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.

I don't understand, my B key, N key, and space bar on my laptop have not been working and I've looked up solutions to fix it, but none of them work. I really don't want to buy a new laptop/keyboard.


Hello, blow out your keyboard with canned air, if that doesn't work they keyboard will have to be replaced to fix. They are cheap on amazon.com and youtube.com will show you have to replace the keyboard.

Problem with spacebar key


I don't quite understand why this would happen after pluggin in a USB mouse - but I've seen it numerous times after a liquid has been spilled on a keyboard.

Sounds like you need to replace the keyboard. Best way to test this is to plug in an external usb keyboard and see if you can type normally on it.

If the laptop keyboard exhibits this behavior, and the external keyboard doesn't - you should replace the laptop keyboard.

Hello my name is molly, i have a female quaker parrot named murial. she has been acting very aggersive ever since i have come home today . she has not been alone today but is vey angery. she is guarding...


Hi Molly,

FixYa is actually more of a product-support site than a pet-support site. To receive the most informed answers about Murial, you should probably seek out a site more geared towards birds.

That said, I have owned many parrots, and what Murial is doing definitely sounds like she's getting ready to lay eggs. Even if you don't have a male, Murial could very well lay unfertilized eggs. When female birds get ready to lay, they seek out a safe spot and start behaving very aggressively towards anyone who disturbs them. If she continues behaving this way and does not lay eggs, definitely seek help and look out for symptoms of egg binding.

If she does lay eggs, this behavior will continue. Eventually, she should abandon the unhatched eggs and return to normal behavior. If she doesn't, you will have to remove them to try and break the behavior (and get rid of a potentially stinky problem). She may lay again. Worst comes to worst, you can purchase fake eggs to replace the real ones with (sold online and at some bird stores).

For now, just make sure she has food and water, and isn't stressed out. It's also normal for birds in this state to have unusually large droppings (the result of holding them in for longer while sitting on the eggs or in their nest area). You may want to indulge her with some nesting material (or just a newspaper to shred).

Best of luck!

Hi

Sorry to hear about this, long time ( 6 weeks ) and now Space bar isn't available ..!

If you can, try to use sharp tool ( as a knife ) to get the key up, it will be dissembled, and try to fix it back again.

You cam use external USB Keyboard as alternative.

Please tell us your results
Good Luck

The space bar on my desk top computer will not work. I have to use the (-) sign to space out my words when I type. What can I do to get it to work? Can a virus cause it to do that?


This is an electro-mechanical problem with the keyboard. A virus could cause this on a programmable keyboard, but most likely the keyboard itself is bad. Try plugging the keyboard into another computer or laptop (some laptops will accept a 5pin or usb) and see what happens. If it works, scan for viruses. (It is doubtful it is a virus.)

Hello, my keys on the keyboard are acting up. The'j' key gives me the space bar and some of them dont give me anything...i can't even type in my username to get on


Hi, this can happen sometimes, the keyboard gets dirty or has something spilt on it. If you are confident, you can remove clean and replace, but if not I would get a shop to put a new keyboard in.
Sorry this is not straight forward

Somewine spilton thekeyboard


Looks like you've done pretty well. Its looks like the wine has clogged up the keyboard contacts, nightmare. Other than trying again I think you're looking at a replacement keyboard. You need a good repair shop or try to get hold of a second hand one. Ebay, repair shops etc.

If your're having a crack yourself, get into your instruction book, it may give a few clues if that's gone, go to the fujistu website and follow support and downloads links.
