Remove the screws on the bottom of the machine - there are 3 I think one of them is below a removeable panel - the plastic base is marked with a little keyboard symbol by each screw - then pop up the tab with the mouse buttons on by gently pushing a small pin or rod in the hole from the base under this tab where the screw was. Lift keyboard at the front and slide toward you until it is released by the screen - lift the keyboard gently and disconnect the plug from the connecting cable.

Hi. You need to turn the number-lock (NumLock) off. There should be a button on the keyboard to do this. If you find the button, hold down shift and press the NumLock button. If not,click - Start > All Programs > Accessories > Accessibility > On-Screen Keyboard, and click the NumLock button. This should solve your problem. Post back results and good luck.

T42 Turns off

Hi muneeb_shauk

It sounds like you have a lose connection. I wouldn't really be most likely under the keyboard but probably under the strip that is above the keyboard. That strip would need to be removed and reseat the connections. You might need to have a shop do that if you are not comfortable with taking off that piece.

Hope that helps,

Keyboard keys

Does THIS help? It looks to be a good walkthrough. The trick is that the "scissor" type bracket for the key must be raised up while you put the key on. Some keys are easily just pressed into position, but it looks like this manual might help.

3 volume buttons on keyboard

U may have a software problem & u may have to remove and REstore the drivers for the[keyboadr] button\volume control.

Did u get a RESTORE disk\CD for your t43 pc?

2nd) your keyboard maybe dirty and may need cleaning.

they sell a small vaccum cleaner with a small brush attached to the 'sucky' part.

If not use a " smoking Pipe cleaner " [looks like the ties that keep bread from coming out of the plastic bag] but with soft material around the entire length.soke with lighter fulid,Stick the "pipe cleaner" inbetween the keypads on the keyboard . make sure that u AIR FAN the keyboard  V E R Y   G O O D   AND MAKE SURE THAT THE power is off before u do this.
