Windows 7: issue with keyboard

11 May 2014   #11

Windows 7 Professional x64

Hi Abhi,
Is it always the samy keys? or do they change each time they stop working? and do they start working again after a restart or just when they feel like it?

Now you said you cleaned the laptop did you use any liquids on the keyboard when you cleaned it?

I ma still hunting round for a site that gives the disassembly of this model but even when I do find one the problem is going to be finding a replacement keyboard. A genuine one is probably going to be quite expensive and aftermarkets unless you know the store or site really well then you might end up with another dodgy board.

but on the brighter side it could be something simple like the small ribbon cable form the board to the machine that needs reseating or something but until I can find the site for taking it out I am stuck.

Hi there. Don't know if this is the right subforum. I am often using the US international keyboard. To change certain letters you use the AltGr (right alt) key. For me, it is awkward to use this key.
