Many keys in keyboard not working HP G62-b80SS laptop

Question: Many keys in keyboard not working HP G62-b80SS laptop

HP G62-b80SS laptop
Many keys in the keyboard aren't working. I've successfully replaced the motherboard for this laptop because it went dead because of some dampness trickling going inside and is now otherwise working fine. It's been abandoned for 7 months. I've reseated the keyboard connector and cleaned it with a contact cleaner.
I guess I need to get a new keyboard, am I right?
Thanks!

I had a problem with my laptop which is certain key on my keyboard is not functioning. The weird is, it happened without a reason. because after I shutdown doing my work when I turn it on again, I discovered my "s", "d", "g", "h", "\", "m", " left shift", "caps lock" and "~" key did not work at all. I try taking the key off, cleaning underneath, but nothing seems to be working. After that I try to use usb keyboard and it seems the key can be entered. So I thought my hardware is the problem. than I replace into the new one, but still having the same problem. I already waste my money buying new keyboard. Does any one happen to know what sort of problem this is and how I would go about fixing it? Is it related to the registry. My laptop is Acer aspire 4740G, ram 4GB, processor i3 2.4GHz. I hope someone can help me to solve this problem.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Please help me because I have been trying for 3 hours now and want to cry haha. I used my laptop last night and the cat did walk over it, as she usually does so it may have been something she has done or just a coincidence this has happened.

I just went to use my laptop tonight and could not log in because I noticed that my A key was not working which is in my password so used the onscreen key board, I then discovered probably half of my other keys also are not working!!!

I have uninstalled the keyboard in the device manager and nothing, I have even installed Unbuntu to see if it would work in there as one person suggested. I have turned the laptop off, took the battery and power cable out, held the power button for 60 seconds, put it all back together and started it up, nothing.

I have stolen my boyfriends keyboard from his desktop PC and that is working fine. I just do not know what to try next if anything or if to just go ahead and back my stuff up and reinstall windows (using windows 10).

I do not understand why it is only some keys as surely if it was the actual keyboard then it all would not be working which is why I think it might be a windows thing maybe, but then why does the USB keyboard work fine.

Thanks for any help and let me know if you need anymore information

I'm having a keyboard issue.
- Ok so I have an Acer Aspire V5-471G laptop. N its currently running windows 10 and I downloaded the anniversary update in september(don't remember).
- But after the second week of October(i think, can't remember) certain keys on my keyboard have just stopped working for no reason at all.
- Specifically the letters:- W, E, R, Y and the TAB key and recently I noticed the Windows Key is also not working.
- They do not work at all and nothing happens when I press these keys.
- As far I know the rest of the keys are working fine coz I did an online keyboard test(or maybe some key I dont use aren't working n I missed it)
- I don't know if the keys have stopped working bcoz of downloading the anniversary update or something else.
- I have tried removing the keys and cleaning under them with a soft-haired paintbrush coz I thought maybe there was dust under them that was obstructing the working of the keys but that dint change anything n keys were still not working after cleaning under them..
- Also 2 days after I found this problem, I did a system restore to a restore point that I had created about 5-7 days ago(in the restore point I created, everything including the keys was working fine thats y I decided to use the system restore). But that dint work either, the sys restore rolledback some updates but that was all; the keys were still not working..

Hello Sir,

I seem to be having a similar problem. Only the keys, Home, End, Right & Left direction keys arent responding. An external USB keyboard key is working. This led me to believe it could be a hardware issue (moisture etc.) however the new keyboard i order for my vostro 1014 (dell) laptop had the same issue, hence leading me to believe it is a software issue i.e. driver issue.

I have tried updating my driver it tells me its up to date. Have tried uninstalling it and on restart windows reinstalls my driver. I tried going on windows forum (Microsoft) and they were rambling about a possible Hotfix replacement. Please advise and let me know what do i do.

Answer:keyboard keys not working on HP Pavilion g6 notebook laptop

What system update, windows update, a driver update? This is pretty vague.Could the update be coincidence and the keys are broken? If you boot to safe mode with command prompt try them then.Maybe the keys themselves are damages in which case you need a new or new old stock keyboard.That's what I would do, test the keys in a command prompt window and if they don't work there get a new keyboard.Do you have access to a usb keyboard to see if it's the keys or some weird OS thing?

