Why my Keyboard is not Working Correctly? – The Reason behind
There may be a couple of reasons why your Keyboard’s keys are not working correctly. Let’s go through them one by one.
1) With the passing time and rough usage, it is usual that the dust accumulates inside your Keyboard, and because of that, the keys are unresponsive and sticking.
In this case, we highly recommend checking keystroke twice with the keyboard test instead of once.
2) If you mainly see a not responding error, there are high chances that there is a connection issue between the Keyboard and computer.
3) Finally, in the case of incorrect output, the keys may be installed are wrong, or there could be circuit damage between them.
How to Fix a Faulty keyboard?
First and foremost, use our online virtual keyboard tester to identify the faulty keys, and after that, you can go ahead with the below-mentioned steps.
1) In the case of dust, turn the keyboard upside down and gently tap to release the dust from inside.
Alternatively, you can also use a blower or a compressed air cleaner to blow away the dirt.
2) In the case of spilling a soda or a coffee, you should get it checked with the hardware expert, or maybe buy a new one.
3) In the case of not responding error, double-check the connection between the Keyboard and the computer. If there is nothing wrong, try a different plug, and if that too doesn’t work, then check for the twisted or bent port because that could be why the connection gets unstable and results in the not responding error.
4) In the case of a changed layout, go to keyboard settings and change to QWERTY format because it is a standard layout.
5) In the case of outdated software, head over to the manufacturer’s website, download the updated version, install it and restart your computer.
