    There are several things that you can try and this will help determine what the problem is. The first thing is to try another keyboard that connecfts to USB ports. If it works then we can assume that the problem is the onboard keyboard. If nothing was spilled on it and the computer was not dropped then the issue is most likely a genuine keyboard failure. If something was spilled on it, it might be worse then just a keyboard, the liquid might have done more damage inside the computer. Replacement keyboards are not that expensive or hard to replace.

SOURCE: keyboard doesnt function properly

It is possible that the keyboard matrix is shorted so when you use the external kbd it still gets the same errors. See if you can disable the main kbd in bios and if that solves the problem. You could also try removing the main kbd and see what that does. Otherwise you probably have a motherboard problem. The touchpads are usually pretty tough to liquids - check the cable on that.

SOURCE: can't refit space bar & alt Gr keys to Acer Extensa 4620

Removing the keys can sometimes damage the very small retaining clips then it won't clip back in place.
You can get replacement keyboards on the Internet, I've bought keyboards for approx. US$20 from the USA. The keyboard is easy to remove and replace, no need to get a techo to do it.

SOURCE: spilled water on keyboard. a few keys don't work

If this problem occurred recently you might still be able to save the keyboard. However, it is a painstaking method of popping out each of the keys that are not working and cleaning them off (preferably with some contact cleaner) and making sure that there is no corrosion trying to form due to the moisture. Be careful when prying up some keys as some keyboards (especially laptop keyboards) are hard to put back if you don't have the right tools or the know how. I suggest looking up keyboard removal techniques based on the brand of your keyboard/laptop.
Good luck...

yes it is probably dead for some reason ..the probabil cause it is a contact for a area..and this is a used but a good price one ...that works ..
here are another if that one seams not on your taste ...among them are even new ones..

to actually change it ..you have to remove the front part that covers the hinges and holds the buttons ..(see that it have spots to insert something on the F1 and f11 keys ) than remove the keyboard itself by pushing it a little toward the lcd..and up..it is snapped in place and slides in a little...Than it has just a ribbon that removes by pulling the safety plastic ends a few mm out ...

When water spills into a notebook, you should fully disassemble the notebook & thoroughly inspect its inside. Look for any traces of liquid on the circuit boards & on other components. On circuit boards, liquid damage appears in the form of whitish traces. These needs to be wiped off. This can be done using a tooth brush moistened with few drops of hand sanitizer liquid.
Check all internal connectors & make sure that no liquid seeped into them. Dry them if needed.
When you are done, re-assemble back the notebook.
If the liquid fell on the keyboard & you found out that the keyboard is no longer working, then you might have to replace the keyboard.

My 4th row of keypad is not working except g,h,',caps


Try removing Keyboard connector an reseating it. (4420s - Some scews under battery and possibly 1 near rear of each hinge - remove. Flip unit over and slide Speaker grill panel toward front of unit. There should then be a few screws that hold the keyboard at the top edge 2 or 3. Remove and you should see the connector. )
If this doesn't work you have faulty keyboard.

Keyboard problem & it doesn't work prefect


If the keyboard has a round purple connector, power down the computer then unplug and then plug in the keyboard. Power on the computer. If it works your done if it doesn't replace the keyboard. If this is a USB keyboard, with the computer on, unplug and plug in the keyboard if it works great, if it still isn't working replace the keyboard. NOTE if this is a multi functional keyboard (special keys at the top) make sure you install the driver and any software associated with the keyboard.

Hi, i have a toshiba x205-s9800. my two year old seems to have accidently pressed some keys and disabled the keyboard...please help...


You could have deleted the keyboard in the device manager. If so, rebooting your computer and it will find it.
Are all the keys not working or just some? Take a look at this hint and see if it fits.

Hello. some keys like "6,y.u.w


if it is a laptop keyboard that is not working but you want to use an external keyboard just buy a usb one. Typically if you are running an windows xp or newer, it will just recognized the keyboard and you will be fine.
PS2 is that round plug with 6 pins you would find on older computers.

If you did not want to use an external keyboard and want to try to fix the the internal laptop's keyboard, there are a few things you could try:
1'st, shoot the keys with air duster to see if you can dislodge anything stuck under them.
2'nd, you can pop off the keys and press directly on the contact to see if the button works.
3'd, if that doesn't work you can take off the keyboard and ther will be a part number on the bottom of it. type that into google and you can find a place that sells replacement keyboards.
I did this on a Toshiba satellite and it worked fine, just be sure not to break the keyboard ribbon connector on the motherboard when you remove it.
