Hello. Has the keyboard been dropped/banged around recently? Do you have children or pets that could have spilled liquid, food, who-knows-what in the keyboard? Also, if you press one of the non-functional keys(eg.: A) do the keys above/below it press down as well?

Keyboard typing wrong letters


Your keyboard is not "typing wrong letters", you have a stuck key. The key is shorting out and is stuck on the letter W. Usually caused by dirt/dust/spills on the keyboard jamming the key so it can't release. Things to try in order of difficulty:
>Vacuum cleaner with brush attachment, vac the keys.
>Paper towel moistened lightly rubbed on the 4 sides of the W key; use a knife blade to gently work down into the edges.
>Soft toothbrush, lightly dampened with water, work the bristles all
all around the edges of the W key. After that do step 2 with a dry
dry paper towel.
>Take the keyboard apart; usually several tiny screws on the rear/sides. CAREFULLY remove the top. You may have to turn the board over, lie on its face to do this. Do not knock the letters out of order or you will have a headache placing them back in proper order! Clear whatever it blocking the W and replace the cover.
If none of the above works the keyboard has failed, needs to be replaced.

Which is an function key in keyboard


(FuNction key) A keyboard key that works like a shift key to activate a second function on a dual-purpose key. Commonly found on laptop keyboards, the Fn key is often used to control hardware functions such as screen brightness and speaker volume. The Fn key may also be found on extra small keyboards for desktop computers, typically for Page Up and Page Down, which are combined with Up Arrow and Down Arrow. See function key.

Hi, I have an Acer 5920 laptop and the right arrow key has come off. I have the key, and the 2 bits of plastic that act as a retaining clip how do the clips fit? I can see that one clips into the key at...


Do not use glue! These keyboard caps just press fit onto the keyboard. Line it up and push straight down. The arrow facing in the right direction should give you the right alignment. If the key does not stay on, you must replace the keyboard as it would be missing the attachment point that would keep it on the base. Without seeing it in person, it is hard to say. I am not sure I understand what you mean by the key is locked to the keyboard?

How to make logitech keyboard & mouse work??


Hi there: I was also facing the same problem. But when you see on back of the keyboard the instructions are there. or follow these steps.
1. insert new batteries both in keyboard and mouse. 2. decide what device you want to connect 1st (Lets connect Keyboard first) 3. Pres and Hold the connect button for both key board and receiver for about 5 secs. 4. don't press any key on key board till 10 secs (During this time it trying to connect with receiver) 5. Check the key board connectivity if it works then take it away or put it behind some barrier so that when you are connecting the mouse it don't interrupt. 6. now for the mouse do the same process as you have connected the keyboard.(step 3 & 4) 7. now check both key board and mouse they will work fine. Thanks

Keyboard not responding or typing random letters


You have stuck keys from when you removed to clean. Remove the stuck keys and see if it works OK when you press the rubber cap instead of key
The back space one may have a link under it if it is a wide one ensure it is fitted correctly