Hello ,
I have Dell Inspiron 3543. purchased on august 2015 . Its speaker and some keys of keyboard are not working . I updated all the drivers. I did Laptop's factory restore step. But none worked.  
I had shown the issue to few hardware engineers for issue confirmation. They all said It has keyboard and speaker issues. Contact to dell support as one year is not completed.  But Dell support is saying the product is not under warranty and contact dealer.  I contacted dealer. Dealer said we have updated the warranty.
To whom should I contact now? How my issue will get resolved?

My computer is an HP Pavilion G7 laptop, Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit. I've recently went through a lot of problems with this computer, specifically a corrupt user profile, so I ended up doing...a factory reset or something in that nature that fixed the problem, but it wiped everything off my computer. Before the reset, occasionally my keyboard would just disable and go into this mode where certain keys opened a variety of programs, and I had to shut off/restart the computer to fix it. But the keys worked fine, it was just when the keyboard went crazy was when the keys didn't work.

But now, a week or two after the reset, I went on my computer and the home keys and the enter key were disabled, and I did some online research and a lot say that the keyboard is shot and you have to replace it. The strangest thing was, this morning actually, I went on the computer and went to type and found the home keys were actually working. I left for a bit to start my morning and then came back, woke the computer up and turned on the internet, and found the keys disabled again.

I explained that story because it could be something involved with the computer's sleep function or its internet, as a maybe.

Answer:Home Keys on laptop keyboard disabled/not working properly

firstly I would recommend downloading and installing all of the latest drivers for you laptop. especially any chipset and or ones directly related to the keyboard (most laptop keyboards use default windows ones so theres nothing to update, but laptops with hot keys and multimedia keys tend to use their own)

something else you can do is plug in a usb keyboard and test it, if the same keys on a usb keyboard dont work its not hardware related.
simply googling G7 keyboard throws up hundreds of user complaints so its not exactly a first time event theyve known to fail.

I had purchased an MD2614u laptop from Gateway which originally came with Windows Vista, but I got the upgrade for Windows 7 and dual booted Ubuntu Jaunty Jackalope.

With all of these operating systems (32bit AND 64bit) AND before the operating system loads, my fn keys work.

I have recently downgraded both operating systems to just Windows XP, which admittedly, was never meant to work with this computer - but I have gotten MOST drivers to work. The main problem I'm having is that after XP loads, my fn keys no longer work as expected. Some combinations still work, but not the important ones.

I'm mainly worried about the brightness combinations, but other combinations aren't working either.

If I change my brightness before Windows XP loads, the brightness setting stays for the session, but when my computer is restarted the brightness goes back to 70%..this is just too dim and it's killing my eyes.

I've also checked the BIOS settings as well as looked in Windows XP's Power Settings..I couldn't find anything that said my monitor wasn't at 100% brightness.

Thanks .

I recently (w/in last 2 weeks) purchased and received an E545 and after less than 8 hours of use the keyboard is extremely loose on the right hand side, primarily where the number pad sits but also extend into the right side of the alpha keyboard.  By losse, I mean that it doesn't sit well and when you press down on a key in that area of the keyboard, the entire right side of keyboard depresses.  ti's very disconcerting when typing and also extremely loud, which is an issue since I use the machine in meetings to take notes.  
 
I've not seen much in searching, except for threads that are several years old.  I wanted to get some user input before contacting Lenovo, as I'm sure it will be better advice and less of a hassle.
 
Many thanks in advance for any help.

Answer:E545 keyboard problem - many keys not working - loose keyboard cable

Hi,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
I?m sorry to hear that the entire keyboard of your Lenovo ThinkPad E545 depresses on key presses.
 
From what you have posted, it sounds like a keyboard flex. Keyboard flexing occurs if the board supporting the keys is not rigid or if the design of the keyboard is faulty. For good keyboards, the effect shouldn't be noticeable.
 
If you feel excessive flexing in your keyboard, try to reseat the keyboard. Since your system is under warranty, I would strongly suggest you to take assistance from Lenovo technical support.

As I wrote in the title, my Shift and Alt keys stopped working for keyboard shortcuts. However, the Shift key still works when capitalizing letters.

