Some keyboards have a function lock or f lock on them.Press that and it will light a led in most cases on the keyboard to show you that the f functions are on. There are also some BIOS settings that can determine how the key board works outside of windows. Small chance,but it may be in there too.

Some keys of my hp 2133 netbook is not working..wat should i do?


Restart the computer in safe mode (procedure is given below)

Start the computer and keep tapping the F8 Key on top of the keyboard
You will be in advanced options menu,
use your up and down arrow keys on the keyboard and choose safe mode and hit enter.


In safe mode close if any window opens, open note pad or any application and test the keys, it it is not working even in safe mode, then the issue is with the keypad, you have to get it replaced.

Capslock needs to be on to get lower case and number keys dont work yet number lock will allow symbols to work but not then letter keys that have small numbers in left hand corners. Problem is on a Sony...


Please check if the accessibility option is enabled to convert your number pad to mouse keys, if you have a full numberpad.

Since you have not specified what it the model number of the computer, i am giving your common steps.

Also check restart the computer in safe mode (keep tapping the F8 key while you restart and choose the safe mode option using the up and down arrow key and hit enter) and check if the number keys work.

LX 300 Keyboard and Mouse: mouse works but keyboard doesn't...


Hi,

You can hit Window+U at the Welcome Screen, this will turn on the on-screen keyboard. Reinstalling the drivers should fix the problem

............................................................
Also to enter save mode, when the system powers up hold down F8 Key. Use your arrow keys to move to "Safe Mode" and press Enter key.

Please post your feedback.

Just bought Acer laptop (series 5517) and the keyboard appears to be locked. How do I unlock it??? Please help 9/27/09. Thanks!


DOES THE MOUSE WORK OK?
If not, re-boot and press the [F8] key to get into the "Safe Mode" screen. See if the keyboard works in Safe Mode.
If so, go tothe Control Panel and select "keyboard" and update the drivers.
If not, then re-boot and select the [F8} key again, but choose "Start computer in last known good configuration"
If it still doesn't work, but the mouse does, then the keyboard is disconnected or the connector is loose; open 'er up and connect it.

Logitech keyboard,s keys are not working


Modern keypads arent as great as old ones where each key had its own switch and you could just open and fix it. new keypads have everything interconnected inside them. The only thing to do is buy a replacement, But if you really love this one keypad, you could try and clean it out with a blower and make sure the keys that are failing arent failing because of dust or unwanted debri.

Keyboard will not work during post or boot


The problem you are experiencing is caused by a setting in your BIOS. I recommend getting or borrowing a keyboard with a PS/2 port or getting a USB to PS/2 Adapter for Keyboards. Once you do, you can change the setting in the BIOS to accept USB keyboards. If you are already familiar with BIOS then you don't need to read further to enable USB support, other wise I recommend continuing to get familiar with what you are looking for.

When you get a keyboard that uses a PS/2 port, go to the BIOS for your computer. Go to "Advanced" and search for "USB Legacy Support" or something similar in terms of "USB", "keyboard", or "input". Once found, you will have to change the setting to enable USB. If the name of the setting has "USB", then you want it enabled. If it has "keyboard" or "input", then look at the available options for USB and use it unless it has something similar to "dynamic" or "auto-detect" which are better choices.

After finding the right setting and selecting the correct option, go to "Exit" and select "Exit and save changes". Then the BIOS will save and reboot the computer or continue on as if you didn't open up the BIOS.

Broken Key


You could look for a key that would physically fit from another keyboard that you'd "slaughter" for that part. The dimensions must fit, and the fastening method. Here's what you'd do to remove the key, and this would also give you some info on the fastening method: http://theonegreatx.com/2006/12/08/how-to-clean-your-logitech-g15/

Keyboard does not respond prior to windows launch


Have you configured the Usb Legacy support in the bios? If not you'll need to enable Usb keyboard support in the bios for the keyboard to function correctly or at all in a 16bit environment.
