Why does inserting the battery to my laptop affect the keyboard characters?


Dec 17, 2015
Acer aspire e1-571, with the battery attached, three chars on keyboard types double eg. Typing t gives tu. This ONLY happens with the battery attached. It's a new mobo, hard drive and keyboard. Also fresh install win 7. I am puzzled! Please help.

Please do try these troubleshooting steps that may help in solving that issue.
- Start by doing a hard reboot, remove the battery and unplug the AC adapter then press and hold the power button for 20 seconds and test it once it boots back up to the desktop.
- If it doesn't work do connect an external USB keyboard and test weather the same problem will persist or not.
- If it works fine using an external keyboard , do uninstall/reinstall the keyboard driver.
- If all these will not work that means it's a hardware problem (the keyboard itself).
