Re: my keyboard on my laptop all works perfect exept
Check to make sure that the NUM lock light is off. I do this all the time. Look for a numlock key and it will be used with a function key as well. The color of the Numlock key and the color of the funciton key is usualy blue.
I hope that this helps
Thanks for using Fixya

Well it depends on the brand of the laptop. Look on the keyboard for the Num lock key or a sign similar to a numeric keyboard.
Than use the Fn key with the key found and it work perfectly.

Keyboards are made with mechanical switches.
If most of your keys work, then I would assume that the electronics are still OK and that the issue is with 'sugar coated contacts' caused by dried/semi-dried sweet pop liquid.
The best way would be to carefully open the keyboard to get to those sugar coated contacts and clean them with some cleaning white spirit/denatured/medical alcohol.
You could alternatively lift the cover for the specific key (which normally clicks on the switch) and pour some cleaning alcohol down the center of the switch to dislodge the sugar.
IN ALL CASE, MAKE SURE THAT THE POWER IS OFF AND YOU ARE IN WELL VENTALITED AREA AWAY FROM ANY FIRE SOURCE OR SPARKS!
LET THE ALCOHOL EVAPORATE COMPLETELY BEFORE RECONNECTING!
It is possible that you have a bad keyboard. The best way to test whether this is a hardware issue or a software issue with Windows is to attach a USB keyboard and see if you have the same random results. If the keyboard is bad, which could be from something being dropped on it, a spill, or just worn out, the replacement part is readily available on eBay or other online parts sites for less than $35 and the replacement procedure is rather simple. The keyboard itself is not a fixable part.
I finally managed to remove the cover and solder the broken wire. Works fine exept the keyboard, but that is a result of old soda spill. This computer has been used with external keyboard for some months. I cleaned the keyboard with luke warm water and placed it for dry for 36 hours, but there are still som keys that dont work and Fn seems to be constantly on.
eBay is the best place for this type of thing. It's way cheaper than any laptop depot I've come across.
Here's one for your keyboard:
As far as the screen is concerned; the way to get the best deal is to search by model number of the screen and not just laptop. The same screen can be used in several different laptops. Take your screen out and look on the back of it. There will be a model number there. Enter that model number into ebay's search, making sure you check product description to be included in the search query. Any screen matching that model number will fit your laptop just perfectly and it will save you a bundle.
