Question about GE Office Keyboard HO98056

2 Answers

Recently, numbers 1 to 4 on keyboard won't work.

Sometimes, Keys 1 to 4 will not work. This has been and off and on problem. One minute they work, then other times won't. Sometimes I have to press hard or rapidly to get them to work.
Does this mean I have to get a new keyboard? or is the driver need to be updated. Or is this something different, because all other keys work.

This is only a --temporary-- solution.
I have the same problem, with only the numbers 5 and 6 working. My temp solution is to use the character map, located at START -> Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> Character Map. If you don't have one, you can do a search to download a free one.

Seems to be a defective keyboard. You can try cleaning under the keys and use a can of compressed air, but if this does not work, then its best to buy a new k/b. It is not a driver issue, although you can try to reinstall the driver and see if this helps..

My keyboard only works when it wants to, i thought it was a virus but my laptop is now virus free and my keyboard still does not work properly, sometimes does not work at all sometime the number two holds...


If you have a sticky key that you know of you may have a couple that you haven't noticed. The number 2 key sticking usually means something was spilled on it at one time.If nothing is spilled you will only see the keys at the sides act up and usually the longer or larger ones. These act up from not hitting them straight but at an angle.

The next time it does this try thumping the keyboard to jar stuck keys loose. The key may look ok but is stuck just enough to do this. You just need to flick a finger at the keyboard to knock them loose. You may have to do this a few times before it dislodges the offender. On a normal keyboard you flip it over and knock on the back like knocking on a door to do this. On a laptop you can't hit it as hard.

If the keyboard keeps doing this your option is to replace it. Depending on the make and model a new laptop keyboard is about $45-$75 and is installed in a few minutes.

1 year old grandson slammed his hand onto the number keys (right hand side), battery fell out, put it back in and shut it down, restarted it but now it won't let me type anything.


It looks like it was really hard on the keyboard. The PCB tracks are likely to be broken or the ribbon cable below the keyboard has come off its socket.

I recently have been having problems w/certain keys on my Apple Keyboard with Numeric Keypad. I used some wipes to clean it the other day...and almost immediately the spacebar & a lot of of other keys...


some of the fluid from the wipes must have short circuited the keyboard! you may have to invest in a new keyboard and keep it away from water based wipes this time!

For some reason, I can no longer type a colon. I can type a semi colon ;, but shifting does not give me a colon. Can you help?


Has it always been like this? or you noticed it recently? The thing is, sometimes the characters on the keyboard are not where they're mentioned. So check all the other keys while holding down the 'Shift'. I am sure you will find your 'colon' under a bracket or a number.

I cannot use 1,q,a,z keys in my hcl keyboard.


Hello. Has the keyboard been dropped/banged around recently? Do you have children or pets that could have spilled liquid, food, who-knows-what in the keyboard? Also, if you press one of the non-functional keys(eg.: A) do the keys above/below it press down as well?
