Suddenly I cannot use the digit for one. When I try to type one it opens the chrome browser and the letter that comes after p in the alphabet won't type. Every other key is working I think. Please help.
David, thank you for your reply. This is a tablet not laptop so it has only a very small hole on the back that wouldn't take the end of a paper clip and I haven't anything smaller. I shall ask a neighbour in the morning for a pin or needle. I was unable to do the battery reset. The letter key that doesn't work opens a small speaker level box at the top left of the screen. I took the 2 keys off today to see if there was any obvious dust underneath them. Nothing. My techie has given up. He hasn't had my tablet as we have a complete lock down in New Zealand and I am unable to visit him. I suspect my tablet is maybe on its lasts legs at 5 years old. Caryl
David, Thanks again. I am not keen to do this as I don't have a current back up, saved most to a thumb drive but that's out of date. I'll go to the forum now. I used an earring in the pinhole but that made no difference.
It's not a chromebook.Model is Aspire R3-131T
Not going ahead with reset. No guarantee it would fix the issues. I'll probably remove the keys to decrease my frustration. Will shop for a new laptop when things settle and we have free movement. Could be 3 months though. Appreciate all your help, David. Caryl
