Laptop's Keyboard is acting funny?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

So I got this asus laptop around 4 months ago and it has being great up till the last few days. I don't know how or why but whenever I type weird stuff would happen. Like I would be typing at one place and suddenly the place I was typing at would be pushed back a few place and it would mess up my typing. This started a few days ago and has only gotten worse. Today is easily the worst day and as I was typing this, the weird thing happened five times. So anyone know what is wrong with it? 

I think the likely culprit is that I used Lens cleaning wipes on my keyboard to clean. But I'm not sure. What do you think? 

Thanks!

Are you using an external mouse by chance?

Yeah I'm using the razer deathadder. But even when I have the mouse unplugged the problem occurs.

Whenever I clean my keyboard I always power off the unit and I always wait a little while before I turn it on again. I make sure that the keyboard is dry so I don't short anything inside.

 

If you have an external USB keyboard, try it. If it doesn't happen chances are your keyboard has a problem.

You maybe hitting your touchpad by mistake....try to disable it since you are using an external mouse.

Yeah it could be static on the touchpad.

Maybe one key on your KB is stuck. It happened a lot of times with my previous laptop, otherwise it needs to be replaced.

The same exact thing happens with my Razer mouse, connected to my laptop ..

When I unplug and turn off the wireless mouse, it stops.

Any external USB device can cause adverse problems.  I had a mouse put strain on my power supply and cause so much system latency that I thought the hard drive was going bad.  Replaced the mouse and the system was like new.
