Open the Control Panel>Regional Options my computer keyboard does not - 6a8a6d0.jpg

433996d.jpg
Click on the "Customize" button next to the first pull down menu. Sometimes these settings can interfere with your keyboard. Make sure that, at the bottom of the "Customize" dialogue, your measurement system is set to whatever system your region uses. Once that tab in "Customize" is all set, move over to "Currency," "Time," and "Date," making sure that their settings are correct. Click "Apply" for both the Customize window and the Regional and Language Settings window. Test out the keys using a word processing program such as Notepad or MS Word. If the problem persists, it may be a hardware issue. And if the above steps didn't work then your keyboard may be broken. Take a screw driver, cotton, and "spirit or aciton" and eraser "rubber". And then open or untie the screw of your keyboard and slowly remove all the keys and try to remove the carbon and gently wipe out all the keys attachment by applying the spirit and wipe out with cotton or rubber "eraser" gently where there is dirt. Then Check out whether there is disconnection or not?. And fix it as before and tied up all the screw it and fit in your CPU and see whether it's working or not if not my comment is to buy "purchase" a new one.
All the Best!

Computer Repair Services


Computer repair includes software and hardware repair. Hardware repair is needed when any part of the computer is not functioning as expected. Software repair is required when any software program is not executing properly.

Need of computer repair

Computer repair is needed for making your computer function properly. Your computer will function properly if all its parts are working properly. Some of the issues for which you require computer repair are as follows:

• Computer automatically shuts down
• Computer takes much time in launching applications
• Computer system crashes or locks up
• Blue screen error
• Computer makes beeping sound when switched on

The reason for most of the computer issues is the lack of maintenance. For maintaining your computer and optimizing its performance, you have to update software regularly, clean registry, empty cache files and many others.

In case, you have the knowledge about how to repair your computer, you can perform it yourself. But if you do not have any knowledge in this field, then you can contact a computer support technician.

Computer repair technician is a person who will repair your computer either through online or on-site. Online computer repair is preferred in case your computer needs software repair. If you want to go for online computer repair, all you need to have is an Internet connection. Online computer repair saves your from the pain of taking your computer to some technical services center or inviting some technician at your own residence.

These days most of the companies offering online computer repair adopt the method of remote desktop connection. Technician will access your computer with the use of software made for remote desktop connection. But you have to give him permission for doing so. After getting permission, he will diagnose your problem and after that resolve it. Technician will install, reinstall or uninstall any software, or modify some of the settings for resolving issues.

In case of hardware repair, you have to call a technician in your premises. Technician will diagnose all of your peripheral devices, in case of any faulty one, he will replace that one. He will also update drivers of peripheral devices.

So, it can be said that computer repair is required when your computer is not functioning as expected.

Keyboard Reset?


try To download the latest drivers for the keyboard that you are using, visit the following Microsoft hardware Web site: 
http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/download/download.aspx?category=MK



If the issue occurs again, connect the keyboard to a different computer. If the keyboard functions correctly on a different computer, the port to which the keyboard was connected on the original computer may be damaged. If this is the case, contact your computer manufacturer to inquire about how to repair or replace the damaged port.
If the keyboard does not function correctly on another computer, the keyboard may be defective. If this is the case, and the warranty on the keyboard is still valid, you can exchange the defective keyboard for a new keyboard.


good luck :)

Keyboard not functioning at all


The problem may be two things:

1) Its cord is disconnected from the PC unit
2) Your Keyboard drivers are outdated.

If the cord is fine, I recommend that you go to the hardware wizard (Start Menu -> Settings -> Control Panel -> Hardware Wizard) and run a "detect new hardware." This feature should be able to get your keyboard going again - and you should be able to access this feature by using your mouse only.

While there are many places that repair laptops...it is important to find a company that has experience and is trustworthy.

You can search the internet and also have a look at our Depot Repair service:
