Certain keys won't function on keyboard

Certain keys on the keyboard of my Vaio VGC-M1 have stopped working suddenly. I cannot use backspace, delete, 'e', 't', and a few other keys. I don't think anything has been spilled on it, what could the problem be?

Could be that the connector from the keyboard to the mainboard is crooked. Try taking the keyboard off and wiggling the connector from the keyboard to the board so that it is a snugger fit.

At all? anything caught underneth them? Unsnapping keys is pretty easy once you get the hang of it. Give that a try. if it's still not working check your device manager to be sure.

Where is the delete button?


There isn't a 'delete' button like you'd find on the extended keyboard, if you hold function while pressing backspace it will function as a delete key. (My MacBook's backspace is labeled 'delete' but is a standard backspace.)

Answer: Function + Backspace = Delete

I hope this is helpful and works for you. If I didn't fully answer your question, please let me know and I will do my best to add or clarify my response. If this was helpful, please rate my answer with 5 thumbs up.

Where is the delete button on a french keyboard!


In wordprocessing or email the backspace key deletes the previous charachter and isnot the same as the Delete key which deletes the next charachter.

On my girlfriend's french pc the delete key is marked "Suppr". It works to delete the next character and also for the "executive override" function which will reboot an old pc or get you to Task Manager in windows.

Cannot type certain letters


Hi,

Verify that the key is not working in more than one application. It is possible that some keys may not be used in all programs. This generally always applies to the Function keys F1 through F12. If not all keys are working in all programs and you have Windows, attempt to boot the computer to a MS-DOS prompt or Safe Mode and test the keyboard in DOS.

If it appears that a substance has been spilt into the computer.

If any type of liquid has been spilt within the keyboard you can attempt to clean it . however, because of the dramatic decrease of cost with computer keyboards, it is recommended that you simply replace the keyboard to help prevent frustration and possibility of failure again in the future.

Thanks,
CF

Keyboard Not working


Hi the problem you describe usually accurse when you have more data on your system than your memory can handle so it tries to compensate in so doing other functions such as the key board get effected. Look at what memory your system is running if it is less than 384 you may need to upgrade to say 512.Hope this helps

Could be that you just need to clean it. Use a air spraying tool to clean out the keyboard. You could also try taking these keys off the keyboard, clean it, and then put the keys back in. Shouldn't be that hard to do. I wouldn't take it in to get it fixed though as you can pay for a new keyboard for less.
