The keyboard on my laptop has started to play up recently. The 'L' key in particular has become very temperamental, and doesn't respond half the time, meaning lots of back tracking and re-editing. Is there anyway to fix it?
I think you would probably need to speak to a computer whiz kid for sort this question! Although, I am interested to know the answer as I've had the same kind of problem with a couple of my laptop keys and it is quite a pain!
I dont think I can -in fact -I know I cannot!
In this day and age where keyboards start from around $20 I do not think I would even bother.
I now buy a keyboard that has a "backlight" -that is -when your fingers get near it, and if the room is dark, it lights up so you can see the keys without lights -I hate lights in the day so this is ideal for me.
This is of course more expensive, however I would not bother trying to fix a keyboard.
It depends on the keyboard. You could try purchasing a tin of compressed and spray between the keys when the computer is turned off. If you try removing the keys from some keyboards you may not be able to reconnect it. If you try removing some keys (especially those of a laptop) you can break off some of the latches that are beneath. If not done properly.
If after you tried using the compressed air the keys remain stiff try removing and cleaning the keys. If this doesn't work replace the keyboard. They're pretty reasonably priced.
