everytime i turn my laptop on fewer and fewer keys work. ive no viruses, any idea why or wahat to do?
how are you typing this then? Eh?
would someone ave any real advice?
and hit it
get your rops off honey
First thing to try is to take one of the keys off, try and clean the pressure pad with a cloth or something and then put the key back on and see if it works. Try this on a few of the keys. Don't be afraid to pull the key off, as they will be fine with you doing this.
If that doesn't work at all, then you are looking at a replacement keyboard. You can normally pick these up for about £30, but then the problem is actually replacing it. Have you ever done any replacing of parts before? If so, if you tell me the make and model, I can get you a manual of how to do it. If not, then a repair shop may charge you about £50 to do it. It's about a 30 minute job.
Alternatively, you could just buy a USB keyboard and carry that around with the laptop.
If you want any more info, let me know.
