Re: keypad problem

Hi smoking tiger, The answer is probably, depending on what it is. If its sticky (dried soda, food) then its going to be hard for the typical user. If its just something loose then you can try the following: -Turn the laptop upside down and shake. -Buy a can of compressed air from any office or computer supply shop. Make sure you buy the kink with a small thin plastic pipe you insert into the nozzle. If you?re careful you can insert that underneath the keys and try blowing the material out. Be careful to hold the can upright otherwise you?ll shoot out liquid which could damage the key switches or parts. If that doesn?t work the typical user should take it to a local authorized repair shop. They have the skills to safely remove the keyboard, clean and if necessary replace. If you feel you have the tools and mechanical aptitude let us know and I?ll get you some instructions on keyboard removal. Also please don?t forget to rate the posting.

How do i fix toshiba satellite C850D laptop some keys not working

1) open the buttons and clean underneath them by a toothbrush.
2) remove the keyboard (you can see how to remove it online or get back to me if you can't find it) and clean the wire belt gently, maybe something is stuck in there.
3) if the above didn't work and you don't want to spend money on a new keyboard, try using a keyboard app.
4) the best desperate solution (which i used to solve my problem) is to use SHARP KEY app, which enables you to switch a key to an alternative, less used button.

Home key stuck

Gently pull the key off, clean underneath and then carefully replace it. It is common for keys to get stuck. The mechanism beneath the key varies but careful inspection will let you know how to put it back on. Most times, you just push it on. Be carefull!! Don't force things.

How do i unstick keys, for an acer aspire 5532? The "n" key is sticking, and I have to push hard to get it to work. Can i remove it, and then clean undereath it? Or do I have to work aroud it? I don't know...

on most models of laptops, you can remove the cover for the joints that hold on the LCD and underneath you'll find a few screws that can be removed to allow for the keyboard to be taken out, and I would subjest not using any strong cleaners for when you take the keyboard off. if the cleaner is too strong, it might break the keyboard and also remove the painted letters and numbers on the keys =P. when cleaning the board, I recommend rubbing alcohol and a thin cloth to get under the keys. The reason being that the alcohol evaporates within 40 seconds to 80 seconds after application thus keeping the logic unit from becoming wet. That way you'll be back in business not long after you finish cleaning.

hope that helped, good luck

I have a few months old Toshiba Satellite M300

There is a button that activate and deactivate the keypad check if when you clean the keypad you touch a button by mistake that deactivate the mouse and click it again.

Cursor bounces around, doesn't release when highlighting

Does your laptop have a touch pointer within the keypad? This can cause the problem you're experiencing. Did you try turning the track stick off in the touchpad settings?

Laptop Buttons clean

Hi there,

Turn you laptop upside down, you’ll find a few screws with a symbol that looks like a keyboard.
Unscrew these screws(and ONLY these).
Turn it again, open, and find about 4 "slides" in between the F-buttons. Slide them toward the front and lift the keyboard up from the F- buttons. Be careful not to break the thin film. The film can be lifted from the seal, again with care.
Unscrew all the screws keeping the keyboard together.
Then clean, and know why you shouldn’t drink and drive at the same time - sorry that’s in a all together different area :-)

Teis -> don’t forget to vote, - thank you.

Keyboard on my Medion MD 40812 PC Notebook will not work

Hi Steve, its kinda hard to advise you considering your limited in what u can do, if you are not able to get into the bios or into safe mode using the keys on the keypad, only thing i would suggest that would be worth checking is the cable for the keypad, to check that just remove the keypad and underneath it there is a cable try taking it out and putting it back in, If the machine lets you into safe mode or bios let me know should be easy enough to fix. And by any chance did your daughter spill anything on the keypad?.. and if you aint sure how to remove keypad just ask will give you more details.. let me know how you get on.. John

Top left click button only works some times

I doubt it's something underneath other than a pressure switch of some type, look at this page and download new drivers for the touchpad and try them first before attempting a self repair.
