Key problem sony vaio key board


I've had similar problems and it turns out to be a defective keyboard. You could try blowing out the keyboard with a can of air to see if that helps. Also turn pc off before blowing and turn laptop upside down to see if anything like a staple comes out. Hope this helps. Henry

My keyboard is not responding to all characters when I type and I have to continually press some keys to get a result


Sometimes you may find certain keys of your laptop keyboard not working properly. You type those keys but there is no output on the screen or you need to press these keys firmly to get a result. You face this problem if you accidentally spill any liquid substance on your keyboard, or due to dust accumulating on the inside of the keys, pressing certain keys really hard while playing games or even due to absence of lubrication. Therefore you are suppose to maintain your laptop keyboard by cleaning and lubricating it regularly.
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. To start with, take out each key out from the laptop keyboard. Use a small screwdriver to carefully pry each key by making it loose. As they become loose, keys will simply pop off. Also, take out the rubber piece present under every key. Keep the keys and rubber pieces in different containers.
  2. Once you have removed all keys from the keyboard, you will have to clean the keyboard from the inside. Use cotton swabs or ear bubs and slightly dip them in water. Avoid getting them too moist, as excess water can damage the keyboard. Meticulously clean the whole keyboard using moist cotton swabs, laying extra emphasis on key spaces.
  3. Now, start cleaning keys you had earlier removed and kept in the container. Use foam rubber and lighter fluid to clean each key alone. This will help in removing any sticky substance present on keys. Apply any household cleaner on these keys and let them stay for about 15 minutes. After this, wash all the keys properly using hot water and let the keys dry completely.
  4. The small rubber pieces which you took out earlier and kept in the container have to be thoroughly rinsed in warm water, after you have sprayed a household cleaner on them. Soak these rubber pieces up in paper napkins so that they dry quickly.
  5. To lubricate the keys, place all keys (facing top-down) on a flat surface. Apply mild lubricant from all sides, on all keys and leave them to dry. Avoid applying too much lubricant instead go for a light coat.
  6. Similar to the manner in which you lubricated the keys, apply mild lubricant on the keyboard surface and let it dry.
  7. Once you have cleaned and lubricated all the parts, carefully reassemble the laptop keyboard. Begin with placing all rubber components on the keyboard. Next, fix all keys in their respective positions cautiously securing the wire in these keys. Use your finger and press down all keys, one at a time, firmly so that they fit properly in the slots. That is it.
  8. goodluck

How do i use the keys that got blue on them


There will be a key marked in blue letters "Fn" likely in the lower left area of the board. It is a modifier key, similar to a shift key. Hold it down, and press whatever other blue letter key you want to use

I'm sure you've been asked many times--how do I turn the numeric key pad on/off?


Look for a key labelled Num Lock or something similar (perhaps an arrow with a number inside). You may have to use shift or the fn key to toggle it. please vote.

Keyboard keys that have purple numbers are locked. Can't type.


Your "Num Lock" is on.
Look for the num lock key (it's similar to the "caps lock" key in function)
If the "num lock" is blue, you may have to hold a blue "fn" key when you press num lock

There's is probably a light at the top of the keyboard that'll tell you when num lock is on.

I just bought an Acer laptop andkeys are all different from desktop keyboard so wondering how I can find out what the keys are for without just hittin all of them. Are there specs available? Thankyou. Dee...


The symbols on the keys represent what will appear on screen

If the symbol is in blue that means you have to press the FN key over on the left side bottom row

Other symbols from the keyboard are typed by using the shift key

You can always buy a keyboard and plug it into the laptop if it proves to difficult

Cannot use letters of my laptop unless use fn key but not capital


You need to press the NumLock key to get the keyboard to get back to alphanumeric - it has a symbol of a lock with a number 1 on it. A LED should also go out/icon in your tool tray should disappear as well.

Wireless belkin keyboard


Hi. I have just worked out how to solve this as I had a similar problem. When you change the batteries of a Belkin Wireless Keyboard model F8E332ukBNDL you need to reconnect the keyboard to the wireless receiver that plugs into the USB port. To do this you press the 'Connect' button on the receiver and also press the green LED connect light at the top right of the keyboard - the one that flashes each time you press a key. I'm not sure in what combination you press these but I pressed them both and it worked.

Laptop keyboard problem


check to see if the "Fn" button is stuck down, it sounds like the keystrokes you are describing are some shortcut keys to provide adjusting functions for the laptop facilities. Turn off the laptop, disconnect the power adaptor, disconnect mouse etc... and pick up the laptop and give it a gentle tap from behind the machine, and also go through all of the keys and try to press them and you may find one or more are stuck down (in particular the Fn key or similar).