I've been dealing with this problem off/on for the past two weeks and haven't been able to figure it out. I've gone into Ease of Access features and turned on/off all of the available options (Mouse Keys, Sticky Keys, Toggle Keys, Filter Keys). I've pressed Shift for 8 seconds, and pressed it 5 times, and still haven't been able to correct it.

Thank you in advance for any help offered.

Possibly helpful additional information:
I've got a Spanish/Latin American keyboard layout installed in addition to the US English keyboard layout. I toggle back and forth with Left Alt + Shift (which is how I noticed my Shift key stopped working).
I play a game whose controls rely on a lot of Shift key pressing and holding.

When was the last time you used a can of air cleaner on the keyboard? If it isn't from contact wear often keyboards tend to get loaded up with dust and debris!

One example of that is having any snacks onhand around a pc where little bits get passed along from your fingers onto and under the keys themselves. Keyboards are known to get loaded up fast with any foods present!

I have a Dell 7737 laptop and from time to time it develops a firmware glitch where random keys stop working for both BIOS Setup and Operating Systems. After such thing happens neither shutdown (Full shutdown / Fast Boot disabled) nor restart get the keyboard back to a normal state. At this point the only workarround is to disconnect the AC power cord and then either drain the battery or physically remove it.
This laptop's battery cover is not designed for daily removal and it is starting to get loose because of this BIOS bug.
I am running BIOS version A14 but this bug was present since I purchased the laptop with BIOS version A07. Sometimes I cannot even type my password because the random keys that stop working match those it uses.
Please Dell could you provide a BIOS hotfix for this annoying issue?

I have a Dell M1330 Laptop that has served me quite well for several years. I just replaced the keyboard the other day and everything is working fine, except that the new keyboard has a slightly different layout than the old keyboard did. For example, with the new keyboard all the F1, F2, F3, etc.. keys have function secondaries on them like multimedia, brightness, antennae toggle, and so on. My old keyboard didnt have most of these and so when I attempt to use them on the new keyboard they simply do not work. In fact when I use function keys as if I still had my old keyboard installed the functions work, which means it is the software interpretation of the keys that I need to change. Does anybody know how I can fix this so that the keys of the new keyboard and functions match what the keys actually say?

Another thing to add is that some of the new function keys on the new laptop such as antennae toggle were not on my last keyboard at all because they are softkeys on the case of my computer, and I am not sure a function like that would be able to be added to the keyboard mapping at all, but I'm not sure.

Also, I would prefer to not install third party software to accomplish this, even if it means I need to delve into the registry manually. Can anybody help??

If one look at the keyboard, these keys are just below each other, maybe giving a hint to someone who knows about keyboards what the problem might be.

its happened first time ,i didn't do any thing and its solved it self somehow maybe windows update' and it came back again after Windows reset contacted msi support but none of thier solutions worked so i let it for a week or so and its solved it self another time !!!
now its back again I tried what they said but nothing helped they say it is a drivers problem
thier solution where
"download/install latest touchpad driver and SteelSeries Engine 3 from following GE62 website"
"help download and reinstall all drivers and utilities from GE62 website"
"I advise you to restore to factory default, you can use F3 recovery to restore OS. Reboot and press F3 while you see MSI logo, it will enter restore options. Choose Troubleshoot, and depends on your requirment to choose "Refresh" or "Reset" your PC"
"First, power off the notebook,remove the AC power,and use a straightened paperclip to insert the battery reset hole and reset the notebook.I attached a picture to inform you where is the battery reset hole.

Hey guys,

(Damn, Only I know how am I writing this post. It's so damn frustrating.)

Ok well here goes:

I was using a ps2 keyboard for a while now. But suddenly, certain keys stopped working.

I restarted, uninstalled the keyboard but to no avail.

I had a brand new usb keyboard lying with me, so I thought it's finally time to use it. But the same problem persisted though this time a different combination of keys not working.

I tried both the keyboard on a friend's PC and they both work like charm.

Now, I thought may be I should try windows repair, but I realized that the keyboard keys aren't even functioning in BIOS.

It's really irritating. I am having a feeling that this problem is mobo related (hence posting in this section).

I am currently using both keyboards to write this post, but yet there are few keys which aren't working on both. (so I actually have to copy/paste 'em from character map).

