How can I fix the keyboard on my Acer Aspire laptop not work?

lasar selan April 10, 2013

My laptop in an Acer Aspire 4738. Some of its keyboard doesn’t work.

When I connect an external USB keyboard, its “shift” key changes to backspace. At first, I thought it was a corruption in my Windows 7, so I reinstalled it using Linux, but it still didn’t work. Because of frustration, I changed it again into Windows 7.

I am so stressed. Please help me! Thank you in advance for your answer and help!

      have you tried to uninstall the driver and reboot then let windows to install the driver, you can also open the laptop disconnect the keyboard cable then reconnect?

    If you can't fix it with the above suggestions on the software side, I would think you will have to replace it.
