Key bounced off the keyboard.

Hey, I managed to push my z key too many times and now the key is loose. Right now I can still use the key but the key is sorta just floating there. How do i put it back the way it used to be? A few illustrations would be swell.

If its been popping off for a while, the best thing would be super glue... if you dont think you've put it on correctly, take it to your local PC store (they should do it for free, or want like 5,10 bucks), or you can buy a new keyboard.

Keyboard locked keyboard was playing perfectly all of a sudden lock need help

Several possibilities. 1) You may have hit the FN key and it may have toggled a lock. Press it again. If no result, press it one more time and go to the next tip. If your keyboard has in the function key row an image of the keyboard, that is a keyboard lock key using in conjustion with the FN key. It is a toggle. 2) You can try CTRL + ALT + DEL to pull up the task manager. But if your keyboard is locked, this option may not be available. Any reason you are not cold starting the computer? 3) If the keyboard has batteries, you can try swapping them out. 4) Check your cable connection. 5) Click Start, click the Setting Cog, go into Ease of Access, turn off any filter keys. 6) There is a possibility that debris under a key may be interfering with a contact. But if the entire keyboard is locked, that is not the problem. 7) If a soldering connection is loose internally, that could stop the keyboard from working. That would require careful soldering or replacement of the keyboard. 8) If using a remote keyboard, check your receiving plug to see if it is loose. I hope one of these suggestions helps.

How do I Pair Bluetooth keyboard bt8a

Hey there,

I bought the BT8A "bluetooth mini keyboard with touchpad" several months ago.

I succesfully managed to connect it to android and windows by pushing both
the blue "Fn" (function) key at the bottom left corner and
the corresponding blue operating system ("Android" / "Windows") at the top left corner
for three times.

Im not sure if you have to let go of the "Fn" key or keep it pushed only once and stay on it. While pushing it push 3x the operating system key.

Btw: the manual doesnt say anything about the connection / pairing procedure.

good luck.

Wireless Keyboard HP RK713A not typing correctly

Try going to Device Manager. Right click on the Keyboard and choose Properties. Click on Update Driver as it might find something (let it look online also). Reboot the computer. If that doesn't work, go to Device Manager, right click on the keyboard, choose Uninstall, and reboot the computer. When the computer starts up and sees the keyboard and loads a driver(s) for it, it might fix it. Good luck.

Why my asus a3000 keyboard not function correctly when i push U I O P the function is number when i push this key

NumLk (Numbers Lock) has been turned on. Pushing U I O P results in 4 5 6 * and pushing J K L results in 1 2 3. NumLk allows a block of keys on the right side of the keyboard to function as a numeric keypad to facilitate easier entry of numbers or numeric related data. There is an indicator that will be on when NumLk is on. To turn NumLk off, you need to push the key that has NumLk on it. It may be combined with a function key in which case you will need to hold down the Fn key while pushing the NumLk. If you manage to push the right key(s), the NumLk indicator should turn off and the keyboard will revert back to its normal operation (without the numeric keypad).

The shift key on my laptop keyboard has stopped working. I removed it to try to fix and now can't get it back on.

Hi Thanks for your question
In most laptop keyboards, attaching keys is pretty painless. Try to attach little plastics to the laptop first and once they're sitting clipped in try to attach the key. Just put the key in the right place and push it down. You should hear noticeable "click" once it's in. Do not hesitate to ask more questions in case you need further assistance. Fixya team will be more then happy to help you. Good luck.

Keyboard not responding just making a sound when hitting any key

The speaker will beep when a the Keyboard buffer is full. Many times this is due to a key that is stuck in the down position. With the computer off, run your fingers over all of the keys, and note that the keys "bounce" back up as you release the pressure from your fingers. Any key that is NOT returning to the "up" position is stuck in the down position. Examine that key for any foreign matter that could be wedged between the keys. You may be able to CAREFULLY pry the foreign matter from between the keys using a paper clip that has been opened to form a stiff wire. Also try pushing down on the surrounding keys at you attempt to remove the object. Once the object is removed, turn the keyboard upside down and shake. I think you'll be surprised at how much dirt and other "stuff" comes out from behind those keys. A small air compressor or can of compressed air will also accomplish this. Just be sure not to turn the can of air upside down or you will also expel the propellant from the can which can damage the keyboard and/or computer.

On another note, it is also a posibility that the membrane which holds the keys in the up position is broken which would require you to replace the keyboard itself.

Q key keps printing

Understand and use (or make sure they’re turned off) keyboard Accessibility Options. There are several types of help for those with typing difficulties, namely:
StickyKeys is an accessibility feature designed for people who have difficulty holding down two or more keys at a time. When a shortcut requires a key combination such as CTRL+P, StickyKeys will enable you to press one key at a time instead of pressing them simultaneously.
FilterKeys: You can set Windows to ignore keystrokes that occur in rapid succession, or keystrokes that are held down for several seconds unintentionally.
Bounce Keys: If you bounce your fingers on keys inadvertently, Bounce Keys will ignore repeated keystrokes until some time has passed. You choose the time period.
Repeat Keys and Slow Keys: The computer will ignore brief keystrokes according to the time limits you set. To access these Options and turn them off or on, go to your Control Panel– click Start >Settings >Control Panel >Accessibility Options.

By default it opens to the keyboard tab. If you are experiencing a sudden onset of bizarre typing behavior, your first step is to visit here and ensure that there are no checks in the three checkboxes, which indicates these Options are in use.
I mentioned that shortcuts ‘activate’ these features — such as Tab+Enter, and a couple of Alt+a letter– and so you may have turned them on unintentionally.
If you do have some difficulty with your typing, such as happens when a Mr. Arthur Itis comes to visit, or/and if you have tremors, here is where you can enable these aids and tweak their settings to get the most benefit from them. Click on the “Settings” button to see the choices. Below is the FilterKeys Settings dialogue.
filterkeysets.jpg
In the case mentioned, my client had first held down the Shift key long enough to activate FilterKeys (because a finger “rests” there). The lady was an extremely fast typist, and this setting ignored her strokes as being too short. Since she has no use for this tool, I recommended that she uncheck the top checkbox and disable the activating shortcut.
sksettings.jpg
This screenshot shows the settings for StickyKeys, and unless you have trouble holding down more than one key at the same time — such as Ctrl+Alt+Del to activate Task Manager — I suggest you uncheck the top checkbox here as well.

My keyboard keeps typing numbers where there is letters on my laptop, can you help?

hey there, I am not sure what kind of keyboard you have but try pushing the "fn" button or press "fn" and num lock at the same time or just num lock by itself. If you don't have num lock, you may need to plug in an external keyboard. let me know how you make out.
