Okay, this is an issue that I've been having for a while now, but it's getting worse, so I'm asking if any of you might know a fix for it before I throw my laptop out the window. XP
I've been having trouble even using my laptop since the left Ctrl key and number pad Enter key have been sticking, which causes the whole machine to lock up and beep constantly at me. I finally popped the damn key caps off today and found that those two keys each have a metal hinge on them.
I have to shake them extremely hard several times to get the hinge to come back out, and I think this may be what's causing the issues. So, to anyone who knows about laptops, are the hinges important? Is there some way to make them not stick? Seriously, this is driving me fucking crazy.
And in case you're wondering, I don't want to replace the entire keyboard since that would cost $35+, and it's just these TWO keys that are fucking up.
