    how to replace keyboard? can a non-techie do it?

    just the shift key is partially disfunctional

  • fredrikstad Jul 22, 2008

    if you are unhappy about the rating it is because i am unhappy about the reply, it does not answer the question

  • fredrikstad Jul 23, 2008

    Thanks for showing a place to download manuals. My Lifebook c1320 manual is not there, and the clostes relative contains chinese symbols that make my lifebook run out of lifebreath, I do not see any instructions on how to change the keyboard in the first half of the manual which is in english.

    I appreciate your patience, it must be tough on the nervous system.

It looks like you answered your own question - you really can't fix a laptop keyboard, but you can replace them. (or you can use an external keyboard)

Now is your problem:?
Letters qwert, asdfg, zxcvbn work OK but uiop displays as 456/ jkl displays as 123 and m displays as 0. Other keys also do not display correctly. Or holding the function key down at the same time as the problem keys ?

Then the solution is:
The problem was caused by accidentally pressing the num lock key. Once pressed, it remains locked even after a reboot. Pressing again returns the keyboard to normal.

    Please change the rating - THanks for trying rating is like the same as I didn't respond at all and as a tech that rating is VERY bad.

    The answer is a non techie can not fix it. I gave you all you need to fix it yourself including the manual and you wonder why people don't give information for free anymore. They are insulted when they give an answer.

H0w do i get my period button to start working again

If rebooting your computer doesn't fix it, and the period key is the only problem, chances are that the keyboard is bad. Good news, keyboards are cheap and easy to replace unless you have a laptop..

Hi i need a ers button for my laptop where can i get one

I assume you are asking about the E, R, and S keys on your laptop keyboard. You will need to replace the keyboard, as the keys are specific to each keyboard design......Don't bother looking for replacement keys.....replace the keyboard.....and save the old one in case the same thing happens again....then you will be able to transplant keys from one to the other. Laptop keyboards can be purchased for around $20-$50.

Hope this helps!!

Fix 3 beeps on a laptop and can not start up

3 beeps keyboard

desktop or laptop ?
Keyboard is not connected properly. Stuck key Bad keyboard Bad PS/2 or AT port Solution Keyboard is not connected properly Verify that the keyboard is connected properly to the computer by turning off your computer and then disconnecting and reconnecting the keyboard to the computer. Stuck key Ensure that there are no stuck keys on the keyboard. If all keys appear to be ok and you have a standard desktop computer with keyboard, turn the keyboard over and gently hit the back of the keyboard to loosen any dirt or hair that may be stuck in the keyboard. Bad keyboard Try another keyboard on the computer to verify that the keyboard has not gone bad. Bad PS/2 or AT port If all of the above solutions are not able to resolve your issue it is likely that the port on the back of the computer may be bad and the motherboard or I/O board may need to be replaced. b>

What does it cost t have a key replaced on my hp laptop?

It would be difficult to just replace one key, the reason the keyboard keys have hinges and these can vary between keyboard for the same model laptop. You may be lucky to find one that is the same from some spare keyboard parts.
Usually the best solution is to replace the whole keyboard. Please click on this link for replacement keyboards :-

Got liquid spill on lap top keyboard, lap top works fine,but some keys do not work, any suggestions!!!

Hi there,

Almost every laptop keyboard ever produced (or so it would seem) is available new as a part on eBay. It's where I buy all mine. SInce you don't mention the model of laptop here, just got to ebay's main page and in the search box type your laptop model followed by the word "keyboard". Most of them there are around $10 while others range up to $25.

Keyboards are usually just about the quickest and easiest part to replace on a laptop.

Best Regards,

My laptop keyboard just quit working and there has not been anything spilled in it? how can i fix it?

Hi, the keyboard is connected via a ribbon cable to the system board, this connection may got loose, re-seat this connection. but before doing this, try first turning off the laptop, remove the battery and replace it back. turn on. If this does not solve the problem replace the keyboard with a usb type external keyboard.

I need the new key board,for my lap top

Keyboard replacement for a laptop is not quite as easy as a desktop computer, but it is not difficult either. I would need to know what kind of laptop it is, and you would have to purchase this new keyboard from the manufacturer of the laptop. If you already have the new keyboard, please reply, and I will try to walk you thru the replacement.