This whole thing is ridiculously painful. So please help.

Looking forward.

Thanks in advance!

I am using XP 64bit and XP pro (dual boot). Problem shows on both.

My mobo: Abit Ip35 pro

Answer:Keyboard keys not working

Try using the Windows on-screen keyboard. If you are seeing a space where your spacebar should be in the on-screen keyboard, then you'll need to change your keyboard layout back to US QWERTY (or whatever layout you type on.)

If the OSK looks fine, then check this page for help. If you've attached an external keyboard to your laptop in the past, refer to the first post. If not, you can try to attempt the second post.

First of all, I want to say that I am no wiz with computers.Laptop: Lenovo Yoga 2 11. Windows 10 installed about 5 months ago.h and g keys, as well as ctrl c and v for copy and paste, and underscore key do not work at all using my keyboard. Onscreen keyboard works, allowing me to write h and g now: very annoying and time consuming! I've restarted, tried typing in safe mode, keys still did not work, turned on and off sticky keys, did not make a difference. I've tried shortcut keys, nothing worked not even temporarily. I did not do system restore because it said I would have to reinstall a lot of programs including microsoft word, and I just paid over 100 dollars for it and I am confused by what would happen? Cleaned keyboard, no dirt or anything stuck under keys. I am pretty upset, just applying to jobs, and writing resumes/cover letters is hard. If anyone can help I would appreciate it so much. I've done research online and it seems I'm definitely not the only one with this problem. Can't seem to fix it. Help please!Tara.

Answer:keyboard some keys not working

Hi nirmit1105,
Check if the keys are stuck on keyboard. Another step you can try is to check the keyboard functionality in safe mode and see if it exhibits the same behavior there as well. 

Restart the computer.
Tap the F8 key on the keyboard during the boot process until you see the Windows Advanced Options Menu on the screen.
Select “Safe Mode with Networking” from the menu using the arrow keys on the keyboard and then press the <Enter> key.
Select the user account at the log in screen.
Try using your computer and see if the issue persists there.  

In case of keyboard, you may also try using a USB keyboard and see if it works. If issue persists, remove the USB keyboard and use an Onscreen keyboard to see if the issue persists with that as well. 

To use On screen keyboard:

Choose Start/Windows logo → Control Panel → Ease of Access → Ease of Access Center.
Click the Start On-Screen Keyboard button.
Test out the on-screen keyboard input in any application where you can enter text.
Click Options, select the Turn on numeric key pad check box, and then click OK.
Open a notepad and try typing on that by clicking on the keys of On screen keyboard.


Note: To use keystroke combinations (such as Ctrl+Z), click the first key (in this case, Ctrl) and then click the second key (Z). You don’t have to hold down the first key as you do with a regular keyboard.

Hi,

I have an old laptop which I haven't used for a while, but want to start using it. However, the '1' and 'q' keys have stopped working. It hasn't taken a knock and I have removed the two keys, which were on a hinge, and could see no visable reason why they may have stoppped e.g. dirt (nothing more technical than that). The two keys when compressed do feel identical to the others, no signs of anything suck in there. Does anyone have any ideas? And if this type of thing is fixable?

Thanks

Answer:2 keys not working on keyboard?

Keyboards seem to drive their keys in diagonal rows. IE:
1qaz
2wsx
3edc, etc.

Since your 2 keys are consecutive in a diagonal row, we get the connection. The most suggested things are physically cleaning the membrane under the keys, and keyboard drivers. I have never owned a laptop, so I'm not sure you can just delete the keyboard driver, and let windows redetect. Or, just remove, and install the currect driver. Hopefully someone with laptop experience will be along with more info. A Guy

Welcome chinwoman to the windows 7 forums.

Based on your trouble shooting so far, it looks like your notebook keyboard is toast.


there could be a single wire from your keyboard that has a loose connection or broken off.
My recommendation is to get it replaced. If your technically inclined, most laptops keyboards can be removed and the flat ribbon connection can be cleaned. I would try that if your comfortable with removing your keyboard, other than that, it looks like your going to have to take it to a repair shop which most likely will do the same thing, or replace it.

