Carefully pry up they A key.

You will see a little rubber thingy under the key, pop it up and you will see a little circuit board under where the A key was located.

Very gently clean SOME of the gunk off the circuit board contact, while keeping the circuit board undamaged (I usually find a nice new rubber pencil eraser works fine for this task).

Then gently wipe the bottom of the little rubber thingy off with a piece of printer paper (you are going for keeping the black on the rubber thingy but the sticky gunk off)

Then replace the rubber thingy and the A key and give it a go,

If that does not help then yes you will need a new keyboard. You can also disconnect the ribbon cable that goes to the keyboard and connect an external usb keyboard and try that to get you by.

My daughter accidentally dropped my asus eeepc 1005 HA. the LCD is broken now. where can i have this repaired? where to buy lcd replacement? How much is this? thank you

Hi Welcome to FixYa!
1)If your computer is in warranty, you could contact the Technical Support for ASUS and inquire about the repair process. access this link:
and just select your region to find the nearest Repair center to your location.
2)if the computer doesn't have any warranty, just visit any local technician or Computer Repair Centers near you.
Just to give you a heads up, if its the LCD, it could be a little pricey..

Hope this could help your concern!
Have a great day!

How do you restore a asus eeepc notebook 1001ha/1005 series

Turn it off. And as it turns on press F2. Then it will prompt for the advance option then press F8. When the menu comes up press "repair my computer". choose the restore to factory. Make sure you back up files that you want to keep. Caution: Make sure you charge the laptop full and keep it plugged in. If the there is a power failure and your laptop runs out of battery, it would mess things up.

My asus eeepc 1005 ha is generating noisy sound. How can I solve this?

It could be the CPU cooling fan. First try to blow the dust out of the case with compressed air. The fan could just be dirty. If that doesn't work, I would suggest that you get the fan replaced. You can do it yourself if you feel comfortable taking the computer apart. If you don't have the experience, though, take it into a shop.
