Is only the cap loose, but you can still operate that key?

On most laptop keyboards, the letters are caps on the keyboard button. They are held in place by small plastic tabs on the keyboard structure. The cap snaps in place and is held by the tabs. If the tabs are broken, the cap stays loose.

Some keyboards use a small slider that moves as you depress the key, which means you can't glue it.

Laptop keyboards are replaceable and can be purchased cheaply on ebay or some repair sites.

How do you fix the keypad? I cannot type anything


Sounds like the main lead of the keyboard has come loose, either that or the key board needs to be replaced. Here is the link to the video instructions on how to replace, I would follow the instructions on the removal and check the main power cable of the key board and make sure it is not loose before you buy another key board, cost for a new key board should range from 8 to 15 dollars. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1vRglqfQjyE Hope this helps. :)

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

Either the inverter board and/or the main LCD screen is inoperative and must be replaced. If laptop is greater than 2.5-4 years old, does not pay to replace. Replace entire laptop.

I have a asus eee 900hd pc wont type the key board


It's probably a hardware failiure, but it could also be a loose connection, if it's loose, you need to open up the laptop, which I would suggest being very careful on. If you have a warranty, get support and such. There's a virtual keyboard on control panel's accessibility options in Windows XP. I'm not sure about Vista.

Key board not responding


Try attaching an external keyboard to a USB port on the computer. If it works.

The keyboard cable is probably loose.
