Sounds to me like somebody may have spilled something onto the keyboard. You could try to take the keyboard out and reseat it to see if that solves it. If not then the keyboard is bad and will have to be replaced.

I bought a Acer laptop for about a year and some month now but suddenly some key stop responding..... I need help please on possible solutions.


Replace the keyboard? If a few keys grouped together stop working, the matrix may be damaged, so replace the keyboard.

If a key on a laptop keyboard stops working it's usually bad news for the keyboard as it may well need to be replaced. Test the 'feel' of the button. Does it feel different compared to other buttons when you press it? I.e. does it feel loose, stiff, wobbly or like it sticks? Stiff or sticky could mean there is something stuck under the button, loose or wobbly could mean it is mechanically broken. Sometimes turning your laptop on it's side and tapping it firmly, not hard, can release it if there is a mechanical fault. Unfortunately however I think the fault is most likely to be an unrepairable one. You could always plug in an external USB keyboard to check if it the G key responds just to rule out an operating system fault but it is unlikely to be that. If the G button works when using the external keyboard you can be sure it is your laptop keyboard that is broken.
Replacement keyboards cost around $30 (eBay). There's a good guide on youtube showing how to remove the keyboard. http://youtu.be/OOor4uZRM9g

Power Button doesn't work


I have a Dell Studio laptop and sometimes some buttons become not responsive, including the power button. As for power button, I noticed that if you hold it for a few seconds, the laptop will turn on (at least in my case). The fix that works for me is as follows:

1. Turn the laptop off;
2. Disconnect the charger and take out the battery;
3. Wait for a few seconds;
4. Open the laptop lid (as you probably closed it while taking out the battery), push the power button and hold it for a few seconds. Nothing will happen as the laptop won't have any power, but it clears some sort of electrostatic load or whatever it's called;
5. Put the battery back in and turn on the laptop.

I used this for a few times, so perhaps it'll help in your case as well.

When i push the e,b,t,a,n ,or r button on my keyboard i get e3 ,bt5,a1, r is shif and nyt


I have often deal damage keyboard, and type of damage keyboard so much. For damage your experience, a variety of ways have been tried, but the result always failed. The best solution is replace keyboard.

Based on experience, three times I fix keyboard, without having to replace with a new keyboard.

First type of damage
All keyboard keys are not functioning, or functioning left side, right side not working
Solution
Remove the keyboard, and cut keyboard cable.

Second type of damage
When laptop is powered on, the sound (tiiiiiiiiiiit) so hard. When we press a button, suddenly appeared equal. example;
I press "y", y appears =======================
I press enter, appear =======================
Solution
Press and release button ~ ` , do it
repeatedly, when turning on laptop until laptop access the operating system.
.

12_4_2011_4_57_25_pm.jpg

The result is
1. When laptop turned on, there was no sound. Laptop turns normal.
2. When I press buttons, does not appear equal to. So all buttons normal function
3. There are three buttons that do not function [ { , ] } , \ '


Third type of damage
When laptop is powered, it looks normal. After entering the desktop, buttons z, x, a, s, q, w, e, does not work. If another buttons is pressed, appear equal. example;
I press p, appear p=======================
Solution
Do not turn on laptop (about 3 weeks)
This solution does not make sense, there is no technical explanation, and this solution so strange.

The fact that I experienced
This case occurred on the Acer Aspire 4736z, OS Win XP Prof.
After laptop not turned on, more than 3 weeks, keyboard returns to normal. All buttons are functioning normally. I can not explain technically, but this case never happened.


Solutions for you
The best solution is replace keyboard.

I hope this information useful.

Help please tell me why my keys will not work on my laptop.


Try using an external USB desktop keyboard (or a PS2 keyboard, if you have a PS2 jack on the laptop).

If everything works then, your laptop keyboard is malfunctioning. This is usually due to one of three causes:

1. One key is stuck in the "down" or "depressed" position (collapsed/dented silicone cup beneath, or damaged flex legs under key). Look at the keyboard from the side, to see f any key looks lower than the rest (or higher than the rest) Be careful taking it apart to clean and reassemble.

2. Bad ribbon connector, torn, or merely corroded/oxidized keyboard cable connector. This requires opening the laptop to fix. Usually 2-3 screws under laptop labeled as keyboard, allow it to be pried off. Release the cable LOCK, and remove the thin ribbon cable. Reinsert it 5-6 times to clean off contacts, and LOCK the jack again once you are sure it is all snug. If the ribbon was TORN, you will need a new one. Good luck, not easy to find on old laptops.

3. Worst scenario... someone spilled coke (the worst) or beer/beverage inside the keyboard. This eats up the printed oxide connectors, and this cannot be repaired. you will need a new keyboard assembly.. Use a magnifying glass to look between keys, to see if there is stickey, gooey material there. This would be the bad news indicator for number 3.

Keyboard's keys sometimes don't respond


It is not a driver it is a keyboard that is having troubles itself unfortunately, you can try to find new one on eBay since that ones printed wires sort of are broken. What happens is that your keyboard pops out a little and disconnects some letters so you need to press in the middle to get it back to work, the same thing was happening to previous one.
