Why when i type some of the letters dont show up

That would be due to a faulty keyboard, due to old age, lifespan of keyboards or maybe during typing you are missing the key and the keyboard results in not recognizing that command. If it is happening with a deliberate press (even when you press harder) it is due to the contact panel underneath that is making your letters appear. Maybe a cleanup of dust and stuff will fix it, or as a more expensive solution a new keyboard. Ebay ranges keyboards for vaios at around 25dollars

Some keys on keyboard not working on my acer aspire 5253-B2692

Im going to assume you didn't spill anything on the keyboard here...The best solution for you is to take the keyboard out and reseat the ribbon cable that holds it in place. Sometimes those cables get just a little bit loose, but a little can cause a lot of trouble as you can see. Let's see how much "notepad" or some other writing program you have....type every single letter and number and see which ones you are missing. Let me know if there are any others that don't work....then we'll go through the process of taking the keyboard out and reseating it.

Number keys don't work right above letters on keyboard

You have to hold the Fn key, usually blue in the lower left corner of keyboard, for the numbers above the letters to work.

Good Luck,

Hello, I was needing to know how to take apart a Toshiba A505D-S6958 laptop's grill so that i could clean underneath the keyboard ?, is this an easy process ?, or is it more to it than I'm thinking...

It is not too hard and it can be done. If you just need to clean it, you can use air can compressor to clean it the surface and underneath the keys because dust can't get into underneath keyboard, therefore, you don't need clean underneath part unless you need to replace the keyboard.
But if you still really need to do it (for learning experience), then yes, you can do it.
All you need to have it a flat and philip screwdrivers. Be gentle when do it, you might need to take picture of keyboard before it been removed so that you match them when you put keyboard back.
Use flat screwdrive to remove the top part of you keyboard and underneath you will see 4 or 5 screws that hold keyboard, just unscrew them. Here is the link for more information.
For more information about your laptop parts and location, see

Good luck
Thank you

Keyboard is missing the D key what should I do


I would suggest that you just try to find the spesifick letter you need, a new keyboard for that device will cost you a new laptop. Go to any computer hardware store near you, they usually have odd parts that they give away, maybe you are lucky. Otherwise just contact the manufacturer and order the letter you need. Hope this can help you.

Best regards

Spilled a little rum on the corner right side of the laptop and now had to get an external keyboard because the laptop keyboard types multple letters and numbers when keys are pressed.

If that is the case you can purchase a new keyboard off ebay for $20, remove the screws holding it (will either be underneath laptop or right above keyboard) and replace.

DELL 9300

pop the key off and look underneath, there should be a rubber nipple thing that pushes down and spings up, this is what holds the key up and without it, it wont make contact to tell it you pressed " P" If its there, you can try setting it back in place and it should be fine. If its missing, then your out of luck and un-fortunatley, will have to ge a whole new one just to fix it.

you can look online or get one from ebay that is sold as parts. then keep both keyboards in case it happens again, you will have spare parts.
