Sometimes food or other things get stuck under the key. Turn the laptop upside down and shake it out or use can o air. Otherwise keyboards can be replaced for a minimual cost.

Newer laptops don't have 'springs' they use rubber or silicone pads for support.

You could try prying the key open (with a thin clip or something) being careful not to damage it or the keys surrounding it.

Check for any debris or lint. Blow on it or just turn and shake it, you might find a staple or something.

Keyboard doesn't work


To determine if the motherboard is faulty, connect an USB keyboard to your laptop an see if the keyboard works properly. If so then the laptop keyboard may only need the keyboard connector unplugged and then plugged back onto the motherboard.

Keyboard doesn't work


Does your laptop work when you plug in a USB keyboard? When you startup the machine, do the keys respond (depending on your laptop, push the key to get into the system BIOS). If it allows you to get into the system BIOS, then it maybe a software issue.

Compaq CQ60 some keys not working


The keyboard maybe faulty.
Connect an external keyboard to youe laptop and if all the key work on this keyboard then most like the laptop keyboard is faulty.
If this external keyboard also malfunctions then the keyboard controller chip on the laptop motherboard is faulty and it would not be worth repairing as this is an old model laptop.

Hi, i have a toshiba x205-s9800. my two year old seems to have accidently pressed some keys and disabled the keyboard...please help...


You could have deleted the keyboard in the device manager. If so, rebooting your computer and it will find it.
Are all the keys not working or just some? Take a look at this hint and see if it fits.

ACER ASPIRE laptop PgUbp key came off.


Unless I'm missing something, just put the key back where it belongs. Push down hard, and it'll snap back into its place. If this doesn't work, check the underside of the key. If you see broken plastic, you'll probably have to find a new key. Acer laptops seem to have a problem with keys coming out and breaking (just look at the number of times this question has been asked!)

hope this helps

Some keys on my laptop`s keyboard doesn`t work such as g, h, backspace, fn and the windows button, what can I do?


Hi, if you spilled liquid on the keyboard then it probably needs to be replaced,
Try this... you can remove the keyboard by removing certain screws from the bottom of the laptop, then you open the laptop like if you are using it look to for sliders around the keyboard edges or if it just snaps in place, use thin flat screw driver to carefully remove the keyboard but do not pull far.. it should still be attached with a wide flat cable to the main board... now lets try to remove the cable completely and re-attach it ( when removing the cable use your small flat screw driver to pull the plastic connector snaps from the sides of the connector to loosen the cable and be careful not to break the connector, when attaching back put the cable in first and hold it while you push the connector plastic back in place)... try the computer to see if the problem is gone, if not then order another keyboard and replace it. best of luck

Keyboard problem. Key 3, @, #, y, n can't use


you may have shorted your keyboard (spillage??)

if your laptop is outside warranty you can check the connection to the keyboard, by removing the top bezel, undoing the keyboard retaining screws and then check that the ribbon cable for your keyboard is seated properly, If reseating this cable does not work the you can always order a replacement for your keyboard, you can find the part number for the keyboard you have, it should be printed on a tag on the reverse of the keyboard.
