Keyboard problem About 2% of keystrokes do not register. That is, nothing happens when the key is pressed. It can be any key. The next keystroke will be OK. If I plug in another keyboard the problem disappears. Thanks for any help you can give me.

If its a wireless keyboard, replace the batteries. If its not wireless, try plugging it into another port(if possible) and if it still doesn't work, you probably have a defective keyboard.

My del button wont work on acer 5235 or backspace help needed please

Easiest a new keyboard. Beyond that, pop the keys out with a butterknife, and insure that nothing is keeping them from fully depressing. If there's no obstruction, you might try completly pulling the case off the keyboard itself. If you've never done this, you'll find that each "key" on the keyboard corresponds to a matching "black button" on the physical board itself. The Key pressing on this button is what sends the signals to your computer that a keystroke has been made. Try pressing that little "black button" with a pencil or something, and see if it registers. If it does, you just need a new key, if not, the board is shot and it's cheapest to get a whole new keyboard.

I know that i've kind of watered this down, but i hope it points you in the right direction.

I cant find the button to square a value, what does it look like?

There isn't one. You can square a number in two keystrokes by multiplying it by itself (press ENTER then *) or, if stack lift is enabled, by raising it to the second power (press 2 then y^x).

Since it only takes two keystrokes, there was no point in making a shifted key sequence to do it, and keyboard real estate was too limited to devote a key to the function.

My vaio vgn-sr220 keyboard wont read some of my keystrokes. this has only happen twice add i haven done anything to the laptop.

Make sure you don't have any spyware or viruses on the laptop because that will cause some keystrokes not to register cause memory may be taken up by viruses or spyware.

Run your viruscan to make sure it removes any spyware or viruses that might be on the laptop. Also make sure you don't have alot of programs running in the background. A good indication is if you have alot of icons in the bottom right hand corner of the screen where the time is located. If you do, disable then and see if the keyboard responds better.

If you do all of this and some of the keystrokes are still not responding, then that means the keyboard is bad and would need to be replaced.

Missing Keystrokes on the HP17bII+ Calculator

Have you tried any other models of HP calculators? Like maybe the 12c? Perhaps the issue is the way you push the buttons - I'm not saying you're doing it wrong what I'm saying is maybe the tactile response from this particular model just doesn't work for you. i.e. it feels like you pressed the button but it didn't actuate. I know, it's a rude idea to solve an HP problem by suggesting buying another HP but it just might work. Go by an office products place and see if the have a 12 Demo you can play with to see if you have the same issue. If this doesn't resolve the issue then maybe try one of TI's business models.

My dell laptop's keyboard has randomly stopped working when I press the keys nothing happens

Hi there, I have the same problem. The problem is the computer is not recognizing your keystrokes. You can get a company to get the keyboard fixed for about $50 dollars. If you don't want that, try going under device manager and see if the keyboard drivers are installed.

My laptop does not respond to keystrokes. Could

I would say its probably because either the keyboard is bad or the cable from the keyboard to the motherboard needs to be reseated.

You can always try to keep pressing the F8 key as soon as you turn on the laptop and see if you can get it to go into the boot menu. If you do then you know the keyboard is fine, you can always go into safe mode and choose a system restore back to the last date the keyboard was working properly.

Give it a few tries and if you can't get it to go to a boot menu then the next best thing to do is to turn off the laptop and then take the keyboard cover off. Once you have it off then go ahead and unscrew the screws that are holding in the keyboard. Take out the keyboard and then go ahead and put the keyboard back in.

If you do this and it still isn't responding to any keystrokes then the keyboard is bad and would need to be replaced.

Dell keystroke delay

This type of thing usually happens because the computer is doing other things such as accessing the harddrive or or any other number of things. You can test this by booting into safe mode and see how well your keyboard responds. You will probably find it works fine there. You will need to isolate what other activity is slowing your computer down in the normal mode.

If this helps can you rate this as fixya.
