in the settings or properties of the keyboard you will find a list of keyboard lay outs
one is british(english) which puts the letters in different positions to an American ( english ) keyboard
If I remember rightly , the list includes keyboards in different languages
select the one suitable for your language ( be careful between the british and american layouts ( both known as qwerty boards) as certain keys and key functions will be different
select what you want, apply and ok
Keyboard issues are relatively easy to troubleshoot. If the cu has another keyboard available then try that keyboard or if the cu has another system avaialble then test the keyboard on that system. Remember when the keyboard is unplugged the system will usually need to be rebooted before it will work again.<br />
<b>Wireless Keyboard:</b><br />
If only some of the keys don't work skip to the section <b>Some Keys Don't Work</b> below.<br />
<li>Resynchronize the keyboard. Press the connect button on the keyboard for 5 seconds. Then press the connect button on the receiver for 5 seconds
<li>Change the batteries.
<li>Try reseating the receiver if possible.
<li>Try positioning the keyboard closer to the receiver.
<li>Skip to the section <b>Generic Troubleshooting</b> below. </li></ol>
<b>Some Keys Don't Work:</b><br />
<li>Check if any of the num lock key, shift lock key, etc are causing the issue. This is especially prevalent on laptops which don't have a distinct numeric keypad.
<li>If it's only the multimedia or hotkeys that don't work then try installing the specialized multimedia keyboard software that came with the system/keyboard.
<li>Try reseating the keyboard and rebooting.
<li>Go into <b>Accessibility Options</b> in <b>Control Panel</b> and check that <b>Sticky Keys</b>, <b>Filter Keys</b> and <b>Toggle Keys</b> are all switched off.
<li>Check if the problem occurs in the BIOS. A good screen to test with is the create BIOS password screen if the keys don't work here then a new keyboard is in order.
<li>Continue on to <b>Generic Troubleshooting</b>. </li></ol>
<b>No Keys Work:</b><br />
<li>Try reseating the keyboard and rebooting.
<li>Try power draining the system. This can be particularly effecitive with a laptop.
<li>If this is USB try a different port.
<li>Try entering BIOS - if you cannot get into BIOS then the keyboard probably needs to be replaced.
<li>Go on to <b>Generic Troubleshooting</b> below. </li></ol>
<b>Generic Troubleshooting:</b><br />
<li>Try uninstalling and reinstalling the keyboard driver and reboot
<li>Try system restore back to before the problem occurred
<li>Check for malware or 3rd party software that may be interfering with the function of the keyboard.
<li>FFR or replace/upsell a new keyboard. </li></ol>
test the keyboard for regional , languages in control panel, and set up the keyboard languages.and try again. However you can restore the computer use the "system restore" to the laste date that you know was working good. and fix it You can enable the Hot KEYS, in BIOS setup . God bless you
Click on the "Customize" button next to the first pull down menu. Sometimes these settings can interfere with your keyboard.
Make sure that, at the bottom of the "Customize" dialogue, your measurement system is set to whatever system your region uses. Once that tab in "Customize" is all set, move over to "Currency," "Time," and "Date," making sure that their settings are correct.
Click "Apply" for both the Customize window and the Regional and Language Settings window.
Test out the keys using a word processing program such as Notepad or MS Word. If the problem persists, it may be a hardware issue.
And if the above steps didn't work then your keyboard may be broken. Take a screw driver, cotton, and "spirit or aciton" and eraser "rubber". And then open or untie the screw of your keyboard and slowly remove all the keys and try to remove the carbon and gently wipe out all the keys attachment by applying the spirit and wipe out with cotton or rubber "eraser" gently where there is dirt. Then Check out whether there is disconnection or not?. And fix it as before and tied up all the screw it and fit in your CPU and see whether it's working or not if not my comment is to buy "purchase" a new one. All the Best!
Bios Can be reset doing like this "take extreme care"
I would suggest to carefully look over the motherboard for each and every jumper.
. Different VAIOS with different motherboards work differently, so you have to spend some time with a strong light. Look for jumpers and pins labeled: PW, Pwd, spwd, opwd, Paswd, and anything else that could conceivable be used to demark the password pin. Remove the jumper and reboot.
Alternately, removing the CMOS battery for four hours will generally take away any password settings... some require 12 hours... most require 20 minutes, but you never know. This will mean you will have to reset everything in the BIOS when you install it... date, time, boot order, etc
***** BIOS Can be updated like this have a look on it *********** Start/Control Panel/Performance and Maintenance/System/Hardware/Device Manager/System Devices/
Then right click on: "Microsoft System Management BIOS Driver" and "Update Driver..."
Then "Yes, this time only" and "Next"
Then "Recommended" and WAIT
If your drivers are actualized it wouldn't find anything
y dont you try to connect the keyboard to another computer and check out whether there is any problem with the keyboard also... after this u will know whether it is a problem with the keyboard or not...
1. if your keyboard is old, you may want to spend either money, on a new keyboard, or time, cleaning your keyboard as you may have some kung underneith causing the keys to stick.
2. do try another key board and see if that corrects the issue (get rid of the current problem keyboard). try the keyboard on another computer and see it works fine. if it does your problem may be with the connector on the motherboard, you may have to get usb keyboard or you may have to replaced your motherboard.
3. if your keyboard is a special new keyboard you may have to look for updated drivers for it instead of using the drivers that come with the operating system.. look into the keyboard manufacturer's website for updated drivers..
4. go to control pannel> keyboards and look into the hardware tab and look for properties, make sure the status of the device is "working properly" if not reinstall or updated drivers.
5. check your possible bios updates: if your keyboard is a ps/2 (mini 6 pin din). look for for updates for your bios on motherboard manufacturer website.
post more details of your device and issues and we'll try to help.
