I'm having problems with my laptops keyboard (Dell Inspiron). Every time I type press a key like "g" I get "5g" or when I type "h" I get "6h" instead. Pretty much most of the keys are jumbled up and giving me problems.

I used Norton, and it was useless. I then used Kaspersky and it says I have adware.win32.virtumonde.hb. I used VundoFix and it says I have nothing on my laptop. I ran Adware and Spybot Searc6h & Destroy.

The problem started when I was playing a game. The game was full screen and then I minimized it. Shortly after I realized I was having problems with the keyboard when I typed.

I downloaded a keyboard testing program and it diagnosed it as a hardware problem.

Does anyone have any advice on cleaning and fixing laptop keyboards.

I could really use some help. I can't keep typing with my keyboard messed up like this.

From my understanding there is not much to fix on a keyboard. you best option would be to buy a new keyboard or go to eBay or Amazon and find good surplus keyboard. Ebay notebook keyboards
