Some keyboard keys not working

The problem is at that at times, the backspace key, the "g" and "h" key don't work. it seems like the rest of the keys work. re-starting the computer helps. but the problem does return. pushing hard on the key and hitting it several times also helps. i am not sure if the problem is hardware or software. any solutions? is this a major problem?

Sounds like water or another liquid has infiltrated the keyboard under those keys causing, a bad connection between , the keys and the motherboard. if its under warranty take it in for repair. If not lookinto getting a non functional model like your laptop and swapping out the motherboard.

Often this can be a build up of oils from your hands even if you are particular about not eating or drinking and haven't spilled. If the warranty has expired, I'd try a can of compressed air and try to blow out as much as possible around the keys to clear out any debris.It may work and it will be cheaper than picking up a replacement, even a non-working one.

My backspace in not working at all suddenly


Get a can of compressed air and attach the straw, gently lift up key with fingernail and give several blasts of air to clean out the possible buildup of dirt under the key. If this should fail you will probably need to replace the keyboard, go to www.ebay.com and type make and model of laptop, refine search to keyboard.

Back space key seems to stick in the on position (electronically not physically)when pressed and released. If the key pad is removed and the backspace pressed with a pen it seems to work normally.


that happens when the spring/switch of the specific key go bad, normally in such cases the entire keypad have to be changed but if you are lucky then it is possible that only one key will be changed.... so without wasting time get it repaired from some professional