Hi, Recently I am unable to insert the exclamation mark (SHIFT+1) on any programs. I know there is no problem with any keys as the shift button works and also the number 1 button works. But when I press these two keys in combination I get nothing (just tried putting an exclamation mark here to no avail).  This problem happened with my dad's HP Win 10 laptop as well. Suddenly most (nearly half of his keys) stopped working and he has been using an external keyboard for 2 months (once again tried putting an exclamation mark here to no avail).  Really dissapointed as it clearly seems to be a HP problem after it happening to both my and my dad's HP laptops only. Can someone shed some light on this problem please.

It is always the same 5 keys and all the others always work fine. This also happens in BIOS and safe mode, so I don't think it is an application. Any thoughts? 

Answer:Keys / Keyboard not working

Hi Cclaflin,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
As per the query we understood that you are issue with keyboard keys on your ThinkPad T440.
 
Check if any foreign partials stuck under keyboard. Use vacuum cleaner and blow the air with medium pressure, while performing this make sure that system is shutdown and remove the AC power adapter from the system.
 
If the issue still persists after that also then it could be a hardware related issue. 
 
Hope this helps.
 
Best regards,

Hi, this is my first post on these forums so I hope I am posting in the right area!After eight months of sitting in my closet infected with a virus, I finally took my Dell Inspiron 1525 to a computer repair store and had a new HD installed. It's working great and after being stuck with an Acer netbook during the Dell's hiatus, I'm happy as a clam.However, some of the keys on the keyboard are not working, and if I remember right, weren't working before the virus took the Dell out of commission. As far as I know, the keys that are not working are: Esc, Delete, and the down arrow key. The guy who fixed my laptop said he couldn't fix the keys, which I thought was kind of odd, as it seems like a pretty trivial task compared to saving all my data and installing a new HD, but then again I know nothing about repairing computers.Anyone have an idea of what might be causing just these keys to not work? I should say that about a year ago the laptop fell off my bed (oops) and I had to have the power jack repaired, but in all honesty I can't remember if the keys stopped working right after the fall or if it took a while.Obviously these keys aren't necessary for me to be able to use the laptop but would be handy to have them back so I don't always have to switch to the trackpad.I am running Windows Vista Home Basic.

I have a fairly specific computing environment (as we all do), and an issue...
The issue is with a PC (details below) and a keyboard, and possibly some other hardware....

First the symptoms seems like the 5, 6 -, and = keys are not working; nothing happens when they are pressed. This goes for those keys SHIFTed. Also, CNTL+ALT+DEL doesn't bring up the task manager, and CTRL+V doesn't paste. I think that's all but IDK how to exhaustively test a keyboard.
The keyboard is a Microsoft Wireless 700 v2.0 with associated USB receiver and wireless optical mouse. The mouse, receiver and most of the keyboard work ok it seems.It was acquired 'used' because I don't need the extra wires.

The wired PS/2 mouse and every wired keyboard have worked ok.

Sometimes, I have read, this is a software fault (reference available), but I am very conscious of it might be an electromechanical fault with the keyboard. How can I tell ? I do not want to take the keyboard if I can possibly avoid it. I did that once to another keyboard and it's still in pieces :-o

Hi, I have an EagleTec KG010 mechanical keyboard and sometimes when I would be running or driving a car in a game, I would try to turn right by pressing the "D" key and it wouldn't turn. I would then keep pressing it and it would finally turn. This only happens sometimes, and I have just dealt with it for a while, but recently, I got PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds and have been playing with some friends and this glitch where the d button doesn't work has caused me to get killed more than once. This has only occurred in games (while typing this, the D button works fine). Is this because of a problem with the keyboard or is it something with the computer? I thought it might be a problem with the computer since the key works fine when not in a game.

Hi, I updated my Synapse software (Razer) and suddenly my BlackWidow mechanical keyboard isn't working fully. The F keys are not working correctly the F10 mutes and F11/12 turn the volume up and down (almost like it's a laptop keyboard). The Windows key has swapped with the ALT key and also the hash key isn't working.

I'm not sure what else to do, I uninstalled Synapse, reinstalled, updated it, removed it, unplugged the keyboard etc.

Any help appreciated

Answer:Some Keyboard keys not working / working incorrectly

You might try System Restore back to the day before you first updated the software. I would also try the keyboard on another computer to make sure the keyboard is okay. And while at it, try the other keyboard on your system.

