I need to remove keys from my keyboard for cleaning


Most keys should 'pop' off but the tricky bit is getting them back on...
If you remove them I would advise taking a photo of the keyboard ... may sound obvious but putting the unfamiliar keys in the right place can be a test on your memory/recall skills to say the least.
1. First up, you need to use a small screwdriver to carefully remove all keys from your keyboard. Then loosen the rubber pieces from each of them and place them separately.
2. Once all keys are removed from your SAMSUNG NP-N145- keyboard, you can either use an ear bud or a cotton swab dipped in water to gently clean the inner regions of the keyboard. However, make sure that you do not use too much water for this cleaning purpose.
3. After cleaning the inner regions of your keyboard you need to start cleaning the individual keys using a light fluid and foam rubber. After cleaning these pieces you need to leave them alone to get dried up.
4. Once the keys are dried up you can assemble them back into the keyboard carefully. Make sure that the rubber pieces too are assembled in their appropriate places.

Hi

you could try doing this press the FN+F7 keys both at the same time leaving a few seconds
for it to either enable or disable and if this does not work then please press it again to put back to how it was

My T40 will not connect to my wireless network at home. I don't know what to do, please help.


Make sure the wireless card driver is installed and working.
Theencryption key secures your data from unauthorized access. The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, configure the router'swireless settings ie SSID, plus the WPAor WPA2 encryption key and then configure wireless cards in the laptops and orcomputers with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktopcomputers can communicate with your wireless router.

I was cleaning my laptop keyboard and accidentally popped off the 'N' key, I'm pretty sure the brackets are still intact, but I don't know how to reattach it, could you explain how please?


Hello and welcome to FixYa,

Carefully remove the cap from any other working key so the key retainer stays connected to the keyboard.

It is that simple! They should just 'snap' right back on!

Let me know how this worked out for you. If my solution helped you, please rate this solution!
It doesn't cost anything and only takes a second, but it is greatly appreciated.

Keypad


You're kind of vague on your problem. If it's the smaller blue numbers for the calculator, you will need to use the function (fn) key. Hold the fn key and press the key the reads number lock (num lock), this should return the keys back to letters. You can find more info on the fn key and numbers lock under help in the start menu. If this isn't your problem, be more specific, and I'll be more than happy to help.

IBM ThinkPad T40 Hard Drive Plug in Problem


The only question that matters as to the T40 HDD connector issue would be "is that ide connector standard?" If thats the case then its a simple matter of going to a component supplier and buying a connector and replacing it. So has anyone tried this already? Another fix I thought about is if you were able to make two small slits or holes in the board on both sides of the connector and get the smallest plastic zip straps you can find you could effectively press that down in place on both ends and problem solved. I am going to attempt this on a board tonight. The bottom line is, this is just another example of of shoddy manufacturing from an american company that supposedly cares about the customer. The truth is that piece is manfactured incorrectly in that its two seperate pieces on top of each other and the metal pieces interlock somehow to form the circuit connections. The problem with that is they used either some sort of glue or they heat pressed these two pieces together but should have had screws to ensure a secure tight connection! Why not?! They tightened the CPU down with so much torque you'd think they'd think to tack that down too. Unless they planned it that way to get money on repairs post warranty? Alright I won't start IBM conspiracy theories but I do think they just didn't think manfacturing through well enough. I'll keep ya posted on my experiment. Could be a good quick fix.
