Having problems with your Acer Aspire 4720 Notebook ?
Certain keys on my keyboard will not work, such as the "0","-",and "/" keys
You can try to GENTLY pop/pry off the keys that do not work, and see if the rubber membrane, (it acts as the spring, when you press a key) is still there and in place, with power off and battery removed, try a q-tip with a LITTLE rubbing alcohol, and clean the area under the keys, replace the membrane, and pop the key back on and test. before I would buy a replacement keyboard, you may want to restore the PC to the factory settings,(ReInstall Windows, etc), and make sure its not a software/windows problem or if its a hardware/keyboard failure. if this helps please give a fixya rating thank you

Hi! I have a Sony Vaio VGN FW250j. The laptop worked just fine one day then the next, I noticed that certain keys (1,2,Q,W,S,Z)would not type in the certain characters when needed.

It is always kept in the case and is cleaned on a regular basis for dust....... PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!
