Defaulting as in date / time ?.... if that is the case ensure that you have put the bios battery back in correctly.... or replace the battery.

My keyboard works except some keys are not working?


Your question is not specific about specifically which keys work and which keys do not work and exactly what you mean by the keys not working, whether you mean there is no reaction at all when the relevant keys are pressed or whether it is just that incorrect characters result from pressing these keys.

If incorrect characters result from pressing certain keys towards the right of the keyboard, use the Fn key, bottom left, pressed simultaneously with the Num Lock key, top right, to toggle 'on' or toggle 'off' the Alternative Symbol function of some of the multi-function keys.

If there is no reaction at all when you press a significant number of keys, then there may have been liquid spillage damage to the NetBook. Liquid spillage damage can sometimes be resolved by partial disassembly of a NetBook/Notebook and wiping congealed liquids off with mild solvent or allowing internalized water to evaporate. This type of repair is best done by an experienced NetBook/Notebook repair center or technician.

If only one or two or a small number of keys do not work, then it might be that particles of some or other substance, trapped underneath the keys might be interfering with the function of the non-functioning keys. This can sometimes be resolved simply by inverting and gently shaking the NetBookso that any trapped particles come loose and fall out. Occasionally, individual key caps have to be removed and replaced after the obstructing particle has been removed.

If several keys are defective but the fault was not caused by liquid spillage or trapped particles, then the keyboard unit itself might be faulty and need to have its internal ribbon cable and cable connectors tested for cable damage or connector damage (typically either from liquid spillage, shock caused by dropping the computer or by previous unprofessional internal repairs). If no fault is found with the cable or the cable connectors, then the entire keyboard unit may have to be replaced.

When this happens, you should fully disassemble the notebook & thoroughly inspect its inside. Look for any traces of liquid on the circuit boards & on other components. On circuit boards, liquid damage appears in the form of whitish traces. These needs to be wiped off. This can be done using a tooth brush moistened with few drops of hand sanitizer liquid.
Check all internal connectors & make sure that no liquid seeped into them. Dry them if needed.
When you are done, re-assemble back the notebook.
If the liquid fell on the keyboard & you found out that the keyboard is no longer working, then you will have to replace the keyboard.

Laptop keyboard needs cleaning


I had a client with that problem--we removed the keyboard and tried to clean it. Turns out that our cleaning job was less than perfect because the laptop keyboard is mostly sealed. There was liquid that seeped down onto the motherboard as well--that we could clean up. The long and short of is--you will probably need to replace the keyboard. Of course, with nothing to lose, you could wash the keyboard and let it dry out thoroughly, plug it in, and see if it works. The key here would be the thorough drying. If you decide to try this chancy procedure, don't dry it with high heat. A hair dryer set on low might be the answer.
