It seems to me that you have the NumLk activated, deactivate it by pressing Fn + NumLk, hope this works!

This means th news keyboard driver has some effect on your laptop keboard.
try to go to the Panel Control and then System, then Hardware
uninstall your keybord driver & restrt your pc, then it will tell you you have a new device (keyboard) & then will automatically install the suitable driver.
try your latters again, if the problem still going on, try to get the keboard driver cd you got with the laptop when you first bought it.
I hope things go fine with you trying this. If not, let me know more about that plz.

    Hi again!
    well, look, the Computer can remember only one keybord, so when you plugged the USB keyboard the first time it could have probably replaced the old one, and yet even two keyboards are on together they function as one unit. Try clicking on the Caps Lock button, you see the green led on both keyborads at the same time.
    If you can provide me with your asus laptop version, I would be more helpful.



Thanks again for your reply,

When i try to go on safemode, may laptop keyboard is working perfectly but unfortunately when i goes back to normal mode, the problem goes back.

Its notebook ASUS S5N,

Water on the keyboard of my asus notebook eee PC4G- some keys not working. what can i do?

You could remove keyborad from notebook and use a humidity extractor but maybe the electrical contact keys got oxidized, if this is the case the whole keyboard should be replaced, a cheaper solution should be to get an external usb mini keyboard.

Problem: remove keyboard ASUS K72JK-TY043V.Thanks

The Asus K72JK-TY043V Notebook PC is one of the Asus K series of Notebook PC's.

This shows how to remove the Keyboard,

Shown is a disassembly guide, and of course you do not need that.

What I am referencing to is midway down the page under the bold heading >

Removing Keyboard.

The Keyboard is held in, by plastic tabs that are on the Palm Rest Cover.

These tabs are spring loaded. You press against each spring loaded tab, and depress it.

This action unlocks the Keyboard from the spring loaded tab.

There are Five spring loaded tabs.

The spring loaded tabs are located above the following keys;

1) Esc key
2) F5 key
3) F9 key
4) Prt Scr
5) End

Use a small flat bladed screwdriver such as a Jewelers flat tipped screwdriver.

Carefully press the tab TOWARDS to LCD screen.

Once a tab is depressed it unlocks. Go to the next tab.

The back of the Keyboard is towards the LCD screen.
Lift up on the back of the Keyboard.

DO NOT try to remove it at this time, as there is a flat cable attached to the Keyboard.

The Keyboard cable is an FFC.
Flat Flex Cable.

The Keyboard FFC does NOT have a connector attached to it.
The connector is permanently mounted to the motherboard.

The Keyboard's FFC removes from the connector on the motherboard. Just a flat cable hanging from the Keyboard.

The connector on the motherboard is a ZIF connector.
Zero Insertion Force.

This particular ZIF connector has a Lock Clip on it, that is slid slightly to one side.

As you view the flat flex cable coming into the connector, and above the connector, the clip is slid to the Left to unlock.

NOT very far. Approximately 2 Millimeters, or close to 1/16th of an inch.

Have questions please post in a Comment.

Need to replace broken key on keybord. plastic appartus on key underside broke

Remove sticky tape securing the keyboard cable to back of the keyboard.Part of the keyboard cable is glued to the keyboard. Carefully separate the cable from the keyboard.Start peeling off the aluminum protective film Remove the protective film. After the protective film is removed it's really hard to attach it back to the keyboard because it's deformed.Most laptop keyboards have some kind of plastic separators.
These separators secured on the back of the keyboard.
Plastic pins are melted on the back of the keyboard and retain separators in place.Push all plastic pins though wholes on the keyboard.Start removing the separator.The plastic separator has been removed.
Now you'll have to remove all key caps.
Before you start removing key caps, make a picture or xerocopy of the keyboard so you know the order in which keys are attached to the keyboard.In order to remove the key cap carefully lift it up with your fingers.Remove the key cap so the hinge underneath stays connected to the keyboard.
Some big keys have a different design.
In addition to the hinge, some big keys (Back space or Space bar for example) might have an additional support bracket.Remove the key cap with the support bracket. As you see, the key hinge stays connected to the keyboard.Some laptop keyboards might have blank covers on the left and right sides from the up arrow key.Lift up and remove the blank cover.All keyboard key caps and plastic separators have been removed.Now you can start removing key hinges - key lifting mechanisms.Carefully separate the key hinge from the keyboard.
Each key hinge has two parts - external and internal pieces.
When you remove the hinge, try to keep these parts connected to each other the same way they are connected on the keyboard.If the external and internal pieces got separated, you can assemble them together.If you following this guide to repair the keyboard, I would recommend to keep all hinges in the right order.
The keyboard has two sheets laying one on the top of another.
Remove the sheet with silicone (or rubber) nipples.Remove the second sheet with traces.Both sheets have been separated from the keyboard base.The sheet with traces has two layers and all traces are running between these layers.In order to access and repair traces you'll have to separate to layers from each other.The keyboard has been disassemble.
As you see it's not easy to disassemble a laptop keyboard and even harder to put it back together.
Is it worth repairing? Probably not. These days you can find a new laptop keyboard very cheap.

Half of my keys arent working, some of these keys are w, t, e, a, s, p, r, i think there are a few more

try to use a USB external keyboard. if it works fine this proves that your problem is on your keyboard. If so try cleaning up your keyboard if u can remove it from your laptop but i suggest let experts do it. And if your notebook still has a warranty left you can always use that..

Trouble seperating top cover from base/mobo / asus f3s notebook

Have you removed the keyboard, sometimes there is a screw under the keyboard that holds the top and bottom of the case together.
Most laptops have clips/indents that clips top and bottom half of the case together. Start on one side, preferrably at an opening where the CD/DVD drive is located and gently apply pressure to separate the case along that edge. Once you free a catch/clip start working along that edge and continuing around to each side of the case.
