How do I clean or fix sticky keys (keys that take a lot of pressure to depress).

Most keyboards can be taken apart easily and cleaned with alcohol. remove the screws from rear of keyboard and it will come apart being careful with the keys not falling all over. if its a laptop they are difficult to clean because you cant take the board apart. you can remove keys and clean with Q-tip.

My tab key is not working on my Mac but mouse does it Just stopped working

There is probably debris under the key. You try to clean it out by prying up slightly on the key and blowing it out fro the other side with a can of air. That should fix it. If not, you may have to remove the key to get to the problem.

Some of my keys do not work on my acer 5517 computer

I suggest removing the keyboard and using a toothbrush on the contact point of the Ribbon cable where the keyboard's Ribbon cable connects to the motherboard, because sometimes they can oxidize. So, removing the keyboard and cleaning the Ribbon cable contacts has been known to resolve this type of problem, otherwise a new laptop keyboard might be in order.
However, to get the keyboard removed will entail some steps: First, the keyboard's retaining screws are covered up by a bezel. You can remove this bezel with a flat-head screwdriver by gently prying underneath it and lifting up. This bezel is located just above the keyboard and below the laptop's display screen.
Once the keyboard bezel has been removed, there should be two retaining screws that you can now see to remove it.
After removing the retaining screws, carefully lift up the keyboard because it is still attached to the motherboard via its Ribbon cable.
Before you remove the keyboard, you will have to UNLOCK the Ribbon cable connector and then carefully release the Ribbon cable - by moving the black tab up - about 1 to 2 millimeters. You should be able to move the UNLOCK tab with your fingernails. Also do not separate the Tab from the connector because it has to stay attached to the connector.
If you break the keyboard connector, you will have to replace the entire motherboard, so be extra careful and release the cable and remove the keyboard.

Removing the keyboard will give you the freedom to clean it in case there is any build-up or debris underneath its keys. Alternatively, you should now have a pretty good idea of how to replace the entire keyboard should that become necessary.

Problem: remove keyboard ASUS K72JK-TY043V.Thanks

The Asus K72JK-TY043V Notebook PC is one of the Asus K series of Notebook PC's.

This shows how to remove the Keyboard,

Shown is a disassembly guide, and of course you do not need that.

What I am referencing to is midway down the page under the bold heading >

Removing Keyboard.

The Keyboard is held in, by plastic tabs that are on the Palm Rest Cover.

These tabs are spring loaded. You press against each spring loaded tab, and depress it.

This action unlocks the Keyboard from the spring loaded tab.

There are Five spring loaded tabs.

The spring loaded tabs are located above the following keys;

1) Esc key
2) F5 key
3) F9 key
4) Prt Scr
5) End

Use a small flat bladed screwdriver such as a Jewelers flat tipped screwdriver.

Carefully press the tab TOWARDS to LCD screen.

Once a tab is depressed it unlocks. Go to the next tab.

The back of the Keyboard is towards the LCD screen.
Lift up on the back of the Keyboard.

DO NOT try to remove it at this time, as there is a flat cable attached to the Keyboard.

The Keyboard cable is an FFC.
Flat Flex Cable.

The Keyboard FFC does NOT have a connector attached to it.
The connector is permanently mounted to the motherboard.

The Keyboard's FFC removes from the connector on the motherboard. Just a flat cable hanging from the Keyboard.

The connector on the motherboard is a ZIF connector.
Zero Insertion Force.

This particular ZIF connector has a Lock Clip on it, that is slid slightly to one side.

As you view the flat flex cable coming into the connector, and above the connector, the clip is slid to the Left to unlock.

NOT very far. Approximately 2 Millimeters, or close to 1/16th of an inch.

Have questions please post in a Comment.

Laptop keyboard "dropping" key strokes

If this happens always with same key, then it is usually a bad key switch, and keyboard must be replaced.

If this happens randomly on a set of keys, then the keyboard flat ribbon cable is not well connected or is faulty, or the keyboard is faulty.

The laptop must be taken apart to check the keyboard connection.

The keyboard on dell is accessed removing determined screws underneath, then removing the upper cover that enclose pad and armrest.

If the keyboard is well connected, and fixing connector does not solve the problem, then the keyboard must be replaced.

I have a damaged keyboard which needs to be replaced

Here is the best way is 1st turn the unit upside down and remove all the screws along the rear two rows. 2nd turn the laptop back over and open the lcd. 3rd with a flat bladed screw driver, to the left of the power button there should be a small recessed tab, use your screw driver to gently lift the "strip cover" exposing the keyboard screws. Remove the screws and the keyboard should lift up exposing the keyboard connector.( if the keyboard does not lift easily, remove more base screws around the center of hte unit), 4th using your finger nail either lift or push the latches of the keyboard connector, allowing easy removal of the keyboard. The P/N should be listed on the keyboard starting with a "P".

Logitech mouse problem

I assume there is no second mouse on the system and you are using keyboard commands. Try the following in the device manager..
  1. Press Control-Esc or press the Windows key on your keyboard to bring up the Start menu.
  2. Using the up arrow key, highlight "Settings."
  3. Right arrow key to "Control Panel" and press the enter key.
  4. Use the arrow keys to highlight the System icon and press the Enter key.
  5. Use the right arrow key to select the Device Manager tab. (For Windows XP/2000 , use the right arrow key select the "Hardware" tab. Now use the tab key, select the "Device Manager" button and press the enter key.)
  6. Use the "Tab" key to select the "Computer Icon" at the top of the list of device icons.
  7. Use the down arrow key to highlight the Mouse icon.
  8. Use the right arrow key to open the mouse icon and verify there is a mouse icon that states, "HID-compliant mouse," and another entry that states the name of your USB device.
  9. If there are any errors reported on these icons by exclamation points or red X's, highlight these icons using the arrow keys and "Tab" to the "Remove" button and press the enter key. (For Windows XP/2000 , highlight these icons using the arrow keys and then press Alt-A keys. From the "Action" menu, highlight "Uninstall" and press the enter key.) When the "Confirm Device Removal" box appears, press the enter key.
  10. Once these icons have been removed, use the Tab key to get to the "Refresh" button and allow Windows to re-detect the pointing device. (If u r using Windows XP/2000 , press the Alt-A keys. From the "Action" menu, select "Scan for hardware changes" and press the Enter key.)
  11. Use the arrow keys to open the Mouse icon again and verify that there are no errors reported.
  12. Power down the computer system and restart Windows.

How to open keyboard

look for a thin piece of plastic strip that runs the full width of the keyboard near its top. Pry this off gently starting with a jewelers screwdriver (careful not to score plastic). after this is out, lift the keyboard out and disconnect the electric flex circuit.
