, because troubleshooting a keyboard SHOULD be easy, but my OS makes me guess too much, and I have no idea what parts of the OS are involved in the OS communicating with my keyboard.

    As for gaming, I'm best running an XP partition to run my network games.  But I'll be restricted to older ones.

    I have seen some improvement in access to the documentation I need to trouble-shoot these issues, but usually find the answers in forums such as this.  I should not have to read the Tech-nets for 3 hours to make my keyboard work.

  • It was as if I had spilled something on the keyboard and didn't know it, yet I instinctively knew something else was afoot since I did no such thing. I would be playing my favorite game and I would get crazy feedback interrupting the other keys I was pressing down causing me to be unjustly pwned. My rep as a pub star has taken a blow, but you have helped me get rid of such a frustrating problem. Thanks!

  • Hi

    I havent read all the way through the thread so dont know if its been suggested, but I had the problem of having a keyboard with a mind of its own some years ago.  Acer were of very little help 'blaming' me for being a touch typist and grazing the touchpad although I knew the problem wasnt that. 

    Then I found a free program called Touchfreeze (just google it to download it).  It solved the problem instantly.  I still have the same laptop and have reformatted a few times over the years but alway had to download Touchfreeze to control the cursor.   I hope this helps someone.

  • Since I have had the same issues with Dell Desktop (E510) since I purchased it in 2003.  After many updates, its still there.  What happens is that I am typing just am I am doing now, and whether I pause or not, the cursoralways moves one line above and I am typing in the middle of another word!   The cursor has a mind of its own, but consistently errs in the exact same  frustrating way.  I just acquired a Dell Inspiron 1520 with Windows 7 professional installed.   Everything about the laptop and the software is fine.....except for that same exact problem, 

    (just now I  was completing the "problem" word and suddenly, it went ahead to the previous line and inserted itself into the line above -  the first word and  it happened again. 

     

    Suffice to say, the same problem occurred in a desktop and laptop.  Judging from the string above, it has to be Windows software.  It occurred in the E310 using XP.   Anyone have any ideas?  The keyboard setting above didn't make a difference.   Debra (Debra 1533)

  • I find that it just Isn't the keyboard pulling up menues and hotkeying, using the mouse trying to open apps when this bug happens reveals the icon properties, and when online you notice that clicking any link opens in a new window on it's own and the pointer highlights everything,  the problem is a hotkey issue that WIndows 7 has,  i cannot turn it off or reverse the keystrokes back to normal, i have to restart the PC    i have heard that depressing the Microsoft button and other keys returns it back to normal, but i have tried everything, i just reboot my machine.

    Windows 7 is crap, always asking for Administrator rights anyway, when i am the Administrator, can't even delete my own stuff without having permission...from who exactly?

    just another stupid Geeky computer nerd function they thought of that has absolutely no impact to the user in a windows session anyway..  Can't wait to see what the next inferior version of Microstuffed will be.

  • Nikki - whenever I can get a REAL solution, I will post it in this thread.  We are among millions I think, this is not a hardware problem but one created by Windows software, it also occurs on my Dell Desktop running Windows and all others that run Windows.

  • I had the same problem with the keyboard  having a mind of its own!  For almost 9 months - after I installed Windows 7 on my Dell laptop - this problem drove me to frustration.  BUT NOW!  A friend fixed it!  Turns out that when we installed Windows 7 we somehow lost the drivers to the touchpad, or at least we couldn't find reference to the touchpad anywhere on the system.  He  went to the Dell touchpad drivers' site, put in the Service Code # to get to the right driver, and dowloaded the appropriate driver.   Once re-installed, I no longer have the keyboard problem - it types perfectly.  At first he thought we needed to uncheck the option to be able to click on the main square of the touchpad, but I checked it again so that I can click with the touchpad square, and the keyboard still types great.  So very relieved! 
    Hope this works for someone else.  Good luck.

  • This describes my issues exactly. I have a BRAND NEW HP something laptop. Was so happy to get windows 7. Ya right, it's a NIGHTMARE. I have to reboot every half hour and have to save my work! I accidentally fixed the problem once...don't know how though. I just kept pressing ALT, CNTRL, the WIN key and the FN key randomly and I guess I hit the magic combo somehow. But, ya, it's easier to reboot. I can't believe that MS really hasn't come up with a solution. Other than us ranting in this forum, is there a way to actually FORWARD THESE ISSUES DIRECTLY >>TO<< MICROSOFT? This is such a headache!
    samedi 25 février 2012 14:00
  • what happens when it's a laptop and the keyboard is the one attached to the unit and you never installed anything--windows 7 was already installed? can you ask your friend for help? two weeks, and i'm going insane :)
    samedi 25 février 2012 14:03
  • I have the same issue. The keyboard just types in characters randomly. I am researching how to get rid of Windows 7 altogether but according to Microsoft, this isn't possible. To say that I am unhappy with Windows 7 would be an understatement. This is just one of the many massive issues with this junk software.

  • This sounds strangely like a Catch-22: one cannot uninstall a key board with only a mouse, to my knowledge. Please tell me how one would accomplish this?
    mercredi 14 mars 2012 16:06
  • There is indeed a weird issue with Windows 7 that cause the keyboard to become out sync. This problem happens infrequently, but frequently enough that it's a major pain in the ass.  The problem is resolved when you reboot the machine.  A quicker easier fix is to go to the on-screen keyboard which you can find in the Ease of Access Folder from the Start Menu.  Click the ESC key on the on-screen keyboard and this should re-sync your keyboard so that you can use it again.  I suspect that there is an issue with a program using a hook to gain access to the Windows keyboard service.  I find that I'm most likely to encounter this problem when I'm using Visual Studio 2010.

  • I'm also having this issue for quite some time now on desktop W7 Ultimate x64 with a Gigabyte wireless keyboard and mouse. The problem I'm having is not limited to a specific program but applies to the base inputs, and affects the entire system use and browsing.

    Most of the times the keyboard doubles or adds inputs, skips some, inputs random keys, or replace an input with the following one (like writing "focce" instead of "force"). I noticed that in most of these cases, the keyboard stops responding for a second or so. There are also times where it completely stops responding.

    Another worse issue that occurs less often but really annoying and frustrating is that the keyboard behaves strangely. The alphabetic and numerical keys are locked out and don't work, or triggers some special commands depending on the running program, and for most cases, only some command keys work, and again, not as you should expect.

    An example is when on the desktop, clicking an icon selects it, but clicking afterward on a blank space in the desktop wont deselect it, and further more, clicking another icon will select all the items between the 1st clicked one until the last clicked one (similar to "Shift" select). On a media player, pressing the space bar will bring the window menu.

    It seems, in most situations, like "Alt" and "Shift" Keys are held down, and most inputs behave like you would expect from the "Alt+Shift+Button" combination to work (clicking on an icon in the task bar would open a new window of that program).

    Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find any answer or at least an explanation to what is causing the issue, and turning off the device or even remove the batteries don't work. Most of the time the only way to get passed it is to unplug the keyboard and mouse adapter, wait for the "device unplugged" message and replug it again, go to user login screen and re-login (switch user start menu command), or in the worst scenario, restarting the computer.