Hi. I have a Lenovo 3000 v100 laptop, and it comes with its own set of function keys. You press the "Fn" key and then whatever corresponding key for various functions. However, recently I had a malware attack, and although I think it was fixed (in this forum), some of these Fn keys don't work.
Specifically, Fn + F7 (Monitor Control) and Fn + F12 (Hibernate).
Also, the "Lenovocare" hard button and the "multimedia control" hard button also do not work.
This link : ftp://ftp.software.ibm.com/pc/pccbbs/mobiles_pdf/41w3465.pdf
has a bit of infomration on the Fn keys in general.

Also, around the same time (I don't know if this is related), but when I go to Power Management in the Control Panel, the dropdown list of Power Schemes contains nothing and I cannot set any of the options (i.e. when to turn off, standby, etc).

I have tried downloading and installing the drivers again, as well as various antimalware scans. The keys by themselves work (f7 and f12), and the Fn key in general works, just not together.

Can anyone help?

Or can anyone perhaps suggest a more appropriate forum?

I'm not sure when it started, but some of the keys on my numerical pad on the keyboard have stopped working: '2', '.', '+', '/' and also the down cursor key. I have a Logitech Internet keboard with 'i-touch' and have tried uninstalling the drivers and re-installing them which hasn't helped. I have checked throughly for viruses and spyware too.I know it isn't a major problem but it is really starting too annoy me now!! Anyone else had a similar problem and solved it?

Can you help?

I have an acer aspire pc and have just got a new keyboard, an acer sk-9625 (came with a mouse also).

Anyway, when I plugged the keyboard in to my usb port it installed the drivers and said new hardware was found etc etc and the media keys (email, web browser, volume wheel, mute etc) were working just fine.
Then, after shutting my pc down and restarting it they stopped working but the rest of the keyboard was working fine.
I unplugged the keyboard from the usb port it was in and plugged it into another one and the computer then said the same thing: installed the drivers and said new hardware was found and the media keys started working again
Then I shut down and restarted again and the same thing happened
So now its plugged into the 3rd usb port and they were working for a bit and I left my computer on but overnight updates were installed and its been restarted and now they are not working AGAIN!!

I've tried updating the drivers and they were ok, dudn't need to be updated.
I've googled the keyboard model and can't find anything.

I've been into control panel --> keyboards --> Hardware tab --> Properties and it says HID keyboard is working properly

What next?

Thanks

I have an Inspiron N5110 laptop.
There are certain keys that have suddenly stopped working. The "T, Y, BACKSPACE  and SHIFT keys.
There have been no spills or any damage to the laptop. No changes or additions added. I have called Dell and they had me remove the battery and power cord & hold the power button for 30 seconds..... After that they worked for about an hour, but have stopped again. I did the "solution" again but it did not help this time. He mentioned something about a download?? But to be honest I couldn't understand what he said. I am not a computer wiz,  just an average user. Any help here is greatly appreciated!!In the system info for keyboard it lists : Standard PS/2 keyboardand I am running windows 7

Answer:N5110 keyboard - some keys NOT working

Hi Delee40,
You may perform try below mentioned steps to further isolate if the issue is software related or with hardware. Check if you face the same issue while using the onscreen keyboard. Here are the steps to access onscreen keyboard:

Click Start→Control Panel→Ease of Access→Ease of Access Center.
Click the Start On-Screen Keyboard button. A keyboard appears, floating in the middle of your screen.
Test out the on-screen keyboard input in any application where you can enter text. Open Microsoft Word or a similar application and give it a go.
Click the Close button on the On-Screen Keyboard when you’re finished using it.

If the issue replicate with the onscreen keyboard then it is a error with any software or Windows. If not then you may try reseating the keyboard. Here is the service manual that you can refer to for installing the hardware components. Please follow the safety instructions.
If the keys are still not responding, you may consider replacing the keyboard.
Hope this helps. Please reply if you have any questions.

I have a Logitech K200 keyboard. It's been quite a few years since I have been using it.

It had been working fine till a few days ago. Now random keys aren't working. Like F2, N, Alt, left & right arrow keys.

Particular problem is with the N key, for which I have to use the onscreen keyboard & it's quite annoying.

