Re: Keyboard

Although those are not the keys that typically go out first due to wear I suspect that the keys are just worn. Typically this type of problem starts off with a key occasionally not working unless you press it hard and progressing to the point where it doesn?t work at all. The fix will probably be replacing the keyboard which runs about $50 on Ebay (US layout). If you are adventuresome you can try removing the keyboard and cleaning the key contacts but be warned laptop keyboards are not designed to be repaired. Chances are fair that your efforts may cause more problems. Let us know if you have any other questions and please don?t forget to rate this post.

Dell latitude d820. All of the arrow keys except for the down arrow key are no longer function which is not a huge problem except now i can no longer control thedisplay brightness. Is there a way i can...

Hi, you might want to blow out the keyboard with some canned air. Dust can cause contact problems. One way would require an external keyboard. Hook up the keyboard, boot up the computer and go into system set up. When the Dell screen comes up it will show what key to push. I think it's F2. Scroll through the BIOS until you get to display settings and set the brightness. When done push F10 and save your settings. The display brightness will be set.

Some of my keys on my laptop are not working.

Replace the keyboard with a new one. Laptop keyboards are not that expensive.

Make sure that the replacement is compatible with your computer. To know more about it, please visit the website of your computer's manufacturer.

You can also try a USB keyboard to check if the non-working keys work with the other keyboard.

I hope this helps!

Hiya Mitch, the enter key is normally on the right hand side of the keyboard, it there's not a button with enter on it, the one you need to look for is long arrow pointing to the left under the backspace button. The backspace button is an arrow pointing the left but smaller than the enter one, there's a little notch at the top of the long arrow hope i was of some help to you, kind regards

Just been given a ASUS Eee PC 900, with Linux. It says press the Enter Key, but I can not find a Enter Key as such. What key do I have to press.? Driving me crazy

Well, the Enter key is the one with the symbol of a left-pointing arrow with a short 'up bit' on the right-hand side of it. I think its to the right of the @ sign and on the same row. Incidentally the OTHER left-pointing arrow without the up bit on it is the backspace. Thats up above the Enter key also on the right-hand side of the keyboard. Regards, nicam49

Its possible they are faulty. Do you have an external keyboard you can use/borrow to see if they work?

Left and right arrow keys not functioning

check the arrow keys it it's also not functioning in the BIOS:
- restart the system and press F2 five times during the splash screen of the big blue DELL logo to go to the BIOS (System Setup). Then test the arrow keys.
- if arrow keys are also not functioning within the BIOS the the keyboard assembly needs to be replaced.
- if arrow keys are working within the BIOS then reinstall the chipset drivers and keyboard driver found in the Drivers CD/DVD that came with the computer.

My cursor keeps moving to the left making typing almost immposible sometimes it works fine ??!

Either the "left-arrow" or the "backspace" keys on your keyboard is getting stuck in the "down" position.

Take the computer to a qualified technician, and get the keyboard replaced.

Keyboard not working on acer travelmate 2350

it could be the sensors are damaged under the keys, but hopefully its just the driver. Right click on my computer icon and click properties and then the hardware tab, then device manager and look down the list for keyboard. Click the + sign and then right click on your keyboard under that and select uninstal. Restart the notebook and it will reinstall itself and hopfully work as it should do, if not then the keyboard itself is damaged in some way.
