Last night I spilled water on my keyboard, it stopped working so I replaced it. The new keyboard is malfunctioning i.e. if I type 'b' I get 'bn'. Some keys do not work and some trigger enter. I tried multiple ports with no luck.

As well as this I'm getting 200kbs speeds on copying files from an external hdd when previously I may get 2mbs

I think I may have damaged the motherboard but not sure how any advice is appreciated

The original keyboard was texet, the new Polaroid. My brother has the same keyboard no issues (its brand new). Running Windows 7, AMD A8-3870 APU 4 CPUS ~3.0 GHz, GwForce GTX 670, 8GB DDR3. ASUS motherboard but unsure on the model (Typing with onscreen keyboard which is frustrating)

  • What are the brands of the keyboard and heck what kind of computer are you hooking it up to? What OS? Those details would help clarify what might be happening. – JakeGould Feb 14 '15 at 17:43

  • You should edit your question to provide those details. – JakeGould Feb 14 '15 at 18:20
  • Will do, didn't originally because the onscreen keyboard is so slow. Thanks – HelloSpeakman Feb 14 '15 at 18:22
  • Have you tried unplugging it and testing with your brother's keyboard? – James P Feb 14 '15 at 18:34

Your new installation may have not configured drivers correctly. Try deleate drivers for those hardwear and restart. next you may also try free tools like SlimDrivers to check and update your hardware / software configurations.
