How to replace the keybord on an advent 9517 laptop


Advent laptops are manufactured by DSG International, which owns the names to other name-brand computers such as Acer and Hewlett-Packard.
The Advent laptop keyboard has integrated mouse touch-pad functions that allow you to move the mouse around the screen with your fingers.
Function keys at the top of the board contain alternate ways to exit and enter software applications.

Function Keys
The Advent laptop keyboards function keys are "hot keys" that act as shortcuts to applications and functions on the computer. The function keys sometimes don't work and won't carry out the function assigned to the key. This problem is considered a hardware malfunction, and the solution is to replace the keyboard or use a universal serial bus (USB) keyboard for the laptop. b> Malfunctioning Keys b> Advent keyboards are made of thin plastic. Striking the keys too hard will cause the keys to break or stick awkwardly in the housing unit that supports the keyboard. When these keys get stuck in the housing unit, a pin tool can easily set the keys back on track. If there are too many keys that get stuck or broken, you can purchase a replacement Advent keyboard and have it installed. b> Mouse Problems b> The mouse is located at the bottom of the Advent keyboard but is connected to the keyboard data strip that sends information through the keyboard unit to move the mouse on the screen. If the mouse malfunctions, check the connector under the keyboard to see if it is loose. A loose connector can cause the mouse or other keys not to function on the laptop. b> Electrical Shortage b> An electrical shortage can cause an Advent keyboard not to work properly. A shortage is when the main board of the laptop is not getting the voltage needed to efficiently operate the computer. When this happens, certain devices underperform or become inoperable. Check to see if your power supply is extremely hot or if your system heats up around the keyboard. If so, replace the electrical adapter. b> Wire Damage From Keystrokes b> The wire that is responsible for the liquid crystal display (LCD) on the Advent laptop extends from under the middle of the keyboard to the LCD display unit. This wire is unprotected and can be damaged from striking the keys over the wire. When this happens, the display will not show the correct colors or the screen will go black. To eliminate this problem, purchase a keyboard cover that fits the keys to relieve the pressure between the keyboard and video cable. b> Keyboard Drivers b> Problems have been reported with upgrades from Windows Vista to Windows 7. Windows 7 will not recognize the system drivers that operate the Advent keyboard. To get the keyboard to work, you must load the old drivers in Windows 7 Safe mode, which is used anytime there is a hardware or software discrepancy. Advent keyboard drivers can be loaded from the original restore CD, which is included with the system at the time of purchase.

According to Lenovo support, error 0211 is a keyboard error - keyboard not working. Ebay sell replacement keyboards for £20 - £30 for your x41 which should hopefully fix this error after fitting.

My Acer Aspire 7720G doesn't have a 'scrn prnt' key. It was bought in France and has a French keyboard, but I can see no key that could correspond. How can I take a screenshot?


I'm not sure of which French keyboard you have, The Azerty is from Belgium and is used by the French, there is another that French Canadians use, it is a modified Qwerty. The Azerty board has the key "Syst" on it and this key is sometimes used as a screen print when used with a cimbination key strike. I am unsure if the combination uses the shift key, the Fn key or the Alt Gr key. If your keyboard has a menu key, this also may bring up a keystroke guide to use.

My laptop thinks the control button is held down and I am not able to type properly. all buttons respond like they would if the ctrl button was held down.


u r keyboard is likely to b defective or ur ram..
lightly strike/tap the keypad using ur hand..

if u r a professional, open the keyboard..deep clean all the carbon contacts beneath the keys using Iso-Propyl alcohol..put/stick 'Carbon-Dots' (available in cheap level spare market) as n where necessary..
hope it'll work..

better to seek professional supervision esp of ur system admin/vendor....

Sometimes the keys that have white and blue writing on them will only respond blue. How do i get them to respond as white instead of blue keys?


You have a FNC key on your keyboard. Since it is a laptop, your keyboard can not have all the keys that a normal keyboard has. This is handled by making some keys perform two or more functions. Thus, the alternate key use if the blue keys (function key is depressed). You will pribably find that there is a light labeled as FNC where you see your caps lock, num lock etc.. it sounds to me that you have your keyboard in alternate function mode so that the keys are performing the alternate functions (probably the numeric keys if it is a normal configuration..).
Thanks!

Toshiba Laptop Keyboard Not Working


pls dont use your notebook yet, since there are still moisture in it. try to use a hair blower but place the hair blower at least 2 feet away. you dont want to melt the plastic in your notebook. blower it for 20minutes then try to turn on your computer. if it still does not work. I suggest to bring it to the service center of your notebook.

Keyboard's keys sometimes don't respond


It is not a driver it is a keyboard that is having troubles itself unfortunately, you can try to find new one on eBay since that ones printed wires sort of are broken. What happens is that your keyboard pops out a little and disconnects some letters so you need to press in the middle to get it back to work, the same thing was happening to previous one.

Some of my keys don't work from time to time


This is either the keyboard or keyboard controller. The only way to tell is to replace keyboard. (Usally found on e-bay for about 40.00) then if not the keyboard controller on Motherboard (expensive fix) so, if it is the controller you may want to try an external keyboard at least to keep using the unit at a resonable cost.
