Its not a virus issue, Depending on how long and how hard you have been using your laptop keyboard, the hardware can become damaged over time. Best suggestion is to have it checked out by a local BestBuy Geek Squad Technician, to check to make sure that it is a hardware issue. Otherwise, they now have the roll out laptop keyboards for easy use and travel, and very hard to break.

Power Button doesn't work


I have a Dell Studio laptop and sometimes some buttons become not responsive, including the power button. As for power button, I noticed that if you hold it for a few seconds, the laptop will turn on (at least in my case). The fix that works for me is as follows:

1. Turn the laptop off;
2. Disconnect the charger and take out the battery;
3. Wait for a few seconds;
4. Open the laptop lid (as you probably closed it while taking out the battery), push the power button and hold it for a few seconds. Nothing will happen as the laptop won't have any power, but it clears some sort of electrostatic load or whatever it's called;
5. Put the battery back in and turn on the laptop.

I used this for a few times, so perhaps it'll help in your case as well.

My laptop keboard is acting up sometime the letters dont want to type.sometime its a letter and sometime its another letter and then sometime it works perfectly


You may have unwanted debris under the keys. Turn the keyboard upside down and brush gently between the keys. If the problem then affects another key you know you are on the right track - the debris is moving around.

Hi my keyboard is locked, cannot type in anything


have you tried hitting the "numlock" key? Sometimes it is accidentally hit and that will cause your keyboard to fail to respond to average typing.
In addition there might be a key lock button on your laptop.

My keyboard is slow when I use it in Hotmail


That is not a problem with the keyboard.( Cheers :P) That is the problem with your network connectivity. It is not able to load complete hotmail features properly. So it is not responding properly to the keyboard responses.

The "n" letter sometimes it responds and some not


The key may be broken or there may be something stuck under it, possibly something spilled on it? The keyboard should come off, have a geeky friend look for the screw that keep it in place.

Is there any reason why a single letter key would stop working on a computer purchased new for Christmas and used for less than a week? There is nothing beneath the key, it's been taken off and put back on...


maybe the ribbon cable that connects the keyboard to the system board is not fully inserted. I have had this problem in the past and its only solveed by completely dismantling the laptop and even then its not 100% certain thats what thet problem is

If you used it for less than a week its obviously still under warranty , just backup all the important data and get it exchanged

Keyboard


Can you please clarify this
  1. Do you keys not respond at all
  2. Do you get numbers when you want letters or otherwise letters to numbers
  3. Or does it respond only in one mode numbers only or letters only
My suggestions
  1. If its situation 1 then try reastarting your machine, and unblocking the num lock and vice versa
  2. If its situation 2 just try unblocking num and blocking back by turning on or off the num lock, its just num lock or FN + Num lock in some PC
  3. If its situation 3 just restart your computer.

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.
