Dell :: Key On Keyboard Hard To Press Down

Jun 24, 2009

it feels like something is blocking my eject key (and sometimes my L-shift key). Nothing that I know have is fallen through the keyboard...

I'm guessing I can't take off keys from a laptop keyboard. Is the best course of action to call dell? I don't really want to send away my laptop, but I may have no choice...

It's a Studio 1555 if this matters

HP Envy 17 :: Keyboard Spits Multiple Keys With One Press?

Jan 17, 2014

Have an issue with the keyboard on the HP Envy 17. There are three keys that, for whatever reason, stopped working.
 
The "o" key produces zero, left key, home, period, 'o', and 'p'.
 
The 'L' key produces three, period, page down, six, 'l', and semi colen.
 
The '.' key produces '2', '5', end, '4', period, and forward slash.
 
This happens every time the key is pressed. If held, they produce the above, then the last key repeatedly.
 
All other keys perform as expected. If a seperate USB keyboard is used, it works fine.
 
I've tried updating and rolling back the BIOS, as well as 'resetting' by removing all power for a few minutes. Have also uninstalled the driver, then installed the latest.
 
I also purchased a replacement keyboard from HP (part #720244-001) and installed.

Acer :: AA 7520G Boots Only If You Press Hard Next To The Touchpad

Nov 21, 2009

My Acer Aspire 7520G suddenly refused to boot, leaving blank screen only. No boot logo or anything. However, after googling around a bit, I found one thread with a solution, which is to press hard around the touchpad, and to my big surprise it did indeed work.

So does anyone know what's wrong with the computer that behaves this way? I never found the cause, and before I start disassembling the laptop, it would be nice to know what to look for. (Can't take it to the service as warranty expired a couple of months ago)

Dell Inspiron 15R :: Won't Turn On When Press Power Button

Feb 7, 2013

My laptop, an Inspiron 15R, will not turn on. When I press power button, it beeps 3 times.  Owner manuel says 3 beep codes mean possible system board failure - chipset error.  As luck would have it my warranty went out in December.  Does this mean the hard drive on my computer has crashed?

HP 15 Lockups :: Touchpad Won't Move When Press Any Number

Sep 21, 2014

I own an HP 15 and i recently downloaded a game. when I opened the game and tried to play I was unable to press any button on my keyboard and move my touchpad at the same time. An example is that I was playing a first person shooter and i was unable to walk forward and aim at the same time. The touchpad would not let me aim unless i would stop moving (not pressing the w key.) I figured it was the numlock being enabled but after spending 2 or 3 hours searching on how to turn off the numlock such as using the on screen keyboard and using a combination of fn+ another key and I still have not succeeded in finding out what the problem is.

Dell :: A Disk Read Error Occurred :: Press Alt Ctrl Del To Restart

Jan 14, 2008

last night, I got on my desktop momentaily. Closed the laptop lid(laptop is still on) and placed the keyboard on top of the laptop so I can open the Linux gFTP program, connect to my sites FTP and run a full backup before I went to bed. No problem.

Slept about 8 hours, woke up. Opened the laptop LID to check email and forums, and I'm greeted with a BSOD. Great. Laptop is extremely warm too. So I soft shut down (holding the power button down) and the computer reboots itself.

Well, it takes a little while for the PC to boot, then I'm greeted with a.

Dell Inspiron 15R :: No Boot Device Found - Press Any Key To Reboot Machine

Nov 30, 2014

I have a dell Inspiron 15r 3537 i7 model with windows 8. I bought it 4 months ago. I was playing a game on it and it suddenly hanged. I waited for 5-10 minutes and tried to close the game but it wasn't closing and it was hung. I waited for atleast 15 minutes and I had no choice so I switched it off from the power button thinking that it will turn on normally. But when I switched it on it showed the dell logo and then it said

No boot device found. Press any key to reboot the machine.

When I rebooted the machine, the same error came.

