Remove batteries from KB and type randomly over the KB for about 20 secs to discharge the capacitors. Reinsert the batteries in the proper orientation and reconnect to dongle. If the problem persists, uninstall and reinstall the KB software. Also ensure that there is no source of interference nearby like strong magnets, powerful speakers, etc..

Let me know how it goes.

Sounds like its a problem with the receiver. Try reinstalling the usb receiver and make sure that its being recognized properly by windows. Also make sure your receiver is positioned good so its not to far from the mouse or keyboard.

If it is then type and if your having the same problems then they keyboard would be faulty at this point. Many times the main board inside of these keyboards go bad especially if water may have gotten spilled on them.

Keyboard won't work


When a keyboard stops working, has odd key letters, stuck keys and non-functioning keys for no reason at all, the laptop may have an easy fix solution. However, if liquid spilled on the laptop or the laptop was dropped and as, a consequence, the keyboard doesn't work, or the keyboard device has simply failed, fixing the problem may require a more involved laptop keyboard replacement.

Click start control panel keyboard hardware make sure you have the right keyboard selected or you might have uninstall the keyboard then restart your computer then reinstall it and its drivers Click start control panel administrative tools computer management device manager scroll to keyboard you might see a yellow question /exclamation mark ? ! or a red X right click update driver if your computer came with a motherboard disk the drivers could be on it. If its still not working Tap the "Alt" and "Shift" keys simultaneously if you are pressing one keyboard key and getting a different symbol or letter. This will reset the keyboard defaults on some laptops. Press the "Ctrl" key and tap the "Shift" key simultaneously if the procedure in Step 1 did not work. Press the "Fn" and one of the "F" keys to disable the "Num Lock." Different laptops use different "F" keys to disable the "Num Lock." Toggle each "F" key and press the "Fn" key at the same time to find the right key combination. Check your laptop manual to find the right key combination. Press the "Fn" key and the blue "NumLock" key simultaneously if the keyboard is typing numbers instead of letters or wrong letter keys and the above steps did not solve the problem. b> Keyboard Maintenance b> Blow compressed air in the cracks and crevices of the laptop keyboard. Sometimes dust and debris can cause keys to lock, making such keys non-functional. Disconnect the laptop from the power outlet and remove the battery. Make the tip of a cotton swab as thin as possible by rolling it between your finger tips. Dip the thinned cotton swab in rubbing alcohol and clean the crevices of the keyboard with the cotton swab. Continue cleaning between each key of the keyboard with the alcohol-dipped cotton swab. Use a new cotton swab whenever necessary. Slightly tip up one side of the laptop so dust will move from under the keys to the crevices so you can clean. Blow compressed air into the keyboard again as you did in Step 1 of Section 2. Reconnect the computer to the power and check to see if the issue is resolved. Insert the flat edge of a flat-blade precision screwdriver under a keyboard key and gently pry it up and off. Remember where the keys go, so you can easily replace them. Remove three keys at a time and clean with a cotton swab dipped in alcohol. Replace the keys and remove the next three. Do this until the entire keyboard has been cleaned. Disconnect the laptop from the power outlet and remove the battery again. Turn the computer so the rear is facing you. Remove the screws that hold the plastic hinges in place. Insert a small flat-blade precision screwdriver in the plastic hinge seam and pry the hinges up. Turn the computer back face forward and open the screen as far back as it will go. Continue lifting the plastic hinge and power plate until it comes off. Remove the screws you see holding the keyboard with a precision Phillips screwdriver. Blow compressed air under the keyboard. Lift the cable connector levers slightly and remove the data cable. Clean the cable pins with an alcohol-dipped cotton swab. Replace everything, power on the computer and try the keyboard again to see if the issue is resolved. b> Keyboard Replacement b> Connect an external keyboard to the USB port on the laptop and verify its working condition. Disconnect the external keyboard and verify that the keys on the laptop are still inoperable. Disconnect the laptop from the power outlet and remove the battery. Remove the laptop keyboard as you did in Step 3 of Section 2 by removing the plastic hinge and power button plate, the keyboard screws and disconnecting the data cable from the motherboard connector. Replace the keyboard with a new laptop keyboard for your laptop make and model.

Laptop won't start after installing new keyboard


Check the screws. One of them may be too long and is shorting out the laptop. If they are all the same length, I would remove them all and try it. Then install them one at a time to find out which one makes it work or, not work.

Toshiba Satelite L515 - S4960 Keyboard, some keys not working, have tried System Restore unsucessfully (unsecified error ocurred) Please help


System restore won't do it. If it is only some keys not working and others are, unless you've added some shortcut keys it sounds more like a problem with the keyboard itself and would have to be replaced. Sometimes it maybe dust or grit that is under a key/s and the key isn't fully compressing and making contact. You can carefully blow it out lightly and check for hair- human or pet hair can also mess up the contact.

If you happened to spill something on the keyboard that would wreck the keyboard too....

