Keyboard (broken?) Help
« on: July 27, 2014, 12:06:38 pm »
I spilled milk (yeah...) on my keyboard and now certain keys aren't working  ._.  but what's weird is that I spilled it on the very top of the keyboard yet the ctrl keys (both of them) don't work. Is this fixable?


Ctrl+alt+fn doesn't work.

Let it dry and hope for the best. Otherwise: keyboards are cheap if you know where to look. I get mechanical keyboards for €5 in thriftshops. I have about 3 in stock so I never run out :D
If you like my work: why not give me an internet?

Yeah I would just buy a new one if I was you. Over here they're $15 brand new. Plus your keyboard will eventually smell like rotten milk anyway >.<

If you pay $15 new for a keyboard, don't expect any quality nor comfort using it. :P

Oh you can get a brand new keyboard for $5 too if you don't mind the letters coming off in a week :P

It depends where you get it. At Zellers we had plenty of decent $15 keyboards and Walmart too, but Zellers closed. There were better ones but they were too large vertically or were wireless.

Well it's okay for desktop keyboards, but for laptop keyboards it's something else...

Remember the day the walrus started to fly...

I finally cleared my sig after 4 years you're happy now?

I ended up getting an okay one at Walmart for not too much $. I'm so glad to have the ctrl key back though!
