How do I fix my keyboard?


The 'k' key on the keyboard does not respond when pressed. To my knowledge, nothing has been spilled on it.

Keyboards do break occasionally You may just have to purchase a replacement If you decide to replace it, be sure to note the model and check the type of connection that plugs into the computer More than likely you have a P/S-2 type plug, but it's best to know for sure before you go to the store.

You can use this opportunity to upgrade to a different style keyboard or one that has multiple functions Keyboards can be relatively inexpensive or quite expensive They can also be very simple, or very functional In most cases, it is less expensive to buy a new one than to have one repaired.
