Hello,

This is a very weird problem, but whenever I try to type "jou" (say, for "journal" or "journey"), it comes out as "jo.urnal" or "jo.urney" when I type really fast. This is crazy and has been bugging me for ages. I tried other combinations of these keys without reproducing the problem. It's just that specific combination of jo.u (see? It happened again!) that makes this happen.

What's the issue here and how do I fix it?

Thank you!

Laptop: Toshiba Satellite L830
OS: Windows 8.1 (64-bit)

Hello RJOpal,
You said, 'when I type really fast'
May be it is you mistake by wrongly pressing dot(.)
Then how you type the above question? without dot(.)

I've checked, even with my hands nowhere near the dot (with my hands off the keyboard and only my fingers on the keys I'm pressing) it appears. If I type slower, this does not happen.

So it might be the problem in keyboard which the button internally touch each other...
if it creates issue contact technician and check your keyboard that place on the motherboard..
