Re: keyboard problem

Sounds like your keyboard is going bad or already has. Try to plug in an external keyboard to see if the same thing occurs. If the Keyboard works then you no for certain it is your Keyboard. Let me know!

Spilled a drink on my keyboard and now 2 lights appear under the F10 and F11 key. when i turn it on it goes to a boot screen and will not budge. the one time i got it to boot properly i couldn't log in...


Unfortunately, the keyboard is most-likely shot. For an immediate (possible) solution is to connect an external keyboard. This might allow you to boot the system but it depends on how much damage the liquid did.

Replacement keyboard are fairly inexpensive (probably under $50) and usually fairly easy to replace as long as you have a basic understanding of computer hardware.

To get pricing on keyboards simply do a search by typing the laptop number " L305-S5907" and and the word "keyboard"

I do hope this helps and wish you the best of luck!!

Have an Acer 5100 Aspire. Keyboard, touchpad both not working. If I hold down Alt+Tab+F10 while powering up the laptop will keep the computer from booting up, but nothing else. I have tried USB keyboard...

Do one thing performing the recovery option by ALT+F10 and restore your system to factory default

before that you take backup with the important data

I was working in a computer with the same problem, when you remove the keyboard and the keyboard cover at the right side of the power button you can see an small plastic cap with two wires, is the num lock led, when the wires are under the top cover and the screws of the keyboard or the cover are too tight the wire is damage and make contac with the earth shuting down the power supply, check the wires, repair if broken and take care that its not under the top cover when you assembly.

My light under the f10 turns on for not reason and then 0 will start going in all of my username or passwork or whenever I type. Thanks for help Steve

That commonly happens when something a key is stuck. as you are having an issue with two keys the problem is likely dirt or moisture in the keyboard itself. as the f10 and 0 keys are near eachother and also near the edge of the keyboard I am leaning towards something being in the membraine of the keyboard itself. Laptop keyboards tend to be spot welded and or glued making them impossable to take apart and clean properly. if you cant get it cleaned with compressed air you would be best to find a replacement keyboard from the original manufacturer or an otherwise broken laptop from ebay.

My f10 light is permanently on...

Do you mean the little light below the keys? Just hit the "FN" (usually on the lower left of the keyboard between CTRL and ALT key (you may have tapped it accidentally) and that will turn them off.

Key board is not typing

Hi there.

Try going to the BIOS and testing the keyboard there to see what happens. You do this by tapping the F10 key at start up when you see the HP INVENT splash screen. (The key may be different just keep an eye on the screen and it will say Fx for setup), try using the up and down arrows here. If it works then it probably just a windows problem, reinstalling the drivers should fix that, if not, or you're not able to get to the BIOS, try a different keyboard and see what happens. If the external works but the internal keyboard fails to function, you maybe looking at a hardware problem from what you are describing. Let me know what happens and we'll go from there! :-)

?The CD or DVD Drive is not inserted".....error message

You may have pressed the Fn (function key) and F10 by accident at some time, pres Fn and F10 again to turn off the embedded cursor keypad, this enables/dissables the light grey labeled keys. This is all i can find related to that key, otherwise the other function is a light to show the dvd is active, but that icon doesnt look like a 4 leaf clover. This may be the problem when you type, so either the keyboard sensors are faulty or turn off the Fn F10 cursor use, or go to my computer>right click>properties>hardware tab>device manager and in the next window look down to ythe line that says keyboards, click '+'sign and on the line below right click then select uninstall. Restart notebook and the keyboard will self install again hopefully the problem will be solved.
