I came into this notebook. The screen needs to be replaced, but there is another problem that has me wondering if it's worth it. That is the keyboard. When I type a, I get az; when I type s, I get sx; when I type d, I get dc; and when I type f, I get fv. This also happens when I type z, x, c, and v. These are the only keys that do this. I've been trying to find if it's just a faulty keyboard, or if it's other issue related.

 

I have already done what most sites suggested: check keyboard language, turn off sticky keys, etc. There are NO software upgrades for it.

 

It works fine with an external keyboard plugged it, which kinda tells me it's a faulty keyboard. I haven't taken it apart and really don't want to until I get a new screen.

 

What do you think?

I agree with your assessment.

 

Since an external keyboard works fine it seems that the built in keyboard is the issue.  However, is it also possible that there is additional damage.  But, since the keys that show on screen are directly next to the key pressed I'd say it is a hardware issue with the keyboard where the contacts for the double keys have some how become connected, best guess is liquid damage.

Yeah, my thoughts. Well, for the screen and keyboard it's only $80 plus time to tear into it, I may just bite the bullet and hope it doesn't go off. Thanks.
