Having problems with your HP Pavilion dv7-1130us laptop ?

Acer Aspire Keys not working

\015 I have an Acer Aspire laptop and for a while have had this same really irritating problem. When i boot windows xp everything works ok. Then after a minute or two certain keys start to fail. They are always the same ones 1, 3, -, t, u, p, j and right arrow. They will still work either if i press really hard or mash a whole mess of keys at the same time as them, ending up with asdpafoaudfsuaasdpf for example every time i want a u or a p. All they keys seem physically fine. If i leave the laptop on for a while, say an hour or so, full functionality returns. I've had this for so long now that i can't remember doing anything to have caused it. Is this a software or hardware issue? Why does it resolve itself / happen in the first place? I have tried doing a windows reinstall but no joy. At this point any advice will be greatly appreciated.\015

Hi sp_ramsell. From what you have described my first thought is that the ribbon cable that connects the keyboard to the motherboard is slightly loose. Once the laptop heats up, all the contacts on the ribbon cable make connection. I would not recommend taking the laptop apart to fix this yourself if you have never worked on one before. The ribbon cables for the touchpad and keyboard are very short and it can be very difficult to keep them seated while you put it back together. There are also other concerns such as ESD (electrostatic discharge) which can ruin the laptop. Best bet would be to take it to a repair shop. Hope this helps!
