Certain keys such as the "N" key and some others

Yes, a can of compressed air may solve it. Usually for me I need to remove the trouble keys and soak them in soapy water, dry them, and put them back on the keyboard. Be careful when popping them off as you can break them and have to order a new keyboard.
Please leave good feedback! :) Thank you!

I have just aquired a emachines computer and im wanting to connect it to a wireless router but its not allowing me to do this.

If you are using an eepc with a linux operating system you will need a wireless driver, go to the eepc support on another computer and download driver, alternatively get a copy of puppy linux, load onto usb and run directly from usb, it may have the driver inbuilt into puppy, a third prob is having to turn the wireless key on but as its a desk comp this wont happen, does the computer have wireless capability.

My Eepc Asus Laptop Keyboard is automatically typing letter A how can i solve this problem

Just pop the A key off with a butter knife or something flat. clean the rubber boot with warm water and replace. if that don't work, you need to get a new one. Some don't have the rubber boot. in that case you can use a que-tip with rubbing alcohol to clean under the key.

2wsx keys dont work

Sorry you are having trouble. This sounds like the keyboard is bad. Take it to a shop if you don't feel comfortable replacing it your self. This is a fairly easy job. Remove the bezel with the power switch. Then remove the keyboard. Let me know if you need more info.

Keyboard sticking

Hello, A sticky keyboard can sometimes be fixed by removing the key as you've done, but sometime the trouble lies deeper in the keyboard. There are small contacts that can wear out or get built up with a surface film. Might be time to replace the whole keyboard. It's not that hard if you have the aptitude and they do come out and go in as a complete unit. Cost for a new one can be from $20 - 50. Try looking on ebay & the link below.
Good luck, mpawlak908

Kid spilled soda now keyboard will not type

Hi There !!

Thank you for choosing Fixya. The chances are rare that it would work, because liquid may have done damage to the integrated circuit.

But we can give it a try:

What you will need:
  • lint free cloth.
  • dry cloth or duster.
  • suitable cleaning fluid (isopropyl alcohol).
  • cotton buds.
  • Can of compressed air or vacuum cleaner.
  • Flat tip screwdriver (optional for thorough clean).
Shutdown your PC and remove the mains plug, unplug the keyboard(remember where it was plugged in) and hold it upside down to releaseany debris from inbetween the keys.

This is where the patience comes in, make a note ofthe position of all the keys or you will have trouble putting them backcorrectly, alternatively just remove the letter keys A - Z from the keyboard (which is where the most of the dust/debris will be) and refer to fig 1.4 as a reference to put them back.

All the keys can be removed although the larger keys (space bar, enterkey, shift keys, backspace, caps lock, etc) can be difficult to putback so you might avoid removing them.

Remove the keys using the screwdriver, ease the screwdriver under the key and gently lift the key top off (see fig 1.3).

note: don't forget to make a note of their position !! remove-key-cap.jpg keyboard-layout.gifWhen you have removed all the keys (except any keys youwish to avoid) use the compressed air (or vacuum cleaner) to remove anydust and debris from inside the keyboard.

Now is a good time to give the keys a proper clean, for bestresults clean each one individually (the patience thing again) with thecloth and cleaning fluid, when clean, wipe them over with the drycloth.

Before replacing the keys, take your lint free cloth anddampen it with your cleaning fluid (don't put the liquid directly onthe keyboard), give the surface of the keyboard a good wipe overensuring to clean as much as possible any keys that you haven'tremoved.

When the keyboard is nice and clean replace the keys according to your notes or if you have just removed the letter keys use fig 1.4 as a guide, to put the keys back on position the key in place and press gently but firmly until it clicks home.

After replacing all the keys give the keyboard a quick wipe over with your dry cloth and you have a nice clean keyboard.

Hope this will help !

The number keys doesn.t work properly: `1 `1 2(f1) 3 54 54 67 67 =8 9 -0 -0 =8.. that should be: ` 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 - =

Sound's like dust is the issues here, so you will need to remove the keys that you are having trouble with or all keys to be on the safe side, once removed get a damp cloth and clean the keyboard where the keys once were and while your doing that soak the keys in some water to clean them up and dry them when done. Put keys back into place and test keys to see if problem as gone or not. Hope this helps.
