On a presario the keys are hinged with a small metal hinge at the top that fits into two plastic clips and lets the key sit over the membrane of the keyboard. If the plastic clips have snapped it will involve the fitting of a new keyboard which isnt a user serviceable thing.

If it's out of warranty (HP now own Compaq, so it's them you'll need to talk to, but they will tell you the warranty status from the serial number of the machine) you might consider a rubber "roll up keyboard" along the lines of http://www.iwantoneofthose.com/bendi-light-up-keyboard/index.html - these are rubber folding keyboards that can be transported easily in your laptop bag but are still full size.

Hiya,its an acer aspire 4810t laptop.the f3 button has a bluetooth icon on it,but still unsure how to turn on.thanks


You are looking for one of my favorite keys...the "fn" (or function) key. Juust left of the windows key (under your left palm) is the fn key. Pressing this key at the same time as a key with the F3 key will toggle your bluetooth on and off. In fact, the fn key will toggle several keys if they have a blue icon printed under the main number.

I'm unsure what all the orange buttons do on the key pad. Also I have "ideapad" which is suppose to allow me to set up face verification but I'm also unsure how to set up. Lastly, what does the orange...


Hi Bartomk,

The orange button located on the right hand side of the keyboard is the One Key Recovery. If you want to bring back the default factory setting of your computer just use the OKR button.
note: if you process OKR all existing files on your drive C will be wiped out.

How to use OKR:

1. Turn off the computer completely.

2. While system is turned off press the OKR button.

3. You will be directed to the One Key Rescue system page.

4. Select restore system to the initial back up.
5. Wait until the progress bar reaches 100%.

6. Reboot your computer.

Hope it helps,

Thank you for using fixya

My laptop has like 10-12 keys not working ,how can i fix it with out buying new keys or keys bord? Are you able to take the keys off and put them back on? Okay thanks.


Yes you can take out the keys and put them back on. But once the keys begin malfunctioning its from the board and hence you can only make it work by replacing or buying an external keyboard. But i suggest you take it to the tech department for clean up, dirt might be under the keys.
I hope this solution has been helpful.

Key come off


Depending on the keyboard design, some keys can be snapped back on. If that doesn't work, then generally a replacement keyboard is in order.

I usually find keyboards on ebay by searching for the model of the system

EXAMPLE: Dell D600 keyboard

Most keyboards can be replaced for around $20

Unsure how to turn wireless antenna back on.


Good Day,

You can check if there's a wireless button on the laptop, just turn it on. Usually it is located on the left side. If you cannot see anything, press Fn+ look for any icon on you F1-F12, check if you can see an antenna or signal. Press it together with the Fn key.

If you need assistance you can reply back. Thank you.

Reinstalling a key cover


I know these can be a bit frustrating, but you're just going to have to keep working with it untill it snaps in properly. Unfortunately there is no diagram for these, if you're unsure that you have it together right, I suggest taking another key off to see exactly how it goes together.
