Specific Keyboard buttons quite working

Hey Wyb,

I saw some of your recent postings (within a year) and thought I might as well run this by you before trying to deal with Gateway.

I'm having some keyboard issues with my Gateway 7426GX laptop. I feel they're specifically related to corrupt drivers caused by software that I installed for a keyboard known as ZBoard. I have tried uninstalling that software, even recently did a complete flush of the hard drive, but still no luck. The "B", "V", "Enter" and 3 arrow keys (excluding the left arrow) have quite working. Everything else is just fine. Nothing was ever spilled on the keyboard, and the keys push down comfortably.

If I plug a keyboard into the USB ports that keyboard will work just fine.

I do it a little odd that when I go into the control panel, the location for my standard keyboard is "plugged into keyboard port". Maybe thats the norm though. It's listed as a "Standard 101/102-Key or Microsoft Natural PS/2 Keyboard". The two system driver files are th 8042prt.sys and kbdclass.sys. I've updated kbdclass.sys with a newer version but can't find the 8042prt.sys.

Any ideas?
Appreciate any feedback!

I have a $120 10"

It's possible that the brushes may have worn out or a bad connection may have developed in them or at the brush holders. Open the motor, check the brushes and look for any overheating. One of the windings may have gone open circuit in the armature of the motor and in this case it probably isn't worth repairing.

I have a delta contractors table saw that wont start. It has a Marathon Electric Motor 62-044 that hangs off the back. It has capacitors rather than brushes. When you turn on the swithch it does nothing. I...

Most likely to quit suddenly is the switch.
My table saw switch broke recently, and at first I thought it was the motor.
Over the years I remember seeing table saws fitted with a handy box and ordinary light switch to replace the table saw switch.
Check for power at motor: Sometimes the wire connection from switch has access box on the motor where you can get in and check for power.

My 25-year old Craftsman radial arm saw was stored and not used in a damp shed for many years. I got around to completely refurbishing it, tuning it up, and making a great work bench for it only to find...

start with the capacitors. you may have 2, a start and a run capacitor. also you can spray the inside of the motor with WD-40 and turn it by hand until it feels loose.

Hello, How are you?, Well, the problem with my keyboard is; when i press some keys like, the "R" and "Y" or "U", they don't work. and i have to use a external USB keyboard.

I fixed a friends laptop recently different brand than your but exactly the same keys she had to bash them to make them work. My first thought was needed new keyboard. Was running vista messed up a lot so i decided a format and put win7 on and is now working perfect. I know this isnt a great answer but strange its the keys on a totally different brand laptop? Hope you get it sorted could you get back to me when you do and let me know? Im so curious now ....Hey possibly just uninstall the keyboard drivers in device manager reboot and see what happens when the pc reinstalls them? Cheers from Scott

Hello there, I have a Lite On SK-3211 1U

This product uses none-standard USB host controller and USB devices are not being enumerated properly within KVM. The company that designed this product is no longer in business.

Currently there no support for this specific keyboard/mouse on Belkin Dual User KVM over IP.

Cordless mouse and keyboard only work within three feet of sensor

I called Logitech. They said to get a new one. I guess it's still under warranty, so they'll probably send me a new one.

Remington electric chain saw 3.5 -14''

I just had my Rem. EL-8 (Mod#107624-02, 3 HP 11.5Amp) quit, too. It was less than 2yrs old, had very low hours and no abuse. I pulled it apart and found that a motor brush was burned out (at the brush electrical lead; the braided wire connecting to the winding). Unfortunately, I checked with Master Distributors ( ) and the brush assembly is no longer available. (For a less than 2-year old saw!!) They do have some parts for Remington saws, however.

Premature burnout seems to be a function of some combination of:
- using a too-light gauge extension cord for the amperage of your tool / length of extension. You can find recommendations for proper minimum gauge on the web. (This shouldn't have been the problem in my case because I used a 12-ga. 25' extension.) See:
- running too hard (big wood) for too long. I admit this seems pretty subjective; if the saw is cutting, why quit, right? But it's probably important to ease up and not let it get too hot.
- poor saw design. (internal parts don't match the power/amperage involved.)

I thought well I wonder what holding down other buttons would do to get rid of this cursed PLEASE WAIT issue.
I tried * and # together and hey presto it worked.
I did however have to go in and turn IP mode off.
