Vgn-nw150j keyboard Sony Vaio many keys stopped working all of a sudden need help?


Laptop keyboards do deteriorate from time to time. Once any key stops working, it is time for a replacement. Doing so is not difficult. Simply undo the case screws and gently separate the case to expose the keyboard. The keyboard floats inside and lays in the main board. Lift gently and pull out the small flat wire connection. The keyboard slides out and replace with a new board. Place flat cable in port on the main board, lay keyboard on top of chassis, close the top/bottom of case, tighten screws and all done. Go on line for Keyboards.

How to use Alt Car key?


I am guessing the Vaio you have is a Canadian model, which has alternate keyboard drivers for English and French. On these models, it seems the alt car key only works with the French keyboard (durr). To switch, press the LEFT control key and RIGHT shift key at the same time, then release. Now if you use the alt car key like the shift key, i.e. hold it down then press another key, you should be able to access the pink characters. To return to English keyboard, press left-ctrl and right-shift together again.

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

How do I use the "AltCar" on my labtop?


Okay, I know this is an old question but when i searched for the same problem recently, it was the nearest I could find. So in case others are having the same problem:

The Vaio you have is a Canadian model, which has alternate keyboard drivers for English and French. The alt car key only works with the French keyboard (durr). To switch, press the LEFT control key and RIGHT shift key at the same time, then release. Now if you use the alt car key like the shift key, i.e. hold it down then press another key, you should be able to access the pink characters. To return to English keyboard, press left-ctrl and right-shift together again.
