If you've spilt tea down your laptop you could have shorted something out.

You could try a new keyboard, or take out your old one and see if you can clean it up a bit, and try and clean the tea from inside.

Screen went almost dark after cat walked across keyboard


Laptop keyboards have a function key that changes the brightness level. You access this by using the FN key on the bottom of the keyboard along with the brightness level, possibly the F8 key. There should be icons on the 'F' keys to show which key will increase the brightness on the display.

I hope you find this information helpful.

My cat walked across my laptop and now I have lights on I don't think were there before and can't figure out what they mean. On the top of the keyboard there is a red light that keeps blinking on the far...


I can definitely help you but I need to know at least what the model of the laptop is. It is a gateway laptop right? it should have the model number on the bottom of the laptop. Are you using it now? I'd say the \'c\' sounds like caps lock but that doesn't appear to be the issue since you are typing in normal characters...

The cat definitely turned on a few things, the keys have multiple functions... hard to say what is what without the model of the laptop, but you should have a FUNCTION key or FN key... and then the keys themselves (such as KJHLKS) have multiple functions, usually written in the same color as the FN key... You can just play around with them and see what turns on what..

Let me know the model and I can be more specific,

Thanks

My kitten walked across my keyboard and now my sound is gone, how can I undo.


Make sure that the speakers are not muted under the system tray settings. Look at the speaker icon in the system tray (near the computer time). Double click on it to brong the the sound and volume settings. Then make sure it is not muted.

Reset the BIOS to its default settings then restore the Computer to the original factory settings by performing System Recovery using the OEM Recovery Discs set provided by the manufacturer.This will help you decide whether the issue is related to the keyboard or due to inappropriate drivers or utilities.

Letter keys are stuck on numbers don't know how to change them bo


Hold the "Fn" key down while pressing "F9" key, subtitled "Padlock" (!!) - is equivalent to NUM LOCK nomenclature used on most computers. Note - Repeating above resets number pad to ON.

If that doesn't work for you something is malfunctioning as far as I know.
