    Hey there fellow HP victims!



    My dad has a DV9000 that's still under the 1 yr warranty and he purchased it thru Costco. He's been telling me his "B" "N" "Spacebar" keys stick or get stuck. Same for g'friend. (side note: she sent hers to HP for repair who took a nice 3 weeks to return)



    I can't get over how many post are on the web re: the same exact issue, yet, HP tries to act like you're ALWAYS the first person who's ever mentioned it before. Yeah right!



    Anyway, you're not alone. For my dad's problem, i'm going to try and get it taken care of thru Costco, since their service rocks and well.... can't really say the same for HP's service.



    G'luck......

It sounds like something with sugar was spilled on it, however there is another issue that could cause this. If the ribbon cable for the keyboard has jarred loose but not came entirely unplugged it could cause the same situation if its happening in all programs. If its just the keyboard usually they are not too expensive to have replaced.

If you have a sticky key that you know of you may have a couple that you haven't noticed. The number 2 key sticking usually means something was spilled on it at one time.If nothing is spilled you will only see the keys at the sides act up and usually the longer or larger ones. These act up from not hitting them straight but at an angle.

The next time it does this try thumping the keyboard to jar stuck keys loose. The key may look ok but is stuck just enough to do this. You just need to flick a finger at the keyboard to knock them loose. You may have to do this a few times before it dislodges the offender. On a normal keyboard you flip it over and knock on the back like knocking on a door to do this. On a laptop you can't hit it as hard.

If the keyboard keeps doing this your option is to replace it. Depending on the make and model a new laptop keyboard is about $45-$75 and is installed in a few minutes.

My inspiron keps missing some characters when i type ...is very annoying whn typing in passwords as you cant see what has been missed....works better with some programs...was really bad with yahoo...


Keyboard specially in laptops are connected to the main board via very tin flex wire underneath the keys, sometimes because of the frequent used and hard on pressing the keys, this flex can be easily damaged

I suggest you bring it to the service center and have it check

Some key are sticking cant type that good as normal, key are sometime hard to push , blow it ot with that stuff in a can


If they are still sticking after blowing the keyboard out you may have spill some form of liquid on it that is causing your problems.

If you are pretty adept you could carefully remove all the key caps and clean it out a little better.

If not you may want to consider taking it to a local repair shop.

Again if you are confident enough then laptop keyboards are not that expensive to replace (probably cheaper than a repair) It is usually a pretty simple task that would take anyone with some common sense about 15 -30 minutes to do.

In the mean time you could always buy a cheap USB or PS2 keyboard and use that (check which type you need)

Dell Inspiron 1318 Keyboard problem


If it is still under warranty just call Dell and have them send a replacement keyboard. If not, either try cleaning her laptop keyboard or just pick up a new one off some place like ebay for about $10.00 with free shipping.

Saitek Eclipse Keyboard Keys stopped working


this could very well be your OS as much as your keyboard. Try another board for a few days and see if it still happens. IF not...you found your culprit. Replace the keyboard or look for updated drivers if they exist.

LAPTOP KEYBOARD


Newer laptops don't have 'springs' they use rubber or silicone pads for support.

You could try prying the key open (with a thin clip or something) being careful not to damage it or the keys surrounding it.

Check for any debris or lint. Blow on it or just turn and shake it, you might find a staple or something.
