Re: How to?

On the back of the laptop, You will find a slot which is round in shape, in it the end slot of the keyboard will fit only one not try to force it in or you might end up breaking it up.

Try to do it:

1. Turn off the computer.

2. Unplug the AC adapter.

3. Take out the battery.

4. Hold the power button to the right for 30 seconds.

5. Put the battery back in.

6. Plug the AC adapter back in.

7. Turn it on.

See if it works. If it works, Congratulations! If nothing happens, contact your service provider about it. Thank you!

Couple of drops of water splashed on keyboard....softly ran paper towel across all keys and now some of the function keys are messed up. Any way to restore just keyboard to factory default. We don't...

This is not a software related issue wherein we can have it resolved by doing system restore. This is a physical defect on the keyboard which means that it may need replacement. But before you bring it to a service center, try to blow dry your keyboard first. But be careful not to focus you blow dryer too much on the keyboard as they are made of plastic. It might melt then. Keep it in a distance. Do not use the computer, or even try to turn it on for at leave 48 hours. Check if it works, then that means you are able to dry it. If it does not, then it's due for a keyboard replacement.

Mac laptop keys are not showing letters but symbols and delete key not working. How do I unlock this problem?


There could be a couple of possibilities :-

1. Faulty keypad
2. IC on the main board

Faulty keyboard is more often a problem. Even though there is no dust and dirt, faulty keyboard may result in all the above said symptoms.If you press a letter key, a symbol might be there. If you press delete key, it might not work. The best option what i follow in my shop is replacement of keyboard. There are certain days when i only replace few keys, but more often if this is a problem with more than 5 keys or with all the keys on the notebook, better to go for a new keyboard.For your laptop, always prefer hard keys as those are more durable than the soft keys.

IC on the notebook is again one of the reasons. This is usually a problem with old laptops, such as 5 to 7 years old. New laptops generally do not have this problem. If laptop IC is at fault, soldering is required to get it fixed.It needs a tech to confirm the faulty IC on the mainboard and then followed by replacement.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

No, noone can fix that, the keyboard is faulty - it happens. Since you just bought it you should return it and have the keyboard replaced.

Oh, I'd say it's just a driver glitch. Uninstall the keyboard drivers from the device manager, then reboot. The machine will find the keyboard and reinstall the drivers. This should fix it, if not, get back to me, and we'll try something else.

Keyboard doesn't work

Ok, well it is probalby going to be one of two things. and seeing that you did not mentin that the computer dose not start up and boot fully then I am going to narrow it down to one. Chances are she broke the keyboard or shook the cable loose. when you have time and internet access to be able to talk to me on here and have me walk you through removing the keyboard to check it let me know. I am able to talk with you 24/7 just give me a couple of hours of notice so I can keep my attention on your situation.
