Toshiba Portege keyboard typing errors.

by PDX_Bob / October 25, 2012 6:42 AM PDT

Sometimes while typing, the computer will substitute a number for a character or vice versa. I know I am typing the correct keys and sometimes it takes repeated times retyping to get the characters I want to register. Can someone tell me what could be causing this to happen? Thank you.

Does this happen in Word?

I found folk with Word and make this complaint. Word's autocorrect feature has to be turned off.

The typing errors occur mostly when typing in web pages. I have not noticed any specific applications that this happens or doesn't happen in, but I don't recall it happening in Excell.
