Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

The computer & keyboard are only a few months old; the keyboard is clean, but the keys stick so bad, then sometimes you have to wait about 10 seconds & it will let you type again ?? Is this the keyboard or something with my internet service? Thanks.

When you say the keys stick, if you mean they rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrepeat then its your keyboard if you mean there is a long delay when you are typing then all of a sudden the words just catch up then something is occupying your processor time (its not internet connection as content is usually only submitted to the net when you press enter)
press crtl Alt and delete (assuming ur using windows)
click processes
click on the colum header (CPU) if anything is using CPU fore than 50 other than system idol then especialy when your computer pauses then that is you problem.

Keyboard dont type


No matter how careful you may be, knocking a cup of coffee or spilling a glass of soda over your keyboard may happen. This does not, however, mean the end of your keyboard. If you act quickly, you may be able to fix your wet keyboard to avoid any corrosion of its electronic components or any short circuit which might render it unusable. By following a few recommendations, you should be able to fix your wet computer keyboard.

Unplug the keyboard from your computer immediately after the spill to avoid any corrosion or short circuit. If you spilled water over your laptop's keyboard, turn your computer off by clicking on "Shut Down" on "Turn Off" in the start menu, unplug the power supply and remove the battery. Turn the keyboard upside down and shake it to remove most of the water from it. Take a hair dryer and set it to its lowest temperature setting. Use it to dry any water which might remain under your keyboard's keys. Wait at least 12 hours before plugging your keyboard into your computer again. If your computer is a laptop, wait 12 hours before turning it on again. For Other Liquids Disconnect the keyboard from your computer immediately after the spill to avoid any short circuit or corrosion. Turn your computer off by selecting "Shut Down" or "Turn Off" in the start menu, remove the battery and disconnect the power supply. Place paper towels on a table, turn the keyboard upside down and shake it over them to allow most of the liquid to fall down. Take a few clean paper towels and wipe the liquid off your keyboard's keys. To clean between the keys, you can also use cotton swabs with just a little bit of water. If the liquid which you spilled over your keyboard contained a high amount of sugar, such as soda or sugared coffee, you might have to remove some of your keyboard's keys to clean the surface under the keys with paper towels or swabs. You can do so by lifting them gently with a screwdriver or by using a key remover, which you can find in some IT stores. Wait at least 12 hours before using your keyboard again. If your computer is a laptop, wait the same length of time before turning it on again.

Putting key back on


I think you need to be a micro surgeon to successfully get the key back on. I know of few that have successfully gotten them back on.
The good news is that the keyboard is replaceable and not very expensive.
You can sometimes use an external, wireless keyboard as a workaround...

Sticking keyboard keys grrrrr no drink or anything


Get a can of compressed air and see if blowing on the keyboard will help. If not then Try a keyboard cleaning kit:

This keyboard is horrible. Several of the keys stick or will not work.
I called customer support which was not very helpful. They told me to take the batteries out of the keyboard then retry the keyboard and if it still did not work return it to the store I bought it from..
I like the set up of the keyboard but? to bad it does not work.
As I am typing this with my old keyboard because I can not use the the s520
