Laptop Keyboard Repair

A keyboard without working keys may seem like a blow to productivity, but it’s possible to repair. If you’ve been working on your PC and suddenly some or no characters appear on your computer screen, we’re going to show you how to fix it.

Clean Up The Keyboard

It’s not easy to clean a standard keyboard, but it’s easier to do if you have a wireless or USB keyboard compared to a laptop keyboard. This may not necessarily fix any deep-seated issues with your keyboard keys, but it’ll help if debris and dirt are preventing the keyboard keys from working.

Update Or Rollback Laptop Keyboard Drivers

The easiest way to deal with a laptop keyboard that won’t work is to update the driver.Do this by clicking Start and entering the device manager. The Device Manager icon will appear in the results, so click this. Browse the list of devices until you see Keyboards, then expand the list. Right-click the keyboard device (usually Standard PS/2 Keyboard) and select Properties > Driver.

Replace A Faulty Laptop Keyboard

If the keyboard is physically damaged or has become disconnected from the motherboard (perhaps due to a shock), then you’ll need to put some time aside to remove the component from your laptop and either reseat the connection or replace the keyboard altogether.

Different manufacturers build their laptops in a variety of ways, which means it’s difficult to specify a single fix.

However, opening different laptops from the same manufacturer is generally the same. This makes swapping the keyboard (or simply reseating the cable connection) a lot easier.
