Has it recently had any water or other liquid spilled in it? Liquids will cause the keys to stop working, especially sticky ones like soda or coffe.

It could be that the keyboard simply has gone bad.

Press ******* the keys and see if they register. Also, if you have some canned air, shoot it into the area where the keys aren't functioning and see if there is any gunk that might be giving you fits.

The keys on my laptop are stuck. They will not work


you'll need to replace the keyboard, it's relatively cheap. trying to fix a keyboard with sticky keys due to a spill or anything else isn't cost or time effective.

Check right click button also, if it is not working, it means the bottom row of your key board has fault. Open your keyboard and clean it.

The keys on the keyboard is not working. Mainly the bottom row of letters are not working.


Hi. If you have Mac, it seems that bottom row keys not working is a common problem but I can't find a solution yet. If you have a desktop PC, just replace the keyboard. It is cheaper to replace a desktop's keyboard than to repair it. If you have a laptop, you may try cleaning the contact between the keys and metalic contacts of the keyboard. Use a pencil eraser to clean the contact. You need to completely remove the keyboard from the laptop. If you are not a tech. savvy, you may have to ask for professional help.

Can't type same key twice in a row on keyboard. Have to wait a couple of seconds before typing same key again. bar on bottom of screen flashes yellow every time I press a key and window toggles between...


Have you ever tried putting in another keyboard? If the
other keyboard works, it's definite that you have a defective keyboard, and you must get a replacement. This is my observation based from your comments that there is no problem with the keyboard settings in your PC.

Gear head keyboard with only the bottom row of keys responding


If the mouse works fine, then there's no problem with the wireless donggle. If there are some keys that are not working, you need to contact the manufacturer for RMA.

Keys Not working


if replacing the keyboard failed to resolve the problem then the keyboard controller is most likely failing and than means a new motherboard.
