    the q and z row are sporatically firing multiple keys and rarely the correct one. Got a solution?

  • divyajagadee Aug 12, 2008

    The Keys in the entire row from Q to P dont work most of the times. When this happens, the left and upper arrow key does not work. The Shift Key on the right does not work too when this happens. Initially the problem started with only the P key. Then if i pressed it again and again and held it down for a long time, it began to work. But now this trick does not work too and the problem has spread to the entire row. Please help me out.

    How to troubleshoot keyboard issues?


    Wireless Keyboard:
    If only some of the keys don't work skip to the section Some Keys Don't Work below.
    1. Resynchronize the keyboard. Press the connect button on the keyboard for 5 seconds. Then press the connect button on the receiver for 5 seconds
    2. Change the batteries.
    3. Try reseating the receiver if possible.
    4. Try positioning the keyboard closer to the receiver.
    5. Skip to the section Generic Troubleshooting below.
    Some Keys Don't Work:
    1. Check if any of the num lock key, shift lock key, etc are causing the issue. This is especially prevalent on laptops which don't have a distinct numeric keypad.
    2. If it's only the multimedia or hotkeys that don't work then try installing the specialized multimedia keyboard software that came with the system/keyboard.
    3. Try reseating the keyboard and rebooting.
    4. Go into Accessibility Options in Control Panel and check that Sticky Keys, Filter Keys and Toggle Keys are all switched off.
    5. Check if the problem occurs in the BIOS. A good screen to test with is the create BIOS password screen if the keys don't work here then a new keyboard is in order.
    6. Continue on to Generic Troubleshooting.
    No Keys Work:
    1. Try reseating the keyboard and rebooting.
    2. Try power draining the system. This can be particularly effecitive with a laptop.
    3. If this is USB try a different port.
    4. Try entering BIOS - if you cannot get into BIOS then the keyboard probably needs to be replaced.
    5. Go on to Generic Troubleshooting below.
    Generic Troubleshooting:
    1. Try uninstalling and reinstalling the keyboard driver and reboot
    2. Try system restore back to before the problem occurred
    3. Check for malware or 3rd party software that may be interfering with the function of the keyboard.

    One letter is not working on my keyboard


    One moment you are typing on your computer keyboard as usual, when suddenly a key sticks or does not produce a character on the screen. Perhaps you have a group of keys that suddenly stop working. Laptop and desktop keyboards alike can stop functioning due to a number of causes, most of which can be resolved by troubleshooting. Knowing how to fix some keyboard keys that do not work can save you time, and save you the cost of buying a new keyboard.

    Update the device driver for your keyboard by going to the manufacturer's website of your keyboard, and then download and install the latest driver matching the brand and model number of your keyboard. Disconnect your keyboard from your computer and inspect the pins in the keyboard connector if you have a PS/2 connector. The PS/2 connector for your keyboard has six pins, which connect into a PS/2 port of your personal computer, to allow for communication to and from your keyboard. Straighten any bent pins you may find, by gently using a ballpoint pen. Y ou must replace your keyboard if you see broken pins. Try testing your keys using a different application, such as another word processing program. Keys like the function keys on your keyboard labeled F1 through F12 may not work in one application but will work fine in another. b> Clean Under Desktop Keys b> Disconnect your standard desktop keyboard, then press down on a key not working. Slip a car key or a flathead screwdriver underneath the key. Twist the screwdriver or car key until the keyboard key pops off. Use a damp cloth, moist cotton swabs or compressed air to remove dust, hair, and food crumbs under the key. Use only water or rubbing alcohol to moisten the cloth and cotton swabs other cleaners can damage the plastic of your computer. Position and press down on the key to snap it into place. Repeat this for all of the keys to clean underneath them, if necessary. b> Clean Under Laptop Keys b> Turn your laptop off, then use a flathead screwdriver or knife under a key corner, prying the key off gently. You will hear a snap as the key detaches. Remove the key retainer remaining on your laptop using your knife or screwdriver under the corner, then popping it off with a gentle twist. Remove the space bar by pulling it off after your insert the screwdriver or knife underneath the bar. Clean underneath your laptop keys using cotton swabs or a soft cloth dampened with water or alcohol. You can also use compressed air to remove dust, hair and other debris. Replace your laptop keys by placing the key retainer into position. If you cannot remember the position, copy another retainer's position by removing another key. Insert the keypad into the retainer, then position the key over the retainer while pressing down on the key. You should hear the key snap into place. Place your laptop's space bar over the space bar slots, then snap it into place.

    I am not able to work with my keyboard function keys and num keys and function keys . but the the touch pad key is onlyworking .please send a solution to unlock the keyboard. hp pavilion g6-2102tx


    Examine your keyboard to ensure your "Number Lock" key is not activated. This activation is indicated by the key being lit up. If the key is activated, press it to deactivate the lock. The number lock key will deactivate an entire segment of your keyboard

    Start, click Run, and type regedit to open the Windows registry editor. In the registry, open the below folders.

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\
    Control Panel\
    Keyboard\
    Within the keyboard folder, you should have a string value named "InitialKeyboardIndicators" with a value of 0, 1, or 2. Below is the explanation of each of these values.

    0 = Num Lock is turned OFF after the logon.
    1 = Disable Num Lock.
    2 = Numlock is turned ON after the logon. Hope this helps.

    Shift key not working


    You have 2 Shift keys on the keyboard. If the other shift key is working then the shift key that is not working is defective. You should consider replacing the keyboard on your laptop. There is no setting on Windows that can disable the shift key.

    **Note : If both Shift keys are not working, Try to check if sticky keys feature on windows is on. Sticky keys should be disabled. To disable sticky keys, Click on start and Go into control panel > Accessibility Options, and under keyboard there is sticky keys. Remove the tick and click apply and OK.

    **If "Use Sticky Keys" is unchecked, that means sticky keys is disabled.

    Keyboard


    No keys on my keyboard work. Cause: This issue is often caused by either a bad keyboard, bad interface board, and/or bad motherboard.
    Answer: Disconnect the keyboard from the computer and connect another known working keyboard to it. If this is a PS/2 keyboard and connecting multiple keyboards or a known working keyboard to the computer PS/2 port does not work unfortunately it's likely that the PS/2 port is bad. Because this port is part of the motherboard this will require that you replace the motherboard. Alternatively if replacing the motherboard is too costly or not an effective solution you could also consider using a USB keyboard if USB ports are available on the computer.

    Not all keys on keyboard work.

    Reference number: CH000305
    Not all keys on keyboard work. Issue: Not all keys on keyboard work.
    Cause: This issue is often caused by a bad keyboard or software preventing these keys to be pressed.
    Additional information: This document contains information about troubleshooting a keyboard that has some functioning keys. If no key on the keyboard is working see document CH000955.
    Solution: Verify that the key is not working in more than one application. It is possible that some keys may not be used in all programs. This generally always applies to the Function keys F1 through F12. If not all keys are working in all programs and you have Windows, attempt to boot the computer to a MS-DOS prompt or safe mode and test the keyboard in DOS. Information about getting into safe mode can be found on document CHSFAFE and information on how to boot to DOS can be found on document CHDOS. If it appears that a substance has been spilt into the computer, please review document CH000303. If all above suggestions have been completed or if you are not running Windows, it is likely that the keyboard and/or keys are bad and it is recommended that the keyboard be replaced with a new one.
