Just show a hot air blower on your keyboard from a safe distance. It would be fine.

HP ProBook 1. Everytime i try to type in a box the screen closes to the desktop 2 my font size always changes; i have to continually change it back to 100, how do i get it to stay.

Seems the on board keyboard had problems ( sticky ) Have you try using Usb keyboard? I guess the 'Sticky key' is Ctrl or Alt key. you can try pressing Shift key 5 times repetedly ( to disable sticky key )
Try remap keyboard > ( to disable sticky key with application )

Shift key not working

You have 2 Shift keys on the keyboard. If the other shift key is working then the shift key that is not working is defective. You should consider replacing the keyboard on your laptop. There is no setting on Windows that can disable the shift key.

**Note : If both Shift keys are not working, Try to check if sticky keys feature on windows is on. Sticky keys should be disabled. To disable sticky keys, Click on start and Go into control panel > Accessibility Options, and under keyboard there is sticky keys. Remove the tick and click apply and OK.


**If "Use Sticky Keys" is unchecked, that means sticky keys is disabled.

My shift, backspace, and enter keys stoped working...12345 etc...numbers work, but when i press shift and 1 nothing happens. to get capital letters at all i have to use the cap lock key..number pad works,...

the classic post, is it hardware or software.? endless now and future.

the HP service tag , what does it tell you, it is, HP will ask you the same question or get no help there.
  • BAD KEYBOARD , try another yet?
  • Corrupted OS. (virus or bunged drivers)
if you boot to any test disk or stick does it fail still.?
I have a linux CD and Linux boot USB stick.
I insert it and boot to it, its super simple to do on all PCs made.
if Linux like this KBD then the KBD is not bad, for a fact.
that takes, 5min or less work. to learn this fact.
did you know a USB keyboard works on laptops too? try it.

this link solves , corrupted OS. (the easy way of 3 possible)

The worst case is laptops(notebooks)

here is LT running perfectly with no original keyboard
take any USB keyboard and plug it in, and test any LT made.
and any Desktop made with USB ports,
all LT have USB, (not in 1984 HPs first)

now the easy test

I have a live linux and a live windows PE disk and mem stick in my service kit. (ask how to make one its free, and easy after buy blank CD or stick)
i boot to that usb stick and say linux loads, in seconds... btw.
wow my keyboard works now , so my HDD installed OS is infected
or corrupted ,the cure restore the software, using HP methods.
one other OS related cure.
if some kids messed up the keyboard driver seen in device manager., (super hard to do) then get it at hP .com and reload it.
or right click the keyboard line in DM. and click update. driver.

DM and keyboard line present and me clicking update driver there.

I have a hp laptop model no dv 2046 tu...the problem i m facing is that my keyboard's ctrl key is stuck...whenever i press any key....a combination of that key wid ctrl is is taken...example....if i press...

This solution is for Windows XP.
If you see no physical sticking, then you may have "Sticky keys" on.
To look to see what your "Sticky Keys" Settings is at do the following:

In "Control Panel" double click "Accessibility Options"
A new window will pop up. The first tab is "Keyboard".
The first box at the top is "Sticky Keys" make sure that is unchecked.

"Sticky Keys" can be automatically turned on if you hold down certain keys for a predetermined length of time. Usually a box will pop up asking if you want to turn it on.

Thank you.
Please rate me.

My laptop

I'll start by telling you that most of the time keyboards don't recover from a spill. With that said, clean it by using a 50/50 rubbing alcohol in a spray bottle. Remove the keyboard from the machine, and spray the alcohol into the keyboard generously. Shake out the excess or blow it out with air, then use paper towels to daub up the rest. Repeat this process two or three times, then let the keyboard dry for a good 24 hours. While you have the keyboard off check for any juice or sticky areas in the machine, and clean them with the alcohol and Q-tips. Let this dry well also. After drying put the keyboard back on and try it. If you notice any sticky keys after using it for a while, then take the sticky keys off and clean them individually with the alcohol and Q-tips.

Keyboard repair

You should call Acer tech support and enquire about a keyboard. I am sure that they will tell you to take the computer to their rep for your area. Normaly they change the keyboard when there is a fault. If the circuit board under the keys is defective or if one of the IC's on the board failed, this would not be servicable at all. The keyboards on these computers were not really designed to be able to be serviced.
