It seems to be a hardware problem and it would be better if you just take it to any technician instead of repairing on your own. Sometime microcontroller in the keyboard went wrong and such happens. You could try working by on screen keyboard if its very urgent to type. If possible try to uninstall our keyboard drivers and then restart the system. after that plug the keyboard again and windows will detect it as new hardware. May be it could work. Good Luck

What is 3rd light top right


Hallo,
The 3rd led it is light when pressed Scroll Lock key on keyboard, now it is not more used but in Windows and programs but it is still constructed on keyboard as a standard.
On construction this key was used in correlation with Ctrl key -system properties, and also when it is press the arrows works a page-up or page-down.
But now it is more common to use the wheel from mouse to scroll down or up a page. ;-)

How can i tell if my keyboard is backlit in inspiron 15r?


If you press any key on the keyboard, the back light should come on automatically. If not, hold down (Fn) function key and press "right arrow" with a blue florescent symbol until the back light is lit. Pressing the "right arrow" key while holding down the (Fn) key lits the back light and can also reduce, increase the light.
Hope this helps

How do you change brightness on screen on emachines notepads


Look for the "Fn" key at the lower left of the keyboard. Hold this down and look at the "F" or function keys at the top of the keyboard, look for the symbol that looks like the sun or light shining, there may be one key that simply toggles through the settings or there may be two keys, one for brightness and then another for dimming. Most functions will be printed in blue on a notebook keyboard, so also look at the arrow keys to the right, there maybe brightness indicators on the up arrow as well as the down arrow. When ever you want to perform a certain function with these keys, you have to hold down the "Fn" key while pressing the function key.

My Toshiba Satellite Pro A300-GR laptop wont type the letters o l k i and numbers eight and nine as well as comma - stop - down arrow not working - right arrow not working and delete key not working - also...


You have Number Lock set on your PC - Have a look for a key top right hand side, it will have something like NumLck written on the KEY - you may need to use that Key in combination with the FN key - bottom left of keyboard - there should be a light somewhere on the keyboard which goes on/off as you toggle the NumLck key. You should see different coloured numbers on the key s*()UIOPJKLM These are the numbers and symbols that will be displayed when the NumLock is used

Right arrow key permanently 'pressed' down


Only solution here is to unplug the keyboard from the mother board. Just take apart the case and look for the ribbon cable going from the keyboard to the motherboard, and take it out.

Cat stepped on button a faded my screen how to correct


You'll need a 2 button combination for this fix. All the cat did was adjust the screen brightness. Look at the bottom of your keyboard on the left side for a button that has Fn in light blue -this is the Function key. It controls the other keys that have a second function on them also in blue. On your right side, you'll see keys that look like a sun or lightbulb depending on your model. By holding down the Fn key and tapping either key, you will increase or decrease the brightness of the screen.
Let me know how this works for you and rate this tip accordingly. Thanks for using Fixya.com.
