Question about ASUS K40IN Notebook

1 Answer

Suddenly keys "ESC", up, DOWN and "p" stopped working. No water was spoiled, nothing was done. At the evening they worked, in the morning not. I might have accidentially pressed some keys like Window sign, or Fh plus smth (in darkness, did not see what) but could that stop some buttons from work ...?I do not know what to do, restart does not help

It might be a loose keyboard connection. Try dusting debris out from the keys. Next, try re-seating the keyboard cable/ribbon to the system board.

SOURCE: problem in opening the wireless connection and the Cd installation cannot open also

Sounds like you have removed the hotkey functions.

You will need to go on here,

Find your model in the A3000 series and download both of the "Utilities" in the "Other" section and install them. Should be ok after this is done.

SOURCE: keyboard does not work properly

If your notebook gets very hot in daily use, then it affects your keyboard's rubber spacer.
try to reinstall your windows and check it. sometimes a software error cause the same problem by being make the kernal busy and not unresponsive. If you don't want to reinstall just use a bootable linux cd and check your keyboard function.
Hope it'll help you anyway

SOURCE: internet wont connect

Are you using Vista, XP, Linux?

  1. Check the Device Manager
  2. Click Start
  3. Right click My Computer
  4. Select Manage
  5. Click Device Manager
If you see anything with a yellow question mark then you may need to update the driver for it.

If there is nothing missing a driver then we'll move on.

If you're running Vista I have seen 4-5 cases personally where this occurred for no reason and I could not get it to connect to ANY network.

  1. Click on the wireless icon in the system tray
  2. If it say that you are connected but with limited access
  3. or local access only
  4. or no internet
This is the same problem I had people bring in on their laptops, the only thing that I could do was to reinstall Windows, I tried updating drivers but nothing worked.

But first you should try to update the driver, but you'll probably have to reinstall Windows.

My windows key is not working plz help solving it

Try using the "CTRL" key as a modifier (Holding it down) and then press the "ESC" key one time. This should get you by for now. As for the not working Windows key. You could have a number of mechanical failures there. All depends on how the board is put together. You will likely need a new board, but if you find that the "CTRL" + "ESC" key combo doesn't work either, then this could even turn out to be a software issue. You might want to verify that all other keys work on the keyboard. You might find a dead region.
Good luck!

I have set up my compaq computer , it was working fine, then I shut it down. Now when I start it up it goes into the compaq screen asking for press esc or f11 or f10 etc for rebooting etc. What have I...

The Start up screen for Compaq series computers is normal, that screen takes you into your BIOS mode. when the screen appears press F1, at the bottom of the screen it will say press F5 or one of those keys to install your Default Settings, Click Yes and Exit. That should do it. Good Luck.
