Re: home keys

How are you typing? do you have an external keyboard plugged in?

If keys are seriously not working, then you may want to try and reinstall the keyboard drivers.

Hit up the website of the manufacturer and search for the proper drivers.

If that doesn't work, it may be time for a repair. Hopefully it's under warrenty.

Key stuck on (keys are loose, not actually stuck) but works ok with external keyboard

There's more than likely something sticky in your keyboard, someone probably spilled liquid in there and now it's sticking as though your pressing even though you aren't.
A new keyboard will fix this problem.

My keys of my keyboard aren't working, what can i do to solve my problem? ( just especific keys aren't working )

The keyboard may be faulty or the keyboard chip on the motherboard may be faulty.
To determine id it is a motherboard problem, connect an USB keyboard into ythe laptop's USB port and if the keyboard works correctly then the laptop's keyboard needs to be replaced.
A replacement keyboard may be available from this WEB site.

Keys are not functioning!!!

You may need to install a new keyboard, what you do is try hooking up a external usb keyboard if that works then yeah your going to need a new keyboard. You can get these for $25 bucks from ebay. Now if the external does not work for some strange reason then you might have a further issue that is complex.

Let me know ether way.

Keyboard sound buttons dont work

I just bought an HP G60-230US so I am not sure if this will work for you but on my computer, you have to press the "fn" key along with whichever volume key you are trying to use.

I hope this helps!

Keyboard does not work

If there is a lock feature, its probably on it as a function key. (maybe the F1, F2, etc keys?) Function keys are usually a different color and need to be used while pressing the Fn/Function key (could be called something else, just look for something other than shift/ctrl/alt/windows key).

Logging Problem

Yeah, to release the numbers lock Windows has to be up and running. You can try a system repair with your recovery or operating system disc. If this doesn't work, check out the link bellow to make a bootable password breaker disc.
