Keyboard

Hi.

Noticed that the space on my laptop keyboard is getting very iffy. It works - but nailed any hope of speed typing. Which is fine if I just browse net - but work on it sucks at the moment. Been using it a lot over the past 6 weeks instead of desktop.

Anyone got any suggestions on fixing it - is really annoying having to conciensiouly hit the key. Admittedly I could just use a USB plugin - but not much good if i want to go mobile.

[Tosh Satellite Pro L10]

Thanks.

I had the same problem with my 'U' key on my laptop. It's broken now, but...yeah..=(.

As long as you don't pound it as I did, you should be fine. A small amount of blu-tac underneath the spacebar might fix it temporarily. =)

Cheap, but effective!

You could just plug in a standard keyboard when you need to work, you can get ones which fold up.
