Hello,

I have laptop Dell Inspiron 1545 Windows XP. l cleaned it by wet hanky. Now when I press (q) = it writes (q1), when I press (w) = it writes (w2)

When I press (e) =it write(e3).....the same for (r,u,i,o.p) and the remaining letters don't write anything.

I try the solutions like.....(as I dont have num key in my laptop)
fn+f11/ fn+f12 / fn+prntScr / press both shift on the same time
also I make num lk off by using on screen keyboard

But, there is no success!

Please help!

According to some discussions, the keyboard might be faulty or there might be some dust.
You should try to disconnect / reconnect the keyboard :

If you still have the problem, you can try with a USB keyboard to know if it's hardware related.

It might very likely. At least you should try with an external USB keyboard.

I believe you have a Mac. Did you try resetting the PRAM ?

make sure your Language settings are good :

Control Panel / Regional and Language / Keyboard settings.

Also try to run an Antivirus check
