My laptop (compaq presario f700) is having a lot of problems with the keyboard. Certain keys, (backspace, g, h, and various others less frequently) fail to work unless I press very hard or maybe it's just that i'm holding them down for so long while pressing hard.
I took off the problem keys and looked under and there was a bit of dust but it didn't fix the problem. They all seem to fail at once and then all work again so i'm thinking it's a hardware/ connection issue?
I'm running vista and ubuntu and the problem appears in both (no spyware in vista either so not a keylog or something..)
Does anyone have any suggestions or know how to take the keyboard out (if this is advisable) and check out the connections?
