This is generally a sensitivity issue with the keyboard. It's usually caused when the rubber depressors that activate each key start getting worn. Sometimes you can take each key off individually, take off the rubber depressor and clean the contact point on the keyboard and up inside the depressor where it makes contact. Clean it with with rubbing alcohol and Q-tips. This is alot of work and only fixes the problem about 60% of the time. Your only other option is replacing the keyboard.

Hello,

It sounds like you have a space bar that is stuck in the pressed position.

First, I would try cleaning with compressed air. This can be purchased at most any retail store in the electronics department. One you have it, just clean around each key as good as you can.

If that doesn't work, you can try to remove the keyboard so that you may be able to clean it better. Below, I have listed a site with instructions for removing the keyboard and also a site that has cleaning suggestions.

Thanks

It's an internal problem. If ocurring after messing with the keyboard the solution is to turn off the asus, unplug the battery, plug it again and turn on. It happens in both 700 and 900 models.

When I type a letter on keyboard it keeps repeating the letter


The key might be sticking down, which is probably a defect in the product. I tested an ihome keyboard (Bluetooth) and everything except the spacebar was prone to sticking itself down, no pop spill or nothing. So, I recommend to return the keyboard if you still have the receipt and get a Bluetooth Apple keyboard instead, as ihome is good for their docks, but their keyboards suck!

Spacebar on keyboard makes my computer go to sleep mode


Sounds like your keyboard is sending the wrong signal (the one telling your PC to enter sleep mode) to your motherboard when you press space key, which (if true) would indicate it's faulty. It could also be you've contracted a virus and is playing a particularly nasty practical joke on you (let's hope that's all it does). Try connecting another keyboard to your PC and see if that helps. If it doesn't, then you'll need to clean your computer of any viruses. Try also disconnecting your mouse and see if that changes anything. If your keyboard comes with a shortcut utility software for it, run it and check there's no shortcut set on your keyboard's space bar. You've additionally specified you're not using wireless keyboard, but could you also please write what OS you're on?

All of the sudden my Logitech wireless keyboard quit working. I changed the batteries, to no avail. I have no idea why it won't work. Rebooting didn't help.


there are two kinds of wireless device connection. you might be using a bluetooth or radio frequency. if its bluetooth you just need to pair it again by pressing the connect button underneath it then your computer should be able to detect it again. if there is a passkey then refer on the keyboard manual. for radio frequency type you just need to press the connect button from the receiver connected through usb then press also the connect button underneath the keyboard to pair them to the computer,

The keyboard doesn't work, even though I just changed the batteries. Now what?


>when wireless keyboard or mouse runs out of battery, you need to re-establish the bluetooth connection in order for them to be functional again. To do so, you need to press the connect button on the keyboard and the USB dongle connected to the computer at the same time for about 8-10 seconds to establish connection. After that, you can try typing again. Same thing applies to wireless mouse.
