Q, W, E, R not working.

For about a few months now, those key have not have been working. I tried taking out and cleaning the them, but they still don't work. I'm currently using the on screen keyboard, but it takes a VERY long time to type if you're a fast typer like me. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Hi there i have a toshiba laptop and i had the same problem but what they taught us in school was to first use the system restore and see if restoring to a earlier point corrects the problem and if not than go to device manager and look for the keyboard and uninstall it from there and than power down the computer and restart and the new hardware found will show up let it reinstall the keyboard drivers it should reinstall all of the drivers for the keyboard and all should be good to go ...
best regards mike

Hi there.
Many laptop keyboards tend to start doing this after prolonged use (including my own), there is no way of fixing them.
What you need to do is replace the keyboard, in the meantime, you can use a small usb keyboard or use the on-screen until you get the keyboard replaced.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!

    The best keyboard for a laptop is a rubber one you can roll up and pop in your laptop bag!!
    And!!! the best thing of all !! they are not expensive, i live in the UK and the cheapest is around £5 which is $7.50 in USD.
    If you want me to get the info on the laptop keyboard let me know

    Thanks for using Fixya!!

2001 Monte carlo...ignition will not turn from "OFF" position.(like wrong key)have had no issues with key in past and have tried spare key already


Good Evening, unfortunately it does happen. They are known for ignition problems, we had one on the lot for 3 months started every day, then one morning it just decided it did not want to turn at all. We took some brake clean and sprayed a little at a time taking the key out and wiping it off every time to get the grub out of it. then sprayed some pb blaster a few times and wiggled as we went and it finally freed the stuck tumblers. Try that and let me know how it goes.

Hello: My V55 worked perfectly when I put it away a few months ago... now, I hear the audio from a video, but no picture. Are there settings on the ipod to switch around?


I'm pretty positive that the iPod will 'just work' when you plug it in to a device like that.

Since you said it was working perfectly a few months ago, I would suggest you clean it out as best as you can. Take it apart, blow it out, clean the connectors with isopropyl alcohol (the highest % you can find) and clean the connectors on the ipod too.

Do you perhaps have another device to test the video output on the iPod on? Do you have another iPod you could try in your V55? Try switching things around and see if you can narrow down the problem.

Has been sitting for months, dead battery. door locks are jammed


Take nozzle of WD-40, stick it in key slot as far as you can, lots of spray in there and keep spraying as you pull little red nozzle out slowly, and give it a little time, and try working key, first just slide it in & out a few times then keep trying to turn it. May take 2 or 3 sprayings to unseize things.

Acer aspire one notebook broke


you might be able to fix it by taking the battery off and popping off the keys and cleaning underneath the keys with gentle cleaner - that worked for me when i got sticky keys from orange juice; but be gentle when you take the keys off as they are on very fragile hinges and you don't want to break them...also - be sure that anything you do from here on out may void your warranty

Sticky keys


Dear rwertheim


Try the following guide

http://www.laptoprepair101.com/laptop/2007/03/20/key-fell-off-keyboard/

There are no guides from Gateway for the keys available for the but this guide will be more than enough to help you through this one in order to remove them. Its should be completely the same principle.

Cleaning the keys should be done without alchohol based cleaners because the lettering might be erased. Use some soap and warm water instead and gently scrab with a soft brush the bottom of the keys.

Please remember to take out your laptop battery/ac adaptor in any case since you will be working at hardware level with your equipment.

Regards, and I wish you no more sticky keys!

Problem with 330RS


I fixed one of these for another person a few months ago by using a little bit of electrical contact cleaning spray which is available from electronics stores. I let a small amount of spray in around the shutter press button where it seaped into the switch. After a few presses it started to work reliably, and has been ok to this day to my knowledge. Do not apply too much as it is unknown where any excess would go if it got loose inside. Hope this helps
