Some keys not responding on laptop keyboard

Specifically - a s d k l ; & are not working at all. There may be others but these are the only ones I've noticed so far.

These all worked yesterday (I think) and today they are not working ... is this a hardware issue or something else?

    Thanks but that's not it ...

    Additionally, I've found that there are no problems when using an 'external' keyboard plugged into the back of the laptop.

    Is my laptop keyboard shot? Is it simple to replace/repair?

Some of my keys on my laptop are not working.

Replace the keyboard with a new one. Laptop keyboards are not that expensive.

Make sure that the replacement is compatible with your computer. To know more about it, please visit the website of your computer's manufacturer.

You can also try a USB keyboard to check if the non-working keys work with the other keyboard.

I hope this helps!

My mouse is not working on my laptop, it wont move

Hello debbiestar34,
Typically on a laptop computer there is an extra set of keys called the function keys. You will notice these keys are identified (usually) by a different colour of text on the keys of your keyboard.
You can probably find a key labeled "Fn" or "Function" in the bottom left of your keyboard, between the "Ctrl" and "Alt" buttons. Once you've found that key, look at your other keys and you should see one that somewhat resembles the touchpad on your computer or a simple rectangle with a mouse cursor inside it.
If you've found both of those keys, start by pressing and holding the "Fn" key, then press the one for your touchpad then release both keys. That should work.

Some of the keys on keyboard do not work

Looks like it mush H/W failure. If you are really in need of using the Keyboard, try using the OnScreen Keyboard.(In windows its located under the SYSTEM TOOLS in ACCESSORIES.) Or Buy an external USB keyboard. And if your NUM keys don't work specifically try using the NUMPAD alone keyboard.

I recently have been having problems w/certain keys on my Apple Keyboard with Numeric Keypad. I used some wipes to clean it the other day...and almost immediately the spacebar & a lot of of other keys...

some of the fluid from the wipes must have short circuited the keyboard! you may have to invest in a new keyboard and keep it away from water based wipes this time!

My shift key wont work at all

Holding down both shift keys at the same time wont work. Chances are you have a dead key. use the other shift key instead. if a program is mapped to use specifically that shift key, remap it to the opposite one.

If you are using a desktop, replace the keyboard; if it is a laptop replace it if you can yourself, otherwise, call a computer technician.

Keyboard keys y h n and one of 6 keys not responding

Try another known working keyboard on the computer, if all the keys work then that means your other keyboard is bad. If you have the exact same problem then its something in the Operating system for the keyboard that needs to be checked.
