Hi everyone.

I have Windows 10 on an Acer Aspire S3.
Three days ago, I started notice that when i type "j" the outcome is a "s" (Even with maiusc, "S" instead of "J"). The "s" is working properly (displaying a "s" when typed) and all other characters too, no Bloc Num or Region&Language issue here.

I haven't found anything similar on Google, so I desperatly beg for your help!

Thank you.

Can you test using an external USB keyboard. It's possible that your keyboard has failed and needs to be replaced.

Good Luck

Thank you for your idea.

I don't have any external USB keyoboard at my disposal now, I plan to try it next days.

However, if it is of any help in the understanding of the problem, I've tried to remap the keys with KeyTweak and these are the results:
remapping the key [ j ] to the character "j" still continue to type "s"
remapping [ s ] to "j" both [ s ] and [ j ] type "j"
remapping [ s ] to a random character (e.g. "q") both [ s ] and [ j ] type "q"
so it looks like the key [ s ] dominates the key [ j ], whatever [ s ] types also [ j ] types.
