Title: keys
Post by: gibbler1010 on December 30, 2006, 01:41:38 am
Ok.. so my new laptop is having a bit of  a problem.. not a big one.. but an annoying one nonetheless.. for whatever reason.. my letter A key needs to be pressed particularly hard to work all of a sudden.. please note.. I do not eat and or drink around it, so this kinda boggles me.. like I said.. this  has just started out of nowhere... any suggestions would be appreciated. :-\

A is a very important letter. I hope you are able to fix your key asap. Did you try removing the key? (just apply a little force and it will pop off. Usually pull up from the bottom of it). Then maybe you can look at it?  Also, sometimes pressing SUPER hard on it a couple of times make the key start working properly again..    oh, if you take it off, use a little alcohol to clean it (just in case).  if all else fails, you might need a new one. if its still under warranty, you can get a free one.

yeah that a key is very important.. it could never be the letter Z or but anyways.. after fiddling with it a bit.. it does seem to be working better now.. thanks for the suggestion! ::)

Laptops sometimes act strangely like this. It happens to them all so I don't think it was your's or the manufacturers fault. I've seen plenty of laptops with keys that have just randomly fallen off as well.

Glad you got it working again.
