Question about Fujitsu Siemens CELSIUS Notebook

4 Answers

My Laptop Keys are malfunctioning, it types by itself, and I don't know what I did to it.

My laptop keys are malfunctioning. One day it was fine, and the next morning when I turned it on and tried to log in, it typed by itself. A friend who was at my house said that nothing happened to it (nothing was spilt over it, it didn't fall, etc). So I hooked up a USB keyboard to it, and that worked, for a while atleast. But now when I turn on my laptop, I have about 10 minutes run time, before it starts typing by itself. All it ever types is a long series of 1's. Another problem is that my warranty ran out about two months ago, and am now possibly facing large repair costs. So if anyone has any tips, please help. Mike

    See, the thing is, I tried to reset my computer, but I can't actually choose any options for reseting it, because the keys die on me. I have an HP Compaq nx7010, if that helps at all. And seeing as I lived in Holland, the replacement keyboard alone costs between 100 - 120 euros.

No teh problem can Also be that It may have a false contact in the one of the mother boards sokets where ribons hook or in one of the integrated circuits of it, do to the folowing: I've you previusly dismanteled and did not screw up all the screws under and in the laptop all the parts inside start to loosen a bit do to the regular use and movements after a wile so when ever you take it to a technisian be sure to chek and mek him remeber to put all the right screws in it's place, because they usualy do that to all there customers.

This is definetly a simple keyboard replacement. With the symptoms youve mentioned it cant be anything else. To find the cheapest replacement, remove the keyboard and search its model number. There may be screws holding it in or little tabs that need to be pushed in under the keys. Good Luck

Try starting your pc in "Safe Mode" This will load the absolute lowest setting you laptop will run. See if it acts the same in safe mode as normal. If it does not, do a system restore back to an earlier date (a week or so) when this was functioning properly. If it does, try to log on to the mfg website and reinstall the keyboard driver for your laptop.

    Has anyone had this unit apart recently? You might have a connection problem or the MB just does not recognize the keyboard. I would say if you can take the keyboard off (very carefully) and make sure it is clean and all the connections are made good. If you have the connections for an usb keyboard and/or mouse, you can try that. I looked on the web and you are correct, a new board for your pc would be about $120usd. Kind of expensive not knowing if it is going to work or not. If you have a MB problem then it will be quite a bit more expensive.

Sounds like just a bad keyboard. Look at an online auction site and you can probably pick up a keyboard for about 23 to 30 bucks. Hooking up an external keyboard does not cripple the internal keybaord.

Some keys are not responding on laptop keyboard but those are on usb keyboard


Here is what I would do to solve the matter completely I think your going to agree with me on this since you already mentioned it. I do not believe it is the software because you were using it fine before this happened.
I have replaced a lot of laptop keyboards with the same issue and no matter what I tried to get them working without a replacement I failed once I replaced the keyboard problems were gone. It is an electrical mechanical device and things happen as you already know. I was not much help but at least a try at it. John

Compaq CQ60 some keys not working


The keyboard maybe faulty.
Connect an external keyboard to youe laptop and if all the key work on this keyboard then most like the laptop keyboard is faulty.
If this external keyboard also malfunctions then the keyboard controller chip on the laptop motherboard is faulty and it would not be worth repairing as this is an old model laptop.

My toshiba laptop is typing wrong characters but my wireless tevion keyboard is o k. Is there a solution to this ?


Sounds like the laptop keyboard went bad and thats why its typing wrong characters. Best way to verify this is to use a USB keyboard on the laptop, if the USB keyboard is typing the correct keys then you know the laptop keyboard is bad. If the USB keyboard is typing the wrong keys as well then you know its a setting in windows that is causing the keys to type wrong characters.

Accidentaly spalshed some water on my laptop keyboard.


You may have to replace your keyboard at best. As this can be a difficult process depending on the laptop, I recommend a trained professional.
The loud beeping noise is called a beep code. One beep in most causes is a DRAM failure, which could mean that the problem goes deeper than a few messed up keys.
However once electronics become water damaged they are beyond repair. The minute amount of minerals in the water is enough to short out the tiny circuits in the keyboard and cause malfunction.
