Turn it off then on. See if that helps.

Click on start, right click My Computer or computer on vista systems, select properties, select the hardware tab, select device manager. Select keyboards, right click the keyboard, select to uninstall it. Select Action, Select scan for hardware changes. It should find the keyboard and reinstall it.
See if that helps

Turn the laptop off, remove the battery. Remove any screws in where the battery was. There may be none, two or three screws, depending on the model.
Open the laptop all the way pushing the monitor back as far as it goes.
Next you will pry up the plastic piece the power button is connected to. On the right or left side of the plastic piece should be a notch that looks like you could insert a small flat blade screw driver in, that's what it's for. Carefully pry up and wiggle the long plastic piece free. The keyboard is connected by two or three screws at the top. Remove them. Slide the keyboard toward the monitor and it should come free. See and remember how the keyboard is connected. Remove it's cable from the laptop then reconnect it. Put it all back together in reverse order. See if that helps.

If that doesn't help then you need a new keyboard. If a new keyboard doesn't solve the problem, the motherboard needs replacement.

Where is hash button on dell 1525 keyboard?

Hold down both the Shift and 3 keys at the same time. That's the usual combination for QWERTY keyboards.

Shift key is not work on fujitsu life book

You may remove the key and remove any dust in there and place it back. This should fix the problem

Or else i think you have to change the keyboard. But in some cases, the keyboard is embedded to the motherboard. So that might be expensive, so in that case, try to use an external keyboard.

Generally, the keys on a portable keyboard are non-repairable. The keyboard is a Customer Replaceable Unit (CRU) and if under warranty, Dell should send a replacement, If out of warranty, Ebay is a good source for a keyboard and they generally run about $20

This could be a few things. First uninstall the drivers for the key board from the device manager, then reboot. The machine will find and reinstall the drivers. If the problem persists, then check and clean the connection on the keyboard, and clean the keyboard itself. At this point, if you still have the problem, your only option is to replace the keyboard.

Keyboard issue

which operating system is installed?

in windows xp, go to Control Panel -> Regional and Language Options -> Languages Tab
click Details

Under Installed services, the combinations of language and keyboard settings, currently available are listed.
The bold items are the active language, and the bold sub-item is the selected keyboard setting.
To add a new setting, click add and select the desired language and keyboard setting. I don't know which keyboard setting you need/want. Depends on where you live.
Also delete the keyboard layouts and languages, which you don't need.

A nice keyboard shortcut to change to another keyboard layout and language, is Left Alt+Shift. This switches to the next item in the list.
