    many thanks for your advice Hollyecho!(love that name). this problem with laptops appears to be very common, also very annoying, as my guarantee has only ran out 2 months ago!



    I did try cleaning, but it is more of a fault with the actual workings of the horrid thing!



    if any other members are totally stuck, here is what i am currently doing, but beleive me, it really slows down the typing process! ... to use the on-screen keyboard...



    1. start

    2. accessibility options

    3.click on "on- screen keyboard"

    4. ensure curser is flashing wherever you require letter

    5. click arrow over required letter on-screen.



    It is by no means ideal, but better than having a useless laptop lying around! what extortionately expensive things these are, just to get 14months useage of!!!



    all the best

    sack-o-spuds!

You can try to remap the key to other functional keys which you seldom use eg. home/ pg up/ pg down

Try google for KeyTweak and this nifty software would do the trick...
I'm currently trying to cope with a nonfunctioning "L" key..

By the way Hollyecho, could u give me some guide on how to dismantle a sony vaio vgn-fe15gp?

Depending on the laptop, (is this a laptop?), this is mostly caused my dust, dirt, or moisture. Try a dry soft brush, a ladys makeup brush works really well, then using canned air to blow out the keys. If this is a desktop - new keyboards are only about 10 dollars, I would just buy a new one.

    You can replace keyboards on laptops also, you can get them on ebay, or from your laptop manufacture. I have replaced 4 or 5 this past year, and some are very easy - to the bazzarly complicated depending on your model, but, if you like I could send instruction if you give me the make and model of your laptop.

How do I turn on my touch pad on an Asus lap top?


Please try the Fn+F6 or Fn+F8 key combinations. If you look at the Function keys in the keyboard, they will have symbols on them in Blue color, the same color as the Fn key. Find the symbol that resembles a touchpad like a mouse/box with finger , then hold down the Fn key and press that Function key, ie, F6 or F7 or F8. This will enable/disable the touchpad.

What function do the f1, f2, f3, f4, f5, f6, f7,...keys serve on an ASUS?


The function keys use depends on the computer. Usually, manufacturers have the keys marked with some picture that reveals what each is used for. Examine the keyboard. You can also press each key and see what happens. WARNING: A key may disable some functionality of the computer. So before you start pressing the Function keys, read the manual.

Hi, am ganesh functions keys


If those are the only keys on the key board that are not responding, I would try to
1. boot in safe mode and check response. If you have other keys on the laptop that are not working,
2. I would boot operating system from a flash drive and check

and if both still are not working for you
3.try an external key board

Last replace the key board

Hope this helps

I need to know what the keys f1-f12 keys usage.


The uses for the function (f1-f12) keys varies based on which program you have open at the time. Different programs use them for different things.

However, your computer also has some default uses for these keys when combined with pressing the fn (function) key.

fn + f1 locks computer

fn + f2 changes our power use profile

fn + f3 puts the computer to sleep

fn + f4 puts the computer into hibernation mode

fn + f5 changes the display/output mode

fn + f6 decreases the screen brightness

fn + f7 increases the screen brightness

fn + f8 enables/disables wireless connections

fn + f9 enables/disables the touch pad

fn + f10 turns the cursor overlay on/off

fn + f11 turns the numeric overlay on/off

fn + f12 turns scroll lock on/off
