Stuck laptop key
« on: December 31, 2009, 07:11:17 PM »
I've got one key, the letter t that is not working properly. It's like something is stuck under one side of it. If I don't hit he kit at just the right angle, it won't make contact. It happened fairly recently. I had set up my desktop and put the laptop in its case. When the desktop got the worm, I got the laptop back out and the key was this way. I don't want to take it up to see what's underneath, since I don't know if it will go back on. Any suggestions?
O Lord, I know that the way of man is not in himself: it is not in man that walketh to direct his steps. O Lord, correct me, but with judgment; not in thine anger, lest thou bring me to nothing. Jeremiah  10:23-24

Try a strong vacuum and/or a can of air.

My niece was here and her laptop was missing several keys, I ask her how did she use it that way..she showed me..where to press.. and it worked. So it may be better to pull the key up and off if you cannot find the reason for the sticking.

A few shots of compressed air blew a hunk of something out and it works fine now.
