Hi Lizardo -

The best bet for resolving this problem would be to replace the keyboard. The part can be ordered easily on the internet. It's a replaceable part that's very simple to do.

Take care,

Michael

Have a Gateway M285e laptop that the letter 'e' on the keyboard doesn't function. Will cleaning the keyboard resolve this issue? Thanks


It is possible that there is something sticky keeping the "e" key form working. Removing the key and cleaning around it carefully with alcohol or alcohol water 50/50 or 100% mix might free it up. Use Que-tips or something like that. try to clean around it first. If that does not work try gently lifting up on the key with a small screw driver or knife. You may hear a small pop. this could go either way for you good or bad, so be car full. then try cleaning around the spot ware the key was, gently replace the key.
You may also consider plugging in a cheep $10.00 key board and see if this works. I spilled a large drink in min and needed to use an auxiliary key board until I replaced the computer.

Non functioning keys due to spilled wine on Acer Aspire 7520-5311


It's most likely done , shut down, remove battery, remove keyboard , try to clean. Replace if necessary. Rarely does liquid of any type do electronics any good.

Keybd keys are sticking


Be prepared to buy a new keyboard... Remove AC and DC power before working on laptop. Many laptop keyboards come off with the removal of 1 to 5 screws from the bottom. Some, however, require the palm rest to be removed, then a couple of screws that hold in the keyboard. Be careful when removing and replacing cables.After removing keyboard, rinse with water and let dry thoroughly before re-attaching and powering up. You cannot remove individual keys, so don't try.

honestly you cannot just add the dimm and you may not be able to replace it with the one you got either.I WOULD TAKE IT TO A PC REPAIR take your new dimm with you and they will install it for you or at least tell you if it can be done.

Sticky keyboard


You can carefully take off the keys and pop them back on. Use alcohol to wipe up any stickiness.

Sticky keys


Dear rwertheim


Try the following guide

http://www.laptoprepair101.com/laptop/2007/03/20/key-fell-off-keyboard/

There are no guides from Gateway for the keys available for the but this guide will be more than enough to help you through this one in order to remove them. Its should be completely the same principle.

Cleaning the keys should be done without alchohol based cleaners because the lettering might be erased. Use some soap and warm water instead and gently scrab with a soft brush the bottom of the keys.

Please remember to take out your laptop battery/ac adaptor in any case since you will be working at hardware level with your equipment.

Regards, and I wish you no more sticky keys!
