Many keys in keyboard not working HP G62-b80SS laptop

Q: 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 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.

Hi, for some reason some of the keyboard keys arent working, I didn't spill anything on them and they are not stuck. They are the spacebar, letters b n, forward slash, the three bottom arrow keys. My laptop is a dell inspiron 1525 and its a year old.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks

I'm having a keyboard issue - Ok so I have an Acer Aspire V - G laptop N its currently running windows 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 (Windows keyboard Certain not keys on working laptop 10) 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 days after I found this problem I did a system restore to Certain keys on laptop keyboard not working (Windows 10) a restore point that I had created about - 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 Certain keys on laptop keyboard not working (Windows 10) afterwords I decided to look for answers on the net but I dint find anything helpful I did read somewhere that there could be a keyboard driver issue and so I checked Device Manager and tried updating the keyboard drivers but it said that the drivers are already updated Certain keys on laptop keyboard not working (Windows 10) - And also I read somewhere on the net that if your keyboard is not working you should try using the on-screen keyboard and check if the keys that are not working on the physical keyboard are working on the onscreen keyboard amp if the non working keys are also not working on the OSK then it might be an issue or something like that - so I tried using the OSK but all the keys are working fine on that n so now I don't know what's the problem on the physical keyboard - As of now I'm using the OSK for typing the letters that don't work but I want a proper solution for this Plz give me some answers for this - And if you need any more information of my laptop or have any questions please let me know N if your wondering how I typed this then i'm using my work computer P - Thanks to anyone who replies

hi after updating my laptop with a system up date my caps lock, b and n keys don't work. I'm using the on screen keyboard to write this. my laptop is a HP Pavilion g6-1389sa Notebook with Genuine Windows 7 Home Premium 64. normarly i would take it in to the shop to be looked at but i have no warranty left as i could not afford it. please help if you can as i use my laptop for work everyday, and need this sorted as soonas possible. thank you.

A: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 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.

 Hey @Sanjiv1?, Thank you for visiting the HP Forums! A great place where you can find solutions for your issues with help from the community!I came across your post about the Notebook, and wanted to assist you! I have looked into your issue about your Compaq Presario CQ57-200tu Notebook and keyboard keys not working correctly. You can resolve this issue by checking the keyboard language.  Please note remove any and all USB devices. Disconnect all non-essential devices, as these could cause some issues. Here is a link to uninstall the keyboard. Restart the computer after uninstalling, it should reinstall automatically.

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?

A: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.

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.

A:Keyboard - Shift & Alt keys stopped working for keyboard shortcuts

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!

Hi guys, Something really strange started happening two days ago. Out of the blue the following keys stopped working: GHBackspaceWindows [email protected]' The laptop is a couple of years old and a bit dusty, so I took it to the local shop to get the keyboard replaced and cleaned. Seemed to be working fine when I left the shop. Then, a little while ago the space key and P stopped. Five minutes later they started working again but ctrl stopped and N is temperamental. I haven't spilt anything on it or knocked it. Any ideas what's going on?

Hi,
I have an Acer laptop with a USB keyboard. All worked perfectly until I updated Win 8.1 to Win 10. Now my Page Up, Up key and Left Arrow do not work.
They work fine on the actual laptop keyboard just not the USB keyboard.
The keyboard works fine when attached to my other laptop (running Win 7) but these keys do not work on the Acer with Win 10.
I have updated drivers.
Any advice?
Thanks

You have two options: stop using the USB keyboard with the Win 10 computer or roll back to the former OS and wait a few more months to try Win 10 and see if it has better drivers.

All of a sudden, while iam composing an email on hotmail, certain keys of my desktop keyboard stopped working...i assumed that once i restart it the issue would be resolved. I was mistaken. I have restarted my desktop computer, unplugged the keyboard from the cpu and start my pc up again, however the same issues persists. Most keys are functioning on my keyboard, but certain keys give no response. My num pad is not working, and the num lock green light doesnt even light up when i push down on it. Now the problem is, i cant log into my desktop windows xp, mainly because my password contains a 7 in it. None of the keys work on the numpad, however a few numbers do work from the main keyboard component. I have no idea what to do. I tried pressing f8 to go into safe mood but nothing happens. Please help. Thank you

Sounds like it's time to buy a new keyboard! If you're determined to get this one to work you can try washing it with warm water, then let it sit for a couple days to dry out, and try it again, but if I were you I'd just eat the $10

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

A: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

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. Thank you.

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.

The numbers across the top of the keys - 1,2,3,4,8,9,0.
If he holds down the shift key, still nothing on those numbers.
Various random letters also not working.

Swaps out keyboards, tries a couple others, no change.

