i have been having a serious issue with my keyboard the last several days. i have a Sony Vaio laptop and just a few days ago, the letters on the right hand side of the keyboard are typing numbers and characters instead of letters. the letters that should type uiopjklm are typing 456*123-0 and then these characters :[;/ are showing up as different keyboard characters as well. the only way i can get the correct letters to show up is to hold down the 'Fn' key that is located by the 'Ctrl' key on the left side of the keyboard.

does anyone know how this can be fixed?

any help is greatly appreciated!! thanks!

 

UPDATE: press the NUM LOCK KEY!

Re: Sony Vaio keyboard problems
A few months ago I spilled plain ice water on my keyboard (Sony Vaio E Series VPCS22FX). First the keyboard would not type at all - but I found the onscreen keyboard and used it successfully for a few weeks. Then it started to repeat the ooooooooo key even when I was using the onscreen keyboard. Only a few keys work on the actual keyboard- also the touchpad does not work. I have been reading fixes and may try to order & install a new keyboard - but...I plugged in the battery (which is at full power) and found that it did not power the machine. Once I unplug the power cord with the full battery in place, the machine shuts off immediately. So...my question is if I replace the keyboard - will that fix the battery & touch pad problem as well??? Hope someone can help

Sony Vaio E-Series- backspace key not working
Hello Sir, my backspace key on my Sony Vaio E-Series notebook is not working for 3 months. I called the customer care and they told me to do a BOIS update and have done it. But the problem is still going on. And one some of keys stoped working i.e. R why you 0 . Then i have pressed Alt+ F10 key together on startup for ten minutes by seeing the solution on internet and these keys again started working. But BACKSPACE key is still not working. The problem is still the same.. Please help me !!

Re: Sony Vaio E-Series- backspace key not working
TIP: You get what you pay for! My advise is to throw it in the trash and go buy a quality computer. Obviously the Vaio is junk and yours is broken. No magic combination of keys or updates can fix broken.

Re: Sony Vaio keyboard problems

I dont think there is much you can do in this case. Take it back to the guy you bought it from and get one that works or call Sony for a replacement.

Re: Sony Vaio keyboard problems

hi hubby thanks for the reply the problem seems to have righted itself but im a bit wary of it happening again. this is a brand new laptop for my sons Christmas from the littlewoods catalogue and I have already had to send it back to sony for the screen to be replaced when I opened it to check in November and install wow for my son, good job I did or I wouldn't have known about the fault till christmas. im not impressed with sony workmanship at all. do you think I should still contact sony even though the problem seems to have fixed itself.

Re: Sony Vaio keyboard problems

I dont think they will do anything unless the problem is happening right then and there so I wouldn't bother unless it happens again..
