My acer aspier e1 531 some keys are no working q,t,p,j,1,3,5


Probably, but first I would try cleaning it. Dirt, food and crust gets under the keys and keeps them from working. You can remove the keyboard and wash it, then blow dry with air or let it drain. DO NOT immerse the keyboard in water!! If you soak it, you will have to take it completely apart to dry it out.

Another possibility is the ribbon cable where it connects to the motherboard has built up a bit of corrosion. Disconnect it, wipe with a clean cloth and reinstall. BE CAREFUL. It's easy to break the plastic connector.

If both these fail, replace the keyboard.

What is the problem why the arrow keys functioning differently.


Disconnect and reconnect your computer keyboard, then restart your computer.

Sometimes a poor connection can result in keys not working on your keyboard


Update the device driver for your keyboard by going to the manufacturer's website of your keyboard, and then download and install the latest driver matching the brand and model number of your keyboard.



Disconnect your keyboard from your computer and inspect the pins in the keyboard connector if you have a PS/2 connector.


The PS/2 connector for your keyboard has six pins, which connect into a PS/2 port of your personal computer, to allow for communication to and from your keyboard.


Straighten any bent pins you may find, by gently using a ballpoint pen.

You must replace your keyboard if you see broken pins.



Try testing your keys using a different application, such as another word processing program. Keys like the function keys on your keyboard labeled F1 through F12 may not work in one application but will work fine in another.


Clean Under Desktop Keys


Disconnect your standard desktop keyboard, then press down on a key not working.

Slip a car key or a flathead screwdriver underneath the key.

Twist the screwdriver or car key until the keyboard key pops off.


Use a damp cloth, moist cotton swabs or compressed air to remove dust, hair, and food crumbs under the key.


Use only water or rubbing alcohol to moisten the cloth and cotton swabs---other cleaners can damage the plastic of your computer.


Position and press down on the key to snap it into place.

Repeat this for all of the keys to clean underneath them, if necessary.


hope this helps

Keys sticky on my pc keyboad


Depending on the keyboard, you may be able to remove the sticky keys to clean under them. This is typically caused by food or beverages being spilled into the keyboard.
If you can't clean the keyboard, or don't want too; hit Office Max or Staples. they typically have very cheap replacement keyboards.
If it is a laptop keyboard; you will have to find a replacement keyboard on EBay! or Amazaon.com by model number of the laptop.

My keyboard is working fine but my enter key or return key as they say and shift key below the enter key isnt working.


If there is a mechanical fault there is not much you can do. If other keys are working then there definitely is a mechanical fault. Some crafty expert has to remove those keys and find out what the problem is. There can be broken brackets underneath or there might be some drops of liquid food congealed underneath the keys. Only the person who will open the keys will find out first.

A single key failure on a portable is almost always a mechanical failure of the keyboard itself. The good thing is keyboards are generally cheap and easy to replace.

Some of my letters are not working, how do i clean them inside and out? i have to use the on screen keyboard, to compose a post.


Cleaning the keyboard involves undoing all the retaining screws underneath the keyboard
I'd only attempt this if you have a model keyboard to work from as you will need to replace the keys in correct order afterwards, as and when one falls out

Once undone, the top and bottom halves will be ready to come apart, turn the keyboard over so that gravity holds the keys in position, remove the membrane carefully pull each key out in turn and wash it in soapy water, drying it thoroughly, replace and re-assemble

In point of fact the non working key issue is most likely down to a failed circuit anyway, so the job of cleaning the board may not work, you would be far better junking the keyboard and replacing it. I do mine every 12 months as the keyboard loses its action and replacing it is a cheap alternative to cleaning it

The keys do not work. My 2 year old spilled coffee on my laptop. Some keys worked but most on the left side keys didn't. I tried to clean the keys with a cotton swab and alcohol. Now none of the...


Best solution now is to find a replacement keyboard. They are very easy to replace. Also, could use an external keyboard. Not ideal but it works.

As for cleaning, if the coffee had sugar and cream there is not much you can do.

There is one option I hesitate to suggest. Take the keyboard off, run it under warm water and let it dry for a few days before putting it back. May or may not work.

My keyboard will not work...makes loud beeping noise when it starts up...


Sounds like a key is stuck. Check all the keys to see if anything is stuck under them, and blow them out with a can of compressed air (keep the can upright, the liquid that can come out if the can is upside down damages electronics).
