Hi, can you try to connect an external keyboard and see if it works?
If it does, you probably need to replace your keyboard.
They sell for around $20, see HERE.

Tech Support Specialist: James, Sr. Computer Support Expert replied 8 years ago
You have USB ports on this laptop, and so you can connect an external USB keyboard :)

If that works, you need to replace the laptop keyboard - they cost around $20.

WHAT IS A PSA PRE- BOOT ERROR COD 0146

Tech Support Specialist: James, Sr. Computer Support Expert replied 8 years ago
PSA is Pre-Assessment Boot - it is a process the computer goes through before booting to make sure everything is ok.
0146 means there are messags in the system log - probably about a a defective keyboard.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
