    A keyboard can be had for less than $10. A repair centre will think you have lost your mind so don't do that. Restate your present problem and I will help you. If changing keyboards does not change anything then your motherboard I/O controller is bad and that is not repairable.

    Was the keyboard connector still attached when you connected the usb keyboard?

The problem seems to be that the pressure pad underneath the key is stuck on the "activated" position. Taking the keyboard out would not affect the position of the pressure pad. Also attaching a USB key board will not make any difference since the original keyboard is still electrically connected and has priority over any external plug n play devices. A new set of keyboard pressure pads should solve this. I suggest taking it to your local computer repair centre.

I have a gateway laptop running windows 8 and all of a sudden my number pad stopped working. I've searched and read till my eyes feel like they're going to fall out, help!!


Have you pressed/un-pressed the NUMLOCK key?

OR

You may have a stuck key somewhere on your 10-key numeric keyboard. Sometimes dirt (coffee, dust, soda) is blocking the contacts to the circuit board from the keyboard.

I have all screws out of back of gateway ma3 all tabs are clear on top of key pad but wont come out


The only things you could hope to upgrade in a laptop that old is the RAM and the hard drive. if it's an x86 computer the most you get get is 4GBs of ram and maybe a 250GB IDE drive in that. Laptop's are not really meant for upgrading. It isn't cost effective to upgrade laptops anyways. Spend $300 on a new low end laptop and you will have something at least twice as powerful as this laptop you currently have.

Some keys doesnt work like the comma dot question


the problem may be of the sticky keys or of the keyboard. no else problem is seen in the keyboard.. so, if sticky keys are enabled, disable it from the accessibility options in control panel else change the keyboard !

Keyboard stuck in Fn mode, how do I get it out?


Hi,
Sounds like the "Num Lock" is on, the key should be at the top right hand side of the keyboard, just strike that key and the keyboard should return to normal.

Good luck
