Hi, If the Keyboard problems are there, that is while keying in any character to the System, any key is not working & u are not able to work on any keys the best recomendation will be to take your laptop to the nearest Service Center & get the Keyboard replaced.

Using Acer keyboard and Acer Veriton desktop. Keyboard misses out letters I type and doesn't seem able to keep up with me when I am typing. Hence, trying to do a typing test will result in a decent speed...


Try connecting the keyboard to a different laptop.
If the "lag" and the "missing" letters still occur,
the keyboard is the problem.

If not, try a different keyboard with your computer, to see if this "other" keyboard has the same problem. If so, then your computer, not your keyboard, is the problem.

Arrow key problem


I think you are using multimedia enabled keyboard. So check it properly, there must be some software utility installed on your system for this keyboard, use that, as it seems that the keys are fixed as shortcuts for those programs. So remove those.

Keyboard is locked


Does the problem occur outside of the operating system? For example, can you use the keyboard to enter the BIOS on boot up or if you are using Microsoft Windows, can you press F8 on the keyboard thereby causing the Microsoft Windows Boot Menu to appear?

If the keyboard does not function outside of the operating system, the problem is a hardware problem. If that is the case, you may need to reseat the keyboard cable on the motherboard. Maybe the keyboard cable has come loose.

If the problem is hardware related and reseating the cable does not fix the problem, you may need to replace the keyboard.

Keyboard doesnt work on my repaired emachine with win xp


Could be a couple of things.

First, try connecting another keyboard using the same type of connection as your keyboard. (PS2, or USB). If that one works in the machine; then it's more then likely that there is a problem with your keyboard.

If it doesn't work, it may be a problem with the system itself or possibly a software problem. To test a keyboard is very simple and this test is integrated in most of the BIOS startup systems today. Simply press more than 7 keys right when you turn your power on to the system. If it beeps after a few seconds of holding or brings up a keyboard error, then the keyboard is communicating with the system. If there's a keyboard error that actually states that there is no keyboard present; then there is a problem.

I hope this helps you narrow it down. If it's not the keyboard itself, and you can't get any keyboards to work, I'd have that shop take another look at what they did.

Computer keyboard.


The problem does not lie in your keyboard, but rather the keyboard layout settings. Go to control panel, keyboard options and select the standard US settings.
