    It is not the external keyboard that is the problem, it is the keyboard on the laptop that is not working properly. The external keyboard when plugged in works fine.

Remove the keyboard from the system and plug it back in. If that doesn't work you will have to replace the keyboard. Ebay for less than $20 for a keyboard.

Delete button keys not working laptop


Unlikely, good diagnosis though. You don't have much option there: Try a keyboard attached to it to see if that same key on the external keyboard works. If yes it means you will neeed to replace your laptop keyboard.
If it doesn't try to uninstall the keyboard driver and restart. keep your spare usb keyboard just in case, reinstall the driver from samsung support and download website if necessary.

Cheers

Latitude B130 screen works great then cuts out to complete black, works with external monitor


Are you sure that the display is not set for external monitor only? Also take bright flashlight and shine on the display. If you can see the images then the problem is with the back light and usually caused by a bad inverter. Some times you can get the back light or inverter bu most times it is easier and cheaper to replace the entire display.

My Compaq netbook mini 110c keyboard some keys stopped working. I cannot enter the power-on password. Will a replacement keyboard solve this problem?


Yes, a replacement keyboard should solve your problem. The way to check is to plug in an external keyboard... if that works fine then you can be pretty sure that the netbook itself is fine and it just needs new keyboard

I bought a Sylvania SYNET07526 in CVS and everything was working fine. Yesterday I put a password to login to then I turn it off. Today I turned on the netbook and asks me the password but do not let me...


Hello, I think you can plug in an external keyboard in one of the usb ports on the side (not the back ones) One is for an external mouse, and one for a keyboard.
If you have an external keyboard with a usb plug on it, try plugging it in and entering your password that way.
Doesn't everything bought new have warranty of some kind?-It does in the UK anyway.
Kind regards,

Keyboard on lap top not working


Hello there,

What I would assume in your case is that the jack is not sensing that the keyboard(external) has been unplugged. You can check if the device is working properly in Hardware manager. Assuming you are using XP right-click on My computer->click properties-> hardware manager and check under keyboards. If there's any exclamatory mark next to it then it seems there's some kind of problem with it. Right-click on the device and click on uninstall. Since most of these workstation keyboards are Microsoft PS/2, windows should automatically find and install drivers for it. If it stil doesn't work then its likely to be a hardware failure. Contact HP immediately. Let me know if you need more help.

Keyboard not working


Hi

Try an install a USB external keyboard or PS2 whichever. If the external keyboard works then reinstall the drivers for the keyboard they should be universal. If that does not work then it looks like your keyboard has failed.

Scrambled keyboard


Have you tried cleaning and reseating the zif connector that connects the keyboard to the motherboard? Depending on how many cats and kids bang on the laptop, that can cause a problem. Another possibility is using an external keyboard and see if the same thing happens. If so, look to see if a keyboard program of some sort is running. If the external keyboard works fine, then you will need to replace the internal one, or just continue using the external one.
