Hi chevaliez ,

The problem that you have described indicates , the usual behavior keyboards show when they are about to be damaged completely, so the circuit starts malfunctioning with some keys , then with some more and eventually many keys malfunction.

I would recommend you to :-

  1. Get the notebook to the authorized service center so that you can get it repaired.
  2. Get the notebook to the authorized service center so that you can get it replaced which depends on the status of your warranty/guarantee period.
Hope this helps ..:) Your feedback would be appreciated.

That is quite common and can be windows updates or spurious downloads that corrupt the system files. Restoring the complete system will bring it back but it may be something to do with either the system drivers or keyboard driver. Try downloading fresh drivers from msi.

The character keys and numeral keys dont print only make a noice when pressed

From your query I interprete as they key is not displayed in the screen. First check with the external usb keyboard. If the external keyboard is also not working, please check the keyboard layout in the control panel regional settings. If the external keyboard is working well, change the laptop keyboard.

It seems like the driver for your installed keyboard has been corrupted or lost. You might want to try a rescue/boot disk to get things going again.

Hi I have a MSI U100 mini laptop - and the keyboard will not operate - the keyboard is not broken. any suggestions please?

Hi nick dunnmai,

Here are the things that you can try to diagnose the issue.

- Boot to "Safe Mode with Command Prompt" by pressing F8 (or F10..depending on the brand of the unit), if you can type from there, you are 100% sure that you're having software issue. In this case, you can perform virus scan, registry fix or reinstall the whole operating system.

- Replace the keyboard if it is not working in "Safe Mode". You can purchase a keyboard replacement or send back the unit to MSI repair center if still under warranty.

Hope this helps. Any comment is highly appreciated.

The shift key,backspace,delete buttons are not working

here are some tips to solve keyboard problems:

How to fix Keyboard problems:

1. Due to wear and tear, the keys for certain characters on a keyboard will wear out. This happens for more commonly used characters. If the problem is due to loose or improper contact, you can try to fix the key back. If this does not work, you can replace the key with a new key purchased from a computer store. Love your keyboard by handling it gentle.

2. Sometimes the keyboard drivers can get corrupted. You need to change them or test the driver.

Go to My Computer :::>Hardware:::>Device Manager and uninstall the keyboard. For windowsXP Start:::>Control panel:::>Keyboard:::>Hardware:::> uninstall keyboard. Restart the computer, the keyboard should get reinstalled automatically.The keyboard should start working again. If not so get keyboard drivers by updating windows or manufacturer web site.

Always use computer or antivirus protection - run a free computer antivirus scan or any other anti-virus since virus can corrupt system files. get one now!

3. Try to swap the keyboard with another keyboard which works properly on another computer. If the alternate keyboard has the same problem, there may be a problem with the keyboard circuit on motherboard.

If the alternate keyboard works properly, check if the keyboard cable is properly connected, whether wires in the keyboard cable are connected properly.

4. Open out the keyboard and check if the keyboard fuse is working. If the fuse has blown, replace it with another fuse of the same rating and size.

5. If you spill water or any liquid on the keyboard, switch off the computer immediately. Unplug the keyboard, turn the keyboard upside down and keep it out for drying either in the sun or under a fan. If some other sticky fluid has been spilled on the keyboard, use a moist cotton swab or ear bud to clean computer or wipe away the fluid. Only when it is completely dry, (it will take a minimum of 24 hours depending on the weather), connect the keyboard back to your computer.

6. For USB keyboard change the USB ports or unplug the keyboard from the USB port then plug it back until it responds or detected. Usually the keyboard led(indicator) lighting up should show a successful connection.

7. Set the speed of character repeatation. For windowsXP Start:::>Control panel:::>Keyboard:::>Speed:::>make adjustments.

8. Set the blinking rate of cursor. For windowsXP Start:::>Control panel:::>Keyboard:::>Speed:::>make adjustments.

9. Go for a typing course or tutorial on how to use keboard features.

10. For discolouration or fading of white keyboard. Use good computer cleaners,soft cloth, whiteners or vinegar mixed with water to keep the original white colour or clean. don't use bleach or rough material to clean. disconnect the power supply. switching to good black keyboard can comfort you.
