TAGs: Sony, Vaio, keyboard

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!

Sony Vaio Number 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

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..

Re: sony vaio keyboard
turn off the laptop and tap/hit the E key 10 or 20 times. if the key is just dirty inside that might clean and fix it. if that does not fix it you will need to have the keyboard replaced or just buy a new laptop. You can use a USB external keyboard in the meantime.

Re: sony vaio keyboard problems
My kids dropped a baseball on my laptop keyboard. Now the laptop will turn on but the screen does not come on. I removed the keyboard and it has a small dent where the ball hit. Since the unit turns on and the fan runs, could the damaged keyboard be the problem with the screen not turning on or could it be something more serious? Sony Vaio E Series.

Re: sony vaio keyboard problems

i highly doubt that the screen not coming on is due to the keyboard.. it might be something as simple as a loose or broken ribbon cable that leads to the screen..or, it could be something more serious.

Re: sony vaio keyboard problems
I was cleaning my SONY VAIO E series laptop computer while it was on and i think i accidentally pressed some key by mistake. The computer refused to shut down as the arrow was frozen. i however turned off the computer by pressing the turn off button on the keyboard. when i turned it on again i noticed that the keys M,N AND < , were dead. I cant log on to the computer because one of the dead letters are in my password. I need urgent help.

Re: sony vaio keyboard problems

I am not aware of any setting that would disable all the keys except for your F keys like that... It might be time to call the warranty-repair man or at least call Sony's support.

Re: sony vaio keyboard problems

Please help, my keyboard on my sony EBseries laptop is acting up. When I try to type any text often it skips letters or spaces back or erases certain text/letters.

Any idea why this is happening or how to fix it, i have cleaned my keyboard as i thought that may have been a problem.

Any suggestions I would appreciate!

Thanks,
Tina

I also have this problem. Also when typing in emails, it will send email without prompting. I think it has to do with the system anticipating spell check or auto fill.
