You could try reseating the keyboard - unclip the section above the keyboard - remove any screws and lift the keyboard - there is a ribbon going to a connector on the motherboard - remove and reconnect this and try the keyboard.

If this does not rectify it is likely that the keyboard has somehow broken - you can buy a replacement and fit it in the same manner.

Thanks Jardinuk
I just tried your method and it worked for my eee 701 keyboard. First I removed the battery and made sure the AC wasn't plugged in.
Previously it had gone completely batty and kept throwing up menu item windows as if I was hitting alt key with each regular letter I typed. I did notice that my keyboard tray is warped around where the ribbon folds and connects to the mb. the result is that the alt key and space bar push upward more than the others, but they press fine. I haven't dropped it at all, but I had suspected that condensation from a frosty winter damaged it. :)

One thing to check before thinking about replacing the keyboard is to check for stuck keys.

You should be able to feel one that is stuck down or feels dead or heavy compared to the rest. That as a wild guess be the A key ;-] It can also be one of the surrounding keys so check those too but A is a good one to start with. If you haven't spilled anything on it then it can just be from a bit of wear and typing and hitting it at a off angle. If you spilled something then you most likely wasn't be able to fix it and need to replace the keyboard.

To unstick it try this first. Give the laptop a wrap with your knuckles on the bottom of the laptop about under where the key is. You want to be careful so you are going to do this no harder than what you do to knock on a door. It might take a few of these and the key should just pop up. You can also very carefully pry the key up. You have to be very careful not to pry too hard as it is easy to break the key mechanism on some keyboards. As well if you have to resort to prying it up generally that means the key was damaged or stuck bad enough that it will tend to stick on you again and you will have the problem again sooner or later.

Asus k50ij wont boot

The problem maybe the RAM, it is faulty or just needs reseating to make proper electrical contact.
Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up then remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you.

Then replace the Keyboard.,Vaio,VGN-AR150G,Laptop,Keyboards.aspx

In the above link where it states in bold letters -
Service manuals for Sony VAIO laptops and notebooks,

,left-click on - Get it here - to the right of VGN-AR.

This Service Manual is in PDF file format. The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files.

After you click on the file name, (VGN-AR), it may take up to 30 seconds, before the first page comes up.

Not your laptop, but perhaps this will give more guidance, in removing and replacing the Keyboard,



Just follow the steps up to removing the Keyboard. These are listed just to give you more info on replacing a Keyboard, not disassembling the entire laptop.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.


[ WOW, that Keyboard is expensive! Suggest you look around for a better deal. I just posted that example to give you info. Average price SHOULD be no more than $40 to $50. Ebay? ]

Looks like your keyboard has been hijacked. Turn your computer off and boot up in Safe Mode. When you hit the power button to turn the computer on immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE MODE. Select the Safe Mode option. Once safe mode is up things will look different to you. The icons will be bigger and the screen will be darker, that's normal.

If this started happening to you recently say only a day or two ago then lets try doing a System Restore to a date and time before it started happening. Click Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore. When System Restore pops up look for an option that will allow you to pick additional restore points than the one you see. You want to pick a date and time that was before your keyboard started acting crazy.
Let it run to completion then try typing again.
Don't worry, System Restore does not destroy your data, documents, music, pictures, videos, (programs (unless you added a program after the restore point you selected)). System Recovery destroys everything and sets your system back to when you first purchased it.
