Keys not working on mini laptop advent 4490, only few working on right hand side of keyboard


Answers :

Look to see if it has a port where you can plug in a regular key boad usually on the back or side.. If a regular keey board works then the MiniKeyboard on the laptop has become dirty and corroded. That would require you take it apart and replace or clean it. i have had luck spraying it with a light pass of WD40 that will absorbe moisture.
