Two keys don't work

Shift and enter are two heavily used keys amd wear faster than other keys. On some keyboards keys can be pried up to check the connection. Generally these items have become disposable these days and you can pick up wireless keyboards for less than $20

@ key is not working when i press the shift key and @ its only giving me #2

Then your shift key may be faulty, try using the shift key on both sides of the keyboard to do this. If it still doesn't work then it means that your shift keys are fine its just the secondary functing of the "2" key that is faulty.

Shift key not working

You have 2 Shift keys on the keyboard. If the other shift key is working then the shift key that is not working is defective. You should consider replacing the keyboard on your laptop. There is no setting on Windows that can disable the shift key.

**Note : If both Shift keys are not working, Try to check if sticky keys feature on windows is on. Sticky keys should be disabled. To disable sticky keys, Click on start and Go into control panel > Accessibility Options, and under keyboard there is sticky keys. Remove the tick and click apply and OK.


**If "Use Sticky Keys" is unchecked, that means sticky keys is disabled.

Keys qweruiop not working on startup (first 15 minutes or so) on physical keyboard on HP G60-533CL Notebook PC running Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit). Keyboard Driver Standard 101/102-Key or Microsoft...

Take the computer to a qualified technician, who can replace the keyboard, as the least-expensive "try" at trouble-shooting.

Since a keyboard transmits "codes" to the motherboard,
e.g., left-shift-has-been-pressed, and left-shift-has-been-released,
and the motherboard interprets those codes, it is NOT likely that
the motherboard is misinterpreting the codes, especially given that
the "bad' letters are in a straight line on your keyboard.

Find an external USB keyboard, and plug it in.
If it works correctly in the first 15 minutes, then the problem is NOT the motherboard.

Can't type anything without weird things happening the \'p\' prints,

hi, check that Sticky-keys arent turned on.

to toggle Sticky-keys on and off, press the shift key 5 times fast, then either Disable the sticky-keys tickbox, or click Settings for more configuration settings.

when sticky-keys are enabled, you can press shift and release, and the shift key is still enabled. this also goes for Alt, and CTRL.

so if it is enabled, pressing P will attempt to be Ctrl-P - which is print.

My number keys arent working because i was hold shift for more than eight seconds the a message popped up then i clicked ok

Try holding down the shift key again for 8 seconds and read the window to cancel the filter keys.

As for your numbers not working, there is a NumLock [number lock] key on your keyboard. Try hitting that and see if your numbers work.

Hope this helps.

Shift key has to be pressed firmly to work.

If there were more that one key that has failed it would indicate that you have a keyboard controller chip that has failed or that the connector from the keyboard to the motherboard is not making proper contact. You may get that key to work by pressing that key very firmly.

You may be able to fix the faulty key by removing that key and spraying the faulty key contact with electronic spray cleaner whilst pressing the key pad several times. It may not work because it may be sealed and the cleaning fluid may not be able to penetrate the key contacts.

Then the only thing to do is to buy and fit a new keyboard from the manufacrurer.,
