Key bounced off the keyboard.

Hey, I managed to push my z key too many times and now the key is loose. Right now I can still use the key but the key is sorta just floating there. How do i put it back the way it used to be? A few illustrations would be swell.

Re: Key bounced off the keyboard.

If its been popping off for a while, the best thing would be super glue... if you dont think you've put it on correctly, take it to your local PC store (they should do it for free, or want like 5,10 bucks), or you can buy a new keyboard.

    Why my asus a3000 keyboard not function correctly when i push U I O P the function is number when i push this key

    NumLk (Numbers Lock) has been turned on. Pushing U I O P results in 4 5 6 * and pushing J K L results in 1 2 3. NumLk allows a block of keys on the right side of the keyboard to function as a numeric keypad to facilitate easier entry of numbers or numeric related data. There is an indicator that will be on when NumLk is on. To turn NumLk off, you need to push the key that has NumLk on it. It may be combined with a function key in which case you will need to hold down the Fn key while pushing the NumLk. If you manage to push the right key(s), the NumLk indicator should turn off and the keyboard will revert back to its normal operation (without the numeric keypad).

    How do I take off teh keyboard digits to clean underneath - after spilling melted chocolate on some keys they are stiff and sticky.

    1. Remove the old keyboard key by putting the tip of your fingernail underneath the top right of the key you want to clean.

    2. Lift the key upward to remove the key.

    3. Push the hinge into place on the keyboard, and put the rubber spring piece into place.
    4. Align the cleaned key on the keyboard so that it is in the correct place.
    5. Push the key firmly in place, and move it slightly around until you hear a clicking sound.

    When I press the caps lock key on my gell latitude d620 it makes a loud beep. how can i stop this?

    The problem is in your keyboard or the caps lock key. It seems that that the capslock key is stuck. Better to inspect that key if there is dirt that is causing it to stick, if there is none, then the contact point of that key is the problem, maybe the rubber base of the point could no longer bounce back every time it is unpressed. Second, you may change your keyboard by buying a new one, but this would require a technician for the installation or you may buy an external keyboard as another option. Lastly, you may go to the brand service center and let them check it, if it is under warranty no fees will be charge.

    I pushed a bunch of buttons on my keyboard and i somehow managed to lock my function key. if i push my arrow keys my volume changes. ho do i unlock my function key?

    Push the same 'function' key, to unlock it, and thus return to "normal" mode.

    Or, turn the computer off, then turn it on.

    The shift key on my laptop keyboard has stopped working. I removed it to try to fix and now can't get it back on.

    Hi Thanks for your question
    In most laptop keyboards, attaching keys is pretty painless. Try to attach little plastics to the laptop first and once they're sitting clipped in try to attach the key. Just put the key in the right place and push it down. You should hear noticeable "click" once it's in. Do not hesitate to ask more questions in case you need further assistance. Fixya team will be more then happy to help you. Good luck.

    Q key keps printing

    Understand and use (or make sure they’re turned off) keyboard Accessibility Options. There are several types of help for those with typing difficulties, namely:
    StickyKeys is an accessibility feature designed for people who have difficulty holding down two or more keys at a time. When a shortcut requires a key combination such as CTRL+P, StickyKeys will enable you to press one key at a time instead of pressing them simultaneously.
    FilterKeys: You can set Windows to ignore keystrokes that occur in rapid succession, or keystrokes that are held down for several seconds unintentionally.
    Bounce Keys: If you bounce your fingers on keys inadvertently, Bounce Keys will ignore repeated keystrokes until some time has passed. You choose the time period.
    Repeat Keys and Slow Keys: The computer will ignore brief keystrokes according to the time limits you set. To access these Options and turn them off or on, go to your Control Panel– click Start >Settings >Control Panel >Accessibility Options.
    By default it opens to the keyboard tab. If you are experiencing a sudden onset of bizarre typing behavior, your first step is to visit here and ensure that there are no checks in the three checkboxes, which indicates these Options are in use.
    I mentioned that shortcuts ‘activate’ these features — such as Tab+Enter, and a couple of Alt+a letter– and so you may have turned them on unintentionally.
    If you do have some difficulty with your typing, such as happens when a Mr. Arthur Itis comes to visit, or/and if you have tremors, here is where you can enable these aids and tweak their settings to get the most benefit from them. Click on the “Settings” button to see the choices. Below is the FilterKeys Settings dialogue.
    In the case mentioned, my client had first held down the Shift key long enough to activate FilterKeys (because a finger “rests” there). The lady was an extremely fast typist, and this setting ignored her strokes as being too short. Since she has no use for this tool, I recommended that she uncheck the top checkbox and disable the activating shortcut.
    This screenshot shows the settings for StickyKeys, and unless you have trouble holding down more than one key at the same time — such as Ctrl+Alt+Del to activate Task Manager — I suggest you uncheck the top checkbox here as well.

    My f10 light is permanently on...

    Please try this but may I ask if you have an antivirus software? Please go to the device manager (Start-Control Panel-Hardware-Device Manager) then please select the keyboard by clicking on it then select uninstall or go to properties-driver tab-uninstall. Then please restart your laptop. If this does not work, please try to reinstall the OS or do the reformat. If this does not work either then that is a hardware problem. Hope one of these works. Thank you.
