My Dell inspiron 1545 my laptop keyboard is not working. Some keys work just find but most do not. I know the best thing to do is replace it,I will if I must, but is there anything else I could do?


First to make sure the controller is fine use an external USB keyboard. Open notepad and try all the keys.
now without closing notepad using the internal keyboard and try the keys that so far don't work. Still a problem, turn off laptop.
carefully lift the key cap and see is there is some dust hair or something that is preventing the key to react well.
Last if you can get a live DVD/CD from Linux and try to open a similar notepad program and try the keys. if all work your laptop windows could be infected or corrupted.

Is this the only problem with the keyboard not getting uppercase to work ?
While Acer laptops are built to be used on the go, they are not indestructible. An accidental drop or even normal wear and tear over an extended period of time can cause the laptop keys to become dislodged and fall out. Debris can also build up inside the keys and make them stick or stop working. Fixing the keys on your Acer laptop is a quick process that does not require taking the unit to a professional repair shop.

Power off the Acer laptop and flip the unit over. Slide the battery release lever over and lift the battery out of the laptop. Turn the laptop back over and open the lid. Look inside the open area on the keyboard where the key would normally go. Check to see if the plastic retaining clip is still inside the hole. Locate the plastic retaining clip if it fell off the keyboard along with the key. Use a pair of tweezers to set the clip back inside the hole. Line up the holes on the clip with the four raised nodules inside the keyboard hole. Set the key back onto the plastic clip. Push the key down until it clicks into place. Flip the laptop back over if there are keys that are not working properly. Use the Phillips-head screwdriver to remove the three screws on the left side of the case that hold the keyboard in place.

One letter is not working on my keyboard


One moment you are typing on your computer keyboard as usual, when suddenly a key sticks or does not produce a character on the screen. Perhaps you have a group of keys that suddenly stop working. Laptop and desktop keyboards alike can stop functioning due to a number of causes, most of which can be resolved by troubleshooting. Knowing how to fix some keyboard keys that do not work can save you time, and save you the cost of buying a new keyboard.

Update the device driver for your keyboard by going to the manufacturer's website of your keyboard, and then download and install the latest driver matching the brand and model number of your keyboard. Disconnect your keyboard from your computer and inspect the pins in the keyboard connector if you have a PS/2 connector. The PS/2 connector for your keyboard has six pins, which connect into a PS/2 port of your personal computer, to allow for communication to and from your keyboard. Straighten any bent pins you may find, by gently using a ballpoint pen. Y ou must replace your keyboard if you see broken pins. Try testing your keys using a different application, such as another word processing program. Keys like the function keys on your keyboard labeled F1 through F12 may not work in one application but will work fine in another. b> Clean Under Desktop Keys b> Disconnect your standard desktop keyboard, then press down on a key not working. Slip a car key or a flathead screwdriver underneath the key. Twist the screwdriver or car key until the keyboard key pops off. Use a damp cloth, moist cotton swabs or compressed air to remove dust, hair, and food crumbs under the key. Use only water or rubbing alcohol to moisten the cloth and cotton swabs other cleaners can damage the plastic of your computer. Position and press down on the key to snap it into place. Repeat this for all of the keys to clean underneath them, if necessary. b> Clean Under Laptop Keys b> Turn your laptop off, then use a flathead screwdriver or knife under a key corner, prying the key off gently. You will hear a snap as the key detaches. Remove the key retainer remaining on your laptop using your knife or screwdriver under the corner, then popping it off with a gentle twist. Remove the space bar by pulling it off after your insert the screwdriver or knife underneath the bar. Clean underneath your laptop keys using cotton swabs or a soft cloth dampened with water or alcohol. You can also use compressed air to remove dust, hair and other debris. Replace your laptop keys by placing the key retainer into position. If you cannot remember the position, copy another retainer's position by removing another key. Insert the keypad into the retainer, then position the key over the retainer while pressing down on the key. You should hear the key snap into place. Place your laptop's space bar over the space bar slots, then snap it into place.

My son poured water on my laptop. I let it air dry for about 3 days. This is not covered by the warranty. it powers up but the screen will not come on. what do I do?


First thing is to not try powering the laptop on after the water fell on it. Next, you should remove the battery off the laptop immediately. When this is done, you should fully disassemble the laptop & thoroughly inspect its inside. Look for any traces of water on the circuit boards & on other components. On circuit boards, water 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 water seeped into them. Dry them if needed.
When you are done, re-assemble back the laptop.
If the water fell on the keyboard & you found out that the keyboard is no longer working, then you will have to replace the keyboard.

Laptop keyboard is not responding &amp; as far as I know no liquids have been spilled on it. Is there a key that my son might have used to disable it? It is a HP laptop


probably your son might lock the keyboard what you have to do is that on the keyboard you will see where they wrote Fn key beside the ctrl key hold or press the key, then on top of the functional key i.e F1 to F12 among those keys you will see where they draw or shown something like key or padlock press the key in other to open your keyboard.

In case it doesn't work try the second option.

well, what i can say is that try to loose the laptop you will see where they wrote kb at the back of the laptop then loose those screw after loosing it, then bring out the keyboard with the flex then dust it out.
if it those not work again change the keyboard.

If you spill drinks on a keyboard, something is bound to break, and apparantly only the O key did... The only way to fix it is to get a new keyboard, I'm sorry. I hope this helps, Yannick.

Arrow key in my laptop keyboard was pull out help!


If you are unable to align the key above the place of removal and get it to work, very low chances that you will be able to fix it back in place (The pivot lever below the key is usually broken) - Better off paying for a replacement keyboard.
