Machine keeps napping I guess is a good way to say it

My computer keeps napping and keyboard turns completly off. It is a emachines keyboard. I have never noticed before but in the upper right corner where it says emachines there are three smybols. The first one is Number Lock and when you turn it on there is a light that comes on. The second symbol is Caps On when you have it on it also has a light that comes on. The third symbol is what? Somehow I accidentally turned the light on and have been trying to turn off but my computer just goes to sleep and so does the keyboard. Can you help please? Janet

Turn the computer off and unplug it. If it is a laptop also remove the battery. Let the computer sit for at least two minutes then reinstalll the battery, plug it in, and turn it back on. Your problem should be fixed. good luck.

How do i unlock a keyboard E machine 9908

Unlock a keyboard? Do you mean your e machine is locked? If the keyboard is not working get a generic ps2 keyboard at a local goodwill for a few bucks. First though check the pins on that round connector and make sure they are not bent.
I have never heard of a keyboard for emachine computers ever, ever having a lock. For what it is worth I have been fixing computers since 1993. Machines is a low cost consumer box without much in the way of bells and whistles but a lot of bloatware.

After connecting Bluetooth and turning on keyboard the blue light keeps flashing and the keyboard does not work

What kind of keyboard is it? Brand or model? Usually these are somewhere on the bottom of the keyboard or right on the front.

Sometimes it helps to completely power off the keyboard and try again, this means removing the battery from the keyboard and try to pair it with your computer.

If you aren't sure how to pair your keyboard with your computer that's where knowing what type of keyboard you have comes into play. Usually there is a button on the bottom to press for it to let your computer know it's available. Sometimes you have to do something else like press a certain combination of buttons.

The keyboard completely stopped working. Unable to type at all...any suggestions? I have disconnected and reconnected the keyboard and restarted the computer.

Turn off the computer, disconnect and reconnect the keyboard, restart your computer. If that does not work, try a different keyboard. If that still does not work than try a usb keyboard instead of a ps/2 keyboard or vice-vers. Good luck and let me know how it goes.

My Emachines calc. Hot key backward and forward hot keys do not work

A; key is stuck (as in something sticky or some object needs removed)'-- Use isopropyl alcohol, a Toothbrush and some pipe cleaners... apply it liberally with the pc OFF - wait for it to dry - then try... (avoid using any cleaning material that will leave residue or pieces of itself - no WD40 & no Qtips! They may work good on SOME computer components - but not for a keyboard)

B: your ribbon cable could be damaged or not properly inserted. Take out the keyboard - reinstall carefully - sometimes these ribbon cables can be loose, in the wrong position, not properly inserted - or damaged.

C: Maybe part of the key is broken (5.00 on ebay for one key or 25.00 for a whole new keyboard)

Looking for a spare "y" key

Ok this is a LAPTOP. What you can do is to purchase the original keyboard from E-machines themselves or google for the emachine 525 keyboard part. As long as you know how to open your notebook and properly install the keyboard, you should have no problems.

And no one sells just the key, you have to buy the whole board to replace one key.

Hope this helps
