Certain keys won't function on keyboard

Certain keys on the keyboard of my Vaio VGC-M1 have stopped working suddenly. I cannot use backspace, delete, 'e', 't', and a few other keys. I don't think anything has been spilled on it, what could the problem be?

Re: Certain keys won't function on keyboard

Could be that the connector from the keyboard to the mainboard is crooked. Try taking the keyboard off and wiggling the connector from the keyboard to the board so that it is a snugger fit.

Certain keys not working on zboard

remove the plug from the back of the motherboard (Purple)
Check the prongs inside of the male connector for damage and/or dirt.
all of those are TX and RX protocols which talk to your machine and send the events back and fourth.
If that does not work, it is due to water inside the mainboard of the keyboard. replace.

Keyboard Not working

Hi the problem you describe usually accurse when you have more data on your system than your memory can handle so it tries to compensate in so doing other functions such as the key board get effected. Look at what memory your system is running if it is less than 384 you may need to upgrade to say 512.Hope this helps

Could be that you just need to clean it. Use a air spraying tool to clean out the keyboard. You could also try taking these keys off the keyboard, clean it, and then put the keys back in. Shouldn't be that hard to do. I wouldn't take it in to get it fixed though as you can pay for a new keyboard for less.
