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.

My # key isn't typing on my lifebook A series


Try pressing and holding the key down, and then releasing. Additionally try to blow some air under the key (compressed air is preferred). If that doesn't work then gently try to pull up on the key, usually pulling gently left or right, this will hopefully pop off the key so you can see if something is stuck underneath. once you have examined underneath then replace the key by simply snapping it back on by pressing it downward in its slot.

Tip

To Reboot or recovery from CD/DVD problem with OS "Aser"


If you don't press the Alt+F10 key combination or use the recovery CDs, can you get into Windows? Boot with the recovery CDs in. When at the Acer logo during POST, press the F12 key. Then, select boot off CD or DVD. Alternatively, you can enter the BIOS by pressing the F2 key at the Acer logo and go to the Boot tab. There, you can set the CD/DVD drive as the first item in the boot order.
When turning your laptop on, before Windows starts booting, a splash screen appears first (usually with the logo of the manufacturer). Look on the splash screen (usually at the bottom) for a key (usually F10 or F11), assigned for System Recovery. Some manufacturer(s) (e.g. HP) place the recovery files to a hidden (mostly) partition of the hard drive, the others give a Recovery CD/DVD with the laptop.
or
  1. Press the start button from the start menu depending on your operating system(win 2000,xp)
  2. Press Ctrl+Alt+delete combination from the keyboard.
  3. If you have a power button on your laptop keyboard,it could also be useful by pressing and hold it down for few seconds

N.B: "Ctrl+Alt+Delete" can exit you from usage and trigger a reboot
or Shutdown. Try and reboot using the operating system. Attempt to use the key combination that will allow you to exit from the operating system and restart the laptop. Be patient, as it may take some time if it has locked up. Hold down the power button. If the operating system's answer to the rebooting will not work, find and hold down the power button of the laptop. This should cause the device to shut itself off. You'll have to press the power button again to power it back on, completing the reboot.
Unplug from the wall and remove the battery. If restarting via the operating system and the power button do not work, unplug the laptop from the wall outlet, and remove the battery from the laptop. This will cause it to power off immediately. Allow time to reboot. Give the laptop time to cool down before you power it back on if you had to do this manually.A few seconds should do unless you have additional problems.

All the Best!

I have a 2000 Mazda B4000. about a week ago it began starting harder and harder. Now I have to press down on the accelerater pedal slightly to get the engine to start. I have to keep the pedal pressed...


this is usually due to plugs and wires, but if thats not it try replacing the coilpack/s also.
Another thing check your fuel filter it might be a bit clogged.

Blue screen shows up


usually points to the hard drive. try running the hard drive diagnostics on your Dell computer. Shut down the computer, then press and hold down the FN key, then press the Power button, afterwards, release both buttons. That should load the diagnostics for your Dell laptop. Note any error code that you may find.

Try booting in Safe Mode. If it works, chances are, it is related to a device driver

Toshiba Satellite P200 doesn't boot


Try pressing FN/F5 keys simultaneously, or the key that toggles internal/external Display. Look for the double screen Icons on the keys.

Tap the Pause Key.

Restart and press and hold F8 key when Toshiba logo appears. When the boot Menu appears, select Last Known Good Configuration.

If all else fails ther should be a reset button on the side of the LT. Consult owners Manual for location
