Laptop Keys Stopped working - Lenovo Ideapad Z500 Win8

Q: Laptop Keys Stopped working - Lenovo Ideapad Z500 Win8

Hi Guys,

I am a member of the sevenforums and currently have a win8 laptop so thought I'd sign up here (seems to be the same people behind both forums).

I'm having a little trouble and would really appreciate some feedback.

My Lenovo ideapad z500 had 2 keys (K and I) that stopped working (they worked on the touchscreen) and then after that the delete, 8, and arrow keys topped working. Not sure why.

Before I get the keyboard replaced I'm wondering if it could be something else? There's no water damage and I haven't dropped it so I'm confused. I was told it has to be water damage but maybe 1 drop from the condensation on a glass of water is all I can think that may have affected it.

Would be great for some input on this issue.

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.

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

I was told it has to be water damage



Not true. In fact, water in the keyboard normally does not cause permanent damage. That is, once the water dries, all works again - most of the time. But that does depend on many variables - type of keyboard membrane, how much water, if just water (no sugars or cream, for example), and how much dust, dirt, oily hair/dander, cigarette smoke, cookie crumbs, etc. are under the keys when the water was spilled. The greater damage generally comes when the water works it way through the keyboard and into the computer's electronics.

I would try a regular PC keyboard first to see what happens. If all the keys work properly with a standard USB keyboard, then you can be pretty certain it is the notebook keyboard at fault, and not something more serious.

Hello, I started having an issue with my z500 laptop and here is how it went. First I updated my laptop from Windows 8 to 8.1, then after the update was finalizied I shut my laptop down, then next day I woke up and attempted to use my laptop it used to open but the screen was fully blank. I can hear the fans moving and the laptop was on but it had no cursor and the screen seemed off. I read online that you had to connect it to a computer and manually alter the settings there, my computer was not functioning that time so I decided to leave it till later and use this laptop as an alternative. 3 weeks passed and when I attempted to open it it did not respond at all. No fans running, no blinking, nothing at all, dead. I tried to charge it it still didn't work, I left it overnight charging still nothing. I opened up the laptop removed my battery and put it back in after 1 minute still no difference. I've literally removed my battery 3 times and tried all I can to fix the laptop yet it isn't even charging. I am thinking this could be because I haven't installed the Battery manager or battery firmware for Lenovo when updating to 8.1 but I am not sure. Please help me open my laptop I have a lot of work there that can't be thrown away. Thanks!

A:Lenovo laptop z500 not working

Does holding the OneKey recovery button work? I think you'll need to perform a battery firmware but for that you need to boot the computer. Also, try draining the residue power. To do this, simply hold down the power button for 30 seconds

Hi, the latptop is only about 2.5 months old now... 3 weeks ago randomly the keyboard's keys on the laptop itself stopped working. No clue why, Ive checked drivers, did a reboot, tried safe mode, etc... It's only on the laptop itself. The keys that work are tyhg caps lock num lock and maybe a couple others... Ive never spilled anything on the laptop nor have I ever dropped it. I was in love with this laptop for the price I paid for it at Best Buy until the keyboard stopped working on it... It just randomly happened and I'm not sure why. The keys don't appear to stick or anything like that... (normal keystrokes just nothing happens in result of clicking them) I am using a keyboard plugged into it right now... I really need to get this fixed and I'm very upset at the fact it happened just 2 months after the purchase... So that cancels out my bestbuy 1 month warranty right there. I really can't deal with this much longer considering the fact that I was planning to use this laptop for my work.. If I can't get a simple easy fix I will have to find something new somewhere else... sorry to say. Praying for an easy solution/fix.

Dear Friends, Am using Lenovo ideapad G570 from last 2months in my laptop some keys not working  (N,B,Left,Right,Up Arrow and Space bar) Kindly Suggest me For resolving the issue.

A:My lenovo ideapad G570 some keys are not working

hi vickydy,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
    First make sure this is a hardware concern.
Run an Onscreen Keyboard, by Pressing (Windows key + R) then type in OSK then hit enter
   Now on your onscreen Keyboard click on the keys that are not working see if they responding with the Onscreen keyboard.
     If the keys responded using the Onscreen Keyboard, Then your Keyboard hardware is bad.
Either you call Technical Support to have them repair the unit in / out of warranty repair OR Ask them where to get the part for it and have the keyboard replaced.
 
Hope this helps
Cheers!

Product key is stored in BIOS, so there is no need to use any app to read it.Download a tool to create bootable media from Microsoft website and install Windows 8.1 using it:https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows8 Moreover at first, you may try to restore your Windows 10 to factory state (do a backup of all important data first).

Hi utkutrk , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
You can try testing individual key specially FN and spacebar if it is working.
 
Turn off the machine and disconnect the ac charger and battery if you have the tools.
Press down the power button for 12 seconds to drain flea power.
Place back the battery and connect the ac charger.
Restart to check if backit keyboard works ( test further with FN + spacebar pressing 2-4 times).
 
Update us how it goes.

Hello there. Yesterday, I bought the Ideapad 310-15isk, and it's phenomenal in many aspects. However, I'm a bit bothered by the extensive keyboard this laptop has, most importantly, the pagination commands on the arrow keys. I've been meaning to find a solution to disable those and just make them work on the Numpad since it's really bothersome to type on and then go all the way back because of the return pagination key. Is there any solution for this to unbind those commands only on the arrow keys?

I have a MSI GT780DXR a when i type with the "a" key it respond or i get "a0a" and other random characters. also the number keys on the number pad do the same. I tried using device manager and uninstalling and reinstalling the keyboard drivers but it didn't work. I also adjusted the language settings so see if that would correct it but it did not. Please help me. This is a system problem because it was spontaneous and worked 20 minutes ago. HELP!!!!

A:laptop keys stopped working. is system problem

Shut down the laptop, take the battery out, and keep it out for five minutes. Then plug it back in. If that doesn't work, see if there are drivers for the keyboard on the manufacturers website.

1) My 2 year old ACER Aspire 5 keyboard just stop working in a couple of capacities. First, the numbers on the 10 key wouldn't type at all. Checked Num Lock, fine, then tried to type numbers at top of keyboard, well, some typed the right number but most didn't or typed more than one number.

2) Ran Webroot Anti-spyware and Anti-Virus, clean. Then I shook my computer to see if any crumbs or foreign materials were throwing something off, clean. Took out battery, nada.

3) Restored computer to the day before any problems. Changed nothing. Pressed every key to see if something was stuck or key broken. None.

4) The Delete, Backspace, Enter and Space Bar do NOT work at all. So basically, the entire keyboard is not working due to something. If I type any one key, some of them type what I wanted but continue to type the letter or number until I log out of my Google Engine.

5) I have always had issues with the keyboard. I will be typing along and the cursor will randomly go back to previous sentences and start typing what I am currently typing. It is so annoying. Why is it hopping all over the place?

6) A computer major friend who teaches computer classes said to write to Google and maybe I would find others with similar problems. I found several "sticky keys" problems but none on point with none of the keys working or working properly. He suggested perhaps a Trojan Horse virus but my sweeps come up clean...

7) Can anyone help me???

Thank you,

A:Laptop keys stopped working and some type the wrong thing...

It could be a virus. But It also could just be your keyboard is bad. You may need to take it to your local repair shop if it. Is a laptop and have them check the keyboard out for you. I really do not think it is a virus.