I bought my Lenovo Y40 on the Lenovo Web site a couple months ago and recently, to turn on, I have to press the power button twice.

In addition, rarely the laptop stucks on the lenovo`s logo screen, being necessary to hold on the power to reset it.

Dell Inspiron 15 3521 :: Battery Would Not Charge - Press F1 To Continue Or F2 To Enter Setup

Jan 17, 2015

I have a Dell Inspiron 15 3521 which, until recently, was working fine. 

This morning I, after a rebooted, I got an error message informing me that the battery would not charge and to press f1 to continue or f2 to enter setup.  I continued and booted into Windows fine but noticed it wasn't charging,  I rebooted to see if the error message would go away.   It didn't.

I booted into the BIOS, loaded the "optimized defaults" and rebooted only to be greeted by the same error message.  

There were quite a few posts with similar issues, so I tried a couple of the solutions to see if any of them would work(updating the BIOS to A12, rebooting with the battery removed and then replacing it, deleting the two driver under batteries in device manager, etc.), but none of them resulted in the battery charging though the error message went away.  

After playing around with it for a while, I noticed the following behavior.

1.  Initially, in the BIOS, it said something like "Your battery is temporarily disabled, please turn off your computer and try again when the unit is back to operational temperature" .  After removal/reboot/re-adding, it reports it as healthy.  

2.  The AC adapter is reported as unknown when the battery is plugged in.  If I remove the battery, it is reported as 65W. Adding the battery results in it reporting as "unknown" again.

3.  If I am in Windows with the battery plugged in and not charging(as reported by windows) and I remove the AC adapter from the socket in the wall and plug it in again, the green light on the power brick glows for 5 or so seconds and the icon in the system tray shows charging. Unfortunately, it then turns off a few seconds later and the icon shows it running only on battery power.  

 I've seen quite a few of these posts, so I'm not expecting a definitive answer. As of right now, I'm running with just the AC adapter plugged in and the battery removed.  It works "fine" this way. 

NOTE:  This seemed to coincide with a run of windows update.  Prior to that, it was working correctly running on a fresh install of Windows 8.1 .  Either that, or it was just a coincidence.

Apple :: Late 2008 MBP Keyboard - Left Side Of The Keyboard Feels Mushy

Mar 11, 2009

I've had my MBP for about 4 month now and have been having problems with its keyboard since I bought it. First, the "Z" key sank in (I think there was a problem with the spring). I took it to the Apple Store, and they "fixed" on the spot (it's much harder to press and only registered a key press 70% of the time). The lower right corner of the "E" has noticeably sunk in, and I need to resort to pressing the upper left corner. Also, the left side of the keyboard feels "mushy", not hugely so, but definitely noticeable after typing a few sentences. Can I request that Apple just replace the entire keyboard instead of just individual keys?

Acer :: Is It Possible To Change 1810/1410 Keyboard For A Thinkpad Keyboard

Is it possible to change the Acer 1810T keyboard to a thinkpad one?

Are they the same size? Could it work?

I love the Acer, just not its keyboard and miss the thinkpad keyboard - which really encourages typing. The acer really doesn't.

If the thinkpad keyboard isn't possible, what else might be?

HP/Compaq :: HP Mini Keyboard Versus Acer Aspire One Keyboard

It feels "okay" to type on, obviously not the best due to its size compared to a normal keyboard, but am wondering if the HP's is worth the price jump (paid 300 for mine).

Dell :: Keyboard With The Studio 17

Oct 15, 2008

I recently recieved my Studio 17 notebook from Dell and its really wonderful, everything works as it should except one thing (there always is isnt there)

The problem is with the keyboard, when i type it works fine, but when in games (especially the WASD-keys) get sort of "stuck". Not stuck like they are physically stuck, its more like if i press two keys at once they often freeze so im still strafing left or forward even though im not touching the keys.

This is pretty annoying when playing (cant tell you how many times it got me killed )
