    This is my sister-in-laws laptop, I picked it up and brought it to my house and plugged it in and started it up and it works fine. I don't know if leaving it on most of the time has anything to do with it. I will let you know.

    I found that she was leaving it on all the time. I told her to shut it down at night, It has worked fine since then.

Hello,

turn of your computer, and hit the keyboard hard with your hands. Hit it severally, I means the whole keyboard. Turn on the computer, then try again. If that doesn't solve the problem, then it means your keyboard is faulty and you will have to replace the whole keyboard.

You have an option of using an external keyboard or your system's on-screen keyboard.

To get the onscreen keyboard on your computer, click Start > All programs > Accessories > Ease of Access > On-screen keyboard.

Note that once a key on a keyboard is faulty, it means the whole keyboard has to be changed. So you can manage using the on-screen keyboard, since other keys are working.

Good luck.

The letter ' B ' and ' N ' on the keyboard is not working


This will be a keyboard replacement and would not be too expensive especially if you could do it yourself or know someone who can as it is quite easy, it would only be the cost of the keyboard if it is a laptop or netbook.

Every letter on my key board worked the letter before the letter t will not work now.


1. Save your work.
2.Restart the computer.
3. If itdoesn't solve the issue get a can of compressed air and blow your keyboard, gentle with your finger nails do like if you are lifting the key as you blow it and it should remove any debris stuck under that key.
depending of your skills on computers I would take the keys off the keyboard and wipe it up.
If none of those options works your final choice will be replace the keyboard!

My letter k on my keyboard does not work how can i fix it


Plug in a USB keyboard into your laptop and see if the letter "k" works on it.If it does, then your laptop keyboard isn't working properly.

If the USB keyboard letter k doesn't work, then there is a Windows operating system issue that is keep your letter k from working.

What is your laptop brand and model?

Keyboard letter not working


Disabling just a single key on Windows is possible, but it is highly unlikely that a computer technician could have gone to Control Panel to remap the keyboard.

More likely, one of the keyboard switches is broken, and the A letter is not working anymore. This happens quite commonly, and when the problem occurrs, the keyboard will be replaced.

You can find out if problem is hardware or software going to CMOS settings, and chosing to set a password. Then setting BIOS password AAA. If the A letter works in there, then the problem is software, and it can be fixed reinstalling Windows, if A key does not work in BIOS settings, then the keyboard must be replaced.

The keyboard for an Acer 5315 is not an expensive part, and can be purchased for less than $20.

If a repair job had recently been done, and the laptop came back withthe keyboard problem, try calling back the repairman, and insisting for having the repair done at a reduced fee.

Certain letters/characters will not work.


Maybe: If it is a wireless keyboard....perhaps new batteries...but that is unlikely.  Usually when the letter buttons die in a group like that, the best thing for you is to bite the bullet and buy another keyboard.  Perhaps there was a spill on the keyboard...perhaps that particular group just gave out.  The good news is that keyboards are relatively cheap...and there is nothing quite like the feel of springy, new keys under your fingers.

I can't quit a program using apple key and letter Q and more problems


Hop into your system preferences and make sure you don't have anything turned on in Universal Access. If you don't, it's probably a bad corner of your keyboard there.
