Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Repeating 's' key

\015 Thanks for answering but I forgot to mention the fact that the keyboard is a laptop! Do you still have the same answer or is there any chance that it could be another solution to my problem.\015

Answers :

Well...slightly different :) The reason is still the same. The solution is slightly different.
\015\012
\015\012The keyboard for almost all laptops is also a plug-in and is separate from the rest of the unit. You usually have to remove the front frame from the screen to remove the top frame for the keyboard and the laptop. Screws to do this are often covered by stick-on circles of plastic or rubber. They may even be covered by labels on the back. This helps the manufacturer know if it has been tampered with to determine warranty. If it is out of warranty then do whatever needs to be done.

\015\012Removing the frame around the keyboard there will be screws holding it to the bottom frame or motherboard. Once you have removed these then there is a flat mylar cable that is connected to the motherboard, usually at the top. Putting your thumb and index finger around the connector, pull towards the keyboard. It should slide just a fraction of an inch and the flat mylar cable will be free. So will the keyboard. Now, you might be able to take the keyboard apart from the back (lots of small parts may fall out!) You can look for anything spilled or any debris on the part and try to clean it. You can use rubbing alcohol to remove any obvious spills (Coke or other cola products are especially an issue).
\015\012
\015\012Connect it back up (push the cable back in the cable and reverse the process. You don't have to put back on all the frames to try it.
\015\012
\015\012If the keyboard is still having problems try to get a replacement on ebay. The most expensive part of a laptop is the screen (around 200 to 500 usually). I got an entire non-working laptop (just for parts) for $75 once. You should ask the seller if the keyboard was working before you buy it. Good luck, hope this helps.
