Preferred Solution: My laptop key board is messed up

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: My laptop key board is messed up

Have you tried a USB keyboard? If not, try it. You might also try the on screen keyboard.

You don't have too many options with a laptop. If you have no experience opening one and working inside, you'd be better off to take it to a qualified repair shop.

You might not want to drink and compute at the same time

I am trying to install a modem board on a compaq armada 7800. Everything is great until I get to the remove keyboard assembly part. It says to remove the label on the top of keypad then remove the screws underneath. From looking at it (from every possible angle) it does not appear to be a removeable item. Looks like formed plastic with a plastic label. Can anyone shed light on this for me? I'm perplex as to how remove these two hidden screws and complete this installation. Series 2890B

I have a CompUSA notebook with a screen that has gone black.
When I booted it up I heard a "hissing" like noise and the display came up dark but under a bright light I could see the wallpaper and icons. The next boot it came up black.
After having talked to the manufacturer service dept and finding out that they will charge about twice what I paid for a repair, I took the thing apart and found a smoked capacitor on what appears to be a power supply board.
Does anyone know of a source for parts?
thanks in advance

A:Laptop Power Board

If you are good with a soldering iron go to radio shack and get replacement components. Call the manufacturer again and ask them to sell you just the part as long as you know what it is. Most of them will be glad to send you one or point you to a depot center where u can buy one.

A:Laptop key board problem

SONY Support Country Selection Page

You have a European version. You will need to go to the above link and find the 64bit driver for the keyboard.
Install on the Win 7 64bit.

UK isn't listed as available there so select the country on the first page.

Ive got a toshiba laptop and i went to sleep watching a dvd on it.
It fell off my bed and now when i type it doesnt keep up to speed even if i plug a different keyboard into it and use that.
I constantly have to go back and r-type everything i do

Any suggestions on how to possibly sort it out myself?

A:Laptop key board promlems

Dropping a laptop can do all kinds of damage... If you're not comfortable taking laptops apart, you will have to take it to a computer repair shop

Hi,

I have a PCG-F370 laptop and the mainboard , an MBX-30 (1-675-068-11), fried. I tried to buy a cheap replacement from ebay but by mistake I bought the wrong MBX-30 board (1-675-068-21) and the my pcg-370 450mhz cpu doesn't work in it.

Sony refuses to tell me which PCG-FXXX model the 1-675-068-21 MBX-30 board is from that I bought by mistake. Thus, I cannot buy the appropriate cpu so that I can get up and running again. Is there anybody out there with Sony knowledge who might be able to help me id this board and the needed cpu so I can get back in business? Thanks!!!

I spilled some water on my hp laptop. I turned it upside down immediately and shaked it a little so the water would come out and left it upside down all weekend. Turned it on today and it works perfectly EXCEPT I have no sound. I did all the trouble shooting I knew and the computer says everything is working fine. Could water spilled on the laptop cause the sound to go out.
The laptop is a HP Pavilion Entertainment and runs Vista. I would appreciate any ideas or suggestions. Thanks!

A:water spilled on laptop key board

Yes it certainly can cause that and other problems.when water is spilled it might appear to be fine but you just dont know what hidden damage is in there.i would have it checked out to make sure nothing was ruined beyond repair.

Dear Tech guys;

I have a HP Pavilion Notebook, model dv2125LA, happens that I serviced with an HP technician in Ensenada, Mexico, when I received yesterday I chanched my session password and Installed Corel Draw and Autocad R2010. Then right after I installed this software I restarted my lap-top and suddenly something happened because all the keys from "a" trough "g" and from "j" trough "ñ" got blocked. they don´t work. I already tried with clicking Funtion+num blq and didn´t work that way. Since my password beggins with "a" I can´t access my session... Please help me.. don´t know what to do....

A:Having laptop issues...maybe system board?

Try a test first.

Do you have a desktop? If so, plug your desktop monitor into your laptop and then turn it on. If it works fine then it is your laptop monitor. Some people that I went to college with had the same problem as you have, only got lines showing on the monitor (but their's happened after their warranty ran out). The IT department at our school told them it was the monitor. Usually some could get it working if they pressed the sides of the laptop monitor. Just an idea, but I would definitely try the test first and see what you get. If it works send it back and tell them you want a new laptop or a refund. At this point I wouldn't even want them to replace the monitor.

Hope this helps.

