Re: Gateway SK9920 keyboard (2002)

I run into a problem after spiling some tea on my keyboard KB0401 gateway
i dried it and it did not work properly so I decided to buy replacement. I bought one on eBay
then I found a solution on internet, somebody suggested to put it in a dishwasher and run the cycle then let it dry completely. It sounded very crazy to me. Probably the same it will to you. Having a new keyboard installed I decided to "dishwash" the old one. Then I let it dry in room for two days and hooked it up to my computer. I was thinking that I am going to be proved, how foolish I was to believe in such a thing. And to my greatest surprise, it worked perfectly good. Now I know, I was stupid to by a new one.
I guess you never start to learn. So for those for you, who will have similar problem, try this solution first.
You might be surprised, as I was. If it does not work then you can proceed with buying a replacement.

You may try removing it and cleaning out any gunk on the key shafts, and possibly tighting the spring if there is one. If that doesn't help you might just have worn it out, and you'll need a new one.

I haven't tried this one myself, but applying a little WD40 might actually help lubricate the key (and loosen gunk), but don't "fill up" your keyboard.

There may be some moisture/dust in the circuit beneath the keys in the keyboard. Open the Keyboard , wipe the circuits with a dry tissue paper and reassemble the keyboard. Its just the rubber beneath the A button is also pressing the Caps lock contact on the circuit below the KEYS. The Simplest solution is replace the keyboard.

Hey my friends keyboard is typing letters incorrectly, can you help? It started when she tried remote assistance on the windows live program, and she has windows xp with a gateway keyboard

It may be that the default settings for the keyboard have been set to a different language/regional area.

You could try changing it and see if it works.

If you wish to change the keyboard layout, you can do this by right clicking on your taskbar and select "language bar". When this is done, right click on the keyboard symbol and select "settings".

Alternatively, go start>control panel>regional settings> and change it there.

My keyboard letter types wrongly to type @ I have to press shift and 2

UK keyboards use a different key for @.
If you wish to change the keyboard layout, you can do this by right clicking on your taskbar and select "language bar". When this is done, right click on the keyboard symbol and select "settings". Change the default language (to UK) and your keyboard will type correctly.

Keys on my SK9920 do I clean it?

The same thing happened to me with my gateway keyboard. The f2, f3, and f4 keys were stuck down in the keyboard itself. I just wanted a quick fix, so I soaked a paper towel, rung it out, and cleaned the keys like that, all the keys work wonderfully now
