Hah same thing happened to me.. but sucks really.. If the warranty is still in effect go on MAC support go to tech chat tell them what happened but don't say the cat deal or they might void warranty just say keys just wore out after constant use because you use keybinds for computer games.. So if the warrenty is intact they will send it to you for free if not it will cost like 20 bucks.. and ask them to send a guide on how to install the replacement keyboard if you dont know how.. but if they dont you can always youtube a tutorial video on how to install a replacement keyboard its really simple I did it for my Gateway Fx and they are very hard to replace keyboards with but I'm sure a mac will be easy.

Hope this helps

Number lock key


1. Please tap the NumLock key many times and see if it responds to the tap,

2. Probably your keyboard is in "Alt Fn" mode, so please try to hold the Fn key and tap the Fn key (I prefer to tap the left arrow and right arrow) and see if the keyboard is working properly.

3. Probably your keyboard is failed. It happens, even there is no spill accident. In this case, you need to replace the entire keyboard.

Acer Aspire 3680 laptop keyboard walked over by cat - now will not let me type - have cursor but no letters appear


Shut down the laptop and remove the battery . Now allow 15 minutes and then replace the battery back to boot again. If the PC does not respond with the keys, it must be checked if the cat had soiled the key pad and there is a short within.

Shift key doesn't work!


I think that you need a new keyboard a new computer will be two expensive for just one key on the keyboard

you can also try an external keyboard just one that you can plug into the USB port it will work out just fine

Spacebar not responding on Toshiba laptop Satellite


Since the spacebar is the most used key on the keyboard, it is likely a hardware failure of the spacebar itself. Replacement keyboards can be found on EBay and normally run about $20

2 keys have come off acer aspire 4520


If the plastic hinges and the tiny rubber press contact are still on the keyboard, you can align the key over the plastic hinge and press firmly down until you hear the key click back in place.
OR
You can purchase a replacement keyboard from several companies on the Internet. I purchased one from Yall Store - Use this link

OR
You can use a full size USB keyboard and plug it into the laptop's USB port.

Sounds like may be a stuck key on your keyboard, try unplugging keyboard long enough to see if it continues. If it turns out to be keyboard, try firmly (bang) each of the following keys several times: [Command] [Alt] left [Alt] right [Tab] [O]. Perhaps the function keys as well. I have had this "unstick" the problematic key before on different keyboards. Reconnect keyboard and see if that helps.

Acer aspire 3003wcli keyboard stopped responding


You probably activated the "Num Lock" accidently. Just hold down the FN and look for the key that says "num lock" Now you should have your keyboard back and the numbers will just type when you hit the numbers key. I did this to myself yesterday!
