    Missing letters when typing!!

    I have a brand new Vaio Latop Model # VGN-N250E with an Intellipoint
    Wireless Mouse 4000. When on the net (only) works fine when not on the
    internet , I type as I normally would and miss seveeral letters, space bar
    doesnt work, even when pounding on keys. I have Windows Vista! HELP Can I
    disable my touch pad, I dont use it very often, but will likely need to
    enable it so that needs to be possible as well.

    To disable your touchpad, use the VAIO Control Center, or click on
    C:\Program Files\Sony\Setting Utility Series\VCCPointingDevice.exe.

    You have a "brand new" defective Vaio keyboard or a key is stuck
    down.
    Pounding on the keyboard probably voided your warranty and possibly
    caused additional damage to the components located beneath (Laptop
    keyboards are very thin). I have seen (other brand) keypads fail
    because of heavy handed usage found a weak spot in the key trace
    layout and caused it to fail after many repeated heavy key strokes on
    a particular key (cut through the trace), a layout change fixed this.

    Since this is a new computer have you contacted the tech support for it? If
    the hardware is not working they should fix it.

    Re: Missing letters when typing!!

    I am having the same problem with my desktop and laptop. My laptop is brand
    new (Toshiba M400 tablet). My desktop worked fine on XP until I installed
    Vista. I did noticed however that it seems to worsen in the afternoon as it
    gets warmer. First I thought it was my keyboard so it gave me a reason to go
    and buy the gyration Media Center and PC Universal Remote but the same thing
    occurred. The mouse works great but the keyboard still has the same problem.
    I tried using in a microsoft wireless keyboard on my laptop with no
    resolutions. Now, I am convince it's a Vista issue. I am glad I am not the
    only one having this problem. I hope Microsoft find this problem and fix it.


    Best regards

    I have just found something on the web and hope it will help you. It seems
    to helped me. Did you noticed that the missing letters occured when you are
    using yahoo mail beta? If this is the case then turn off your chat in the
    new Yahoo Mail and that should fix it. To turn off the new chat facility in
    Yahoo Beta. Go to top of screen, click on arrow next to yellow smiley face,
    then turn off chat. Your typing should now be much better.

    Try vacuum cleaner with a brush on the key board, or turn keyboard upside
    down and slap the keys to dislodge food particles or dust.
