    Typing through keyboard messed up after the installation of windows 8

    I was using windows 7 on my Dell laptop and it was working fine as well.Now i have installed windows 8 on it after purchasing original Windows 8 DVD. I am facing few problems while typing through keyboard. Sometimes,the cursor automatically jumps to the next line,sometimes put character after some delay. Any suggestion would be really appreciated.

    Re: Typing through keyboard messed up after the installation of windows 8

    First of all,try to type through the on-screen keyboard just to check whether the problem is related to some settings or faulty drivers.To do the same,Press "Windows key+W",type "on screen keyboard" in the search box and hit the enter button on your keyboard.You will see an option "On Screen Keyboard" on the left pane. Just click on it and turn on the screen keyboard.Type few sentences and check whether the same issue occurs or not. If everything goes fine then update your keyboard driver. To do the same,open "Device Manager" and try to look for "Keyboards" and expand it.Then right click on the "HID Keyboard device" and choose "Update driver software". It should fix your issue.However if it failed then run the Hardware and devices troubleshooter to know more about this issue.The steps for doing the same is given below:
    1. Press Windows key+W and type troubleshooting.
    2. Select Troubleshooting.
    3. Select view all option on the top left corner.
    4. Run hardware and devices troubleshooter.
    If it flashes any error messages,post the same in this forum.We will feel happy to assist you.

    The instakled device driver for the keyboard was mingled by the installed Windows8, and the whole thing is now a mess.
    You should go for a driver update.

    First uninstall the driver for keyboard, do it by : start--control panel--system and security--device manager--keyboard--driver--uninstall.

    After that from the same menu select Update Driver and fetch a driver from dell official website, and let the windows install that.

    After the driver installation things will be normal.
