Question about ASUS Eee PC 900 Notebook

1 Answer

I am using a relatively new Asus EEE notebook computer. After about 10 days of relatively heavy usage the key board has started to suddenly stop working. Has no functionality on any of the function, number, or letter keys. So far rebooting has succeeded in enabling the keyboard again but it has now failed three times in one morning of work. Any tips?

    I think you are right. The function key is in close proximity to the lower left had part of the keyboard and it seems this happens when I am typing fast and using this part of the keyboard.

    Next question is, do you have any idea what the combination of keys is that locks the key board? And, more importantly, what the combination is the enables the key board again?

    Yes it was. I still haven't figured out what hot key is causing the problem but I am convinced that it is the cause of the problem and it never would have occurred to me that this was what was wrong.

Yeah ...probably it has a hot key that disable the keyboard ...and you have a particularity in your writing or usage that fits those keys .....probably it is a group of 2 or more letters or ..something like a fn and a function ...or a letter ..and this is the reason why do not worry ..and each time it happens just reboot cause on reboot the keyboard is seen again as a part of the start up process ..

    I was actually looking for the second part right now and I dont see to get much idea is to see the follow this instruction cause I thing you are using some kinda linux on it ..
    if you use xp...just goto all programs ..accessories accessibility and on screen keyboard ....see if it maps the double functions on the keys...
    I will see if I find a list ..but I didnt find any ...if you have the manual take a look in it ...there should be all there ....anyway will always be restored by restart ..

Computer not responding at all

If it burnt a new HDD then the problem could lie somewhere on the mobo. If it's still under warranty, i'd suggest RMA. Otherwise, you will have to take it back to the computer repair shop and listen to their suggestions.

Check the country code for the keyboard. Sounds like incorrect codes.

Can you remove and clean underneath? Try a LITTLE silicon spray? If you have cleaned it, I would say your keyboard/touch pad are going bad. Are you using a external mouse?

Hi there,

You do not say how long you have had the computer. If it is about 3days old, you will find that Microsoft Office will stop working, you only get a 90 day lisence with a new computer. To get a product key, you will have to purchase a legal copy of Microsoft Office, which will give you a lisence that is permanent.

Have a good day
