I purchased an rca 10.1 tablet with keyboard and now some if the letters on the keyboard are not working. What is the problem?


The keyboard is the problem. Keyboards work off a scrolling matrix, so if only a few are not work then circuit for that particular key is broken. Usually by something being spilled in the keyboard or because something was dropped onto the keyboard or the user likes to pound on the keys when entering key strokes. Replace the keyboard.

The letters o l . & , will not type on my Sony VAIO PCG-8112L. What to do?


The keys have probably gone bad on the keyboard. I'd recommend you just get a new one. Replacing a keyboard is actually pretty easy, and you can get the part from online for fairly inexpensive. Just make sure the models match because all VAIO keyboards are not alike. There are several tutorial videos if you need them on youtube for simple repair work. Don't be daunted, it usually just involves a few screws and popping the keyboard out. This isn't anything you should pay someone to do unless absolutely necessary.

Letters popped out of computer keyboard


If it is a laptop, you will need to get a replacement keyboard or actual key, remove the old one and put in the new one. A key that is popped off is usually broken.

Letter fell off


The keys usually clip over the stem, take the letter R and carefully position over the stem and push down gently until you hear a click, if the key is in place it should be the same hight as the others. If the key is broken or won't go back into place the key or keyboard will need to be replaced.

I password my laptop (samsung R510) and one of the key I used is not working and I got an external USB keyboard by the keyborad is not working with, what will I do to used the external keyboard


your USB keyboard may not work because your laptop has not got to the point of initiating USB at the point of booting to password.
You could try using ascii codes to eneter the key
at the point where you need to enter the key that doesnt work press your numlock button this will turn some of your letters into numbers...they should be written on the keys in a different colur...the laptop Im looking at at the moment has 4 on U, 5 on I 6 on O, 1 on J etc...
hopefully these are not the broken key..
if you look here you will see the chart that says A=65 B=66 etc in order
http://www.asciitable.com/

find the letter you need eg v=118 in lower case
type in your password till you get to the v (if thats the broken letter)
press and hold [ALT] button with num lock on and on your newley formed number pad type in the number thet represent the letter in this case 118 when you release the [ALT] key it will insert that letter.
however this only works with an extended keypad (like a full size keyboard) where the numbers are seperate not your top row numbers which is why you need your numlock on.

if it does then work maybe you could go into your bios and turn USB legacy support on...which may then help your full size keyboard to work too.

The A came off


It should be possible to just clip it back in. If however any of the plastic bits have broken off you are most likely going to need to replace the keyboard (it's not cost-effective to buy a replacement key).

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.

How to replace a key cover on a fujitsu siemens amilio pro v3515 laptop


Hi Robin:

I hate to say it but you will always have problems with that key coming off...I would recommend that you search eBay for a broken laptop...same make and model as yours perhaps one with a broken lcd...usually you can pick them up for around $10.00. And then replace the whole keyboard.

If this is something you want to tackle yourself please feel free to contact me for step by step instructions.

Good Luck,

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.
