Re: keyboard problem

Depends on the age/use of the device.
If well used ore to do with the board.
Are you able to ix it I guess you are thinking.
Well I will explain what need to be done and you decide.
The keys press down on a rubber like sheet with indentation with a magnetic spot in the middle.
When you press the key it presses on the indent pushing it to contacts on a circuit board.
These contact can lose their connectivity. but can be restored with taking off the sheet and cleaning  in warm water. and dying thoroughly.
It means however total dismantling the machine from the bottom up and the sheet will be the last bit before the keys,
Or send it to a repair shop

What is wrong with my laptop? It is as if the shift key is stuck

Go into device manager in windows and delete it and reboot. If it comes back when it detects the keyboard and it works then it was a driver, if it does detect it or it wont work correctly then it is a bad keyboard. You can also try a plug in keyboard to see how it behaves, ps keyboards are not that expensive.

My drop down function key is not working for toshiba satellite c660 11r with windows ultimate sp1

if this function works on on-screen keyboard then it has nothing to do on your software or operating system, your keyboard is the problem. Your can spray it with a contact cleaner or if that doesn't work at all you can replace the keyboard with a new one.

Hi! my acer aspire one notebook keyboard not working. i tried to restore the system but still not working. sometimes it works but it automatically write letters without touching any keys. we also tried to...

There might be some sticky stuff under the keys. It could also be that the plastic, or rubber that acts as a spring to keep the keys sticking onto the controller is getting weak. This can happen to keys overtime.

Try the following:

1. Turn the laptop off
2. Press the keys several times and compare the feedback for all keys.
You'll notice the difference.
3. Carefully take off the faulty key from the keyboard and clean using clean cloth, or ear buds.
- Make sure you know what you're doing as this can damage the keys if you're not careful.
4. Fit the keys back.

If the above doesn't work then am afraid you need to buy a new keyboard. You can find this on online stores like ebay.

hope it helps.

Some of my kerys arent workng....underscore...equals and the letter eye....can you help?

Usually it's a hardware problem. Easiest thing to do is order a replacement keyboard from eBay and just swap the old one for a new one.

In the meantime any usb keyboard will work.

Best of luck!
