Laptop keyboard being an utter b******
« on: Thursday 26 October 2017, 08:09:47 PM »
Last few days my laptop keyboard has had both shift keys stop working. So no easy capital letters, @ signs etc... very frustrating. They might work for a second then they'd crap out on me again.

I updated the keyboard driver settings, cleaned underneath the physical keys, played around with the UK/US language settings and even rolled back to a previous version of Windows. No dice.

Now my s, p and backspace keys are beginning to crap out too periodically. I've googled the issue but can't see anything.

Repair shop time?

That'll be a circuit board issue.  Probably dust or water.

Cheers neesy - found a disassembly guide, and took a minivac to underneath the keyboard :aww:
