Having problems with your Sony VAIO Notebook ?
Keyboard worn out
\015 Many of the keys on my Vaio notebook will not register unless pressed very hard or at an awkward angle. The OC functions normal otherwise, and the keyboard looks fine too. But many of the keys on the keyboard don't work as they should. I've tried cleaning it, but no help.\015\012\015\012Any ideas?\015\012thanks,\015
That's funny because the same thing just started happening with my Sony laptop. I have been using a usb keyboard for a day or two now with no problems.
