Keyboard is shot. They do that due to the heat laptops generate. I've probably replaced 200 laptop keyboards in the past 5 years. You can buy one on ebay for about $21.00. http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-HP-COMPAQ-Presario-2100-2500-Keyboard-317443-001_W0QQitemZ190124162270QQihZ009QQcategoryZ116289QQcmdZViewItem Ray

Shift key not functioning.

I had the same problem with SHIFT ASDF
After months of hopeless searching I just tried something simple which finally worked. (Windows XP)
Start--Control Panel--Keyboard--Speed Tab
Move the Repeat Delay slider button to the far left and click apply
Repeat for the other 2 sliders
Move Repeat Delay to the 3rd notch...click apply
Move Repeat Rate to half way...click apply
Move Cursor Blink rate up to nearly fast...click apply
Click OK
All my SHIFT keys worked from then on.
Hope this helps other people

When i press shift +asdfxcvb keys are not working in my laptop acer

You may need to clean the keys or you may have motherboard issues. Do the keys work on the lower case and not on the upper case or both? If this is the problem your having your board maybe on its way out and need replacing. Hope this helps.

My upper case S KEY WILLL only work if I have cap locks on. can you help me? ' Im using the MX5500 keyboard. thank you. Greg

Have you tried cleaning the keyboard, especially blowing it out with compressed air. Have you tried to use both shift button to see whether or not the problem is isolated to one shift button or both.Have you tried other letter with the same shift button that the letter "s" is having problems with. If this is islolated to just the letter "s" with the shift buttons then more than likely you will just have to use caps lock or buy another keyboard.

SHIFT KEYS NOT WORKING PROPERLY

Please try to deactivate the Fn (function) key. That will help you get rid of your problem. Press Fn key + Numlock key once and try again. You can also try pressing the Fn key once and type letters in any word processor program with the key combination everytime you press the Fn key once. E.g. open the notepad, press Fn once and after that press ) with Shift.

If you have problem, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

I HAVE A NEW ACER 5517 AND CAN'T GET THE @ KEY TO WORK???

First, does the #2 key work? I assume thats the same key as your at button.
If it does, if you hold the shift key and press 3, do you get the pound sign?

if the 2 key does not work, then the problem is with your #2 button. if the # key does not work, then the problem is with your shift key.

Try the right shift key, blow air into those keys, if it still does not work, you will need to replace the keyboard.

it will be covered under warranty.

thanks adi

Wireless keyboard will not type numbers. Only the corresponding symbols will show up. The shift key is not down nor is it stuck down.

Although Shift key is not pressed down, maybe the electronics are messed up due to shock if you dropped the keyboard. Turn off Caps Lock, go to text editor of your choice and try to type numbers together with some letters. If you get big letters, then Shift button is pressed down.

In both cases, just to make sure, try your keyboard on some other computer and see if it works.

If you find out that Shift button is always pressed, than it is a hardware problem that may or may not be fixable.

Shift Keys not working properly on ACER notebook

The 8042 keyboard controller has been integrated into one chip with other I/O functions so I doubt you can replace it as a single IC and I'm afraid that is what has failed. It is an extremely rare failure but I guess it has to happen some time. The keyboard is kind of a polled matrix so it only takes the failure of a single line to bollix things up.
I think what you are talking about here is a motherboard exchange or repair.
