Dear Friend,
you have to disassemble your laptop for this

1 To disassemble carefully remove the keys with a small screwdriver and place in a container. DO NOT use excessive force. Remove all the keys and place in a separate container.

2 Clean the keyboard with cotton swabs lightly dampened (moisturized) with water. Replace these often and be sure they are only slightly damp. If they are too wet the excess water will contaminate the keyboard. Start cleaning. This will clean all water soluble contaminants like Coca-Cola, coffee, and sugar residue. You must clean each and every key space, inside and out, this is critical since this is where the key touches and moves.

Now wipe out full keyboard with paper napkins and then place your laptop in sunlight (3-5 minutes depens on sun) to absorbe the moisture left on the keys or keyboard.

Now assemble your keyboard again as it is earlier. (QWERTY format : for that click a photograph and copy it to your desktop so that it will not be a problem when assembling)

Thank you

Gagan Gupta

Product key for microsoft office home and student 2007

If your product key does not work, as it happened to me as well, your warranty has expired. You can go to and buy a new warranty, or it won't work no matter what you try. I found a online tech support company that helps me with difficult issues you may find helpful, They ask a fee of course, but work remotely on your laptop over the telephone to solve computer problems. Good Luck, they helped me! and I also got a security program downloaded from my provider for free. I have a emachines E625 laptop too. Julie

Emachine laptop Fn key locked

I think the only solution is to phisically remove the key from the keyboard - VERY gently, in order not to break or send flying the pieces to which the key is attached. The little rubber button underneath might be squished below those pieces.
