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

Left shift key not working on laptop, pavilion g6

This is possibly a hardware problem, if you know how to disassemble the keyboard module you can check for broken lines, usually it is much easier to replace entire keyboard than repairing one key.
your alternative would be using ON-Screen keyboard program from windows; attaching a mini-wireless keyboard to your laptop, or be used to using the right-shift key.

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.

Im using vista as my os. and my laptop is hp pavilion, both my control keys are not working. what should i do?

You might have changed settings of stickey keys

Check the setting in start- control panel- ease of access center- make keyboard easier to use.

Go to sticky keys -uncheck the box.

Also check the other settings in it.

It will resolve your issue.

If yes.. if might need to remove the keyboard driver from device manager.

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.

Hello, your numlock keys are ON, find your Num Lock button and press it off.
It can be a 2 button combination like FN(function button) + Num Lock button. Then it should work.
other way is to press numlock on your external keyboard and then disconnect the board. see if it works.

HP Laptop keyboard fails... sporadically

I suspect your problem may be caused by the wireless keyboard, even if you are not using it. You may be using your computer in a "noisy" environment where the wireless transceiver is picking up random signals and corrupting the keyboard interface. Or the wireless keyboard driver could also be at fault.

Can you de-install the wireless keyboard from your system and see if the problem occurs again?

NOTE: I had weird problems with my Microsoft wireless mouse until MS came out with an updated driver for it.

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
