    i fixed the problem, i removed the power cable and the battery from the laptop and tried to turn it on to drain any built up charge, put it back together and its working fine :)

Hello, my name is Chris. Easy solution. Buy a new key board. Thats all you can do in this situation. There not worth trying to fix. A key board will cost about 10.00.

    I have this same problem on my vaio. I did not drop, just must have hit some Stengel key combination. It is a laptop. Just replacing the keyboard is not that easy, not that that cheap, and probably won't fix the problem anyway since it is probably a setting.

Sony Vaio VGN-FS315E......At first the laptop could not detect the battery, so i was using the charger only but with the battery inside for sometime.I switched it on one morning and the laptop went of...


The battery might be damage for the time of use or maybe you put in a inadecuate space, the computer works perfectly without the battery but if it doesnt occure and the computer dont works with out the battery and the charger dont supply the energy of the pc maybe you can try with a new battery and a new charger if it doesnt solve the problem your internal hardware is damage or your software is corrupted or damage too.

The keyboard on my boss' sony vaio VGN TZ 340 seems to be locked. At least it doesn't work. Cleaning around it didn't work. Could she have unintentionally hit a key or function key that would cause this...


no there is no key that does that, your boss spilled somthing on it and thus it doesnt work, could need a new keyboard or just connection to motherboard.

Some keys on Sony Vaio VGN FS830w stopped working


Hi:
Most of the time it is a keyboard failure. You can troubleshoot this by plugging in an external keyboard and seeing how that works, but most of the time it is your keyboard. They are not expensive on ebay, maybe $15 + shipping, and not hard to change

Key for keyboard on a sony vgn a417m laptop


its not easy ,,,but you have to look at the spring assembly and see how it works,look at the bottom of the key button and see how it attaches.Once you figure that out and get it set right you just press it into place.Sometimes you can look at one that is still connected to the keyboard and see how its hooked up and that may help reassembling it.
