    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.

Keyboard doesn't work


To determine if the motherboard is faulty, connect an USB keyboard to your laptop an see if the keyboard works properly. If so then the laptop keyboard may only need the keyboard connector unplugged and then plugged back onto the motherboard.

Compaq CQ60 some keys not working


The keyboard maybe faulty.
Connect an external keyboard to youe laptop and if all the key work on this keyboard then most like the laptop keyboard is faulty.
If this external keyboard also malfunctions then the keyboard controller chip on the laptop motherboard is faulty and it would not be worth repairing as this is an old model laptop.

Keyboard not working


Do you have a spare USB keyboard you could try using? If an external keyboard works just fine - but the actual keyboard on the laptop does not respond at all - it is likely that the keyboard has failed.

If you are comfortable taking your laptop apart, you can try to unplug the keyboard and plug it back into the connection point on the laptop. DO NOT TRY THIS UNLESS YOU ARE 100% COMFORTABLE WITH REMOVING THE LAPTOP KEYBOARD.

If you can get the keyboard to work by reseating the connection then that is awesome! However, the problem with laptop keyboards is that there isn't a solid way to tell if the keyboard is bad, or if the motherboard connection for the keyboard is bad. The only way to know for sure is to pay to have the keyboard replaced. If that fixes it, then that is great! But - if paying to get the keyboard replaced doesn't fix the computer, then you will be looking at an expensive motherboard repair.

If an external USB keyboard does work, it may be a temporary solution until you are ready to have a certified technician replace the built in keyboard.

My two year old spilled water on toshiba laptop which seeped into motherboard. keyboard isnt working...can changing it help solve the problem because when we connect external keyboard while disabling...


Good thing only the keyboard is not working! To answer your question, yes. Changing your laptop's keyboard should fix it. Letting it dry for a couple of days (depends on how wet it go) MIGHT also work. Well, if it doesn't work, just continue with your plan to change the keyboard.

Thanks for using Fixya.

The keyboard is not working


Hi,

Connect an external USB keyboard, if there's no problems with it then remove your laptop's keyboard. First: Disconnect the ribbon connection and reconnect again
Second: If that doesn't fix the problem
Third: Buy a replacement
If the external USB Keyboard doesn't work you may have some software issues

Some key of my sony laptop is not working properly ,p is replacing theprevious word.backspace & delete key is not working.


if this just happened, it may have to turn off the laptop, remove the battery and adapter, then press and hold the power button for about 10 secs to discharge residual power, then reconnect the power sources and test the keyboard again. If this did not work, confirm if an external keyboard is working. If no issues with an external keyboard, you may try to remove and reconnect the keyboard cable connection to the motherboard, make sure none of the keys are stuck, and if nothing works, you may have to get a replacement for it.

Problem with laptop key board i am not getting original character


It sounds like there is a connection problem,
if you are still on the warrenty call up HP and see what they say.
if your not then your probably going to have to find a diagram and do it yourself,
if your not a trained system tech-ie i would advise going to a computer repair shop which will be expensive but your laptop is useless with this consistant problem.

It might just be a driver issue, i would look into seeing if your drivers all up to date, and disinstall and reinstall your keyboard which is fairly easy.
