Both my space bar and M key are off. I dont know how to fix it.


There are multiple different designs for laptop keys - so the exact procedure may vary from one machine to another. A good source for instructional videos is:http://www.laptopkey.com/installation_guides.php#modnum

In your case, I would order and replace the existing keyboard, and keep the old keyboard for parts should a key come off in the future.

If you've never replaced a laptop keyboard before, the procedure isn't difficult, but you need to exercise extreme care when disconnecting/connecting the ribbon cable to the motherboard. If you break this connector, you'll end up having to replace the motherboard.

You can find replacement keyboards, and instructions, easily by typing in "Inspiron 1420 keyboard replacement" in Google.

Good luck!

Repair a button on the keyboard sony vaio


Sometimes it's easier to just replace the keyboard. If you can find the key then on some computers it's easy to put on, others are not worth the time.

Look on eBay for a keyboard. Just type your model followed by keyboard. Ex: Sony Vaio VPCCW26FA Keyboard. You'll see keys and keyboards.

Shift key not working


You have 2 Shift keys on the keyboard. If the other shift key is working then the shift key that is not working is defective. You should consider replacing the keyboard on your laptop. There is no setting on Windows that can disable the shift key.

**Note : If both Shift keys are not working, Try to check if sticky keys feature on windows is on. Sticky keys should be disabled. To disable sticky keys, Click on start and Go into control panel > Accessibility Options, and under keyboard there is sticky keys. Remove the tick and click apply and OK.

**If "Use Sticky Keys" is unchecked, that means sticky keys is disabled.

Shift key is not work on fujitsu life book


You may remove the key and remove any dust in there and place it back. This should fix the problem

Or else i think you have to change the keyboard. But in some cases, the keyboard is embedded to the motherboard. So that might be expensive, so in that case, try to use an external keyboard.

Keyboard key issue in laptop


The metal bar needs to be clipped on to the plastic shift key. Look under the plastic shift key and you can see recess where the metal bar fits. Place the shift key over these recess and push down until it clicks into place.

FN key


(FuNction key) A keyboard key that works like a shift key to activate the second function on a dual-purpose key, typically found on laptops to reduce keyboard size. It is different than the function keys F1, F2, etc. It is also a real nuisance when the PageUp and PageDn keys are placed on the Up and Down Arrow keys and have to be activated by pressing the Fn key.

Hope this helps you,
George

As long as you have all the pieces (key,levers and spring) you should be able to reassemble them. Every manufacturer designs these mechanisms differently so there is not a generic way to put it back together. If the parts or keyboard were damaged then your only recourse is to order a new keyboard because individual parts are not available for purchase (unless your lucky to find them on ebay).
