I can assure you that your generosity is truly appreciated by all who know of it. Forgive this boy, buy the new keyboard and get on with your wonderful life. These things happen and sometimes it is no ones fault. My wife decided to "help" one time and used a floor vacuum cleaner to clean my laptop key board. She quickly sucked three keys into the vacuum and threw away the bag before anyone realized. I can laugh now as I tell this to you....but at first I was not laughing. Take care. J.

The.spacebar.stopped..working.



If your space bar isn't responding when you press it, or if it responds sluggishly, it's possible that you have inadvertently enabled the "Sticky Keys" or "Filter Keys" accessibility option in Windows.


When these options are enabled, your keyboard response time will be dramatically slowed and may require more than one tap to register a keystroke.


Fortunately, it's easy to disable these functions and return your keyboard to normal working order.


Click "Start" and select "All Programs."


Click "Accessories" and select "Ease of Access."

Click "Ease of Access Center."


Click "Make Keyboard Easier to Use."


Click "Set Up Sticky Keys." Deselect the checkbox that says "Turn on Sticky Keys When Shift is Pressed Five Times." Make sure the box that says "Turn on Sticky Keys" is not checked. Click "OK" to save your changes.


Click "Set Up Filter Keys." Uncheck the box that says "Turn on Filter Keys."

Click on the checkbox next to "Turn On Filter Keys When Right Shift Is Pressed For 8 Seconds" to deselect it. Click "OK" to save your changes.


Click "OK" again to save all of the keyboard accessibility changes you have made.


Hope this helps

Left shift key not working


Hi Marcy,

Check that the key depresses all the way (same amount as other keys next to it). If so, then the most likely problem is that the keyboard has failed. You can have the keyboard replaced fairly easily.

Keyboard for the Dell Vostro 1520 costs $20 or less depending on where you buy. You can view YouTube videos on how to replace the keyboard or have someone professionally replace it for you.

I have a advent laptop, i am looking onlibe for a new keyboard as my little boy got hold of laptop this morning and pulled every key off, i need to know wat number adven my laptop is how do i find out...


I do not know about a new keyboard but your model number is usually found on the base of the machine.

If you have the parts the boy pulled off you be able to stick them right back - most keyboard letter buttons fit in with a simple push. The Shift, Caps lock and space-bar have little wires that need to be hooked into a matching part in the base before you push it in. Hook the wire while holding the part level and above the keyboard, then pull back and push in. Good luck!

Thank you for rating fixya answers.

How to use Alt Car key?


I am guessing the Vaio you have is a Canadian model, which has alternate keyboard drivers for English and French. On these models, it seems the alt car key only works with the French keyboard (durr). To switch, press the LEFT control key and RIGHT shift key at the same time, then release. Now if you use the alt car key like the shift key, i.e. hold it down then press another key, you should be able to access the pink characters. To return to English keyboard, press left-ctrl and right-shift together again.

hth!

Hi james,
sorry to hear that your kindness to another has been let down .
to replace the keys or the whole keyboard is not too big a job .
try searching on ebay for a replace keyboard ( in the uk around 20 pounds ) or buy a used one and change the key top
this is a link below to ebay as an example

Shift key doesn't work!


I think that you need a new keyboard a new computer will be two expensive for just one key on the keyboard

you can also try an external keyboard just one that you can plug into the USB port it will work out just fine

My shift keys hate me


Your keyboard is in essence one big circuit board and that circuit can have failures like any other piece of equipment. If no other keys are failing or giving you issues than it most likely is just with that circuit, the shift keys are generally tied together on the same circuit unless they are programmed differently which can be done in certain games. You may have to replace the keyboard with a new one to rectify this situation. It's not a cable not seated well issue and I don't believe it is a driver issue. Good luck
