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.

EDIT: 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.
 
Hi,

Please do try these troubleshooting steps that I suggested to others who had the same concern.
- Start by checking if your keyboard layout is set to United States.
- If this will not work uninstall/reinstall the keyboard driver.
- Open Device Manager, right click on the keyboard driver and select Uninstall.
- Reboot your laptop once uninstalled and it should reinstall the driver automatically upon reboot.
- Do test it again after the reboot and see if the problem has been resolved.
- If it doesn't work connect and external USB keyboard then test it and see if it will work normally or not.
- If it does work that could mean that the built in keyboard was damaged.
- Your last option if it works normally using an external keyboard is to do a factory reset.
- If factory reset will also not work that means the built in keyboard is damaged.

Thank you for your ideas.

I've tried everything apart from the external USB keyoboard which I don't have at my disposal now, I'll 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.
