Question about Acer Aspire Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Why did a number of keys on my acer 5250-0816 laptop quit working?

I cannot get a response from 8 keys that I know of on my laptop. I took 2 of the keys off and blew some dust out but there is still nothing when I press them. The keys are; i j k ; \ , m and the backspace key. What might the problem be? Thank you.

I would worry the keyboard has gone out. I don't foresee that being a driver issue.

SOURCE: Keyboard keys are including numbers with it

Hello Rich,
This happens when the nubmers which are on the alphabet keys are enabled. You can stop this by holding Fn key on the notebook then press Scroll lock once. This will disable these number.

SOURCE: Lifebook 4010 keyboard some keys won't work

You have to pry either pull on some levers at the top or bottom, or you have to use a thin screw driver , it comes out, and then it will still be connected to the computer with a wire.  I doubt cleaning it will work, but you could, and see what happens, but if you look up your model number of your computer you could find one on the net.  or ebay that would work.  I like ordering new parts, because you know they are going to work for a while.

My lenovo G560 model 0679 keyboard rightside number keys 2 5 8 / etc do not work


Im sorry to hear that, if its really a hardware problem, what you can do is to replaced the whole keyboard since Lenovo do not send out parts for just a particular key on the keyboard. If the system is still under warranty, you can try to contact lenovo and they will process depot for you.

Hope this will help... Your response is very much appreciated...
