How to replace the keybord on an advent 9517 laptop


Advent laptops are manufactured by DSG International, which owns the names to other name-brand computers such as Acer and Hewlett-Packard.
The Advent laptop keyboard has integrated mouse touch-pad functions that allow you to move the mouse around the screen with your fingers.
Function keys at the top of the board contain alternate ways to exit and enter software applications.

Function Keys
The Advent laptop keyboards function keys are "hot keys" that act as shortcuts to applications and functions on the computer. The function keys sometimes don't work and won't carry out the function assigned to the key. This problem is considered a hardware malfunction, and the solution is to replace the keyboard or use a universal serial bus (USB) keyboard for the laptop. b> Malfunctioning Keys b> Advent keyboards are made of thin plastic. Striking the keys too hard will cause the keys to break or stick awkwardly in the housing unit that supports the keyboard. When these keys get stuck in the housing unit, a pin tool can easily set the keys back on track. If there are too many keys that get stuck or broken, you can purchase a replacement Advent keyboard and have it installed. b> Mouse Problems b> The mouse is located at the bottom of the Advent keyboard but is connected to the keyboard data strip that sends information through the keyboard unit to move the mouse on the screen. If the mouse malfunctions, check the connector under the keyboard to see if it is loose. A loose connector can cause the mouse or other keys not to function on the laptop. b> Electrical Shortage b> An electrical shortage can cause an Advent keyboard not to work properly. A shortage is when the main board of the laptop is not getting the voltage needed to efficiently operate the computer. When this happens, certain devices underperform or become inoperable. Check to see if your power supply is extremely hot or if your system heats up around the keyboard. If so, replace the electrical adapter. b> Wire Damage From Keystrokes b> The wire that is responsible for the liquid crystal display (LCD) on the Advent laptop extends from under the middle of the keyboard to the LCD display unit. This wire is unprotected and can be damaged from striking the keys over the wire. When this happens, the display will not show the correct colors or the screen will go black. To eliminate this problem, purchase a keyboard cover that fits the keys to relieve the pressure between the keyboard and video cable. b> Keyboard Drivers b> Problems have been reported with upgrades from Windows Vista to Windows 7. Windows 7 will not recognize the system drivers that operate the Advent keyboard. To get the keyboard to work, you must load the old drivers in Windows 7 Safe mode, which is used anytime there is a hardware or software discrepancy. Advent keyboard drivers can be loaded from the original restore CD, which is included with the system at the time of purchase.

Keyboard on Inspiron Mini 10 is not working right. Had chocolate spilled on it. How do I clean it.


Because laptops are portable, people tend to eat and drink over them. They lay the laptops on soiled surfaces and stuff them in dirty book bags. With all of the wear, tear and abuse that a laptop sustains, it's no wonder that the keyboard can become quite dirty. When a keyboard becomes dirty, often times the actual keys won't work. It is commonplace to find dirt, debris and food under the keys of a laptop computer. This causes the keys to not engage properly, rendering them useless.

1.Run a duster over the keys of your Dell laptop. This will remove any dust or small bits of debris that are causing your laptop keys to get stuck and not work. Test your keys once you have dusted them.

2.Spray the laptop keyboard with condensed air. Hold the air nozzle (you will often insert a small plastic tube into the nozzle) about 4 inches from the keyboard. Spray liberally, and use a back-and-forth motion while you work. This will remove most pieces of debris that may be stuck under the keys. Test the keys to see if they now work.

3.Place the tip of your flat-head screwdriver underneath the right-hand side of the key that is not working. Lift up gently and the key will pop off.

4.Dip the tip of your Q-tip into the rubbing alcohol and rub around the area where the key meets the keyboard. This will remove any final bits of dirt and debris. Allow the area to air dry. Repeat on as many keys as needed.

5.Place the loose key directly over the space where it belongs. Note the small piece of rubber. Hold the center of the key directly above the rubber piece and press down. When you hear a small clicking sound, the key is secure.

Lenovo s1o number lock stuck. i am unable to use keyboard. FN key non responsive. any suggestions are appreciated!


Hello

If the key is physically stuck in the "down" or pressed postion, the key may have become disconnected from the mechanism underneath that returns it to the "up" position.

All keys on all keyboards can be removed. This includes laptops. On laptops, the keys typically have less travel (up and down) than a desktop keyboard and the key attaches to the keyboard differently.

In either case, use a small screwdriver or your fingernail and gently lift up on the key - to return it to the "up" position. When in that position, see if the rest of the keyboard works.

If it does, you can simply lift up on the key and remove it from the keyboard. The support that is underneath will either be removed with the key or will remain on the keyboard.

Re-attaching the key involves aligning the key with the ends of the support bracket and snapping it back into place. (Most keyboards have a white plastic structure that forms a X on 2 sides - allowing the key to move up and down.)

With the key removed, look at the edges of the surrounding keys to get an idea of how it attaches, align the parts and press it back into place.

Nothing happens when I hit the ''enter'' key on my keyboard - can you help? I use a laptop with an external keyboard - the enter key on the actual laptop works as it should - but for some reason the enter...


If it is still dormant after you power everything down, you probably have not mistakenly hit something. There may be something physically wrong with the key. Try the keyboard on another computer. If the enter key works reliably there, you have quite a puzzle. But if it fails there as well, see whether the enter key moves as smoothly as the other keys. If it is a larger key, it may have an "equlaizer bar" to make it move smoothly that may have become detached. In that case, look at similar keys to figure out how to reassemble it properly. Also look for dirt of any kind under it or between it and nearby keys.

Loose key


Is only the cap loose, but you can still operate that key?

On most laptop keyboards, the letters are caps on the keyboard button. They are held in place by small plastic tabs on the keyboard structure. The cap snaps in place and is held by the tabs. If the tabs are broken, the cap stays loose.

Some keyboards use a small slider that moves as you depress the key, which means you can't glue it.

Laptop keyboards are replaceable and can be purchased cheaply on ebay or some repair sites.
