Keyboard problem Hi, I connected an external keyboard to my laptop then after I removed it the original laptop keyboard doesn't work properly. For example, the key 'I' is now '5'. Also, a new light is now on, it looks like a '1' in a lock.

    Thanks for your reply. But I think that this has something to do with the settings of the keyboard or my PC, because everything was working fine before.

Cleaning your keyboard may require popping the keys off. Sometimes this may invalidate your warranty; check with the manufacturer to be certain this is something you want to do.

If your keys feel sticky or are grinding, a drop of a light machine oil, such as WD-40, placed in the center of where the key strikes the keyboard, on the hinge, or on the spring (if your key has one) should do the trick. (However, this will require removing keys from the keyboard.)

Keyboard manufacturers don’t recommend popping off keys, but it’s generally harmless if you handle the keys gently. Stick two plastic knives under opposite sides of a key and pry upward, exerting equal force on both sides. The key is guaranteed to fly off across the room, but that’s how you do the job without breaking the key or the switch. Once keys are off, they’re actually washable. Rub stains with a wet cotton swab dunked in soapy water, which does the trick for most messes. Save the alcohol for truly stubborn gunk, because it can damage the ink on the keys, and never, ever, ever use ammonia-based solvents such as Windex.

Remove keyboard 646125-001


  1. Prior to replacing your replacement keyboard for sony vaio vgn-fe880e/h, make sure to remove the keyboard and disconnect the ac adapter from your laptop.
  2. The first step to replacing your laptop keyboard is to remove the screws from the back of your vaio vgn-fe880e/h. Sometimes your laptop will have a picture of a keyboard next to the screws that need to be removed. Otherwise, see your laptop manual for details.
  3. Above the laptop keyboard for sony vaio vgn-fe880e/h, you have a cover panel. If required, remove this part to easily access your keyboard. If you have screws above your keyboard, remove those screws.
  4. Now that you have removed all the screws, you are ready to remove and then replace your new laptop keyboard.
  5. To remove the vaio vgn-fe880e/h Keyboard, take a thin object and pry the keyboard out between the keyboard and motherboard. Be careful when removing the keyboard.
  6. Now that your keyboard is loose, simply disconnect your keyboard. In order to disconnect the keyboard, pay attention to the keyboard connector and connector cable. Unlock the connector cable device and remove your laptop keyboard. Your sony vaio vgn-fe880e/h connector cable should be easy to remove by simply sliding it out.
  7. Now that your keyboard has been removed, get ready to install your new laptop keyboard. Look at the back of the keyboard. If you see any screw holes, you will have a good idea of where to place the screws back in at the bottom of the laptop.
  8. Connect your laptop keyboard for sony vaio vgn-fe880e/h to the motherboard keyboard connection slot. Secure the keyboard cable. Now turn your keyboard in place, and align the grooves on the bottom of your keyboard with your palmrest or plastic bezel. Secure your laptop keyboard in place, make sure it fits properly and is snug. Now simply place the screws back in place.

Some of my keys on the keyboard don't want to work and I was told I need to replace it. But how do I remove my current keyboard on my Compaq Presario 2100 laptop?


You need to unscrew some of the screws on the bottom of your laptop. They may be under your battery, or under little rubber covers. It is likely but not gauranteed that the right screws will have little keyboard icons next to them, if not, guess, and then try to remove the keyboard, if it doesn't come off, remove another screw...etc.

Finally, when it comes off, there will be a bus (group of wires) connecting it to the motherboard. Wiggle the bus slowly and gently out of the port on the motherboard, and then wiggle the new bus of the new keyboard into the port and screw the new keyboard in.

The drivers should be installed automatically, and it should work right away.

Keyboard no longer lights up and the sound from the fn button no longer works


Hello,

It is possible that the connection between the keyboard and the laptop is the issue. If you can figure out how to remove the keyboard, you will see it is connected to the laptop with a flat ribbon cable. Open the plastic clip that holds the flat cable (carefully!!) and then reconnect the cable. If that doesn't fix it, you may want to contact asus to get a replacement keyboard, or just plug in a usb keyboard.

Hope this helps!

When i am typing , the keys are automatic got a space even i didn't using the space bar .


Hi Friend, In this case i would recommend you to please try connecting the external keyboard to the system and check if you have the same issue with the external one as well.
If the external one works fine then I believe there is a need to reseat ( disconnect and reconnect) the keyboard.

Keyboard on laptop won't work at all none of the keys work so can't log on


Hi friend, As you have mentioned that the keys on the keyboard are not responding, so, i would like you to do one thing. Please connect any external USB keyboard to your laptop and check if it is working fine.
If it works, it means that the keyboard of the laptop needs to be changed, else, if the external does not work then there is a need to replace the motherboard and the keyboard of the system

Hp wireless keyboard not working


These keyboards only seem to work with a certain type of battery. I found the best results with a plain ALKALINE battery. I'm specifically using an Energizer, but I would guess most any Alkaline would work.

My original battery went dead after 6 months, and I replaced with a rechargeable Nickel-metal hydride (NiMh). My keyboard started behaving sluggish less than 24 hours later. I thought there was no way it was the battery, because these are the batteries that last forever in a digital camera (when Alkaline's get drained in about 1 hour in a digital camera). I tried ever fix possible, even blaming it on a new wireless router I had put in. I changed the router's wireless channels, removed cordless phones, and about everything else.

Finally I put another set of rechargeable batteries in, and everything worked great for about another 24 hours. I then decided to go back to a plain Alkaline battery, and all has been well for over a week now.

I'm sure that's not the issue for everyone, but maybe it will help some. So many of the batteries today are made for digital devices, and we had to look specifically for the Alkaline, making sure not to get a NiMh or Lithium Ion battery.

Hi,
As told if you have already put in the new keyboard and still the problem is there, it could be the problem with the motherboard connector. To pin point the problem , connect an external keyboard to the USB port of the laptop. iIf the same works good . The motherboard is the point of failure .



Thanks
