Pop the enter key off (be gentle), then take a Q-tip with alcohol (rubbing not drinking) and clean the connector and the rubber riser. If the problem persists, the you will have to replace the keyboard.

Keyboard keys not working properly


If you've spilled a liquid on your keyboard, then you should look into buying a new keyboard to replace your old one, as cleaning it won't help.

You should know your brand / model, so just search for one in Amazon or eBay.

Scan for Viruses

Sudden, unexplained computer issues are commonly caused by a virus infestation. These sneaky programs secretly install themselves on your system and alter the way the machine functions and responds to commands. Eliminate any hidden malicious programs by running a deep scan to find and destroy unwanted programs. You may need to perform a restore or recovery action on your system afterward to replace corrupted files with the correct versions.
Troubleshooting

To determine whether your non-functioning F5 key is due to a software issue or faulty hardware, connect a separate keyboard to your Pavilion. If the F5 key works on the external keyboard, the problem with your Pavilion's F5 key could be physical, such as a dirty key or spilled liquid. If the F5 key does not work on the external keyboard either, the problem likely lies in the software. Make sure that your operating system files are up-to-date to encourage proper communication between the keyboard and motherboard.

Thorough Cleaning

A keyboard key can become non-functional if it cannot make contact with the proper sensor beneath it, such as from accumulated debris or a spilled liquid. Dust, hair and lint can collect beneath and between your Pavilion's keys, which can interfere with proper contact when the layer becomes too thick. Sticky residue left behind by sugary liquids, such as soda or juice, can cause the key to stick, preventing the computer from registering the press. Thoroughly clean the area beneath the F5 key by gently prying the key off and using a cotton swab and rubbing alcohol to remove any dirt or residue.
Safe Mode

When you start your Pavilion, numerous other programs automatically start with it. Any of these programs could cause the F5 key to become non-responsive. Starting the Pavilion in Safe Mode will load only the essential operating system files and drivers, and if the F5 key works while in this mode, your problem most likely lies with an installed program or hardware device. To enter Safe Mode, restart your laptop and press the F8 key immediately. You'll enter the "Advanced Boot Options" menu, where you can use your arrow keys to select "Safe Mode" and press "Enter." If your F5 key still does not work, you may have a problem with your operating system files.

It's most likely done , shut down, remove battery, remove keyboard , try to clean. Replace if necessary. Rarely does liquid of any type do electronics any good.

Hi, this is molly vang, sorry i can't spaces on my keyboard. The spacerbar is not working and I can't understand what happened. Also, now the backspace is not working good to...


This sounds like a hardware issue. Try using a USB keybord to confirm that it's only your laptop keyboard. If the USB keyboard doesn't work properly, then you should run a virus scan and update your laptop's drivers.

If you've spilled liquid in your pc shut it down immediately, remove the key caps, and clean the domes with Isopropyl Alcohol on a Q-TIP.

If your usb keyboard won't work, and you haven't spilled liquid: Pry the key up and check if your rubber domes are broken. Sometimes keys that are used frequently will break. Try placing a piece of paper on top of the dome, and snap the key back on.

Acer Aspire 5610 - one key does not work


Laptop keyboard are semi-sealed circuit boards. This means that liquid can get into the contacts and can not be cleaned. Depending on how much liquid was spilled on the keyboard chances are that the liquid has seeped around the edges of the keyboard and down onto the mainboard of the laptop. My first suggestion would be to keep the laptop turned off until you can remove the keyboard and check for liquid damage to the mainboard. If there is no damage to the mainboard I would suggest buying a new keyboard before turning the computer back on as any shorts caused by the liquid damage on the keyboard can cause damage to the keyboard controller circuit on the mainboard.