So someone I know had me look at a laptop of theirs, an ASUS X54C laptop, which has 2 GB of non-removable RAM built into the motherboard. I used memtest86+ to check it and it immediately came back with all sorts of errors.

From the outside (minus the cover for access to the HD and RAM slots) there does not appear to be any additional RAM installed at all (the slots are empty). So I was wondering, by chance, if you add RAM into one of these slots, does the motherboard stop using the on-board RAM and switch over to the stuff you put into the slot, or does it use both the on-board and "off-board" RAM side by side?

Hey! My older brother just gave me his old laptop(it's really slow) and i'm trying to work it, but there seems to be a lot of viruses on it? First of all, it's extremely slow, with almost NO games or special programs on it. Also, I'm not allowed to change any properties or anything because it says i need to contact my computer administrator. But there's only one account! It's so confusing and i was wondering if there is just an easy way to delete everything on my computer (aside from the standard programs like word, paint, or even my internet) and just restart fresh. I know i sound really naive right now, but is there a way? I'd really like to be able to use it so please help if you can! thanks

I have a Dell inspiron 2650, it is screwed up and I dont know what to do about it. I am running windows and office xp. Whenever I try to open IE, it will open about 50 times. I cannot access my internet at all. I can log onto messanger and anything else but IE. I have run "sfc /scannow", ad-aware, I am unable to update my mcafee because this laptop was given to me and I dont have access to update it and I cant access the internet, I obviously cannot do an online virus scan, I have just completed a disk cleanup. I don't know where to go from here, any help would be great.

Hi techies,

My dell inspiron 4000 laptop is not powering up. When I plug in the power supply to the wall outlet the battery lights up but as soon as I plug it into the laptop the light on the battery goes out. The part on the laptop where the battery is plugged in also smells burnt when I plug it back out.

Is this a battery problem or is it as I feared, the power section on the board is fried? Do I have to get a new laptop or can that part of the board be replaced?

Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

A:Laptop completely messed up!!!

Try Running System Restore but if you can't, go into Safe Mode and run System Restore from there. Immediately after powering on, tap the "F8" key until the Boot Menu appears and then select the option to boot into Safe Mode.

If that doesn't work, from the same "F8" Boot Menu, select the option to boot to Safe Mode with Command Prompt. At the prompt, run this command to start System Restore:

%SystemRoot%\system32\Restore\rstrui.exe

From the same Boot Menu, you could also try booting the Last Known Good Configuration, but I suspect that won't help if the problem has been caused by internet "nasties".

Hello cwaddell27

If you got a message that the C drive is corrupted you should check it out.

Quote:

after clicking ok twice it started, but with original desktop wallpaper and lots of icons missing.

I think what happened was that your profile became corrupted and XP created another profile for you.

Back up all your files, important data and email account and then run chkdsk to check the hard drive

Hi,
Have you tried a system restore? I used a registry fixer once just once & it messed up my laptop 100% 'cos I didn't know what clicking "fix" meant.

My husband's IBM Thinkpad 570 screen is all messed up. There are several vertical lines that run from top to bottom across the screen. When you apply pressure or twist the screen they disappear for a few minutes, but then return. Is there away to fix this? He also has another 570 he's not using, is there a way to simply switch the screens? Thanks.

So I finished downloading a game and I open it with WinRAR,suddenly all these messages starting popping up like crazy and the next thing I know all the icons in the start menu have turned into the winRAR icons and it says that the files are damaged or cannot be found.
I cant access anything besides firefox and when I try to download anything that I dont have (ex:google chrome) and I open the file and it says"application not found." I also cannot go into safemode on my laptop and internet explorer isn`t working either. Any help on how to get this fixed?

first of all, the laptop woks perfectly fine
but ... i think i think i messed up with the registry files using ( CCleaner or Revo Uninstaller Pro )
it started when suddenly a lot of my program did not work
after that i reinstalled " internet download manager " when i got this message " the program will not work as before because you used some program to force uninstall the program " or something like that
now the " Fn " key won't work to control the volume and control the brightness and these stuff .
i'm 99.9% sure that i messed up when i started to use "Revo Uninstaller Pro" to uninstall programs with the advanced mode ... after that i click " search " to delete the leftovers ... after the search i select everything and delete it : (

now how bad did i mess up ?

and yeah ... english is my second language

Using system restore go back 5 days before the problem began. Then stop the reg cleaners; that is what caused the problem.

