Any chance liquid was spilled on it?

Hopefully it is a keyboard fault not the Motherboard.

Keyboards are usually relatively easy to replace. Mine were 25-40 on a 3yr old Compaq. Now under 15.

I still haven't fixed my coffee-ruined one though since I found a lovely Logitech K230 USB wireless keyboard which is exactly the right width for my 15.6" laptop and was only 11 a few months ago.

You could use any USB keyboard as a temporary measure (or PS/2 with adapter).


Post your laptop model number to help with further replies.

Well it seems to have randomly fixed itself for now. I'll update the thread if it happens again
