    Default can't type "1's & m's

    When I boot my lap top some times the "1's & m's" will type and sometimes they won't. The problem has gotten worse over time. I am copying and pasting the "m's & 1's to type this message. I have cleaned/blown out the keyboard (no effect), Done system restor (sometimes it works sometimes it dosent) and run numerous spyware & virus programs. Any ideas :?:

    On laptops the key connections are prone to wearing out. If you have the ability to connect an external keyboard, you could see if the keys work or not. If they work, the problem is with your keyboard, you'll have two choices, one to take it in to be repaired, or two purchase an external keyboard (they're cheap) and use that. Your laptop is fairly old by todays standard, so I wouldn't spend too much on it. Hope this helps.
