    Generally, keyboards are pretty easy. I haven't worked on that model, but in general, the cover at the top of the keyboard is removable (Usually there is a spot on hte left or right to insert a scribe and lift the cover) then anywhere between 2 and 4 screws at the top of the keyboard, then lift and turn keyboard over, and disconnect the cable from the motherboard.

How to Clean Your Keyboard

<p><b><span>For Desktop Computer:-</span></b><br /> <p><span>The dust that accumulates in a work environment will get inside your keyboard. While this usually does not create a problem for your keyboard, it is a good idea that you clean it out from time to time. Here's how:</span><br /> <p><span>1. Disconnect the keyboard from your computer CPU.<br /> 2. Turn the keyboard upside down and over a trash can and gently shake the keyboard to remove dirt from between the keys. It is ok to give the keyboard a few slaps on its back side to jar loose any foreign material inside. Also, you can give it a few short blasts of compressed air to help remove debris. <br /> 3. You can moisten a soft cloth with a gentle cleaning agent to clean between the keys if you like.<br /> 4. Reconnect the dry keyboard.</span><br /> <p><b><span>For Laptop Computer:-</span></b><br /> <p><span>Laptop's keyboards are designed to last a very long time and as long as you don't spill liquid in to it, it should give you many years of worry free operation. You can clean the keyboard by using a very mild cleaner applied to a soft cloth or by cotton. Don't spray the cleaning agent directly on to the keyboard. Gently run the cloth or swab between the keys until clean. </span><br />

HP ProBook 4520s keyboard not working after restoring to fatory default.

Hi Amol, could you please provide that which key is not working properly. Or is that the issue with the Keyboard Language. If you installed a new OS on you PC the language should be changed. For that you need to open Contrl Panel-->Region and Language (if not available change the view by to small icons from category). --> Select Keyboard from the Tab--> Press Change Keyboards--> Select English US--> Apply & OK--> OK. You need to reboot your PC and test the Keyboard issue. If you still facing the same issue then please get back with the correct issue (which keys not working).

Requesting you to provide the status.

Rubber plunger came off the "i" key on my Dell XPS M1330 keyboard. How do I reconnect it? I have the key and plastic pieces that attach behind it as well.

Dear peg, As you have the plastic pieces, set it as previously it has, may you don't know but do it as much as possible. One think you remember that, set the plastic such that air can give pressure on the sensor. Apply some gum on the side of the rubber. After that see the key have lock which can set on the clamp which is on the key board. Set it and apply a little pressure. It will work. In real today the keyboards are non-repairable. So do it on your own and if you failure buy a new one.

Writing for friend - Ethel Edmond has conquest computer and the keyboard will not type unless she holds down the key/keys down. What is the problem with stuck keys are keys that will not type

You may have filter keys enabled....
to disable:

Category view:
Start > Control panel > Accessibility options > Accessibility options > Keyboard
Classic view:
Start > Control panel > Accessibility options > Keyboard

uncheck "use filter keys" and click apply.

Also, to prevent this from happening in the future, you may want to disable the shortcut.
Click on the "settings" box and uncheck the "use keyboard shortcut" option. Press ok, apply then ok.

I hope this helps! If this did help you, please give a thumbs up!

Please try to deactivate the Fn (function) key. That will help you get rid of your problem. Press Fn key + Numlock key once and try again. You can also try pressing the Fn key once and type letters in any word processor program with the key combination everytime you press the Fn key once. E.g. open the notepad, press Fn once and after that press ) with Shift.

If you have problem, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

My number five key is sticky. if i press it, nothing happens, but if i apply more pressure it sticks all the way down? hellppp

I don't have that keyboard in front of me so I can't tell you if you can just clean it. Most keyboard you can't however and a sticky key means time for a replacement keyboard.

The sticky can be from a few things. Something spilled on the key is usually the one. Then you can have a mechanical problem such as the return spring (if it has them) popped out of place. And the third is just wear.

Usually not worth fixing a keyboard anymore. Replacement cost on even a good keyboard can be pretty low.

Computer Freezes unless pressure applied

With the laptop turned off, take out the hard drive completely from the laptop and then reseat it back into its slot and make sure its nice and snug.

Then go ahead and turn it on and see it will run without freezing on you and having to apply pressure on the keyboard.

If that doesn't work then disconnect the keyboard and see if it will run smoothly without the keyboard. If it does then you might have a stuck key on the keyboard that is making the unit freeze so you might have to replace the keyboard.

The spacebar doesn't work consistantly unless ''pounded''

The spacebar is the most often used switch on your keyboard, so, yes, it's from overuse, but also from
the fact that it is the longest key on your keyboard and the closest to the edge, all of this combining to
make it the dirtiest key on the board.

So, get a keyboard cleaning kit, either professional or DIY which would consist of the following, cotton
swabs, compressed air, and maybe a toothbrush and realize that all the stuff that accumulates under
your keyboard's space key makes it harder to depress to the point where contact is made.
