Keyboard not responding or typing random letters

I just cleaned my keyboard by taking off the keys, blowing it out, using a slightly damped lysol tollette and putting the keys back together while word was on to double check what keys were what. It seemed to work fine but a couple hours later it randomly starts typing succesives k and keys stop responding (mostly j y l and backspace). I dont know much about hardware so I dont even know where to start to fix this problem. I have a Toshiba Satellite, almost 2 yrs old, on Windows XP.

You have stuck keys from when you removed to clean. Remove the stuck keys and see if it works OK when you press the rubber cap instead of key
The back space one may have a link under it if it is a wide one ensure it is fitted correctly

The letter Z key is not responding. I don't know how to fix it

Although having a laptop is certainly convenient, the all-in-one peripheral scheme (mouse, keyboard and speakers) can make individual repairs difficult, and a non-working keyboard can ruin the value of the entire package. However, there are some practical steps you can take to fix a laptop keyboard.

1.Diagnose the problem. When you press a key on your laptop keyboard, does it get stuck? Does the computer respond to your inputs? In almost all of these cases, the solution will lie in opening up your notebook's keyboard. However, to prevent extra work, press every key (do this in a word-processing program) and see which keys are affected. If every single key on a keyboard does not respond, you might have a software issue, which may require specialized help.
2.Clean the area around the keys that are not working. A damp lint-free cloth should be used to clean the surface of the affected keys. If you have stuck keys, use a Q-tip to clean under them, but take care not to pry the keys up, as this could result in further damage to your keyboard.
3.Remove the keys that are not working. Do this by grabbing some fingernail clippers and pulling out the hook-like fingernail cleaner extension. Use the small hook to gently pull the key up , which will expose a collapsible plastic hinge (commonly known as a key retainer) as well as a small rubber circular piece. Gently lift both of these pieces out of the keyboard.
4.Wipe the keyboard sensors clean with a dry cloth. The sensors are the little silver foil-like strips you see after your key components have been removed. Be very careful wiping these down--if they are damaged, they are very expensive to replace. Just gently dab it with a dry lint-free cloth to remove any dust/crumbs/particles that are interfering with your keyboard's functionality. Do not moisten the cloth with water or cleaning solution, as this heightens the risk for damage.
5.Reassemble and replace the keys. Simply fit the key retainer as well the little rubber piece together in the way you found them and then firmly press the key cap back in place.
6.Test your keyboard. Open a word-processing program and then press the replaced keys. If they still don't work, try restarting your computer, or activating a system restore point (to ensure that the problem is not software-related). If the keyboard is still not working, then you may want to think about taking the computer to a repair shop or replacing it altogether. (Keyboard repairs are very expensive.)

Hi, my acer aspire 4930's keyboard not functioning correctly.. when i press letter "a" it appear as "A1" same as "Q" appears "Q1".. pls help me


Try cleaning the keyboard with a clean, dry paintbrush just in case there is anything stuck under the keys. Once you have cleaned the keyboard try typing keys to see if it does the same thing. If the keys type as normal then you have resolved the problem.
If the keys still type other characters along with the letter then there is a strong possibility that the keyboard needs to be replaced.
This usually happens when something has been spilt on the keyboard causing it to type random characters or the characters directly above or below them.

Seeing as the keyboard is a laptop keyboard you can use a wireles/wired keyboard or you can use the on-screen keyboard if you can't get the keyboard to work.

If there is anything else please post back.

Good luck.

Hi all, I want to clean my laptop's keyboard. Unfortunately the keys won't come out... I have an Emachines D725 laptop and I'm not sure if they keys are not removable... If they aren't, how else could I...

While the unit is off and the battery removed.

Use a vacuum cleaner to get any loose material that is hidden in the depths of your keyboard. A vacuum cleaner will get most of the dust etc...
You may also use a paint brush to lightly get out any other bits, and or a toothpick.
Wipe the keyboard with a slightly damp cloth. Remember you don't want to get any water into the laptop. So slightly damp will do.

Thanks and take care!

My keyboard keys stick or when i type sometimes the letters will not type How do i clean my keyboard

You can buy a can of compressed air to blow out all the dirt.
To do a complete clean you can take the screws out underneith and give the key matrix a good clean with some rubbing alcahol.
NOTE: be aware that some keyboards have keys that are not attached to a frame; i wouldn't bother cleaning this way if you find this

My right mouse button is sticking. How do I take the logitec apart to clean?

I would just attempt to blow it out with canned air...rather than take it apart. If it is a ball type (not laser) you can twist the small collar where the ball is, and look at the rollers for dirt and foreign objects again use some dust off or a slightly damp clothe and clean it and the ball itself.
Hope this helped a bit, good luck please leave a rating, thank you kindly

Keyboard not responding or typing random letters

Sounds like the liquid has acted like a glue. You will need to get a cotton bud and dip it into some clean water. Try and clean the hole again and see if it still playing up. Also restart the computer and retry word to see if the same thing is happening.
