Submission + - Laptop Keyboard Surgery

Anonymous Coward writes: "The Dell Latitude CPx line of laptop is notorious for having keyboards go bad and mine was no different. Not all the keys would stop working, just the 8, I and K keys. I've tried all the various fixes but to no avail, cleaning the contacts, removing parts of the metal keyboard tray that was supposedly shorting, etc, ect. They would work for a few days then it would be back to typing with the on-screen keyboard. If I pounded my fist in just the right place I could get it to work but only until I moved the laptop again. This was getting irritating, time for some surgery."

If all else fails, lower your standards.

Working...
