Regarding my keyboard problem

Some of the keys in my keyboard of my LGR 40 laptop is not working. So I am using a wireless keyboard temporarily. But I want to replace that with my original keyboard in my laptop because the wireless keyboard is hard to carry around. How can I fix it?

    Thanks for the help. But I spilled the coffee in my laptop and since then the keyboard started functioning improperly. I mean if I press "S" it will type as 1 or 2 or something else. Also some of the keys doesn't even work at all. So, how can I fix it? Do I need to get a replacement keyboard for my laptop? But I don't know how to get that online. I have a LG laptop and it's model is LGR 40. I would be really grateful for your help.

    Thanks for that. But the problem is that I couldn't find my laptop manufacturer in the US. My brother got it for me from Hong kong. I might be dumb but I couldn't find my laptop manufacturer online either. Could you help me to find the manufacturer online? I would be really thankful. My laptop is from LG and it's model is LGR40.

    What type of laptop do you have? Most laptop keyboards are relatively easy to replace, just need to make sure you look out for the short and sometimes delicate ribbon cables that connect them to the motherboard.

You can try to use an air can and clean it out if you have not spilled anything on it. Also take the keyboard out and make sure the connection has not come loose and clean the keyboard at the time with an aircan (can of compressed air by the way) holding keyboard vertifcally and blow down between keys. If that doesn't work go to ebay or other such site bye new keyboard they do sometimes just die

Where is the switch on my laptop that turns on wireless receiver

Your functions key on the top of the keyboard will have a blue antena icon on it. Most of the time its F9. You will also see a function key on the bottom left of the keyboard, a blue "Fn" key.

Press Fn and F9 (or the key with antena) together. Your wireless will be on.

Below is the image of the Notebook keyboard, the key to be pressed in highlighted in Red.

How would i connect my wireless keyboard to my lap top ?

Simply use the insulation disk that came with the wireless keyboard to install it on your laptop . You may have to modify your device settings with regards to the internal keyboard when you enable the wireless keyboard . Load the installation CD into the laptop and follow the directions . The software might setup and modify your device connection settings automatically for you , and perhaps with options or hot keys to switch from wireless and internal keyboard settings on the fly .

Compaq notebook laptop: my mouse pointer or arrow is

If you have a manual for the notebook, check to see if you can use the function key and the similarly coloured key on the keyboard which enables/disables the touch pad. Usually you can disable the mouse pointer touch pad with this FUNCTION key + MOUSE key when pressed together. Often these keys have the same colour (usually blue). The purpose is to disable the touch pad when you are using an external USB or wireless mouse, then you press the 2 keys again together to enable the touch pad once you have removed the USB/wireless mouse.

If that doesn't work, borrow a USB mouse and attach it to your notebook to use temporarily while you diagnose the problem.

Keyboad doesnt work hp pavilion dv9823ea laptop

The keyboards on laptops are somewhat fragile, and would be the first thing that should be tried. They are not too hard to change, and relatively inexpensive, about $15 on ebay. You could plug in a external, USB keyboard to use temporarily too.

Couldn't find the wireless connection on the says wireless connection is switched to switch the wireless communication on

gkmigmar -

Are you using a laptop? If so, the wireless adapter is turned on one of two ways:

#1 - There may be a physical switch, either on the front or side-edge of the laptop (when on, the wireless LED will will turn on, usually looks likes a little "beacon" or transmitting antenna-picture on the unit)

Or #2 - Look at the Function-keys at the top of your keyboard... generally either F2 or F3 is the wireless toggle switch (on many laptops). Look for a little picture of the "beacon" (or something similiar) on one of the F-keys. To toggle on and off:

Press and hold the Function Key ("Fn", located on the bottom row of your keyboard) and then tap the appropriate Function key. Again, the wireless LED should light up.

If you are using a desktop, comment on this post with the make and model of your desktop, and if the wireless adapter was included with purchase, and I will be glad to assist you in turning it on!

Hope this helps!

Broken keyboard

To start you can temporarily use an external USB corded keyboard, do not use a wireless keyboard, a corded usb keyboard won't require drivers, and you can access the system straigh away. You can buy a wired usb keyboard at any computer shop for $20/$30.

After you access to your system using your external keyboard, do a backup of your data, and have laptop internal keyboard replaced. The spare is not expensive, but the job should be done by a technician, here is the replacement part: Laptop keyboard replacement for Dell Inspiron E1405
