Keys dont work.alternative way to change brightness?

I spilled water on my keyboard and thankfully my laptop still works. But, my g, h, apostrophe, and up arrow keys dont work. I got a keyboard remapper for my g and h keys. But my up arrow doesnt work. I dimmed my screen w. my down arrow key + fn and now I cant make it brighter (because i dont have a functional up arrow). I tried the keyboard remapper for it but it doesnt work because its (fn + up arrow) to make it brighter.

Anyone know how to change the brightness through any special software?

Thanks!

Yes you can go into your display properties and look in the settings tab and look for advanced click that and open color tab or the overlay tab, color tab should get your brightness turned up, And if you can't see you can go into your bios and adjust your brightness from there and get it back to where you can see it if you can't write me back here so we can try another method. Ok I hope that helps you out somewhat, Oh yeah you can also hook up an external key board into your usb connections and you should be able to work everything from that too.

    I am sorry I thought you had Xp my mistake and sorry again, Ok with vista you will see a little blue screen its kinda crooked, when you roll your mouse over it, It will say Intel (R) Graphic media Accelerator Driver for Mobile, Now right click it and open, choose Graphics Properties>Color Correction> Now you can see Gamma,brightness,contrast, you can set the brightness there I sure hope this help you out and let me know if you can't get it. Thanks again

    Oh yeah the little blue screen is at the bottom right of your screen.

  • bear001 Jan 19, 2008

    Do u see it in you control panel ? and for the other not color management try just the color tab if you have one. If you can't find it still let me know maybe the drivers got deleted . U should also be able to brighten it up in you bios.

My arrow keys aren't working, only the FN function even when not being pressed


Either you have a stuck key, or your keyboard is shorted maybe due to liquid being spilled into it. Lightly tap the affected keys to unstuck it, or put the laptop in a well-ventilated area if liquid was spilled to let it dry.

Number lock key


1. Please tap the NumLock key many times and see if it responds to the tap,

2. Probably your keyboard is in "Alt Fn" mode, so please try to hold the Fn key and tap the Fn key (I prefer to tap the left arrow and right arrow) and see if the keyboard is working properly.

3. Probably your keyboard is failed. It happens, even there is no spill accident. In this case, you need to replace the entire keyboard.

Right arrow key not working


Did you spill anything on the keyboard?

You may need a replacement keyboard. They aren't that expensive and not that hard to replace.

I have spilled water on my laptot and the keyboard doesn't work anymore. I have connected an external keyboard now however, I cant switch on the wireless capability. Does anyone know a way to do t


Hello,

There may be a switch on the side of the laptop that turns the wireless on and off. Also try pressing and holding the fn key and pressing and releasing f1 or f2. The water spill may have killed the wireless card also. If you still can't get it working, then purchase an inexpensive usb wireless adapter. This will plug into an available usb port and will give you wireles capabilities. You will need to replace the keyboard as well as it was obviously damaged by the spill. Check on ebay, or contact the manufacturer for a replacement.

Hope this helps!

Hi, "I suggest that you try reconfiguring the way the Keyboard functions. Click on the Start button, in the [Start Search Window] type: keyboards; the "Keyboard" will appear in the shortcut menu. Next, select to open, make all the changes to your specifications, "Apply and OK" all changes. After you are finished, Restart the Computer. If this helped; let me know by giving a "helpful rating," thanks.

Some keys on my laptop dont work


Trying a desktop keyboard is useful for determining if it is a keyboard problem or a software problem. This usualy happens if some liquid has gotten into the keyboard, but you said thats not possible. Try to boot into bios, the first screen that pops up when you boot, on a toshiba it is usually pressing F1 or Del. then if your Arrow keys don't work there, you need a new keyboard.

Spilled water on keyboard. a few keys don't work


If this problem occurred recently you might still be able to save the keyboard. However, it is a painstaking method of popping out each of the keys that are not working and cleaning them off (preferably with some contact cleaner) and making sure that there is no corrosion trying to form due to the moisture. Be careful when prying up some keys as some keyboards (especially laptop keyboards) are hard to put back if you don't have the right tools or the know how. I suggest looking up keyboard removal techniques based on the brand of your keyboard/laptop.
Good luck...

The keys have clogged up and all the keys dont work becouse water has gone iside any solutions


Replacement.

That is the ONLY solution for keyboards that have ANY kind of liquid spilled into them.

I can replace the keyboard and check the inside of the computer for additional damage that may have occurred because of the spill.

Symbols gone crazy


The keyboard appears to be defective, but if you replace it and you still have issues, then the matrixing chip on the motherboard is bad and you will have to change the motherboard as well. Let me know, and vote.
