Answers :

You can probably just get a new keyboard for it. Yu can find one cheap and easy by going to ebay and typing in keyboard for your particular laptop model. Or you can find one by going to your computer manufacturer's site. But Ebay would be cheaper. Keyboards on laptops are relatively simple to replace/ install. You could probably do it yourself and save yourself some money. But if you don't have time to, or just don't think you could do it successfully, and you are wanting to pay someone to do it, then the price ranges from repairer to repairer; but still, it should not cost you no more that $100.00 to $150.00, if that much. It could even be cheaper than that; i am just guessing. If we knew each other, I would replace it for free for you, as long as you bought the keyboard for it. But still, you could probably do it on your own. Hope this helps.
