    Keyboard keeps missing out letters, even though i'm typing them?

    When your keyboard keeps missing out the odd letter here and there, even though you are 100% sure you pressed them..............is it time for a new keyboard?

    Only had it 1 year, checked all the wires, but still happening.

    Do you have a small child? Are the keys sticky?

    If so you need a new keyboard...

    Yeah my laptop does that one of the screws came out the n and k has to be pushed in about 20 times harder than any other key. Easy to do on a PC just get a new keyboard, but a laptop and its a new laptop

    Jeany had this problem and found she had a crumb under one of her keys:giggle:

    not joking

    Have you checked the ink levels on your LCD screen?

    It happens on my laptop all the time, mainly because I eat my lunch whilst working on it & the crumbs end up where they shouldn't. I just lift the key out & give it a good blow, works every time.

    :lol:

    my keyboard has had most of the letters rubbed off, lucky I can touch type but the kids make a mess of their searches

    I think as others have said, there is something stuck under the keys, turn it upside down and shake it :thumbsup:

    is it wireless? can do that sometimes when the batteries are going or if its too far away from the receiver

    Edit: just re read the op, missed the bit saying 'checked all the wires' lol

    Borrow another keyboard, with your description of the problem it could just as easily be a software problem than a hardware problem. Alternatively, try the keyboard on another computer and see if the same thing happens.

    Mie keeps missig the key between b ad m all the time - occasioally the ke next to the t ad u stops tpig as well

    Every so often I pop all the keys off and wipe the plastic and shake all the dirt out, just make sure you know where they all go back in and it takes about 5-10 minutes to get keys out then back in alone.
