You're in luck. Changing the keyboard is just about the easiest thing to do on a laptop. Google or go to amazon (or wherever you prefer) to find the least expensive replacement part. Then go to the service manual online for your laptop and it will show you how to remove and replace it. Don't let it freak you out. It's a fine place to start. Of course, just in case there's a loose connection inside, you may want to try taking it out now and reseating it. Your external keyboard works so it's not like you'll not be able to use it! Let me know if you have any questions.

Connect an external USB keyboard to your laptop. If it works ok, your problem is the keyboard nd you should install a new keyboard; if fails too, it's a software issue

Keyboard Not Working


Keyboard could need replacing. Try connecting a USB external keyboard and see if it works. If it works okay, you need to have the laptop keyboard connections checked. Replace the keyboard if connections appear to be okay.

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.

This problem is common in all laptops that have a pointing stick (eraser tip like) in the keyboard between G H and B buttons. It's a registry problem that cannot be fixed easily. The most economic and time effective way t solve it is to format your hard disk and reinstall your operating system.
Make sure to update your operating system before downloading any other programs or application and even before uploading your backed up files.
If this does not work for you, the problem will definitaly be a hardware issue caused by the pointing stick. Then the keyboard or the motherboard of your laptop should be replaced (I hpe your laptop is still on waranty....)

Compaq Presario laptop C300 - issues (orange light)


Sometimes when a PC gets stuck in hibernation mode, the only way to reset it is to remove the CMOS battery for 10 minutes and replacing it. It resembles a large watch battery and is usually located near the center of the motherboard.

Keyboard on lap top not working


Hello there,

What I would assume in your case is that the jack is not sensing that the keyboard(external) has been unplugged. You can check if the device is working properly in Hardware manager. Assuming you are using XP right-click on My computer->click properties-> hardware manager and check under keyboards. If there's any exclamatory mark next to it then it seems there's some kind of problem with it. Right-click on the device and click on uninstall. Since most of these workstation keyboards are Microsoft PS/2, windows should automatically find and install drivers for it. If it stil doesn't work then its likely to be a hardware failure. Contact HP immediately. Let me know if you need more help.
