Hi there, can anyone help me solve my keyboard problem. My keyboard has given me crazy output. when i press w key it comes out w2, 5r etc. the back space and numbers 2, 3, 4,5 become w2 e4, r5 . I already tried pressing numlock and the rest of the blue colors keys but it didn't work. i also did what was suggested by somebody in this blog to reinstall the BIOS but it didn't work. am using and external keyboard now but i do need the built in keyboard to work properly.my laptop is just six months old. any help,pls.

The only problem that keyboard can have is when there is too much dust in the hollowed part of it it makes the keys to be wrongly spelt and if by mistakenly you relax on it or something resting on it when loading up your Post On Self Test then it can be seeing what is not even type on it with this information you can easily know what have happen to it then if there is nothing then your keyboard need a replacement.
ok

I have a Acer Aspire laptop 4810T. It turns on perfectly fine and everything shows up on the screen but it's so hard to see. The the screen almost appears to be black.


Press Fn key (at bottom left of keyboard) and while holding it down, press F6 key (at top center of keyboard). This should turn on the display screen backlight which had been turned of to save power.

ACER ASPIRE 4520 keyboard problem


In laptops with a small screen (14,15" ) the keyboard is accordingly smaller than for desktops, and there is no numeric keypads, or arrow pad. So the keys 7,8,9 0, U,I,O,P,J,K,L ,comma, dot, / have a triple function: the primary function, the shifted function, and a third accessed by an FN-Fx key combination. The actual key combination may depend on manufacturer. If that key combination has been activated, the foregoing keys perfom the third function they were designed for..
Read your laptop manual to find out how the Fn- function key works and deactivate the Fn-Fx combination responsible for your keyboard behavior..(this article was posted by k24674)..

or else u r keyboard is likely to b defective or ur ram or the system board..
lightly strike/tap the keypad using ur hand..
if u r a professional, open the keyboard..deep clean all the carbon contacts beneath the keys using Iso-Propyl alcohol..put/stick 'Carbon-Dots' (available in cheap level spare market) as n where necessary..

hope it'll work..
always better to seek professional supervision esp of ur system admin/vendor....

Key board problem


It would seem that the keyboard may be defective. It is a fairly standard keyboard layout, so SHIFT-2 should produce the @ sign. It looks to be a fairly cheap fix:

2 keys have come off acer aspire 4520


If the plastic hinges and the tiny rubber press contact are still on the keyboard, you can align the key over the plastic hinge and press firmly down until you hear the key click back in place.
OR
You can purchase a replacement keyboard from several companies on the Internet. I purchased one from Yall Store - Use this link

OR
You can use a full size USB keyboard and plug it into the laptop's USB port.