This has happened to him before. They only solution in the past was to reformat. System restore doesn't fix it either...

Hi rocker,

you could try to uninstall the USB drivers and reinstall them to see if it helps.

Also try the on screen keyboard, you'll find it through the Ease of Access center.

And try the keyboard on another system to see if it occours just on your computer.

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.

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?

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.

A few days after installing windows 10 on my Samsung 880Z5E laptop certain keyboard keys stopped working. The letter "m", the letter "z", and the space bar, and a few others. I tried reinstalling keyboard and mousepad drivers, I tried going back to Windows 8, I've searched online for similar issues. The only success I've had is that when I hold down an offending key for a very long time, it eventually sputters to life, but just barely.

Hi Everyone,

I have a HP Netbook running Windows 7 Starter. 2 Days ago some of the keys on my keyboard suddenly stopped working (e,r,n). So thought maybe the keyboard was faulty. So I connected a external USB keyboard and still the same keys do not work.

I set the BIOS setting to default, but still nothing. I tried using last known good configuration, nothing but I don't think it is a Windows issue. I cannot log into Windows because one of the keys I need to type in my password doesn't work.

Does anyone have any sugguestions on what the issue could be?

Thanks
Jim

Some of the keys on my laptop stopped working while I was playing a fighting video game was rapidly tapping a bunch of keys.The up and left arrows, right shift, and from q to p only t and y work.I have tried everything on the troubleshooting page http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c03843122 as well as replacing the keyboard. Sometimes pressing the keys very hard will make them work . Also pressing certain keys at the same time will do something like ert will increase screen brightness. Don't think it did that before.

Hi folks. I just had to do a reinstall of my Window's 7 and since have had a problem with 2 keys on my keyboard. When I use the apostrophe key, nothing happens, but when I type something after, it appears. It's no big deal really, but I'm rather anal and it just bugs me when something isn't working right.

I have used search here at SF and gone through the tutorials, but can't find anything that quite matches. I tried to update driver's but the little box on the screen tells me driver's are up to date. I checked Device Manager and it doesn't indicate any problem. I checked Keyboard in Control Panel and it says the device is working properly.

If anyone has any suggestion's I would appreciate hearing them, if not I'll learn to live with it.

Thanks, David

​I was typing when suddenly my F H and . and , keys stopped working. I thought maybe drops of water or something may have gotten on it when I wasn't looking so I shut it down, and blew air on it with my blow dryer on low setting. I do not have compressed air. I let it sit for about a half hour then came back.
It was working just fine for about 5 minutes then the same keys stopped working. Then gradually more keys went out. I can now only type adegiklmopqrtuwxy. Also the space bar, up and down arrows, and various punctuation keys don't work. Although, some keys have started working that haven't before.
I cannot afford to get it professionally looked. Is there anything I can do on my own? The model number is asus x200ca-scl0301q and i have Windows 8.

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).

Would there be drivers or something else needed to get this keyboard to work on the new computer?

Hi.

I also can't figure out how to change the settings on the keyboard.

I suspect that I need to install a driver (or more) to allow the keybaord to fully function properly, but can't find anything that says it will work with Windows Vista.

Does anyone know how I can get this working?

Hi yeah the quick keys are functions of the drivers so you want to go to dell and download all the drivers. Bios, audio, vide, everything. then you need to go to gateway for the keyboard driver. If the keyboard was usb, or bluetooth you would need to do a couple of additionnal steps

BIOS? Why BIOS?
I guess its hardware problem and you will need to replace the internal keyboard.

Just to confirm the keyboard issue: you could connect external USB keyboard.
In case the external keyboard would work properly, the issue is related to internal keyboard.

I have a user whose Tab key stopped working, but only on its own. That is to say, Ctrl-Tab, Shift-Tab, and Alt-Tab all still work. After swapping with a known-good keyboard, Ctrl doesn't work, and escape opens the start menu (which would indicate that ctrl is stuck down). After a second keyboard swap, with a keyboard that is known-good, tested, and absoutely pristine, he reports that the F key and Ctrl key sometimes do not work, along with a couple other keys.

A:Ctrl keys not working after keyboard clean

Sounds like it's buggered.
Unless something got into the contacts for the control keys themselves, it's extremely unlikely for something to effect just one or two keys.
It the drink was plain water, it normally won't hurt it after drying it'll function correctly, it it was a sugary drink, the sugar could insulate the contacts. Can sometimes rinse under warm water and allowed to dry.
If really ambitious or just plain curious, you can tear it apart and clean the contacts, but keyboards are cheap enough that it's seldom worth it as a repair.
try a different keyboard to see if that helps.