Hello, I have had major problems with my Toshiba laptop for a few months now. It all started when I got these fake messages about viruses when the thing sending the message was a virus itself. So, I used Ad-Aware to fix it and somewhere along the way I really messed up the laptop. Afterwards, I could no longer open any .exe files except for a video player that allows me to go onto the internet. I can't install anything, Adobe flash partly works and Java no longer works. I really hope I can get help.

A:Windows Update REALLY messed up my laptop!

Okay, so no one could help me, I understand...

I'm only posting this in case anyone else has this problem.

If it hadn't been for one little addition to the "Windows encountered a problem" pop up, which was "bad pool caller" I would probably still be at it! I finally figured out it was the printer causing all the problems. I deleted the printer and uninstalled it from the programs, then plugged it in and let it re-install itself and I haven't had any problems since

The "bad pool caller" isn't necessarily a printer problem but I noticed after every system restore the only time I had to restore it again was after trying to get my printer to print something, which it wouldn't do.  So thanks for all of you who looked.  Makes me feel not so dumb since no one else could figure it out either

A:Laptop Screen Messed Up Colors

Hi,

You say the screenshots like fine when viewed on a working PC, so I would make the assumption that the fault is with the LCD screen itself. If it is actually faulty then your only real choices is to replace the LCD or use an external monitor. Replacing the LCD can be expensive and if it is a particularly old laptop it probably isn't a worthwhile financial option.

Hello I am new to this website.

I Have a problem with my Alienware m14 Laptop
I downloaded an driver update from either Nvidia or Gforce I forgot which. and during installing my laptop messed up and I can no longer get to the desktop. it is black screen and just simply shows the battery icon in the top left corner then I get signed back out to the start menu and have to re-login. I tried to re-do everything using f12 (I think its f12) during boot up and it would not allow me to do that as it said something about my driver.
I have the laptop under guarantee but is it possible to fix my self? (also this is dumb of me but I saved my passwords in notepad and was wondering how do I get them back?)

Hello Amazing, and welcome to Eight Forums.

A:My laptop is all messed up after Windows 7 upgrade

I just installed Win7 the other day, and I have other issues. It seems like my video drivers are acting unresponsive and my wireless internet connection is spotty. I have half a mind to send my computer back to Alienware and tell them to fix it or give me a Mac.

My friend hit his laptop with a flyswatter and messed up the monitor. I tried connecting it to an external monitor but all I get is a screen saver. I can use the mouse to open programs but they won't open on the monitor. Does anyone know how to disable the laptop monitor? It's a touch screen.

Ok. For Some reason, my internal speaker on the right side is a bit messed up. Whenever I play anything, it gives off this interferring bass sound like U get from static or something. It very muffled. My left speaker is ok but my right speaker is giving off this sound. I don't know how to fix it.

I just got this laptop two days ago. I think it doing this is cause My battlefield 2 crashed and now, I can't figure out how to fix this sound thing.
This also happened yesterday but it fixed itself out somehow. I don't know what I did yesterday to fix this but earlier today, BF2 crashed and now my audio on the right internal speaker messed up.

Hi,

At the moment I run dual display through VGA, one is monitor, one is the laptop screen. However, I'm looking to use an additional monitor on top of this. I know I have an NVIDIA video card, and onboard Intel graphics. Are both of these being currently used to run a dual-display setup, or not? And would there be a way I could run 3 displays (2 externals + laptop) based on what I have in my system?
Running WIN7 64bit if that helps.
If you require more info to answer my question just ask.
Thanks,
Chris

I was doing something in Powerpoint,laptop suddenly frooze and was not responding to nothing.
I hardly powered off it and now it boots into that stupid startup repair which could not find the problem.
The data is still here so nothing is lost.

A:Laptop frooze,hard power-off messed up everything

If your computer is going into Windows repair, let it run until it finishes and says 'Windows repair failed to fix your problem'. At the bottom of the screen where it gives you this bad news you should see something like 'Advanced options'. Click on this and select 'Windows restore'.

This will take you to a screen which lists available restore points, usually the one or two latest. If this (or one of) restore points pre-dates the start of your problem then select it and click 'Restore'. If  none of the shown restore points pre-date your problem, there is a button bottom left to 'Show more restore points'. Choose one that pre-dates your problem. Then click 'Restore' or 'Start restore'. You will get one or two warning screens, just accept them, and the restore will start. It normally takes about five minutes to run and it may automatically re-boot your computer when it is finished. If it doesn't do a re-boot, re-boot any way and you should be good to go.

Any problems, post back.
