    Hello, I've got exactly the same problem on an ASUS V6V laptop. g, h, backspace keys not working at times. However, they work if I press the Fn key simultaneously, which makes me seriously question it's a material problem with the keyboard. Could it be a virus ?

Try popping off the keys and cleaning area. Check to see if the rubber piece is in place. Try pushing the rubber piece and see if it works then. If not, try pulling the rubber piece off, cleaning below. Use a finger nail to push the gray flat contact on the plastic board to see if it works there. might be junk or bad contacts. If you don't want to worry about it, remove the keyboard and search google shopping about the part number to find a replacement.

To the RIGHT of the "space-bar" on your keyboard is the 'ALT(ternate) GR(aphic)' key. Hold-down that key, and press the '?' key, and a '?' should appear on your computer's screen.

Back space key seems to stick in the on position (electronically not physically)when pressed and released. If the key pad is removed and the backspace pressed with a pen it seems to work normally.


that happens when the spring/switch of the specific key go bad, normally in such cases the entire keypad have to be changed but if you are lucky then it is possible that only one key will be changed.... so without wasting time get it repaired from some professional

Backspace button does not work


Use the backspace in between a sentance typed on Notepad, if that works - your keyboard and key is functional. Else, you might need a replacement Keyboard. (Click on Start > Run > Notepad > OK - To open notepad)

Backspace doesnt work


in all likelihood your shift key is stuck. try pressing and releasing both shift keys in an attempt to "free" them. Also, check to ensure that "sticky keys" is not enabled on your computer(pressing and holding the shift key for about 10 seconds should pop up a window if it is. if the window appears, just make sure that the key is not "stuck" by windows).

Solution: mechanical agitation for your shift keys to attempt to free them, and a good thorough cleaning for all of your keyboard with canned air and/or a lint free cloth damp with dilluted isoprophyl alchohol to prevent this from happening in the future with these or other keys. Alternately, replace your keyboard.
