    Combination of letter and number appears on screen when typing Q,W,E,R,T,Y keys in windows xp

    I am facing some issues with my keyboard. I don't know whether it is a software or hardware issue so discussing here. When i press "Q" buttons on my keyboard,"Q1" appears on screen. Similarly pressing "w" results in "w2" and so on. What's the issue and what should I do to fix the same?

    It is not any software issue. I don't know whether you have noticed or not but when you are typing "Q,W,E,R,T,Y",you are getting the combination of letter and numbers and the numbers appears just above those character in your keyboard which means there is some electrical short in your keyboard. If you using a PC then replace the Keyboard and then check whether this issue occurs or not. If you are a laptop user then try using an external keybaord. I am sure that you won't face the same issue with new keyboard.

    From what you are experiencing it seems it is a hardware related issue,

    Only a service or a complete change of the keyboard can solve the problem,

    But before that just for once, go to ,

    CONTROL PANEL -- as you havenot mentioned which version of windows you are using, so my suggestion is to get into device driver section, uninstall the installed driver for the keyboard, install a fresh driver for keyboard from either microsoft site, or if you have any companion disk install from that. Reboot windows, check if at all there is any change there.

    Finally contact the selling outlet.