Sometimes, the keys work all of a sudden. Like, for the past 2-3 days, the keys started working. Since yesterday afternoon, they again stopped working :/.

What could be the cause? I uninstalled & reinstalled the drivers too.

Should I just buy a new keyboard?

Hi All,
I have just replaced a screen in an Acer Aspire One Happy Netbook (AOHappy) and after i restarted the machine everything appeared to be ok, i downloaded and installed some windows updates, did some moving about from folder to folder etc, everything was ok. But now my daughter tells me some of the keys are not working,seems to be all on the right hand side of the board, the dots arrows, letters and some synbols. what would be the problem here?
Would the ribbon cable have moved? Or if it were not fully home would that cause these symptoms?

I did remove the keyboard at one point while trying to figure out how to get at the screen.

Thank you.

I'm having a keyboard issue.

- Ok so I have an Acer Aspire V5-471G laptop. N its currently running windows 10 and I downloaded the anniversary update in september(not sure, don't remember exactly).
- But after the second week of October(i think) certain keys on my keyboard have just stopped working for no reason at all.
- Specifically the letters:- W, E, R, Y and the TAB key and recently I noticed the Windows Key is also not working.
- They do not work at all and nothing happens when I press these keys.

- As far I know the rest of the keys are working fine coz I did an online keyboard test(or maybe some key I dont use aren't working n I missed it)
- I don't know if the keys have stopped working bcoz of downloading the anniversary update or something else.
- I have tried removing the keys and cleaning under them with a soft-haired paintbrush coz I thought maybe there was dust under them that was obstructing the working of the keys but that dint change anything n keys were still not working after cleaning under them..

- Also 2 days after I found this problem, I did a system restore to a restore point that I had created about 5-7 days ago(in the restore point I created, everything including the keys was working fine thats y I decided to use the system restore). But that dint work either, the sys restore rolledback some updates but that was all; the keys were still not working..
- And so afterwords I decided to look for answers on the net but I dint find anything helpful. I... Read more

Answer:Certain keys not working on keyboard(Windows 10)

Plug in another keyboard and try that. If you haven't got one go to an Internet Caf? and plug in one of theirs.

Then you'll know if it is a hardware problem with your laptop keyboard (sounds like it is).

Hi everyone, I own an Acer Aspire laptop and certain keys aren't working, have had to use the on screen keyboard for a while and thought it's about time to get it fixed!

The keys that are permanently broken are that '0)' key and '/?' and intermittently I lose the left 'shift' key, and the I O P L keys.

Some of it seems to be concentrated in the top right of the keyboard, was wondering if it's a connection to the motherboard but wouldn't know how to fix it!

Any ideas would be welcome, have removed all of the above keys and cleaned them, even pressing directly onto the key underneath didn't help for the ?/ or 0) key.

Thanks

Yes, I know that this problem has been hashed around over and over. I have read countless posts but still no answer. Here's my problem:

The Multimedia keys stopped working one day. I can't seem to find out why. I am using a P4/w Intel 915GAG mobo, W2000+SP4 and MS Multimedia Keyboard (KB-0168 1.0a) that is wired. This is the same keyboard, computer and system as it came when new.

I have checked 1) The Uninstall window and it shows that IntelliType 2.2 is installed 2) The Adm Hardware page and it says that there is a 101/102 key or MS Natural keyboard installed and working ok 3) Hijack this in the Startup List shows that keyboard\type32.exe is started 4) If I go to the MS Keyboard icon on the desktop and use the Keys, Restore Default Settings the keys work again -- until the computer Sleeps or is Rebooted. The keys stop functioning again until I restore them again.

If you need any more information, just ask and I'll post it.

Thanks, Steve-x8086

I have an Emachine with WindowsXP on it, and it has this keyboard with these nifty little silver keys that make life SOOOOO much simpler. However, after some issues with virus I guess, suddenly they don't work properly anymore. Please note: I'm only guessing that the virus is what messed them up, I don't actually know.

My CUT/COPY/PASTE keys don't work at all, my CALCULATOR key gives me like 5 calculators, and since I don't use the others, I'm not sure if they work or not...heck, I'm not entirely positive what all of them do, but I'm sure that I can live without them.

I have tried unplugging the keyboard and plugging it back in, but don't know what else to do to get the keys to work again. Suggestions anyone??
