SOURCE: i have a sony vgc-la2

When pressing the connect button on the keyboard, you may also need to press the connect button on the USB receiver (I inferred from your post that you are only pressing the one on the keyboard?).

Try the button on both devices at close to the same time and see if that doesn't do it for you and let us know how it goes?

Good luck.

SOURCE: keyboard doesn't work properly

Turn on your computer, go to the control panel, if you are using Windows XP, click on switch to classic control panel" and then go to Accessibility Options. There is a keyboard tab that the settings can be changed to help people with disabilities operate their keyboards better but if you hold down certian keys for more than a few seconds, Windows XP will activate these settings. Sounds like your son accidently turned on "FilterKeys" There is a check box on the Keyboard tab of Accessibility Options that turns off FilterKeys. If "Use FilterKeys" is checked, uncheck that box and then click "OK" and see if that helps.

Good Luck!

SOURCE: Wireless Keyboard stopped working

Usually there is a sync (or synchronize) or connect button on the keyboard and also one on the base...the base is the part that plugs into the computer.  Press both buttons at the same time and the base should find the keyboard.
If not, please add a comment to this question with the make and model of the keyboard and we can go from there.  :)

SOURCE: keyboard typing something other than the letters it should

Pressing the left control and shift at the same time fixes this for me.

SOURCE: trying to find replacement for 375376-001.

If you just type 375376-001 motherboard into Google, you'll see places that sell direct replacements (as well as some ebay listings.)

The general listings I see tend to run over $200 for the mainboard. You may want to consider if it's worth a direct replacement or just putting the money toward a newer machine.

One letter is not working on my keyboard


One moment you are typing on your computer keyboard as usual, when suddenly a key sticks or does not produce a character on the screen. Perhaps you have a group of keys that suddenly stop working. Laptop and desktop keyboards alike can stop functioning due to a number of causes, most of which can be resolved by troubleshooting. Knowing how to fix some keyboard keys that do not work can save you time, and save you the cost of buying a new 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. Y ou 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. b> Clean Under Desktop Keys b> 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. b> Clean Under Laptop Keys b> Turn your laptop off, then use a flathead screwdriver or knife under a key corner, prying the key off gently. You will hear a snap as the key detaches. Remove the key retainer remaining on your laptop using your knife or screwdriver under the corner, then popping it off with a gentle twist. Remove the space bar by pulling it off after your insert the screwdriver or knife underneath the bar. Clean underneath your laptop keys using cotton swabs or a soft cloth dampened with water or alcohol. You can also use compressed air to remove dust, hair and other debris. Replace your laptop keys by placing the key retainer into position. If you cannot remember the position, copy another retainer's position by removing another key. Insert the keypad into the retainer, then position the key over the retainer while pressing down on the key. You should hear the key snap into place. Place your laptop's space bar over the space bar slots, then snap it into place.

Missing letters k,v,n,d when typing these letters


To determine if the keyboard controller is faulty or the keyboard is faulty, connect an USB keyboard to your laptop. If all the keys work on the USB keyboard then the laptop keyboard is faulty and it needs to be replaced.

Key stuck on (keys are loose, not actually stuck) but works ok with external keyboard


There's more than likely something sticky in your keyboard, someone probably spilled liquid in there and now it's sticking as though your pressing even though you aren't.
A new keyboard will fix this problem.

My blitz doesnt text


Try this. Touch Keypad simulates a wireless phone keypad on the touch screen to allow you to enter text, numbers, and symbols just as if you were using a wireless phone keypad.

To use Touch Keypad or Touch Keyboard:  In a program, tap the Input Selector arrow, and then tap Touch Keypad or Touch Keyboard. To type lowercase letters, tap the keys on the dial pad or keyboard. To type a single uppercase letter, tap the Shift key and then tap the corresponding key. To type all uppercase letters, tap the Shift key twice. To change back to all lowercase letters, tap again. To enter a space after the word, tap the Space key. To start a new line, tap the Enter key. To backspace and delete a single character in any input mode, press the Back key. To open the Symbol pad, tap the Symbol key. To change the input mode:  Tap the Input mode key to switch to a different input mode: XT9 (predictive), Multitap (abc), or Numeric (123).

Hope this helps, let me know if this works or if I can help you with anything else.

Broken LCD TV Screen


Hi james daum,
Unfortunatly usually the price for the LCD panel cost more than buying a new tv. I would not throw it out though. You have a couple of options.
  1. Buy a non-working same model tv with a good screen and swap the internals over. You can sometimes find them on Ebay.
  2. Sell it as non-working on Ebay or like auction site.
  3. Try to find a used screen at a decent price. You may try ShopJimmy.com
Let me know if I can assist further and please rate this solution. Lone99star

I have just bought my son a laptop,i cant get connected to my live box it says the wireless is on but the light is not on also on the keyboard i have to hold the fn button down to use the letters m j k l u...


Have a look at the F keys at the top of the keypad. The fn key is a toggle key. It changes the mode to something and then back again when you press it. There will be an F key with a picture of a keyboard on it (probably) (Dont press the one with the the picture of a computer on or your screen will go off)
Press fn and the keyboard Fkey together to toggle back to alpha keyboard rather than numeric.
