Dear Computer Lady:
My Sony Laptop no longer types letters “M” “N” or “Z”.. Otherwise it works fine. It is about ten years old, but does work fine for what I use it for.
Is it time to chuck this laptop in the recycle bin or is there a way to fix this? Naturally it is difficult to answer letters with these letters missing. I use it for game playing.
Thanks for your help, Blue Willow
Dear Blue Willow,
Laptop computers are great for working on the go, the are light and portable. Unfortunately, however, fixing a laptop is always a bit harder than fixing a desktop computer.
Fixing the keyboard on a ten year old laptop is not going to be worth the cost, but if the laptop has a working USB port, you could always try using an external keyboard.
I was able to find a basic USB keyboard like this one for less than ten dollars at Amazon. At that price, it would be worth trying on your laptop.
I hope this helps you with your typing.
