SOURCE: Notebook Keyboard, some Keys doesn't Work. Replace the entire Keyboard??

Remove the keyboard and check if the cable is plugged into the laptop correctly which is usually not the case. Usually the keys may have been damaged and you may have to buy a keyboard replacement.

SOURCE: unable to key in password. keyboard malfunction

Hello, if your keyboard has malfunctioned the only way to type the password would be by using another computer in your home network to connect remotely to the computer to type in the password. If you need assistance with that let me know.

Thanks

SOURCE: hp laptop keyboard won't type "b n 1"or ''tab esc'' other keys ok..

Either your keyboard cable needs to be reseated or your keyboard is going bad and needs to be replaced. The keyboard cable is under the keyboard and it attaches to a slot on the motherboard. You'll have to partially disassemble the laptop to get to it. Hopefully you're not having this problem because you spilled a liquid on the keyboard.

Here's a fail safe alternative. Bring up google's website www.google.com and in the search box type "download.cnet.com" (without the quotes) and click the link to go to their site. When the site comes up look immediately to the left and you will see a gray area that says Find Software. Type in "free virtual keyboard" (without the quotes) and click the mirror to search. It will bring back a page and the Free Virtual Keyboard is listed first. Look to the right of it and click the Download Now button. Download and install it. Once it is install you can look in Start/Programs and right click on it and select Pin to Start Menu then right click again and select Desktop (Create Shortcut). It's a neat keyboard to have just in case your real keyboard goes bonkers. You simply click on the letter with your mouse pointer that you want. It has all the functionality of a physical keyboard. You can open a web page, place your mouse in the address line then bring up the virtual keyboard by clicking on it from your desktop or start menu and it will sit on top of whatever you were trying to do. You can move it to see the typing area as you click on a letter. It works the same way if you opened a word document. In your case anytime you need the space bar, just click on it.

Keyboard keys malfunctioning


Need to take the laptop apart and clean or replace the keyboard

Laptop keyboard keys


To determine if the keyboard or the keyboard controller is faulty, plug an USB keyboard into the USB port on your laptop. If all the keys are OK on the USB keyboard then the laptop's keyboard is faulty and needs to be replaced. If the USB keyboard also malfunctions then the keyboard controller chip on the motherboard is faulty, then the motherboard needs to be replaced, but this may not be a cost effective solution.

When I hit any key, it throws in a bunch of asterisks


Could be either a short in the Keyboard or it is not USB adapter compatible, some mice are like this. Plug it into a computer with PS2 port and see if it still malfunctions, if it does then the keyboard has a short, if not, it is incompatible with a USB adapter. Keyboards send two codes whenever a key is pressed, one for the key itself and one to let the computer know it the Shift/Ctrl/Alt keys are being pressed.

Page up button not working


Unfortunately it sounds like you're keyboard is malfunctioning and the only permanent fix is to replace the keyboard. In the mean time, since you are unable to do so, I would suggest using the touch pad to manipulate the scroll bar for the faster scrolling. For more control you could use a USB mouse with the laptop which would give you a scroll wheel. (I personally use a Wireless Mouse with my laptop because I find touch pads don't react they way I would like my mouse to use)

My keyboard automaticaLLy brings up shortcuts eg when i press a it Locks the mouse


Well it's possible your keyboard itself has a hardware malfunction (meaning the keyboard itself could be bad)

However, if it's not broken, one thing you can check in Windows (using your mouse only) is to go into the control panel

In Windows XP find the "Regional Settings" applet, or Vista/Windows 7 find the "Region and Language" applet (NOTE, you will NOT find these settings in the "Keyboard" applet)

In there you can change the settings of your keyboard to different layout and different languages....it's very possible that you can hit an accidental keyboard combination that could have changed these settings and thus make your keyboard seem like it's acting funny.

One of the most common things I have seen with this...is if you tap the SHIFT key 5 times in a row it will turn "Sticky Keys" on and off....there are a few settings in the Regional applet that may be able to give you some answers or help you out. Good Luck!

Can i ask something about my keyboard..i bought asus f8 series..a year ago..this month i experience a malfunction on my keyboard..my letter h, space arrow key and z,x,c,v,b,n, are not working but other...


To determine if the keyboard is faulty ot the keyboard controller chip on the motherboard is faulty, connect an USB keyboard to your laptop. If this USB keyboard functions correctly then the laptop keyboard is faulty and needs to be replaced.
If this keyboard also malfunctions the the fault is on the laptop's motherboard.
You may be able to get it repaired under warranty.

Laptop computer has 'keyboard error' unable to use mouse


There are factors we need to consider for us to be able to come up with an answer.

These are the things i can say for now.

1. Laptop keyboards are very delicate unlike desktops, so too much press in a key can cause this problem.
2. Is your laptop keyboard still works after showing a :KEYBOARD ERROR"? If yes, the system is just confuse, maybe the driver of your keyboard malfunctions every time you open your computer.
3. If it is nt working after the error message, the driver or even the keyboards itself malfunctioned.
4. Have a technician look inside your laptop (experienced laptop technician) and ask them to check the wiring between the system board and your keyboard. I guess there's just a key stuck in press mode that's causing the error.

This is all for now, i cannot give an exact answer since i don't have your laptop to check personally.

If you have anymore questions regarding this problem, feel free to update this post.
