Asus keys problem

I am using asus eee pc and my problem is semi colon characters started to appear whenever i press or won't press any other keys.
the netbook was never been dropped. it is still in good condition except with the annoying semi colons persistently appearing, which gives me a difficulty
to type. In addition, on the outer surface there is no indication that a key or keys was/were struck. Thanks for the advance help!

Move your hands in a swiping motion from left to right all around the keyboard, especially where the semi-colon key is. You want to make sure that no keys are sticking.

If it keeps happening then that means the keyboard is faulty and would need to be replaced.

How can i recover my eee pc asus notebook to factory settings


Restart your computer and hit "F2" as the black screen appears. This black screen only appears for a short time, so pay attention closely.

Use the right-arrow key until you see the "Advanced" option.

Select "OS Installation" by scrolling through the options with the down-arrow key on the computer keyboard.

Change the option from "Finished" to "Start" by using the "+" key.

Go to the "Exit" tab by using the right-arrow key. Do this step while making sure that "Exit & Save Changes" is selected as well, then press "Enter," or "OK," to give administrative permission to perform the request.

Press the "F9" key whenever the EeePC starts back up, then select "Restore Factory Settings" from the list of options.

Give confirmation for proceeding with the Factory Restore by clicking "OK" and "Enter." Your EeePC will be taken through the process for installing a fresh image on your machine.

hope this helps

Your numlock is turned on. There is more than one way to turn it off.Find a USB keyboard, and plug it in. Then push the numlock key on the USB keyboard to turn it off.OR, if you don't have access to one of those, hold down the fn key (lower left hand corner of the keyboard) and press the key with numlock or number lock written on or near it.

My laptop keyboard not working normally, keys not display the keys i want to type, display the other character on the keyboard...my laptop model ASUS eee PC 1001


Hello,

This is because you have Num Lk activated.
To deactivate, hold down the Fn key and press NumLk (it's the same key as insert)

Now you will have the normal characters when typing.

Where is the simi colon key?


Semi colon is usually on the right side of L key.
May not be at the same position on all keyboards.
semi colon looks like this : (two dots)
colon looks like this ; (a dot above a coma)
To type a semi colon, you have to hold down the Shift key while you press the semi-colon key.
Good luck

My Asus Eee PC 701 SD has a stuck control key.


Shut it down (not hibernate), remove power supply and remove battery. Wait 30 seconds before reinserting battery. Boot the system.

In this doesn't solve the issue, your keyboard might be dirty. In that case you should clean it. Be careful if you choose to use a vacuum cleaner that you take measures to prevent your keys from getting into the vacuum cleaner.

Eee 900A goes through fast start then blacks out


Must be common problem. Linux is the operating system

yes you just lost linux, it needs re-doing but with an external CD ROM drive unless it has a partition
for recovery in which either F10 key will do it or another key check the manual for RECOVERY of operating system its not a big problme but it takes few hours to solve
