Press Fn + Numlock. You have the number lock on, but laptops don't have a number pad. So it re-assigns these keys to overlay some existing ones. Once your number lock is turned off you should be ok.

Hi Lornadeee, Sounds like you have the Set Access and Defaults activated. Click on your Start button and look for that program and click on it. You can Unactivate it there. Good Luck.

SOURCE: keyboard malfunction

Under the keyboard is a ribbon connecting the keyboard to the motherboard. Use the fabric tab a gently pull it off and plug it back in again.
You didn't mention your particular model, so this is only general info. You'll need only two tools, a straight slot and a phillip's screw driver. the phillips is pretty small. Understand warranty issues may arise...I am not sure if you're still under warranty. I will give you a link to look at and show you how to do the operation...It really not that bad, take your time and be gentle.. One more thing...on the backside check to see if all of the screws are snug. Please leave rating...thank you

How to replace the keybord on an advent 9517 laptop


Advent laptops are manufactured by DSG International, which owns the names to other name-brand computers such as Acer and Hewlett-Packard.
The Advent laptop keyboard has integrated mouse touch-pad functions that allow you to move the mouse around the screen with your fingers.
Function keys at the top of the board contain alternate ways to exit and enter software applications.

Function Keys
The Advent laptop keyboards function keys are "hot keys" that act as shortcuts to applications and functions on the computer. The function keys sometimes don't work and won't carry out the function assigned to the key. This problem is considered a hardware malfunction, and the solution is to replace the keyboard or use a universal serial bus (USB) keyboard for the laptop. b> Malfunctioning Keys b> Advent keyboards are made of thin plastic. Striking the keys too hard will cause the keys to break or stick awkwardly in the housing unit that supports the keyboard. When these keys get stuck in the housing unit, a pin tool can easily set the keys back on track. If there are too many keys that get stuck or broken, you can purchase a replacement Advent keyboard and have it installed. b> Mouse Problems b> The mouse is located at the bottom of the Advent keyboard but is connected to the keyboard data strip that sends information through the keyboard unit to move the mouse on the screen. If the mouse malfunctions, check the connector under the keyboard to see if it is loose. A loose connector can cause the mouse or other keys not to function on the laptop. b> Electrical Shortage b> An electrical shortage can cause an Advent keyboard not to work properly. A shortage is when the main board of the laptop is not getting the voltage needed to efficiently operate the computer. When this happens, certain devices underperform or become inoperable. Check to see if your power supply is extremely hot or if your system heats up around the keyboard. If so, replace the electrical adapter. b> Wire Damage From Keystrokes b> The wire that is responsible for the liquid crystal display (LCD) on the Advent laptop extends from under the middle of the keyboard to the LCD display unit. This wire is unprotected and can be damaged from striking the keys over the wire. When this happens, the display will not show the correct colors or the screen will go black. To eliminate this problem, purchase a keyboard cover that fits the keys to relieve the pressure between the keyboard and video cable. b> Keyboard Drivers b> Problems have been reported with upgrades from Windows Vista to Windows 7. Windows 7 will not recognize the system drivers that operate the Advent keyboard. To get the keyboard to work, you must load the old drivers in Windows 7 Safe mode, which is used anytime there is a hardware or software discrepancy. Advent keyboard drivers can be loaded from the original restore CD, which is included with the system at the time of purchase.

Function key not working


ASUSTek Computer Inc., or simply Asus, has been a leading innovator in computer hardware technology for the last 20 years. Taking the same precision and care in its hardware manufacturing, Asus has been making quality laptops, desktops and servers for the last several years. With a selection of on-board functions in their laptop series, certain keys can malfunction during system updates and software changes. Use the function key (Fn) located at the bottom right of your keyboard in combination with any of the F keys located at the top of your keyboard. If none or only some of the combined command keys work together, then there is an issue with the ATK Drivers. An update of these drivers will eradicate the issue. Navigate your browser to the Asus support site, linked in the references section below. This website will provide the tools necessary for driver update. Select the appropriate products from the three drop-down menus at the top right of the support page. For the first box, select "notebook," the second box select the series notebook that you are using and for the third box, select the corresponding model. With all three selections, hit the search box located underneath these product selections. When the popup window appears, choose your corresponding operating system. Once chosen, hit search. A list of file types will appear with corresponding selections for driver updates. Click on the "+" box located next to the file type ATK. This will generate a list of all the appropriate driver types associated with this particular function. Locate the driver description "ATK Hotkey Utility" and click on "Global(DLM)". This will open another pop-up and your driver download will begin. Once the selected device driver has finished downloading, a prompt to launch the application will appear in the popup box of the download manager. Select "launch" to unpack the zip files using the Winrar software. Make note of the folder in which the unpacked driver setup is sent. Locate the Setup file that was just unpacked and double-click for activation. This will initiate driver setup of the driver that has just been downloaded and restore the function of the Fn key. Follow the instructions once setup has initialized. Once setup is complete, you will be asked to restart your system so that all changes and driver updates can take effect. Close all programs and perform this final step to complete driver setup. The function key on the Asus keyboard should now be restored to its intended use. Hope this helps.

Few keya are not working


To determine if the keyboard or the keyboard controller is faulty, plug an USB keyboard into the USB port on your laptop. If all the keys are OK on the USB keyboard then the laptop's keyboard is faulty and needs to be replaced. If the USB keyboard also malfunctions then the keyboard controller chip on the motherboard is faulty, then the motherboard needs to be replaced, but this may not be a cost effective solution.
A replacement keyboard for your model laptop maybe available from this WEB site.Keyboard replacement, LCD screens for mobile phones, Ipods and computer equipment. http://www.yallstore.com/index.php?main_page=advanced_search_result&search_in_description=1&zenid=1lrjst3ncshlb4c7frn9bev3c3&keyword=keyboards

Several of my keys on my Asus netbook are not working. What could be the problem?


The keyboard is possibly the problem on this issue, try and go into safemode see if the keys will not function as well from that point, if the keys still do not function in safemode then this is a possible keyboard hardware issue.
But if the key respond in safemode, reinstalling windows may fix the problem.

Keyboard malfunction. i have to use the on screen-keyboard. here is the same text from the actual keyboard. 2eyb6ard 0a3f4nct56n. 5 have t6 4se the 6n screen 2eyb6ard.


It looks as if your function (fn) key has jammed. I would carefully pull up on the key to try and get it to unstick. If you can't do it with your fingers, do it carefully with a small screwdriver.

How turn on keyboard backlight on my asus laptop


If you are asking about toggling the intensity of the backlit keyboard, just use the Function key and F3 to decrease the intensity and F4 to increase the intensity.

If it's not working at all, make sure you have the "ATK Package" installed. If so, uninstall and reinstall the ATK Package - that fixed mine.

If you don't have the ATK Package, find it at asus.com, install it, and run it.

Trouble seperating top cover from base/mobo / asus f3s notebook


Have you removed the keyboard, sometimes there is a screw under the keyboard that holds the top and bottom of the case together.
Most laptops have clips/indents that clips top and bottom half of the case together. Start on one side, preferrably at an opening where the CD/DVD drive is located and gently apply pressure to separate the case along that edge. Once you free a catch/clip start working along that edge and continuing around to each side of the case.
