The Sony VAIO Y series laptops are known for their stylish looks and excellent performance.

The Sony VAIO Y series laptops feature a keyboard with well spaced keys. People who own a VAIO Y series laptop say that they do not feel any discomfort even after typing for several hours. Sometimes people might face problems while using the keyboard, which could be due to the following reasons.
- Keyboard driver Issues
- Obstacles or dust under the keys
- Hardware issues
Keyboard driver issues
Sometimes keyboards stop functioning due to issues with the associated drivers. Problems due to this reason can be solved by updating the drivers. If you still have problems, then you can manually install the updated drivers. You can find the latest driver for your device from the official Sony website. Make sure that you download the driver that is compatible with the operating system installed in your laptop. If you install the wrong drivers, then your keyboard will not work.
Obstacles or dust under the keys
Keyboards are easily affected by dust. We may see that the gaps between the keys are susceptible to accumulation of dust. Sometimes, we may even accidentally drop small particulate matter over the keyboard. All these can cause the keyboard to malfunction. In most situations, the keyboard will start to work once the dust particles are removed. Removing dust particles from normal keyboards is easy. But the integrated keyboards present in laptops are hard to clean. Hence it is advised to contact professionals for assistance.
If you are unsuccessful after trying out all the above mentioned solutions, then probably there is a hardware issue. Installing a new keyboard on your laptop requires skilled professionals, so do not ever try this on your own. It would be better to contact a professional who has experience in this field.
