Keyboard & sencerboad not\woring


If you mean the laptop keyboard and Touchpad are not working ?
the problem might be caused by the same issue for both.

Laptop keyboard and keypad not working

Laptop keyboards are a little more delicate than keyboards used in desktop computers. Hence they face more problems.

Normally, they are replaced when they render defective. However, most of these keyboard issues can be taken care of or even prevented by regular cleaning.

Common issues like, keys not working on your keyboard, having to press keys firmly to get the output or any keyboard typing issues, can easily be handled at home.


Sometimes you may find certain keys of your laptop's keyboard to not be 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 supposed to maintain your laptop's keyboard by cleaning and lubricating it regularly.

Troubleshooting Steps


Locate the "Fn" key in the lower right or left corner of the laptop keyboard.

The "Fn" key typically has different colored text on it or the key itself is a different color.


Locate the function (F1 through F12) key at the top of the keyboard that disables or enables the touchpad on the laptop.


To start with, take out each key. 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.


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.

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.

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.

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.

Similar to the manner in which you lubricated the keys, apply mild lubricant on the keyboard surface and let it dry.

Once you have cleaned and lubricated all the parts, carefully reassemble the 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.


The complete process will take you a maximum of 2 hours. Cleaning and lubricating the keyboard in the above prescribed manner once a year, can prevent many such situations.


Pressing the 'Function' key along with the 'Num lock' key (Fn + Numlock) or press the 'Function' Key along with the 'Shift' and 'Num Lock' key (Fn +Shift + NumLock). This will disable the lock and consequently solve your problem.

This was all about solving your laptop keyboard problems that you can try out yourself. After trying all the above given options, if you still find the keyboard still not working, you will have to take your laptop to a service center to get it repaired


Touchpad Not Working in Laptop


Most modern laptops come with a touchpad mouse built into the computer.

If you've tried to use the touchpad and the mouse pointer on screen is unresponsive, chances are that you or someone else has accidentally disabled the touchpad using one of the Function keys on the computer.


To fix an unresponsive touchpad on your laptop, reactivate it using the Function key on the keyboard.


This process is different for each computer manufacturer.

Locate the "Fn" key in the lower right or left corner of the laptop keyboard.

The "Fn" key typically has different colored text on it or the key itself is a different color.


Locate the function (F1 through F12) key at the top of the keyboard that disables or enables the touchpad on the laptop.


The key typically has an icon that resembles a touchpad with a finger touching it or a touchpad with a diagonal line through it.


Press both the "Fn" and touchpad Function key simultaneously to reactive the touchpad on your laptop.


Move your finger along the touchpad to verify that it works.

Press the combination at any time to disable the touchpad again.


Hope this helps

My q, w and e keys of my HP notebook aren't working. May be a virus os something like it?


It's most likely not a virus. To make sure of that first (if possible) plug in an external USB keyboard and try the keys that are not working on the keyboard to see if they work now. If they work now then there is an issue with the laptop keyboard.

Second make sure that the "Function lock" or "Num lock" button(s) are not pushed, sometimes these features interfere with the functionality of the keyboard. If they are not pushed then you will need to replace the keyboard. If the laptop under warranty then simply call up HP and let them now you are having an issue and they will ship you a replacement. If not then you will need to purchase a new keyboard (I recommend to buy from the manufacturer, but it's really up to you).

If purchasing a replacement keyboard is not an option, then you could try to remove the keyboard yourself (easy to do, most likely there is a few clips to remove then 1 or 2 screws) and try to see if there is anything in there causing an issue (dust, bread crumbs, and in my case hair). If you can clean it up a little bit and re-install it and you should be good to go.

Hope this helps

Hi !

If the keyboard is damaged or some keys are not functioning well. It is not repairable, but the whole keyboard can be replace by new one. Try to find computer repair shops that install new keyboard for your laptop. Normally, they have keyboard part in every computer. Good Luck.

There is not so much that could be done to repair a keyboard. Disassemble the laptop, check the ribbon cable connecting the keyboard to the motherboard. If the ribbon cable is loose, tighten it. If it is tight, replace the keyboard with a new one

Key board and mouse pad not working


Hello

To fix your problem please do the following;


Look for Fn function key on your keyboard- Most laptops have this special key next to the Ctrl key on the keyboard. It is easy to find

Look for F1 to F12 functions keys, they are on the top row of the keypad. Look for one has an icon that looks like the touchpad, which is to control the touchpad of your laptop.These function keys also control the brightness, sound, wireless etc.

Now hold down the Fn key and the key that looks like the mousepad to enable the touchpad, in Toshiba laptops. You press them again to disable it

If none of the above works, plug in an USB mouse, then check into the Control Panel -> touchpad or mouse and keyboard configurations. Also, check Device Manager if the touchpad driver is installed and working properly.

For the keyboard;

Diagnose the problem. When you press a key on your laptop keyboard, does it get stuck? Does the computer respond to your inputs? In almost all of these cases, the solution will lie in opening up your notebook's keyboard. However, to prevent extra work, press every key (do this in a word-processing program) and see which keys are affected. If every single key on a keyboard does not respond, you might have a software issue, which may require specialized help.

Clean the area around the keys that are not working. A damp lint-free cloth should be used to clean the surface of the affected keys. If you have stuck keys, use a Q-tip to clean under them, but take care not to pry the keys up, as this could result in further damage to your keyboard.

Remove the keys that are not working. Do this by grabbing some fingernail clippers and pulling out the hook-like fingernail cleaner extension. Use the small hook to gently pull the key up , which will expose a collapsible plastic hinge (commonly known as a key retainer) as well as a small rubber circular piece. Gently lift both of these pieces out of the keyboard.

Wipe the keyboard sensors clean with a dry cloth. The sensors are the little silver foil-like strips you see after your key components have been removed. Be very careful wiping these down--if they are damaged, they are very expensive to replace. Just gently dab it with a dry lint-free cloth to remove any dust/crumbs/particles that are interfering with your keyboard's functionality. Do not moisten the cloth with water or cleaning solution, as this heightens the risk for damage.

Reassemble and replace the keys. Simply fit the key retainer as well the little rubber piece together in the way you found them and then firmly press the key cap back in place.

Test your keyboard. Open a word-processing program and then press the replaced keys. If they still don't work, try restarting your computer, or activating a system restore point (to ensure that the problem is not software-related). If the keyboard is still not working, then you may want to think about taking the computer to a repair shop or replacing it altogether. (Keyboard repairs are very expensive.)

4 keyboard keys aren't functioning


Chances are there is a physical problem with the keyboard. Are the keys sticky or do they press normally and still not work? If the keys are sticky when you push them you can remove the keyboard and keys and try to clean the keys with rubbing alcohol. Chances are the keyboard is not defective and the link below will help you take care of that problem. If you need any further help let me know.

I am including a link to a new keyboard for your model Laptop. They are fairly reasonable condidering they are laptop keyboards.
