WHen using the shift key to type the at sign or the esclamation mark etc it does numbers


Is this the only problem with the keyboard not getting uppercase to work ?
While Acer laptops are built to be used on the go, they are not indestructible. An accidental drop or even normal wear and tear over an extended period of time can cause the laptop keys to become dislodged and fall out. Debris can also build up inside the keys and make them stick or stop working. Fixing the keys on your Acer laptop is a quick process that does not require taking the unit to a professional repair shop.

Power off the Acer laptop and flip the unit over. Slide the battery release lever over and lift the battery out of the laptop. Turn the laptop back over and open the lid. Look inside the open area on the keyboard where the key would normally go. Check to see if the plastic retaining clip is still inside the hole. Locate the plastic retaining clip if it fell off the keyboard along with the key. Use a pair of tweezers to set the clip back inside the hole. Line up the holes on the clip with the four raised nodules inside the keyboard hole. Set the key back onto the plastic clip. Push the key down until it clicks into place. Flip the laptop back over if there are keys that are not working properly. Use the Phillips-head screwdriver to remove the three screws on the left side of the case that hold the keyboard in place. Turn the laptop back over so that you can see the LCD screen. Push the thin end of a flat-head screwdriver under the LED indicator strip above the keyboard. Pop the strip upward and pull it off the laptop. Lift the keyboard up towards you until the long ribbon cable running from the bottom of the keyboard to the motherboard comes into view. Unplug the cable from the port on the motherboard and then pull the keyboard and its ribbon cable off the case. Spray out the underside of the keys and the inside of the Acer laptop case with canned air. Reassemble the keyboard, LED indicator strip and battery.

My keys are all shift_ed


Hello,

Please, if you can, try to remove the keyboard and reseat its cable on the mainboard. The AoA150 has small little clips that are mounted into the top cover that you can push back.

Also try to install USB keyboard and see how that behaves.

From your description, it might either be that one shift key is broken and perma-on, or the keyboard cable wasn't seated properly.

If all fails, try pressing in either shift-key a bit harder for a longer period, and see if the problem gets better or disappears.

As I am typing on my computer, the cursor bar goes to the beginning and continues my typing from that point. It's really hard to type and then have to go back and fix all the errors, especially since I am...


Either you are pressing the HOME key on the keyboard - it should fall somewhere under your right ring and little fingers - or the HOME key is defective, i.e., stays half-way pressed. Check it if it "feels" different. If it does, Dell keys may be removed by GENTLY lifting them with a fingernail from the bottom and twisting them upwards. Ensure there's no grit, dust, or hair under the key, and verify that the little pod below the key feels right (if it doesn't, the keyboard will have to be replaced. You can find instructions on Dell support site, and a brand new 1525 keyboard should set you back around US$ 15 on eBay). To put the key back in place, position it where it should stay and push it down firmly, first on the top then on the bottom, until it clicks.

If your problem is typing on the HOME key by mistake (or maybe the Ctrl-H key or some other, depending on your word processing software), maybe you can have benefit from one of the many freeware programs known as "keyboard remappers". Just remap the HOME key to something harmless (e.g. shift) when starting the word processing session and remap it back once you're finished.

Ms 8000 mouse pairing code


You choose your own code. It's a keyboard right? So it has numbers on it...and an Enter key.
1. Press and hold in the small button next to Bluetooth symbol under the keyboard for 5 seconds. The charge indicator lights at the top of the keyboard should alternate flashing red then green.
2. Search for Bluetooth devices on the devices you wish to connect the keyboard to. The Keyboard should be listed there.
3. Enter a code of your choice into the device you are paring the keyboard to and submit it. I used a 4 digit number which worked without a problem.
4. Type the same code and press Enter on the Microsoft Wireless Entertainment Desktop 8000 Keyboard.
The keyboard should now be paired with your device.
Good luck, - GregAndo

Do not use glue! These keyboard caps just press fit onto the keyboard. Line it up and push straight down. The arrow facing in the right direction should give you the right alignment. If the key does not stay on, you must replace the keyboard as it would be missing the attachment point that would keep it on the base. Without seeing it in person, it is hard to say. I am not sure I understand what you mean by the key is locked to the keyboard?

Gateway m-7301u 15.4 widescreen keyboard problem


The keyboard would need to be replaced because once the plastic tactiles are messed around with they loose there shape plus the metal pieces that the plastic tactiles stay on get bent as well which means the keys won't stay on as well and stay looser then normal, thats why its suggested to get a new keyboard.

Keyboard key issue in laptop


The metal bar needs to be clipped on to the plastic shift key. Look under the plastic shift key and you can see recess where the metal bar fits. Place the shift key over these recess and push down until it clicks into place.
