It is near impossible to clean sticky keys, especially when you have spill sticky liquid on the keyboard.
The best solution is to replace the keyboard.
You can get a replacement keyboard from one of these WEB sites.

Keyboard keys wont type. used on screen keyboard to type this. any suggestions?


You might have "sticky keys" so try this:
When sticky keys are enabled, users can access functions that require pressing multiple modifier keys such as "Ctrl," "Alt" and "Shift" at once by pressing one button at a time. If sticky keys are enabled, it is possible to accidentally turn them on at an unwanted time. After turning off the sticky keys, disable the feature to prevent them from accidentally turning on again.

    • Press the "Shift" button five times in a row to turn off sticky keys.

    • Open the "Start" menu and then click "Control Panel."

    • Click "Ease of Access Center" from within the Control Panel window.

    • Click "Make The Keyboard Easier To Use" from within the Ease of Access Center window.

    • Remove the check-mark beside "Turn On Sticky Keys" to prevent sticky keys from being accidentally turned on.

    • Click "Apply" to save your changes and then click "OK" to close the window.
Hope this helps. Good Luck!

Im not sure what happened but a sticky key caption appeared on my screen and i just deleted but since then when i hit shift key to get symbols and the AT sign it wont work and its frustrating when trying...


You've turned on Windows' "sticky keys", one of the accessibility options. Pressing the Shift key 5 times in a row activates it. Sticky keys lets you type key combinations (Shift-x, Ctrl-Shift-x, Alt-x, etc.) one key at a time. It's for people who have trouble holding several keys down at once. Press the Shift key again 5 times to bring the sticky keys dialog box back and turn off the function. You can also disable it permanently in the Control Panel's accessibility settings program.

How do i get underneath my keyboard to clean if it is sticky with soda pop that has splashed on it


Hi,

The best way is to go to a computer shop and buy a "key picker" essentially a metal hook which is used to pull keys off. Word of warning dont try and rip off the space bar just normal keys. Alternatively give to a comp repairier for a clean should be fairly cheap.

Thanks

Shift key not working


You have 2 Shift keys on the keyboard. If the other shift key is working then the shift key that is not working is defective. You should consider replacing the keyboard on your laptop. There is no setting on Windows that can disable the shift key.

**Note : If both Shift keys are not working, Try to check if sticky keys feature on windows is on. Sticky keys should be disabled. To disable sticky keys, Click on start and Go into control panel > Accessibility Options, and under keyboard there is sticky keys. Remove the tick and click apply and OK.

**If "Use Sticky Keys" is unchecked, that means sticky keys is disabled.

My shift key wont work at all


Holding down both shift keys at the same time wont work. Chances are you have a dead key. use the other shift key instead. if a program is mapped to use specifically that shift key, remap it to the opposite one.

If you are using a desktop, replace the keyboard; if it is a laptop replace it if you can yourself, otherwise, call a computer technician.

4 keyboard keys aren't functioning


Chances are there is a physical problem with the keyboard. Are the keys sticky or do they press normally and still not work? If the keys are sticky when you push them you can remove the keyboard and keys and try to clean the keys with rubbing alcohol. Chances are the keyboard is not defective and the link below will help you take care of that problem. If you need any further help let me know.

I am including a link to a new keyboard for your model Laptop. They are fairly reasonable condidering they are laptop keyboards.

Sticky keys


Dear rwertheim


Try the following guide

http://www.laptoprepair101.com/laptop/2007/03/20/key-fell-off-keyboard/

There are no guides from Gateway for the keys available for the but this guide will be more than enough to help you through this one in order to remove them. Its should be completely the same principle.

Cleaning the keys should be done without alchohol based cleaners because the lettering might be erased. Use some soap and warm water instead and gently scrab with a soft brush the bottom of the keys.

Please remember to take out your laptop battery/ac adaptor in any case since you will be working at hardware level with your equipment.

Regards, and I wish you no more sticky keys!

Please dont forget to rate this solutin!
