The number keys on the right hand side of the keyboard dont work or are locked, every thing else is ok

The only solution is to have the keyboard replaced, there is a ribbon cable from the keyboard to the motherboard and sometimes the ribbon or the keyboard develop issues. I suggest a computer tech to deal with the repair.

Need to replace the keyboard of your DELL laptop? It is not as difficult as it...

Need to replace the keyboard of your DELL laptop? It is not as difficult as it sounds; it should take no more than 20 minutes. Also, a DELL laptop OEM keyboard replacement is usually around $20-$40, which is much less than what a computer repair shop would charge you for the repair. Here is what you need to do:

1) KEYBOARD PART NUMBER: Be sure you have the right keyboard for your laptop. The easiest way to do this is to look up in your user's manual for the PART NUMBER for your laptop's keyboard. If this is not an option, there are other ways to get the right part. The most direct one is to just remove the keyboard and look up the part on the keyboard itself (since you'll need to remove it anyways to replace it).
2) REMOVE THE KEYBOARD: Removing the keyboard depends on the specific model you have, but in general in involves the following steps:
a) Unplug the AC charger
b) Remove the battery from the laptop
c) There should be a small WHITE button located on the top right of the keyboard, right on the edge of the keyboard. Using a screwdriver, press it in and lift the flat piece of plastic that goes from the right to the left, just on top of the keyboard. BE CAREFUL NOT TO BREAK IT.
d) Now you should see 2 or more screws (usually Phillips screws) holding the keyboard down. Remove them.
e) Carefully lift the keyboard FROM THE TOP SIDE and SLIDE IT OUT about 2 inches (5 cm). The keyboard is attached to the laptop with a flat cable, so be careful.
f) Unplug the flat cable from the keyboard and remove the old keyboard
g) Get the new keyboard and plug in the flat cable to the laptop
h) Slide the keyboard in, bottom part first (the bottom part of the keyboard is the one FURTHEST from the screen). Press the keyboard down in its place.
i) Re-attach the 2 screws you removed in step (d). Be careful NOT to over-tighten the screws or you may damage the new keyboard.
j) Re-attach the flat plastic part on top of the keyboard, starting from the LEFT and making your way to the RIGHT, carefully pressing it down in place.
k) Re-install the battery and the AC charger. Turn on the laptop.

You can find laptop replacement parts (including keyboards, screens and rechargeable batteries) on Ebay or on (the latter also has a nice search feature, to locate the right replacement part)

New lenovo N500 laptop keyboard not working just noise

The N500 has a row of touch sensitive buttons above the keyboard, toward the right side of the computer. If you have accidentally press one of those buttons you may have disabled the keyboard, try pressing one of those buttons to activate the keyboard again.

Good luck.

Spilled a little rum on the corner right side of the laptop and now had to get an external keyboard because the laptop keyboard types multple letters and numbers when keys are pressed.

If that is the case you can purchase a new keyboard off ebay for $20, remove the screws holding it (will either be underneath laptop or right above keyboard) and replace.

Acer aspire 3003wcli keyboard stopped responding

You probably activated the "Num Lock" accidently. Just hold down the FN and look for the key that says "num lock" Now you should have your keyboard back and the numbers will just type when you hit the numbers key. I did this to myself yesterday!
