Hello,

this is a sign that you need to replace your laptop keyboard. The keyboard is faulty and you need to change the keyboard. You also have an option of using an external usb keyboard.

To use the on screen key board, follow the steps below:

  1. Go to "Start menu"
  2. Scroll to "Accessories" and click it
  3. Scroll to "Ease of Access" and click it
  4. Then you will see On-screen keyboard.
Or, you can click your "Start menu", look at the last option where you will find "Search" type 'On-screen Keyboard" and press enter, it will automatically take you to the program.

Good luck.

For that you need to do some cleaning of key board pull key which are not working then clean dust from it and reattach it then it works.
For On screen key board go to start menu ->All programs ->accessories->accessibility->On screen key board.
Then click on it then it stay open.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

My lenova g550 hard disc indicator light won't turn opn. the screen is black


Have you made any modifications to the computer lately? (Taken it apart ect?) I had a similar issue with mine. There was a short in the keyboard. I ordered and installed a new keyboard and it has booted up fine ever since.

Try something as simple as checking the keyboard connection, this will require taking the laptop apart though.

My acer ao532h the key enter botton not work


SOLUTION_1
Plug in a USB keyboard and try that. If the enter key opn that works then most likely your keyboard needs to be replaced. if it does not then it's a possible motherboard issue
SOLUTION_2you don't need key if you do system recovery.It will do a factory restore so you lose all your personal data. Backup everything important.

Some keys on my laptop dont work


Trying a desktop keyboard is useful for determining if it is a keyboard problem or a software problem. This usualy happens if some liquid has gotten into the keyboard, but you said thats not possible. Try to boot into bios, the first screen that pops up when you boot, on a toshiba it is usually pressing F1 or Del. then if your Arrow keys don't work there, you need a new keyboard.

My son touched my keyboard.....now a lot of the letters dont work......HELP!!


as i understand a few letteers are not working on the keyboard . If the remaining keys are working good then shut down the computer then when you turn the system back on keep on tapping the F8 key on the keyboard till u see the option advanced boot options . On that screen select safe mode using the arrow keys on the keyboard . This would load the system to a different screen where the icons would be bigger in size , open a note pad and try typing the keys ,if its working then its a OS issue else its a issue with the keyboard. what u could also try is reseating the keyboard .If no go , replace keyboard by contacting the manufacturer

THE KB BOARD NEEDS TO BE SERVICED, BY REMOVING THE SCREWS OR SNAP CLIPS THAT HOLD THE KB TOGETHER, CLEAN THE CURCIUT BOARD OR PLASTIC FILM WITH SOME ACOLAHOL AND LENT FREE TOWEL,
USE A CAN OF COMPRESSED AIR TO REMOVE THE DIRT FROM THE KEY SWITCHS.
PUT IT BACK TOGETHER,

GO INGO CONTROL PANEL OPEN DEVICE MANAGER, GO DOWN TO KEYBOARD AND CHECK FOR ANY TYPE OF UPDATES OR AND CHANGES TO THE PROGRAM.

IF YOU CAN FIND THE KEYBOARD TEST THAN TEST THE KEYBOARD TO MAKE SURE ALL KEYS ARE WORKING PROPERLY.

Some are keys not working...


Check your packaging that came with the keyboard. If it has a warranty there should be information in it. Cleaning it would have been my first action, but since that didnt work it must be a problem inside the keyboard itself. If all else fails try and research on the keyboards manufacturer website for warranty information.

When the cover is lowered for an extended period, and then


when you close the lid it will hibernate, pressing any key does not work, you normally have to press the power button and it will power back up and show the screen and the running programmes, i think you are getting confused with sleep mode where the pc can wake opn keyboard.
