Hello,
I have a problem with my lenovo G560 laptop keyboard. If think that I might have changed my keyboard settings somehow. My keys are all mixed up. If I for example press the key 4 in 54 is now pressed & pess the 5 is again 54 is now pressed (6 is 67, 7is 67). Somehow some of my keys on my keyboard changed. I have no idea how to change it to its original setting

Hi jimmysing,

This problem might happen if there are multiple language keyboards selected in Text Services and Input Languages. To remove additional languages from Text Services and Input Languages:

1. Click Start and type "Region and Language" in the search box.
2. Select "Region and Language" from the search results.
3. Click Keyboard and Languages tab
4. Click Change keyboards...
5. Click general tab
6. From Installed services remove any other unwanted language.
7. Click Apply.
8. Click OK.
9. Finally, click OK on the Region and Language window.

If you are using Windows 8, try the below mentioned steps and remove other languages from the keyboard layout:

1. Swipe in from the right edge of the screen, and then tap Search.
2. If you're using a mouse, point to the upper-right corner of the screen, move the mouse pointer down, and then click Search.
3. Enter language, choose Settings, and then tap or click Add a language.
4. Unselect all the languages except US English.
5. Tap or click Options next to the language name, and then under Input method, tap or click Add an input method.
6. Browse the input method list or use the search box to find the keyboard layout you want to use.
7. Double-tap or double-click the keyboard layout, and then tap or click Save.

Hi jimmysingh,

This problem does not seem specific to any operating systems. In my case the issue got fixed both in Windows 7 and Windows 8 by following the steps. Let us try some other generic keyboard troubleshooting steps and see if the problem fixes:

1. Check for any spilled liquids on the keyboard.
2. Verify that there is nothing sitting on the keyboard.
3. Plug or reseat the keyboard connector directly into the computer.
4. Verify there are no broken/damaged pins or damage to the cable. Replace the keyboard for damaged pins/cable.
5. Use an external keyboard and perform the below steps.
6. Boot the system to a DOS prompt (Click Start type cmd in Run) to test the keyboard.
7. If the keyboard works fine on DOS Prompt, reinstall the keyboard driver, if your keyboard came with a disc.
8. Check the Accessibility Options (Click Start type Ease of Access Center and hit Enter) in the Control Panel (options on Keyboard tab should be unchecked).
9. Swap with a known good laptop keyboard (if available)'. If the known good keyboard works, replace the Keyboard.
10. Test the keyboard functionality in Safe Mode (hit F8 when the computer starts and select Safe Mode). If the issue remains in Safe Mode, Replace the Keyboard.
11. Restore the operating system to an earlier date (Click Start type "system restore" in the search box and hit Enter).

Note: you might need a technician's help to remove or reseat the keyboard, to do so yourself you can refer to the Service Manual of your laptop. Ensure all the power connections including battery and external devices are removed press and hold the power button for 10-15 seconds to release any static charge in the computer before you open computer chassis.
