When a keyboard stops working, has odd key letters, stuck keys and non-functioning keys for no reason at all, the laptop may have an easy fix solution. However, if liquid spilled on the laptop or the laptop was dropped and as, a consequence, the keyboard doesn't work, or the keyboard device has simply failed, fixing the problem may require a more involved laptop keyboard replacement.

Click start control panel keyboard hardware make sure you have the right keyboard selected or you might have uninstall the keyboard then restart your computer then reinstall it and its drivers Click start control panel administrative tools computer management device manager scroll to keyboard you might see a yellow question /exclamation mark ? ! or a red X right click update driver if your computer came with a motherboard disk the drivers could be on it. If its still not working Tap the "Alt" and "Shift" keys simultaneously if you are pressing one keyboard key and getting a different symbol or letter. This will reset the keyboard defaults on some laptops. Press the "Ctrl" key and tap the "Shift" key simultaneously if the procedure in Step 1 did not work. Press the "Fn" and one of the "F" keys to disable the "Num Lock." Different laptops use different "F" keys to disable the "Num Lock." Toggle each "F" key and press the "Fn" key at the same time to find the right key combination. Check your laptop manual to find the right key combination. Press the "Fn" key and the blue "NumLock" key simultaneously if the keyboard is typing numbers instead of letters or wrong letter keys and the above steps did not solve the problem. b> Keyboard Maintenance b> Blow compressed air in the cracks and crevices of the laptop keyboard. Sometimes dust and debris can cause keys to lock, making such keys non-functional. Disconnect the laptop from the power outlet and remove the battery. Make the tip of a cotton swab as thin as possible by rolling it between your finger tips. Dip the thinned cotton swab in rubbing alcohol and clean the crevices of the keyboard with the cotton swab. Continue cleaning between each key of the keyboard with the alcohol-dipped cotton swab. Use a new cotton swab whenever necessary. Slightly tip up one side of the laptop so dust will move from under the keys to the crevices so you can clean. Blow compressed air into the keyboard again as you did in Step 1 of Section 2. Reconnect the computer to the power and check to see if the issue is resolved. Insert the flat edge of a flat-blade precision screwdriver under a keyboard key and gently pry it up and off. Remember where the keys go, so you can easily replace them. Remove three keys at a time and clean with a cotton swab dipped in alcohol. Replace the keys and remove the next three. Do this until the entire keyboard has been cleaned. Disconnect the laptop from the power outlet and remove the battery again. Turn the computer so the rear is facing you. Remove the screws that hold the plastic hinges in place. Insert a small flat-blade precision screwdriver in the plastic hinge seam and pry the hinges up. Turn the computer back face forward and open the screen as far back as it will go. Continue lifting the plastic hinge and power plate until it comes off. Remove the screws you see holding the keyboard with a precision Phillips screwdriver. Blow compressed air under the keyboard. Lift the cable connector levers slightly and remove the data cable. Clean the cable pins with an alcohol-dipped cotton swab. Replace everything, power on the computer and try the keyboard again to see if the issue is resolved. b> Keyboard Replacement b> Connect an external keyboard to the USB port on the laptop and verify its working condition. Disconnect the external keyboard and verify that the keys on the laptop are still inoperable. Disconnect the laptop from the power outlet and remove the battery. Remove the laptop keyboard as you did in Step 3 of Section 2 by removing the plastic hinge and power button plate, the keyboard screws and disconnecting the data cable from the motherboard connector. Replace the keyboard with a new laptop keyboard for your laptop make and model.

    I appreciate the help but don't like being labeled dumb. The keyboard is the built in one that came with it. I fixed this problem before by uninstalling aface scan feature. I have tried rebooting several times anf all fn keys suggestions I have found. The keyboard willwork to let me log into Windows but not after that .

Team promark keyboard won't work


If it has a USB plug, try attaching it through a different port hub, i.e. not the usb port right next to the one that didn't work. If that doesn't work, test the usb port with something else first. If the USB port is not the problem, you may need to download a driver for the keyboard.

Need a keybored


If you have a desktop computer system you can find keyboards at nearly every retail store. Any keyboard will work on any computer. (Well, this may not be 100% true. If your computer only has USB ports and no PS/2 style connectors - true for a few systems - you'll need a USB keyboard. Otherwise you can plug in anything.) There's no need to stay with the exact same keyboard that was supplied with your system, unless it had special-function keys like volume control or Web access. Even then you can buy keyboards with special keys, and they will come with the software you'll need to make them work.

With laptops it's a little more difficult since the keyboard needs to be an exact replacement, otherwise it won't fit the case and the connection to the motherboard won't be right. But there are many sources now, and for popular brands a lot of low-cost generic replacements are available. You don't always need to buy the original keyboard from the manufacturer. I find eBay to be a good place to look for keyboards (and other laptop components as well). I've found my last few keyboards, batteries and some display hinges from eBay sellers at good prices.

You haven't said what make and model computer you have so I can't be any more detailed. I hope you find this general information useful and that you get a new keyboard quickly. Thanks for using FIxya!

Hi vay_m0u8 ,

This is an indication that your keyboard is going to be out of order in some time.

All you need to do is to get the keyboard replaced if it's under warranty or follow the procedure below to check if it works.

  1. Open your keyboard , (Only if it's not under warranty) and then with a soft cloth clean the circuit present inside , you can use liquid like petrol for good cleaning.
  2. Once you have cleaned it , close your keyboard and then , check if it works fine.
  3. If the problem persists , either get a new keyboard , or get a replacement , if the keyboard is still under warranty.
Hope this helps ..:)
