With the keyboard upplugged from the PC.
You can use a flat tip screw driver & gently pry the s key up working your way around the key untill it pops off. clean the surface with a lightly soapy (not dripping) rag. Pop the key back on after it's dry. If the s key still does not function I suggest you get another keyboard. You can also try this. Click the link.

    Sorry I missed the part ( You have a Notebook ). The virtual keyboard will work for you but you'll have to have it serviced. ( the notebooks keyboards circuit layout will have to be replaced. Suggest you use a pro to replace the part.

My laptop touchpad is not working dell inspiron n5010


you will have to reinstall the drivers and the sofware in your Dell. I think since the touch pad is not working if you use the cursor keys and proceed to the control panel and try to restore the laptop, then if this will reset to an earlier date, then it will solve the issue.
try this out and check to reinstall drivers. hope this helps. Good day

New netbook. Attempting set-up. Keyboard keys don't work. Nothing gets typed in. Just hear a click.


Disable the Numlock key and check if the same issue persists. You can reinstall the Keyboard Driver to resolve the issue. Uninstall the Keyboard Driver from the Device Manager and restart the Computer. The Computer will reinstall the Keyboard Driver when you restart the Computer automatically.

My HP laptop keys are not being recognized. I have rebooted many times. I'm not sure if I pressed a sequence of keys to make this happen or not. Please help. I am having to use voice recognition to type...


Try using a USB or PS2 external keyboard to see if that works. If it does, then there is a problem with the keyboard on the laptop. I would then try reinstalling the driver for the keyboard to see if that helps. You would go into Device Manager to reinstall the driver. Let me know if this helps you.

Try reinstalling the driver for the keyboard. If that doesn't work try the keyboard on another computer. If the same thing happens you probably have a faulty keyboard and will need to replace it. If not, check for a more updated version of the driver at the manufacturers website.

THe keyboard has gone beserk... the up and down keys keep pressinf themselves.. also sometimes some keys just stop working... please help


your problem may have different causes:

1. if your keyboard is old, you may want to spend either money, on a new keyboard, or time, cleaning your keyboard as you may have some kung underneith causing the keys to stick.

2. do try another key board and see if that corrects the issue (get rid of the current problem keyboard). try the keyboard on another computer and see it works fine. if it does your problem may be with the connector on the motherboard, you may have to get usb keyboard or you may have to replaced your motherboard.

3. if your keyboard is a special new keyboard you may have to look for updated drivers for it instead of using the drivers that come with the operating system.. look into the keyboard manufacturer's website for updated drivers..

4. go to control pannel> keyboards and look into the hardware tab and look for properties, make sure the status of the device is "working properly" if not reinstall or updated drivers.

5. check your possible bios updates: if your keyboard is a ps/2 (mini 6 pin din). look for for updates for your bios on motherboard manufacturer website.

post more details of your device and issues and we'll try to help.
