What is "FN" key

Most laptop keyboards have a key marked "FN" or "fn". This is just another shift key, like the shift, control, and alt keys. If the instructions say something like "Press fn+F1" then press and hold the fn key, press and release the F1 key, then release the fn key. Exactly the same type of procedure as when the instructions say something like "Press Control+P".

My upper case S KEY WILLL only work if I have cap locks on. can you help me? ' Im using the MX5500 keyboard. thank you. Greg

Have you tried cleaning the keyboard, especially blowing it out with compressed air. Have you tried to use both shift button to see whether or not the problem is isolated to one shift button or both.Have you tried other letter with the same shift button that the letter "s" is having problems with. If this is islolated to just the letter "s" with the shift buttons then more than likely you will just have to use caps lock or buy another keyboard.

Both of my shift keys stick in the "up" position,

Hi Brown551967,

Its the dust & dirt in the keyboard problem. If you have a powerful vacuum cleaner, try cleaning your keyboard with that. But before that use a long bristled brush between the keys to loosen out any stubborn dust particles. Concentrate more on the affected keys. If this helps the fine else you might need to disassemble the keyboard and do a thorough cleaning. Please DON'T try it if you're not confident of doing it. Just cleaning it thoroughly will do the job.

Hope this solves your problem.

Sounds like a bad keyboard.
There is not so much that could be done to repair a keyboard. Disassemble the laptop, check the ribbon cable connecting the keyboard to the motherboard. If the ribbon cable is loose, tighten it. If it is tight, replace the keyboard with a new one.

Sounds like the shift key isn't entering. Try both shift keys and see if one will turn the light off. If so tou need a keyboard rebuild. It may be cheaper to replace it.

Shift key not working

You have 2 Shift keys on the keyboard. If the other shift key is working then the shift key that is not working is defective. You should consider replacing the keyboard on your laptop. There is no setting on Windows that can disable the shift key.

**Note : If both Shift keys are not working, Try to check if sticky keys feature on windows is on. Sticky keys should be disabled. To disable sticky keys, Click on start and Go into control panel > Accessibility Options, and under keyboard there is sticky keys. Remove the tick and click apply and OK.


**If "Use Sticky Keys" is unchecked, that means sticky keys is disabled.

30 seconds down the road and no bass and lot of smoke

Well, it burned up. Too much power.

It is repairable, however, that is not covered by any warranty.
