the buttons don't work basically anymore - where can I get it replaced - ANYONE??
of typing with your face, isn't it?
That's an adventure and some bill paying in one go. Now you just need to find somewhere to waste some time on the internet
because that post made complete and utter sense.
a telepathy PC now?
its all broken and rubbish - surely somehwhere will fix it? Its a viao and Sony charge 30000000000Lira or something just for sending it off for repair.
its a laptop?
but it's much cheaper to buy any old USB keyboard (like, I think Argos even do that shit now) and just plug that in and use it.
Have a look. You can probably get one for a fiver from PC world.
i did the same query only the other week. i'm glad to see that prole elicits about 7 times more replies than me. hmmmph.
seriously though, how easy is it to replace the keyboard? cos it needs replacing because the rogue v key which keeps repeating eternally just punctuates everything you type in using a usb keyboard and there's no way to override the laptop keyboard.
that might do it. If you google removing keyboard keys you might get the information. Normally you can just use a flathead screwdriver to remove it.
Try this: Right click on my Computer and choose properties or go to control panel and then choose 'System' as the settings.
Then go to the Hardware tab and click the Device Manager button. On that list are 'human interface devices'. You could try disabling the keyboard from there.
apparently the harddrive works in someone elses computer.... so... bad news. DAMMIT.
is it the power supply, the cpu or the motherboard? All quite cheap, worry not
