Laptop keyboards usually come off two ways. 1- remove the screws on the bottom of the machine, sometimes marked with a K. It's always better to remove too many screws rather than not enough. It won't hurt anything as long as you get them all back in. 2- the screws are located under the power button strip at the top of the keyboard. The strip just snaps into place, lift one side and work it up and off. I would start here, since the strip is easy to take off. Here is a couple of links that have diagram. You may be able to find a breakdown diagram for your machine.

Lifebook. Why can't I type on login page?


1. Press the Fn key a few times, it may be stuck.
2. Press the Fn key + the number lock key, your keyboard may be set as a number pad.
3. If you have access to a USB keyboard (e.g. from a desktop) then plug that in and see if it works.

Can only certain alpha keys


I would try cleaning your keyboard. If you are gentle you can remove the F10 key and check that they is no dirt underneath. Check other keys near the F10 key in case others have the same problem. I know that a sugary Cola spillage on a keyboard really sticks things up. In that case it was easiest to get a new keyboard.

Space key doesn't work well


I would power off the computer and continously hit the space key for a few minutes. It might have a liquid spill such as a soda pop under it and causing it to stick. If that doesn't solve the problem you might need a new keyboard or go inside the laptop and remove the keyboard cable and plug it back in to reseat it. Sometimes that helps. Here's a fail safe alternative. Bring up google's website www.google.com and in the search box type "download.cnet.com" (without the quotes) and click the link to go to their site. When the site comes up look immediately to the left and you will see a gray area that says Find Software. Type in "free virtual keyboard" (without the quotes) and click the mirror to search. It will bring back a page and the Free Virtual Keyboard is listed first. Look to the right of it and click the Download Now button. Download and install it. Once it is install you can look in Start/Programs and right click on it and select Pin to Start Menu then right click again and select Desktop (Create Shortcut). It's a neat keyboard to have just in case your real keyboard goes bonkers. You simply click on the letter with your mouse pointer that you want. It has all the functionality of a physical keyboard. You can open a web page, place your mouse in the address line then bring up the virtual keyboard by clicking on it from your desktop or start menu and it will sit on top of whatever you were trying to do. You can move it to see the typing area as you click on a letter. It works the same way if you opened a word document. In your case anytime you need the space bar, just click on it.

My laptop keyboard hasn't been working for about 24 hours. At first, my laptop shift key seemed to be stuck because I was typing in all symbols instead of numbers like # instead of 3 or & instead of 7....


1. Boot to diags, Fn+Power see if the issue occurs in the diagnostics, If it does, you need a keyboard at a minimum. If it works normally, then it is a software setting.
2. Boot to Safe Mode F8 at boot, see if it works normally there. If not then check the regional and language settings and make sure they match the keyboard you have installed (US, UK or French Canadian Keyboard?)

If you have number lock on your keyboard and accidentaly press it your keyboard will have this problem. As far as clicking on things and it still does that, this leads me to beleive one of your keys is stuck and preventing you from clicking things( possibly the shift key). If this is the case try locating the problem key, remove the key and clean it out and gently reinstall. Hope this has helped. Good luck

Keyboard problem with an Asus Pro Series 31: Running Vista Premium


Hey,
According to me one of his keys is function keys (like : Fn,Ctrl,alt,shift) is stuck or gets stuck now and again , so whenever in msword u try and type nething its actually getting pressed ctrl + something, and hence weird functions keep on popping.
This generally happens either when he has spilt milk/water ne other liquid onto the keyboard, Solution to this would have to replacement of keyboards(Some keyboards are designed in such a way that liquid can be removed from then but i don't really know how).
Another reason would be over/improper use of the keyboard and particularly those keys causing them to get stuck
solution in such a case would be to remove the particular key and try cleaning it.
This problem is pretty common in laptops all you can do i use more carefully...i dont think there is any fool proof solution.
Cheers

Viewsonic Tablet PC keyboard issue.


Try reseating the cable that connects the keyboard first.

If that doesnt help there may be liquid around the connector and it needs to be cleaned off to keep the circuit from shorting out. You will need to find someone with the appropriate chemicals and may have to take the laptop further apart to clean it all up.

This is why when anyone gets a liquid spill i recommend getting it torn down right away and cleaned up, as it can damage things you cant even see. If the liquid has been in there too long it may not be repairable.

Good luck!
