I have strange issue on my lenovo z370. The 'H' button is keep pressing and it make a disturbing sound on desktop. When i change it to notepad so i know what button that keep presing, it turns out the H button does. Than i re instal my OS using windows 7 and the button keeps doing that. The worst part is i even disconected the keyboard from the laptop, i unpluged the flexible wire and turns out it keep pressing the H button. Is anyone can help me with this problem?

It seems you have an issue with your keyboard, but Im a little confused here ... The Z370 is a Lenovo IdealPad laptop machine isnt it? If so, how did you unplug the keyboard? Was it an external keyboard you plugged in so you dont use the laptop keyboard? If so try lifting the "H" button on the laptop keyboard. It may be stuck in the down position.

Please let me know how you get on.

Thank you for your answer brian
No i dont use the external keyboard. I mean the main keyboard, the keyboard that applied in the machine, you can re-assamble it right? I unplugged the cable that attach to it, like im changing it with the new one

That, unfortunately, is usually the best solution. I'm assuming you have taken the keyboard completely out? You can remove the keys and press them on again (as long as you know how - see YouTube perhaps). This can free the keys, but more often it is a keyboard issue and that will usually need a replacement. You have nothing to lose though - it might be worth a try - but I would advise against removing any of the mechanism that is under the key unless you are very confident in your dextrosity (is that even a word?).

However, if you have no keyboard attached now I am at a loss to see that the "H" key is still seeming to be pressed. If you havent tried it without the "built in" keyboard then you could try it with a USB keyboard attached - at least for the short term until you get a new laptop one.

Please make sure you get the right replacement keyboard. There should be a model number on the underside of the original so you can get the same.

Yes brian, that is what bothering me. I have no attached keyboard, not an usb keyboard or original keyboard on the laptop but the H button keep pushing like "h..hhh....hhhh..h.h.h.hhh.hhhh"
I dont even know why and i dont know how to fix it

So what happens when you turn off the laptop and then power it on? Could ther be dust or some foreigh object or fluid in the socket where you plug the ribbon into?

When i turn it on and go into the bios the H button keep presing because there is a sound "pip pip pip pip" repeated like keyboard pressing. Even in the first time that windows icon show up in the first time turning on the laptop.
No im pretty sure theres no dust or some liquid in the socket. Because i have clean it carefully.