Keypad seizing..when ever i want to type,some of the keypad hang and i need to hit the letters several times.


It seems that keyboard has started to malfunction.. it happens after some time.. If possible replace the keyboard.. Get a new one from the marke.

In the mean time you can try cleaning the keyboard once, so that if dust on any other dirt is affecting the performance, you can overcome that..

Use a blower to clean that..

Hp dv9910us laptop I am having a problem with the keyboard. When I want to type the letter e it comes up as er also when I type f it comes up fg and if I try to type the letter b it comes up bn all other...


First I would check to see if the NumLock is pressed. That can cause issues with typing on the letter key.
If this does nothing, remove the battery from your laptop. With the battery removed, press and hold the power button for perhaps 15 seconds. This should reset your motherboard which could solve the issue as well.

I would be interested in hearing back if these suggestions fixed your issue.

Two keys periodically will not work - 1 and z - then if we keep hey depressed long enough, they work. Tried new batteries. What is lide expectatncy of thsi keyboard?


Should last a long time as long as the keyboard is being treated in a rough manner. I've had my keyboard for 3 years now and it still works fine.

Alot of times, dust or dirt gets in the keys and that can cause problems. You may want to use a can of air and blow underneath the keys to get extra dust or dirt away from it. That can cause keys act funky. Also any kind of liquid can cause problems as well.

How do i fix a key on a keyboard that is not typing the letter all the time


things to try:

1. Blow the dust out of it and clean the crud out from under the keys.

2. You can very gently pop out the key and remove the little rubber cap under it and clean the contact. I usually use a pencil eraser very gently. also clean under the little rubber cap a bit. and reassemble.

3. Worse come to worse swap out the offending key assembly with the ~ key. and relabel the new key with either whiteout or a magic marker depending on key color. Also great for laptops that are missing keys.

4. get a new keyboard.

Hello expert


try cleaning it before you mess with any settings.

Cause:
Your keyboard or number pad may collect dust and other deposits from regular use. Occasional maintenance helps keep the device looking clean and functioning properly.
WARNING: Before cleaning any electrical device or equipment, ALWAYS remove the device from its power source.

Solution:
  • For cordless keyboards or number pads, remove all batteries before cleaning.
  • For the diNovo Edge (a rechargeable keyboard with a built-in, non-removable battery), or any other similar device, switch the keyboard OFF before cleaning.
  • For corded keyboards or number pads, shut down your computer and disconnect the keyboard from the computer before cleaning.
Keyboard and number pad cleaning suggestions:
  • Use compressed air to blow dust and other debris from between the keys. Logitech suggests using an air duster squeeze bulb specially made for keyboard cleaning to limit the force of the air pressure.
    NOTE: Avoid using high pressure air hoses and nozzles. Excess air pressure can remove keys or cause other damage to your device.
  • Use a small tipped vacuum cleaner to remove dust and other debris from between the keys. Logitech suggests the use of a small tipped vacuum cleaner specially made for keyboard cleaning. Many come with USB power cords and can run off your PC or laptop.
    NOTE: Avoid using vacuum cleaners other than the type previously described. An excess vacuum level and/or large vacuum tip can remove keys or cause other damage to your device.
  • Use a dry, lint-free, non-abrasive micro-fiber cloth to gently wipe clean the surface of your device. Logitech suggests using cloths which are specially made for keyboard cleaning.
    Note: Avoid using dusted disinfectant cloths or cloths dampened with liquids unless specifically designed for keyboard cleaning. Many cleaning solvents, chemicals, and other liquids can cause electrical and/or material damage your device. This includes leftover residues which can eventually damage your device over time.
Additional information:
Many consumer electronics stores and online re sellers offer third-party computer cleaning kits which include dry wipes, swabs, air duster bulbs, and micro-fiber cleaning cloths. Some higher-end cleaning kits come with keyboard vacuum cleaners, and/or product-safe disinfecting liquid for dampening wipes, for use in disinfecting the surface of the device. These liquid disinfectants are supposed to be non-conductive electically; quickly evaporate from the sevice and leave no residue. Logitech suggests you make sure these characteristics are plainly stated and guaranteed on the product package. These specially made keyboard cleaning kits are highly recommended.
IMPORTANT NOTES:
  • DO NOT pour any liquids onto the device.
  • DO NOT submerge the device in any liquids.
  • DO NOT use a dishwasher, ultra-sound cleaner, or any other washing machine to clean your device.
  • DO NOT remove keys from the device.
  • DO NOT use cleaning solvents. Many cleaning solvents contain caustic chemicals which may cause damage your device.
  • DO NOT use drying machines, fireplaces or ovens (even set at lowest temperature) to dry moisture from your device.
Removing keys; submerging or pouring liquids on your device; using washing machines; exposing your device to excessive heat; or using caustic cleaning solvents may cause permanent damage to your device and will void the warranty.
