You can either contact the manufacturer of you notebook and request a replacement keyboard, or you can use a USB keyboard instead.

I password my laptop (samsung R510) and one of the key I used is not working and I got an external USB keyboard by the keyborad is not working with, what will I do to used the external keyboard


your USB keyboard may not work because your laptop has not got to the point of initiating USB at the point of booting to password.
You could try using ascii codes to eneter the key
at the point where you need to enter the key that doesnt work press your numlock button this will turn some of your letters into numbers...they should be written on the keys in a different colur...the laptop Im looking at at the moment has 4 on U, 5 on I 6 on O, 1 on J etc...
hopefully these are not the broken key..
if you look here you will see the chart that says A=65 B=66 etc in order
http://www.asciitable.com/

find the letter you need eg v=118 in lower case
type in your password till you get to the v (if thats the broken letter)
press and hold [ALT] button with num lock on and on your newley formed number pad type in the number thet represent the letter in this case 118 when you release the [ALT] key it will insert that letter.
however this only works with an extended keypad (like a full size keyboard) where the numbers are seperate not your top row numbers which is why you need your numlock on.

if it does then work maybe you could go into your bios and turn USB legacy support on...which may then help your full size keyboard to work too.

My key board and mouse are typing wrong letters and mouse is selecting and opening every folders when clicking to open. laptop brand Fujitsu Seimens


Please check with external usb keyboard and mouse.
If external is working fine.. then there is probelm
with mouse clicking multiple times when you click one time.
For keyborad, you are not given any more information regarding what is the character displaying when which key is pressed. Try to check with numlock, and other functional keys.

if external also not working, check with local laptop repair center.

Please rate me if solution solved.

My laptop is only typing the numbers that appear on the letter keys. For example when I hit the letter J, it types a number 1. When I hit the letter k key, it types a 2, etc. How do I get it to go back...


Usually you have to hold the "Fn" key to get to these. Look for a "NumLock" key to turn this off. You may need to use the "Fn" key to select numlock.

Sometimes my wireless keyboard will type multiples of the same character when I've only hit the key once, and then other times it won't respond and will end up typing the first & last letters of a word...


Try plug it in to another USB port while the PC's switched on. It will force the computer to redect your mouse and keyboard and might fix the problem.

Another test would be on another PC or laptop. If it does the same thing then the keys are probably getting stuck down. Has it had anything spilt on it? Try a vacuum over the keys, you'll be suprised what gets caught under the keys (usally paperclips!!).

My keyboard wont type anything, the mouse works, but when i try to type it wont do anything, the buttons do work because when i open word to try to type if i click f the file drops down and when i click v...


Hi,
Somehow the left ALT key is stuck in a pressed position. Usually when you press left ALT and the letter underlined in a menu, it deploys that menu. In the File menu, the F is underlined and in the View menu it is the V that is underlined, hence the behavior.

Hope it helps.

The cursor jumping , when i typing my e-mail letter or use word etc... some times often some times selten ..etc? ptakach@cox.net


What type of computer do you have (laptop or desktop) and what model ? what versions of Window, what type of mouse ( usb, wireless, mouse with ball underside, optical mouse, etc )

And did this happened after a software upgrade or installation ?

What happens when you replace the mouse with another mouse, does it do the same thing ? If you haven't tried with another mouse
try doing that first as it may need to be replaced (depending the type of mouse) and that may solve your problem.

Keyboard want work


The keyboard is probably broken or the cable is loose (unlikely) from the motherboard. Does the keyboard work at all? at any point?

Try a external keyboard, usb for example and see if that works.
