How To Fix Laptop key board problem
Working on a laptop computer gives you flexibility and portability. Since it is prone to frequent transfer, manufacturers make sure that their systems can withstand almost every risk including spills, transport and jostling. However, laptops are still prone to wear and tear both inside and outside. Laptop errors may include hard drive failure, system crash, not enough memory and virus infestation.
Apart from the time delays on your computer work and the lost productivity, there is also the issue of expenses to fix the errors, not to mention the calls to tech support. For fatal laptop errors, some cases may require you ship your laptop back to the manufacturer for repairs.

please help. I can type ok but i have no special characters, such as @%$#^&(_+"|). if i am not making any sense just ask for clarification Tom SONY Support Country Selection Page You have a European version. Mike
all of these i had to copy and paste. You will need to go to the above link and find the 64bit driver for the keyboard. Now bear in mind i have 32 bit on another partition and it works fine. UK isn't listed as available there so select the country on the first page.
i just installed win 7 ultimate 64bit on my Sony VAIO VGN-FW31E laptop. but 64bit i have a broblem with my keyboard. Install on the Win 7 64bit.

While laptop computers may be prone to errors, there are also quick fixes to most of these ailments. If your laptop experience slow hard drive processes like a sluggish file transfer or program load times, your solution is disk defragmentation.

from pc chips board to msi board..same problem
It has a cheap power supply..HERCULES..is the name on it..it weighs almost nothing...Ive tried different stick of memory and vga card..only 2 things that are comman with problem..cpu..a AMD Athlon XP 2600 333mhz and this cheap power supply..The problem has to be with either the cpu or power supply...thats what im thinking.....
If ur not posting and considering what u've done coupled with the MSI diagnostics it is very likely there is a problem with this cpu. You need to get a hold of another compatible AMD cpu just to see if u can post, from there u can confront the ebay seller for any restitution ovr the cpu if there was any kind of guarantee offered at all with the purchased items.

or how much use it's had, but both problems are certainly something that can happen with age and continuous use. Both the keyboard and the CD drive are replaceable items, but the work may not be cost-effective in an old machine.

Laptop Power Board
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. The next boot it came up black. 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.
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.
I have a CompUSA notebook with a screen that has gone black. Does anyone know of a source for parts?

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

ASUS laptop has faulty on-board RAM. What can I do?
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?
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.
Laptop power board issue
It seems as though there are problems with the power circuit board and/or DC jack because the computer does not know when it is plugged in; the battery icon in the taskbar always shows that it is plugged in and because if that I cannot tell when the plug has wiggled loose and so if I am using the laptop for any prolonged time and the plug does wiggle loose (it does not take much for this to happen) and I don't realize it, I don't receive any low battery warnings or anything; the only way I know the plug has come out in this case is when the computer completely dies and shuts off.
I have an Alienware Sentia M3450 and for a while now I have been having problems getting it to charge. Does anyone know why this might be happening?
If it helps, the area of the computer where the DC jack is located often becomes extremely hot-- to the point where I can't even touch it.

water spilled on laptop key board
I spilled some water on my hp laptop. The laptop is a HP Pavilion Entertainment and runs Vista. 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 would appreciate any ideas or suggestions. 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.
Sony MBX-30 laptop board identification
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? 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.

coca spillage on laptop key board
Can't you claim on your house insurance?
my question is this - as coca cola is extremely acidic and contains sugar, is it repairable?i am thinking of corrosion over a period of time and the heat from the laptop which will exacerbate this process.i want to talk to Dell but i thought i will ask for help here first to prepare me for talk with dell. it is under warranty but not covered for accidental damage. somebody accidently spilt coca cola on the key board of my daughter's Dell laptop.
it works but only when connected to the mains. she drained and dried the keyboard for 24 hours after removing the battery.
pl can anyone advise me how to proceed?
KEY BOARD MALFUNCTION Windows 7 HP DV4 Laptop
In fact I faced lots of problems in windows 10 probably due to compatibility issues with Norton360. I dont really need to use OSK. Can you please help me fix this issue
I have to open on screen keyboard. This problem started after I upgraded to windows 10.

Having laptop issues...maybe system board?
Usually some could get it working if they pressed the sides of the laptop monitor. If its something i can do myself, ill do that instead of sending it back again and going through the pain in the *****. If it works fine then it is your laptop monitor. I have to wait for the battery to die for it to shut off.
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). At this point I wouldn't even want them to replace the monitor. Its been working just fine. Hope this helps.
Do you have a desktop? I tried a few other times and i got the same results. on the invoice it says 'repaired', but then when i turn it on, its still doing the same stuff. Im unable to do anything, i cant reboot, cant move the mouse, cant even put the computer in hybernation mode.
So after calling HP a million times, i sent it in, and today i got it back. hu_nr
Just an idea, but I would definitely try the test first and see what you get.
But here's the story, i bought a laptop about 6 months ago. If so, plug your desktop monitor into your laptop and then turn it on. does anyone know what could be causing this? If it works send it back and tell them you want a new laptop or a refund.
Then 3 weeks ago..all of a sudden, i turn it on, and i get to the login screen, and i start seeing lines across it and then it flickers. i...
